Christy’s Toucan Do It Inspiration!

Our Little Things challenge will be open until Sunday July 4th at 11:59PM ET. Let’s get that Challenge 103 gallery filled with cute little things! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Little Things Challenge. I could not resist playing with the brand new Toucan Do It stamp set, so I focused on the smaller toucans and other images. I colored them all with Copic markers in a rainbow palette and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

I love using patterned paper for quick and easy backgrounds, and the new Watercolor Wishes Rainbow 6×6 pad is perfect for that! I chose an ombré blue for my focal panel and die cut that with the Small Stitched Circle Stackables. Then I chose a rainbow polka dot print to match my coloring and cut that down with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I adhered the polka dot print to my Mermaid card base and popped the blue ombré circle up with foam tape.

I adhered my images and finished the card with an Everyday Sentiment Banner stamped in Blue Jay ink, and a tiny touch of Star Dust Stickles. I also did some stamping on the inside, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty!

I definitely think that smaller images deserve to be the stars of the show on occasion, which is what makes this challenge so fun! You still have time to enter. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Thank you so much, Christy! This is amazing inspiration!


Have a great weekend! Happy crafting!
