space is great, but (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Today is the last day of projects for July's Lawn Fawn inspiration week. We're showing off the Just Stitching Stars die set, and I created a custom sentiment:

space is great (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

The stars were begging for an outer-space-themed card! I used images from Out Of This World to make a scene on this slimline card, and created the sentiment using Milo's ABCs and Oliver's Stitched ABCs.

I did some heavier dark inking around the edges to bring some extra drama, and a bit of white paint, flicked on, look like a million tiny stars in the distance.

A horse and a pig (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn's July inspiration week! We're taking a look at products from the latest release, and hoping to inspire you!

Today is our showcase of the Tiny Gift Box Bee Add-On, and the Unicorn and Horse Add-On.

When I was crafting for this release, my daughter and my niece were hanging out, watching over my shoulder. My niece got all excited for me to make her a horse box, and my daughter held up the die-cut and asked for a pig. It wasn't even a stretch to just cut the pieces out of pink paper and call it a pig.

You'll notice that the die that comes with ears features closed eyes, but the girls wanted their animals to have open eyes. All I did was layer the Bee Add-On on top of the Horse Add-On.

To finish off, I added blushy cheeks to each animal and used a white gel pen to add some highlights.

Build-an-aquarium (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's July inspiration week. All of the products shown are available in their store right now. Today, we're taking a closer look at a very cool die set, Build-An-Aquarium.

I think it's just so much fun! I covered the card base with a cream layer of the Sparkle Backdrop. Then, I cut the aquarium frame out of white and soft grey cardstocks. Inside, I used some border dies for the sandy floor and the water backgrounds.

I cut everything out of white cardstock and then colored them with copic markers. I love the beady-eyed tiny fish, haha. Everything was placed behind an acetate, to help it look more like a real aquarium.

The sentiment was borrowed from Fintastic Friends.

Wish big! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's July inspiration week! The summer release is in the store and we're hoping to provide a bit of extra inspiration for you. Today is our showcase of the Pop-up Wish Big die. It's a fun way to add some interest to the inside of your card:

First, check out the front of the card. I used images from Unicorn Picnic and stenciled some purple clouds all over the background. The clouds continue on the inside...

I kept it pretty simple and sweet inside, but something that any little girl would love. I hope you like it!

Simply celebrate summer (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's July inspiration week! We're taking a closer look at the rest of the summer release, and hoping to inspire you.

Today is our showcase of Simply Celebrate Summer:

Simply Celebrate is a whole line of stamps for Lawn Fawn, and the rows of images makes it easy to create quick cards that are still so fun.

I made the background colorful and kept the ice creams icy looking. For an extra pop of color, I used copic markers to also color the frame a bright pink.

The sentiment is from Simply Summer Sentiments and finishes off the card perfectly.

I loved putting this one together! I made a night-time scene, so that they could roast all the marshmallows!

If you look at the close-up, you'll see an extra detail - I stamped an extra "arm" for each critter, and stuck it on top. I like when they actually look like they're holding the stuff. ha.

Stay cool (Avery Elle)

Hi there!

I have one very coooool card to share with you today!

stay cool (Avery Elle)


These critters crack me up! Aren't they hilarious? They are from the new Avery Elle Stay Cool stamp set. I stamped, die-cut and colored the bear, the bunny, the speech bubble and a slew of stars. Then, I grabbed a sheet of patterned paper from The Spring Collection paper pack and die-cut into it using the Ray backdrop die. It has that gradient effect that makes it so fun!

I arranged the elements on top of the sunset paper, and mounted all of that with foam squares onto a card-sized white layer.

To finish off, I added a few accents with a white gel pen. It came together so quickly and easily but it packs a cool punch because of all of the happy color!

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
