LF Inspiration Week: Peekaboo Backdrop

Good morning everyone! I'm back again to share an Easter card that features the Peekaboo Backdrop dies!

 This die makes it so fun and easy to create different scenes on your cards! And the set includes a few interactive dies to create a lift-a-flap or door that are so much fun to add to cards!

For this card, I used the Some Bunny stamp and die set to create a cute Easter scene. The bunnies, flowers, and eggs are all colored with Copic markers. To create the scenes, I ink blended Mermaid ink for the sky, and I used Cilantro ink for the grass cut from the Simple Grassy Hillsides die. And the Easter eggs that the bunnies are looking for are revealed when you lift the flaps - so fun!

I also wanted to share this card that I created a while ago the features the Peekaboo Backdrop die and Hay There stamp set. You can find the details on how to create this card by clicking here. There is also a video on the Lawn Fawn YouTube channel on how to recreate this card!

Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Beam Me Up

Hi everyone! It's time again for another Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! 

The design team is sharing projects that feature the Beam Me Up stamp set. 

I started by creating an ink blended background with Broken China and Faded Jean distress oxides and spritzing it with water. Then, I took a piece of white cardstock and die cut stars from the Outside In Stitched Star Stackables to create windows for the aliens to peek through. The aliens and presents are all colored with Copic markers and attached with foam tape.

The smaller stars are die cut from cardstock blended with Broken China distress ink with the little stars included in the Stitched Star Frames. And the sentiment is white heat embossed and die cut with the Speech Bubbles die.

Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration! Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll be back again tomorrow with more cards to share! :)

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

 Hi everyone! I hope your having a good weekend so far! I have a few cards that I wanted to share with you that I made recently! :)

These are my favorite cards to make and give at baby showers or to a new mom. I'm not sure where I saw that phrase, but it's a perfect reminder that our children are a gift from God!

These cards feature Lawn Fawn's Riley's ABCs stamps, and Quinn's ABCs stamps and dies. I also used the moon from Love You S'more set and the stars from the Upon A Star stamp set. The images are all colored with Copic markers, and the letters have clear stickles added on top for some extra sparkle.

Here's a boy verse of the same card. I actually made this design a few years ago (here's the card if you're interested), but I decided to update the look a little bit with a stitched card stock panel on the front and by using Copics instead of colored pencils. I really like the updated look!

I also wanted to let you all know about a sale that Technique Tuesday is having today and tomorrow to celebrate their birthday! Use the coupon code HB2U and receive 20% off of your order - yay! You can check out their products by clicking here!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend! :)

Lawn Fawn Glow-In-The-Dark Card

Hi everyone! I have a fun card to share with you today that features some new products from Lawn Fawn!

This card uses the new Little Fireflies mini stamp set. Those fireflies are so cute, and they go perfectly with the Glow-In-The-Dark Embossing Powder! It's so cool!

To create this card, I stamped five fireflies and colored them with Copic markers - BV00, B60 for the bodies, BG10 for the wings, and Y06 and Y00 for the rear ends. :) Then, I created the scene by ink blending Wilted Violet and Faked Jeans distress oxide inks for the background. I also used Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron for the grass, which is cut from the Simple Grassy Hillsides die.

I then used the White Embossing Powder to emboss the sentiment on the background, and also to emboss the sentiment from the Lights Out set on black cardstock cut from the Everday Sentiment Banners. To create the "glows" sentiment, I removed the backing from a double-sided foam adhesive sheet and added the Glow-In-The-Dark Embossing Powder. After it was embossed with my heat gun, I die cut the letters from Finley's ABCs and attached the letters to the background. I also added some glue to the fireflies rear end and added some embossing powder to them, too. Here is what the card looks like in the dark!

The glow-in-the-dark powder is so much fun and it is such a unique effect to add to a card! Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Hay There

Hi everyone! I hope that you're having a good week so far! Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the new Hay There stamp set!

This might be my favorite set from the new release! The critters are just so cute in this set!

I colored all of the animals and the barn with Copic markers. I used the Stitched Hillside Borders die to cut three different hillsides and I ink blended them with Lemonade, Freshly Cut Grass, and the new Cilantro inks. To make the one hillside look like a hay field, I drew yellow lines on it with a Copic marker after it was ink blended with yellow ink. The sky is ink blended with Mermaid ink and the sentiment is stamped in black Memento ink. I also used the Little Picket Fence Border die and added it behind the barn. The card is finished with the new Ocean Sparkle Lawn Trimmings.

Thanks so much for stopping by! And thank you for all of your sweet comments this week! I hope you have enjoyed all of the inspiration this week, and I can't wait to see what everyone makes with the new products! Everything is available tomorrow at Lawn Fawn!

LF Inspiration Week: Outside In Easter Egg Stackables, Easter Egg Frames

Hi there! The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Outside In Easter Egg Stackables and the Easter Egg Frames!

For my card, I used the Outside In Easter Egg Stackables to make an egg shaped card. I ink blended the sky with Mermaid ink. I also used the Stitched Garden Border for the ground and ink blended it with Doe ink.

I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut the bunnies and carrots from the Some Bunny stamp set. Those little bunnies are the cutest! I stamped the sentiment, added a white frame from the Easter Egg Frame, and I attached a twine bow at the top with a glue dot.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back again tomorrow with a few more cards to share with you! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Stitched Basket, Perfectly Plaid Spring

Hi everyone! Today, the Lawn Fawn design team is sharing projects that feature the new Stitched Basket die and Perfectly Plaid Spring patterned paper!

I made a banner with the little baskets to create a countdown to Easter!

The bunnies are from the Some Bunny and Hoppy Easter sets, and the numbers are die cut from the Quinn's 123s dies and black cardstock. 

Each basket has a roll of paper with a Bible verse to read each day leading up to Easter! It's going to be a fun way to help my kiddos learn more about the details leading up to the Resurrection and to help them keep their focus on Christ during the Easter season.

In case you're interested, here are the verses in each basket:
Palm Sunday - The Triumphal Entry - Mark 11:1-11
Monday - Jesus Anointed at Bethany - Mark 14:3-9
Tuesday - Jesus Washes His Disciples' Feet - John 13:1-5
Wednesday - The Lord's Supper - Mark 14:16-25
Thursday - Gethsemane - Mark 14:32-46
Good Friday - The Crucifixion - Mark 15:21-39
Saturday - The Burial - Mark 15:42-47

Thanks so much for stopping by! There's more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog, so check it out! :)
