Reverse Confetti August SFYTT!

August SFTYY



Hello there!  Today I have a card to share with you following the Reverse Confetti August SFYTT!  Here is the sketch:
And here is my card:

 I started off with a white card base.  I added some plaid patterned paper to the bottom right corner to follow the sketch.  Then I diecut the Double Panel Circles dies from aqua and green cardstock and adhered that on top of the patterned paper.  I diecut the large tag from the Tag Me Confetti Cuts die set from white cardstock and added some blue ink with an ink blending tool  I added some more patterned paper to the bottom of the tag as a ground for my chick to stand on.  I stamped and colored the bird from Tweet Life and diecut him with the coordinating Tweet Life Confetti Cuts.  I stamped the birdhouse directly on the tag, and paper pieced it with some polka dot paper.  I added a trio of clouds from the Weather it Together stamp set to cover up the hole in the tag.

You Rule! {Reverse Confetti}


Hello there!  Today I have a card to share with you using some of the August Release from Reverse Confetti!  I started off my card by diecutting the ABC Cover Panel from white cardstock and adhering it to a white card base.  Then, to create a chalk board, I diecut the All Framed Up Confetti Cuts from brown, kraft and back cardstock.  I nested the diecuts inside eachother, and swiped the black panel with white pigment ink to look like chalk dust,  I stamped and colored the worm, apple, ruler and pencil from the Worm Wishes stamp set, and diecut them with the coordinating Worm Wishes Confetti Cuts.  I popped them all up with foam tape, then stamped and embossed the "you rule" sentiment from the set in white embossing powder.  Finally, I added a scattering of tiny wooden stars.


You Rule

I just love that little worm!  How cute would he be on a bookmark?  I love the white on white look of the cover panel on the card base.  It adds something extra, without taking the spotlight off of the focal point.

You Rule


That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Hello there!! One more day until the Lawn Fawn Fall/Winter release!  There are so many amazing things coming your way!!  The new release will be available in the Lawn Fawn store, tomorrow, August 25th!

Today the team is showcasing the new Stitched Hillside Popups and Everyday Popups dies!  These dies are so much fun!

To create my card, I first cut and scored a horizontal A2 sized card.  I used the Snowy Backdrops die for my sky.  I cut it from white cardstock, and then used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add a pale blue hue to the snowy background.  I added a row of trees using the Forest Border.  Then I diecut the Stitched Hillside Popups from white cardstock, and adhered them in front of my forest border.  Kelly Marie is sharing a great how-to video on the Lawn Fawn blog today.  These dies are so easy to use!  Be sure to check it out!!  Then, I stamped and colored images from the Cheery Christmas stamp set, another one that is coming out tomorrow.


Hillside Popups

I stamped a sentiment from Cheery Christmas in the bottom right corner of my card using Black Licorice and Lobster inks.

Hello there!  Every day we inch closer to the new Lawn Fawn release being available!  Today, we are showcasing the new Thanks a Bushel and Cutie Pie stamp sets, which will be in the Lawn Fawn store on August 25th!

I started off my card by watercoloring a pale yellow background on watercolor paper using Squeezed Lemonade.  I diecut the Leafy Tree Backdrops Portrait from the Perfectly Plaid Fall papers, and used that as a guide to watercolor the tree top of grass too.  When everything was dry, I glued the tree to the watercolor piece.  I stamped and colored the cute little apple basket from Thanks a Bushel, along with the single apple from the set.  I also stamped and colored the little sheep from Baaah-humbug along with the tiny pie from Holiday Party Animal.  Oh, and the trio of birds from Hello Sunshine.  I arranged my scene, and adhered everything with foam tape.  I diecut the leaves from the Leafy Tree Backdrop from Noble Fir cardstock, and finally, stamped a sentiment from the new Cutie Pie stamp set.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Perfectly Plaid Fall


Hello there!  Lawn Fawn inspiration week continues!  Remember, all of the new products that we have been highlighting this week will be available for purchase on August 25th!

Today, we are showcasing one of three new paper collections, Perfectly Plaid Fall.  This beautiful paper collection will be available in both 6x6 and 12x12 sizes.  There are also 2 new cardstock and ink colors - Narwhal and Storm Cloud.  I have used Storm Cloud on my card today.

I started off by watercoloring a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper with Peacock Feathers distress ink.  When it was dry, I diecut it with the new Dotted Rectangles Stackables dies.  I stamped, colored and diecut a bunch of images from the Happy Harvest stamp set, which was released last year.  I paper pieced the scarecrow's shirt and pocket with papers from the 6x6 Perfectly Plaid Fall Petite Paper pack, and also used the same paper for the ground that my scene is built on.  I stamped the corn stalks with Celery Stick ink, and the sentiment is stamped on a hand cut banner using the new Storm Cloud ink.  Such a beautiful, dark, warm grey!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Scalloped Treat Box


Hello there!  Welcome back to day 3 of Lawn Fawn inspiration week!  Today we are featuring the adorable new Scalloped Treat Box and the new Put a Bow On It dies (I didn't use this yet, but look for it on a future project).

To create the treat box, you simply run the die through your diecut machine twice and fold the pieces on the score lines.  Then glue the sides together!  I diecut my box pieces from the new Perfectly Plaid Christmas 12x12 papers.  Then I stamped and colored the bucket of apples from the new Thanks a Bushel stamp set.  I added a Stitched Scalloped Border cut from kraft cardstock and glued that to the bottom of the front of the box.  I popped the apples up with foam tape.  I created a little tag using the new Tiny Tags dies, and stamped a sentiment from the new Tiny Tags Sayings stamp set.  Then I tied it on the box with some Peppermint Lawn Trimmings.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Happy Holwoween and Stitched Tree Borders


Hello there!  Today is day 2 of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!  All of the products that you will so over the next few days will be available for purchase on August 25th!  Today, the design team is showcasing a super adorable new halloween set called Happy Howloween, and the new Stitched Trees Border dies.  I used both on my card today, along with other new products!

To create my card, I started of by inking up a piece of watercolor paper using Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire distress inks and a sponge blending tool.  After I blended the ink, I splattered some water on the paper to bleach out some spots.  I diecut 2 of the Leafty Tree Backdrops - Horizontal from black card stock, along with the Stitched Trees Border, also from black cardstock.  I turned one of the Leafy Tree Backdrops diecuts around, and adhered the "good" side down to the watercolor piece.  On top of that, I adhered the Stitched Trees Border diecut, and then finally, the other Leafy Tree Backdrop diecut, right side up, using foam tape for some dimension.  I diecut one of the new Dotted Circle Stackables from watercolor paper, and inked it with Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey Distress inks, then slid that underneath the trees, and glued it down with a glue pen.  I diecut the smallest Simple Puffy Clouds from vellum and adhered them with a glue pen as well.  I stamped and diecut one of the little dogs from the Happy Howloween stamp set, along with his witch hat, cape, and dog bowl, and colored them with Copic Markers.  I stamped and colored 2 jack-o-lanterns, also from the set, and fussy cut those because I felt like they looked better without the white border.  I pulled out a few other Lawn Fawn Halloween sets, to fill is some spots in my scene.  The little speech bubble and spider on a string is from the Booyah stamp set.  The tiny pumpkin on the left behind the tree is from Happy Harvest stamp set.  I added accents with a white gel pen to finish things off.
