Quilted Rainbow Thanks

The newest Lawn Fawn release is finally available so today I have a new video tutorial using some of the new products.


I really love the Quilted Backdrop die and have wanted to make it the focus of a card ever since I first saw it.  I felt that the best way to do this was just to add some small die cuts to enhance the quilt design.


I kept the base of the card simple with white on white so that the colors of my flowers would pop.  The flowers are cut using the small flowers included in the Spring Sprig die set.

Check out the video to see just how I created this card.  You can watch it here or on my YouTube Channel. The Lawn Fawn Glue Tube and Marvy Jewel Picker made quick work of assembly.  I also have a quick tip for using a mini lint roller for cleaning out small die cut pieces from intricate dies like this quilted backdrop.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Lawn Fawn February Inspiration & Release Week: Hay There

Hello! Today is the last day of Lawn Fawn Release week and all these new products you have been waiting for will be avaliable for purchase starting tomorrow! For our last day we are featuring the fun set Hay There.  I think these little farm animals are just too cute!


I created another pivot pop-up card with a simple scene on the front and then the pop up with the rest of the "herd" on the inside.  I colored all my images with colored pencils.  The blue sky background for the pop up is white cardstock inked with distress inks. The inside sentiment is stamped in the new ink color forget-me-not.


I also have one of my litte scene jars using the same set, created for the Lawn Fawn Creativation booth.  I built up the foam underneath to create a smaller hill in the background for my barn.


I also added some little felt clouds on wires in the background as well.  All the stamped pieces are hot glued to toothpicks then placed into the foam below the moss covering.


Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more Hay There projects.  Again all the new products will be avaliable for purchase tomorrow on 2/22.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Lawn Fawn February Inspirtion & Release Week: Easter Party + Easter Egg Frames & Stackables

Hello! Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn Release week. Only a couple more days left until the new release will be avaliable for purchase.  Today I have a fun little shaped card using the new Easter Egg dies and the new Easter Party stamp set.


I used the largest Outside-In Easter Egg Stackables to cut the Perfectly Plaid Spring pattern papers for the background and grass.  I also cut the card base with the same die and scored the back one and adhered them together at the top to create an egg shaped card.  I inked the edges of the grass with freshly cut grass ink. I colored my little kid dressed like a flower with copic markers and added some shimmer to her petals.


The sentiment is from Happy Happy Happy Add-on Family set paired with the "spring" from the Easter Party set.  I added the largest Easter Egg Frame to create a nice finished edge and finished it off with some irridecent nuvo sequins.

Lawn Fawn February Inspiration & Release Week: Perfectly Plaid Spring + Stitched Basket

Hello! Lawn Fawn Release week continues today with the newest installment of the Perfectly Plaid collections, Perfectly Plaid Spring.  My project today uses these new spring plaids with the new Stitched Basket.


I cut the basket base from two different plaids. I used the large 12x12 pattern for the outside pink part of the basket and the yellow plaid from the smaller 6x6 pad for the inside. I just layered the yellow inside after getting the basket formed. I cut the grass from the smaller green plaid from the 6x6 as well.  I think that mixing the 12x12 patterns and the 6x6 patterns give the papers more contrast from each other.  I added some solid butterflies and purple Easter grass.  Unfortunately, my basket is empty...but the Easter candy is showing up in stores so I can fill it soon. ;)

Be sure to stop by the Lawn Fawn blog for more Perfectly Plaid Spring and Stitched Basket projects. Thanks for stopping by today.

Lawn Fawn February Inspiration & Release Week: Some Bunny + Happy Easter Line Border

Hello! Today for Lawn Fawn Release week I have a couple projects featuring the new set Some Bunny as well as the Happy Easter Line Border die.


I created a grid of die cut squares on a Quilted Backdrop panel and placed some carrots in 9 of them.  I stmped the bunnies on Vanilla Malt cardstock with Doe ink and just colored their ears and cheeks with colored pencil.


The sentiment is stamped on a Fancy Folded Banner.  I added a few flowers in the center square to fill in behind the banner.


For my second card I mixed some Perfectly Plaid Spring and Gotta Get Gingham papers and seperated them with the Happy Easter Line border cut from Mermaid cardstock. I cut the carrots from the orange plaid from Perfectl Plaid fall using the carrot die from the Stitched Garden Border die set.


I used a little Meadow Sparkles lawn trimmings to "tie" the carrots to the top.  My bunny is again stamped in Doe ink on Vanilla Malt cardstock.  I added some liquid aplique to his tail to make it puffy and added the little hop lines by using a stamp from the Happy Easter set, using soot ink.

Lawn Fawn February Inspiration & Release Week: Scalloped Treat Box Spring House Add-On

Hello! Today for Lawn Fawn Release week I have a project with the next installment of add-on dies for the Scalloped Treat Box, the Spring House Add-On.


I wanted to keep my spring house box pretty simple.  I know you can get very detailed with all the elements in the die set but sometimes it's nice to keep it simple.  I added the roof with really rainbow paper and cut the door from white cardstock.  I also cut the door with brown Knock on Wood paper and cut the door part off to create a frame in a different color than my door. The grass is cut with the grassy border die and I wrapped it around the whole box.  I cut the fences from white cardstock but decided I wanted the door to stand out so I colored the fence pieces with a copic marker. Finally for the flowers I cut 3 sets of flowers and centers but cut two of the flowers off one of the pieces to create the flower arch over the door.

Lawn Fawn February Inspiration & Release Week: Pivot Pop-Up

Hello! Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn Release Week! Today we are focusing on the new Pivot Pop-up Die.

I made a galaxy background blending distress inks and then added some water and gold watercolor splatters.  After everything was dry I die cut the outside in stars from the galaxy panel.  I also cut the same stars from Sunflower cardstock and stamped my sentiment and tiny stars in black ink.  I mounted the panel and inlaid the stars onto a card base made from Blue Jay cardstock.  I also added some tiny stars stamped with Delicata gold ink and hand drew some gold tie strings to make them look like they hang from the top.


For the inside of the cards I repeated the same galaxy ink blending after I had embossed the constellations using glow-in-the-dark embossing powder for the top panel and pivot pop up panels.  For the bottom panel I used Noble Fir cardstock and blended on distress oxide inks in broken china and cracked pistachio using a finger tip blender to create the look of the earth below.  The stars and the moon are gold embossed on Sunflower cardstock and I mounted some of the stars on clear acetate strips off the back of the pop up panel.  Because there is not much clearance when opening and closing the pivot pop up card any elements sticking off the top of the panel, espeically on the right, need to be flexable.  The acetate help with this problem.


Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more pivot pop up cards.  As well as a video where Kelly recreated this card.  All new products will be avaliable February 22.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Get Cracking On Christmas: Sparkling Snowflakes

*** Click HERE for today's Lawn Fawn Release Week Post ***

Hello! Welcome back to the next Get Cracking on Christmas feature!  Each month Jenn, Cherion and I are challenging ourselves to make and post a holiday card in an effort get a head start on Christmas cards and to inspire others to as well. This month we are welcoming some new guests to this little Christmas inspiration post.  Today we have Libby & Caryn joining us as well and I will list links to all their blogs at the end of this post. 


I used a Simon Says Stamp snowflake stencil that unfortunately is no longer available, with some white embossing paste on cream cardstock.  After removing the stencil and before the paste had time to dry I dusted it with iridescent white glitter.  


After the paste was completely dry I trimmed down the panel to clean up the edges and mounted it on a cream card base for a tone on tone mat. The sentiment is die cut from a copper paper with the Merry die from Concord & 9th.  I cut multiple layers of cream cardstock with the merry die and stacked them with the copper on top to create a thick die cut sentiment.  The banner is cut from a shimmery white cardstock and I embossed the "wishes" part of my sentiment with rose gold embossing powder.  I finished off with some Snowfall sequins from Neat & Tangled sprinkled around.


Be sure to check out Jenn, Cherion, Libby and Caryn's blogs (linked below) for more holiday inspiration.  We hope you will join us as we get Cracking on Christmas one card at a time. 

Thank you for stopping by today!
