Lawn Fawn August Inspiration & Release Week: How You Bean? Candy Corn Add-On


Hello! I'm back again with another card for Lawn Fawn Inspiration week.  Today I'm playing with the new How You Bean? Candy Corn Add-On set.

HowYouBeanCandyCorn_LargeWreath_ChariMoss1

This set is designed to be use with the original How You Bean? set by adding the candy to the jar in that set, but I had the idea to use it a little differently and create a halloween candy corn wreath.  I used the large wreath die to cut black cardstock and black glitter cardstock to create my wreath.

I used tiny candy corn from Costume Party set along with the candy corn from How You Bean? to decorate the wreath.  I also added some purple gems on the yellow Knock on Wood background for a little more shine and color.

Check out the Lawn Fawn Blog for more projects with this set as well as mini set Pumpkin Spice!

Lawn Fawn August Inspiration & Release Week: Shadow Box Card

Hello! Lawn Fawn Inspiration week continues today with the new shadow box card.  This is a fun new die set that helps you create fun shadow box scenes.

I went for something a little different and tried turning my shadow box vertically.  To do this I abandoned the interior elements you would normally use for the inside of the box and instead used one of the pop-up dies to create the mechanism to hold the scarecrow inside the box.

I cut my background paper with a notch to fit around the pop-up piece and added some distress oxide ink stamped cornstalks. The grass is also colored with distress oxide ink and covers up the pop-up mechanism.  I colored my scarecrow and pumpkins from Happy Harvest with colored pencils and added a banner sentiment at the very bottom of my shadow box.

Lawn Fawn August Inspiration & Release Week: Costume Party, Village Border + Trick Or Treat Border



Hello!
It's Lawn Fawn Inspiration week! Time to get in the mood for Fall.  Today we are featuring the new stamp set Costume Party which is full of kids in cute costumes.  We are also featuring the new trick or treat border die and the village border die which I absolutely love!

I really love that there is a roll of toilet paper included with in the images of the Costume Party set, so the kids on my card are up to a little mischief. I cut the new stitched hillside backdrop from black card stock for the ground and cut off the back hill.  I also layered a few of the largest die cut rectangle frames behind it to create a little dimension between the foreground and background.  The birch trees are cut from storm cloud cardstock and create a perfect place for these mischievous kids to hide.

The "toilet paper" in the trees is micropore tape folded over then cut to thinner strips.  Finally my sentiment is a combination of stamps from Happy, happy, happy and the new Happy, happy, happy add-on sets.

For my second card I created a tone on tone background using the trick or treat border die.  The village border is cut from black glitter paper creating a shimmery border along the bottom.  The sentiment is created with Happy, happy, happy again (I just really love that happy) and a partial sentiment stamp from Spooktacular. I finished it off with a little ghost and bat that are part of the Scalloped Treat Box Halloween House Add-on die set. I added google eyes of course because that makes everything more fun.

I have 5 cards to share using this kit. 

CardKit1

I really loved the rose paper in the paper pad so I used it as a background and added all my other elements along the bottom so that the rose is the star of the show.  I added some glitter to the image for some more interest and to tie into the gold glitter tape along the bottom.  My second card uses the tape on some of the color cardstock then I used the included dies to cut the hearts.

CardKit2

For these cards I did some stamping on the pattern paper and embellished with some of the cut out pieces from the set and the colorful enamel dots.

CardKit3

For my last card I used the fancy frame die to cut it from the included gold paper.  I thought the small rose paper really went well with this style of the frame. I embellished with black enamel dots to help bring out the sentiment.
