Caly’s Charming You’re Just My Type Card

It’s Caly with you today and I’m so excited to share my project with you. I adore the latest release by Lawn Fawn and got to use it today for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #68 – Something Old & Something New! I’m using quite a few older sets so keep reading to find out!

The new You’re Just My Type and Love Poems sets are so much fun so I couldn’t help but combine them to create my pull-tab card today. I love the little mice on these sets so I combed through my Lawn Fawn bins and pulled out two more sets that have mice to add some friends to my card. The two mice at the bottom of my card are from the Elphie Selfie and Wild For You sets.

My images are stamped and colored with Copic markers. After die-cutting, I added white gel highlights. I do this after die-cutting because I’ve found that they can rub off on your die-cutting plates so I thought I would share that with you. Nothing like spending some time coloring for things to get messed up during the die-cutting process! Ask me, I totally had to color the desk twice because the die shifted during die-cutting. BOO!

My background is ink-blended with Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide inks on top and Peacock Feathers on the bottom. I love pinks and teals and always have to incorporate those colors! After ink-blending, I die-cut the Outside In Stitched Rectangles to create my border, then I used the new Just Stitching Hearts to add texture to my background, overlapping them for interest.

I then used the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On to create my mechanism for my typed love note. I love all the mice on this card and the revealed note! To finish my card, I stamped the light rays for my lamp and added the typewriter sounds and stamped my sentiment on a Simple Wavy Banner.

I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I had making it! The current Something Old, Something New challenge ends on Sunday, January 19th at 11:59pm ET! I can’t wait to see all the entries! Thanks so much for stopping by today! ~Caly


Happy Crafting from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!

We have a super talented Guest Designer to kick off the new year! Please welcome Lynn Dionne! She has been playing in our challenges and she always inspires and impresses us with her unique designs! She shares her creativity at her blog Pink Whisper Designs and at her YouTube channel.

Lynn is embracing the theme with a calendar easel card, saying goodbye to the old year and welcoming a shiny new year! Her new products are Tree Before ‘n Afters and Foursquare Backdrop: Landscape! For the something old, Lynn used Riley’s ABCs, Little Picket Fence Border and Everyday Sentiment Banners. Be sure to visit her blog for all the details for making this amazing card!

Now let’s see how our awesome Design Team was inspired by the Something Old, Something New theme!

Joyce combined our new You’re Just My Type and Love Poems with our older Love Letters set! Her adorable card is a perfect Valentine or just to send some love!

Jessica‘s fantastic clean and simple design pairs our Thanks a Latte stamp set with our new Just Stitching Hearts die set!

It’s never too early to start making those Christmas cards! Samantha just had too many ideas this year so she’s starting on next Christmas! Her festive design combines Ho-Ho-Holidays with our older Toboggan Together and Puffy Cloud Borders! She even highlighted our very first alpha set, Harold’s ABCs with her punny greeting!

Christy‘s charming card combines sweet sayings from Love Poems with cute little mice from Wild for You and Elphie Selfie! She used Stitched Circle Stackables to create this adorable “cheesy” design!

Franci featured our new Stud Puffin set with clouds from Butterfly Kisses and a little envelope Gleeful Gardens! She created this sweet, shaped design using an Outside In Stitched Heart Stackable!

Karin‘s beautiful card features flowers from Flutter By with new Simple Wavy Banners and Wavy Sayings!

How adorable is Samantha‘s sweet mash-up of You’re Just My Type and Keep on Swimming! She added a greeting from Reveal Wheel Sentiments!

Caly‘s precious gift tags are ready for Mother’s Day! She made them using our brand new Heart Shaker Gift Tag die set and our older Mom + Me stamp set! She added some glittery sweetness with our Spring Sparkle glitter cardstock.

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 67 tomorrow!

Grace Remakes a Cute Reveal Wheel Card

Grace joins us today with a fun remake of a bubbly Reveal Wheel card! In the original welcome baby card she filled the Reveal Wheel window with bubbles and showed the baby elephant taking a bubble bath!

In the remake, Grace switched up the supporting cast of critters along with showing a new activity that has the elephant blowing bubbles with her trunk! Such a clever idea to use the butterfly net as the bubble wand!

Another fun twist for this CASE card is that Grace used mirror stamping so the two Elphie Selfie elephants can be facing the other way! The Butterfly Kisses fox and the sweet little ducks from Rub-A-Dub-Dub are having fun chasing the bubbles!

Grace added the white heat-embossed greeting (thinking of you) from Spanish Scripty Sayings on an ink blended Simple Grassy Hillside and created a lovely cloud-filled sky to finish her design!

Thank you for sharing this adorable project with us today, Grace! I hope it will inspire lots of creativity!
