Toot your own horn! (Lawn Fawn summer release week)

Hi there!

Lawn Fawn's summer release week continues with a closer look at some add-on dies for the Shadow Box Card.

I used the Theater Add-On set to create this fun card:

Isn't it too cute? It's a really simple design, and came together so easily, but looks really impressive.

I colored 3 of the musical critters from Critter Concert, and framed them out using the curtains from the Theater Add-On set.

That owl playing the violin is so adorable.

I love that the whole thing folds flat and fits into a standard envelope.

I hope you like what I created today! Be sure to check out the LF blog this morning for a lot more inspiration - click!

Have a colorful day! (Neat and Tangled)

Hi there!

This is my second post of the day - if you're looking for Lawn Fawn's chubby manatees, scroll down!

I have a sweet card to share, using a set from the newest Neat and Tangled release, Paint Night.

have a colorful day! (Neat and Tangled)


I did some primary-colored cards using this set for the release week - like THIS ONE, so I wanted to do something more soft and girly for this card.

Instead of using one of the images meant to fit into the canvas, I used copic markers to draw stripes in soft rainbow colors and did my best to blend them together.

The girl's apron was colored a soft pink, and I drew in a "paint line" onto the tip of the paintbrush and colored the tip blue. The paint splashes give some movement to the images.

I stamped the greeting onto the easel, and finished off the card with a fun patterned paper.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

Manatee-rific (Lawn Fawn summer release week)

Hi there!

Lawn Fawn's summer release week continues with these cute and very fat manatees. ha. They are ready for a shell-abration!

Manatee-rific (Lawn Fawn summer release week)

I colored and die-cut a Manatee-rific couple. A little flower on the girl, a shell in the boy's hand... and they are frolicking in the underwater waves (cut with the new Stitched Waves Borders!)

Manatee-rific (Lawn Fawn summer release week)

To bring interest to the waves, I cut them out of a paper from the Really Rainbow pad, and did some sponging at the top of each wave to add dimension.

I white-heat-embossed the sentiment into a wavy banner, from the Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On.

Just a little note (Lawn Fawn summer release week!)

Hi there!

Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn's summer release week! We're showing off the cutest band of critters with Critter Concert:

just a little note (Lawn Fawn summer release week!)

I paired the bear from Critter Concert with the sheet-music-holding bunny from Coaster Critters and then die-cut a few bars of Little Music Notes.

I framed out the music notes using the scalloped rectangle die from the Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On die (more of that coming soon!) I used a light blue ink to give a subtle wash of color to make sure that the music notes really popped from behind.

On the card base, I die-cut a kraft layer of the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop.

You are sublime (Lawn Fawn summer release week!)

Hi there!

Lawn Fawn's summer release week continues with a first look at You Are Sublime, a few underwater, scuba diver-themed set:

You are sublime (Lawn Fawn summer release week!)

I also used a new Porthole frame, so that it looks like you are standing inside the sub, peeking through the window into the ocean scene outside.

I colored the scuba diver in a fun navy, and all of the fish around him in bright colors to stand out against the ocean waves (the stitched waves are a new die set too!)

You are sublime (Lawn Fawn summer release week!)

I added the sentiment onto a banner flag (new as well!) and did some shading around the edges of the grey card base.

Reveal wheel (Lawn Fawn summer release)

Hi there!

Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn's summer release week. You're gonna flip over today's showcase of the Reveal Wheel. The die set includes everything you need to make a very fun interactive card:

I used Coaster Critters again, because they are so cute! Do you spy the arrow on the side? and the open window with the word TERRIFIC inside?

Spin the wheel, and you can reveal other words!

reveal wheel (Lawn Fawn summer release)

Amazing, Terrific, Fantastic, Super!

ps, I was supposed to take a video of the card spinning, but Maia got her grubby little hands on it and now I can't find it anywhere. She insisted on this being her birthday card.
