LF Sneak Peek Week: Fortune Teller Tabby

Hi everyone! I hope that you're excited for this week, because it's Sneak Peek Week at Lawn Fawn! We'll be sharing projects this week that feature new products that will be available on August 22nd. Start making your list and saving your pennies! :)

Today, I'm sharing a card that features the new Fortune Teller Tabby stamp set and new Reveal Wheel Circle Add-On. How cute is that tabby?! 

The tabby is stamped onto white cardstock with Jet Black ink, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the coordinating die. The set includes a circle die so that you can cut out the center of the crystal ball. I also stamped and colored a kitty from the Keep On Swimming stamp set. I used the speech bubble from Say What? Pets for part of the sentiment. To get the sentiment straight, I cut the stamp in half and curved each part of the sentiment until it looked straight.

For the reveal wheel, I die cut the top paper from Fog cardstock with the Reveal Wheel Square Add-On die and I used the new circle add-on for the center. The fortune teller set includes those fun, curved sentiments inside the crystal ball! And there is also a reveal wheel template for the circle add-on which makes stamping the sentiment so easy!

Before I glued the cats to the card, I cut a piece of grey Gotta Have Gingham patterned paper and added it as a floor for the scene. I also added a thin piece of white cardstock to look like trim. Then, I glued the cats in place and added the speech bubble with foam tape.

After the reveal wheel was assembled, I attached it to a piece of Sparkle Cardstock - Autumn and attached it to a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" white card base. I also added a few stars and sequins above the cat to add some extra detail to the card. Here's a look at all of the sentiments in the crystal ball:

I'll be back again tomorrow with some more inspiration with the new Lawn Fawn products! Everything will be available on August 22nd! Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more sneak peeks!

We Herd It's Your Birthday with Waffle Flower

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great summer so far! The weather has been really nice so far, but this weekend is suppose to be really hot and humid! I'll probably just stay in our basement and eat popsicles until the weather cools down, haha!

I have a set of cards to share with you that feature the We Herd stamp set from Waffle Flower! I recently found this set in a craft store on vacation and I had to get it! That group of llamas is so fun!

For the first card, I stamped the bunnies and balloons onto white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. I fussy cut the images and set them aside until my background was ready. For the background, I ink blended Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks onto Bristol smooth cardstock and spritzed it was a little bit of water. I stamped the sentiment with black ink and attached the images with foam tape. I used a thin black markers to draw the lines for the balloons and added a few clear sequins. I finished by adding a white frame around the card cut with the Stitched Rectangle Frames from Lawn Fawn.

My second card features the llamas in the stamp set! My favorite is the llama with the hair covering his face, haha! For this card, I added party hats to the llamas to help them celebrate the birthday! The background was created with Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron distress oxide inks. I also added a few details to the images with a white gel pen.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you like the cards! Have a great day!! :)

Happy Birthday with Hello Bluebird

Hi friends! I hope you're all having a great summer so far! We're enjoying the warm weather by spending lots of time outside either camping, playing in the yard, or visiting our local amusement park.

I have a fun card to share with you today that features some products from Hello Bluebird!

 This card uses the flamingos from the Silly Birds stamp set! My daughter and I always have so much fun coloring those cute birds! I stamped and colored a trio of birthdays with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating die cuts. I added a birthday hat to each of them, and also colored and cut out some hearts and grass that are included in the stamp set.

I heat embossed part of the sentiment onto black cardstock and cut out the rest of the sentiment with the Happy Birthday Words die set. That scripty sentiment is so cute! I created a scene for the birds by ink blending a sky with Broken China and Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks. The grass is die cut with the Simple Grassy Hillsides die from Lawn Fawn and ink blended with Lucky Clover and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks. After creating the background, I attached it to a white card base with a tape runner, glued the "birthday" and grass images in place, and attached the birds, hearts, and "happy" sentiment with foam tape. Here's a close up on the card:

Thanks so much for visiting today and I hope you have a great week! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Stitched Cupcake

Good morning!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Stitched Cupcake die set.

This set makes the cutest cupcakes! For my card, I die cut the cupcake wrappers from Really Rainbow Scallops patterned paper. The cupcake is die cut from Vanilla Malt cardstock, and the icing is from various shades of Lawn Fawn cardstock.

Once I had the cupcakes attached together, I added liquid glue to the top of the icing and sprinkles on some chunky glitter to make it look like sprinkles. After that dried, I die cut and attached the candles and hearts onto each of the cupcakes.

I created a slim line card that measures 3 1/2" by 8 1/2" and I attached a piece of grey Spring Fling patterned paper before I attached the cupcakes. I die cut and added strawberries along the bottom and attached them foam tape. The sentiment is from the Scripty Sweet die and On the Beach stamp set.

To create the "sweet" sentiment, I die cut three layers from white cardstock and glued the layers together. Then, I used the embossing ink pad to add ink to the die cut and coated it with rose gold embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder, added another layer of embossing power, and heat set it again. Once it was dry, I glued it to the bottom of the card and added the rest of the sentiment with foam tape. Here's a closer look at the card:

Thanks so much for visiting today! And thank you for all of the sweet comments this week! Have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Scripty Hello Border

Hi friends! I have a card set to share with you today for the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!

Today, I am featuring the Hello Border die. The scripty sentiment is so cute and perfect to add to cards. I paired the sentiment with the Smooth Sailing stamp set to create a night and day card set.

For each of the cards, I used the Stitched Simple Wavy Borders die for the ocean waves, and the Stitched Hillside Borders die for the sandy beach. For the day card, I added the sun and clouds from the Rain or Shine Before 'n Afters stamp set. I cut the sun from behind the rainbow, and attached it behind the clouds. I also added a few hearts stamped in Wild Rose ink.

The night card features the moon from the Happy Howloween stamp set. I also added a few die cut stars and stamped a few smaller stars in Yeti ink. Here's a closer look at the card:

LF Inspiration: Shadow Box Rainbow Add-On

Hi everyone! I forgot to share this card with you yesterday for the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!

This card features the Shadow Box Card Rainbow Add-On die! The die works great with the Shadow Box Card die, but it can also be used on its own! I used the rainbow, clouds, and stars to create a cute little scene for the unicorn and fairies from the A Little Sparkle stamp set.

To create the ink blended background, I used one of the clouds from the rainbow add-on die to create a stencil! The sky is ink blended with Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks. I also added a sentiment from the Scripty Hello die and the Reveal Wheel Sentiments. Here's a closer look at the card:

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