Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 102 – All Things Ocean

Hello Fawnatics Friends! It’s time for a fresh new challenge! This time we want you to use all those ocean themed Lawn Fawn sets to create fun cards and projects! Anything ocean-themed works for this one: underwater, on the water and on the beach!

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, June 20th 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 amazing Design Team was inspired by this new theme!

Franci created a fun underwater scene featuring our Mermaid for You set! She added some whimsy with a sand castle made with Build-A-Castle! The cute puffer fish peeking through the window is from Keep on Swimming.

Samantha incorporated our new Giant Sending Big Hugs sentiment into her beautiful ink-blended ocean scene! She combined Ocean Shell-fie, Fintastic Friends and Life is Good to add all the cute critters!

Our cute Get Well Before ‘n Afters set features this adorable whale! Caly created an underwater scene for her Magic Picture Changer card! She filled in with fishy critters from You Are Sublime and Ocean Shell-fie!

Joyce created a slimline underwater birthday scene! With cute ocean critters from Ocean Shell-fie, You Are Sublime and Mermaid for You it’s quite the party! She used Ocean Wave Stencils to add the fun backdrop and Virtual Friends for the computer and sentiment!

Karin‘s sweet and simple framed design uses Smooth Sailing to depict a lovely day on the water!

Samantha‘s gorgeous glittery ocean is framed by Tropical Backdrop palms and the Hello Border! She added a lighthouse from Life is Good along with the kraken and ship from Lovable Legends to create a mythical scene!

Christy‘s beautiful underwater scene sends a sweet message with Giant Sending Big Hugs! She combined cute aquatic critters from Ocean Shell-fie and Fintastic Friends on a gorgeous inky ocean backdrop!

Jessica‘s beautiful design takes us to the ocean depths on a yellow submarine from You Are Sublime! Watch out for the kraken, he just wants to say happy birthday!

Jenn‘s three cute kitties are enjoying some fun at the beach in her fantastic design! She used Sunrise Backdrop to add the sunshine! She created this happy summer scene with Meow You Doin’, On the Beach and Life is Good!

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 101 – Travel Destination/Favorite Place tomorrow!

Jessica’s Purr-fect Wedding Card!

This is the final weekend for the Outstanding Occasions challenge! We will have a brand new challenge for you on Monday, but for now we have the most awesome inspiration for you by team member, Jessica! Her bright and bold design is a perfectly unique wedding card!

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Outstanding Occasions challenge!  I realized recently that my wedding and anniversary card stash was getting low so I figured I’d use the challenge to build up my stash again!

I love puns and thought it would be fun to build a card around ‘meow and furever’ for a cat-loving friend!  To start I blended picked raspberry and festive berries distress oxide ink onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock.  I let it dry and then die-cut my sentiment from Finley’s ABCs and the Hearts die set.  I arranged my letters to get a two tone effect from the ink colors and then die-cut the hearts from just one color.  I adhered them to a white card base and used Milo’s ABCs and A Bug Deal to complete the sentiment.

Next I stamped the images from Meow You Doin’ and Bicycle Built for You with Copic friendly Jet Black ink.  I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I used toner grays for the cats and then RV and cool greys for the rest of the images to keep the palette simple.  The RV shades matched my distress inked hearts nicely!  I added the cats and accessories to my card and finished it with a few white gel pen accents!

And that’s it!  You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend! –Jess

Have a wonderful crafty weekend!
