Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week: Snow Day Collection

Hello, hello!
Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues with a Snow Day! Okay not really but we are showcasing the new Snow Day collection.  New papers, wood veneer and flair!


I used the busy stripe paper from the 6x6 paper pad for my background and cut it with the largest Large Stitched Rectangle die for my card base.  Then I chose the more simple ledger design paper and cut it with largest rectangle in the Small Stitched Rectangle set and adhered it at an angle so that the busy paper peeks out from behind.


I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Day stamp set and added the matching flair.  For my snowflakes I painted them with Brushed Pewter Distress Pain then coated them with a layer of silver stickles.

Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week: Deck the Halls + Stitched Snowflakes

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues! Today we are focusing on Deck the Halls stamp set and the Stitched Snowflakes dies.  I used the branches in Deck the Halls to create a cute wreath on my card.  I traced around the medium size round clear block with a pencil as my guide for stamping.


I used a variety of green inks starting with the lightest and working up to the darker ones.  I stamped the pinecones on kraft card stock with brown ink then used the matching dies to cut them out.  The little strings the pinecones are hanging from were stamped with gold delicata ink.


I stamped my red card base with the argyle backdrops and cut the script joy die from the same red card stock.  I covered the die cut in red stickles for some sparkle and add glitter berries as well.


For this card I inlayed the snowflakes in the cream colored panel.  I was going to trim them off at the edges but decided I liked the look of the them overlapping onto the red much better.  I die cut the script joy again and covered it in red stickles.  I like the idea of using one of the heart dies to cut a special heart dot for the sentiment.  I finished it off with some peppermint lawn trimmings twine.

Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week: Love you a Latte + Stitched Rectangles

Back again for another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration week! Today we are featuring the awesome coffee themed set Love You A Latte as well as the new Stitched Rectangle dies.  I have been wanting a cute coffee set and this far exceeded my expectations, I love how the sentiments look like the steam from the coffee! Brilliant!


I used a piece of the "cold snap" 12x12 pattern paper from Sweater Weather for my background, the quilt pattern made it the perfect background to cut a square card.  I paper pieced the cup from patterns in the 6x6 Sweater Weather pad and used embossing so the images would stand out.


I used brown embossing powder for my steamy sentiment and used the pattern of the paper as my guide to create a stitched border.


This card really features the stitched rectangle dies. I have been using them on lots of projects but for this card I tried to make them the star of the show.  I cut each size from a different color then stacked them rotating every other one at a diagonal.


I used the new Violet's ABCs for my sentiment.


This card uses the stitched rectangles to create mats like normal.  I added a little more interested by stamping the dashed lines from Argyle Backdrops to the lightest blue panel and added the tiny hearts in all the diamonds.


The image and sentiment are from the Snow Day set.  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn Blog for more projects using these two featured products today!
