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

Mayra’s Interactive Toy Story Trio of Cards

Hi Fawnatics friends! Today we are featuring three amazing interactive cards by our talented Guest Designer, Mayra to inspire your creativity!

Mayra created this trio of fabulous cards with a Toy Story theme! She made a Magic Iris card, a shaker/slider card and an adorable pop-up design! I love how Mayra used tiny clouds from Pivot Pop-Up to decorate the Andy’s room scene on the cover of the pop-up card! How cute that she included the desk from You’re Just My Type!

Mayra combined images from lots of different sets to create this amazing western scene! In the background are Stitched Mountain Borders, then Stitched Hillside Borders with some cute cactus from Stuck on You and Year Ten! The sheriff office is created using the Build-A-House die set and the water hole is the Stitched Pond! Check out the supply list below for all the sets used on these cards!

The Magic Iris opens behind the Andy’s room scene to reveal the western sheriff’s office! Mayra included lots of the Toy Story characters including RAWR as Rex, Buzz is the astronaut from Out of This World, Hamm is from Hay There, the little alien from Beam Me Up and of course Woody and Jessie are from Screen Time!

This fun slimline design depicts Pizza Planet! You’re Claw-some is filled with the little aliens. The claw slides back and forth to grab the aliens. The Sweet Smiles gumball machine and How You Bean? mason jar filled with stars are both shakers!

Thank you so much, Mayra! These cards are just amazing and absolutely inspiring! You have been an amazing Guest Designer!

There are still two weeks left for the Interactive Card challenge! It will be open until Sunday, July 5th at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!


Happy crafting from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!
