I'm back again with another day of Lawn Fawn May inspiration week! Today I am sharing projects using the new So Jelly min set and Ocean Waves border dies. I must say the new So Jelly mini set is just too cute!
I used one of the Let's Polka Mermaid notecards as my card base then used the stitched squares to cut some solid card stock to create a focal panel. I colored the starfish and jellyfish with copics and cut them with the coordinating dies.
For the sentiment I stamped it one a yellow banner but then used a silver Kirarina Wink metallic pen to trace over the letters. I also used a Aqua Blue Kirarina Wink pen to draw in the shiny bubbles at the top.
I have been using my scalloped border dies to make waves for awhile now so I'm super excited to now have some perfect Lawn Fawn style wave dies, in three sizes no less! I love these wonky waves! I wanted to create a nautical style card so I picked out some dark woodgrain paper as my background. I used the new Stitched Oval dies to create the frame and the whale is colored with colored pencils blended with gamsol.
I finished this card off with some Liberty twine, white pico embellisher dots and the scripty thanks wood veneer as my sentiment. It is hard to see in the photos but I added a layer of clear Wink of Stella glitter to the wood die cut. Stop by the Lawn Fawn blog for more projects with So Jelly and the Ocean Waves dies.

Hello! I'm back with more new Lawn Fawn as inspiration week continues. Today we are sharing projects with the new Milk Carton die and Stitched Borders dies so I have two new projects to share.
So how cute is this Milk Carton die? Adorable! So I automatically thought this needed to be decorated with some milk and cookies since it is after all a milk carton. I used the new Ocean Wave border dies to make some "milk" for my cookie jar and grumpy cookie to float in.
I punched a hole in the top for the straw and used a small hole punch on the top so the carton could be tied at the top and easy to open. I also used the stitched borders on the little tag tied to the top. On a side note, Matt and I had a milk and cookies theme for our wedding 4 years ago. If I had had this die who knows what I would have done with it back then!
For my second project I used the stitched border dies to create a wrap for this little succulent jar to turn it into a sweet little gift.
Here is a close up of the cross stitch detail cut by the die. There are 4 different stitching details included in this border die set. Check out the Lawn Fawn blog to see more Milk Carton and Stitched Border die projects!

It's Lawn Fawn Inspiration & Release week! You will love the new Lawn Fawn products that will all be available starting June 4. Today the Design Team is sharing projects using the new set Party Animal. These little critters are super cute and ready to party!
I colored the bear and little birds with copics and used the coordinating dies to cut the images out. I used the Pint-Sized patterns Beachside papers for my card base and picture panel.
I stamped the sentiment on a solid piece of pink card stock to match the birthday cake and hand cut the fishtail ends. Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn blog to see more projects made with the Party Animal set, and I'm sure there is a bunch of giveaways going on all week there as well.
