LF Inspiration Week: Stitched Apple Frames

Happy Saturday! Do you have anything fun planned for this weekend? My husband starts school next week, so I think we're just going to relax and enjoy the last slow weekend before school starts. And I'll make him do a few more projects before summer is over, haha!


Anyways, Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Stitched Apple Frames and Outside In Stitched Apple Stackables! I cut these tags from different colors of Lawn Fawn cardstock including Cilantro, Sticky Note, Chili Pepper, Vanilla Malt, Black Licorice, Noble Fir, Paper Bag, and the new gold glitter cardstock from the Holiday Sparkle pack. The rest of the sentiment is from the So Owlsome stamp set. I also used a hold punch to add a hole near the top and I tied Lime Lawn Trimmings for the string.


These turned out so cute and these would be adorable to add to a teacher gift! There's more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog, so don't forget to check it out! Thanks so much for visiting!! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Double Slider Surprise

Good morning! I hope that you're having a great day so far! Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues with a look at the new Double Slider Surprise die!


This die is so neat! I have seen cards like this before and they always seemed confusing to make, but this die set makes it so easy!


I really like the "whole herd" sentiment from the Hay There set, so I thought it would be cute to have a ton of animals there to wish happy birthday! I also used the dog from the Happy Howloween set and the party hats from the Wild For You set. The background is ink blended with Mermaid and Freshly Cut Grass.


The banner is also included in the Double Slider Surprise set, and I ink blended it with Peachy Keen ink. The hearts are stamped in Wild Rose ink, and the background paper is from the new Really Rainbow Christmas paper collection.


I hope you like the card and I can't wait to see what everyone creates with this new die! Also, check out my Instagram page for a video of this card in action!

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

LF Inspiration Week: Pick of the Patch and Spooky Fence Border

Hi everyone! I hope that you've had a great summer so far! I had to take a break from crafting this summer, so I apologize for not sharing more cards with you. But, I'm glad to be back and sharing more inspiration!!


Today, the Lawn Fawn design team is sharing projects for the August Release Week! We are sharing inspiration for the new Pick of the Patch stamp set.


This set is adorable and I really like that you can change the faces on the different pumpkins. The LF squirrels are always so cute and now they can carve pumpkins! I also added the Spooky Fence Border in the background cut from Storm Cloud cardstock. I used the Simple Grassy Hillsides die, the Sun and Moon die, and the Leafy Tree Backdrop die to help create the scene. The sky, grass, and moon are all inked with Distress Oxide inks, as well as the stars in the sky. Here's a close up on the scene:


The new products will be available for purchase from the Lawn Fawn store on Thursday, August 23rd. And check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration and for a chance to win some new goodies!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day! :)

I used the die set to create two large, smiling clouds in the sky! I also used the Critter Concert to create this cute birthday card. The sky is ink blended with Mermaid ink, and the grass is ink blended with Cilantro ink. I also used the Simple Grassy Hillsides and Simple Stitched Hillside Border for the grass.


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

LF Inspiration Week: Village Shops


Good morning! I have a fun card to share with you that features the Village Shops set from Lawn Fawn!


I also used the Reveal Wheel die to make it an interactive card! The images on this card are all colored with Prismacolor pencils. I also used a few images from the Happy Village set, such as the sun, trees, and speech bubble. I had to make sure to use the ice cream truck, because it's just so cute! The sky and grass and ink blended with Mermaid and Cilantro ink, respectively, and I also used the Simple Road Border to help create the scene. Here's a close up on the card:


The background paper is from the Really Rainbow collection, and I thought it went perfectly with the pink shop on the right side of the card. I also cut the sentiment so that it would fit inside of the speech bubble, and I added it above the house to make it look like the people inside were talking about going outside for ice cream, haha! There is an ice cream truck that drives past my house every Thursday afternoon and my kids always enjoy watching it go by! 

I also used the sentiments from the Reveal Wheel Sentiments. Here is a picture of the different sentiments that I used:


There are more projects on the Lawn Fawn blog, so don't forget to check them out! And there are giveaways over there this week, so make sure that you enter!

LF Inspiration Week: I Scream, You Scream

Hi everyone! It's time again for another Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! Yay!


Today, I have a card that features the I Scream, You Scream dies.


I used Ballet Slipper, Sunflower, Cilantro, Mermaid, and Chocolate Bar cardstock for the ice cream and cone. I also used coordinating inks to add a little bit of ink blending along the edges of the cardstock. I die cut the smiley faces and bite mark from the ice cream, and then added a piece of Black Licorice cardstock behind each ice cream scoop.

For the sentiment, I used Riley's ABCs stamped in black ink. I attached the ice cream with foam tape, added a few clear sequins, layered some Really Rainbow patterned paper behind the white cardstock panel, added some details with a white gel pen, and tied some Silver Sparkle Lawn Trimmings along the top. Here's a close up on the card:


I also have another card that I created that features the I Scream, You Scream dies and it's perfect for Father's Day! You can check it out here.

Check out more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day! Now I'm getting hungry for ice cream.... :)

Hoppy Father's Day Card

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a good morning today! It looks like a rainy day here, but it's the last day of school for my husband! We're excited to have him home for the summer!

I have a cute Father's Day card to share with you today that features the Toadally Awesome set from Lawn Fawn!


I used the Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables to cut a circle in a white cardstock panel that is slightly smaller than the card base. Then, I added a piece of cardstock behind the circle that is ink blended with Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides. I stamped all of the images onto white cardstock, colored them with Copic markers, and die cut them with the coordinating die cuts. The cattails and grass are attached with glue, but I used foam tape to attach the frogs and lily pads.


The banner is from the Shadox Box Card Ocean Add-On die. I cut the banner from white cardstock and ink blended it with Cilantro ink. Then, I stamped the sentiment from the Toadally Awesome set in black in and attached the banner with foam tape. Here's a close up on the card:


Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great day and I'll be back in a few days to share more card inspiration with you! :)

Floral Card Set with Hello Bluebird

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a good week so far! I have a fun card set to share with you that features Hello Bluebird stamps!


To create these cards, I stamped the large sentiments from Cheery Greetings onto a white cardstock panel cut with Lawn Fawn's Dotted Rectangle Stackables. Then, I used the solid rectangles included in the Cheery Greetings set, stamped it in black ink onto white cardstock, and used white embossing powder to heat emboss the different sentiments for each card.


I also stamped and colored the flowers from the Silly Birds stamp set with yellow, pink, and green Copic markers. I wanted the flowers to be different on each side of the sentiment, so I cut off the two smaller flowers on one of the flowers. Then, I attached the flowers with foam tape.


I also added a few details around the sentiments and flowers by stamping the three little lines and hearts included in the Cheery Greetings set. They are stamped in black ink and Wild Rose ink, respectively.


I finished the cards by attaching the white cardstock panels to patterned paper from the Perfectly Plaid Spring collection and attaching them to white card bases. This little set turned out so cute and I can't wait to mail them to friends!


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

Lawn Fawn and Marvy Uchida

Hello everyone! This week, the Lawn Fawn design team is teaming up with Marvy Uchida to bring you some awesome inspiration!


For my card today, I used the I Scream, You Scream dies to create a cute Father's Day card! My husband laughs at this card because he thinks it looks like the dad ice cream cone is wearing a toupee, haha! The ice cream and cones are cut from Lawn Fawn cardstock, and I used patterned paper from the Really Rainbow collection for the background, bow, and bow tie. I used the Put A Bow On It die set to create the bows. The sentiment features the Bannertastic, Riley's ABCs, and Louie's ABCs sets.

I also used the double ended jewel picker to help adhere the sprinkles. It was super helpful! And, I used a white gel pen from Marvy Uchida to help add details to the ice cream, cones, and sentiment.


There will be inspiration each day this week on the Lawn Fawn blog, so don't forget to check it out! And thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Happy Birthday to a Fungi

Hi everyone! I hope that you're all having a great week so far! We are enjoying the warm, summer weather and all of the fun activities that go with it (like bonfires, popsicles, and the kiddie swimming pool!) 

I have a fun birthday card to share with you today! Sometimes it is tough to create cards for the guys in our lives, but this card is simple and perfect for guys!


The "happy birthday to a" and the mushroom on the right are part of an exclusive set from Scrapbook.com a few years ago, but you can still create this card with other Lawn Fawn images that you may have. The other two mushrooms are from the Gleeful Gardens set and are colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is die cut from black cardstock with the Finley's ABCs die. The set Happy Happy Happy has sentiments that you could use to create the "happy birthday to a" sentiment in place of the exclusive set.


To create the background, I die cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with the Stitched Square Stackable die and ink blended it with Mermaid ink. I used the Simple Grassy Hillsides for the grass and ink blended it with Cilantro ink. I also stamped some extra grass from the Mom + Me set in Cilantro ink to add some more details to the scene. Here's a close up on the card:


 This card makes me laugh every time I read this sentiment and I think it might become my go-to card for all the guys in my family! Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day! :)

Sweet Birthday

Hi there! I have a fun card to share with you today that features Lawn Fawn's Sweetest Flavor stamp and die set! It's also my birthday today (yay!), so I thought it was the perfect day to share a birthday card with you! :)


For mini sets, I like to stamp the image multiples time and color them in rainbow order! And ice cream can come in almost any color, so this technique works perfectly with these cute ice cream cones! I also stamped the smiling and winking faces on the ice cream, gave a few of them cherries on top, and stamped sprinkles on each one with colored ink.

For the sentiment, I used the Scripty Sweet die and Reveal Wheel Sentiments stamp set. Recently I purchased a Wink of Stella glitter glitter pen (why did it take me so long!?), so you'll probably see a lot of glitter for a while, haha! I used the glitter pen on the cherries and the sweet sentiment. To finish the card, I mounted the white cardstock panel to a piece of Really Rainbow patterned paper. It went perfectly with those colorful ice cream cones! :)


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

Colorful Bird Birthday

 Hi everyone! I hope that you're having a good week so far! We are enjoying some beautiful weather in PA! The kids and I have enjoyed playing at different parks and eating a lot of picnic lunches - it's so nice!

I have a colorful card to share with you today that features the Silly Birds set from Hello Bluebird.


I ordered a few Hello Bluebird sets recently, and this was the set that my daughter picked out. I think she liked their silly eyes, haha! I stamped the birds on white cardstock and I colored them with bright, rainbow colors. It's so fun that you can make the birds any color that you want!


I also added a few balloons and gave each of the birds birthday hats. I added grass behind an ink blended ground and also a few hearts and music notes above the birds. The hearts are coated with some Wink of Stella to give them some sparkle. The sentiment is white heat embossed onto black cardstock and cut with the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banner. I also used the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames to add a white frame around the scene.


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

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! :)
