get yeti! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's September inspiration week! Today is our showcase of the Foursquare Backdrop dies as well as the Snow Day Remix papers.

I brought in the cuties from Yeti or Not, along with a few other winter stamps and made 4 tiny vignettes. The snowy patterned paper provided the perfect blue pop against all of the red accents.

In lieu of a stamped sentiment, I opted for the Happy Holidays Line Border. I love the extra pop of red that it gives!

Snowglobe tags (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's September inspiration week. Today is our showcase of the Tiny Christmas stamp set and the Snow Globe Gift Tag.

My trio of tags is pretty simple, but that's how I like my tag-making to be! Each tag boasts its own snowy scene, and woodgrain base.

I just love the kids in their onesie pyjamas!

I love that the snow globe die set includes the little snowdrift piece - so perfect for this type of scene-building!

Ho-ho-holidays (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's September inspiration week. I have 2 cards to share with you for our showcase of Ho-ho-holidays and the Rooftop Border die.

Ho-ho-holidays (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Guess who's really doing all the heavy lifting? hee hee. I started with a piece of white cardstock for the snowy background layer, and ink-blended different shades of blue ink. I also added extra little splatters of white paint on top.

My next card brings in the oldest set, Christmas Dreams. After all of the presents are delivered, the Clauses deserve some down-time. I laid a piece of woodgrain patterned paper for the floor, and added all of the living room elements (including the little kitty!) on top of it.

I hope you like both cards! There's more to see on the LF blog this morning - click!

Mice on ice! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's September inspiration week! Today is our showcase of Mice On Ice and the Stitched Pond die.

Mice on ice (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I cut off part of the pond so that I could fit in a snowy landscape below. Those ice-skating mice are so cute! I especially love the hand-holding pair.

It's really impossible to see in the picture but the pond itself is a subtle shimmer paper. It gives off the right kind glitz in real life.

I added little trees below to frame the sentiment. A little red heart brings the red of the scarves to the bottom half of the card.

Stamptember! Snow Bunnies

Hi there!

Lawn Fawn is celebrating STAMPtember with Simon Says Stamp today! The brand new, exclusive set is called Snow Bunnies. This set is only available at Simon Says Stamp while supplies last.


I created a soft, pink scene with the set:

I die-cut rolling snow hills and set the images at different levels. I created 2 separate scenes - the tree-decorating bunnies at the top, and the snow-bunny-building one at the bottom.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

A slice of pumpkin pie (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

The fall/winter collection hit the stores yesterday, but as a special treat, the design team is serving up slices of pie today! We're showing off the new Cake Slice Box Pie Add-On:

I used the yellow paper from the Spiffy Speckles patterned paper pad, sponging orange ink over-top. I love the dimension and texture that you get from the little speckles!

I added whipped cream to the top, and a kraft-colored pie-crust. I finished off with a sweet sentiment banner.

Christmas Kids (Avery Elle new release blog hop!)

Hi there!








I am so thrilled to be part of the Avery Elle new release blog hop - and even more elated to reveal that I will now be joining their team of illustrators! I have 4 stamp sets included in this release, and I hope you love them all!

For today, I am showing off Christmas Kids:

Christmas Kids (Avery Elle new release blog hop)

I designed this set to be a stamp-one-and-done kind of Christmas set. I love this kind of large-scale image, especially because I can stamp and die-cut a bunch of them in advance, color them at my leisure and then have my holiday cards come together in a snap.

Christmas Kids (Avery Elle new release blog hop)


For this card, I did some very subtle ink-blending on the card base, and then popped the main image up using foam tape. I colored everything with copic markers. I had so much fun giving the kids different skin tones and hair colors! The little Santa image on the boy's sweater is my fave.

Christmas Kids (Avery Elle new release blog hop)

I did a bit of doodling on the girl's mug to make it look like Santa's face, and added polka dots and stripes to clothing with a white gel pen. I also used my gel pen to add little snowflake doodles to the background. I would have used the stamp image for that, but I thought of it too late ::facepalm::

Christmas Kids (Avery Elle new release blog hop)

My second card is a bit of a stepped-up card design. I backed the kids with a starry night patterned paper, added a snow-bank and a white frame die (the Dotted Frame by Avery Elle,) and added a pop of red as the base layer.

I also took the extra step of re-drawing the black lines around the snow-pile images, so that the snow would look seamless on top of the tree.
