Christy’s Cool New Year Yeti

Merry Christmas to all of our Lawn Fawnatics friends who are celebrating today! We wish you the happiest of holidays!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our New Year Challenge! This challenge will be open until Sunday, January 3 at 11:59PM ET.

For this card I used the adorable Yeti or Not stamp set, along with an ornament from Joy to the Woods and the mountain range from Over the Mountain Borders. My idea for this card is that the yeti is making off with the New Year’s Eve ball! I colored my images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I cut out a Stitched Circle Stackable out of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. I blended on Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Speckled Egg to create my sky. I splattered on some Liquid Stardust and Copic Opaque White to create some stars. Then I die cut the mountain range to fit and layered it over top.

I trimmed down my Let It Shine 6×6 patterned papers with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables for the cream print with the gold foiled dot. I also selectively die-cut the pink polka dot with the Stitched Party Banners die and cut the aqua and white stripe with the Scalloped Circle Stackables. I layered these onto a Speckled Eggshell card base and popped my focal panel up with foam tape. Then I adhered my images and added an Everyday Sentiment Banner stamped in Manatee Ink. I finished the card off with a sprinkle of sequins, and some Stickles glitter glue because the new year needs to sparkle!

If you’d like to see how this card came together, I will have a video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty, on Monday, December 28th. Since it’s Christmas and I already have one Lawn Fawn video up today (with the card featured on the Lawn Fawn blog), I thought I would spread the love over two days!

In the meantime, you still have time to play along with our New Year Challenge! We can’t wait to see what you create!


Have a lovely weekend, friends!

Samantha’s Woodland Scene Inspired by the Card Sketch

Samantha joins us today to share a beautiful woodland scene with a nod to the sketch! Our Card Sketch challenge will be open until this Sunday, November 1 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha combined the “woods” sets: Into the Woods and Joy to the Woods to create this gorgeous design! The birch trees found in Joy to the Woods represent the columns in the card sketch. She left the sentiment in the same place as on the sketch. She white embossed it on vellum then fussy cut it out for a really elegant look!

Samantha colored the fox from Into the Woods and the little cardinal from Joy to the Woods with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to give her design a bright pop of color!

To create an awesome finishing touch before assembling the card, Samantha stenciled the Snowflake Trio on the Black Licorice background with white embossing paste.

Thank you for sharing with us today, Samantha! This card is just so gorgeous!


We can’t wait to see your Card Sketch creativity! Remember the Card Sketch challenge closes on Sunday night!
