Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 56 – Beautiful Beaches

Hi Fawnatics Friends! Welcome to Challenge 56! Now that the Northern Hemisphere is officially in summer we thought it would be fun to challenge you to make projects with a beach theme! You can incorporate the the color inspiration if you choose or just go with the Beautiful Beaches theme!

We would love for you to share your beachy 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 14th 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!

Now let’s check out the Beautiful Beaches inspiration by our talented Design Team!

I don’t know about you, but I want to hang out at Jessica‘s amazing beach! She used the Sunrise Backdrop to create an amazing background along with the Tropical Backdrop! The cute little Smooth Sailing critters add just a bit of whimsy!

Samantha‘s amazing beach scene features a fun interactive pull-tab! She combined Mermaid for You and Screen Time to create the children, so clever! The dolphin from Critters in the Sea jumps with the help of the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On! I love the punny sentiment using Harold’s ABCs!

With a simple ink blended background and cute images, Karin‘s Life is Good card is totally charming! Clean and simple design at it’s best!

Christy used the beautiful color inspiration on her gorgeous card! The colors in the ocean are so amazing! “Seas the day” with the adorable sailboats and tiny critters from Smooth Sailing!

Franci‘s fantastic shaker card is so adorable made with just die sets! She started with the Shadow Box Card Park Add-On to make the stitched window, then the scene is a combination of Palm Trees, Scalloped Treat Box Beach House Add-On and Stitched Wave Borders! The greeting is Scripty Hello and she filled the shaker window with Chunky and Prisma glitter!

Samantha‘s adorable ocean scene combines Smooth Sailing with the cute Whale You Be Mine whale! She framed her sweet scene with the window from Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On and added cute detail with Lawn Trimmings Sky cord!

Joyce created an adorable beach scene using On the Beach and Sunrise Backdrop! I love how she used the sunrays to create a bright sunny day at the beach! All of the colorful beach accessories add to the fun of this amazing card design!

Grace made a super cute beach scene for a couple of the Life is Good crabs to frolic in! Underneath the Stitched Simple Wavy Border she hid a Slide On Over Waves channel so the crab and his buddy can slide around with the help of an acetate strip! She also used the Tropical Backdrop and Finley’s ABCs!

With a minimum of stamping, Jenn created the quintessential beach scene! She used a combination of Stitched Wave Borders and Stitched Simple Wavy Borders, a Stitched Hillside for the sand and Spring Showers for the sun and clouds! I love how she added the greeting from You Are Sublime on the sign post from Open Me! The palm branches are found in the Hammock and Trees die set!

Jenn used Lawn Fawn inks to add color to everything! She used Butter, Jalapeño, Fish Tank, Peacock and Minty Fresh!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 55 tomorrow!

Adorable Party Name Tags with our Guest Designer, Mona!

We hope you will join us on Thursday for the start of our June Inspiration Week! We will be showcasing the rest of our Summer 2019 Release with Design Team inspiration, Intro Videos and lots of giveaways! It all happens at the Lawn Fawn blog, see you there!

Our amazing Guest Designer, Mona Toth is back today to share a set of adorable name tags that are Perfect for Parties!

Mona started the process with coloring. She stamped the images from Octopi my Heart, So Jelly and Year Six with Jet Black ink, then colored them with Copic Markers. If you would like to see her coloring tutorial check out her video HERE.

When the coloring was done she picked colorful papers from the Really Rainbow 6×6 paper pad to coordinate the cute critters.

Mona die cut 8 colored speech bubbles and 8 white speech bubbles from the Open Me coordinating die set to layer for each name tag.

In the end she adhered everything together with Lawn Fawn Glue Tube and personalized the cute tags with handwritten names.

Thank you so much for sharing these adorable party accessories with us today, Mona! And big thanks and hugs for being an awesome Guest Designer for the Perfect for Parties challenge!

The Perfect for Parties challenge will be open until Sunday, June 16th at 11:59PM ET. We are looking forward to seeing what you create! You can find the challenge post HERE!

Have a wonderful week!
