Samantha’s Let’s Go Nuts Card with Rosy Fall Colors

We invite you to share your Awesome Autumn projects by linking up your photos HERE! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, stencils and papers and show us what you love about Autumn.  This challenge will be open until Sunday, October 2 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha‘s cheery Awesome Autumn inspiration features the cute Let’s Go Nuts squirrels!

She stamped and colored all the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers before cutting them out with the coordinating dies. Then she used Distress ink in Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Dried Marigold to splatter more color and texture on the treetops.

She arranged the trees from Critters in the Burbs and Let’s Play on a panel of white Woodgrain cardstock, then she placed the cute squirrels and acorns! To finish the card, she white embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and trimmed it into strips to pop up on the card!

This card is so adorable, Samantha! Thanks for sharing with us today!


Christy’s Cute Fox Baby Card

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Oh Baby! Challenge. This time I wanted to do a unisex card for those occasions where you might not know the gender yet, or even just want to have a stash of baby cards made up in advance that will work either way. So I stuck to shades of orange, yellow, and green — there’s a tiny bit of blue in the sky, and a tiny blush of pink on mama’s cheek. And I think everyone loves foxes, so they’re a great image to use to keep things gender neutral as well.

I combined a whole bunch of sets on today’s card, including Jump for Joy, On the Beach, Mom + Me, Butterfly Kisses, Critters in the Burbs, and Reveal Wheel Spring Sentiments. Whew! Isn’t it awesome how Lawn Fawn sets all just work so well together?

I started by coloring my images with Copic markers and trimming them out with the matching dies. Then I die cut the Meadow Backdrop: Landscape out of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock and keeping the whole thing together, ink blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink over the Cloudy Stencil to create the sky. Then I popped out the inner sky piece and ink blended Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn onto the grass panels. I also added a little splatter effect to give the panel a little something extra.

In the top right corner of the sky I stamped my sentiment with Black Licorice Ink. I created a card base from Sticky Note cardstock and adhered the background to  it with liquid glue. Then I added my images to create the cute little scene with mama fox playing with her new baby on her tummy and daddy fox coming over to join in the fun!

If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can find the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. And you still have plenty of time to play along in our challenge and help celebrate the birth of Kelly Marie and Mike’s very own bundle of joy!

The Oh Baby challenge will be open until Sunday, May 31st at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see your amazing creativity!


Have a great weekend! Happy crafting!
