A Delightful Heart Day Card with Samantha!

Hey everyone, Samantha here wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day! I have created a sweet little Valentine’s scene inspired by the current Lots of Love challenge! I love the washy rainbow color palette and the casual hearts on the inspiration board. Rainbow colors are always fun to work with and they bring such a fresh look to your project.

The sweet little ducks from the Rub-A-Dub-Dub stamp set are so expressive and adorable. The ducks are having fun dancing under the raining hearts. The tiny umbrella from the Elphie Selfie stamp set is scaled perfectly for the ducks. I stamped the pond from the Dad + Me stamp set in the Fresh Lavender ink. I colored shadows on top of the ink with my Copic makers. I love to color on top of colored ink, because it is a quick and easy way to add depth to a flatter stamped image. I added rainbow color in the umbrellas and the Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters rainbow!

The Just Stitching Hearts die cuts are so amazing for backgrounds. You can layer the different hearts together for an interesting look. They add a fun tonal element behind your scene.

You still have time to enter the Lots of Love challenge! The challenge is open until Sunday, February 16th 11:59 Eastern Time. Please check out the challenge for tons of inspiration.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have the a wonderful day!


Wishing our Fawnatics friends a happy, crafty weekend!

An Out of this World Card with Joyce!

Happy Wednesday, Fawnatics friends! Today Joyce shares an amazingly adorable card with a simple design that uses just one stamp set and one die set!

To create the beautiful background, Joyce did some ink blending then she used Just Stitching Hearts to add some love-inspired detail! Then she added some white paint splatters for even more interest!

She created her sweet outer space scene with Out of This World images that she colored in pretty pastel Copic colors! The sentiment was stamped directly on the background to finish this simply amazing card!

Thanks for sharing this adorable Lots of Love inspiration with us today, Joyce!

The Lots of Love challenge will be open until Sunday, February 16th at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

Christy’s Pretty Pink Flamingo Inspiration!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our For the Birds Challenge! This time I was totally feeling these sweet feathered friends from Flamingo Together. I combined them with some flora and fauna from Critters in the Jungle and Manatee-rific. All of the images were colored with Copic markers and trimmed out with the matching dies.

For my focal panel, I die cut some Ballet Slippers cardstock with the Stitched Journaling Card die. I stamped my sentiment in a combo of Wild Rose and Black Licorice ink and then embossed two of the Just Stitching Hearts. Then I adhered my images.

For the card base, I used more Ballet Slippers cardstock to make a standard A2 sized card, then I trimmed out some Spring Fling pattered papers with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables so you get that detail on the edge, and also get a little peek of that cardstock showing through. I popped up my focal panel with foam tape and added a little Star Dust Stickles to the flower centers to finish off the card.

I also did some stamping on the inside, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. For now, why not grab those bird stamps and get crafty yourself! There’s still plenty of time to enter our challenge!

The For the Birds challenge will be open until Sunday February 2 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see what you create!


Happy crafting from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!
