Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 95 – Card Sketch

Hello Fawnatics friends! Welcome to a new challenge! For this challenge Jenn has created a fun Card Sketch to inspire your creativity! Your card can be any theme or style as long as we can see how the sketch influenced 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, February 28th 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 Design Team used the Card Sketch to inspire them.

Samantha M used the sketch to place her cute unicorn, rainbow and clouds in her beautiful scene!

Christy used Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait to follow the sketch. She created cute little vignettes using Critters on the Farm!

Karin followed the sketch pretty closely to create a beautiful wedding card! She layered Lacy Heart Stackables with Cole’s ABCs to spell LOVE. Then she used the vines and flowers from Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On to add pretty detail. She finished the card with a sentiment from Swan Soirée.

Jessica replaced the hearts with the cute typewriters from You’re Just My Type to follow the sketch. I love how the sentiment is continued on each sheet of typing paper. She finished this fun anniversary design with a sentiment from Happy Happy Happy!

Samantha C created a fun birthday card using Beam Me Up! She used the sketch to place these super cute images. I love how the “beam” connects the two elements!

Joyce used the sketch creatively by omitting one of the hearts! Then she used Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables as windows to arrange the Special Delivery images.

Franci created a happy design by replacing the hearts with adorable little flan from Sweet Friends! The tiny strawberries and hearts add cute detail to her clean and simple card.

Caly combined Candy Hearts and XOXO Backdrop: Portrait to create a happy design for Valentine’s Day!

Jenn used the new Distress Ink color Kitsch Flamingo to create a fun Flamingo Together design! You see the sketch reflected in the placement of the Stitched Hearts and the pair of flamingos!

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 94 What’s the Weather tomorrow!

Christy’s Pretty Pink Flamingo Inspiration!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our For the Birds Challenge! This time I was totally feeling these sweet feathered friends from Flamingo Together. I combined them with some flora and fauna from Critters in the Jungle and Manatee-rific. All of the images were colored with Copic markers and trimmed out with the matching dies.

For my focal panel, I die cut some Ballet Slippers cardstock with the Stitched Journaling Card die. I stamped my sentiment in a combo of Wild Rose and Black Licorice ink and then embossed two of the Just Stitching Hearts. Then I adhered my images.

For the card base, I used more Ballet Slippers cardstock to make a standard A2 sized card, then I trimmed out some Spring Fling pattered papers with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables so you get that detail on the edge, and also get a little peek of that cardstock showing through. I popped up my focal panel with foam tape and added a little Star Dust Stickles to the flower centers to finish off the card.

I also did some stamping on the inside, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. For now, why not grab those bird stamps and get crafty yourself! There’s still plenty of time to enter our challenge!

The For the Birds challenge will be open until Sunday February 2 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see what you create!
