Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 103 -Little Things

It’s new challenge time again! For this challenge little things will be the stars of your project! Check out the sets in your stash, stamp or dies, and make the small images the focus of your design!

We invite you to share your creativity by linking up your crafty projects at the end of this post! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. This challenge will run for 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, July 4th at 11:59PM ET.

For each challenge, we will randomly select an entry 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’ll keep the rules to just a few!

Let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired by this new theme!

Franci combined lots of the cute little things in Ocean Shell-fie and Mermaid for You to create this happy design!

Caly used the little things from A Bug Deal to create a colorful shaker card! She used the negative of the Giant Sending Big Hugs die to make the shaker window and backed it with Really Rainbow paper!

The adorable Bubbles of Joy mice are the little things in Christy‘s sweet card design! Those bubbles are amazing!

Jessica cleverly used Peas on Earth as her “little things”! It’s never too early to start making holiday cards and you probably have lots of Lawn Fawn sets with just the right little images!

Joyce had a similar idea to Caly’s! Great, creative minds thinking alike! The industrious ants from Crazy Antics look adorable scurrying across the Giant Sending Big Hugs die cut!

Karin‘s cheery card features Car Critters and Village Heroes! Her beautiful clean and simple design has just a hint of inking in the background to ground the images.

I love this clever card by Samantha! The Tiny Fairy Tale characters are great for this challenge! And the little sand castle from Life is Good is sized perfectly for a little fairy kingdom! Samantha used a Stitched Scalloped Square Frame and the long cloud from Unicorn Picnic to add magic to her design!

Samantha M. created a perfectly punny custom greeting to go with all her little things with shells! She combined Fintastic Friends, You Are Sublime and Ocean Shell-fie with the Stitched Wave Borders to make an underwater scene! She stenciled bubbles in the background and stamped lots tiny fish from Mermaid for You as well!

Jessica wasn’t the only team member looking ahead to some holiday fun! Jenn’s jack o’lantern is made with Outside In Stitched Pumpkin. She filled the background with fun little things from Plan on It: Holidays and more of our Halloween sets!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 102 – All Things Ocean tomorrow!

Peter Rabbit Inspiration with Christy

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Inspired by a Book, Movie, or Song Challenge! I have been loving watching the entries come in and am blown away by your creativity!

For my card today, I wanted to depict another classic children’s tale and one of my personal favorites: Peter Rabbit. I pulled together images from Some Bunny, Happy Harvest, A Bug Deal, Our Friendship Grows, and Critters on the Farm to make it happen.

The first thing I needed to do was to alter my bunny and give him a little jacket just like Peter’s. So I drew it in pencil and then traced over it with a Memento Tuxedo Black Pen. I also altered the watering can to give it a top with a little opening at the front, to resemble the one in the illustrations. Then I colored all my images with Copic markers to match as closely as possible, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I took the second largest of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables and die cut some Mermaid Cardstock for the sky. Then I used the Grassy Border on some Cilantro for the grass, and the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders on Ground Coffee for the dirt. I stamped a sentiment from Some Bunny at the top of the sky panel in Peacock Ink.

To give the card a cozy look, I added a piece of patterned paper from the Perfectly Plaid Remix 6×6, die cut with the largest of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables to my Speckled Eggshell card base. Then I popped my focal panel up with foam tape and adhered my images with liquid glue to create the nostalgic scene in Mr. MacGregor’s garden. I also added a bit of Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle and shine.

I also finished off the inside of the card by stamping another classic scene from the book, but you can check that out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

If you haven’t had a chance to play along in our challenge yet, there’s still time! The Inspired By challenge will be open until Sunday, April 4th at 11:59PM ET. I can’t wait to see what you create!

Happy crafting, friends! Have a wonderful weekend!
