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!

LF Inspiration Week: Christmas Fishes

Hi everyone!! I hope your weekend is going well! The Lawn Fawn design team is sharing projects today that feature the Christmas Fishes stamp set!


I created this card by stamping, coloring, and die cutting a bunch of images from the Christmas Fishes stamp set. How cute is the seaweed tree?!


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:

LF Inspiration Week: Snow Globe Gift Tag

Hi friends! I hope you're all having a great week! I have some Christmas tags to share with you that feature the Snow Globe Gift Tag die set!


I used the die set, along with the Christmas Fishes stamp set, to create these underwater Christmas tags. The backgrounds and sand is ink blended with Distress Oxide inks, and the images are colored with Copic markers. I used the Silver Sparkle Lawn Trimmings to add twine at the top of the tag. I also added a few accents to the bottom of the snow globe with images from the Mermaid For You and Manatee-rific stamp sets.


Thanks for visiting and check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration! Have a great weekend!

LF Inspiration Week: Ho-Ho-Holidays

Hi everyone! Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Ho-Ho-Holidays set.


I created a slim line card that measured 3 1/2" by 8 1/2". I created a white card base and cut a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock that was slightly smaller than the card base. I used Broken China and Faded Jean distress oxide inks to create the background.  I also flicked the background with white ink mixed with the Liquid Stardust for some extra sparkle.


The images are stamped with black ink and colored with Copic markers. I added a red nose to the first reindeer to make it Rudolph! The sentiment is white heat embossed in the sky, and I also added a bunch of stars from the Spooky Village stamp set. Here's a closer look at Rudolph and that sparkly background:

LF Inspiration Week: Mice on Ice and Stitched Pond

Good morning friends! It's time for the September Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! This week, we will be sharing inspiration featuring more of the products that were released in August.


Today, we are sharing projects that feature the Mice On Ice stamp set and the Stitched Pond die.


I cut the pond from the Pearlescent Vellum and lightly inked the edges with blue ink. It's so pretty in person! I used the Stitched Hillside Borders to create the snowy hills and I added a bunch of trees colored with Copic markers. The background is ink blended with Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks. Here's a close look at the card:


I also created a second card that uses the same sets, but I used the Snow Day Remix patterned paper for the sky and border. I think those two mice are so cute holding hands!


To create the border, I used the two largest Stitched Square Stackables die, but you could also use the Stitched Square Frames die. Here's a closer look at this card:


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration and I'll be back again tomorrow with more inspiration to share with you! Have a great day! :)

Snow Bunnies STAMPtember Exclusive

Hi everyone! Are you excited to see the Lawn Fawn exclusive STAMPtember set at Simon Says Stamp!? Here's a look at the Snow Bunnies stamp set!


This set is so adorable! It is only available at Simon Says Stamp while supplies last, so if you like this set, make sure that you place your order as soon as possible!! The Lawn Fawn STAMPtember set usually sells out fast!


These bunnies are so cute, and they are ready for winter! My favorite bunny is the one with the floppy ears! 


I couldn't make just one card with this set, so I created a card trio! The backgrounds are all created by using white embossing powder and heat embossing the falling snow from the Snowy Backdrops stamp set. That's my favorite background set to use for winter cards! Then, I ink blended the background with tumbled glass and broken china distress oxide inks. Then, I used the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables to add the stitching detail around the edge.


The hillsides are created from white cardstock cut with the Stitched Hillside Borders die. Once the scenes were created, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut a bunch of bunnies, trees, and carrots. And of course an adorable snow bunny! How cute is that snow bunny with his snow ball tail?!


I added the images with foam tape or liquid glue (most of the trees are attached with glue). Then, I white heat embossed the different sentiments onto black cardstock, cut them out, and attached them with foam tape. I finished the cards by stamping a few hearts in Wild Rose ink.


There's more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog. Don't forget to order this exclusive STAMPtember set before it sells out!!

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

LF Inspiration Week: Plan On It: School

Good morning friends! Did you place your order for the new Lawn Fawn products that are now available? I can't wait to see what everyone creates!

The Lawn Fawn design team is back again today to share projects with you that feature the Plan On It: School stamp set. My daughter starts kindergarten on Monday (how is that possible?!) and so I used the images from the planner set to create a card for her first day of school!


I used the owls from the So Owlsome stamp set and gave them a bunch of school images to hold. The small images in the planner sets are perfect to pair with the critters! The sentiment is created with the words from the plan on it set, the Bannertastic stamp set, and Smitty's ABC's. I arranged the images on a piece of white cardstock cut from the second largest Outside In Stitched Rectangle die and layered that on a piece of Fall Fling patterned paper cut from the largerest Outside In Stitched Rectangle die. Here's a closer look at the card:


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great weekend! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Tiny Gift Box Peacock

Hi friends! The Lawn Fawn release week continues today with a look at the new Tiny Gift Box Peacock and Turkey Add-On die.


This die works with the Tiny Gift box and can be made into a peacock or a turkey. I love that you can get two different looks with the same die! I used the die today to create a peacock.


I used a variety of Lawn Fawn cardstocks to create the peacock including Blue Jay, Peacock, Cilantro, Ballet Slipper, Fake Tan, and Sunflower. It's a little tedious to put all of the little pieces together, but it's pretty straightforward. My favorite part of this die is that the box opens when you pull on the center feather. So cute! 


Thanks for visiting this week and for all of your sweet comments! All of the new products will be available tomorrow, August 22nd! I can't wait to see what everyone makes with the new goodies! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Trees Before 'n Afters

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great week! :)


This card was shared on the Lawn Fawn blog and on the Whimsipost social media pages yesterday (Facebook and Instagram), but I forgot to share it on my blog. Opps! So here are the details on this card:


This card features the new Trees Before n' Afters stamp set! This set includes four different trees - one for each season of the year! I started by stamping and coloring each of the trees and different accessories with Jet Black ink and coloring them with Copic markers. I die cut the images and set them aside while I worked on the background. 

The background features the new Foursquare Backdrop die cut from Storm Cloud cardstock. I also used the backdrop die and cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended each of the rectangles with distress oxide inks. I created a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardbase, attached the outline from the backdrop die, and then attached the inside rectangles into the backdrop die. I stamped the season names on each of the rectangles, and then glued the trees and accessories into place. To finish, I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock, die cut it with Everyday Sentiment Banners, and attached it with foam tape.

LF Inspiration Week: Outside In Stitched Pumpkins and Stitched Pumpkin Frames

Good morning everyone! Did you have a good weekend? We have one week left of summer here - where did the summer go?! 

The Lawn Fawn Release Week continues today with a look at the Outside In Stitched Pumpkins and Stitched Pumpkin Frames.


I used orange, green, black, and kraft cardstock from Lawn Fawn to create the pumpkin. Then, I attached the pumpkin to the new Gold Rush cardstock (it's so pretty!). I used Finley's ABCs die cut from orange cardstock for the sentiment. And the sentiment that is white heat embossed on black cardstock is from the Pick of the Patch stamp set.


Stop by again tomorrow for more inspiration! Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Build-A-House and Tiny Halloween

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying the inspiration this week for the Lawn Fawn Release Week. Inspiration continues today with a look at the Build-A-House die!


This die is so fun! And this house die would be fun to use for shaped cards, too! For my cards today, I used a variety of Lawn Fawn cardstocks to create two new home cards. 


I created two similar houses and placed them in different scenes. For the first card, I used the Birch Tree and Simple Grassy Hillsides die to create the scene. I also used the Scripty Congrats die for the sentiment, along with the Extra Sentiment Banner die and Happy Village stamp set.


The second card features the same house in a different color, but in a different background scene as well. For this card, I used the Stitched Hillside Backdrop, Little Picket Fence Border, and Leafy Tree Backdrop die.


I also have another card to share with you that features the new Tiny Halloween stamp set. This set is sized to perfectly fit inside the upstairs window of the house die, but it can also be used on it's own.


I used the Bannertastic stamp set and Riley's ABCs to create a custom sentiment. The background is lightly ink blended with purple ink in the middle and then splattered with black and orange ink for some extra details. I added the sentiment, and then added the images from the Tiny Halloween set around the banner. The speech bubbles are from the Hay There and Be Hap-pea stamp sets. Here's a closer look at this fa-boo-lous card:


I hope you like the cards! Thanks so much for visiting and make sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Fortune Teller Tabby

Good morning friends! I hope you are enjoying the inspiration from the Lawn Fawn Release Week! We still have lots of more inspiration to share with you before the new products become available on August 22nd.


Today, we are sharing projects that feature the Fortune Teller Tabby set. I stamped the kitty, along with the cats from the Say What? Pets and Keep On Swimming sets, colored them with Copic markers, and die cut them with the coordinating dies.


The background was created by ink blended purple distress oxide inks onto Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then, I used the new Liquid Stardust mixed with water, and flicked it onto the background with a paint brush. The picture doesn't capture how pretty and sparkly the background is! It's sooo pretty!! I finished the background by adding a floor cut from the Woodgrain cardstock and trim cut from Storm Cloud cardstock. I also added some sequins to the background and tied a bow along the top with the new Eggplant Lawn Trimmings. Here's a closer look at the background:


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

LF Inspiration Week: Flippin' Awesome

Hi friends! I hope you're all having a good week so far! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? We're just going to relax at home and enjoy the last few days before the craziness of the school year starts!


Anyways, the Lawn Fawn Release Week continues today with a look at the new interactive die, Flippin' Awesome. This die is so fun and it's so easy to put together!


I used the new die to create a birthday card with the Hay There stamp set. I also added birthday gifts and party hats from the new Yeti Or Not. The hats are technically winter hats, but they work for party hats, too. The background is created with blue and green cardstock cut with the Grassy Border. I also used the banner die that is included in the Flippin' Awesome set to add the sentiment, which is white heat embossed onto Narwhal cardstock. Here's a look at the inside panel:


It's so much fun to slide the card back and forth. It slides so smoothly! Here's a look at each of the panels in the card:


It's so neat! Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration and to enter the giveaway. Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)
