Christy’s Dandy Little Scene

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Spectacular Skies Challenge! Today I wanted to create a little sunrise scene, and I thought the sweet mice from Dandy Day would be the perfect accompaniment. I colored them all with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For my background I used the Cloudy Stencil with some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink, then splattered on a little Liquid Stardust to give it a touch of shimmer. I trimmed it down with the Stitched Party Banner die and cut down the top with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables to get it to the size I wanted.

I also cut down a piece of Noble Fir cardstock with the Stitched Party Banner and used the Grassy Border across the top. I stamped my sentiment across the bottom with Black Licorice Ink and added some dandelion fluff to the background while I was at it, and adhered the two pieces together with liquid glue. I added my images to complete the scene.

On my card base, I glued down a piece of yellow dandelion patterned paper from the Dandy Day 6×6 pad, and also a pretty plaid from the Perfectly Plaid Spring 6×6 pad, both trimmed down with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I added double-sided foam tape to the back of the focal panel and popped that up for a little dimension. As a finishing touch, I dabbed a little Stardust Stickles on the heads of the dandelion seeds.

Christy’s Cute New Baby Card

Hey everyone, it’s Christy here with a sweet baby shower card for our What’s the Weather Challenge. One of my co-workers is about to become a first-time grandma, and she loves elephants for baby girls, so I combined a couple of sets to create her a congratulations card with that theme.

I started by stamping out the mama elephant from Wild for You, the baby elephant from Elphie Selfie, and the umbrella and rattle from Hello Baby. I colored them in Copic markers using a soft color palette of warm gray, pink, and mint. Then I trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I die cut a Stitched Circle Stackable and sponged on some distress ink using a stencil to create some pale gray clouds and a little patch of grass. I added a sentiment and a few raindrops from Hello Baby as well. I layered this onto a Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackable to give it that delicate eyelet-looking edge.

I layered some patterned papers over my card base, die cutting the largest with a Stitched Rectangle Stackable, and used the Stitched Party Banner to selectively die cut a flag end on my banner. I popped the focal panel up with foam tape for a little dimension and added some white gel pen polka dots to the rattle and umbrella as a finishing touch.

If you’d like to see how this card came together, check out the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. There’s still plenty of time to enter our What’s the Weather Challenge! I can’t wait to see what you create!

Our What’s the Weather challenge will be open until Sunday, March 3 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!
Have an awesome weekend, Fawnatics friends!

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.
