Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Toadally Awesome

Hello! We are getting close to the end of this month's Lawn Fawn Inspiration week, but we are not quite done yet.  Today we are featruing the new set Toadally Awesome.


I believe we have finally reached the last of my Creativation jar scenes, but these are by far my favorites!  I created two frog scenes and really loved the idea of incorporating the bayou backdrop hanging from the top of the jar. I used two colors of cardstock and glued them to the inside of the jars with xtreme adhesive tape runner.  I did the same with the twine on the outside to hide the adhesive.  As a side note this technique works best on cylindrical jars with straight sides. (by the way I found these jars at Hobby Lobby and really liked working with them over Mason jars) I also really loved the opportunity to use different mosses for the base and the dark blue marbles to create these swampy scenes.


All the images are colored with Copic markers.  I put the jumping frog onto a coiled piece of copper wire so he is jumping through the air. (he is kind of hidded in the greenery in these pictures) And for the little dragonfly I just glued the die cut trail to the back of the little frog to make it look like it was in the air.

Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Gotta Have Gingham

Hello! Today's Lawn Fawn Inspiration week post features the new Gotta Have Gingham collection.


I created all my elements with various colors of gingham.  For the sun I inked the edges with Butter ink to define them more for the balloons I added wilted violet oxide ink.  I white embossed my little elephant on narwhal cardstock and added a few strokes of grey copic for some shading and pink colored pencil cheeks and ears. I stamped the sentiment and balloons with storm cloud ink.

Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Simply Celebrate + Simply Sentiments

Hello! Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration week! Today we are playing with some "simply" wonderful sets, Simply Celebrate & Simply Sentiments.  These two stamps sets were designed to work together an allow for quickly made simple cards.


For this card I tried something out of my comfort zone, free flowing watercolor.  I do struggle with things I can't control, which is why I don't watercolor very often.  I really should practice more. But in the mean time I tried something simple.  Full disclosure it did take me three attempts it looking presentable. I stamped the stars with antique linen ink first just so I could see their placement.  This let me see where to start my watercolor stripes.


I created the stripes by smooshing some distress ink on my craft mat, adding a little water then pulling the color from the star to the edge of the paper. I flicked some white gold watercolor droplets over the colors once they were dry.  Then I stamped the stars again in black and the sentiment as well. I finished it off with some black twine and then popped it up on foam adhesive on the card base.

Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Happy Village

Hello Friends! Today for Lawn Fawn Inspiration week we are featuring the new set HappyVillage. This set is a great year round version of the cute little Winter Village set released last year for the holidays.


My first project today is a cute little card with quite the mix of pattern papers.  I used papers from all three new paper lines, Gotta Have Gingham, Perfectly Plaid Spring & Really Rainbow to create my scene.


I used the little speech bubble for my sentiment so that the it became incorporated into the scene.


My second project is another project that was created for the Lawn Fawn booth at Creativation.  This one created inside a cool teardrop terarrium and I kept it simple with just having a moss hill with a few stones around the base.


Thanks for stopping by today.  Please be sure and check out other Happy Village projects on the Lawn Fawn blog!
