We are so happy to have a very talented Guest Designer joining us for this challenge! Say hello to Ashley Young! Her whimsical scene cards always make us smile and we know she will inspire you too!

Ashley‘s slimline scene features an amusement park filled with happy Tiny Friends! She used Coaster Critters images to set the scene along with the castle from Life is Good! A couple of princesses from Tiny Fairy Tale look right at home!

The “magical” greeting looks amazing with Chunky Glitter adding lots of sparkle! She combined the Finley’s ABCs with a sentiment from Unicorn Picnic!

Now let’s check out some inspiration from our very own experts in “creating scenes”, our wonderful Design Team!

Karin‘s fantastic scene features our cute Wild for You critters enjoying the nightlife with a fruity beverage! She created a silhouette with the Tropical Backdrop and Little Town Border filling the night sky with lots of stars!

Christy gathered some cute critters to do some gardening! She started with Some Bunny for all the gardening images, then added friends from Jump for Joy and Crazy Antics! She filled in the background with Grassy Border. I love how she used the “chip bag” from Crazy Antics to create seed packets, that is just so clever!

Samantha‘s kitchen scene starts with combining the Sprinkled with Joy stove with “cabinets” made using You’re Just My Type! Then she added lots of mice and yummy baked goods from A Creature Was Stirring and Bubbles of Joy! She used Spring Sparkle and Textured Dot Pastel cardstock for the background and finished the card with You’re Sweet Line Border!

Joyce set the scene for her Virtual Friends design with a patterned paper wall and White Woodgrain cardstock floor! She added cute details to her scene using books and the lamp from Den Sweet Den. While the cat from Keep on Swimming is celebrating a birthday with friends online his cute puffer fish is sending birthday greetings from his fish bowl!

Warm weather is coming so Samantha created an amazing beach scene! She filled the sunny sky with some puffy clouds from All the Clouds then she added waves and the sand with layers of Stitched Hillside Borders for the On the Beach fox and a rainbow colored umbrella!

Sometimes an amazing scene doesn’t need lots of scene building dies! Franci assembled whimsical images from Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters with Baked with Love and Unicorn Picnic for maximum cuteness in her clean and simple style!

Jessica used Puffy Cloud Backdrop: Portrait to build this happy scene! The lovely pastel colors of the clouds are carried throughout the Bubbles of Joy bubbles and Scripty Bubble Sentiments! She added a sentiment from Thanks a Bushel as a finish for her adorable thank you card!

Caly stenciled pretty clouds using the Cloudy Stencil and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. Then she tinted the hills of the Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape with Mowed Lawn. This sweet scene comes together with images from Butterfly Kisses and Butterfly Kisses Flip-Flop!

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 98 – Happy Spring tomorrow!

Stirring Up Holiday Critter Fun in the Kitchen with Jess!

We hope you are having fun with the Happy Holiday Critters challenge! It will be open for 2 more weeks so you have plenty of time to get crafty with your critter sets and play along!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Holiday Critters challenge! This is such a fun way to focus on all the adorable critters Lawn Fawn has to offer!

To start I blended Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink over the Brick stencil onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock focusing the color on the top right of each brick to give it a little color. I wanted the effect of white subway tiles in my kitchen scene! Next I used Copic markers to sketch a granite countertop and adhered it to the brick background panel.

Then I stamped a bunch of images from A Creature was Stirring, Baked with Love, and Sprinkled with Joy using Copic-friendly Jet Black ink and then colored them with Copic markers. I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and added a few accents with a white gel pen.

I arranged all the images onto my kitchen scene and adhered them with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape for a little extra dimension. Then I die-cut the Mini String of Lights from white cardstock and silver glitter cardstock. I colored the light bulbs with Copic markers and then adhered them to the silver light strand. I adhered them to the scene and then added a sentiment from A Creature was Stirring heat-embossed on black cardstock. Once everything was adhered I added a little glitter to the lights and coated them with Nuvo crystal glaze for shine. Finally I finished the card by adding a little grit paste to the spoons and scene for a little messy frosting! 😉

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!

Jess
