Christy’s Wizard of Oz Inspired Card

We hope you are having fun with the Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song challenge and we can’t wait to see your creativity! This challenge will be open until Sunday April 3 at 11:59PM ET.

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Inspired by a Book, Movie, or Song Challenge! Since the Wizard of Oz is my favorite movie, I wanted to try to recreate one of the most iconic scenes in the film.

I used the girl from Bicycle Built for You as the Wicked Witch of the East, and added in some foliage from You Are Sublime, Critters Down Under, and Butterfly Kisses. I stamped the images in Jet Black Ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the yellow brick road, I blended Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink onto a panel of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock, then added Fossilized Amber over top using the Brick Stencil. For the grass I used Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Rustic Wilderness on another piece of Bristol. Then for the house, I took some White Woodgrain Cardstock, cut it into strips, and distressed it with Pumice Stone. I trimmed the grass panel out with the Large Cross-Stitched Square Stackables, and the yellow brick road with one of the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders.

I layered the yellow brick road in the bottom right corner of the grass panel, added my Wicked Witch of the East, and then glued the strips of Woodgrain Cardstock over top at an angle for the house. Then I added some greenery around the edges of the house, just like you see in the movie.

Then I took a sheet of blue patterned paper from the new Gotta Have Gingham Rainbow Petite Paper Pad that reminded me of Dorothy’s dress and trimmed that down with the largest of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I adhered that to a Cilantro card base to represent the Emerald City and glued the focal panel on top.

The sentiment I took from Scripty Autumn Sentiments. I white heat embossed part of it on Black Licorice Cardstock and stamped the rest in Lobster Ink and trimmed that out with its matching die. Then to finish up the card, I added some red stickles to the ruby slippers to give them that classic shimmer.

I also stamped one of Dorothy’s friends on the inside. To see which one, you can check out the video tutorial on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty. If you haven’t yet entered our Inspired by a Book, Movie, or Song Challenge, there is still some time! We can’t wait to see what projects you’ll come up with!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Christy! This design is so clever!


Tea and Gratitude Inspiration with Nancy

I have been tasked with sharing some inspiration for this last weekend of the Coffee, Tea and Treats challenge! I used my favorite papers from Sweater Weather Remix to make a couple of cups of tea! This challenge will be open until Sunday, October 31 at 11:59PM ET.

I love to keep things simple so I used Outside In Stitched Mug and Sweater Weather Remix 6×6 papers to create the two tea cups. I added a Scripty Autumn Sentiments greeting and little leaves from Fall Leaves Backdrop. That’s it, easy peasy!

I am so filled with gratitude for this wonderful Lawn Fawnatics community! Thank you all so much for joining our challenges and sharing your amazing talent and creativity with us!


Have a great weekend! We will see you back here on Monday with a new challenge!

Let’s see what our amazing Design Team created to inspire us!

Christy‘s absolutely gorgeous card says Autumn loud and clear! She used lots of new sets, You Autumn Know, Scripty Autumn Sentiments and Fall Leaves Background Stencils to create the feeling of Fall! She brought in the challenge theme with Thanks a Latte mugs filled with steaming coffee and cocoa!

Franci‘s pair of cards feature a charming mix of Love You a Latte and Snow Day bunnies along with Milk and Cookies! I love the diagonal stripes of the Let it Shine paper framing the collage panels!

Samantha‘s treats have a decidedly Halloween theme! Her fantastic scene features Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters with images from Purrfectly Wicked, Purrfectly Wicked Add-On and treats from A Creature Was Stirring! The Bayou Backdrop in purple glitter cardstock creates lots of spooky vibes!

I love how Karin paired the Den Sweet Den bear with the cookie and jar from Milk and Cookies! The steaming hot beverage looks so cute in this sweet little scene!

What is better than enjoying a cup of hot chocolate on Christmas morning? These cute kids are happy and cozy on the sofa by the Joy to All Christmas tree! Joyce included the family cat in the fun in this happy scene!

Samantha‘s shaker card is so clever! She used Outside In Stitched Mug and Stitched Mug Frame and filled the shaker with cocoa-color sequins and snowflakes! The adorable little marshmallows add to the fun! The cool peppermint stripe background was created using Simple Stripes: Diagonal!

Caly‘s cheery design features Thanks a Latte mugs in a Reverse Stitched Scalloped Circle Window! The Let it Shine Snowflakes papers add to the frosty fun of this gorgeous card!

Jenn is sending sweet encourage-mint with our new How You Bean? Mint Add-On and a Lovely Latte paper-pieced mug! I love the pretty minty green and brown color combo that she carried out with Cracked Pistachio Oxide ink and Chocolate Bar cardstock! The Quilted Backdrop lets a little more minty green peek through while the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop grounds the vignette!

I hope you have been inspired by these amazing projects! We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 110 – Spectacular Skies tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!
