Hello Fawnatics! Welcome to Challenge 18! This time we have a fun technique for you! Show us your creative new cards and projects using Emboss Resist! This technique involves stamping and heat embossing using embossing powder, then adding color with ink blending, watercolor or any number of fun ways revealing the heat embossed image below. If you’ve never tried this technique this is the perfect time add it to your crafty repertoire! You can find lots of great tutorials and examples of emboss resist with a quick web search. This challenge will run through December 17 at 11:59PM PT.
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.
We are so excited to have three talented Guest Designers joining us today! Please welcome Lynn Kopas, Kathy Skou and Cheiron Brandon to the blog! I love that they all had the same idea to create wintry snowy skies using emboss-resist!

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!
