Samantha takes the holiday fun to the beach in a whimsical card featuring Penguin Party and Christmas Fishes!
The penguins are celebrating a festive holiday on the beach! Samantha built this happy scene with Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape and Simple Stitched Wavy Borders. Instead of snowy details she colored the hills, igloo and snowman in sandy colors and replaced the traditional Christmas tree with one made of seaweed from Christmas Fishes. Then she added the sentiment from Joy to the Woods to finish this Christmas in July design!
Thank you for this delightfully whimsical inspiration, Samantha! It’s such a fun idea!
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!
