A Magical Christmas Card with Samantha

Samantha M shares a beautiful Christmas card with magical Happy Holiday Critters to inspire you today!

Samantha’s sleigh pulled tiny unicorns is so clever! These magical critters are right at home above the white and vellum Puffy Cloud Borders! Samantha combined unicorns from Unicorn Picnic, Winter Unicorn and A Little Sparkle to pull the sleigh from Ho-Ho-Holidays.

How cute is that unicorn riding in the sleigh?

To add even more magical detail, Samantha used the Snowflake Trio Stencil to add pretty snowflakes with white embossing paste.

Thanks so much for sharing this brilliant inspiration with us, Samantha!

The Happy Holiday Critters challenge runs for 3 weeks and will be open until Sunday December 6! We can’t wait to see what you will create!

We are so happy to welcome a new Guest Designer for this challenge! Say hello to Valerie Ward! She created an amazing project for this challenge, I know it will inspire you!

Valerie created an awesome tall slimline card, complete with 2 Reveal Wheels! For this card, the little caroling peas are the critters; so cute! She combined images from Peas on Earth, Tiny Christmas, Over the Mountain Borders, Winter Village and many more! Whoever receives this card will certainly have Hap-Pea Holidays!

Valerie used the Reveal Wheel Semicircle Add-On and the Circle Add-On. She added the Mini String of Lights to divide the top section and a Fancy Wavy Banner to divide the the scenes at the bottom. The smallest Puffy Cloud Border made just the right size clouds for Tiny Christmas Santa to fly above!

Thanks so much for creating this amazing inspiration, Valerie!

Now let’s see how our wonderful Design Team was inspired by the challenge theme!

Christy’s Crazy Antics Picnic!

It’s almost time to celebrate our new Fall & Winter Release! We can’t wait to show you all the fun new products we have coming out soon! Join us at the Lawn Fawn blog starting on September 2!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Make the Sentiment the Star Challenge. I was itching to revisit the Crazy Antics stamp set again, but this time featuring those cute little ants! I also pulled in images from Unicorn Picnic and the dirt pile “ant hill” from A Bug Deal. I stamped all my images in Jet Black ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For my focal panel, I took the Meadow Backdrop: Portrait and die cut it out of some Bristol Smooth Surface cardstock. Using the Cloudy Stencil, I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide into the sky. Then I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass. I also added some splatter effect for a little extra detail.

I adhered that to a Mermaid card base and spelled out the word ANTICS with Finley’s ABCs in both Raspberry and Chili Pepper cardstock and glued them together slightly off-set so that the Chili Pepper became the drop shadow. I adhered that across the sky, and white heat-embossed the rest of the sentiment onto a strip of Black Licorice cardstock. Then I filled in the rest of my scene with those adorable food-heisting picnic interlopers!

If you’d like to see how this card came together, I have a video tutorial for you on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty yourself and make the sentiment the star! We can’t wait to see what you create! The Make the Sentiment the Star challenge will be open until Sunday, September 6 at 11:59PM ET.

Wishing you all a happy, craft-filled weekend!
