Hello Fawnatics friends! It is time for a new challenge and we hope this one will inspire lots of fun and creativity! This time let’s Make the Sentiment the Star of the project! Let’s shine the spotlight on the sentiment: make it a custom greeting, use dies to spell it out or in some way call special attention to the sentiment!

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 3 weeks and be open until Sunday, September 6th 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 a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge! Say hello to Nancy van Oosten! You know her as @creastudionancy on Instagram and we are sure her amazing creativity has wowed and inspired you! You can also find her creativity at her blog and YouTube channel.

Nancy created a magical scene with a gorgeous color palette featuring Gnome Sweet Gnome, A Bug Deal and Fairy Friends! She filled out the landscape with Stitched Tree Borders and Mushroom Border! I love how she called attention to the Lucky Stars sentiment by framing it with the Stitched Rainbow! So very clever!

Now let’s check out some beautiful inspiration by our amazing Design Team!

Joyce filled this super happy card with lots of creative fun! She used Oliver’s Stitched ABCs to spell out part of the greeting, replacing the i with the cute jumping bunny from Really High Five!

Samantha‘s pretty card features lots of fun dies and one adorable little ant from Crazy Antics! This design has a Fancy Lattice Backdrop in neutral cardstock colors of Kraft and Paper Bag. The Scripty Hello and Stitched Speech Bubble Frame are cut from Vanilla Malt cardstock to continue the neutral colors. Samantha backed the speech bubble with vellum to allow the greeting to stand out!

It doesn’t get much more charming than Franci‘s Dandy Day design! She spelled out “hello” with Finley’s ABCs die cuts and framed it all with a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame!

Christy‘s Scripty Hugs greeting blends seamlessly into the inky background of her amazing Ocean Shell-fie card! She used Large Slimline Sliders and Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders to create this long underwater scene! I love how she combined a sweet sentiment from Mom + Me with the die cut word!

Karin‘s delightful design uses a fun image from Fortune Teller Tabby that calls attention to the sentiment! Her beautiful inky background and die cut stars add to the mysterious look of this beautiful card!

Caly‘s joyful design combines Happy Village with Village Heroes in a slimline design on a stenciled cloud backdrop! The charming greeting is a combination of Scripty Sweet and Oliver’s Stitched ABCs.

Samantha‘s awesome Halloween design spells out BOO using Oliver’s Stitched ABCs! I love how she dressed the letters up with in costumes from Booyah! To make the cool background she used the inside part from a Stitched Cloud Frame as a mask to do some fantastic ink blending!

Jessica created a custom greeting from an inspirational quote! She spelled it out with Finley’s ABCs dies and Milo’s ABCs white heat-embossed on the cool galaxy backdrop! The Out of This World and Upon a Star images add lots of cuteness to this special card!

Jenn‘s cards are filled with bold, bright colors from alcohol inks! The beautiful design features a simple die cut hello that is found in the Magic Color Slider die set.

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 82 tomorrow!

Fun with Food Inspiration with Leontine: A Pull Tab Card with Chocolate Unicorns!

Our amazing Guest Designer, Leontine joins us today to share some adorable Fun with Food inspiration! She created a pull-tab card featuring chocolate unicorns from our Unicorn Picnic set!

Leontine describes this totally sweet card: “For this card I had the idea to make chocolate unicorns. I started coloring them first and built the rest of the scene around them. I wanted to give it an interactive element, so I added a pull-tab that makes a cloud pop up with some delicious treats. It’s a really sweet scene (literally) with yummy food and a soft pink cotton candy background. I used the starry sky stencil to add some more sparkle. It was a lot of fun to create this card and I wish I could eat those treats!

Leontine combined Unicorn Picnic with Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters along with and Puffy Cloud Borders and Scripty Sweet! I love how she added icing and sprinkles on the “chocolate” unicorn! When the pull-tab lifts, a whole dessert buffet is revealed!

She created her card on Chocolate Bar cardstock (seems appropriate!) and used Oh Gnome and Eggstra Amazing Easter to piece together the white embossed sentiment on the inside!

Leontine created a video tutorial for this card. You can find it at her YouTube channel, click HERE. Thanks so much!

Thank you so much, Leontine for sharing your amazing creativity with us for the Fun with Food challenge! Your cards are so inspiring!

The Fun with Food challenge will be open until Sunday, July 19th at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join the fun! Click HERE for the challenge post.
