Get Cracking On Christmas: Joyful Wishes

Hello! It's time for our monthly Get Cracking on Christmas post. The idea behind Get Cracking on Christmas sprung from the fact that many of us crafters who work in the industry with stamp companies seem to be busy with other things come the holiday season that we never seem to have time to make holiday projects.  So once a month we are making a holiday card so by the end of the year we are guaranteed to have a handful of holiday cards ready for the season and we will have given our holiday goodies some love. :) Today I'm joined by my friends Jenn and Cheiron sharing some holiday projects.


For my card today I played with some alcohol inks using Jennifer's method of applying them smoothly. I used a combination of Rangers regular alcohol inks and the new pearl inks, whose shimmer is hard to catch on camera.  I also used some regular alcohol and splattered it on for some texture.  I added the small gold splatters by using a brush and Jacquard gold alcohol ink.  I then cut the piece with the Pretty Pink Posh layered tree dies.


I used white woodgrain cardstock for the background and Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust sparkle cardstock for the ground. The sentiment is from Joy to the Woods and is white embossed on Chili Pepper cardstock. I added some gold and glitter washi tapes to the banner and behind it and cut the ornaments from some shimmery red paper. Be sure to visit Jenn and Cheiron to see their holiday cards as well. Please join us as we create holiday projects and share them using the hashtag #getcrackingonchristmas.

Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Lattice Backdrop

Hello! Today is the last day of March Lawn Fawn Inspiration week. Today I have some projects using the Lattice Backdrop die.


This card has the lattice backdrop cut from Narwhal cardstock layered over an Apricot card base to make a beautiful pattern card as a base for my little spring scene.


I made the focal panel with a Spiffy Speckles blue sky and green grass and used the sweet little animals from Butterfly Kisses to make my little scene.


My other card is a standard size A2 card folded in half. This allowed me to fold the lattic backdrop so that it wraps around the entire card.  I colored a piece of vellum with copics to create a rainbow and layered that on the card base behind the black die cut lattice.  I wanted to keep it simple so I added the stitched banner from fancy wavy banners with a wavy sentiment.


I made this card this side because I liked the proportions with the pop-up butterfly inside.  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more Lattice Backdrop projects.

Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Wavy Sayings + Fancy Wavy Banners

Hello! Today for Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week we are featuring the new Wavy Sayings and Simple Wavy Banners and Fancy Wavy Banners.  These are some great staples to have in your stash and I have been using them constantly in my cards lately.


This card has the folded Fancy Wavy Banner at the bottom with one of the best Wavy Sayings in the set! I colored my rainbow stitched umbrella with Tombow markers on Bristol paper and blended it with water.  I kept the rest of the card grey and white neutral so that the umbrella really popped.


I used the grey woodgrain cardstock for the card base and flicked white metallic watercolor to coordinate with my white sparkle raindrops and look like rain in the background and added the grey pattern paper from Spring Fling to the center as a focal panel. I think this would be a fun card to send to someone who is feeling down to brighten their spirits.

Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn Blog for more projects with Wavy Sayings and Simple Wavy Banners and Fancy Wavy Banners.  Also, this card is part of today's intro video.

Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Tiny Gift Box Chick & Duck Add-On + Stitched Flower and Frame

Hello! Welcome back for another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week! Today we are featuring the new Chick & Duck add-on die for the tiny gift box and the new stitched flower dies.


Because the new add-on is a chick and a duck I had make a Friends inspired card.  Hopefully you are all familiar with Friends, it is one of my favorite shows ever.  I made my card look like Monica & Rachel's apartment door using one of the mini picture frames cut from sunflower cardstock on a tall purple card.


I white embossed the sentiment and heart onto vellum using Harold's ABCs and cut it them out with the A Birdie Told Me dies.


For my second card today I used the Stitched Flower Frame and Outside-In Stitched Flower to create a simple shaker card.


Rather than adding a sentiment on the outside I kept it simple and just added a pink heart so that I could use this card for any occasion. Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn Blog for more projects with today's featured products.  You can also see how I created the flower shaker card as part of the the Stitched Flower Frame & Outside-In Stitched Flower intro video.
