Let’s see how our talented Design Team was inspired by Spring!

Gardening is a fun Spring activity and Samantha has the Some Bunny critters hard at work! For the background she combined Meadow Borders and Stitched Garden Border with pastel Shimmer and Gold Rush cardstock!

Christy‘s sunny design combines Happy Village with some Tiny Friends! She created a cheery scene on a Stitched Circle layered with a Scalloped Circle! All the pretty patterned papers add to the fun!

Joyce paired a Spring Critter Hugger with our new Build-A-Basket: Easter! She filled the basket with beautifully colored carrots from Stitched Garden Border!

Caly‘s card recreates one of the images from the Inspiration Board with a combination of Stitched Sun Frame and Cattails Border! You can almost feel the warmth of this smiling shaker sun!

For her circle shaped card, Karin created a sweet little scene using Dandy Day mice and a pretty Spring tree from Tree Before ‘n Afters.

Samantha‘s card is adorable and perfect for Father’s Day! She used Stitched Pond and Sandy Beach Accents to create a for the cute ducks from Rub-A-Dub-Dub to swim! I love the how she included the little “duck” from Easter Party, it adds lots of fun and whimsy!

Jessica also used the little Rub-A-Dub-Dub ducks for her charming Spring shower card! She kept it clean and simple with the look of water made with alcohol ink!

Franci‘s Spring Critter Huggers are whimsical focal points for her pretty pastel cards! Filled with candy they are perfect for Easter or Spring party favors!

Jenn‘s beautiful card makes me think of brisk breezy Spring days! It features Yay, Kites and ombré inked Louie’s ABCs on a background of stenciled fluffy clouds!

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 97 – Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song tomorrow!

Caly’s Inspired by Old MacDonald Card

We hope you will join us at the Lawn Fawn blog starting this Friday, March 19th for another fantastic Inspiration Week! We will be showcasing the rest of our Spring 2021 Release with Design Team samples, Intro Videos and lots of great giveaways! We can’t wait!

Hi Friends! It’s Caly with you today.  The Inspired by a Book, Movie, Song Theme for the current Challenge 97 is going strong!  This is a fun one for a lot of people and it’s so fun for us to see what everyone makes.  You still have lots of time to participate as this is a 3 week challenge that ends on Sunday April 4th, 2021 at 11:59pm PT – that’s Easter and my daughter is turning 5!  My card today is inspired by the nursery rhyme/kids song Old MacDonald!

I recently got the Hay There set and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to use it!  I paired it with the Happy Village and Rub-A-Dub-Dub sets to fill out my slimline scene for you.  I started by stamping and coloring the images using Copic markers.

Reds:  R32, R35, R37, R39
Yellows:  Y00, Y04, Y11, Y15, YR24
Greens:  YG11, YG13, YG09
Blue:  B000
Browns: [E0000, E30], [E31, E34, E35, E37], [E40, E41, E42, E43]
Flesh:  R20, E000, E00, E02, R00, E95
Grays:  N0, N2, N4, 6, N8

To create my hills, I used Cilantro cardstock and cut it from the Slimline Grassy Hillside Borders.  Then I used a piece of green patterned paper from the Really Rainbow Scallops Collection Pack and cut a piece using the Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders.  I ink-blended the top of both pieces using Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink to give them some shading. 

Next, I ink-blended my sky on a white panel using Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks.  I used the Large Slimline with Sliders die to die-cut a stitching all around the panel as well as the hillside panels to carry through the decorative border.

I attached the patterned hillside first, then the Cilantro hillside panel with foam adhesive to add dimension to my card.  The fun part was attaching all the adorable farm animals and barn and trees to fill my scene! 

I hope you enjoyed this card!  I can’t wait to see what everyone creates!  Thanks so much for visiting today! 

Remember you have until Easter to participate in this challenge! ~Caly
