A Beautiful Winter Skies Card by Samantha!

Hello Fawnatics! We hope you had a lovely Christmas and are enjoying a wonderful holiday season! Today Samantha Mann joins us to share her gorgeous card inspired the our current challenge, Wonderful Winter!

Samantha combined Winter Skies with Upon a Star to create this amazing winter scene with the cute polar bears cuddling up for some star-gazing!

For the background, Samantha blended Distress inks in Wilted Violet and Milled Lavender then she white heat-embossed the constellations from Upon a Star over the top! She used the Snow Cool igloo for some added fun and whimsy! To give it more depth she fussy cut around the “door” and popped it on top of the Stitched Hillside Border! Such a clever idea! The sentiment from Winter Skies is perfect for sending love to friends and loved ones this winter!

Thank you so much Samantha for inspiring us today with your beautiful card design!

Our Wonderful Winter challenge runs for 3 weeks and continues through Sunday January 6th at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 41 – Shaped Cards

Hello Fawnatics Friends! It’s time to start a new challenge! This time we are looking cards that have a fun shape! A box, a Christmas tree or a pumpkin! A star, a heart or a circle! Have fun with this theme and let your creativity soar! This new challenge will be open until Sunday, December 2nd at 11:59PM ET. Your card should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers.

For each challenge, we will randomly select a winner 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 excited to welcome Grace Camou as our Guest Designer for this challenge! She is a very talented cardmaker and has been wowing us with her amazing creativity! You can find her on Instagram as @allbygrace! Be sure to check out her Instagram, you will be so inspired! Now let’s share her amazing card for this challenge!

What looks like just a regular card is actually a Storybook Shadow Box card to which Grace added a decorated cover flap! How cute is that gingerbread and candy vignette?!

Grace used the banner die that comes in the Double Slider Surprise die set to add the sweet sentiment to the “book cover” flap on the front of the box! This design is just so fun and unique!

When the card folds flat for mailing, the Sweet Christmas sentiment on the side of the box will be visible as the card is removed from the envelope! Too clever!

Grace used our Sweet Christmas stamp set to build an adorable layered scene on the inside! She created a lovely pink and teal color palette using papers from a few different collections! She also added the Sweetest Flavor ice cream cone to the inside panels in pretty pastel shades!

Now let’s see what our awesome Design Team created to inspire your creativity!

Samantha‘s fabulous Christmas scene was created on an Outside In Stitched Cloud shape! She used Winter Village and Winter Skies for the scene!

Jessica used a Stitched Circle for her adorable shaped card! She combined the mug and fun sentiment from Thanks a Latte with glittery snowflakes!

Franci created a sweet snowscape inside a Shadow Box Card using the cute penguins from Snow Cool! The pretty pastel colors are perfect in this frosty scene!

Karin‘s beautiful little Winter Skies scene looks so adorable in the heart-shaped card! She used an Outside In Stitched Heart with a Lacy Heart to create the card base.

Samantha C got really creative and made her card base using the Candy Box die! She used Holiday Sparkle cardstock to add the glittery silver to the sides and the sweet Holiday Helpers fit perfectly on this unique card design!

Joyce used our new Outside In Stitched Christmas Tree for her festive and fun shaped card! She added a Bannertastic banner with a greeting from Thanks a Latte! The fun accessories under the tree are from the Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-On set!

Christy used the Shadow Box Card dies to make the box base and add the snowy trees! The Shadow Box Ocean Add-On was used to create the sweet scalloped window! She filled the scene with critters from Joy to the Woods and finished with a sentiment from Ready Set Snow for her fantastic holiday card!

We will have Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and of course we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 40 tomorrow!
