Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week: Small Stitched Envelope

Hello! Today is the final day of Lawn Fawn inspiration week and I have a Small Stitched Envelope project to share.


This envelope is the perfect size for a gift card so I decorated my envelope to be filled with a starbucks gift card.  I used the Perfectly Plaid Fall papers along with Love You a Latte.  On the front I white embossed the sentiment and paper pieced the sleeves on the cups with plaid papers.  I also cut out dark brown cardstock hearts and used them on the sleeves as well.


I die cut just the flap of the envelope from plaid paper and layered it over the kraft cardstock for a cool look on the back with the two different papers.  I die cut the "enjoy" sentiment from the same dark brown cardstock and used one of the hearts to dot the "j."  I punched some holes in the flaps so that I could add twine tie the envelope closed.

Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week: Perfectly Plaid Christmas

Hello! Today for Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week we are using the new Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper collection.  I create a patchwork look by die cutting 1 inch stitched squares from the different plaids in the collection and then piecing them together.  After I had them all pieced together I die cut the panel with the largest stitched heart die. 


For the sentiment I die cut black cardstock with the new scripty Be and scripty Merry dies, added some black sparkle pen then a layer of glossy accents.  I scattered around some buttons and tiny clear sequins to add to the quilted look of the card.


Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more Perfectly Plaid Christmas projects!

Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week: String of Lights & Narwhal and Friends

Hello! Today for Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week we are sharing projects with two new die sets, String of Lights and Narwhal & Friends.


For my first project using the new String of Lights dies I cut the lights from white cardstock then used distress inks to color each one.  After I had the bulbs inked I added a layer of clear sparkle overlay with a spectrum noir sparkle pen and finished them off with a layer of glossy accents.


The tops of the bulbs are cut from silver glitter paper for that extra pop of sparkle.  I wanted the bulbs to be the focus of the card so I kept the background simply white.  The sentiment is stamped with gold Delicata ink and I sprinkled some tiny clear sequins around to finish it off.


My second project uses the new Narwhal and friends dies. I cut a little seal out of felt and added some stitching to the hat and muzzle.  Because I was working on a bag that was already assembled I used felt glue to attach my seal to the canvas bag rather than stitching it on.


I added some googly eyes and a button fro the top of his hat for some added embellishment.  Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn Blog for more projects including the other variations for the narwhal and friends die!
