LF Sneak Week - Some Bunny and Stitched Garden Border

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

I have another card to share with you today that features the Stitched Garden Border die, which makes garden scenes so easy to create! The die includes the vegetables and also cuts the hillside and dirt mounds so that you can slide the vegetables into the dirt.

I also used the new Little Flowers dies and the Some Bunny stamp set, along with the Bannertastic set. This scene also uses a variety of Lawn Fawn cardstock, including the Paper Bag Cardstock for the ground.

Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more sneak peeks of the new products! Which one (or ones) is your favorite?

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day! :)

LF Sneak Week - Peekaboo Backdrop

Good morning! I hope that you're enjoying the sneak peeks on the Lawn Fawn blog this week. Which products are your favorite so far?

I have a card to share with you today that features the new Peekaboo Backdrop die. This die creates an awesome border to help create comic book style scenes, and it also includes some fun, interactive elements!

I used the Peekaboo Backdrop along with the Hay There stamp set to create this fun card! The background is created with Distress Oxide inks - Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Fossilized Amber, and Twisted Citron. The critters are colored with Copic markers. They look so cute with their googly eyes!

This card also features the new Speech Bubble die with the sentiment stamped in Riley's ABCs. I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the inside of the card, but it says "It's your special day! Happy Birthday."

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

LF Sneak Week - Happy Village and Hay There

Hi everyone! I hope that you had a nice weekend! We went from really nice weather on Friday (the kids and I went for a walk in sweatshirts!) to ice and snow on Saturday. Not cool, January!

This week, Lawn Fawn will be sharing sneak peeks at the new products that will be showcased at Creativation! The new products will be available in February!

There are so many cute stamp sets that are being shared on the Lawn Fawn blog, and I have two cards to share with you today! The first card features the new Happy Village set, which is a spring version of the Winter Village set.

I used the Stitched Hillside Backdrop cut from white cardstock to create the scene. The hillside is ink blended with Freshly Cut Grass and the sky is inked with Mermaid ink. The houses and trees are all colored with Copic markers and attached with foam tape. I really like the little speech bubbles that are included in this set, as well as those moving boxes!

My second card features the Hay There stamp and die set. Those farm critters are so cute! The animals are all stamped in black ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I also used a sentiment from the new Simple Sentiments stamp set.

The blue patterned paper is from the new Gotta Have Gingham collection, which is one of my new favorite paper collections. Here is a close up on the card:

There are so many cute samples on the Lawn Fawn blog, so check them out! And I'll have more cards to share with you throughout the week! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! :)

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:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration and for a chance to win some goodies! :)
