Don't worry, be hoppy (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to another day of this month's Lawn Fawn inspiration week. We're taking a closer look at products from the current release, and today is our showcase of Don't Worry, Be Hoppy.

Don't worry, be hoppy (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I made a card full of little tree frogs, with the help of the branches from A Bug Deal. I colored the branches with copic markers and then used a fine-tipped brown pen to doodle little knots and accents on the branches.

I added a slew of leaves and then layered the frogs. I love their skinny legs peeking out!

The whole thing was placed on a blue-sky card-base. I used the Cloudy Stencil and some Kiddie Pool ink to create the backdrop, and then used a coordinating blue copic marker to color in the outside frame of the piece.

To finish off, I added a speech bubble and the sentiment.

Charge me up! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to another day of this month's Lawn Fawn inspiration week. We're taking a closer look at some of the new products from the current release. Today is our showcase of Charge Me Up:

Charge me up! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I started out by grabbing a sheet of purple Watercolor Wishes paper, and used a complimentary purple ink to shade the edges and give it more depth. I then placed 6 die-cut and colored robots on the card, and stamped the "illumination lines" at the top of each one of their antennas.

In the middle, I used a mix of stamped sentiment and Cole's ABCs letters to create the greeting.

Ladybug favor boxes (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's April inspiration week post. Today is our showcase of the Tiny Gift Box Ladybug Add-On:

Ladybug favor boxes (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I opted to make them in the simplest way possible. I cut out the box, face and antenna out of black cardstock. Then, I layered on the wings and extra pieces in red. I backed the face with a small scrap of white cardstock and used a white gel pen to add some highlights to a few areas.

Sometimes, simpler is better! I can see these looking so cute for a ladybug party table!

Year 10 (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to April's Lawn Fawn inspiration week, and Happy Easter!

Today is our showcase of Year 10, the adorably on-point mini cactus set!

I couldn't help but use it to make a birthday card:

year 10 (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)


I positioned 2 party cacti within a Reverse Stitched Scalloped Circle Window die and used a white gel pen to doodle around the scallops a bit before adding the characters.

I colored the cacti, and gave one of the the floral crown (from Swan Soiree) to wear, and let them share holding up the cake (from Beam Me Up.)

I backed the layers with a piece of really rainbow striped paper for an extra bit of fun. I hope you like it!

dandy day! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn's March inspiration week! We're taking a look at products from the newest release and hoping we inspire you to craft at home.

Are your kids home from school with all of the Covid-19 madness? Will you do any extra crafting? I have some projects lined up for the week, and I'm hoping I can convince a kid or 2 to join me!

Today is our showcase of the Dandy Day paper collection. I used the subtle yellow sheet on this card:

If you've been following my creations for the week, you can tell I make a bulk of my cards on the same day. I still had Butterfly Kisses on my table, and thought it would be cute to combine the fox with his outstretched arms and the dandelion flowers from Dandy Day. I used scissors to cut a slit between his paws, so that I could slide the flower in there.

The Reverse Stitched Scalloped Circle Window frames the focal images, and I used a sentiment banner to ground everything. Behind the buttery yellow paper, I opted for a light blue sky, and used a white gel pen to add a bokeh effect.

happy birthday! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's March inspiration week! The design team is showing off different products from the newest release all week long, and we're hoping we inspire you!

Today is our showcase of Offset Sayings: Birthday:

happy birthday! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)


My card for today is very simple, but I hope you'll think it's still fun! I grabbed a piece of the banner patterned paper (from the Hello Sunshine Remix pad) and layered the images on top of it. The images are from Butterfly Kisses, Birthday Before 'n Afters, and Eggstra Amazing Easter.

I colored all of the images using copic markers and then stamped the greeting directly underneath them. I colored the hollow letters using copic markers that matched the ribbon on the presents.

my lucky star (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's March inspiration week! Today is our showcase of Super Star:

my lucky star (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)


I decided to reach for a few different critters for this card - from Butterfly Kisses and Eggstra Amazing Easter - the mice have been getting all the love lately and I missed these guys!

For the background, I used Lawn Fawn inks to create a night sky - I mixed Black Licorice, Deep See, and Juice Box for the sky. I then grabbed the Grassy Hillside Stencils  for the ground. I really love how it turned out! I only wish my hand was steadier when I was holding down the stencils - my top layer of grass looks a little blurry.

But I am pretty proud of that sky! I flecked on some white paint (while using the stencil mask to protect the grassy hills) and added a moon and stars to the sky. The sweet sentiment was stamped in black ink at the bottom to finish off this card.
