LF Inspiration Week: Magic Picture Changer


Good morning! Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues with a look at the new Magic Picture Changer die! This die is so creative and helps create an awesome, interactive card!


This card looks intimidating, but it's really easy to assemble. Check out the Lawn Fawn YouTube for a tutorial on how to use the Magic Picture Changer die. I used Riley's ABCs to stamp the sentiment onto the first part of the die. To create the speech bubble, I inked the bottom portion of a speech bubble from the A Birdie Told Me stamp set. Then, I ink blended around the sentiment with Distress Oxide inks.


I did the same thing to create the sentiment on the slider part of the die. I wanted to make sure to change the speech bubble so that it looked like the other bunny was talking. Once the slider pieces were finished, I weaved the pieces together and glued the sides down.


Then, I die cut the area around the slider part, ink blended it with Distress Oxides inks, and added a piece of ink blended grass along the bottom. I stamped the images from the new Eggstra Amazing Easter and Butterfly Kisses stamp sets and colored the images with Copic markers. I arranged the images on the frame, attached a few of the images with foam tape and some with glue, and then attached it to the slider.


To finish the card, I added the pull tap which was cut from Raspberry cardstock and stamped with the Push Here stamp set. I taped a piece of Spring Fling patterned paper to a white card base, and then attached the slider to the card with foam tape.  Here's a look at the card with it's surprise message:


The design team has some amazing examples on the Lawn Fawn blog, so check it out! This die is so creative and easy to use! I can't wait to see what everyone creates with this die!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Oh Gnome!

Hi everyone! I hope you're excited because today is the start of the Lawn Fawn Inspiration and Release week! All of the new products will be available on Thursday, February 21st. In the mean time, the design team will be sharing lots of inspiration for you!


Today, we're sharing projects that feature the new Oh Gnome! stamp and die set!


This new set is so sweet and can be used for so many different occasions. I used it today to create a birthday card! To create this card, I started by die cutting a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables die and ink blending it with Mermaid ink. Then, I used the Simple Grassy Hillsides and Stitched Garden Border to add the grass and ground. I ink blended the grass and ground with Freshly Cut Grass and Doe ink respectively. Then, I attached the scene to a white card base with double sided tape.


I stamped all of the images from this scene onto Neenah cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. Then, I used the coordinating die cuts to cut the images and arranged them on the scene. The images are attached with either foam tape or liquid glue.

After that, I stamped the sentiment at the top in black ink and added a few hearts stamped in Wild Rose ink. I think it's so cute that you can stack the presents in the wheel barrel to look like someone is getting a ton of gifts for their birthday!


Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration! I'll be back again tomorrow with another card to share with you! Have a great day! :)

Floral Felt Headbands

Hi everyone! I hope that you're having a good week so far! It is suppose to be really cold here this week, with the real feel temperatures reaching 20 degrees below zero! Brr!

I have a fun project to share with you today! I have been busy making headbands for my daughter and her little sister, who should be arriving any day now!


I used the Flower Power die set from Lawn Fawn to cut all of the flower petals and leaves. The two largest flower petals are used to create the felt flowers with the white center, and I only used the large die for the flowers with the black center.


All of the felt, except for the black felt, are from Secret Garden color palette from Benzie Design. That color set is perfect for creating flowers! The black felt is just whatever I had in my craft stash, and I'm pretty sure it came from Michael's or Joann's. 


I also used the White Felt Pom-Poms from Benzie Design for the inside of some of the flowers. To create the black inside for the other set of flowers, I cut a strip of black felt, hot glued it together length wise, cut slits in the felt, and then rolled the felt to create the inside petals. Here's a link to a picture tutorial on how to create the insides here! I created the Loopy Flowers and adjusted how much I wanted for the inside of the flowers.


Once the flowers were done, I hot glued them to a tan nylon headband. I may take a few and attach them to hair clips for my older daughter.


These are so easy to create with the Lawn Fawn dies and Benzie felt! Which style do you like better? I can't decide between the two sets!

Thanks so much for stopping and have a great day! :)

Lawn Fawn Sneak Week Day 4

Good morning everyone! I hope you have enjoyed the sneak peeks on the Lawn Fawn blog this week! What has been your favorite set so far?


I have two cards to share with you today! My first card features a new stamp set, Get Well Before 'n Afters! It includes images of critters when they're sick and after they get better! It's so cute and it works great with the Magic Picture Changer die!


For this card, I used Finley's ABCs die to create a big, bold sentiment. The "get" and "soon" are from the Get Well Before 'n Afters stamp set and are white heat embossed onto black cardstock. The clouds are from the new Butterfly Kisses set (how cute are they with the smiling faces?!) I also used the Stitched Wave Borders to create the ocean for the whale. The top ocean wave is cut from vellum so that you can see the whale behind it.


My second card features the cute dinosaurs from the new RAWRSOME set! That pterodactyl is my favorite from the set, as well as the baby brontosaurus! I colored the dinosaurs in a rainbow of colors and gave each of them a party hat. You can't have a birthday party with out the hats! :)


I also used the new Simple Wavy Banners to highlight the sentiment. The sky, ground, and grass are lightly ink blended with Lawn Fawn ink, and I used the Simple Grassy Hillsides and Stitched Hillside Borders dies to help create the scene. Here's a close up on the card:

Lawn Fawn Sneak Week Day 3

Hi there! There's more sneak peeks on the Lawn Fawn blog today! One of them is a really cool Magic Picture Changer die, so make sure to check out the samples of that - it's so neat!


I have another card to share with you today. I used the images from the new Butterfly Kisses set, along with two new dies!


I used the grass from the new Mushroom Border die to create a grassy hillside. I really like this new grass die because it creates shorter grass than some of the other Lawn Fawn grassy hillsides. I also used the new Fancy Wavy Banners die to highlight the sentiment. I cut the banner from Ballet Slipper cardstock and inlaid a banner cut from white cardstock. The banner die set also includes some other great banners, so make sure to check it out!

The sky and grass are created with Distress Oxide inks. The images are all colored with Copic markers and attached with foam tape or glue. I used the Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables die to create highlight the scene. Here's a close up on the card:


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day, and stop by again tomorrow for some more sneak peeks! :)

Lawn Fawn Sneak Week Day 2

Hi everyone! What do you think of the Lawn Fawn sneak peeks so far?! There are so many adorable new sets!!


My card today features the new Oh Gnome! stamp set, as well as some of the new patterned papers!


I used the new Spiffy Speckles set for the sky and grass. That patterned paper set is so pretty and adds subtle detail without being overwhelming. I have a feeling that I'll be reaching for that patterned paper set a lot! The grass is cut from the new Mushroom Border die set. The scene is framed with the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames. Then, I used another new paper set - Really Rainbow Scallops - to frame the scene. That new paper set also adds subtle detail and comes in a rainbow of colors!

Here's a close up on the card. How cute are the girl gnomes?!


Stop by again tomorrow for some more sneak peeks! Have a great day! :)

Lawn Fawn Sneak Week Day 1

Good morning! I hope that you're excited because today is Day One of the Lawn Fawn Sneak Week! Yay!! The new products are being showcased at Creativation, but will not be available for purchase until February 21st.


Make sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog today for a sneak peek at a bunch of new stamp sets! For my card today, I used the Butterfly Kisses set. This set is so cute and includes a bear, bunny, fox, and a bunch of cute, little butterflies!


I also used another new die - the Straight Flower Border die. The sky, grass, and flowers are inked with a variety of Lawn Fawn inks. I used double sided tape to attach the sky and flowers, and then added the grass with foam tape, which was cut with the Grassy Border die. The images are all colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating die cuts. Some images are attached with foam tape, but most of them are attached with liquid glue. I finished by stamping the sentiment in the lower right corner of the card.



There's more sneak peeks on the Lawn Fawn blog, so make sure to check them out! I'll be back again tomorrow with another card to share with you! :)

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
