Christy’s Letters with Lots of Heart Inspiration

We invite you to share your creativity by linking up your crafty projects at the Lots of Heart challenge post! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. The Lots of Heart challenge will run for 3 weeks and be open until Sunday, February 6th at 11:59PM ET.

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Lots of Heart Challenge!

For this one, I started by stamping out the mice and envelopes from You Autumn Know and Love Letters in Jet Black Ink. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

Then I wanted to create a background that resembled an air mail envelope. I started with a Blue Jay card base. Then I die cut the Peppermint Stripes Backdrop out of Specked Eggshell and Chili Pepper cardstocks. I used glue to attach the Speckled Eggshell frame to the Blue Jay card base and then filled in the stripes with Chili Pepper.

For the focal panel, I wanted something that resembled a postage stamp, so I die cut more Speckled Eggshell cardstock with the Zig Zag Rectangle Stackables. I stamped a sentiment at the top right in Deep Sea ink and adhered my images with liquid glue. I popped that up on the card with foam tape. As a finishing touch, I stamped a few tiny hearts in Bubblegum ink and added a bit of Star Dust Stickles to the heart seals and stamp on the envelopes.

If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can check out the video tutorial as part of my Valentine Card Series on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Inspiration Board Challenge! My first card was inspired by the photo in the lower right corner. This time I wanted to go with the black, silver, and gold tones in some of the other photos.

I started by stamping out my Scent with Love skunks and Joy to All banners with Jet Black Ink. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

Then I created a focal panel with some Let it Shine Snowflakes patterned paper and a little bit of Narwhal for the floor. I added my images and a little “disco ball” cut from silver sparkle cardstock from the Holiday pack.

I scored and folded a panel of Black Licorice Cardstock into a standard A2 size card, then adhered some Metallic Silver cardstock which I die cut with the Peppermint Stripes Backdrop. I filled in the small stripes with gold sparkle cardstock.

Then I popped up my focal panel with foam tape, and gold heat embossed a sentiment from Merry Messages onto more Black Licorice cardstock and trimmed it down with an Everyday Sentiment Banner. I finished off the card with some gold sequins and filled in their centers with Stardust Stickles.

Jessica created a “celebration in a card”! She used Stitched Fireworks with a splash of color which looks amazing on the black background! For the greeting she combined Oliver’s Stitched ABCs with a Happy Happy Happy coordinating die. The glittery gold cardstock makes this design so special!

Christy was inspired by the colorful ornaments to create a sweet and joyful woodland holiday scene! Those cute squirrels are found in Cheery Christmas along with the ornaments. She combined branches from A Bug Deal with pine boughs and snow from Frosty Fairy Friends! The beautiful sentiment is from Joy to the Woods!

Joyce is welcoming the new year with a super “hoppy” card! She started by stenciling the confetti in the background, then she added those adorable frogs from Toadally Awesome and Don’t Worry, Be Hoppy! For the greeting she combined Oliver’s Stitched ABCs with Happy Happy Happy Add-On!

Samantha made the most gorgeous set of cards featuring alcohol inked backgrounds! She added Snowflake Background Stenciled with White Stencil Paste over those beautiful pops of color!

As a finishing touch, Samantha embossed the sentiment from Snowy Backdrops onto a vellum Fancy Wavy Banner!

It’s a party on Samantha‘s awesome card! A Penguin Party that is! She used the happy colors from the inspiration photo to add lots of cheer to her Happy New Year card! I love how she layered black cardstock with the sparkle cardstock using Peppermint Stripe Backdrop!

Caly captured the pretty bokeh lights in the inspiration board using the Let’s Bokeh set with Yeti ink! The beautifully inked background shines behind the bubbly bokeh pattern! She gold embossed the sentiment on black cardstock to create a dramatic and festive greeting!

Franci‘s Cheery Deer card is so sweet! It sends Happy New Year wishes with Merry Messages in a clean and simple design!

Karin‘s gorgeous design is sure to start the new year off right! The gold splashes on the black background recreate the sparklers in the inspiration board! The sentiment is gold embossed on black; it’s from Magic Holiday Messages! The flowers and vines are combined from Happy Hibiscus and Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On.

Jenn finishes out this festive collection with her joyful design! She combined critters from Beary Happy Holidays, Yeti or Not and Penguin Party to send happy wishes! She paired a greeting from Winter Big Scripty Words and Winter Scripty Sentiments! All of those awesome stars in the background are found in Outside In Stitched Stars and Puffy Star Stackables along with Hearts and Stars Skinny Tag!
