Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Scalloped Treat Box: Spring Add-on


Hello there!  Welcome to day 3 of Lawn Fawn Release Week!  All of the new products that I will be showcasing throughout the week will be available for purchase on February 22nd!

Today, we are showing off the Scalloped Treat Box: Spring Add-On!  I created my Scalloped Treat Box out of some of the new Gotta Have Gingham papers.  I diecut the roof and window and door frames from Narwhal cardstock.  The front door and cute little flowers in the window box are cut from Chili Pepper cardstock.  All of the shrubs are Cilantro cardstock, and how cute is that little picket fence!?

Each side of the box has windows and cute flower filled flower boxes!  The possibilities are endless with this add on set, and it works perfectly with the previously released Scalloped Treat Box Add-On dies!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Pivot Pop-Up




Hello there!  Welcome to day 2 of Lawn Fawn Release Week!  All of the new products that I will be showcasing throughout the week will be available for purchase on February 22nd!

Today, the team is sharing projects made with the newest Lawn Fawn interactive dies, the Pivot Pop-Up!  Upon hearing the name of this die, the PIVOT! "Friends" episode immediately came to mind!  LOL!

This card was a labor of love.  It was one of those cards that I started without a real direction, and I just let it evolve and enjoyed the process.  It ending up being a card for my husband for Valentine's Day, and he loved it!  Here is the outside of my card...  I used the Outside In Stitched Rectangles dies to cut stitched rectangle from white cardstock.  For the focal point, I created an ink blended background with Distress Oxide inks, and diecut it with the smallest of the new Stitched Stars Stackables.  Then I used the new Stitched Star Frames to add a frame around the patterned star.  I stamped and colored one of the adorable aliens from the new Beam Me Up stamp set, and added a planet from the Out of This World stamp set.  A sentiment from Beam Me Up was stamped under the star, which I popped up with foam tape, and to finish off the front, I added a scattering of stars from the Lucky Stars stamp set, stamped in Sunflower ink.

Pivot Popup Outside

Upon opening the card, you will find an entire galaxy!  I inked blended a background for the inside too, using Distress Oxides.  I used the Starry Skies dies to add some shooting stars and star clusters randomly on the background.  Then I backed the panel with a white card base to make the stars stand out.  I stamped and colored images from Beam Me Up, Out of this World and Critters Ever After and glued them all down with the new Glue Tube from Lawn Fawn.  This glue is amazing, and the fine tip is perfect for tiny pieces!  I stamped a sentiment from Out of This World on the new Cloudy Pop-Up Add On dies.  The pivot mechanism was easy to assemble, but it is important to use good STURDY adhesive to adhere it together.  Constant opening and closing could loosen things over time, so you want to make sure it's not going anywhere.  I used glossy accents to glue down my Pivot Pop-Up and it worked beautifully.

That's all for me today!  Make sure you stop by the Lawn Fawn blog to see what is happening over there... lots more projects to share with you!  I hope you will come back tomorrow as I have another card for you!!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Rub-A-Dub-Dub & Quilted Backdrop



Hello there! Welcome to day 1 of the February Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!  All of the new goodies that I will be sharing with you today will be available for purchase on February 22nd, although I know a lot of you probably pre-ordered them already!

Today, the team is showcasing two of my favorites from the new release (I know I say that about everything LOL!), Rub-A-Dub-Dub and the Quilted Backdrop.

To create my card, I started off with a white A2 card base.  On top of that, I added the Quilted Backdrop, also cut from white cardstock.  I just love white on white patterns.  Then I added a strip of the new Gotta Have Gingham 6x6 paper paper to mimic the  bathroom floor.  I stamped and colored the images from Rub-A-Dub-Dub with Copic markers and diecut them with the coordinating dies.  Once I arranged my scene, I adhered some pieces flat with the new Glue Tube, and others were popped up with foam tape.  I added some white gel pen accents, and made some glitter bubbles with some Nuvo Glitter drops.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the set on a hand cut banner, and added a white Stitched Rectangle Frame around the entire scene to finish off the card.

That's all for me today! Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn blog to see lots more inspiration from the team, and stop back by tomorrow because I have another project to share with you! :)

Reverse Confetti February Blog Hop!


Hello there!  It's February 8th, and that means it's time for the February Reverse Confetti blog hop!  This month, our theme is LOVE!

I made some cute little candy boxes filled with conversation hearts... because it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without conversation hearts!

To create my boxes, I started off with two clear treat boxes.  I used the box topper from the Clear Treat Box and Box Wrap Combo.  I cut the box topper from Piggy Bank and Iced Aqua cardstock.  For the tags, I diecut two of the Round Top Tag Confetti Cuts die from two different patterned papers from the Pattern Play paper pad.  I stamped and colored the adorable T-Rex from the No Tomorrow stamp set, one in shades of pink and the other in shades of aqua.  I diecut them with the coordinating No Tomorrow Confetti Cuts, and gave them googly eyes for extra cuteness!  Then I added some non-green greenery around each dino.  Underneath, I stamped a sentiment from Heart Filled Sentiments in Midnight ink.

February Hop 

To attach each tag to the box, I tied a bow from coordinating satin ribbon, and threaded the tag through the bow with some Solid Blossom and Solid Caribbean twine.

February Hop 

Who says dinosaurs are only for boys?  If she's pink, she's obviously a girl!! ;)

February Hop


That's all for me today!  But be sure to hop along to see what the Confetti Crew have to share with you today! 

And, ‘Fetti Friends...

Blank Canvas {Paper Smooches}


Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share for the Paper Smooches Anything Goes January Challenge!

To create my card, I started off by stamping paint strokes from the Positive Strokes Two stamp set in three different colors of Distress inks - Picked Raspberry, Blueprint Sketch and Cracked Pistachio - onto Distress watercolor paper.  I added a spattering of clean clear water to bleach out some areas, then added some white spatter using watered down white acrylic paint. I added some wonky stitches to the edges to the panel. Then I stamped and colored the easel  image from the I Heart Art stamp set, and on it, added a sentiment from the Spreading Sunshine sentiment set.  I stamped the paint brush and a paint tube from I Heart Art, colored them with copic markers, and fussy cut them, along with the easel.  I adhered the paint brush down flat with a glue pen and popped the easel and paint tube up with foam tape.  Then, to finish things off, I added a trio of fuchsia iridescent sequins, and popped the panel up on an A2 sized card  base with foam tape.

Fusion Card Challenge {Reverse Confetti}


Hello there!  I have a card to share with you for the current Fusion challenge - Coffee and a Book!  I pulled out some older Reverse Confetti favorites and used the theme and the sketch from the challenge for my card.


I pulled out my $5 Artist Loft watercolors from Michaels and painted a background, then when it was dry, I splattered some black watercolor to make it look more artsy.  I diecut the Big Stripes Tag Layer Confetti Cuts from Premier Polar White cardstock, and glued it to the background flat with a glue pen.  Then, I stamped one of the coffee mugs from Just Brew It in Midnight ink, and added coffee into the cup with sand ink, then diecut it with the coordinating Just Brew It Confetti Cuts dies.  To follow the sketch, I need a horizontal element at the bottom of my focal point, so I diecut the row of hearts from the Love Note Confetti Cuts die set in some Iced Aqua cardstock, and popped that up underneath the cup.

Creative Fuel

To finish things off, I added some steam to my coffee with a scattering of sequins. :)

Color Throwdown #475 {Reverse Confetti}


Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share with you for the current Color Throwdown challenge - #475!  It's a gorgeous combo!!  I pulled out the adorable Reverse Confetti dragon to color for day 1 of Kathy Rac's 30 Day Coloring Challenge, and had to turn him into a card!




As soon as I saw this color combination, the Warm Heart paper pad from Reverse Confetti came to mind.  It's one of my favorite paper pads, and it pushes me to use blues and purples which are colors that I don't normally gravitate towards.  I started out with a Grape Soda card base, then I layered two patterns from the Warm Hearts paper collection on top.  I stamped and colored the dragon from the adorable Magical Day stamp set, then I fussy cut him out. I popped him up with foam tape, then added a speech bubble from the Figure of Speech stamp set, which I stamped in Grape Soda ink and die cut with the coordinating Figure of Speech Confetti Cuts.

You make me happy

To finish things off, I added a scattering of stars that are also included in the Magical Day stamp set, and a handful of iridescent sequins.  There is something extra magical about stars and sequins for me :)

You make me happy

That's all for me today!

Thanks so much for dropping by! :)
