Caly‘s gorgeous card is directly influenced by the inspiration image using the beautiful cool color palette! She used Distress ink in Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire and Broken China for the Mini Snowflakes and used Tumbled Glass to add the frosty color to the background! Happy Holidays Line Border provides the holiday greeting!

Samantha C featured our sweet snow bunny from Critters in the Arctic in her lovely wintry scene! For the background she used Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop, Mini Snowflakes and birch trees from Joy to the Woods!

Jessica create a fun seaside scene for her cute puffins from our new Valentine set, Stud Puffin! She used Stitched Wave Borders and Just Stitching Hearts to complete this lovely design!

Joyce created an adorable Christmas card with the Hang in There sloth! She added fun holiday accessories from Cheery Christmas, Toboggan Together and Say What? Christmas Critters! The little birds from Open Me are ready to celebrate!

Samantha M used alcohol ink to create a frosty North Pole sky! Then she used the Snow Cool penguins, igloo and “snowpenguin” to fill the happy scene!

Franci used the blues and greens from the Inspiration Board in soft shades then added a pop of golden yellow! The Sealed with a Kiss cuties are ready for the holiday festivities!

Christy‘s card is “unbelievably” awesome! She combined critters from Lovable Legends, Yeti or Not and Believe in Yourself to create this “legendary” scene!

Karin cleverly incorporated the inspiration colors in the scarves on the Mice on Ice! Her Reveal Wheel card uses Snowfall Backdrop, Forest Border, Reveal Wheel Square Add-On and Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments!

Jenn inked up panels of white cardstock with Lawn Fawn ink in Moonstone, Forget-Me-Not and Deep Sea then used them to die cut the Stitched Snowflakes. For the background she ink-smooshed with Lawn Fawn Peacock ink then spritzed it with water mixed with Liquid Stardust! The Scripty Thanks in Cilantro cardstock adds a beautiful pop of brightness!

There are so many of your entries that we would love to share but the photos you’ve linked us to are either too small or they don’t have enough space around them to allow for a consistent look on the blog. Here are some tips for uploading photos that we can share as Featured Fawnatics!

-Set up your photo with some space all around your project to allow for us to crop as needed
-Make sure your photos are at least 1000 pixels wide (we prefer sharing photos that are uniform in size)
-Use a light color as the backdrop for your photos; this helps your cards and crafts to stand out

Thank you for sharing your amazing creativity with us each month. We appreciate it so much! If you have any questions about uploading photos, please leave them in the comments below.

Happy Crafting from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!

Jessica’s Edward Scissorhands Scalloped Box Card!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Inspired by a Book, Movie, or Song challenge! It’s been so fun figuring out how I can adapt Lawn Fawn sets to fit some of my favorite movies! Today I’ve created a box card pop-up featuring one of my all-time favorites: Edward Scissorhands!!

To start I stamped the mermaid and merman from Mermaid For You, the houses from Happy Village, and lots of scissors from Holiday Helpers with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers, added a few Edward Scissorhands accents to the merman, and die-cut them with the coordinating dies.

Next I stamped the giraffe from Critters on the Savanna, the dino from Critters from the Past, the seal from Sealed With a Kiss, and Nessie from Lovable Legends with Celery Stick ink and colored them with Copic markers to recreate the topiaries that Edward creates in the movie. Once I was done I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and added a little YG11 Copic to the edges of the dies to keep them from being too clean cut.

Next I die-cut the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up with the Spring Fling paper pack and the inner mats of the box card with the Spiffy Speckles paper pack in green and blue. I also used the Simple Stitched Hillside dies to create grassy hills for each layer. I stamped the sentiment from Coaster Critters onto one of the mats with Versafine and heat-embossed it
with clear embossing powder. Then I adhered the box together. I added some of the topiaries to the side panels and tucked the rest around my houses. Finally I added Edward and Kim to complete the scene!

And that’s my card! You have until Sunday, March 17th at 11:59PM ET to get crafty with your Inspired by a Book, Movie, and Song creations and I can’t wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
-Jess
