Christy’s Crazy Antics Picnic!

It’s almost time to celebrate our new Fall & Winter Release! We can’t wait to show you all the fun new products we have coming out soon! Join us at the Lawn Fawn blog starting on September 2!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Make the Sentiment the Star Challenge. I was itching to revisit the Crazy Antics stamp set again, but this time featuring those cute little ants! I also pulled in images from Unicorn Picnic and the dirt pile “ant hill” from A Bug Deal. I stamped all my images in Jet Black ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For my focal panel, I took the Meadow Backdrop: Portrait and die cut it out of some Bristol Smooth Surface cardstock. Using the Cloudy Stencil, I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide into the sky. Then I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass. I also added some splatter effect for a little extra detail.

I adhered that to a Mermaid card base and spelled out the word ANTICS with Finley’s ABCs in both Raspberry and Chili Pepper cardstock and glued them together slightly off-set so that the Chili Pepper became the drop shadow. I adhered that across the sky, and white heat-embossed the rest of the sentiment onto a strip of Black Licorice cardstock. Then I filled in the rest of my scene with those adorable food-heisting picnic interlopers!

If you’d like to see how this card came together, I have a video tutorial for you on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty yourself and make the sentiment the star! We can’t wait to see what you create! The Make the Sentiment the Star challenge will be open until Sunday, September 6 at 11:59PM ET.

The Cat in the Hat with Samantha!

Be sure to join us the Lawn Fawn blog for Inspiration Week, March 11 – 19!

Hey everyone, Samantha here with a card that is inspired by the current Inspired By a Book, Movie or Song challenge! Growing up I loved all Dr. Seuss books, the bright colors and illustrations were always fun to look at. The stories and how they were written always brightened my day. They always had a positive message, so I wanted to make an encouragement card with characters from the Cat in the Hat

In order to create my Dr. Seuss inspired characters, I needed to pair a whole bunch of stamp sets together. The proportion of the cat head, from the Meow You Doin’ stamp set, fit perfectly on the bunny body from the Eggstra Amazing Easter stamp set. I used the top hat from the Bicycle Built for You stamp set, and extended it to be taller and more whimsical.  The cookie jar, from the Milk and Cookies stamp, set was the perfect shape for the fish bowl. I used a pen to draw lines to replicate the illustration style in the Dr. Seuss books. By adding the linework, it really helped bring the characters to life. 

I just love this challenge so much. The design team and current entries are so much fun and so inspiring. You still have time to enter the Inspired By a Book, Movie or Song challenge! The challenge will be open until Sunday March 15th at 11:59PM ET. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
