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.
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.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS card featuring supplies from Lawn Fawn.
The Happy Howloween set includes lots of fun images for a fall scene, but I wanted to use the dogs in a summer scene. I stamped and heat-embossed the Happy Howloween dogs on a variety of watercolor papers and started coloring them with Distress Inks; in part, I was experimenting with which colors and watercolor papers I liked best. The ones shown were colored with Gathered Twigs on Arches (left) and Distress Oxide Vintage Photo on Strathmore (left).
I colored Canson watercolor paper with Distress Inks for the tree trunk, foliage and grass borders, and once dry, I cut those pieces with the Leafy Tree Backdrop – Landscape, Meadow Borders, and Grassy Border dies. For the background, I applied Distress Oxide Broken China on Canson watercolor paper using the smooshing method. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Baby set with VersaFine ink. To create the frame I cut Arc Crafts White Birch with the largest die in the Stitched Square Stackables – Large set and then with a smaller square die included in a Lil’ Inker set I own. The card measures 4 1/2″ square.
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.
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.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS, tropical-themed card featuring supplies from Lawn Fawn.
The crab and palms were cut with dies in the Palm Trees set. I heat-embossed the sentiment from Hello Baby on a sand dune (I really like the simplicity of the typeface of this sentiment), cut with a die in the Stitched Hillside Border set. I primarily used Stampin’ Up cardstock, although I pulled out Memory Box cardstock for the palm fronds, as the other green cardstock I tried didn’t provide enough punch (I get obsessed with green cardstock shades/tints on a regular basis!). I cut the background with a 4 1/4″ square die from Lil’ Inker Designs.
Hello and Happy July! Today, I’m sharing a CAS “just because” card featuring supplies from Lawn Fawn.
I had more layers on my design originally (I was planning to heat-emboss the sentiment on a strip of green grass), but decided I was just cluttering up the card (plus I wasn’t using green anywhere else).
Hello! Today, I’m sharing two CAS cards featuring the fun and versatile Lawn Fawn Narwhal and Friends die set.
For my first card, I drew inspiration from the movie poster for The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. In the movie, Bill Murray’s character, Steve Zissou, wears a red beanie hat. I created a beanie-wearing sea lion with the die set and heat-embossed a sentiment from the Mermaid for You set on the die-cut wave.
For my second card, I created an Orca whale with the die set and added a Seattle Skyline (die purchased at Impress) to the background.
I cut the sentiment with the Cole’s ABCs set.
Supplies: Stampin’ Up cardstock
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!).
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.
Supplies: Love You S’More stamp set
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a Hello card created with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.
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.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a friendship card created with Lawn Fawn products.
I placed the skunk, which I colored with Copic markers, into a scene created with a combination of other Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. The flowers are included in the Flamingo Together and Mom + Me sets.

Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS Mother’s Day card featuring the Lawn Fawn Flower Power die set.
I made this card with my mother in mind, although she is no longer alive. She absolutely loved bright colors (no pastels for her)! And this style of flower reminds me of the bright flowers from the 1960s, which were seemingly everywhere! I cut the flowers, leaves, and flower centers from a variety of cardstock colors. I cut A LOT of flowers before choosing two shades of orange and two shades of pink. I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment (two separate stamps from the Lawn Fawn Mom + Me set) at the same time.
