Floral Congrats Card

Hi there! I wanted to pop in and share a colorful, floral congrats card with you today!

This card features Lawn Fawn's Fab Flowers, Big Scripty Words, and Dotted Circle Stackable. I also used a ton of different LF inks: Wild Rose, Ballet Slippers, Celery Stick, Freshly Cut Grass, Sunflower, Carrot, Fresh Lavender, Grape Soda, and Jet Black Ink. I started by stamping and die cutting the different flowers and leaves, as well as the sentiment. Then, I cut a piece of white cardstock smaller than the card base and die cut a circle in the middle. I die cut another circle and made it into a frame. Then I used foam tape to attached the white cardstock panel and the sentiment, so there's lots of dimension around the sentiment. This turned out so pretty and I can't wait to make more with different sentiments!

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

CardMaps Sketch

Hi everyone! Can you believe that it's already August?! Where has the summer gone? We're trying to fit in a few more family activities before the school year starts again! Do you have anything fun planned for the rest of the summer?

This month, the Lawn Fawn team partnered with PageMaps to share some card sketch inspiration! You can find a full list of cards under the CardMaps tab. I used the sketch shown above to create this card:

For the background, I inked a piece of white cardstock with Mermaid, Fish Tank, Walnut, and Doe ink. Then, I used the Stitched Windy Backdrop to make the background look like waves, and also the Stitched Outside In Circle Stackables to frame the sentiment. The images are from Mermaid For You and are all colored with Copic Markers. I added some bubbles stamped in Fish Tank ink, and a few blue embellishments that I had in my craft stash.

Thanks for stopping by! And if you're ever stumped on what to create, check out the different sketches available on the PageMaps page! :)

Marvy Uchida and Lawn Fawn

Hi there! I hope that you have a great weekend! We had a relaxing weekend at home and enjoyed playing in the sprinkler since it was so hot!!

This week, the Lawn Fawn design team is collaborating with Marvy Uchida to bring you some awesome inspiration!

For this card, I used the Watercolor Twist Crayons and Blender Pen to color the background, critters, and leaves. The images are from the Jump For Joy set, and I also used the Simple Stitched Hillside dies for the background.

For the sentiment, I used the Scripty Friends die to adhere three layers of white cardstock together and then coat it with gold glitter with the Deco Just Glitter markers. It's so neat that the glitter markers work on paper and fabric! 

The sentiment is from Bannertastic, So Thankful, and Rooting For You. I also used the Outside In Rectangle Stackable dies to help frame the scene.

There're more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog this week. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you have a great week! :)

Hi everyone! I hope that your summer is going well so far! I am so excited because today is the start of the Lawn Fawn Sneak Week! There are so many cute products that will be released in late August!

I have two cards to share with you this week. The first card features the new Costume Party. The costumes are all so cute! For this card, I also used the Stitched Tree Border, Stitched Cloud Backdrop, Stitched Hillside Border, and Sun and Moon die.

I also used Sugarplum, Noble Fir, Sunflower, and Stormcloud cardstock.

This next set might be my favorite from the new release (well, one of my favorites). This is called Forest Feast and it's adorable! I also used the Scalloped Rectangle die, Simple Grassy Hillside, Ballet Slippers and Wild Rose inks.

Here's a close up. Ah, it's so cute!

Tombow Blog Hop

Good morning! I am excited to be participating in the Towbow Blog Hop this morning! Tombow has some really neat products that are perfect for crafting including their markers, pencils, and adhesive products. 

For my card today, I used the Tombow MONO Multi XL Liquid Glue to adhere three layers to the "sweet" die cut and to adhere the accessories on the husband and wife pineapples.

I also used Lawn Fawn's Aloha stamp and die, Bicycle Built For You for the wedding accessories, Scripty Sweet, Scalloped Rectangle Stackables, and Wild Rose and Ballet Slipper inks for the hearts. The pineapples and accessories are colored with Copic Markers. I really like how cute this card turned out! Here is a close up on the pineapples:

Here is the full blog hop list. The next stop is Jennie! :)

Thank so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments! Enjoy the blog hop and I hope you have a great day! :)

Ellen Hutson Love Ya Bunches Set

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share this card with you today! Lawn Fawn and Ellen Hutson collaborated to bring you this adorable Love Ya Bunches stamp and die set!!

Ah, the monkeys are so cute!! And they included some really cute and punny sentiments, too! This set is part of the United We Flourish program from Ellen Hutson, and here is a little bit of information about the program:

Last November we began celebrating our 10th anniversary with our United We Flourish theme. We would not be here without the amazing companies we work with, the designers who create stunning projects showcasing the amazing products being created AND you our fabulous customers! YOU are such a vital part of our creative community - you inspire & encourage us! Your response to United We Flourish was overwhelming and heart-warming. We heard repeatedly from you that you appreciate how our little company works together with the other manufacturers we carry to bring you their products and education showing how to use those products. To thank you for your constant support and encouragement, we have something incredibly special we began working on shortly after that anniversary.
We have partnered with some of our friends to offer exclusive limited edition stamp & die sets!!! These sets will be available for a limited time (most likely 3-6 months) after each release, depending on how quickly you snap them up. The theme of these stamp sets are uplifting and fun.
We are thrilled to present the first one to you... Love Ya Bunches by Lawn Fawn exclusively for Ellen Hutson LLC. United We Flourish, because we’re better together!

 Here is the card that I created with this set:

I cut a piece of white cardstock a little bit smaller than my card base, and used the Outside In Stitched Circle Stackable to cut out the window. I used the Freshly Cut Grass on the card base where the window was going to be. The white panel is attached with foam tape, and the images are all colored with Copic markers and attached with foam tape or glue. I used a Bannertastic banner to highlight part of the sentiment, and I stamped the other part directly onto the white panel. I finished by adding two die cut hearts colored with Copic markers and covered in clear stickles.

 There's more inspiration from the design team on the Lawn Fawn blog, so check it out! And make sure you get this set quickly because it's only available for a limited time!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Celebrate Border and Tiny Tag Sayings: Birthday

Hi everyone! I hope that your week is going well. We're finally getting sunnier weather here, yay!

Today is the last day of the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week. I am sharing a card that features the Celebrate Border die and the Tiny Tag Sayings: Birthday stamp set.

I used the Aloha set to make a bunch of pineapples ready to party! The hats are from the Hang In There set and the presents are from the Baaah Humbug set. To get the sentiment to fit below the celebrate die, I had to cut my stamp apart (gasp!), but you could also cover part of the sentiment with washi tape or a post-it note to stamp it this way.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have enjoyed the different cards this week! Don't forget to enter the giveaways on the Lawn Fawn blog!

Thanks! Have a great day! Happy 1st Day of Summer! :)
