Little Flowers and Buttons with Caly

Hi Friends! This is Caly with you today, sharing a card made with buttons for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! We’re bringing forgotten embellishments back and hope that you’ll play along!

Today’s card is made using the Little Flowers Lawn Cuts. These die-cuts create a potted arrangement of flowers and I’ve used little buttons to replace the floral centers. I decided to create a decorative window with a background accented by the Quilted Backdrop and framed by the Reverse Stitched Scallop Circle Windows. My top panel is attached over the quilted backdrop with foam adhesive so the window sits back a little.

I die-cut all of my elements using Lawn cardstock (Cilantro, Noble Fir, Ballet Slippers, Mermaid, Peacock, Apricot, Sugar Plum) and used coordinating inks to ink-blend and color the flowers to give them dimension.

After attaching all my flowers to the pot, I added foam adhesive to the back of the flowers and adhered it to my card so the flowers sit at the same height as the card panel. The pot is glued directly to the card top without additional height.

To give my die-cuts some interest, I added shimmer over the flowers and white gel highlights to the elements. The sentiment is from the Simply Sentiments stamp set and stamped over a Fancy Folded Banner. I did ink-blend a little around the edges to help the banner pop against the white background. Finally, to finish, I looped twine through another button and tied a bow to add one last embellishment to my card.

I hope you enjoyed this! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

The Bring it Back challenge will be open until Sunday, March 1st at 11:59PM ET

Joyce’s Fantastic Stud Puffin Card!

Joyce joins us today to share a brilliant Stud Puffin card design using our Inspiration Board color palette! This challenge will be open until Sunday, January 5th at 11:59PM ET.

Joyce used the Just Stitching Hearts die set to create a lovely backdrop for the cute puffins! I love how she water-colored them in pretty shades inspired by the challenge color palette.

Joyce added her sentiment to the Fancy Folded Banner then used the banner to ground her puffins! The little grass images from Butterfly Kisses fill in the cute scene!

Thank you for sharing with us today, Joyce! Your card is amazing!


Wishing all of our amazing Fawnatics friends the most wonderful New Year! Hoping you will have lots of crafty fun with our challenges in 2020!

Samantha’s Fishy Thank You Card!

Hey everyone, Samantha here with a fun card set that is inspired by the current Lawn Fawnatics Sketch Challenge!

I created a vibrant fishy card with a fun and punny sentiment using Fintastic Friends! I paired my vibrant color story with a fun black and white polka pattern paper. The Fancy Folded Banners are awesome die cuts. It creates a great dimension to your project while really highlighting the sentiment.
