Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Milk Carton + Stitched Borders

Hello! I'm back with more new Lawn Fawn as inspiration week continues. Today we are sharing projects with the new Milk Carton die and Stitched Borders dies so I have two new projects to share.


So how cute is this Milk Carton die? Adorable! So I automatically thought this needed to be decorated with some milk and cookies since it is after all a milk carton.  I used the new Ocean Wave border dies to make some "milk" for my cookie jar and grumpy cookie to float in.


I punched a hole in the top for the straw and used a small hole punch on the top so the carton could be  tied at the top and easy to open.  I also used the stitched borders on the little tag tied to the top.  On a side note, Matt and I had a milk and cookies theme for our wedding 4 years ago.  If I had had this die who knows what I would have done with it back then!


For my second project I used the stitched border dies to create a wrap for this little succulent jar to turn it into a sweet little gift.


Here is a close up of the cross stitch detail cut by the die.  There are 4 different stitching details included in this border die set.  Check out the Lawn Fawn blog to see more Milk Carton and Stitched Border die projects!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Party Animal

Hello Friends!
It's Lawn Fawn Inspiration & Release week! You will love the new Lawn Fawn products that will all be available starting June 4.  Today the Design Team is sharing projects using the new set Party Animal. These little critters are super cute and ready to party!


I colored the bear and little birds with copics and used the coordinating dies to cut the images out. I used the Pint-Sized patterns Beachside papers for my card base and picture panel.


I stamped the sentiment on a solid piece of pink card stock to match the birthday cake and hand cut the fishtail ends.  Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn blog to see more projects made with the Party Animal set, and I'm sure there is a bunch of giveaways going on all week there as well.

Sunsets at the Fair

Hello Friends!
I went to a crafty retreat over a month ago and one cool thing about retreats like that is you get to use stamps you don't have in your collection.  I played with the Around We Go set from Mama Elephant and created two sunset silhouette cards.


I  blended distress inks to create the sunset on a piece of Distress Watercolor paper then I die cut two panels out of it.  I thought the images in this set would look great as stark black silhouettes against the bright background.


I stamped the images with Onyx Black Versafine ink and cut black card stock for the ground.  I sprayed the ground in the first card with shimmer spray for some added shine.


And for a little shine on the second card I added some stickles glitter to the centers of the fireworks in the sky.

On another note...Sorry I've been absent from blog posting lately, we moved out of our condo and in with my parents while we build a new house so it's tight quarters and I haven't yet gotten into a crafting rhythm yet.  I have been sharing pics of the progress on my Instagram account but thought I would share a little here too, here is a cool panoramic pic I took standing in the front door.  The living room is to the left and the kitchen/dining is to the right. Thanks for stopping by today!

Birthday Party Animals

If you haven't already heard the news Simon Says Stamp has a new release out, and I had the privilage of playing with some of the new goodies including the Baby Party Animals set which is just adorable!


I think these look like little finger puppets and they are just too cute.  I also like how you can make them hold hands. I colored the background with distress inks and water and the little animals were colored with colored pencils with gamsol to blend.


Be sure to check out the other new items avaliable at Simon Says Stamp.
