Lawn Fawn – Thanksgiving Feast

Hello! Fall is definitely in the air here in the Pacific Northwest. The leaves are falling, and the sun is that much lower in the horizon. With the upcoming holidays in mind, I created a card with some of the new release items from Lawn Fawn. My card features their Forest Feast set.

Lawn Fawn Thanksgiving Feast

I stamped and Copic-colored the animals and their accessories. I used a combination of inks on the background panel, which I embossed with the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die. Initially, I planned to use cardstock for the grass, but ended up adding Distress ink. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI to position the stamp.

Lawn Fawn – Happy Hello

Hello! This past week, I saw the first leaf of the season fall, and I have heard that Starbucks will soon be serving Pumpkin Spice Lattes! I figured I needed to share any remaining summer-themed cards before we move completely into the fall and holiday seasons! My card features the Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You set.

Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You

I stamped and Copic-colored the mermaid images, cutting them with their corresponding dies. I used Distress Oxide inks to stamp the underwater foliage. The background was created using the smooshing technique on Canson watercolor paper.

Lawn Fawn – Summer S’more Scene

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a square, CAS, summer/outdoor-themed card featuring supplies from Lawn Fawn. Summer seems to be marching along quickly!

This took a while to put together. I tried a number of different die-cut scenes for the background (such as the Lawn Fawn Mountain Borders) but in the end, I decided simpler was better.

Lawn Fawn S'more Scene

I stamped the images from the Love You S’more set with the TE Chocolate Truffle ink pad and colored them with Copic markers. I cut the background scene with the Forest Border die and the largest circle in the Large Stitched Circle Stackables set. The sentiment, one of my favorites, is from the Argyle Backdrops set. I cut the stamped sentiment with the smallest die in the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables set. The background, cut with the largest die in the Stitched Square Stackables – Large set, was dry-embossed with one of the folders in the We R Memory Keepers Wood Grain package. The card measures 4 1/2″ square. It’s taken me some time to amass a collection of Lawn Fawn Stackables, but I really like how well they work together and the many different sizes available.

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.
