Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 88 – Oh Christmas Tree

It’s the start of a brand new month and time for a holiday challenge theme; Oh Christmas Tree! For this challenge, make the tree the star of the design!

We invite 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 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, November 15th 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 amazing inspiration by our Design Team!

Karin‘s rainbow trees are from our Snow Day stamp set! That pretty greeting is also found in this cute and classic set! This is such a beautiful slimline design!

Samantha backed her charming Christmas Fishes seaweed tree with lots of sparkle! Her cute little scene includes the happy Winter Narwhal!

Franci‘s whimsical little scene features the tree from Christmas Dreams. I think those cute Snow Cool penguins might have some trouble fitting it inside their home! That perfect greeting is from Merry Messages!

I love how Caly made the tree cookies the star of her card! This adorable design features How You Bean? and the Christmas Cookie Add-On! She created a kitchen counter backdrop with the Brick Stencil and Woodgrain cardstock!

Samantha M created a gorgeous rainbow of trees from the Snow Day set! The beautiful sentiment is from that set as well. She added pretty texture in the background with Snowflake Trio Stencil!

Joyce made her Christmas Dreams tree stand out with some beautiful ink blending with Victorian Velvet and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink! The cute Cheery Christmas critters are busy trimming the tree!

Christy‘s warm and rosy scene is a combination of Christmas Dreams and Den Sweet Den! The pretty tree takes center stage inside the Stitched Den!

Jessica‘s underwater scene shines the spotlight on the unique Christmas Fishes tree! She combined lots of fish-filled sets to complete this festive holiday gathering!

Jenn‘s gorgeous design features the sweet Christmas tree from the Trim the Tree set! She used her inky magic with Distress regular and oxide inks on the tree and the colorful background. She finished the card with a sentiment from Winter Scripty Sentiments and the Snowflake Border!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 87 tomorrow!

Ashley’s Fun Rudolph Themed Card

Our Guest Designer, Ashley is back with us today to share an amazing card based on the old 1960s animated movie Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer! She totally captured the fun and quirky characters using Lawn Fawn sets!

To set the scene, Ashley used Stitched Mountain Borders and Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. The scenery picks up the pastel colors in the challenge inspiration! Rudolph is played by our Cheery Christmas deer and his elf friend, Hermey is one of our Holiday Helpers! The gifts and toys are from these sets as well. The trees are from the Snow Day set and the sweet greeting is found in Making Frosty Friends (which is the theme of this vintage holiday animated classic!)

The lion, King Moonracer and the misfit polka dotted toy elephant are from the Wild for You set!

The Gnome plays the role of Yukon Cornelius, an arctic prospector who protects Rudolph and his elf friend Hermey from Bumble the abominable snowman, played by our cute Yeti!

Thank you so much, Ashley for sharing this super clever and fun card design, it’s amazing! We are so happy to have you join us as Guest Designer for this Wonderful Winter challenge!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to our friends and fellow Fawnatics!
