Samantha’s Avocado Pun Inspired Card

We are loving the yummy projects filling the Fun with Food gallery! This challenge will be open until Sunday August 1 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see how you are inspired by this theme!

Hi friends, it’s Samantha! I had so many avocado puns floating around in my head, so I knew I had to make an avocado themed card!

I used the cute avocado and toaster images from Let’s Toast to feature on my card! They were colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut out. I heat embossed the custom, punny phrase with my all time, long time, favorite stamp set Harold’s ABCs! To add the sentiment I used a banner die cut from Black Licorice Cardstock with the Fancy Wavy Banners! I just LOVE the dimension that banner brings to the card!

For the background, I used the Simple Stripes: Diagonal to die cut out from white cardstock. Then I used Distress Oxide Inks in Blueprint Sketch and Cracked Pistachio on every other stripe! For the other stripes, I used Narwhal ink to add some soft, light gray to the edges! Then I splattered water on top of it all. Those bold stripes are my FAVORITE! I love the different techniques you can do with them, and how they make your images pop!

Thanks so much for sharing your punny card with us today, Samantha! I love it!


Looking forward to being inspired by your Fun with Food challenge entries! Happy Crafting!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 80 – Fun with Food!

Hello Fawnatics friends! It’s time for a new challenge and this one is sweet and spicy and totally yummy! We invite you to create projects with a food theme for our Fun with Food challenge!

We would love for 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, July 19th 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!

We are so happy to welcome Leontine van Ganswijk-Smit as the Guest Designer for this challenge! She has been catching our eye with her innovative and beautiful challenge entries and we know she will inspire you as well! You can check out her creativity at her blog: Little Lovely Crafts and at her Instagram account: @little_lovely_crafts

The idea for Leontine‘s super cute Fun with Food inspiration is our Screen Time girl wondering what yummy treats might be inside the picnic basket! She combined lots of sets with cute images of sweet desserts including Unicorn Picnic, Crazy Antics and Year Seven! She used Simple Puffy Clouds for the thought bubbles along with the small bubbles from You Are Sublime to link those thoughts together on the slimline design!

Now let’s see how the Fun with Food theme inspired our amazing Design Team!

Franci‘s sweet design features a classic food-themed set from 2011, Love ‘n Breakfast! Her details add so much fun to this adorable card and I love how she added the polka dots to the kraft cardstock using a white gel pen!

This happy little Yeti or Not pair are enjoying frozen treats in the quaint village that Karin created using Village Shops!

Joyce created a long slimline picnic scene using Crazy Antics! She filled the sky with fluffy clouds using the Cloudy Stencil and framed the scene with a Hello Sunshine Remix pattern!

Samantha C combined Be Hap-Pea with Birthday Before ‘n Afters to create this charming birthday card! She made it extra special using Shimmer cardstock and fun die sets to set the scene; Stitched Garden Border, Meadow Borders and Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop!

Christy‘s super cute circle window card features a fun little picnic with the Crazy Antics mice! She used cheery Hello Sunshine Remix 6×6 papers to bump up the happy color palette!

Jessica created a magical Unicorn Picnic scene with lots of sparkle! She started by inking a Puffy Cloud Backdrop: Portrait in pretty blue then adding Chunky Glitter and Pixie Dust Sparkle clouds!

Samantha M designed a fun taco bar with the cute Year Nine set! She added all the fixin’s for tacos using Let’s Toast, Be Hap-pea, Thankful Mice and Make Lemonade!

Caly‘s adorable interactive pop-up card features all the fun breakfast foods from Let’s Toast! She used the Let’s Toast Pull-Tab Add-On to make the toast pop up!

Jenn‘s happy summer design features our new Summer sets, Crazy Antics and All the Clouds! She added lots of fun with the cool ink-smooshed backgrounds and Prisma Glitter on the Finley’s ABCs!

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 79 tomorrow!
