LF Inspiration Week: Tiny Gift Box Raccoon and Fox Add-On

Good morning everyone! I hope that you had a great weekend! Today, is my daughters 5th birthday! How is she five already!? We'll be celebrating with her today, enjoying some cake and presents, and getting ready for her party next weekend. :)

Lawn Fawn Release Week continues today with a look at the new Tiny Gift Box Raccoon Add-On and Tiny Gift Box Fox Add-On. They look so cute on the Tiny Gift Box!

For the raccoon I used the Narwhal and Storm Cloud cardstock, and for the fox I used Vanilla Malt and Canned Pumpkin. I also used Ballet Slipper for the ears and cheeks, Black Licorice for the eyes and noses, and Raspberry cardstock for the hearts. And did you see the tails on the back of the box? How cute is that?!

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

LF Inspiration Week: I Love You(calyptus)

Hi everyone! The Lawn Fawn Release Week continues today with a look at another new stamp set, I Love You(calyptus)!

How cute is that koala?! I ended up making two cards for today because I couldn't decide which one I like better!

For this first card, I used the Leafy Tree Backdrop die to create a tree along the right side for the koala. I stamped, colored the koala with Copic markers, and die cut it with the coordinating dies. I created the scene for the card by using Mermaid, Cilantro, Paper Bag, and Noble Fir cardstocks for the sky, tree, and grass.

I used the Bannertastic banners and Riley's ABCs to create a custom sentiment. The pun is perfect for the koala, haha! I added a few hearts that are also included in the koala set, and finished by adding a few drops of Nuvo drops in the tree and sky.

For my second card, I decided to mirror stamp the koala so that I could have two koalas facing each other! I created the scene with Lawn Fawn cardstock and also the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders, Simple Grassy Hillsides, and the Birch Tree dies.

I stamped, colored, and die cut a bunch of the little branches included in the set and tucked them behind the trees. I added the koalas with foam tape and glued on the hearts and flower. Then, I added a white heat embossed sentiment with foam tape, and finished the scene by adding a frame cut from the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames die.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed the cards! Have a great weekend! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Let's Toast and Let's Toast Pull Tab Add-On

Hi everyone! The Lawn Fawn Release Week begins today, yay! This week, the design team is featuring the new Valentine's Day products that will be available on Thursday, December 13th. We can't wait to show you all of the new products!

Today, we are sharing projects that feature the new Let's Toast stamp set and Let's Toast Pull Add-On die.

The Let's Toast set features this adorable toaster, a piece of toast, avacado, pop tart, lots of cute smiley faces, and tons of great puns! It also goes great with the Pull Tab Add-On die which makes the toaster interactive! The die is great because it hides the interactive slit behind the toaster and it makes it look like the toast or pop tart magically pops up! And the die is really neat because it can work with other sets as well! I can't wait to use the pull tab die to make critters pop up from behind the grass, or have a sun pop up from behind a cloud. There are so many ways to use that die!

For this card, I also used the birthday hats from Wild For You and the sentiment from the Chit Chat set. The sentiment is stamped in some new ink colors that will also be available next Thursday!

There's more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog, so check it out! And there's a giveaway on the LF blog, too!

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

Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! I'm excited to share a few projects with you today that feature the December Card Kit of the Month from Spellbinders! Here's a look at the items included in this month's kit:

The kit includes so many fun items! I really like how there is a variety of items that you can use including cardstock, patterned paper, a stamp set, die set, stickers, and quite a few different embellishments.

For my first card, I used the stamp set to create a fun and colorful card!

I started by stamping the three jars onto white cardstock. Then, I created a mask for the jar by stamping the jar onto a piece of scrap paper and cutting out the inside of the jar. I lightly taped the mask to the jars and stamped the different stars inside the jars. I used my Copic markers to color the stars and lids. For the jar in the middle, I stamped the sentiment in black ink and the snowflakes in Mermaid ink from Lawn Fawn. I also added a few enamel dots and a twine bow, which are also included in the card kit!

I trimmed a piece of patterned paper and attached it to a card base, and then attached the jars with foam tape. Here's a close up on the jars.

For my next card, I created a clean and simple card with the metal dies, glitter stickers and stamp set!

I started by attaching a piece of patterned paper to a white A2 sized card base. Then, I cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than the card base. I arranged the gold glitter stickers to the middle of the card and also stamped the "holiday" part of the stamp set above the joy letters. I used the metal dies to cut the flower and branches from Raspberry and Noble Fir cardstock from Lawn Fawn. The  branches are attached with glue and the flower is attached with a foam tape. I finished the card by adding a twine bow along the top. The glitter stickers are so pretty!

 This last card features the metal dies that are included in the set! How cute is that polar bear!?

I created a long top fold card from a piece of white cardstock. The background is created by ink blending Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide inks and spritzing it with water. I also cut the snowflakes from Peacock and Mermaid cardstock and attached them with glue to the background. I used another piece of white cardstock to cut a hillside and attached that to the card base.

The trees are cut from Noble Fir, Cilantro, and Paper Bag cardstock, and the sentiment is cut from Black Licorice cardstock. The polar bear is cut from the cardstock that is included in the kit. It's so cute that the die adds details to the polar's fur! Here's another look at the card:

I hope this has given you some inspiration for the cards that you can create with this kit! I can't wait to see what everyone creates with their kit. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great week! :)

Lawn Fawn Black Friday Special

Hi everyone! I hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving this year! There's so much to be thankful for and I hope you were able to take time to thank God for everything he has blessed us with!

I have a card to share with you today that features a Black Friday special mini set from Lawn Fawn! This special set is available at the Lawn Fawn store. Orders over $35 will receive the free stamp set, and orders over $60 will receive the coordinating dies. Plus, shipping is free on all U.S. orders! Yay!

The unicorn and fairies in this set are so cute!! I started by stamping the images onto white cardstock with Jet Black ink and coloring with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images.

The background is created with Distress Oxide inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber for the yellow card, and Abandoned Coral and Worn Lipstick for the pink card. I also used the Cole's ABCs die cut to cut out the letters for the word "sparkles" and inked them with the same Distress Oxide inks. 

I took a piece of white cardstock, cut it with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables die to add detail to the outside, and also used the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circle Stackables in the middle. I used the Puffy Cloud Borders to cut clouds from vellum and the Pixie Dust sparkle cardstock and layered them behind the scalloped circle. Then, I attached the cardstock with foam tape over top of the card base with the inked background.

The first part of the sentiment is white heat embossed onto black cardstock. I glued the "sparkles" letters to the card and attached the rest of the sentiment with foam tape. Then, I attached the unicorn and fairies with foam tape, and I finished the card by adding a few heart and star embellishments from the Coconut Ice Sparkle Shaker selection. I also used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush to add glitter to the unicorn and the "sparkles" letters, but it's hard to see that in the photos.

These cards are so cute and I can't wait to sent them to friends! Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration with this cute set! And don't forget to order this special set, because it's only available until November 26th!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day! :)

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be sharing tags with you for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags from Tracey McNeely! Check out her blog for all of the information and for a chance to win the giveaway!!

I created a set of Christmas tags that features products from Lawn Fawn!

To create the tags, I die cut white cardstock with the Tag, You're It die. I used a variety of Distress Oxide inks to ink blend the tags, including Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick, Mowed Lawn, and Twisted Citron. I spritzed them with a little bit of water, let them dry, and then stamped the black detail around the tag with the Winter Gifts stamp set. The Winter Gifts set is no longer available, but these tags would also look cute with the Birthday Tags stamp set, or you could even draw the lines around the edge with a black marker.

The images are from the Christmas Dreams stamp set. I stamped the images onto white cardstock, colored them with Copic markers, and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I also used my Copic markers to add some extra detail to the images by adding small dots on the cat, dog, and trees! Then, I attached all of the images with foam tape. To finish the card, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Tiny Tag Sayings set with white embossing powder, and tied Lawn Trimmings twine to the top.

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

Fawny Holiday Week

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying all of the inspiration from the Lawn Fawn and Lawn Fawnatics design teams for the Fawny Holiday Week! Today, I have a cute shaped card to share that features a few different sets from Lawn Fawn!

The images on these cards are from the Holiday Helpers and Sprinkled With Joy stamp sets. The images are all stamped onto Neenah 80 lbs white cardstock, colored with Copic markers, and cut with the coordinating die cuts. The image are all arranged on a white circle cut from the Dotted Circle Stackables die and attached with foam tape or glue. The sentiment from the Winter Big Scripty Words set is stamped in Cranberry ink. The rest of the sentiment is from the Sprinkled With Joy set stamped in black ink. Just make sure to not include the "be" part of the sentiment!

I added a Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackables cut from Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper behind the white circle. That patterned paper is no longer available, but it would also look really cute with the paper from the Really Rainbow Christmas paper. Then, I added another circle behind the patterned paper to make it a circle card. To finish, I added a few heart and star confetti shapes from Coconut Ice Sparkly Shaker Selection. Here's a close up on one of the cards:

I hope these have inspired you to create some Christmas cards! I can't wait to see what everyone creates! And don't forget to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration! :)
