Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Candy Corn and Pumpkin Spice

Hello there!  Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn inspiration week!  Today, I have two cards to share with you as we highlight the adorable Pumpkin Spice and How You Bean: Candy Corn Add On stamp sets!  Both, along with the rest of the fall/winter 2017 release will be available on August 24th!  Let's get started, shall we?

For my first card, I started off by ink blending a piece of watercolor paper with some brown Distress Oxide inks.  I splattered some water to lift some of the color, and when it was dry, I diecut it with the Outside In Stitched Rectangles dies.  I added a strip of patterned paper from the new Perfectly Plaid Chill paper collection to ground my image.  To set the fall forest scene, I used the new Birch Trees dies (LOVE THESE!) and diecut three trees.  Then I diecut a pile of tiny leaves using the Stitched Leaves dies, then inked them with a variety of fall colored Distess Oxide inks.  I added a few to the trees, and a few to the right side of the panel on top of my patterned paper.  On top of them is the adorable little Pumpkin Spice mug.  I think I will be using this set a TON!  While I am not too keen on Pumpkin Spice anything, this cute little mug can be filled with coffee or hot chocolate too, and whipped cream of course!  I think it's perfect for so many occasions!  I added a jute twine bow, and stamped a sentiment from the Milk and Cookies stamp set on a hand cut banner.  I added a little coffee steam from the Love You a Latte stamp set.  I think the sentiments in that set would work perfectly with Pumpkin Spice too!  Finally, I added some white gel pen accents and mounted that panel on a kraft card base.

My second card today features the new How You Bean: Candy Corn Add On stamp set, as well as the new Cute Cobweb dies (another favorite!).  I started off by diecutting a piece of white cardstock with the Small Stitched Rectangles Stackables, then inked it with Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide inks.  I splattered it with water to bleach out some areas, and added a spattering of Black Soot Distress Oxide ink mixed with a little water.  When it was dry, I added a strip of striped patterned paper from the Let's Polka in the Dark patterned paper pad.  Then, I used the Cute Cobweb die to cut two spider webs and that cute little spider.  I stamped and colored the candy corn, and diecut it with the coordinating dies.  On top of the candy pile, I added a cute puppy from the previously released Happy Howloween stamp set. I adhered them with foam tape, then stamped a sentiment from the Booyah stamp set onto a hand cut banner.  I matted the panel with another Stitched Rectangle Stackable cut from back cardstock.  Before mounting that panel to the white card base, I added a splattering of black paint to the card base for some added fun.  Finally I added some white gel pen accents, a scattering of sequins and a bow using some Black Tie twine.
