Lawn Fawn Sneak Week Day 5

Hi there! I hope you have enjoyed the sneak peeks this week from Lawn Fawn! Which products are on your wish list?

I have one more card to share this week and it features the new Dandy Day patterned paper. This is such a fun collection and perfect for spring!

I used the new Oliver's Stitched ABCs dies to create a thank you card. I cut each of the letters two times - once with the darker shade and once with the lighter shade. Then, I attached them together slightly offset so that the lighter shade looked like a shadow. This was a quick card to put together and it turned out so cute! Here's a closer look at the card:

Thanks again for visiting! All of your comments this week have brightened my day! I hope you all have a great weekend! :)

Lawn Fawn Sneak Week Day 4

Hello! The Lawn Fawn sneak week continues with a look at more of the new stamp sets! All of these new products will be available on Thursday, February 20th .

I have two cards to share today that feature the new Swan Soiree stamp set. This might be my favorite set from this new release. The swans and babies are so cute!

This card also features the new Cattails Border die. It goes perfectly with the swans and would also be really cute with the frogs from the Toadally Awesome stamp set. For this card, I also used the Grassy Hillside Borders die, Woodgrain Cardstock (for the tops of the cattails), and the Leafy Tree Backdrop die for the border. 

My second card also features the swans, but in a night time scene! I like how the swans can be used in day or night time scenes and can also be used with a variety of sentiments!

For this card, I ink blended the water and sky with distress oxide inks and spritzed them to give them more detail. I used the Stitched Hillside borders to create the water and also the Bayou Backdrop die for the leaves along the top. The swans are attached with foam tape and the smaller images are attached with liquid glue.

This card is perfect to use for a wedding card! Here's a closer look at the scene:

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great day!! :)

Lawn Fawn Sneak Week Day 3

Hi friends! The Lawn Fawn Sneak Week continues today with a look at more of the new products! All of these new stamps, dies, papers, and other items will be available on Thursday, February 20th.

My first card today features the new Really High Five stamp set. Those critters are so cute on the trampoline or flying with the balloons! I used the new Hello Sunshine Remix paper for the background, and I attached the images and sentiments with foam tape.

The outside of the card is fun, but the real surprise is inside the card! This is the new Pop-Up Happy Birthday die and it adds such a fun surprise inside! The new Oliver's Stitched ABC's die are designed to fit perfectly with the pop-up die! So clever! To make the inside colorful and fun, I cut the letters from the new Shimmer Cardstock - it's so pretty!

My next card today, features the new Swan Soiree stamp set. How adorable are those baby swans?! I lightly inked the background with pink ink and used the images from the Swan Soiree set to create the scene.

I used the Oliver's Stitched ABC's die to create the sentiment along with the sentiments from the swan set. Those stitched abc's might be my new favorite alphabet die! The swan letters are cut from the new Shimmer cardstock, too! Here's a closer look at the card:

Make sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration with the new products!

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great evening! :)

Lawn Fawn Sneak Week Day 1

Hi friends! I'm so excited to share cards this week that feature new Lawn Fawn goodies! These new products are being shared at Creativation and will be available for purchase Thursday, February 20th. 

There are a lot of cute stamp sets that are being shared on the Lawn Fawn blog today, so definitely check it out! I'm sharing a card today that features the new A Bug Deal stamp and die set!

How cute are those little bugs?! The rolly pollies are my favorite and I have a feeling I will be using those tree branches and leaves a lot! I ink blended the background with Mermaid ink and used the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies for the detail around the edge. The image are all colored with Copic markers and attached with glue or foam tape. The sentiment comes from another new stamp set - Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments

I'll be back again tomorrow with another new card to share! Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day! :)

Seasons Giving Blog Hop

Hi friends and Happy New Year! :)

I'm excited to be joining the Seasons Givings Blog Hop! This hop is a way for us to say thank you for your love and support this year. Your comments throughout the year have brighten my day and I'm so glad that I can share card inspiration with you all! :)

As a way to say thank you, each stop in this blog hop has a giveaway! Everyone has something different, so make sure to stop and leave a comment at each blog in the hop for your chance to win some goodies!

Before I get to the giveaway, I have a card to share with you! I created this thank you card set from products by The Stamp Market!

I started by cutting pieces of Lawn Fawn's cardstock - Guava, Sunflower, and Mermaid. Then, I white heat embossed the background with the Diamond Tile Background stamp. I love that fun diamond design! I used the coordinating inks from Lawn Fawn to ink around the edge of the paper for some extra detail, and then attached the panels to the white card base. 

For the sentiment, I used the Handwritten Thanks dies and cut the bottom layer from vellum and the top layer from Storm Cloud cardstock. I glued the thank you dies together and then glued them to the background. I finished the card by adding a few clear jewels around the sentiment. Here's a close up on the cards:

Now, onto the giveaway!

I have a variety of items to giveaway - a few stamp sets, dies, inks, brushes, and jewel stickers. I might also find some other items to include in the giveaway before I mail it along. :)

LF Inspiration Week: XOXO Backdrop

Good morning! It's the last day of the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! All of the new products will be available at the Lawn Fawn store tomorrow, Thursday, December 12th! Yay!

Today, the design team is sharing inspiration that features the new XOXO Backdrop die. For my card, I used the backdrop die to cut acetate to create a reusable stencil! I love to use my dies to create stencils that I can use over and over again!

I started by taking a white cardstock panel and adding a bunch of hearts with the Just Stitching Hearts die. I made sure that a few of the hearts overlapped to help fill up the background. I used the stitching hearts and scrap paper to make a mask for each of the hearts and ink blended them with light ink. I taped down the heart mask and then laid the XOXO stencil that I created on top and ink blended with a darker ink for each of the hearts. I love the little xoxo's that are in the background!

To create the sentiment, I die cut the black sparkle cardstock with the Scripty Love die and attached it to the card. The "sending" is from the Stud Puffin stamp set and is white heat embossed onto black cardstock and attached with foam tape. I added the cardstock panel to a white card base and finished by adding a few clear sequins to the background. Here's a closer look at the card:

Thank you so much for visiting and for all of your comments this week! I can't wait to see what everyone creates with the new products!

I hope you all have a great day! :)
