GOODIE BAG (6)

The new Lawn Fawnatics challenge is live over at their blog and the theme is "Fun Fold". I didn't really know what to do with it. After thinking about it, I came up with this Goodie Bag. I combined it with the Woodland Critter Huggers die set.


Besides the little sentiment, I didn't do any stamping on this project. I started die cutting all the elements I needed. The Goodie Bag was die cut from Canned Pumpkin cardstock. For the fox I used the following Lawn Fawn cardstocks: Canned Pumpkin, Vanilla Malt, Ballet Slippers, Mermaid, Cilantro, Sticky Note and Black Licorice.


I also die cut a heart shaped tag, using the Tiny Tags dies. I die cut it from Ballet Slippers cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Tiny Tag Sayings onto it. I tied some twine to it.

I assembled the goodie bag and the fox and adhered them together. I added some white hightlights to the fox. I put some tissue paper inside the Goodie Bag.

This Goodie Bag will make a perfect gift someday.


Please make sure to check out the Lawn Fawnatics blog for the new challenge. And maybe you can join me and my fellow design team members.

CONGRATS (3)

I created this clean and simple card with the Sohcahtoa stamp set from Altenew.


I took four Lawn Fawn inks to stamp my triangles with. I used Forget-Me-Not Ink, Grape Soda Ink, Carrot Ink and Ballet Slippers Ink.


I took the outline triangles and added them on top of the solid ones, getting them a little off centre to give it a more messy look.


I die cut the sentiment from Black licorice cardstock, with the Congrats die from My Favorite Things. I die cut it three times and adhered them on top of each other, to create dimension wihtout foam tape.


I added the die cut word onto the panel and adhered the panel onto a Blue Jay cardbase. I rounded off the top left corner and bottom right corner.

As a finishing touch, I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the card. I used four colors, to coordinate with the ink colors I used. I used Ripened Pumpkin, Midnight Blue, Bubblegum Blush and Sweet Lilac.

This card was done within 20 minutes.

YOU'RE THE BERRY BEST (1)

For this friendship card, I let my Instagram choose a stamp set for me again. They picked Sweet Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


I started by stamping all the sweet friends,the strawberries and a banner from Bannertastis. I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color them. Here are the colors I used:
Donut: 026 - Light Pink/ 072 - Beige
Flan: 062 - Dark Brown/ 091 - Light Grey
Froyo: 025 - Pink/ 050 - Yellow/ 036 - Light Blue
Cupcake: 026 - Light Pink/ 072 - Beige
S'More: 062 - Dark Brown/ 072 - Beige/ 091 - Light Grey
Strawberries: 020 - Red/ 041 - Light Green
Banner: 050 - Yellow/ 052 - Bright Yellow


I die cut the images with my Cuttlebug and went over to my background. I die cut a piece of watercolor cardstock with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I used 050 - Yellow to create a ground for the sweet friends to stand on. I added some splatter to the background, using Mustard Seed Distress Ink and Candied Apple Distress Ink.


I adhered the images onto the background and added it onto a piece of Watercolor Wishes paper. The panel was adhered to a Sunflower background.


Super simple, but super lovely. I'm really into watercoloring lately, with my Zig Markers. It's nice to change up a bit sometimes and use something else than my Copic Markers.
