Fawny Holiday Week

Good morning! It's the Fawny Holiday Week and the design team, Lawn Fawnatics team, video design team, and Fawnies at the LFHQ are sharing holiday projects this week!

I have a card set to share today that helps to remind us of the true reason for Christmas.


I took a piece of white cardstock, die cut it with the Stitched Square Stackables die, and ink blended it with light green ink. I used the pine needle branches from the Frosty Fairy Friends stamp set and stamped them in Noble Fir and Cilantro ink around the edges. I attached the panel to a card base made with the Noble Fir cardstock.

I used a variety of stamp sets to create the sentiment. The "oh" is from the Winter Big Scripty Words stamp and die set. The "adore" is from Quinn's ABCs stamp and die set. The "come let us" is from the Winter Skies, Meow You Doin', and Offset Sayings: Christmas stamp sets. And the "Him" is created with Riley's ABCs stamp set. This is one of my favorite Christmas songs, and I love how this card turned out!

Thanks so much for visiting! Have an amazing day!

Merry Mice with Lawn Fawn and Chibitronics

Hi friends! Lawn Fawn has a fun surprise for you all today! They have teamed up with Chibitronics to bring you this adorable, exclusive stamp set and card making kit! The kit includes a medium sized stamp set, coordinating dies, lights, template, and easy-to-follow instructions. The kit is available at Lawn Fawn and the Chibitronic stores while supplies last!


I created an outdoor scene for the mice to decorate their Christmas tree. The images are all stamped onto white cardstock with Jet Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images and to add the hole in the star for the light. Then, I used white embossing powder for part of the sentiment and Finley's ABCs dies for the "mice" all with black cardstock. The "mice" letters were coated with the LF glitter pen for some extra sparkle.


The background was created by heat embossing the snow from the Snowy Backdrops stamp set. Then, I ink blended the background with Peacock and Blue Jay ink. I created a snowy hillside with the Stitched Hillside Borders die from white cardstock, and I also created a frame by cutting out the tree from the Leafy Tree Backdrop die. Once the scene was created, I lined up the front panel with a white card base and used a pencil to mark where the light needed to go. I created a simple circuit with the Chibitronics kit, placed the battery to make sure that the circuit worked, and then added two layers of foam tape around the battery and all over the card base. Then, I attached the front panel to the base! It's so satisfying to push that little present and see the star light up!


Here's a closer look at the card with the star lit up. My daughter had a lot of fun being a hand model for me, haha! I also think she might try to sneak this card to keep in her room and play with at night!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration using this stamp set and card kit, and don't forget to order the kit at the Lawn Fawn store before supplies run out! Have a great day! :)

Hello Adventure with Spellbinders

Hi friends! I hope you all had a great week! Do you have any fun plans for this weekend? We are getting ready for a charity trivia night! I doubt we'll win, but we're looking forward to fun evening together with friends.

I have a card to share with you today that features the Adventure Time Snapshot Etched Dies from Spellbinders. These dies are part of the Scenic Snapshots Collection.


I used a bunch of Lawn Fawn cardstock to create this card including Noble Fir, Blue Jay, Narwhal, Chocolate Bar, and Pixie Dust sparkle cardstock for the snow capped mountains. The sky is spritzed with some Liquid Stardust and the grass has flecks of black ink. To add some extra dimension, I added the pine trees to the scene with foam tape. Here's a closer look at the scene:


I hope this inspires you to create some fun adventure cards! My sons favorite part is that little campfire and I really like those tiny stars.

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

Mighty Hands Inspiration Week - Kings and Priests and Handwritten Alpha

Hi friends! It's the last day of the Mighty Hands Inspiration Week! I have a sweet card to share with you today that uses the new Kings and Priests and Handwritten Alpha stamp sets!


The images in the Kings and Priests set is so cute. My daughter really likes the princess image, so I figured it was the perfect image to use for her birthday card! I created the scene by using a cloud stencil to ink blend the sky and added the grass by die cutting cardstock with the Simple Grassy Hillsides by Lawn Fawn. I added the princess in the middle with foam tape, and I also added the dove from the Peace Words set, a few grass pieces from the Bold As A Lion stamp set, and a few small hearts stamped in pink ink.

The white frame around the scene is from Lawn Fawn's Foursquare Backdrop die - I created it by cutting out the inside frame! I used the Handwritten Alpha set to stamp my daughter's name along the bottom and I added a sentiment from the You Words stamp set. This turned out so sweet and my daughter loves her card!

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

Mighty Hands Inspiration Week - Bold As A Lion

Good evening! It's Day 4 of the Might Hands Inspiration Week and I have a card to share today that features the Bold As A Lion stamp set!


I created a grassy scene for the lions to play in by die cutting green cardstock with the Simple Grassy Hillsides die from Lawn Fawn. The images are all stamped with black ink, colored with Copic markers, and attached with foam tape. I stamped a few leaves and hearts in the background, as well as the sentiment. I finished the card by adding a white frame around the scene and adding a few leaves along the top. Here's another look of the card to show the dimension:

Mighty Hands Inspiration Week - Good Gift and Peace Words

Hello again! I have two cards to share with you today that feature products from the new Mighty Hands release!

My first card features the new Good Gift stamp set. This set is so cute and it would be perfect to create a new baby card!


To create my card, I started by using a cloud stencil and ink blending a light blue cloudy sky. I used Lawn Fawn's Rose Gold embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment in the lower left corner. I stamped the child and balloon onto white cardstock, colored the image with Copic markers, and fussy cut the image out. I attached the image with foam tape, and them stamped a few birds in the sky. I also stamped a few small hearts in pink ink from a Lawn Fawn stamp set that I had in my stash.

My second card showcases the Peace Words stamp set. I like the big, scripty "peace" and how it can work with the smaller sentiments included in the set.


I started with a piece of purple paper from Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes paper pack and die cut it with the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames die.  I kept the frame with the dark side up, but I flipped the inside rectangle over so that the lighter paper was inside the frame. Then, I stamped the "peace" in purple ink, and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment on black cardstock. I attached the black cardstock and the dove with foam tape, and I also used foam tape to pop up the frame. This would be so cute to recreate in a variety of colors!

Mighty Hands Inspiration Week - Children of God

Hi friends! I'm back again today with another card to share featuring products from the new Mighty Hands release! Today, I am sharing a card that uses the Children of God stamp set.


Our faith in Jesus makes us all children of God! To create this card, I started by stamping the children in black ink, coloring them with Copic markers, and cutting out the images. The background was created by adhering a piece of Purple Posies patterned paper from Lawn Fawn to a white card base. I cut a panel from white cardstock with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle die and taped that to the patterned paper. Then, I stamped the sentiment in black ink, attached the children with foam tape, and glued a few sequins to fill in the white space. How cute are those children?!

Fall Birds with Hello Bluebird

Hi everyone! I hope that you're all having a great day so far. I have a card to share with you that features a few products from Hello Bluebird!


Hello Bluebird hosts a monthly challenge on Instagram, and the challenge this month was to create a card showing what we love about fall! My favorite part about fall is the beautiful leaves and cooler weather. I decided to use the Silly Birds stamp set to create my fall card. I love how versatile this set is - it can be used to create any season of card!


I stamped the birds in black ink and colored them with Copic markers in shades of brown. I used reds, oranges, and browns for the leaves and I also added a few pink hearts. The background is created by ink blended with distress oxide inks - Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick, and Wild Honey. I also flicked some black ink to the background for some extra detail. The sentiment is die cut with the Hello Friend Words die in gold sparkle cardstock and the hello from the Silly Birds set is white heat embossed onto black cardstock.


I really like how this card turned out and I can't wait to send it to a friend this fall! Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you all have a great week! :)

Mighty Hands Inspiration Week - Good News

Hi friends! I hope that you all had a great weekend! I enjoyed some craft time with my sister-in-law and also a corn maze with the youth group from church. It was a little wet, but we all had a great time!

I'm so excited to be guest designing with Mighty Hands this week! Mighty Hands is a family-run company in Singapore that creates Christian clear stamps with a mission to share God's love. I have a bunch of inspiration to share with you that features their new release which is perfect for Christmas. 

My card today features the Good News stamp set! This set is so cute and helps to focus on the true meaning of Christmas - Jesus. 


I started by stamping the images onto Neenah 80 lb. cardstock in Lawn Fawn's Jet Black ink, coloring the images with Copic markers, and fussy cutting the images. Then, I started working on the background. I used a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock die cut with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackable die. I used different shades of Lawn Fawn's blue inks to ink blend the sky. Then, I used white paint and flicked it onto the background with a paint brush. While that dried, I die cut another piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with the rectangle die and the Simple Grassy Hillsides die. Then, I used green ink to ink blend the grass. I used double sided tape to attach the grass to the sky, and then attached that cardstock panel to a white card base. Finally, I used glue and foam tape to add the images to the scene. I really like that speech bubble for the angel! Here's a closer look at the card:


There's an Instagram hop today that features more inspiration from the Mighty Hands design team, so stop by my Instagram page to see the list of participants. And there's a chance to win a $25 gift card on the Mighty Hands Instagram page!

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

LF Inspiration Week: Just Stitching Double Circles

Hi friends! I have a fun card to share with you that features the Just Stitching Double Circle dies from Lawn Fawn!


I started by using the stitching circle dies to add three overlapping circles on a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. Then, I used a circle stackables die to diecut the negative of the three different sized circles and I used the negative piece of a stencil. I placed the stencil that I created over the circle and ink blended with distress oxide inks. I used Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, and Fossilized Amber inks. Where the circles overlapped, they created purple, green, and orange! I spritzed the paper with water to react with the ink. The panel was attached to a white card base and I finished the card by adding a few stars and a sentiment cut from the Scripty Hello die and from the Toadally Awesome stamp set.


Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you all have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Winter Wavy Sayings

Hi there! I have a fun set of Christmas tags to share with you that feature the Winter Wavy Sayings stamp set from Lawn Fawn!


I created the Christmas tags with the Build-A-House and Build-A-House Christmas Add-on dies! I used brown, green, and red cardstocks to create the house. The lights were cut from white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. For the windows, I stamped the images from the Tiny Christmas stamp set and Christmas Dreams stamp set for the tree. The images in the windows are all colored with Copic markers as well. After the houses were assembled, I added the sentiment by die cutting a Simple Wavy Banner with black cardstock and white heat embossing the sentiment. I finished the tags by using a hole punch to add a hole and tying twine at the top.

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

LF Inspiration Week: Shadow Box Card Mountain Add-On

Hi everyone! I have another card to share that was featured during Lawn Fawn's October Inspiration Week! This card features the Shadow Box Card Mountain Add-On die. 


The die works great with the Shadow Box Card die, but you can also use it on its own, or with the Center Picture Window Card die. I ink blended a night sky with distress oxide inks. I added the mountains cut from Dolphin cardstock and the trees cut from Noble Fir cardstock.

For the center picture window, I used acetate to make the scene see through! It was a little tricky to adhere, but it looks really neat! The inside scene features the yeti from Yeti or Not.


Thanks for visiting! Have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Winter Narwhal

Hi friends! I have a card to share with you that was featured during Lawn Fawn's October Inspiration Week! This card features the adorable Winter Narwhal!


I started by ink blending on a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. I used green, purple, and blue ink from Lawn Fawn to create a soft glow from the Northern lights. Then, I splattered some white ink to add some extra details. I die cut a hillside from Pixie Dust cardstock and added a few trees behind it.  The water was created with the Pearlescent Vellum and I used the Ocean Wave Accents die to create a place for the narwhal to swim! I added a few friends to the scene from the Beary Happy Holidays set and placed them on the ice from the Critters in the Arctic set. I finished the card by adding a white border and the sentiment heat embossed in white on a black cardstock banner. Oh, and I added a few stars in the sky!

LF Inspiration Week: How You Bean? Christmas Cookie Add-On

Good morning, friends! It's time for the October Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!


Today, we are sharing inspiration that features the How You Bean? Christmas Cookie Add-On set. It is designed to work with the How You Bean? stamp and die set, but it can also be used on its own.


I added the cookies to the jar and added a few cookies around it to fill the card. I added the Scripty Sweet die cut from Rainforest cardstock to the sentiment that is included in the cookie add-on set. I also used the Snow Day Remix patterned paper for the background and finished by adding an Orchid colored twine bow at the top of the jar. We hand out cookies or some sort of snack to our neighbors every December, and this card will be perfect to include with the cookies!


There's more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog and there's a chance to win a prize, too!

Lawn Fawn & Hero Arts Blog Hop (Plus a giveaway!)

Hi friends! I'm so excited to be sharing a card with you today that features the new Partners set from Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn!


Hero Arts is celebrating 45 years in the crafting industry, and to help them celebrate, Lawn Fawn designed this adorable set called Big ThanksIsn't it so cute?! You can find the stamp and die set at the Hero Arts store.


To create my cards, I started by stamping the images onto Bristol Smooth 80lb cardstock with Lawn Fawn's Jet Black ink. That ink is perfect to use with Copic markers! I colored all of my images with Copic markers, and used the coordinating die cuts to cut them out.


To create the background scene, I cut white cardstock with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackable die along with the Grassy Border and Stitched Hillside Borders.


After the backgrounds were cut out, I ink blended the cardstock with different Lawn Fawn inks including, Mermaid, Cilantro, Freshly Cut Grass, Doe, and Pizza Crust. I also used a few distress oxide inks mixed with water to flick some color to the backgrounds.


I used the A Birdie Told Me stamp set and stamped the sentiment inside a speech bubble to make it stand out against the scene. And because it's so cute to make it look like animals are talking, haha! I also stamped the "thanks" and "thank you" sentiments slightly offset with Guava ink.

LF Inspiration Week: Offset Sayings: Christmas

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


The Lawn Fawn design team is sharing projects today that feature the Offset Sayings: Christmas stamp set. This new set is so neat and there are so many fun ways to use this set! I used this set to create a fun, rainbow colored Christmas card!


I used a whole bunch of Lawn Fawn inks - a dark shade and light shade for each color. You really can't go wrong in the colors that you choose! I started with a piece of white cardstock and I began stamping the sentiment by starting in the middle. I stamped it at an angle, and then used that middle row as my reference for the other rows. It's definitely not perfect, but I love how it turned out! I first stamped the dark outline sentiment, and then went back and stamped the inside colors once all of the outlines were done.

Since the background is so busy, I made the sentiments simple by white heat embossing them onto black cardstock so that they popped against the background. I also added a few clear sequins around the sentiment for some extra detail. This card took a little bit of time with all of the stamping, but it turned out so neat! 


Make sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration with this stamp set! Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your sweet comments this week! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Yeti or Not

Hi friends! Yeti or not, the Lawn Fawn Inspiration continues today with a look at another new Christmas stamp set, hehe!


We're sharing projects today that feature the adorable Yeti Or Not stamp set. Aren't those yetis so cute?! The yeti, along with the hearts, present, hat and scarf, are stamped in black ink and colored with Copic markers.


To create the background, I cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than my card base, and used the Shadow Box Card Mountain Add-On die to cut an opening in the cardstock panel. I added a piece of ink blended cardstock behind the panel, and I also flicked on some Liquid Stardust mixed with water. It's hard to tell in the picture, but it's so pretty in person! I also die cut the trees, ink blended them, and attached them to the cardstock panel. I stamped the sentiment in black ink, then I attached the white panel and yeti with foam tape. I finished the card by adding a twine bow along the top. Here's a closer look at the card:


This card turned out so cute and it would be great to mass produce for winter birthdays!

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

LF Inspiration Week: Foursquare Backdrop

Good morning friends! Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues with a look at the Foursquare Backdrop die!


This die is so fun and is great to use to create smaller scenes on cards. To create this card, I used images from the Ho-Ho-Holidays and Holiday Helpers stamp sets. The first scene is Mrs. Claus getting Santa fed for his long trip (haha!), then the elves are handing off the gifts that they worked on, the gifts then get passed to Santa to check off of his list, and then Santa flies away to deliver the gifts. 


The sentiment was created by white heat embossing onto black cardstock and die cut with the Everyday Sentiment Banner. The outline of the foursquare backdrop and the sentiment are attached with foam tape and the rest of the images are attached with glue. For the background, I ink blended a blue sky with Faded Jean and Broken China distress oxide inks, stamped a few snowflakes with the Faked Jean ink, and added a snowy hill cut with the Stitched Hillside Border die. 


Thanks for stopping by today! There's more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog and you can enter to win some new goodies, so make sure you check it out. I hope you have a great day!

The background is created by ink blending with Lawn Fawn's Mermaid and Fish Tank ink. The sand is die cut with the Stitched Hillside Borders and ink blended with Doe ink.

The sentiment is created with Bannertastic banners and Riley's ABCs. I also used the Say What? Christmas Critters set for the "sending Christmas" part of the sentiment. I finished the card by stamping a few air bubbles in the background. Here's a closer look at the card:
