Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 122 – Spring Inspiration & Color Board

April showers, rainbows, flowers and Easter eggs; this month let these images along with the color selections inspire your crafting creativity!

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, April 17th at 11:59PM ET.

For each challenge, we will randomly select an entry to receive a $50.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop! Everyone who enters a challenge has a chance to be the random drawing winner! Woohoo!

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 what our amazing Design Team was inspired to create!

Mimi was inspired by the rainbow image to create a charming sidewalk chalk art design! She used the cute kids from Joy to All and Screen Time for the little artists and she altered the candles from Birthday Before ‘n Afters and the wand from Fairy Friends to make the chalk! And then she used die cuts as stencils to color in the chalk drawings on the watercolor paper “sidewalk”. The greeting is a mix of Henry’s ABCs and Color My World.

Karin was inspired by the Easter eggs to create this beautiful card! She used Eggstra Amazing Easter and Butterfly Kisses to make the scene and then she added the sentiment from Bicycle Built for You!

Franci wishes you a very happy Spring with this adorable design that features A Bug Deal! She used sweet pastel colors inspired by the color board!

The color palette is great for creating adorable Easter cards! Joyce‘s design is so sweet with the cute Tiny Spring Friends arranged on and around the Giant Happy Easter greeting! The two rows of Simple Grassy Hillsides add dimension and fun design to her card!

Christy was inspired by the flowers and colors to create this cheerful scene! She included Garden Before ‘n Afters, Berry Special, A Creature was Stirring and A Bug Deal. She made the scenery with Cloudy Stencil and Grassy Border.

Samantha‘s card is so whimsical and fun! She incorporated the color palette and the flowers along with the adorable Chirpy Chirp Chirp chicks! I love how she added extra detail in the background with Just Stitching Double Rectangles!

Samantha M was inspired by the rainbow image and created a fun twist on the theme! She stamped several rainbows with All the Clouds, coloring each one in a different rainbow color. Such a clever idea! She added the raindrops with Rainy Sky Stencil and Stencil Paste in white.

Catherine was inspired to create an adorable scene! She combined Tiny Spring Friends, Village Shops, and Car Critters in cute scenes in the Peekaboo Backdrop windows! Then she filled in with lots of cute details from Happy Trails, Giant Easter Messages, Coaster Critters, Simply Celebrate Spring and Chirpy Chirp Chirp!

Jenn created a beautiful pair of cards that show us the difference between Distress Oxide Ink Spray and the original Distress Ink Spray! The Distress Oxide sprays have a softer, muted look compared to the bright color of the original sprays. Jenn’s design is so unique; she kept the Rainbow white with glittery detail and added the rainbow color in the background! Then she used Riley’s ABCs to stamp the custom greeting.


We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 121 – Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!

Jenn’s Clever Card Inspired by True Crime

We hope you are having fun with the Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song challenge and we can’t wait to see your creativity! This challenge will be open until this Sunday, April 3 at 11:59PM ET.

Jenn joins us today with a super clever card inspired by her interest in true crime!

To create her “crime scene” Jenn combined Happy Village, Village Shops and Village Heroes sets. This is such a clever way to send apologies; her “Mea Culpa” greeting is spelled out with Finley’s ABCs.

Jenn even included the murder weapon; can you spot it? It’s from Pick of the Patch!

The crime scene tape is made using Harold’s ABCs along with yellow and black marker.

I love that Jenn includes her Copic marker list to make it easy to recreate her designs!

Thanks so much, Jenn for sharing your clever and unique inspiration today!

And for all the true crime fans out there, Jenn created a playlist of her favorite podcasts on Spotify.

Jenn has two new online Lawn Fawn classes coming up! Berry Fun and Rain or Shine! Have you signed up yet? These classes are open to everyone, worldwide! More details here
