Jenn Takes the Ugly and Bright Critters to the Beach!

It’s time to use all those Lawn Fawn critters in festive holiday designs! Link up your entry photos HERE! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, stencils and papers and follow the challenge theme. This challenge will be open until Sunday, December 4 at 11:59PM ET.

Jenn joins us today with more charming Holiday Critters inspiration!

Jenn’s adorable scene takes the Ugly and Bright critters to the beach for a cozy holiday! She began by stenciling the snowflakes in the background with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink. Then she stamped all the images (see supply list below for the sets she used) with Jet Black Ink before coloring them with Copic markers.

All the glittery accents were adding using Quickie Glue and Prisma and Chunky Glitter.

She inked the Henry’s ABCs with Kitsch Flamingo and Lobster Ink to create a fun ombré, then she covered the lower part of each letter with Chunky Glitter.

As always, Jenn shares a Copic marker chart so you can recreate her cheery coloring!

Christy’s Cool Birthday at the Beach!

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! We are looking forward to seeing your Summertime Fun creativity! The Challenge 127 – Summertime Fun is a 2-week challenge and will be open until Sunday, July 3 at 11:59PM ET.

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Summertime Fun Challenge! I started this one by stamping out the images from Pool Party and On the Beach in Jet Black Ink. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I used three panels of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock blended with Distress Oxide Ink. For the sky, I blended some Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers. For the water, I trimmed off the top with the Stitched Wave Borders and used the same two shades, plus some Mermaid Lagoon, then used the Stitched Ripple Backdrop to give it some texture. For the sand, I trimmed off the top with the Stitched Simple Wavy Borders and blended on Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs. Then I splattered both the sand and see with Liquid Stardust.

For my sentiment, I colored some white cardstock with Copics in shades of orange and die cut the C and L using Finley’s ABCs. I added the pool floaties for the Os to spell out the word COOL. The rest of the sentiment I white heat embossed onto Black Licorice Cardstock and cut down into strips. I glued everything down with liquid glue and finished with a bit of Stardust Stickles.

If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can check out the video tutorial on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty. If you haven’t yet entered our Summertime Fun Challenge, there is still another week to play! We can’t wait to see what projects you’ll come up with!


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to join the Summertime Fun challenge!
