Jenn’s Lots of Love Inspiration

Happy Friday, Fawnatics friends! This is the last weekend for our Lots of Love challenge; have you joined the fun yet? Jenn is with us today to share a super cute Valentine card that I’m sure will inspire you!

I love how Jenn dressed the Holiday Helpers in pink and red for this love-filled design! She combined them with an envelope and speech bubbles from Love Letters, one of the Candy Hearts, and letters from Oliver’s Stitched ABCs!

To ground this sweet little collage, Jenn used Stitched Scalloped Borders to create a pretty panel. Then she layered it on a card base covered with Let It Shine 6×6 paper with shiny gold polka dots!

Thanks so much, Jenn for this beautiful Lots of Love inspiration!

The Lots of Love challenge will be open until this Sunday, January 31 at 11:59PM ET. Click HERE to head to the challenge post where you can link up your entry!

Have a wonderful weekend! Happy crafting!

A Super Happy Holiday Critter Card with Christy

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Happy Holiday Critters Challenge! I love making scene cards, and I combined so many different sets into this one. I used Beary Happy Holidays, Cheery Christmas, Mice on Ice, Holiday Helpers, Yeti or Not, and Simply Celebrate Winter. I colored all my images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the background, I used a piece of bokeh paper from the Snow Day Remix 6×6 pad for the sky. I added stitching detail to the edges with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, then added some tree silhouettes with the Stitched Tree Border. Overtop of that, I layered two Stitched Hillside Borders, one glued flat to the card, and the other popped up with foam tape.

I cut out an icy pond using the Bayou Backdrop and heat embossed a little swirl of ice skating tracks from Mice on Ice. I added that to the lower left corner of the card. Then I added my images into the scene with a combo of liquid glue and foam tape.

The little snowman was from Simply Celebrate Winter. I just masked him off from the rest of his friends when stamping and used the dies to cut out most of him, and my Cutter Bee scissors to trim down the rest.


To finish things off, I added a sentiment stamped in Bubblegum Ink and trimmed out with an Everyday Sentiment Banner, and a bit of Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle.

I also finished off the inside using Simply Celebrate Winter, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

The Happy Holiday Critters challenge will be open until Sunday December 6 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Christy!
