Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Wish You Were Here

Hello! I'm back with another project for Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week.  Today we are featuring the new set Wish You Were Here.  This is a great set for scrapbooking especially if you like to travel. But it also makes great cards too. :)


I may have had a slight moment of crazy when I thought it would be good idea to paper piece all the states together.  But I stuck with it and like how it turned out in the end.  I used the 3x4 stitched journaling card die to cut a piece of kraft card stock.  Then I stamped it with brown ink using Woodgrain backdrops and inked it with tea dye distress ink to darken it up.  I cut the two smaller stitched clouds from the Spring Showers dies and covered them using my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen which is a little hard to see in the photograph but just a bit of shine.  I used the Let's Polka papers for the paper piecing and the striped background.  The background piece has some distress ink on the edges to define them a bit.  And, I finished it off with some of the new Cloudy Lawn Trimmings Twine.

Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn Blog for more projects with this fun set!

I just got this stamp set and the first thing I thought when I saw how tiny those states are that you cut them all out! I had to come back to your blog post to give you more props!
