Lawn Fawn August Inspiration + Release Week: Double Slider Surprise

Hello! Welcome back for another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! Today we are featuring the new Double Slider Surprise die! These cards were so much fun to make.


My first cards today is a double slider made with the new Winter Skies stamp set.


When you pull the tab at the bottom the sentiment appears on the bottom and then Santa appears in the sky above. I inked the front panel as well as the top card to look like a night sky.  The whole assembly is mounted onto a card base made from new white woodgrain cardstock.  The snowy ground is cut from the new sparkle cardstock in pixie dust.

The second card I have to share uses the new Thanks a Latte set on a double slider surprise card.


I used two different colored cards that slide out, to coordinate with the sentiments I used.  Whtie for marshmallows and cream for the coffee cream sentiment. 


I used the gingham backdrop stamp to create a plaid cloth for my cute little coffee cups to sit on.


I layered the whole assembly pocket over a scalloped rectangle for a little more detail and to bring in the pink of the coffee cup.


If you missed yesterday's post I have a Halloween Double Slider Surprise using Pick of the Patch as well!  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more Double Slider projects!

Get Cracking on Christmas: Rustic Plaid Christmas Tree


*** if you are looking for today's Lawn Fawn Inspiration week post please go HERE ***

Well, it's the third Thursday of the month so that means it's time for another Get Cracking on Christmas post! If you have been following along this year you know that this idea started with my friends Jenn & Cheiron because we get all these great Christmas products and never seem to get around to using them around the holidays.  So we decided to challenge ourselves to make one holiday card a month for the entire year. Our friend Libby has also been joining us too!


This month I created a card using some fabric.  I saw this plaid fabric at Hobby Lobby and I thought it would make some fun rustic ornaments if I ever got around to sewing anything.  I have not sewn anything yet but did experiment with using it on a card. I covered a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of cardstock with the fabric, wrapping it around to the back and securing it with double-sided adhesive.  I then adhered this fabric panel to a card base.  Then I wrapped some Lawn Fawn peppermint twine around the card a few times and tied it in a bow toward the top.


I die cut a smaller rectangle panel from Lawn Fawn Kraft cardstock and also cut one of the new Outside-in stitched Christmas Tree stackables from Lawn Fawn in the center.  I added a little bit of tea dye distress ink to the edges.  The sentiment is composed of a white embossed "merry" on Noble Fir cardstock, cut with the coordinating die and a combination of stamps from the new Simply Winter Sentiments and Winter Scripty Sentiments stamped in Noble Fir ink.  All of these new products will all be available on August 23.

Be sure to stop by JennCheiron & Libby's blogs for more holiday inspiration and if you want to join us in our monthly holiday challenge all you have to do is create a holiday card or project and post it to your blog or social media such as Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #getcrackingonchristmas

Lawn Fawn August Inspiration + Release Week: Pick of the Patch + Reveal Wheel Add-on + Spooky Fence

Hello! It's Lawn Fawn Inspiration and Release week so I hope you are ready for some fall & halloween inspiration because this week will be full of it!  I've been emersed in fall/winter projects for over a month now so I'm ready for the weather to turn cooler and head into my favorite time of year.  Today we are featuring the new stamp set Pick of the Patch as well as a fun reveal wheel add-on that coordinates with it and the new spooky fence border die.  I have a lot of project to share today so let's get right to it.


My first card uses the new double slider surprise die (which will be featured in tomorrow's Lawn Fawn blog post).  I will be doing a video for this card in the coming weeks so stay tuned for that. 


I inked a spooky sky on the main pocket panel as well as the slide out cards which I think looks really great with the bright orange pumpkins and black spooky fence.


I also did some tone on tone stamping with the starry backdrop stamp on the card base to coordinate with my night time scene and added flecks of metallic watercolor for some fun extra detail.


My second card today was inspired by my fellow Lawn Fawn Design team memenber Audrey.  I took her idea and created a reveal wheel card with the new pick of the patch reveal wheel add-on window.   


Thank Audrey for letting me use your card for inspiration.  The sky is inked with Distress oxides on a swirly stitched backdrop piece.  The wheel lets the face of the pumpkin change for a fun interactive element.


Please check out the Pick of the Patch Intro Video to see exactly how I created this card. 


My second Pick of the Patch Reveal Wheel card is a bit more simple.  It uses the new Square Reveal Wheel set with the pumpkin cut out to change the faces.  I layered different square die cut pieces of cardstock for the background, with a stiched woodgrain die cut piece on the top.  I inked the edges of the top layer with some hickory smoke distress ink to give it a spooky look.


The sentiment is white embossed on black cardstock and popped up off the front of the card to really stand out. 


My final card has another oxide inked sky, this time spritzed with lots of water to get the texture.  I paired the spooky fence with the landscape leafy tree backdrop to set the scene.


My pumpkins on this card are white embossed on orange cardstock so no color is required.  I use colored pencil to color in the stems at the top and stamped the sentiment and swirly vines of the pumpkins directly onto the background.  I finished off with some gold stamped stars.


Whew, that was a lot of cards! But there is even more inspiration using Pick of the Patch, spooky fence and the reveal wheel add-on over on the Lawn Fawn Blog.

Laundry Spinner Card

Today I have a fun spinner card inspired by my friend Megan.  I made this fun baby card by changing up she Lawn Fawn Reveal wheel die along to coordinate with the Loads of Fun stamp set.


I also used the dog from Let's Play and the sleeping kitty from Christmas Dreams to set my laundry room scene.


I stuck with blues for a baby boy card but I think this would be very cute in more feminine colors as well for a little girl. You can watch a full tutorial showing how I created this card and modified the reveal wheel window below, HERE on my YouTube channel or HERE on the Lawn Fawn YouTube channel.  Supplies used are linked below.

Thanks for stopping by today!
