We are so happy to welcome Mimi as our Guest Designer for this challenge! You probably know and follow her as dasmimz on Instagram. She has been impressing us with her amazing creativity and we are so excited to share her New Year projects! Look for her second card to inspire you next week!

Mimi was inspired by the cool bokeh image in the Inspiration Board to create this amazing design! The Snow Much Fun and Den Sweet Den bears are celebrating the new year in style! Mimi used Let’s Bokeh to make a festive backdrop for her cheery scene! To make this an interactive card, Mimi used the Waving Pull-Tab Starter Set to make the bear wave his paws with the party accessories.

Now let’s check out the Happy New Year projects by our amazing Design Team!

The Really High Five critters are flyin’ by with Happy New Year wishes on Caly‘s fun design! She used the Puffy Cloud Backdrop: Portrait to create the that awesome background which she blended with pretty pastel inks! She used Oliver’s Stitched 123s in glittery gold and a Fancy Wavy Banner to stamped with a Winter Wavy Sayings sentiment to complete the happy greeting!

Franci’s mice are baking up a sweet wish for the new year! She combined A Creature Was Stirring and Baked with Love to create this lovely confection!

Samantha was inspired by the bokeh image in the inspiration board! She used Let’s Bokeh to create shiny clear embossed “bubbles” on a beautifully inked backdrop! The greeting is found in the Let’s Bokeh set as well.

Karin‘s card is so beautiful with its colorful Stitched Poinsettia and Oliver’s Stitched 123s in metallic gold! I love the pretty Quilted Backdrop behind the flower and all the fun layers!

Christy‘s beautiful interactive card is a wonderful mix of old and new! She created a Magic Iris Snow Globe Add-On design featuring Ready Set Snow, Let It Shine papers and a greeting from Merry Messages!

Samantha used a festive color palette with shiny gold and gray to create this happy new year card! She combined Scripty Cheers with cute images from Party Animal with Metallic Gold and Shimmer cardstock. The star in the background is our classic Puffy Star Stackables cut from Cream Sprinkle and Shine Let It Shine paper!

Jessica‘s design features a Woodland Critter Hugger decked out in accessories from the Winter Add-On on a tall slimline card! When you open the critters arms the greeting combining Happy Happy Happy Add-On and Scripty Cheers is completed using Finley’s 123s!

Joyce created a lovely card with wishes for a year filled with happiness using Tree Before ‘n Afters! It is simply beautiful!

Jenn is the bringing the sparkly bling and bold bokeh in her new year design! She used Oliver’s Stitched ABCs and 123s to spell out the Chunky and Prisma Glitter sprinkled greeting! She finished the message on a Fancy Folded Banner!

Stirring Up Holiday Critter Fun in the Kitchen with Jess!

We hope you are having fun with the Happy Holiday Critters challenge! It will be open for 2 more weeks so you have plenty of time to get crafty with your critter sets and play along!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Holiday Critters challenge! This is such a fun way to focus on all the adorable critters Lawn Fawn has to offer!

To start I blended Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink over the Brick stencil onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock focusing the color on the top right of each brick to give it a little color. I wanted the effect of white subway tiles in my kitchen scene! Next I used Copic markers to sketch a granite countertop and adhered it to the brick background panel.

Then I stamped a bunch of images from A Creature was Stirring, Baked with Love, and Sprinkled with Joy using Copic-friendly Jet Black ink and then colored them with Copic markers. I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and added a few accents with a white gel pen.

I arranged all the images onto my kitchen scene and adhered them with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape for a little extra dimension. Then I die-cut the Mini String of Lights from white cardstock and silver glitter cardstock. I colored the light bulbs with Copic markers and then adhered them to the silver light strand. I adhered them to the scene and then added a sentiment from A Creature was Stirring heat-embossed on black cardstock. Once everything was adhered I added a little glitter to the lights and coated them with Nuvo crystal glaze for shine. Finally I finished the card by adding a little grit paste to the spoons and scene for a little messy frosting! 😉

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!

Jess
