LF Inspiration Week: Perfectly Plaid Chill Collection

Hi there! I hope that you all have a nice weekend! We enjoyed some family time at a local fall festival and also enjoyed a corn maze with our youth group!


Today, the Lawn Fawn design team is sharing projects that feature the Perfectly Plaid Chill Collection! I have two projects to share with you today. The first project is this gift tag set that features the Tag, You're It dies and the Beary Happy Holidays set. These tags are quick and easy to create, but are so cute to add to gifts!


I also created this name banner for a friend who recently had a little boy!


This banner features the Stitched Party Banners, Louie's ABCs die, and the Plane and Simple stamp set. I really like how the name stands out against the patterned paper when it's cut from black cardstock!


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

LF Inspiration Week: Stitched Hillside Backdrop

Hello again! The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Stitched Hillside Backdrop dies!


These dies are awesome because they make scene building so easy! For my card, I used the portrait hillside, along with the Stitched Mountain Border, Everyday Sentiment Banner dies, Sealed With a Kiss set, and Watercolor Wishes paper.


To create the water, I masked off the second hillside and ink blended Broken China distress oxide ink over top of the die cut. You could also use the Stitched Hillside die and die cut the bottom hillside from patterned paper! I also really like the cute house and trees that are included in this backdrop set!


Thanks so much for stopping by! There's more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog, and I'll be back again tomorrow with some other fun projects! Have a great day! :)

Sunny Studio Guest Designer

*This is my second post of the day. To view my Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week post, continue scrolling or click here. :)

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be a guest designer for the Sunny Studio blog! They have some adorable sets that are perfect for Christmas, and I was so excited to be able to play with a few of their products!


These cards feature images from the Christmas Home, Christmas Chapel, and Festive Greetings. The houses and chapel are so cute, and I really like the little details, like the Christmas tree in the window! The trees, snowman, and lamppost are perfect to help create cute, winter scenes!


To create these cards, I die cut a panel from white cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die. Then, I used blue inks to create an ink blended sky, and I left the bottom part white for the snow. The sentiments are heat embossed with gold embossing power. I think those big, scripty sentiments are my favorite!


I finished by attaching the images, which are colored with Copic markers, and adding clear stickles to the snow on the trees, house, and chapel. I really like how these cards turned out!

Thank you so much, Mendi, for allowing me to be a guest designer for Sunny Studios! Check out the their blog for lots of inspiration from their amazing design team! :)

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

LF Inspiration Week: Winter Otter

 Hi there! I hope that you had a great week! Today, my husband and I are taking our church youth group to an annual corn maze in our area! We go every year and it's one of our favorite events with the youth! Do you have anything fun planned for this weekend?


The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues, and I'm sharing Christmas tags that feature the Winter Otter set.


I die cut the tags from white cardstock with the Stitched Circle Tags. Then, I ink blended the tags with Broken China distress oxide ink and spritzed it with water. The otters are colored with Copic markers, and I added glossy accents to the candy canes to give them some shine! I finished the tags by stamping the sentiments in black ink, attaching the otters with foam tape, and tying twine to the tags. Here's a close up on the tags:

LF Inspiration Week: Stitched Ornaments

Hi there! It's the start of the October Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! Yay!


Today, the design team is sharing projects that feature the Stitched Ornament dies. I used the dies to great Christmas tags. For the first set of Christmas tags, I used different shades of blue and purple ink to create a galaxy sky ornaments. They look so neat in person! I also heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing power onto black cardstock and attached the sentiments with foam tape.


I also created another set of tags by creating a watercolored background. These tags would also be cute on patterned paper! 


The design team has some awesome projects on the Lawn Fawn blog, so check them! Thanks for stopping by and I'll have more projects to share tomorrow! :)

Lawn Fawn & Scrapbook Adhesives

 Hi everyone! I hope that you're having a good week so far. It has been so hot here lately! The cooler fall weather better be getting here soon! :)


This week, Lawn Fawn is teaming up with Scrapbook Adhesives - they have lots of great adhesive products! For my card, I used the Christmas Dreams set, along with the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle.


I used the 3D Foam Squares to attach most of the items, as well as the scalloped border. The bow and the small items on the fireplace are attached with the Dodz Mini, and the fireplace was attached with the E-Z Runner Permanent tape runner. I used a blending tool with Doe and Peachy Keen ink to create an ink blended background.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Scalloped Treat Box Winter House Add-On Dies

Good morning everyone! It's the last day of the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week and today I am sharing a project that features the Scalloped Treat Box Winter House Add-On dies! These dies ares so cute to add onto the Scalloped Treat Box, but they can also be used on their own. I used the dies to create a mini card set!


I used quite a bit of Lawn Fawn cardstock - Ballet Slipper, Cilantro, Mermaid, Narwhal, Noble Fir, Raspberry, and Sticky Note. The brick stamp was a freebie that I received from an online stamp order so I'm not sure who made the stamp. I have seen other brick stamps and I have seen brick stencils sold online that would be great to use to recreate this card, too!


This would be such a cute gift to share with your neighbors!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! And thank you so much for all of your sweet comments this week! I hope you all have a great week! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Christmas Dreams

Hello! I'm back again to share another card with you for the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! Today the design team is sharing projects that feature the Christmas Dreams set.

I started by stamping the images on white cardstock, coloring with Copic markers, and die cutting with the coordinating dies. I took a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than the card base, and used the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circle die to create a window to frame the scene. 


I used Mermaid and Doe ink to create a simple ink blended background, and then I attached the images with foam tape. I also used foam tape to attach the white cardstock panel. I really like how simple and cute this card turned out! Here is a close up:


Thank you so much for visiting today! Check out the rest of the projects from the design team on the Lawn Fawn blog! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Large Wreath

Hi there! I hope that you all had a great weekend! I was able to spend some one-on-one time with my one year old while my three year old spent some time with her grandparents! It was a lot quieter at home this weekend, haha!

The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Large Wreath die and the Knit Picky Paper Collection. For this card, I used the Noble Fir cardstock for the wreath, Raspberry cardstock for the berries, and gold glitter paper that I had in my paper stash. To create this wreath, I arranged five wreath branches around the sentiment, and then arranged five more branches on top and over lapped where the branches met. Then, I added the berries and wreath.


I also used the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Square for the white cardstock panel and the sentiment is from the Merry Messages set. I finished the card by adding some stickles to the berries. Here is a close up of the card:


There's a lot more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog, so check it! And there's more inspiration coming tomorrow! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Winter Village

Good morning! There is more inspiration to share with you today, yay! Today, the Lawn Fawn design team is sharing projects that feature the Winter Village set.

The houses in this set are so cute and perfect to create winter scenes! I also really like that a few of the houses do not have snow on top, so they can be used year round.

For this scene, I cut a piece of white cardstock with the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die and inked the top part with Mermaid and Blue Jay ink to create a night sky. The images are colored with Copic markers and I used a piece of patterned paper from the Perfectly Plaid Chill collection to create a sleeve to keep the card close. When you slide off the sleeve...


... a winter village pops up! I used the Stitched Hillside Pop-Up and attached the houses and trees with glue and foam tape. My favorite part is the lights and that decorated Christmas tree near the church. I also added a Bannertastic banner (I think I might be obsessed with that banner set) in the sky and colored it with red Copic markers. I can't wait to send this card to someone this Christmas season!


There is a lot more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog, so check it out. There is also a giveaway over there, too!

Thanks for visiting! I'll be back tomorrow with more inspiration! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Celebration Countdown

Hi everyone! Do you have any thing fun planned for the weekend? Our weeks are always so busy, so we'll probably just relax - and maybe go shopping. :)

The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues with a look at the Celebration Countdown set. This set works great with the Tiny Box die, but it can also be used for birthday cards!


I used the Celebration Countdown die to cut balloons from different colors of Lawn Fawn cardstock. For the sentiment, I used the Scripty Happy die with three layers of black cardstock, and I used white embossing powder for the birthday. To add some texture and dimension, I attached silver sparkle Lawn Trimmings to the balloons. The end of the string is wrapped around the bottom on the white panel and attached with washi tape on the back.


I hope that you have a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by! I still have more inspiration to share with you over the next few days, so stop by again tomorrow! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Beary Happy Holidays

Good morning! I hope that you're week is going well so far! The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Beary Happy Holidays set.

I started by ink blending a piece of white cardstock with Mermaid and Blue Jay ink. The sentiment was then embossed with white embossing powder and I also added a hillside cut from the Stitched Hillside Border dies. I added a piece of patterned paper from the Let's Polka in the Meadow collection cut from the Scalloped Rectangle dies.


 The images were stamped and colored with Copic markers and attached with foam tape. And the rest of the sentiment was stamped inside a banner from the Bannertastic set, and also attached with foam tape.


Check out the rest of the design team inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day! :)

LF Inspiration Week: Here We Go A-Waddling

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a card for the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! There will be giveaways on the Lawn Fawn blog this week, along with a lot of new inspiration from the design team. 

Today, we are sharing projects that feature the Here We Go A-Waddling set. Those penguins are so cute, and I really like the punny sentiments! To create this card, I used the Snow Cool set and white embossing powder, along with a little bit of Mermaid ink blended along the edge of a piece of blue cardstock, to create the background.


 I also used the Stitched Hillside Backdrop to create the snowy hills (that die makes scene building so easy!). The images are all colored with Copic markers, and the Christmas tree is from the Christmas Dreams set. The penguins and Christmas tree are attached with foam tape. I finished the card by stamping the sentiment and music notes in black ink. Here is a close up on the scene:

Good morning! Today, the Lawn Fawn design team is sharing different projects, including projects that use the new Shut The Front Door die.


First of all, that is an awesome name for a die! And secondly, look how cool it looks when you create a door!!


Ah, this die is awesome! I can't wait to make more new house cards, Christmas cards with carolers, birthday cards - there are just so many ideas for this die!

For my card, I used the die, along with the Fall Tiny Tags (for the bushes), Bannertastic stamp and die, the "welcome" from Little Bundle, the new Knock On Wood patterned paper, Ballet Slipper ink (for the hearts) and Noble Fir, Cilantro, and Storm Cloud cardstock. This is what the door says on the inside:

LF Inspiration Week: Forest Feast and Birch Trees

Hi everyone! Were you able to see the ecplise yesterday from where you were located? There was a thunderstorm right when it was starting in my area, but we were able to catch a glimpse when there was a break in the clouds. It wasn't a total ecplise where I  was at, but it was still really neat to see. Isn't it so cool how God arranged the sun and moon to line up perfectly?!

Anyways, today the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues with a look at the Forest Feast set and Birch Trees dies.


These are the cards that were included in my Gift Box set that I shared a few days ago (you can see the gift box here). The cards match the cover on the gift box, but have different critters and images in the scenes.


Each of these cards use the Stitched Hillside Border and the new Outside In Stitched Scalloped Stackables die.


The sentiment is cut from Ballet Slipper cardstock with the Everyday Sentiment Banners. To create the sentiment, I selectively stamped the words from the Forest Feast sentiment to make them fit on the banner.


The background is created by inking white cardstock with Mermaid, Merman, Freshly Cut Grass, and Jalapeno inks.


Here is another card that I shared a few weeks ago during the Lawn Fawn sneak week. You can find out the details of this card here. I think this is my favorite card from the entire week!


There are a lot more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog, and there is also a chance to win this adorable set, so go and enter! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day! :)
