Lawn Fawn Release Week: Candy Hearts + Border Dies

Today I'm back with another post for Lawn Fawn Release week. Today we are focusing on some new dies.  Candy Hearts, XOXOXO line border die and Sending Hugs line border die. I have a few cards to share using these new dies so I'll get right to it.


For my first card, I embraced the rainbow of the Really Rainbow strip paper and cut a rainbow of hugs hearts.  I popped the hearts up on foam to create a shade behind where the words were cut.


I used the new sending hugs line border die to cut black cardstock for a sentiment that would stand out on the colorful background.


Continuing with the rainbow them. I used the wide rainbow strip paper from Really Rainbow and created a 4 bar size card and covered the entire front.  I cut the hearts from pixie dust glitter cardstock and layered Narwhal cardstock behind them. I popped them up off the card base with foam adhesive.


I again used black cardstock to cut the XOXOXO line border from and adhered it toward the bottom right of the card, trimming off the excess line. I finished it off with some clear iridescent sequins.


On my last card, I used the candy hearts cut from Watercolor Wishes paper to create some balloons. I used the raccoon from Holiday Party Animal and the sentiment from Love Letters.


Be sure and visit the Lawn Fawn Blog today to see more projects from the Design Team using the Candy Hearts and new sentiment border dies.  You can also see how I created my first two cards as part of the Candy Hearts Intro video.

Lawn Fawn Release Week: Let's Toast

Hello! I know it's not even Christmas yet but I have been working on making some fun Valentine projects for you with the new Valentine release from Lawn Fawn! Today we are featuring the new set Let's Toast and it is so super cute!  I have lots of cards to share so I will get right to it!


First up is a fun shaker card with the cute pop tarts popping up out of the toaster.  Get ready because this set is full of the puns.  I stamped the tarts around on the background to create my own pattern paper and cut out an outside-in stitched heart for the window.


My second card features the toast in the set with some cute heart shaped butter on top. I love the gingham paper behind it, almost like a tablecloth. 


I love the teal and yellow with the pink for a less traditional Valentine look. 


Finally, I have some super simple lunch box notes to share using all the images in the set.  I made a set of 4 bar size cards from kraft cardstock and added various gingham papers cut with the 4 bar stitched rectangle.   


These were quick to make with a few colored images and a simple stamped sentiment.  I added some colored hearts to some to fill the space a bit more. I just love the smiling toast!



This fun set also has an interactive die that creates a fun way for the toast or tart to pop up out of the toaster.  Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn blog and YouTube channel to see how all these cards came together as well as how the fun interactive add-on die works as well.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Woodland Critter Glitter Ornaments + Giving Tuesday

Today I have a fun decor project to share! I created some fun woodland critter glitter ornaments that were super simple and fun to create.  I think these would be a fun project to do with kids or to give as gifts and you could make them any colors you want which is super fun.


I stuck to more traditional colors for my critters.  I also have a fun trick for creating these glittery ornaments where the glitter remains safely inside with no mess once it is done.  Just coat the inside of the clear ornament with floor polish, add glitter and shake! You can see just how I did that in the tutorial below or HERE on my YouTube channel.

I used felt for the faces, ears, and tails and sandwiched cardstock between my felt for elements that need to be stiff to stand up.


Instead of using the noses included with the die I added a black button for the nose for some added fun.  I think it added a handmade look and looks super cute.


I think these would be fun to create in non-traditional colors like pinks and teals.  You can customize them for fun add-ons for packages or to match the colors of your Christmas decor.


I hope you liked this project showing you how to use your dies in a different way. Today is Giving Tuesday and Lawn Fawn has something special in store for today.

A Little Sparkle - Lawn Fawn Black Friday special

Hello! It's Black Friday so you know what that means, shipping specials a special stamp set available from Lawn Fawn with purchase! See the details below.

Today I have a bright and happy pop-up box card to share using the new mini set A Little Sparkle that is part of the Lawn Fawn Black Friday promotion.


I used the puffy cloud border dies to create some sparkly clouds for this cute little unicorn to play in.


The fairies are on strips of clear acetate so they look as if they are flying all around. I also added a die cut rainbow to the background to complete my magical unicorn scene.


I have a video tutorial for this pop-up box card.  Check it out below or on YouTube.
