Lawn Fawn holiday week!

 Hi there!

It's a special kind of Lawn Fawn inspiration week! We're getting you ready for the holidays with Christmas cards and projects all week long.

Lawn Fawn holiday week!

I dressed up the office for the holidays with the help of a few mousey friends. I combined mice from Dandy Day, Crazy Antics and Love poems to make this card. The cute office images are from You're Just My Type! To add festive touches, I included holly, candy canes and gingerbread from A Creature Was Stirring and the gifts from Car Critters Christmas Add-On

25 days of Christmas tags (with Lawn Fawn)

 Hi there!


I'm thrilled to be joining Tracey McNeely's annual 25 days of Christmas tags event! Look at this amazing line up of sponsors:

Lawn Fawn is the sponsor today! I'm joining the rest of the team to show off our best Christmas tags for you!

I stamped the Santa from Ho-Ho-Holidays in Crunchy Leaf ink and colored him using Copic markers. I used the Large Wreath die set to frame the Santas, and added a little tag from the new Scalloped Circle Gift Tag die set. A little old, a little new!

To make Santa really pop, I added a piece of black cardstock, cut with the Snowy Backdrop die. I then added extra snowflakes to the background and on Santa with a white gel pen and used white paint to give the greenery a flocked look.

25 days of Christmas tags (with Avery Elle)

 Hi there!

I'm thrilled to be joining Tracey McNeely's annual 25 days of Christmas tags event! Look at this amazing line up of sponsors:

Avery Elle is the sponsor today, so you know I had to jump in with a few tags!

I made this set of tags using images from Winter Friends! It's a set that I illustrated for Avery Elle and I think they look so cute on these tags! The tag shape is courtesy of the Holiday Circle Tags die set, and the No Peeking sentiment is from Peek-A-Boo Tags. I can't wait to use these on some presents!

I also brought back one of my favorite sets from last year's winter release: Santa Bear.

I colored images from the set and put them onto a piece from the Holiday Ephemera pack. Nothing simpler!

I hope you like my tags for today. Check out Tracey's blog today for more inspiration: click!

Pretty poinsettias (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

 Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's inspiration week! Today is our showcase of the Stitched Poinsettia dies and the So Joyful Line Border:

Pretty poinsettias (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I started out by using a sheet of red and white plaid paper (it's older in the Lawn Fawn lineup, and we no longer carry it.) I used a maroon ink and a blender brush to darken the edges and tone down the plaid. I love that the background carries just a hint of a pattern this way. Before continuing onto next steps, I splattered white paint onto the red background.

I then cut out the poinsettia and leaves, as well as sprigs from Large Wreath and Spring Sprig. I played with the composition until I felt like it was full but not too busy, and added the line border sentiment at the bottom.

Christmas fireplace (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's November inspiration week. We're showing off items from the current release all week long, and hoping to inspire you!

Today is our showcase of the Shadow Box Card Fireplace Add-On:

Christmas fireplace (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I used it on a card instead of as a shadow box, and made it look like something I would find in a home magazine. Light grey walls, some white molding above the fireplace, and a chic black facade. I hung a wreath above the fireplace and 3 bright red stockings from the mantle.

Peas on earth (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

 Hi there!

Happy Halloween! I can't believe we're a day away from November. And also, that we're starting the last of the winter inspiration weeks! Next month, we'll be showing you Valentine stuff! ack!

Today, we're showing off the adorable Peas On Earth set: 

Peas on earth (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I created a long slimline scene with the Slimline Forest Border. I love that you can mix and match Lawn Fawn sets! I combined Peas On Earth with the previously released Be Hap-pea so that some cute little peas could do some sledding in their pod while others could be singing carols.

Woodland Scene Builder x3

Hi there!

I'm here with a few cards using a set from Avery Elle's newest release, Woodland Scene Builder. I'm hoping to show you how versatile this stamp set is!

Right away, I flipped it and used the background image on a vertical card.



I stamped the background image, and then carefully cut the large tree with the mouse peeking out straight up. Then, I stamped it again lined up the right edge of the background to the right edge of my card. The trees layered on top of that tree on the left. Clear? haha. I'm confusing myself. To make it even more seamless, I used a black pen to draw in all of the missing lines (I didn't want the white die-cut border to show) and then colored everything in with copic markers. Try zooming in to the top left-hand side of the card for a better view. 




After that, building the rest of the card was easy! I added in the sledding squirrel from Winter Friends and some string lights from O Tiny Tree. I love how the mouse and squirrel are waving to each other!

My next card shows you that this background set can be used year-round:


I paired it with images from Camping Critters for a fun summer set. I achieved a more summery look by stamping the grassy tufts included in the set, and doing some ink-blending on the card base before adding in the die-cut layers. I also kept the string lights white, which is 100% less festive than coloring them red.


I couldn't help but add in some pops of red, though! Just enough? hee hee.

My 3rd card uses the set more simply:



I literally just tucked it behind the big die-cut Happy Holidays, added the little girl on the deer to the side, and accented the die-cut with some sprigs and the snowman from O Tiny Tree

I hope you like my cards for today! Thanks for stopping by!
