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!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 60: Create a Scene

Happy September, Fawnatics! We are back with a new challenge to inspire your creativity! This time we want you to “create a scene” on a card or project!

We would love for you to share your creativity by linking up your crafty projects at the end of this post! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. This challenge will run for 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, September 15th at 11:59PM ET.

For each challenge, we will randomly select an entry to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop! We will also be highlighting a few of your fabulous projects at the close of each challenge! By linking your projects to our challenges you will give permission for us to post your work to this blog and our social media sites. Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

Let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired to “create a scene”!

Christy‘s whimsical scene combines lots of critter sets, from Critters at the Dog Park to Wheelie Like You and Keep on Swimming, sharing comical antics! The “friends furever” sentiment from Meow You Doin’ makes this a perfect friendship card!

Franci‘s scene is a framed art piece that’s a clever shaker! She used images from Toboggan Together with a cool inky sky background and filled the scene with “snowballs” that move as you gently shake the picture!

Birthday cards are the perfect opportunity to create a cute scene! Here Samantha combined Birthday Before ‘n Afters and Party Animal! Just Stitching Double Rectangles add sweet and subtle detail to this fun design!

Jessica gave her Shadow Box Card scene lots of frosty detail! The Mice on Ice cuties are enjoying skating fun in a snowy scene created with Snow Cool, Forest Border and Chunky Glitter!

Joyce created her awesome Spooky Village scene using a Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape! That awesome full moon sky adds to the cool Halloween vibe!

Karin‘s Shadow Box Card is hanging on to the last bit of summer with a fun Smooth Sailing scene! She added the palm trees and grass from Tropical Backdrop to finish this beachy summer design!

Samantha used the Magic Picture Changer to create a sweet Manatee-rific scene! Her beautifully ink-blended card is a wonderful way to congratulate a newly engaged couple!

Jenn created a light-hearted holiday scene combining two new sets, Yeti or Not and Christmas Fishes! How cute is that surfing yeti?

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 59 tomorrow!
