Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Hay There


Hello there!  Welcome to day 7 of Lawn Fawn Release Week!  All of the new products that I will be showcasing throughout the week will be available for purchase on February 22nd!

Today, my card uses the adorable sheep from the Hay There stamp set!  These cute little farm animals are great for so many occasions, and I am thrilled to see another Lawn Fawn sheep as I love the Baaah Humbug stamp set.  To create my card, I inked a background using Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks and then diecut it with the largest die from the Outside In Stitched Rectangles dies.  I had counting sheep on my mind for this card, but a cow jumping over the moon would be so cute as well.  To make this an interactive card, I used one of the dies from the new Slide On Over Semi Circles dies to create a slider.  I diecut the shape from the watercolor background, and save the diecut piece.  I stamped and colored by sheep, and assembled my slider, but before gluing everything down with foam tape, I glued the negative of the semi circle in place with the new Glue Tube.  I could've left it white, and the card base would have shown through.  To fill the night sky, I diecut clouds using the Simple Puffy Cloud Frames dies (the new Glue Tube has a fine tip, and is perfect for adhering narrow diecuts!) and Simple Puffy Clouds dies, the moon from the Sun and Moon die set, and a trio of smiling stars from the Critters Ever After stamp set.  I stamped a sentiment from Critters Ever After onto a Cloudy Hillside Pop-Up Add on die and added that to the bottom of the panel with foam tape, and then mounted the whole thing on a white card base.  I added a scattering of iridescent sequins, and some white gel pen accents to finish off my card.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Easter Party


Hello there!  Welcome to day 6 of Lawn Fawn Release Week!  All of the new products that I will be showcasing throughout the week will be available for purchase on February 22nd!

Today, I have a card to share with you using the cute new set, Easter Party!  Easter Party is full of images of little people dressed in spring and Easter themed outfits.  My card features the little girl dressed as a daisy.  I watercolored a background using Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron distress inks, then added a strip of Perfectly Plaid Spring paper to the bottom before diecutting the panel with a Stitched Rectangle dies.  I stamped the little daisy girl three times, and colored her in bright pastel shades with my Copic markers.  I also colored several flowers and leaves, also found in the set and scattered them randomly around the card.  I stamped a sentiment from the set onto a Bannertastic banner, and added a scattering of sequins and white gel pen accents before popping the panel up on a white card base with foam tape.

Fusion Card Challenge {Reverse Confetti}





Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share with you using Reverse Confetti products!  I am playing along with the current Fusion Card Challenge - Spring Wreath.  I chose to use the photo in the challenge as inspiration for my card today.


For my card, I started off with an A2 card base cut from Midnight cardstock.  Then, using the second largest die from the Pierced Round Top Layers Confetti Cuts die set, I diecut an arched panel.  I used my score board to score lines in it to mimic the door in the challenge photo.  I popped the arched layer up on the card base with foam tape.  I stamped and colored the wreath and a few flowers from the Fall For You stamp set, and diecut them with the coordinating Fall For You Confetti Cuts dies.  For my sentiment, I stamped and colored the banner from the Banner in Bloom stamp set, added a sentiment from the set onto the banner, and diecut it with the coordinating Banner in Bloom Confetti Cuts dies. I adhered that across the center of the wreath and popped everything up with foam tape.

For Someone Special

I love photo challenges because they really stretch me outside of my box.  I would never have thought to color this wreath in shades of brown until I saw the challenge photo.

That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Hello there!  Today, I have a fun Easter project to share with you!  Lawn Fawn is releasing an adorable Stitched Basket, perfect for Easter and other occasions too!  They would make adorable place settings at your holiday tables!

To create my basket, I used some Perfectly Plaid Spring patterned paper and Ballet Slippers cardstock.  To decorate my basket, I  stamped and colored images from the Eggstra Special stamp set, and diecut them with the coordinating Eggstra Special dies.  The tiny carrot is from the new Some Bunny stamp set.  I was so surprised to see that this basket, once assembled, is a great size!  It fits three Cadbury eggs perfectly!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Some Bunny


Hello there!  Welcome to day 4 of Lawn Fawn Release Week!  All of the new products that I will be showcasing throughout the week will be available for purchase on February 22nd!

Today, I have a card to share with you using the adorable new Some Bunny stamp set and a few other new goodies too!  I started off by watercoloring my background using pastel shades of Distress inks on Distress watercolor paper.  When it was dry, I diecut the watercolor with the largest die in the Outside In Stitched Rectangles dies.  Then, I used the Stitched Egg Stackables to diecut an egg from Gotta Have Gingham patterned paper, and framed it with a Stitched Egg Frame cut from Sticky Note cardstock.  I stamped and colored images from Some Bunny and diecut them using the coordinating Some Bunny dies.  I stamped a sentiment on a banner from the Bannertastic stamp set, and centered that across the egg.  Everything is popped up with foam tape, and the panel is popped up on an A2 sized card base.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Scalloped Treat Box: Spring Add-on


Hello there!  Welcome to day 3 of Lawn Fawn Release Week!  All of the new products that I will be showcasing throughout the week will be available for purchase on February 22nd!

Today, we are showing off the Scalloped Treat Box: Spring Add-On!  I created my Scalloped Treat Box out of some of the new Gotta Have Gingham papers.  I diecut the roof and window and door frames from Narwhal cardstock.  The front door and cute little flowers in the window box are cut from Chili Pepper cardstock.  All of the shrubs are Cilantro cardstock, and how cute is that little picket fence!?  

Spring Treat Box 1

Each side of the box has windows and cute flower filled flower boxes!  The possibilities are endless with this add on set, and it works perfectly with the previously released Scalloped Treat Box Add-On dies!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Pivot Pop-Up




Hello there!  Welcome to day 2 of Lawn Fawn Release Week!  All of the new products that I will be showcasing throughout the week will be available for purchase on February 22nd!

Today, the team is sharing projects made with the newest Lawn Fawn interactive dies, the Pivot Pop-Up!  Upon hearing the name of this die, the PIVOT! "Friends" episode immediately came to mind!  LOL!

This card was a labor of love.  It was one of those cards that I started without a real direction, and I just let it evolve and enjoyed the process.  It ending up being a card for my husband for Valentine's Day, and he loved it!  Here is the outside of my card...  I used the Outside In Stitched Rectangles dies to cut stitched rectangle from white cardstock.  For the focal point, I created an ink blended background with Distress Oxide inks, and diecut it with the smallest of the new Stitched Stars Stackables.  Then I used the new Stitched Star Frames to add a frame around the patterned star.  I stamped and colored one of the adorable aliens from the new Beam Me Up stamp set, and added a planet from the Out of This World stamp set.  A sentiment from Beam Me Up was stamped under the star, which I popped up with foam tape, and to finish off the front, I added a scattering of stars from the Lucky Stars stamp set, stamped in Sunflower ink.

Pivot Popup Outside

Upon opening the card, you will find an entire galaxy!  I inked blended a background for the inside too, using Distress Oxides.  I used the Starry Skies dies to add some shooting stars and star clusters randomly on the background.  Then I backed the panel with a white card base to make the stars stand out.  I stamped and colored images from Beam Me Up, Out of this World and Critters Ever After and glued them all down with the new Glue Tube from Lawn Fawn.  This glue is amazing, and the fine tip is perfect for tiny pieces!  I stamped a sentiment from Out of This World on the new Cloudy Pop-Up Add On dies.  The pivot mechanism was easy to assemble, but it is important to use good STURDY adhesive to adhere it together.  Constant opening and closing could loosen things over time, so you want to make sure it's not going anywhere.  I used glossy accents to glue down my Pivot Pop-Up and it worked beautifully.

That's all for me today!  Make sure you stop by the Lawn Fawn blog to see what is happening over there... lots more projects to share with you!  I hope you will come back tomorrow as I have another card for you!!
