A Critters on the Savanna Card by Karin!

Karin joins us today to share a clever card using our Black, White and Bright theme!

Hi Everyone, it’s Karin and I’m so happy to share inspiration for this Lawn Fawnatics challenge.
For this card, that would be great for a kid, I started out by stamping and coloring three zebras from the fun set Critters on the Savanna. For my coloring I used watercolor pencils. I fussy cut my zebras before I created a bright and colorful background on white cardstock by inking it with distress ink in Spiced Marmalade. The sentiment I used for my flag/banner is from the cute set Love Letters.


Have a happy and crafty weekend!

A Critters on the Savanna Birthday Card with Jessica


Jessica joins us today to share a colorful birthday card that uses a fun masking technique!

Good morning!  Jess here with my first solo post for Lawn Fawnatics!

I recently purchased the adorable Critters on the Savanna stamp set (I know, I know…I have no idea why it took me so long!) and I couldn’t wait to play with it!  I stamped the baobab tree onto my card base and colored it with copic markers.  Then I fussy cut a mask from post-it tape and placed it over the stamped image to protect it.  I used post-it tape to mark off a vertical rectangle and then blended wilted violet, broken china, worn lipstick, and spiced marmalade distress oxides onto the card base before flicking it with water.  I removed the mask on my tree and set it aside to dry.

Next I stamped my lion and colored him with copic markers before fussy-cutting him.  I ran a black marker over the cut edge to create a nice sharp edge.  Then I stamped my sentiment onto black cardstock with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.  I trimmed the sentiment down to a fishtail banner and adhered it to my card.  Finally I added my lion with foam mounting tape and a sprinkling of ombre sequins to highlight the colors of the background!

Thanks so much for visiting today and don’t forget to enter your Outstanding Occasions cards for our current challenge!  Have a wonderful day!
