Oh Come Let Us Adore Him

"So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and  placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." - Matthew 2:4-7

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that you all have a great Christmas this year. I have a card to share this morning that reflects the true meaning of Christmas.

This card features Neat and Tangled's Little Baby Jesus stamp and die set. This is my favorite stamp set for Christmas cards! I also used Lawn Fawn's Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle to emboss a piece of white cardstock to add some extra detail to the card.

This is a really cute and simple design that is easy to reproduce, too!

Merry Christmas everyone! I'll be back next year with more inspiration for you! :)

Christmas Letterpress Card

Hi everyone! I hope that you're having a great week so far! 

I have a fun card to share with you today for Taheerah's Advant Calendar Extravaganza! You can find out more information about the Advant blog hop on the Lawn Fawn blog!

I created this fun set of Christmas Letterpress cards! I saw this technique a while ago from Jennifer McGuire and I just had to try it out!

For this card, I used Lawn Fawn's Scripty Merry die, the Large Wreath die, Wild Rose and Freshly Cut Grass ink, white embossing powder, and the Christmas sentiment from the Cheery Christmas set. The letterpress technique gives this really neat inked impression on the card! Here is a close up on the card:

I also have a video to show you how to recreate this card! You can watch the video below or on the Whimsipost YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching and I hope it has inspired you to try this fun technique! Thanks and have a great weekend! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Woodland Critter Huggers

Hi everyone! It's the last day of the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! All of the new products will be available tomorrow, December 14th! Yay!

Today, we are sharing projects that feature the new Woodland Critter Huggers! Guys, this die set is soo cute! The set includes a ton of pieces that you can use to make different critters and they are designed with enough space so that the critters can hold candy! It is perfect to use for Valentine cards and treats!

I used the die to create this adorable deer! The brown, dark brown, and tan paper are also new cardstock colors! I added a die cut heart that is included in this set cut from Raspberry cardstock and attached it with a glue dot. I used a glue dot so that the hands can open to reveal a secret message...

... how cute is that!? I used an Everyday Sentiment Banner and stamped the sentiment from Riley's ABCs and For You, Deer stamp sets. It is so fun to open and close it's hands!

There are more adorable projects on the Lawn Fawn blog, so check it check! And thanks so much for all of your sweet comments this week! They always brighten my day! :)

Thanks again and have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Lacy Borders and Lacy Heart Stackables

Hello again! Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at two new die sets!

My first card features the new Lacy Borders die which includes three different borders.

To create this card, I inked white cardstock in a variety of colors - Ballet Slipper, Minty Fresh, Mermaid, Fresh Lavender, and two new colors, Peach Fuzz and Lemonade! Then, I used the border die to cut strips of paper to stack on the card base.

I also added some Hearts that were inked with Wild Rose ink and I attached a few sequins to the lacy detail. The sentiment is a new line border die and it was perfect to add to the top of the layers. Here's a close up on the card:

My second card features the new Lacy Heart Stackables! The hearts are cut from Ballet Slippper, Raspberry, and Chili Pepper cardstock. I also used the Scripty Love die and cut it from gold glitter cardstock to add as the sentiment.

I finished by adding a few enamel dots for some extra detail. Here's a close up:

LF Inspiration Week: How You Bean? Conversation Heart Add-On

Good morning! I hope you're having a good weekend so far! Today is a special day at our house because this is the day that my husband and I started dating, the day that we got engaged, and the day that our daughter was born! And one of our traditions is to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" every December 10th, so it's a busy day at our house, haha!

Anyways, the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues with a look at the new How You Bean Conversation Heart Add-On set! They look just like the candy conversation hearts!

I used the solid heart stamp and the little conversation messages to create a patterned paper for my card! The hearts are stamped in LF inks - Ballet Slippers, Minty Fresh, Fresh Lavender, and the new colors Lemonade and Peach Fuzz! The messages are stamped in Wild Rose ink.

I also used a new heart stackable die cut from vellem to frame the sentiment. I die cut the Scripty Be and Scripty Mine from Black Licorice cardstock and coated it with glossy accents for some shine! Here's a close up of the card:

Thanks for stopping by! Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for lots of cute cards from the rest of the design team! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Sweet Friends

Hi everyone! Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week starts today! Yay! The design team will be sharing lots of inspiration from the Valentine's release that will be available on Thursday, December 14th.

Today, we are sharing projects featuring the new Sweet Friends set. This set is so cute and has a lot of cute dessert puns! I couldn't decide which pun I liked the best, so I made a mini card set to showcase each dessert and a variety of puns!

These cards are 2 1/4" x 3 1/8" and they will be perfect to slip into lunch boxes for Valentine's Day week! To create the backgrounds, I masked off a square and inked the card bases with different Lawn Fawn Inks (Ballet Slipper, Mermaid, Minty Fresh), and two new colors - Lemonade and Peach Fuzz! I used a paint brush and some watered down black ink to flick some ink over the colored backgrounds. Then, I used the Selfie Frames dies to cut out a Polaroid frame from white cardstock. 

The cutest part of this set is the arms and legs that you can add to the images! It makes them so cute!

There's more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
