Jessica’s Blue Umbrella Card

Visit the Lawn Fawn blog today for our Big Giveaway and the start of March Inspiration Week!

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Inspired by a Book, Movie, Song challenge!  I created a card using the Pixar short, The Blue Umbrella, as my inspiration!

To start, I stamped the umbrella from Hello Baby onto a stack of full sheet sticky post-it notes and fussy cut them to create a bunch of umbrella masks!  Then I started stamping my umbrellas with Copic-friendly Jet Black ink on a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock.  As I stamped each umbrella I’d cover it with a mask so I could stamp the next one to create a sea of umbrellas on a rainy day.  I left the masks in place and blended stormy sky, faded jeans, chipped sapphire, and black soot distress oxide ink over the panel.  I splattered it with water, blotted off the excess, and let it dry.

Once the panel was dry I removed the masks and colored my umbrellas with Copic markers.  I stamped faces on two of the umbrellas from All the Clouds to give them a little personality.  Then I die-cut the Puffy Cloud Border with white cardstock and vellum.  I added a sentiment from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters and layered the clouds on the top of my panel.  Finally I stamped lots of raindrops and rain from Hello Baby and Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters with Versamark and heat-embossed them with silver sparkle embossing powder to finish the card!

And that’s it!  You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create for the Inspired By Challenge!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend! Jess


Have a great weekend Fawnatics friends! Happy crafting!

Caly’s Inspired by Old MacDonald Card

We hope you will join us at the Lawn Fawn blog starting this Friday, March 19th for another fantastic Inspiration Week! We will be showcasing the rest of our Spring 2021 Release with Design Team samples, Intro Videos and lots of great giveaways! We can’t wait!

Hi Friends! It’s Caly with you today.  The Inspired by a Book, Movie, Song Theme for the current Challenge 97 is going strong!  This is a fun one for a lot of people and it’s so fun for us to see what everyone makes.  You still have lots of time to participate as this is a 3 week challenge that ends on Sunday April 4th, 2021 at 11:59pm PT – that’s Easter and my daughter is turning 5!  My card today is inspired by the nursery rhyme/kids song Old MacDonald!

I recently got the Hay There set and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to use it!  I paired it with the Happy Village and Rub-A-Dub-Dub sets to fill out my slimline scene for you.  I started by stamping and coloring the images using Copic markers.

Reds:  R32, R35, R37, R39
Yellows:  Y00, Y04, Y11, Y15, YR24
Greens:  YG11, YG13, YG09
Blue:  B000
Browns: [E0000, E30], [E31, E34, E35, E37], [E40, E41, E42, E43]
Flesh:  R20, E000, E00, E02, R00, E95
Grays:  N0, N2, N4, 6, N8

To create my hills, I used Cilantro cardstock and cut it from the Slimline Grassy Hillside Borders.  Then I used a piece of green patterned paper from the Really Rainbow Scallops Collection Pack and cut a piece using the Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders.  I ink-blended the top of both pieces using Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink to give them some shading. 

Next, I ink-blended my sky on a white panel using Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks.  I used the Large Slimline with Sliders die to die-cut a stitching all around the panel as well as the hillside panels to carry through the decorative border.

I attached the patterned hillside first, then the Cilantro hillside panel with foam adhesive to add dimension to my card.  The fun part was attaching all the adorable farm animals and barn and trees to fill my scene! 

I hope you enjoyed this card!  I can’t wait to see what everyone creates!  Thanks so much for visiting today! 

Remember you have until Easter to participate in this challenge! ~Caly
