Stitched cloud backdrop (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

This month's Lawn Fawn inspiration week is winding down, with all new products hitting the stores tomorrow!

Today, we're showing off the Stitched Cloud Backdrops, perfect for adding subtle sky detail to your card-fronts.

I couldn't help but pair the cover-plate with another new set, Plane and Simple.

The circle frame was perfect for highlighting the plane, and I added some simple coloring to the clouds in the background.

The one smiling cloud is so cute. I had to add a smiley face in there!

Hi again!

This is my second post for the day. Scroll down or click *HERE* to see my Lawn Fawn project.

I'm using a new Avery Elle set, Birthday Bus:

Is this not the cutest image? I love it so much. I also used the new Horizontal Stripes die, and I like how it covers the entire card-base but leaves room for the main image. perf.

Wild for you (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Wild for you (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Today, the Lawn Fawn team is showing off Wild For You, a fun set featuring wild critters and birthday hats and a slew of sentiments for different occasions.

I used one of the new Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies to make a chunky frame for my critters. I backed it in a saturated teal cardstock so that the animals would really pop.

To show different levels of interest, I placed the first 3 critters inside the frame, and kept the alligator (my fave) outside. I also added a little hashtag banner to the top and balanced it out with some butterflies on the left.

I hope you like it! Kelly Marie re-created this card in her video today, but bumped it up and turned it into a shaker card. Check it out - click!

Duh nuh (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Duh nuh (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)


We're showing off the cute little set, Duh-nuh, today which I paired with Ocean Wave Accents and Ocean Hillside Pop-up Add On dies to create an underwater scene.

Duh nuh (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

I did a partial die-cut of the ocean wave so that I could have one really tall panel for the little wave accents.

The panels were colored with distress inks. I sponged a darker blue, and even some Black Soot ink to the lowest panel, and worked up to the lightest blue (Tumbled Glass) at the top. I then flicked a bit of water onto all three panels to give some extra interest.

You're claw-some and wish upon a star (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there! Happy Mother's Day, and welcome back to another day of this month's Lawn Fawn inspiration week.

I hosted our Mother's Day brunch yesterday and somehow got distracted by yummy waffles.



Sorry I missed posting my card! I'm making up for it by posting yesterday's and today's cards in one go.

Today's showcase features the new set, You're Clawsome. I just love this set! It is so fun and innovative and the kids went bananas for it when they first saw it.

I colored the machine in a bright red, and set it on top of a graphic black and white striped background. The bears were colored in shades of brown with the lightest one being snatched out.

Yesterday's reveal featured star-gazing critters in Upon A Star. I decided to forgo stamping the constellations in the set, and just used the Snowy Backdrop cover plate instead. One shooting star gave them something to wish on. The card design is simple, but so sweet.

Magic color slider (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn's inspiration and summer release week! Today, we're showing off a very cool new die: the Magic Color Slider.

Everything is black and white... until you pull the slider to reveal a colorful scene!

I used Dad + Me to show a straight-laced dad hanging with his kid.

But the sentiment and the "pull here" tab tell a different story...

Maybe Dad isn't so serious...

Definitely not. Those joke glasses are hilarious.

Here are my tips for making a magic slider card:

- use Staz-on ink for stamping on the acetate.

- a stamp positioning tool (like the MISTI) is a huge help. I wanted a good impression on the acetate and it took 2 or 3 inkings to get that.

- think of fun things that could be added as the slider pulls back. I did that with joke glasses on this card!

- saturate your colorful background. In hindsight, I wish I had done that. When you pull back the slider tab, the wow factor is revealing a completely colorful panel and I kept mine too light. I will definitely be making another one very soon!

Ahoy, matey! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

ahoy, matey! (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Lawn Fawn's summer release is being shown on the blog alllll week and you are gonna want to check it out. It was like Christmas in May when I opened my box of new goodies. The summer release will be available for purchase as of May 18th.

We're kicking things off with a look at Ahoy, Matey.

I made a sky out of Watercolor Wishes paper, and a kraft hillside for the pirate to bury his treasure in. Or find it. That probably makes more sense.

The Happy Birthday sentiment fits perfectly into a Bannertastic banner.

The little pirate is so cute with his peg leg. And the tiny puddle as a parking spot for the ship is cracking me up.
