Sending Clean & Simple Hugs with Jessica

We are looking forward to seeing your Clean and Simple challenge creativity! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. The Clean and Simple challenge will be open until Sunday, February 20th at 11:59PM ET.

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Clean and Simple challenge!

To start I gathered up all my Lawn Fawn cardstock scraps I keep in a storage pocket and cut them into strips of a variety of widths.  I used Guava, Raspberry, Chili Pepper, Fake Tan, Sunflower, No. 2 Pencil, Cilantro, Mermaid, Peacock, Moonstone, Blue Jay, and Sugar Plum cardstock though you could use cardstocks in the same color family or whatever scraps you happen to have on hand!  I applied adhesive to an A2 panel of white cardstock and then laid the strips on a diagonal pattern.  After I was done, I cut off the excess and was left with an A2 panel. 

Next, I die-cut the Giant Sending Big Hugs die from white cardstock and adhered the negative over my rainbow background.  I laid the sentiment inside the cut out and used it as a guide to adhere all the little pieces (like the inside of the ‘b’).  I stamped the rest of the sentiment from All the Clouds onto Black Licorice cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder! 

And that’s it!  You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see your clean and simple creations!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend! -Jess

  1. This card is guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of whoever receives it! The rainbow stripes are so much fun and I love that the strips are not all the same width – definitely pinning so I can use it for inspiration! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. This is perfect! It carries a big punch visually while not being difficult to carry off technique-wise. This could be used for all big word dies. GREAT CARD!! It’s terrific to have reminders of arrangements like this from time to time. There are so many possibilities and sometimes I forget classics like this beauty!. TFS –
