Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 126 – Beach vs. Mountains

It’s new challenge time once again! As we head into summer in the Northern Hemisphere, vacation plans are being made!

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 our Design Team members’ favorite place between beach and mountains!

Catherine makes it clear that the beach is her favorite! Her adorable sandy shaker card features the bears from Snow Much Fun and Den Sweet Den enjoying fun in the sand! She set the scene with Palm Trees and images from Life is Good, On the Beach and Dad + Me. She spelled out SAND with Henry’s ABCs before adding acetate and glittery “sand” to create a fun shaker element!

Looks like Christy loves a relaxing day fishing at a mountain lake! At least the cute Den Sweet Den bears do! She used Stitched Mountain Border and the “lake” from Dad + Me along with images from Toadally Awesome, Swan Soirée and Beary Happy Holidays to create a cute card for dad!

Samantha lets us know that hanging out at the beach is a “swell” way to spend the day! She combined Den Sweet Den with Life is Good and, On the Beach, to make this charming scene. I love how she inked the background to give a hint of sand and surf!

Franci‘s clever Shadow Box Card shows the new Simply Celebrate Critters dogs living their best life in a mountain meadow! She included Shadow Box Card Mountain Add-On and Park Add-On along with the Mushroom Border to create her favorite place!

Joyce brought the Pool Party critters to the beach in this adorable scene! She added some ink blending to create the ocean and sand before letting the critters choose their activity either sunbathing, snorkeling or lounging on a float!

Mimi did some super clever repurposing to create this sweet canoe scene! She turned the grill from Let’s BBQ into the cute little canoe that’s perfect for the Crazy Antics mice. Then she used images from Let’s Roll to build the boat dock, so clever! She created those awesome southwest mountains with rocks from Mermaid for You, Christmas Fishes and Big Thanks.

Samantha set the scene for sandcastle building fun with Ocean Shell-fie, On the Beach and Life is Good. For the inky background she used Distress Oxide ink in Kitsch Flamingo and Prize Ribbon before layering Palm Tree Border on top!

Karin‘s gorgeous card features the “You Goat This” goats in an amazing mountain scene! For the background she used Over the Mountain Borders. But Karin couldn’t decide between the Alps and Aruba. Check out the next card…

For this nod to her favorite island, Karin combined Flamingo Together with Palm Trees dies. I love how she created a little scene for the mini slimline card!

Was there any doubt that Jenn would create a beachy or ocean themed project? She created these two fabulous mini slimline cards using Smooth Sailing. The ocean scenes were made with Ocean Wave Stencils and Stitched Simple Wavy Borders.

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 125 – Dies Only tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to create your happy place!

Mimi created the most amazing birthday gift wrap in happy colors! She added fun images from Wild for You, Year Four, RAWRSOME, Simply Celebrate Summer and Offset Sayings: Birthday! She also included a cut bow in Holographic cardstock from Put a Bow on It, and a gift tag made with an ice cream cone from I Scream You Scream!

Catherine created a whole party with a “strawberry shortcake” theme! For the clever shaker invitation, she used Outside In Stitched Strawberry, Stitched Strawberry Frame and Strawberry Patch to carry the theme. She created “Strawberry Shortcake” with Bicycle Built for You, Berry Special and Special Delivery. There’s also “let’s party” from Party Animal along with Flirty Frames, and “date” and “address” from Plan On It and Plan On It: Appointments.

For the fantastic party decor, Catherine used more strawberry die sets along with Milk Carton, Cake Slice Box and Stitched Scalloped Cupcake Wrapper!

Aparrotly, Franci used our new Year Twelve set to feature on her adorable birthday card! An ink blended Snowy Backdrop makes for a cheery layer of color on this clean and simple design!

Joyce created the sweetest birthday card featuring You Goat This! The mini slimline card is the perfect size for this happy little party!

Samantha‘s birthday card is “on point” with the adorable cactus from Year Ten! She added lots of style to her simple design with ink blending and Lots of Hearts stenciling!

Jessica‘s legendary birthday card combines Lovable Legends with Giant Happy Birthday to You! This design is perfect for all those men on your birthday card list!

This charming card by Karin is simply adorable! She used Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables, Butterfly Kisses and a birthday greeting from Special Delivery Add-On.

It’s birthday party time in the aquarium! Samantha created this cute card using Fintastic Friends, Party Animal and Virtual Friends Add-On. I love how she added the Ocean Wave Border and Outside In Stitched Thought Bubbles to enhance the underwater theme!

Christy‘s gorgeous card wishes a berry happy birthday with a cute Berry Special scene! The pretty patterned papers in the background are from Flower Market!

Jenn got creative and made a set of cards to give as a gift! They are beautifully made using Clover Background Stencils and Giant Thank You! They will be great for sending a special thank you for all the birthday gifts!
