Lawn Fawn Black Friday Special

Hi friends! I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving this year! There are so many things that we all have to be thankful for! :)

To help kick off your Christmas shopping, Lawn Fawn is offering this adorable mini set featuring a sleeping sloth for Black Friday! This special set is available at the Lawn Fawn store while supplies last. Orders over $35 will receive the free stamp set, and orders over $60 will receive the coordinating dies. Plus, shipping is free on all U.S. orders! Yay!

How cute is the sloth!? 

I used the Woodgrain cardstock and die cut it with the Outside In Stitched Rectangles and Outside In Stitched Circle dies to create the front panel. I used Broken China and Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks to ink blend a sky behind the circle. I added the sloth with foam tape in the circle and stamped the "zzzz..." above his head. I also used the Flower Power die to create the leaves above the sloth. The leaves could also be created with the Stitched Leaves or Stitched Flower Frame. I finished the card by adding the sentiment below the circle by white heat embossing the sentiment onto black cardstock and attaching it with foam tape. Here's a closer look at the card:

Make sure to place your order at the Lawn Fawn store before this set sells out!

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

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi friends! I'm excited to be sharing a Christmas tag with you today for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags from Tracey McNeely! Check out her blog for all of the information and for a chance to win a giveaway!

I created a fun set of Christmas tags using products from Lawn Fawn! The tags were created from the Say What? Gift Tags die and ink blended with distress oxide inks. I also used the Stitched Hillside Borders cut from Pixie Dust cardstock and attached it along the bottom edge of the tags. I used white embossing powder to emboss the sentiment from Tiny Tag Sayings stamp set. 

My favorite part of these tags is the little people inside the car! I first stamped the car from the Home For the Holidays stamp set. I created a mask for the car by stamping the car onto a sticky note and cutting out the windows of the car. Then, I placed the mask down and stamped the people and dog from the Tiny Christmas stamp set into the windows. They fit perfectly! I stamped the trees in Noble Fir ink and attached them to the top of the car. I finished by adding twine to the tags.

I hope these tags inspire you to create Christmas tags for your presents this year! Thanks so much for visiting today! :)

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!

Make sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more Christmas inspiration.

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! :)
