bats and turkeys (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's August inspiration week! We're showing off items from the fall/winter collection leading up to the August 22nd release week (and woot! that's tomorrow!)

Today, we're showing off a new Woodland Critter Hugger - a Bat Add-on! and another add-on, the Tiny Gift Box Peacock and Turkey Add-On.

I couldn't help but start out by making the turkey. he's so cute! I used an off-white cream cardstock for his face, and a kraft for his body. I used markers to draw stripes on the tail-feathers, to break up all of that kraft cardstock.

The little pilgrim hat is so fun!

I also made a little gift bag using the Goodie Bag die and the new bat dies.

In real life he's much cuter - in the photo the gray of his body looks so washed out you can hardly see his white fangs! But trust me, he's cute. I added a little scarf (from the Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-On) and some black crinkle paper to break up all of that grey. The finishing touch was a little piece of purple candy for him to hold.

I hope you like them! Check out what the rest of the design team cooked up on the Lawn Fawn blog today - click!

Tree Before 'n Afters

Hi there!

Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn's August inspiration week. We're showing off items from the fall/winter collection ahead of the August 22nd release date.

Today is our showcase of Tree Before 'n Afters - it's a set that features trees for all seasons, and so many cute smiley faces!

Trees Before 'n Afters (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I just love apple orchards. I colored the trees, and so many apples, and set them on grassy rolling hills. And I obviously added a smiley face to each tree.

To add dimension, I sponged some light brown ink onto the grassy hills and used a brown pen to add little dot accents.

Pumpkins (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn's August inspiration week. We're showing off items from the fall/winter collection before it all becomes available for sale on August 22nd.

Today, we're showing off the Outside In Stitched Pumpkin dies. I made a card and gift bag set using the new dies:

I used the yellow (ripe banana) paper from the Spiffy Speckles pad, sponging orange ink over-top. I liked that the end result was a very soft orange, with all of that texture from the patterned paper.

Build-A-House (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's August inspiration week! At the end of the inspiration week, the fall/winter collection will (finally!) be available for purchase - on August 22nd.

Today is our showcase of Build-A-House, Reveal Wheel Build-A-House Add On, Build-A-House Halloween Add-On, and Tiny Halloween.

I, weirdly enough, used everything but the Build-A-House Halloween Add-On to create this spooktacular card:

I would like to take a minute to celebrate that this is the first Reveal Wheel card that I was able to make without consulting a how-to You Tube video. haha. I think I finally got the hang of it!

I love the "turn here to spook" sentiment included in Tiny Halloween, as well as the tiny images that you can add to the open window!

I love that it pairs with the new circle Reveal Wheel shape! The extra kitties coming to get their fortunes read are from Say What? Pets and Keep On Swimming.

What do you think? Super cute, huh? I did some ink-blending using Lawn Fawn's Hippo ink, and added both white and black paint splatters on top of that before adding the images.

Flippin' Awesome (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome back to day 2 of this month's Lawn Fawn inspiration week - everything will be available for purchase at the end of the week, on August 22nd!

Today, we're showing off a new interactive die, called Flippin' Awesome.

Flippin' Awesome (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

It's so much fun! I created 4 square scenes, using images from Spooky Village. When you pull on the tab, the tiles cascade one after the other.

I stamped out BOO at the end, because it was too sad to leave it blank, but I also am not in the habit of giving out gift-cards for Halloween. For Christmas, though... I plan on adding one there.

I added the new Happy Halloween Line Border in lieu of a stamped sentiment. I also added little die-cut ghosts and other spooky things - they are part of the new Build A House Halloween Add-On.

Spooky Village (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

It's time for Lawn Fawn's August inspiration week! At the end of the week everything will (finally) be available for purchase - you've been so patient! August 22nd will be here before you know it.

Today, the design team is showing off cards made with Spooky Village:

Spooky Village (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

This set is so cute! I just love all of the tinier elements - the little pumpkin patch, the graves, and of course, the teeny trick or treaters! I just find the candy-corn costume so hilarious.

The graphic, black sky and the kraft colored hills allow all of the colored houses to really stand out.
