LF Inspiration Week: Screen Time

Hello again! It's the last day of the Lawn Fawn Inspiration week, and today we are sharing cards that feature the new Screen Time set!


This set includes a tv, video game, phones, and tons of cute accessories to use in your scene! I created two cards today for two different occasions!


The first card features the girl and boy binge watching tv! I'll probably give this to my husband sometime since we like binge watching tv until we fall asleep after the kids go to bed, haha! The images are all colored with Copic markers and attached with foam tape. The banner is from the Bannertastic set, and I also lightly inked the center of the card with Mermaid ink. Can you spot my mistake on the card? I originally had the sentiment stamped at the top without the banner, but I ended up smearing it after I stamped it! Opps! So, I just stamped the sentiment in the banner and put it over top of the mistake. You can see the old sentiment peeking out along the bottom of the banner, haha!


I kept the design the same for the second card, but I changed up the sentiment and had the boy and girl playing a video game instead of watching tv. I also used Gotta Have Gingham patterned paper as the background for each of the cards.


Thanks again for stopping by today! And thank you for all of the sweet comments this week! They always bring a smile to my face! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Shadow Box Card Theater Add-On

Good morning! I hope you have enjoyed all of the inspiration this week! Today, the Lawn Fawn design team is featuring projects that use the new Shadow Box Card add-ons!


I used the new Shadow Box Card Theater Add-On to create this cute card!


The add-on die includes the curtains to make the shadow box look like a stage! The curtains are cut from Chili Pepper cardstock and lightly inked around the edge with red ink. I also used Sunflower cardstock for the stars and Knock On Wood patterned paper for the stage. The banner is a new die from the Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On set and the sentiment is from the new How You Bean? Star Add-On set.


For the background, I created a galaxy sky on a piece of white cardstock with dark blue, purple, and black ink. I also spritzed it with some white paint to make it look like a starry sky. I finished it by adding the rocket and planet from the Out Of This World set and hung them with Ocean Sparkle Lawn Trimmings to make them look like stage decorations. And the best part about this card is that it folds flat to mail! The shadow boxes are so neat!

Check out the rest of the inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog! And don't forget that all of the new products will be available this Thursday, May 17th! Start making your shopping list! :)

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

LF Inspiration Week: Manatee-rific and Stitched Wave Borders

Hello again! I hope that you had a great weekend. Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today, yay!


Today, the design team is sharing projects that feature the new Manatee-rific stamp set and the Stitched Wave Borders die!


How cute are those manatees?! I started by taking three white cardstock panels and cutting them with the Stitched Wave Borders and Dotted Rectangle Stackables die to create the background. Each of the waves are ink blended with a different color - Minty Fresh, Forget-Me-Not, and Fish Tank. I also used the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders die to create the ground, and I ink blended it with Doe ink. The images are all colored with Copic markers, and the sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder onto black cardstock. I finished the card by adding a bow along the top with the Ocean Sparkle Lawn Trimmings.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back again tomorrow with more inspiration! Have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Critter Concert

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a good weekend so far! Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues with a look at the new Critter Concert set!


Guys, this set is so cute! The critters are playing different instruments which include a trumpet, French horn, flute, and violin. And the bird can either be the conductor, or play the cymbals or triangle! The critters are all so cute, but that bear is my favorite!


All of the images are colored with Copic markers and attached with foam tape. The birthday hats are from the Wild For You stamp set. I stamped the sentiment to make it look like it was coming from the trumpet and I added a few music notes around the critters. I also used the new Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames to frame the scene. 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Check out more ways to use this set on the Lawn Fawn blog! Have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: You Are Sublime and Lift the Flap Circles

Hello again! I hope that you had a great week. Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?


Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the new stamp and die set, You Are Sublime! This is such a cute, underwater themed set. The scuba diver is so cute, but that angler fish is definitely my favorite!


I used this new set along with the Finley's ABCs die to create a big, bold sentiment. I started by lightly ink blending blue ink in the middle of a white card panel that was die cut from the Outside In Stitched Rectangle die. The images are all colored with Copic markers and are glued or attached with foam tape around the sentiment. The "hope you have a" and "birthday" sentiments are heat embossed with white embossing power onto black cardstock and are attached with foam tape to help them stand out from the scene. 


I also have another card to share with you that features the Lift The Flap Circles die! 


I started by die cutting three circles from white cardstock with the Dotted Circle Stackable die. One of the circles stayed white and became the back flap of the card, but the other two circles were ink blended with Distress Oxide inks and spritzed with water to add detail. Then, I took one of the ink blended circles and used the Lift The Flap Circles die to create the flap. Then, I attached the two circles together with glue. The images and sentiment are from a new set, Manatee-rific, and they are all colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder onto black cardstock and attached with foam tape. I also added a few air bubbles and sequins to the front of the card.


Thanks so much for visiting! I have more inspiration to share with you tomorrow! Have a great weekend! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Reveal Wheel

Good morning! I hope you are enjoying the inspiration from the Lawn Fawn design team this week! I am so excited to share this card with you today!


The Reveal Wheel is a die set that creates spinner wheel cards! Lawn Fawn did an amazing job with this die, and it makes it so easy to create spinner cards. I also used the new Reveal Wheel Sentiments along with the Reveal Wheel Speech Bubble Add-On to create this cute card.


Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for a video on how to put together the spinner wheel. To create the rest of the card, I used Distress Oxide inks to create the water background and spritzed it with water. The images are from the new You Are Sublime set, as well as the Octopi My Heart set for the octopus. I used Copic markers and a white gel pen to color all of the images. To create the ground, I used the Chocolate Bar cardstock along with the Stitched Hillside Borders. Here's a look at all of the sentiments that are revealed in the speech bubble:


There are so many amazing cards on the Lawn Fawn blog that feature the Reveal Wheel die, so definitely check it out! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share projects with you this week for the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! Everything will be available on Thursday, May 17th, and it is all so cute!


Today, we are showcasing the Coaster Critters stamp set. This set features a trio of critters at an amusement park! It is so cute that the critters can fit inside of the roller coaster cars. And did you see the Coaster Critters Slide On Over Add-On die to use with the roller coaster? So clever!


For my card, I used the Peekaboo Backdrop and Stitched Hillside Borders dies to create four scenes at the amusement park. The images are all colored with Copic markers and are attached with foam tape. I also think it's so cute that the critters can fit inside of the ticket booth!

I Look Up To You Mom

Hi everyone! I have one last Mother's Day card to share with you today!


For this card, I used the Rub-A-Dub-Dub ducks along with some of the smaller images from the Toadally Awesome stamp sets. I also used the Stitched Hillside Backdrop die and ink blended it with Forget-Me-Not ink to make it look like water.


The images are all colored with Copic markers and I used a white gel pen to add some detail to the ducks cheeks. I added some grass behind the water and tucked in a few cattails along the edge. The grass is inked blended with Cilantro ink and I used Mermaid ink for the sky. The sentiment is from the Mom + Me stamp set.


I hope that you have enjoyed the Mother's Day cards this week, and I hope it has inspired you to make some cards! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend! :)

So Happy That You Are My Mom

Hi again! I have a cute, floral, Mother's Day card to share today!


This round, floral card is so cute and is a perfect way to send "flowers" to your mom! :) The flowers are from the Little Flowers and Spring Sprig sets. To make the flowers and leaves, I ink blended white cardstock with Wild Rose and Cilantro ink before die cutting the images. I also added black enamel dots to the center of the flowers for some extra detail.


The sentiment is stamped in black ink and is from the Happy Happy Happy Add-On:Family and Mom + Me stamp sets. I really like the look of the mixed sentiments! I finished the card by attaching the card panel with foam dots to a the Perfectly Plaid Spring patterned paper cut from the Dotted Circle Stackable die. Here's a close up on the card:


I hope you have a great day! I'll be back again tomorrow with one last Mother's Day card. :)

Hi there! I have another Mother's Day card to share with you today!


This card features the Rub-A-Dub-Dub stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn. Those ducks are so cute and that set has the perfect sentiment for Mother's Day! The images are all colored with Copic markers. The ducks are attached with foam tape and the rest of the images are attached with glue.


For the background, I used the Gotta Have Gingham with Sunflower cardstock along the bottom. The gingham paper looks like it could be wallpaper in a bathroom!


Thanks for stopping by! I'll have another card to share with you tomorrow! :)

Happy Mother's Day Foxes

Hi everyone! I hope that you're having a good week so far! I have a few Mother's Day cards to share with you this week!


The card that I'm sharing today features the Mom + Me stamp set from Lawn Fawn. The images are either stamped with inks (Freshly Cut Grass, Doe, Peachy Keen) or colored with Copic markers. The background is ink blended with Mermaid ink and the grass is inked with Cilantro ink. The sentiment is from the Happy Happy Happy Add-On: Family and Happy Happy Happy stamp sets.


I used the Birch Trees die to add some trees to the background, and I attached them with glue. The rest of the images are attached with glue except for the stump and foxes, which are attached with foam tape. After finishing the scene, I attached the panel to a piece of Gotta Have Ginham patterned paper cut from the Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.


I'll be back again tomorrow to share more Mother's Day card inspiration with you all! Have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Speech Bubbles

Hi everyone! I hope you have enjoyed all of the inspiration from the Lawn Fawn design team this week!

Today, we are sharing projects that feature the Speech Bubbles die set! This set is great to use to make different critters talking! My four year old enjoys knock knock jokes, so I thought this joke would be perfect to use for a birthday card!


The inside reveals the joke pun and a pivot pop-up scene! The animals are all from the Wild For You stamp and die set, and the sentiment is made with Riley's ABCs. This card is so fun and it's even more fun to watch the recipient open it on their birthday!


Thanks so much for stopping by! And thank you for all of the sweet comments this week! You guys are the best! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Mini Pop-Up Butterflies

Hi everyone! The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Mini Pop-Up Butterflies!


These butterflies are so cute! For this card, I started with a white piece of cardstock that was slightly smaller than the card base. I used the large and middle butterfly dies to create a row of butterfly cutouts along the edge. I also used some black ink and flicked it onto the cardstock to give it some extra detail.


Then, I used the middle and small butterfly dies to cut butterflies from Really Rainbow patterned paper. I attached the white cardstock to the card base and glued the butterflies into the cutouts. Only glue the center of the butterflies so that the wings can be folded up slightly. I finished the card by adding the Scripty Thanks cut from black cardstock and adhering a few clear sequins around the butterflies.


Don't forget to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration! Thanks and I hope you have a great day! :)

The kids and flowers are from the Easter Party set and the sentiment is cut from white cardstock with the Thanks Line Border die. I also used the Dotted Circle Stackables die and the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders die to help create the scene.

LF Inspiration Week: Year Eight

Hi everyone! I hope that your weekend is going well! We're enjoying the gorgeous weather in central PA this weekend! It's such a nice change from the snow last weekend, haha!


The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Year Eight stamp set! I created a fun interactive birthday card! 


When you pull the tab, it reveals the fortune! To make the fortunes slide, just add a small slit behind the fortune cookies with an x-acto knife, and slide the fortunes behind the slit. I did have to add extra paper at the end of the fortune to make sure that the fortunes don't slide the whole way out. And since the fortunes aren't very long, I added a tab with the words "pull here" stamped from the Push Here set, so that the fortunes are easier to slide out. I also added some hearts around the cookies with the Hearts die cut from Raspberry cardstock.


This card is actually a recreation of a card that I made a few years ago with the retired Good Fortune stamp set from LF. You can check out that card here! It's fun to recreate cards from before and see how your style may have changed throughout the years!


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

LF Inspiration Week: Slow Down and Enjoy

Good morning! I hope that you all had a good week! Do you have anything fun planned for this weekend? We're going to take the kids to a local soap box derby race this morning! My car-loving two year old boy is so excited to go and see the cars!


Today, the Lawn Fawn design team is sharing projects that feature the Slow Down and Enjoy stamp set. The sentiment "this is where I fell asleep" is perfect to use with the sloth on the bookmark dies! The animals are really cute to use a bookmarks, but they are also cute to use on cards!


For my card, I paired the elephant and sloth with the bear and deer from the For You, Deer set to make a fun birthday card! I tucked the animals behind a piece of Gotta Have Gingham patterned paper to make it look like they're sitting at a table. Add cupcakes from the Bun In The Oven set and party hats from the Wild For You set and the animals are at a birthday party! The sentiment is from Bannertastic, Simply Sentiments, and Hang In There stamp sets.


Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for a video on how to recreate this card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend! :)
