Lawn Fawn: Let's Bokeh

Hello there!
I have a one layer holiday card that I am sharing today using the Let's Bokeh stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  Bokeh is a word a lot of photographers use, its to get that nice blurred background that creates circles of light.

This stamp set has a ton of different sized silhouette circles as well as outlined circles to create to many fun bokeh inspired projects.  By using different colored ink it creates a little bit of depth which is so cool, especially if you are making a one layer card.

Make sure you head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog, to see more projects using this set, as well as a chance to win some new product!

Lawn Fawn: Lets Bokeh in the Snow

Hello there!
I have a quick and easy project to show you today, using the Let's Bokeh in the Snow pattern paper collection from Lawn Fawn.  I used the Goodie Bag die template to create these cute little bags.

To create these bags, all you do is die cut pattern paper or cardstock twice, then adhere together.  Lawn Fawn makes the packaging dies so easy to work with.  For those of you who are visual learners just search the Lawn Fawn YouTube archives and there is a video on how to use this die set!

After I diecut the stitches circle die with white cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and images using the Trim the Tree stamp set, and adhered using foam adhesive.

Materials Used:
Lawn Fawn Let's Bokeh in the Snow pattern paper
Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die
Lawn Fawn stitched circle die
Lawn Fawn trimmings
Lawn Fawn Trim the Tree stamp set
Lawn Fawn ink
Scrapbook adhesives by 3L

Lawn Fawn: Winter Alpaca

Hello there!
I know you might be a little tired of me making these pillow boxes, but they make me so happy.  Not to mention you can put candy, money, a gift card or anything else you may think of.
Today over at the Lawn Fawn Blog, there are tons of projects showcasing the Santa's Belly die attachment for the pillow box, Stitched Circle Tags & Winter Alpaca (I think a few border dies too)!  Head on over there because a lot of product is going to be given away, and who doesn't like free stuff!.

I wanted to make a project coordinating some of the new product together.  Once I diecut the pillow box, I stamped the (alpaca my scarf) sentiment with a few snowflakes, adhered the pillow box shut.  Die cut some green felt using one of the dies from the Santa's Belly set that coordinates with the pillow box.  I really love the added touch the scalloped ends make.  I then die cut white cardstock using the middle sized stitched tag die, stamped the Alpaca image in black ink along with the sentiment.  I colored in the Alpaca using Copic markers.  Tied the tag to the card using green twine and it was finished!

These really are sooo easy to make...you only need a tiny strip of adhesive, thats it!  Easy I tell ya!

Materials Used:
Lawn Fawn Winter Alpaca stamp set
Lawn Fawn Lets Bokeh in the Snow pattern paper
Lawn Fawn stitched tag dies

Lawn Fawn: Happy Harvest

Hello there!
I know lots of you out there are sending your children off to school this week (and last), well in the south at least.  That means fall is right around the corner!  Living in Florida means summer kind of drags out to October, so fall here is just a few weeks.  But it truly is fantastic!  Warm days, cooler nights and no humidity.
Anyhow, fall means fall projects.  Like Halloween, back to school, Thanksgiving, celebrating the harvest!

Lawn Fawn is in the middle of August Inspiration Week, and everything has been fall themed.  Today is no different, as I am showcasing a stamp/die set called Happy Harvest.  Again don't hate me, I'm seriously addicted to this pillow box die, but I made a few pillow boxes using the Happy Harvest stamp set.
Make sure you head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog, to see some fabulous projects by the design team, and for a chance to win this set!!

There are so many fun images in this set.  I couldn't decide on one project so I made two.  Both pillow boxes were created using Lawn Fawn pattern paper.  Then embellished using the Happy Harvest stamp/die set.  What is great about coordinating stamps/dies, is that you can stamp a bunch of images onto a sheet of paper, place the dies over the images, and diecut them all at once!  This really makes making cards. gifts, 3d items, that much easier.  The scarecrow was paper pieced, if you are wondering how that was created.  Paper piecing is when you stamp the image onto pattern paper, cut out the selected part, and adhere it to the image or diecut.  Its like customizing a paper doll.  Its a fun technique for sure!  The sunflowers and pumpkin were all colored in using Copic markers.  I added dimension to both projects by using 3d foam tape to lift up the images.

Lawn Fawn: Treat Yourself

Just a fun watercolored card today, using the Treat Yourself stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn.  This is a small mini set, which means its super affordable, not to mention cute.  Make sure you head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog, for a chance to win this set also to see more great projects using these products.

I had an idea in my mind to watercolor part of the card front, as well as the images.  I love rainbow sherbet especially in the summertime, so I used that as a jump off for my color palette.  The card base is a nice watercolor paper.  To start I dipped a brush in water and got the bottom right of the card front a little wet, so the paint would spread easier.  When I watercolor i do lots of layers, and let the layers dry in between coats.  Once I was happy, i stamped the sentiment in a black pigment ink, then heat set the ink.  When watercoloring and stamping together, you need to use a permanent pigment ink not a water based ink.  Water based inks react to water, and will get runny and splotchy.  So to prevent that, stamp and then heat set the pigment ink.
The ice cream tub was adhered to the card front using foam squares, to give the card a little bit of dimension, it looked too flat not popped up.

Lawn Fawn: Puffy Cloud Borders & Rainbow

Today, I am sharing a few stand alone dies that are brand new to Lawn Fawn.  Stand alone dies, are just dies that can go with any project and do not have a coordinating stamp set to match.  For my project today, I am combining the Puffy Cloud Borders and Rainbow, as well as the hello die.
Be sure to head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog, to win these products as well as to see some great projects using these products!

No doubt about it.  These dies to me scream happy!  These would be fantastic to help create fun scenes, especially with the critters.  But for todays card, I created this with just dies (and no stamps can you believe it!).  I can totally see myself using these dies on scrapbook pages as well!  The stitching on the clouds, totally hooked me in, it adds a really nice dimension to the cardstock.

This card is pretty easy.  I just die cut everything, and started layering it all on.  I just needed cardstock, the dies, adhesive and the trimmings. Thats it!  This is the kind of card that would make someone so happy, to receive it in the mail.

Quick & Easy Gift Cards

I needed a few super easy gift cards, to give to my children.  I do not get them Easter baskets anymore, just their favorite candies, maybe a small gift and then gift cards.

I used a gift card die template for my projects, you don't even need to find a way to enclose them, because they latch shut.

I used some Fancy Pants Designs pattern paper & stickers from Everyday Circus and Burlap & Bouquets.  The sticker sheets have a ton of different alphabet fonts, and great little elements that made decorating these gift cards so very easy.
