Lawn Fawn August Inspiration + Release Week: Fall Leaf Reveal Wheel Add-on + Apple Stackables & Frames

Hello! Welcome back for another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week. Today we are featuring the new Outside-In Stitched Apple Stackables and Stitched Apple Frames as well as the new Fall Leaf Reveal Wheel Add-on.


My first card to share today is a shaped card created with the new Stitched Apple dies and frames. I created the card base using vanilla malt cardstock and the largest Outside-In Apple stackable.  I tucked the stem and leaf between the two pieces of the card base before gluing them together at the top.


I added a frame from Chili Pepper cardstock and the Scripty Thanks cut from Paper Bag cardstock with some distress inking along the bottom.  I finished off the sentiment in walnut ink and added some cute owls from the new So Owlsome stamp set.


My second and third card today both use the new Square Reveal Wheel dies and the Fall Leaf Reveal Wheel add-on.  The first one uses lots of Knit Picky Fall papers and the Happy Fall Line border.  The smiles used for the leaf are from the Thanks a Latte set.


My second Fall Leaf Reveal Wheel Add-on card is cut from Yupo paper decorated with alcohol ink.


The Scripty Thanks sentiment is cut from brown glitter cardstock which is part of the Autumn glitter cardstock pack and the card base is made from one of the new Woodgrain cardstock colors.


Check out the intro videos to see how a couple of these cards were created.  And be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more projects and inspiration!

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
