Lawn Fawn Father’s Day Card

Hello! With Father’s Day just a few weeks away (how did it get to be almost June!), I’m sharing a Father’s Day card created with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

I created a forest/mountain scene with a trio of Copic-colored critters (not realistic at all!).

Lawn Fawn Father's Day Card

Stamping the Dad + Me sentiment on one of the Everyday Sentiment Banners made it easier for me to place the critters than if I had chosen to heat-emboss the sentiment on the forest panel. I used different Copic-combinations of browns for the critters so that they wouldn’t all be colored the same.

Lawn Fawn Flamingo Hello

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a Hello card created with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

Lawn Fawn Flamingo Together

I stamped and colored the Flamingo Together images with Copic markers. I added the colored flamingos, cut with their corresponding dies, to a panel on which I combined Distress Inks using the Claritystamp Brushes. I cut the letters with Cole’s ABCs from white cardstock and foam.

To finish off the card, I used a die in the Scalloped Rectangle Stackables set to create a flirty frame which I felt went well with the feminine theme of the card.

Taylored Expressions Farm Scene with Copic-colored Chickens

Hello! Today, I am sharing a farm-themed, friendship card featuring Taylored Expressions Happy Hens Stamp & Die Combo, along with farm-themed die-cuts to fill out the scene.

Taylored Expressions Farm Scene

I colored the stamped hens with Copic markers and colored pencils (they crack me up!). I dry-embossed the hill with the Chicken Wire embossing folder and added the assembled farm-themed, die-cuts, created with the Little Bits – BarnLittle Bits – Windmill and Little Bits – Tractor die sets.

Take It Easy – Lawn Fawn Hang in There

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card featuring Lawn Fawn’s Hang in There stamp set. Who can resist this cute sloth?!

Lawn Fawn Hang in There

I stamped and colored the images, using Copic markers and colored pencils. I added the cut images to a background colored with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. The heat-embossed sentiment was cut with a die in the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables set. I used a Taylored Expressions dry-embossing folder for some texture.

Hello – Avery Elle Woodland Wonders Owl

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card featuring several Avery Elle sets. And yes, I did just post another owl card! I decided that I’d feature owls all week!

Avery Elle Owl

I Copic-colored the owl and butterfly from Woodland Wonders placing the owl on a tree cut with the Tree die set and embossed with a Stampin’ Up folder. (We have a lot of trees that look like this in our neighborhood, especially after an abundance of winter storms.) The card background was colored with Distress Inks, and I added ink to the dry-embossed tree as well so that the dry-embossing would stand out. I needed something to fill that blue sky, so I added clouds cut with the Simple Puffy Cloud Frames set. Finally, I cut several of the Hello sentiment with the Sentimental die set and glued them together for depth.

Whale Hello – Product Mash Up

Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card featuring a combination of products! Here in the Pacific Northwest we’re saying “Hello” to the whales returning to the area (we take whales very seriously in these parts!).

Whale Hello

I stamped the background with one of the stamps in the Wonky Backdrops set with several inks in my collection (I didn’t mind if the colors were mixed a bit). I colored the stamped whales from the Avery Elle Whale Hello set with both Copic markers and colored pencils and cut them with their coordinating die set. I used the largest die in the Lawn Cuts Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables set to cut out the background. The HELLO is a wooden stamp in my collection which I used for a heat-embossed sentiment cut with the smallest banner in the Lawn Cuts Extra Sentiment Banners set.

Lawn Fawn – Meow You Doin’?

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card featuring the Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin’ stamp set.

Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin'?

I stamped and colored the images with Copic markers. My family had a Siamese cat named “Cocoa” when I was young (we’ve since had many other cats of varying breeds). These images are fun because you can color the cats as any number of breeds.

I added the cats and their accessories to a background dry-embossed with a Taylored Expressions folder.

Did Someone Say Birthday?

Hello! Today I’m sharing a birthday card created with Taylored Expressions supplies showcasing the Paw-some stamp & die combo. There are multiple birthdays on our family’s horizon!

Taylored Expressions Paw-some Birthday

I created the background scene with Build a Scene – Rolling HillsBuild a Scene – Farm Fence and the Build a Doghouse set. I cut the dog house from cardstock dry-embossed with the Lots of Dots embossing folder. I stamped, colored and cut the dog and birdies using the Paw-some stamp & die combo. I stamped one of the set’s sentiments on the card background sky.

It’s a Birthday Party – Lawn Fawn Party Animals

Hello! I’m sharing a birthday card created with Lawn Fawn supplies, namely the Party Animal stamp set (one of my favorites).

Lawn Fawn Party Animals

I stamped and colored with Copic markers the critters, birds, balloons and cake, then cut the images with their corresponding dies. The scene was created with both the Leafy Tree Backdrop – Landscape and the Stitched Hillside Pop-Up. I used the sentiment from Year One. I’m ready to join their party!
