Lawn Fawn sneak peek week, day 3

Hi there!

Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn's sneak peek week! They're showing off their spring collection on the blog all week long, ahead of the big Creativation show in Phoenix this weekend! Everything shown this week will be available for purchase as of February 20th.

Today, we're showing off some new dies! I'm showing off the Magic Iris die, as well as the Meadow Backdrop: Portrait die.

Lawn Fawn sneak peek week, day 3


First up, the Magic Iris die. It is so cool! And, take it from someone who is very interactive card-challenge, it is an easy one to put together.

Above, you see what it looks like when it's closed. As you pull the tab down, magical things start happening:

The astronomer mouse is so cute, isn't it? Another must-have new set - it is so sweet! I curved the first part of the sentiment around the circle, and the rest of it is revealed as you continue to pull on the tab.

I die. I love it so much! I did the same kind of ink-blending on all of the layers, so that the night sky would be seamless. I flicked on some white paint onto each layer before adding all of the stamped star elements.

My next card features more mice! And the Meadow Backdrop die.

This card is so soft and subtle, and I think the little mouse blowing on the dandelion is the sweetest. I added the Stitched Windy Backdrop - I thought it added to the theme of dandelions blowing away! And I cut the Meadow Backdrop out of Spiffy Speckles patterned paper, but framed the whole thing in white to give it a bit of a pop.

Pretty Pink Posh birthday blog hop!

Hi there!

Pretty Pink Posh is turning 6 and I'm honored to be joining them on day 2 of this 3-day birthday blog hop!



I made 2 cards using items from the newest release! My first card features the Party Friends and Large Floral Hearts stamp sets.

Pretty Pink Posh birthday blog hop!


These images are adorable! I stamped and die-cut the heart frame and colored the flowers using copic markers. I then die-cut the same heart frame out of a striped patterned paper layer. To get the dimension that I wanted, I stacked 4-5 plain heart frame die-cuts and adhered them into the opening.

Pretty Pink Posh birthday blog hop!

I did some purple ink blending on the card-base and created dreamy, bokeh dots using a white gel pen. The mice complete the card, and are adhered with foam dots to give extra dimension.

My second card features a different critter from Party Friends, as well as a new coverplate: the Birthday Frame die.

Pretty Pink Posh birthday blog hop!


This card didn't photograph right, but it is my favorite! I started out by die-cutting the frame, and used copic markers to add color to the party elements. Then, I stamped out the lion using Lawn Fawn Crunchy Leaf ink and colored him in using copic markers. In real life, he is so soft and cute! I used a speckled paper as my base layer, which provided the perfect amount of interest to an otherwise simple card.

I hope you like them! Now, onto the fun part:

GIVEAWAY: Pretty Pink Posh is giving away 6 $50 gift certificates total during the three day celebration. Be sure to leave a comment along the blog hop stops each day for your chance to win!

I also used critters from Just Dandy and Really High Five, which were shown off yesterday. I love that the mouse at the bottom looks like he's whistling happy birthday! so cute! Another new product for today are the balloon dies! I layered a stitched balloon frame onto a sold balloon and stamped a circular greeting you'll see more of very soon!

Hi there!


Lawn Fawn's spring release is headed to the Creativation show in Phoenix later this week, but they're giving you a sneak peek at the new line all week long! All of these new products will be available for sale as of February 20th.

The first one features A Bug Deal:

Aren't they adorable?? I turned the branch vertical to create a twiggy home for a few bugs against a night sky.

I love the "sorry to bug you" sentiment!

My second card features Really High Five:

The jumping critters are too cute! I drew in little motion lines around each critter to emphasize how they might be wiggling in mid-air.

Just my type (Lawn Fawn new release!)

Hi there!

Hello and welcome to Lawn Fawn's Valentine release week! On December 12th, all new products will be available for purchase. Until then, enjoy a few days of new product reveals and inspiration!

Today, we're showing off Just My Type and Love Poems. I've used both on my first card:

You're just my type (Lawn Fawn new release!)

The love poems are flying out of the typewriter! I love the mouse looking up, and the other cutie peeking out over the typed heart!

These images are so fun to color. To give the desk a woodgrained look, I stamped it out and die-cut it from white cardstock. Then, I stamped it again onto woodgrain patterned paper and used scissors to cut it out. I added some shading using copic markers. I like doing that with my paper piecing to maintain the white, die-cut border around the image.

My next card really shows off the images from Love Poems:

You're just my type (Lawn Fawn new release!)


I did some ink blending on a base cardstock layer, leaving the center almost white. I flicked on some darker blue ink, as well as white ink, before arranging the mice into a grid pattern.

It's a simple design, but it makes me smile!

I hope you like what I created today, be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more mousy inspiration!

25 days of Christmas tags! with Lawn Fawn

Hi there!


I'm so happy to be joining Tracey McNeely's 25 days of Christmas tags, with Lawn Fawn sponsoring today's event.

I created a set of cozy cabin tags, using just dies for the most part:

25 days of Christmas tags (with Lawn Fawn!)

I used the Shadow Box Card Mountain Add-On for all of the die-cut elements on the tags. I cut the cabin, the trees and some mountains, and used copic markers to add little bits of shading to colored cardstock.

The black night sky (cut with the Snowy Backdrop die) really allowed the elements to pop.

I hope you like them! Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle new release blog hop!

Hi there!


I am so excited for you to check out the Avery Elle winter release! And what better way, than with a blog hop!


I have 2 projects to show off, using a new set that I illustrated for Avery Elle - Cupids!

Avery Elle new release blog hop!

I stamped out 2 of the cupids, a sweet little bird, and a slew of clouds, and placed them onto a piece of pink paper. I then framed out the images using a Wonky Scalloped Frame die.


Avery Elle new release blog hop!

The frame, the cupids, and the bird were propped up on foam adhesive squares, to give the card some dimension. To finish off, I used a white gel pen to add some bokeh dots to the pink sky.

When I designed this set, I really intended it to be used for class valentines! Most of the sentiments speak to friendship, and the whole thing works perfectly when paired with one of the the new Party Tag dies.

Avery Elle new release blog hop!

Aren't these lollipops so perfect? I kept to a red and pink theme, to match them. The trail of hearts image included in the cupid set is my fave! I stamped it onto the tag twice, without re-inking the stamp a second time. It gives a subtle, gradient effect.

I hope you like what I created for you today! Everything from the new release is available in the store right now - click HERE to check it out!
