Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 84 – Back to School

Happy Monday, Fawnatics friends! It’s that time of the year for back to school! It might look a little different this year but the feelings are the same; kids, parents and teachers are excited for another adventure in learning! We invite you to create a card or crafty project with a “back to school” or “teacher appreciation” theme for this challenge!

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 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, September 20th 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!

Let’s see how our awesome Design Team was inspired by this challenge theme!

Joyce used images from our Village Heroes set to create a beautiful thank you card! She added the tree and a pair of apples from Tree Before ‘n Afters!

For her card, Samantha designed the perfect study space! She used the desk, typewriter and lamp from You’re Just My Type and added the bird and book from Science of Love! I love how she added a “window” with a view to the tree outside! The Outside In Stitched Apple is a great backdrop for this fun scene!

Village Heroes is the star of Jessica‘s bright and cheerful card! The bold colors are so striking and the basket of apples from Thanks a Bushel are the perfect addition!

Often overlooked but an important part of education is the fearless driving teacher! Christy‘s fun design is the perfect way to thank the teacher who makes sure drivers know the rules of the road! She combined Car Critters with Village Heroes and Road Border.

Franci‘s fun back-to-school design features Science of Love and a couple of birds with chemistry!

I’m sure a teacher would love to receive this card with its sweet message! Caly‘s card starts with Really Rainbow paper peeking through the Outside In Stitched Circle window. The cute mice from You’re Just My Type and Love Poems are perfect to start the day with a smile!

How amazing is Samantha‘s school-themed scrapbook layout?! She created a cool design using Quinn’s ABCs stamped with Manatee ink. Then she added the title with Cole’s ABCs. Finally she added some color with Really Rainbow paper and some fun with the paper airplanes from Plane and Simple!

Karin‘s Shadow Box Card is a great way to send a sweet thank you to a special teacher! The little scene features Village Heroes, Forest Border and Road Border. The cute owl from Jump for Joy is a fun addition!

Jenn‘s fun and colorful card spells out an encouraging message perfectly! She inked the background using the Cloudy Stencil and Grassy Stencil. Then she added the Stitched Rainbow cut from bright colors of cardstock and some cute images from Village Heroes! Louie’s ABCs are the perfect size to send this positive message!

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 83 tomorrow!

Let’s see how our talented Design Team members were inspired by this challenge!

Karin‘s beautiful ocean scene takes inspiration from both the color palette and the pretty image! In addition to the gorgeous stenciled clouds she combined Tropical Backdrop and Smooth Sailing!

Joyce‘s Goodie Bag is decorated with a fun scene in the inspiration colors featuring Happy Trails and Stitched Mountain Borders! Who wouldn’t love a gift packaged up like this?

Samantha‘s magical sky is inked with Distress inks then stenciled using the new Starry Sky Stencil and glittery embossing paste! I love how she used blues and purples to create a cool rainbow! The clouds are from Plane and Simple and the sentiment is from Fairy Friends!

Christy used the inspiration colors to create a beautiful fairy tale design! Her card features Build-A-Castle, Little Dragon and Tiny Fairy Tale!

I love to be at Disneyland as the sun is setting, it just seems so much more magical! Caly‘s beautiful Coaster Critters scene captures that feeling with this cool sunset sky!

Jessica was inspired by the image to create this gorgeous cloud-filled sky! For the clouds she inked the background in the challenge colors using the Cloudy Stencil! She filled in with Puffy Cloud Borders cut from vellum. For the water she inked a Stitched Wave Border then added the sun from Spring Showers and stamped a few seagulls from Life is Good!

Samantha‘s Ocean Shell-fie critters are colored using all the inspiration colors! She framed this fun scene with a Stitched Scalloped Square Frame layered with Shimmer cardstock! The seaweed and coral are die cuts that can be found in Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On!

I love that Franci used an older set for this beautiful clean and simple design! The Halloween images in Spooktacular bring out the orange and blue in the color palette while the inked background adds in the purple hue!

Jenn‘s happy Stitched Rainbow design gets lots of bold color from the alcohol inked background! Check out the colors she combined in the next photo!



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 81 tomorrow!

Jenn’s Bright Summertime Fun Card

Jenn shares an awesome Summertime Fun card to inspire your weekend crafting! The Summertime Fun challenge wraps up on Sunday, August 2 at 11:59PM ET. There’s still time to enter!

Jenn combined I Scream You Scream with Stitched Rainbow to create some fun summertime treats! Her awesome watermelon uses just three “bows” and half of a circle inked up in pretty pink inks! Those shiny watermelon seeds are the smiley face “cheeks” included in the Stitched Rainbow die set. They are cut from Black Licorice cardstock and coated with Glossy Accents; such a clever detail!

This popsicle looks so yummy! Jenn ink blended summery colors, then kicked up the fun with Tim Holtz Rock Candy glitter and more Glossy Accents!

The greeting is a combination of Big Scripty Words and Quinn’s ABCs! She stamped the large Quinn’s letters in Sunflower ink and filled them in with Prisma Glitter!

Thanks so much, Jenn, for sharing this super happy design filled with favorite summer treats!

A new challenge starts on Monday, August 3 with amazing Design Team inspiration!

Supplies:

Have a happy, crafty weekend Fawnatics friends!
