Christy’s Wonderful Winter New Year Card!

Hey friends, it’s Christy! I hope you all had the very merriest of Christmases! Now that we’re just days away from switching out our calendars, I wanted to create a card that captured that spirit. A new dawn of a new day of a new year.

I stamped out my images from Sealed with a Kiss, colored them with some cool gray Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I created a background by sponging Distress Inks onto a Small Stitched Circle Stackables to look like the sky at sunrise.

I die-cut a snowdrift with Stitched Hillside Borders and stamped my Merry Messages sentiment on it using Manatee ink. Then I glued that down to the bottom of my sunrise scene and added my seals. I popped that up over some Gotta Have Gingham patterned paper trimmed down with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and a Really Rainbow Christmas flag with the end selectively die-cut with one of the Stitched Party Banners.

As a finishing touch, I added a few stars with a white gel pen to signify the night turning into day. If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can check it out on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

I wish you all a peaceful end to 2018 and hope that the new year brings you joy and happiness and lots of crafty mojo! Speaking of which, there’s still time to enter our Wonderful Winter Challenge, it will be open until Sunday, January 6th at 11:59PM ET ! We can’t wait to see what you create.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year and lots of crafty adventures in 2019 from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!

Franci’s Snowglobe Ornament Cards

Hello there! Franci here with you today with a couple of fun holiday projects inspired by the current challenge Winter Holidays challenge!

It’s been a magical year at Lawn Fawnatics for me and I can’t wait for all the new adventures and happiness 2019 will bring! So for today I thought it would have been fun going back to 2017 when I first made a project for Lawn Fawnatics as a guest! Did you remember my mini snowglobe cards?! I love them so much! I was inspired by them to create these new cards…

I called them cards/ornaments because the little snowglobes actually come off the cards pretty easily so you can add them to the Christmas tree as little paper decors!

To make these I used a lots of Lawn Fawn products! First, I love the Really Rainbow Christmas paper! I die cut my snowglobe out of these beautiful holiday-patterned papers and die cut all the other elements from the Ready, Set, Snow Shaker Add-On set from white cardstock. I colored the snowy sky with some Distress Ink blue shades and then I stamped, colored and die cut all the critters. I also used some Lawn fawn inks for the little mistletoe and the pretty bows with Jalapeno and Guava colors. I glued everything together and added some details with white gel pen.

These cute hedgehogs from the Hedgehugs set are so cute and the seals from Sealed with a Kiss are the perfect Christmas couple!! I kept my card bases pretty simple but I decorated them with some Red Sparkle twine and 2 strips of another patterned paper that matches well my colors, always from Really Rainbow Christmas.

Hope you like my festive projects and thank you so much for stopping by today!
Have a lovely day,
Franci

The Winter Holiday challenge will be open until 11:59Pm ET on Sunday, December 16th. We hope you will join us!

We are so happy to have an amazing Guest Designer join us for this challenge! Please welcome Mayra Duran-Hernandez of Mayra’s Designs! We have been so inspired by her beautiful coloring and wonderfully creative card designs so we are so excited to share her gorgeous designs with you!

She combined images and sentiments from lots of sets including Love You a Latte, Pumpkin Spice, Holiday Helpers, Caramel Apple and Frosty Fairy Friends!

I love that Mayra created a second card with the same beautiful design but this time with gorgeous rich red in the mix!

Now let’s see how our talented Design Team was inspired by this happy color palette!

This fun Reveal Wheel card by Samantha M features Holiday Helpers wrapping gifts for everyone on the “nice list”! The Reveal Wheel Square Add-On is the perfect size for this cute scene!

Karin used the color inspiration to create a cheery Winter Village scene for our adorable Oh What Fun sleigh and Santa bear! She created a gorgeous snowy night sky with ink blending and some white paint splatters!

Joyce was inspired to create a set of colorful pastel Say What? Gift Tags! She stamped the tags with Gingham Backdrops in ink colors of Wild Rose, Moonstone, Celery Stick, Sunflower and Mermaid! She colored the Say What? Christmas Critters in colors to coordinate!

Franci got really creative and made a fun Snow Cool scene on a shaped card! She used Outside In Stitched Christmas Tree Stackables and Stitched Christmas Tree Frames to make this adorable tree-shaped card!

Franci added the cute little Snow Cool igloo on the inside along with a great sentiment from Merry Messages!

Christy‘s card incorporates the Color Inspiration brilliantly with adorable critters in a fabulous collage design! She used Toboggan Together, Beary Happy Holidays, Cheery Christmas, Winter Otter and Sealed with a Kiss!

Samantha‘s card is so happy! She colored the Frosty Fairy Friends images with Copic markers in all the colors of the challenge palette! The Really Rainbow Christmas papers create the perfect backdrop!

Jessica‘s gorgeous card uses the challenge colors sparingly in the windows of the Little Town Border in this lovely snowy landscape! The White Christmas paper from Really Rainbow Christmas looks amazing the glittery silver Stitched Snowflakes!

This wonderful greeting from Winter Big Scripty Words is the perfect sentiment for this beautiful card!
