Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS “just because” card created with a combination of Lawn Fawn products.
I stamped the fox images from Mom + Me, colored them with Copic markers, and cut them with their corresponding dies.
I recently bought a rainbow pack of Lawn Fawn cardstock, along with several packages of neutrals. I cut the card base from Paper Bag cardstock using the Woodgrain Backdrop. I cut the background for the scene from Mermaid cardstock using the Cloud Backdrop. (I absolutely love these backdrop dies!) I then used a square die to cut the cloud piece to the size I needed. I cut the grass from Noble Fir cardstock with one of the Meadow Borders dies and the same square die. I framed the scene with white cardstock cut with a die in the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Square Stackables set. I heat-embossed the sentiment on Black Licorice cardstock and cut it with a die in the Extra Sentiment Banners set.
Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m sharing a CAS Valentine’s card created with Lawn Fawn supplies.
I stamped and colored the birds and envelope from Love Letters, and cut the items with their corresponding dies. I stamped the sentiment on to the white cardstock base and added panels cut from Lawn Fawn cardstock with the Woodgrain Backdrop die. I added hearts cut with the Taylored Expressions Little Bits – Hearts die.
Hello! Today, I am sharing a birthday card created with four of the Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Animals – Cat, Bear, Panda, and Dog.
After die-cutting and assembling the animals, I inked a panel with several Distress Oxide inks and cut it with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Cloud Backdrop for the background. I inked another panel and cut it with one of the Arched Stitching Borders. The arched border covers the bottoms of the animals. I stamped the border with a sentiment in the Lawn Fawn Grand Greetings set (now retired).
I can’t wait to create another card with one (or more) of the Picture Book Animals!
Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS winter-themed card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Winter Bunny stamp. This is a stamp I have had for several years and never stamped or colored.
I stamped the image and colored him (her?) with Copic markers and colored pencils. I created a scene with a snow hill cut with one of the dies in this set. I used an older Lawn Fawn paper for the snow-filled sky and a sentiment in the Critters in the Arctic set.
To give the small image more presence on the card, I cut a frame from Knit Picky patterned paper with a die in the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Square set. I recently noticed that I am using a lot of red frames on these winter-themed cards! I used the Stitched Woodgrain die for the card base to add subtle texture.
I am entering the current Lawn Fanatics challenge. I was inspired by the red, the hearts (there are small hearts in the Knit Picky paper), and the winter scene.
Hello! Today, I am sharing another card featuring the Echo Park Balloons Stencil, provided to me by Paper-Garden.ca. I recently shared a CAS birthday card with this stencil and wanted to try the stencil with colored embossing paste.
I first stamped and colored a few of the Wild For You animals (this is an adorable set) and cut them with their corresponding dies.
I cut a cardstock panel with the largest rectangle die in this set and applied colored embossing paste through some of the stencil on to the cardstock. I colored the embossing paste with Claudine Hellmuth paints, which I bought several years ago. Once the panel was dry, I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink; the embossed balloons resist the ink.
I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment on a piece of Lawn Fawn Noble Fir cardstock, which I then cut with one of the Meadow Borders dies.
Hello. Today, I am sharing a CAS holiday scene created with Lawn Fawn supplies. I had in mind a town in the American Southwest (think Taos or Santa Fe) while making my card, hence the mountain background.
All of the colored cardstock is from Memory Box. I used the last of my red for the Village Border. I cut the Stitched Hillside Backdrop Landscape before stamping it with one of the sentiments in Merry Messages on the MISTI. I added a snowbank on the left-hand side to cover up the section of the Village Border, which would have been exposed.
I haven’t participated in a Lawn Fawn challenge in a long time, but checked out the one which just started and decided to join in!
Hello! Today I am sharing a CAS card featuring one of the images from the Newton’s Nook Designs Snow Day stamp set (now retired). I have never before stamped any images in this set (and I purchased it in 2013!).
I stamped and heat-embossed the dog image on Canson Montval watercolor paper and colored it with a combination of Distress Inks and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.
Once the image was dry, I cut it with a die in the Stitched Square Stackables – Large set. I heat-embossed a sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments set and cut it with a die in the Everyday Sentiment Banners set. I used the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die to create the card background. Once assembled, I realized there was a critical missing detail – snowflakes! I used the Snow Caps set to die-cut snowflakes from the watercolor paper.
Hello. Today, I am sharing a tag created for The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017 – Day 12 for which Lawn Fawn was the guest. All of the inspiration tags were terrific! My tag was most influenced by those shown by Elena Roussakis and Lindsey M-p.
I stamped the Toboggan Together deer images on Arches Hot Press Watercolor Paper with VersaFine and colored them with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Dark Brown (47), Kuretake Gansai Tambi Brown (46) and Kuretake Gansai Tambi Light Brown (44).
Once dry, I cut the images with their corresponding dies. I colored Canson Watercolor Paper with Broken China Distress Oxide ink and Distress Oxide Lucky Clover ink. Once the paper was dry, I cut the tag background from the blue with the largest die in the Stitched Circle Tags set. I cut the Forest Border from the green. I cut the snow banks using the Stitched Hillside Backdrop Landscape die, which I also cut with the largest die in the Stitched Circle Tags set. I heat-embossed the Merry Messages sentiment with Geranium Red embossing powder.
I used Peppermint twine to finish off the tag. For such a simple tag, there were a lot of steps! The best part – this tag is already adorning a wrapped gift!
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS holiday card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Winter Sparrows stamp set. It has been drizzling here all day and it is dark outside – a little color was in order!
I have had this stamp for a couple of years and never used it (looks like it was released in 2013!). I colored the birds with Copic markers and cut the images with their corresponding dies. The branches are stamped with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink.
I used the Stitched Woodgrain backdrop for the card base and for the circle in the center. The bokeh/snow patterned paper is from an older Lawn Fawn pad. I die-cut the sentiment with Cole’s ABCs from Taylored Expressions Watermelon cardstock. (I tried a more traditional red cardstock but it just didn’t work with the brightly-colored birds.)
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS holiday card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Happy Mail mailbox decorated with the Mini Wreath.
Back in July, I created a warm-weather version with the mailbox and couldn’t resist dressing it for the holidays! I was delighted to find that the Mini Wreath fit.
I used Memory Box paper for the envelope/bow, the solid blue background, and the mailbox, along with patterned paper from an older Lawn Fawn pad for the card base and the wreath. I stamped the die-cut envelope with an image in the Love Letters set.
