Lawn Fawn February Inspiration + Release Week: Oh Gnome!

Hello! Welcome to Lawn Fawn Release week! This week we are featuring some of the new products that will be available on February 21st. Today we are starting out with Oh Gnome! :) I have a card as well as a little terrarium ornament to share.


For this card, I blended a twilight sky with distress oxide ink in seedless preserves, abandoned coral and tattered rose.  I added some water splatters and white watercolor paint splatters to the sky.  I think it looks adds to the twilight look and could be stars coming out or fireflies.


I cut the hillside backdrop from cilantro cardstock and inked the top edges with lucky clover distress oxide ink. The sentiment is white embossed on a black banner and I added a storm cloud frame to the whole thing to finish it off. You can see just how I created this card as part of the Oh Gnome! Intro video.


I also created this cute little terrarium using the set.  I bought these plastic ornaments at Michaels at Christmas time. The front is already cut out waiting for it to be filled with a scene of some kind.  The base is created with a styrofoam ball cut in half and then I just added moss and rocks overtop of the base. All the pieces are glued to toothpicks with hot glue which are easily inserted into the styrofoam below.


I just think this little terrarium is so cute. I have it sitting in my craft room and hope to suspend it from the ceiling eventually.  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more Oh Gnome! projects.

Love You A Latte Valentine

Today I have a fun coffee themed valentine perfect for all the coffee lovers in your life. I used the Thanks a Latte set from the fall/winter release to create my card.


After white embossing the sentiment using Riley's ABCs along the bottom I blended picked raspberry, worn lipstick, and wild honey distress oxide inks onto a panel cut with the zig-zag rectangle die. I added some pink pearl watercolor speckles over the blended background.


I added a stacked scripty love sentiment along the top and added some white pearl watercolor to the top layer to match the pearl speckles of the background. You can check out the video below or HERE on my YouTube channel 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Under the Stars ~ Revisiting An Old Design

Today I have a fun card to share that is actually a remake of a card I made 8 years ago! I had a friend ask about this older design of mine and it was fun to revisit a card from so long ago with new products in hand and newer techniques under my belt.


I blended the night sky with distress oxide inks in wilted violet, blueprint sketch, chipped sapphire and a little bit of black soot. The stars are created with flecks of gold metallic watercolors.


The main images come from Lawn Fawn's Cozy Christmas set, which is actually one of the very first Lawn Fawn stamp sets I ever purchased. I used the glass of milk and altered him to change him into a marshmallow.


The custom sentiment is stamped with Smitty's ABCs. I white embossed it on the letter on the front and simply stamped the second half of the sentiment on the inside with black licorice ink.  You can see just how I created this card in the video tutorial below or HERE on my YouTube channel.

And just for fun, I thought I would share my older version of this card. 


Thanks for stopping by today!
