Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 16 – Use Your Oldest Lawn Fawn Set!

For this challenge we invite you to create a new card, scrapbook page or crafty project that features your oldest Lawn Fawn set! For some of us that takes us back seven years ago to first release sets like Critters in the “Burbs! Maybe you’re a new Fawny fan and your oldest set is from a recent release, that’s what will make this challenge so fun! You can check for when your sets were released at lawnfawn.com by clicking on Shop and selecting Release Date. Have fun combining old with new Lawn Fawn stamps and dies! This new challenge will run until Sunday, November 19 at 11:59PM PT. We can’t wait to take this stroll down memory lane with you!

For each challenge, we will randomly select a winner to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop! We will also be highlighting a few of your fabulous projects at the close of each challenge! By linking your projects to our challenges you will give permission for us to post your work to this blog and our social media sites. Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we will keep the rules few! Note: we’ve amended the rules a bit to limit entries to no more than 4 for each challenge.

Now let’s see what our amazing Design Team has created to inspire you!

Karin combined a sentiment from a newer set, Jump for Joy with a vintage set, Critters in the Forest!
Samantha M. shows off her lovely style on a card featuring the reindeer from Critters in the Snow!
Christy combined the adorable squirrel from Critters in the ‘Burbs with Scripty Joy and our new Birch Trees dies! She filled her beautiful shaker card with Chunky Glitter!
Jessica‘s sunny Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up design is filled with adorable Critters Down Under!
Samantha C created a fun way to announce a new address! Her card features retired sets You’ve Got Mail and Home Sweet Home along with some vintage patterned papers! The cute dog, squirrel and tree are from Critters in the ‘Burbs!

Just for fun our challenge admins, Jenn and Nancy went back into their photo archives to find their oldest set used on vintage card designs (it’s Critters in the ‘Burbs from Lawn Fawn’s first release in March 2010 for both)!

Jenn‘s clean and simple design is timeless and so adorable!
Nancy paired her critters and tree with clouds and a sentiment from a retired set, Partly Cloudy.

We will have Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and of course, we will have our Featured Fawnatics and Random Winner from Challenge 15 tomorrow!

Jessica’s Cute Candy Wrapper!

Challenge 15 will be open until Sunday, November 5 at 11:59 PM ET

Jessica joins us today with her cute and clever take on gift packaging!

Good morning!  Jess here with an idea for our Clever Gift Packaging challenge!  I don’t actually own many of the treat box or gift holder dies from Lawn Fawn (yet!) so I decided to give you an idea of how to create gift wrapping without using a treat-specific die!

My husband and I love these yummy gourmet chocolate bars and I thought it would be fun to slip one into his lunch on Halloween! But I wanted to gussy up the packaging a little so I created a s’mores themed gift wrapper!  I started by die-cutting the Outside In Stitched Rectangle from the middle of a 12×12 piece of Armoire patterned paper from the Knock on Wood collection. Then I trimmed the paper down to a 4”x9” strip with the rectangular opening in the center. I adhered a piece of vellum behind the rectangle and then stamped the sentiment from Love You S’more onto the vellum with Versafine and heat-embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I turned the strip over and stamped the flames with Versafine and heat-embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder. I colored the flames with Copic markers on the back side of the vellum to get a more muted look.

Next I stamped the adorable squirrel and marshmallow from Love You S’more onto white cardstock with Copic-friendly Jet Black ink and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. I adhered them over the vellum window and then added a few accents with a white gel pen. Finally I die-cut the pink hearts from the Hearts die set, adhered them to the vellum window, and added a layer of clear sparkle for a little extra shimmer!

And that’s it! You have 2 weeks to get crafty and create some clever gift packaging for our current challenge and I can’t wait to get more ideas from all of you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

A Forest Feast Scene on a Gift Tag!

We hope you have been enjoying this fun challenge theme! Our Create a Scene challenge is open until Sunday September 17 at 11:59 PM ET

A scene can be small enough to fit on a tag! Making cute little vignettes on tags and small gift cards is a fun and quick way to create a scene!

I thought I’d pop in to share a gift tag I made to accompany a birthday gift!

I love little projects like this where I can use lots of different supplies! I started out with the larger Stitched Circle Tag die cut from Knock on Wood 6×6 paper in teal and green then I used Forest Border to die cut the green tag. I stamped and colored images from our new Forest Feast and also from Party Animal with Copic markers then assembled the scene on the layered tag. To embellish a little more I added some branches from Large Wreath cut from more Knock on Wood 6×6 paper and finished with a bow (from Large Wreath). The sentiment, from Tiny Tag Sayings: Birthday is white embossed. I combined a bunch of different Lawn Trimmings cord in Fall colors to tie up the tag on the gift!

I hope you will join us for our Create a Scene Challenge!

Thanks for your visit! Happy Crafting!
