Happy Purrthday! Wishing You A Pawsome Day (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone, as a massive fan of Lawn Fawn, I love it when they issue their new releases. Well, artistically, I love it but the wallet doesn’t love it quite as much. Haha! I’m sure many of you can relate! The latest release had so many wonderful things but sadly, I just couldn’t get them all. One item which nearly didn’t make the cut was the Meow You Doin’? set. I’m a dog person so tend to favour the dog images but there was something about this set I couldn’t resist. I’m so glad I got it as it is such a fun set to use. I have only just started to explore this set. Initially, I started to create with this set as part of my quest to design an 18th Birthday card (see this post) but I decided to go in a different direction for that project. Nevertheless, since the stamp set was out, I just had to create with it! The one thing I *wish* I had done differently? Purchased the coordinating die set! This is now on the Wish List! It would have made the putting together of some of these cards even simpler! The following set of four shows variations of the same theme but I hope you will see something in one of the designs which will inspire you.

Here’s the first card…

Wishing You A Beautiful Day (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone,

I haven’t been able to put the Bicycle Built for You stamp set by Lawn Fawn down – I love it! And, I still haven’t used it to create a scene using the bicycle! lol I thought the little girl from the card I shared yesterday may have been a little lonely on her own. So I had to create a new card with the little boy joining her. I decided they both could have their own swings but wouldn’t it be SUPER cute if there was a bench seat swing? Guess that’s another one for my wish list from Lawn Fawn!

Here’s the card…

Wishing You A Beautiful Day
Materials used: Stamps – Bicycle Built For You (Lawn Fawn); Dies – Grassy Border, Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape (Lawn Fawn); Cardstock – American Crafts, Knights Smooth; Ink – Tumbled Glass, Broken China (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Licorice (Lawn Fawn), Black Licorice Hybrid (My Favorite Things), Plastic Flamingo (Lawn Fawn); Copic Markers and Wink of Stella.

Don’t they look like they are having fun? Can you visualise a lovely rustic wooden swing seat with the cute couple sitting on it? Now I just need Lawn Fawn to design one for me. haha

Thank you for stopping by today!

Wishing you a beautiful birthday (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone,

When the Bicycle Built For You stamp set was released by Lawn Fawn recently, I, like a lot of people, was so excited about the idea of putting my little characters on the bike and creating all manner of scenes based around this concept. In fact, when I sat down to create with the set for this first time, that was my plan. Of course, things never go to plan, do they? lol And on this occasion, I am thankful they didn’t. You see, it crossed my mind that the bike flag looked a little like half of a swing set. I then got to thinking about how I would *love* it if Lawn Fawn released a rope swing to hang from their tree dies. How fun would that be! As they currently do not have this as part of their range, I had to create it for myself. They do have a tyre swing but it wasn’t quite what I had in mind (and I don’t believe the sizing was correct). It’s not the most perfect of swings as you can see and I really want to play around with this design some more but I really do love the concept. (Please, Lawn Fawn, create a swinging rope and swing set to go with the tree dies. Oh, and while I am at it, a large wooden bench to go under the tree too. I have plans! haha).

Here’s the card…

Wishing You A Beautiful Birthday
Materials used: Stamps – Bicycle Built For You (Lawn Fawn); Dies – Grassy Border, Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape (Lawn Fawn); Cardstock – American Crafts, Knights Smooth; Ink – Tumbled Glass, Broken China (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Licorice (Lawn Fawn), Black Licorice Hybrid (My Favorite Things), Plastic Flamingo (Lawn Fawn); Copic Markers and Wink of Stella.

For my second card, I wanted a fuller green tree look and to have the girl wear a brighter pink to more closely match the Plastic Flamingo ink I used for the sentiment. I also decided to brighten the sky and add a little more grass.

Finally, as you all know I *love* Lawn Fawn products so I was very excited to read they have started a new challenge blog called Lawn Fawnatics. I am going to enter the above card in this challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope these cards tempt you to look at your stamps a little differently instead of how they were originally intended to be used. As for me, I’m off to create some more! It might even be a third attempt at this card design as wouldn’t it look ever so pretty if there was a field of flowers at her feet…or at the very least a few flowers. lol Oh, and I’d like to try and position her so she is holding onto the swing. I didn’t mind that she wasn’t in my cards above as I thought she might be about to jump off. So fun! Okay, happy creating! Have a great day!

Happy Stamping!

You’re Dino-mite (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone,

I have been having sooo much fun colouring the adorable images from the Lawn Fawn stamp set “Critters from the Past“. I have started to turn the images into cards. Over the next couple of days, I will share some more of my card creations.

First up…

You're Dino-mite Materials used: Stamps - Critters from the Past (Lawn Fawn); Dies - Die-namics Blueprints 7, Pierced Rectangle Stax (MFT); Cardstock - Knights Smooth, Unknown; and Copic Markers.

I think this is what I would call a typical “Kylie” card – a nice little scene card. I really wanted to add an orange panel under the scene but I just couldn’t find/make the right shade. Decided to go with the coordinating purple instead. It is quite a soft card.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Stamping!

I Ruff You (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone,

Wow, that was an unintended and long break. Some days pass by so slowly but somehow the time still marches by rapidly. It’s a strange enigma.

When I sat at my craft table today, everything was (unsurprisingly) just as I had left it. lol I wondered why I hadn’t actually finished my card as it was pretty close to completion. Although having said that it still took me a while to put it all together. I really struggled over where to put the sentiment. In the end I just kept it super simple and I like how it fitted into the scene. I think the other ideas I had been toying with would have over-powered an already busy scene. It’s not the card I pictured in my imagination and I don’t love it at the moment but I am hoping that when I look at it in another day or so I will have a new appreciation for it.

Here’s the card…

I Ruff You Materials used: Stamps - Critters at the Dog Park, Critters on the Farm (Lawn Fawn); Dies - Chit Chat Dies, Grassy Borders. Spring Showers, Stitched Hillside Borders, Sweater Weather (Lawn Fawn); Cardstock - American Crafts, Doodlebug Design; Designer Paper - Birthday Mood Rings (KI Memories), Hello Sunshine (Kaiser Craft), Copic Makers, Glossy Accents and Wink of Stella.

I *love* Lawn Fawn stamps and I just adore creating little scenes with them. I love how each of the sets can work on their own but they can also mix and match so well too. It just extends the possibilities and that is such a good thing. More value for money, and who doesn’t love that!

Okay, I better go and try and finish the other partially completed card which is pushed off to the side of my desk. Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

Happy Stamping!
