Lawn Fawn: January Blog Post

Welcome back friends! Today, I am on the Lawn Fawn blog with a fun Double Slider Surprise card featuring newly released stamp and die sets, as well as, some oldie-but-goodie stamp and die sets. If you have been following me on Instagram for any time at all, then you know how much I love the Double Slider Surprise Die Set. It creates such a fun surprise for the recipient and allows for quite a few images to be used. Also, you can pop a gift card into one of the panels. How awesome is that?

My inspiration for my card was a sweet little Valentine breakfast scene. I fell in love with the Let's Toast stamp and die set when it was released last month! How could you not just love an adorable toaster with fun images to complete it, like toast and pop tarts? I mean, COME ON! Haha!

I wanted to make this cute little avocado couple the jumping off point and then added in lots of supporting images from other sets to create a breakfast bar full of fruits, pastries, and other breakfast items. When you pull the little tabs on the sides, it reveals all of the company that the avocados have this morning.

I also used patterned paper and cardstock from Lawn Fawn to make my card. A complete list of the supplies that I used is over on the Lawn Fawn blog, so please head over there and check it out if you would like. I am so grateful for you stopping by and hope that you have a wonderful day!

Lawn Fawn Release Week: Heart Treat Box/ Tiny Gift Box Raccoon and Fox Add-On

Today I two projects to share with you using new products that will be available later this week from Lawn Fawn. 

For my first project, I used the new Candy Hearts die set (that will be featured tomorrow) and paired them with the new Heart Treat Box. This sweet little box is perfect to put a little surprise in for the special people in your life! I love how the conversation hearts look just like the Valentine candy and fit perfectly on top of the new box die! I simply cut the hearts down the center and adhered each side to the corresponding heart that fit together to close the box. So easy and they finish beautifully!

For my second project, I created a card with some adorable woodland critters. Lawn Fawn has several Tiny Gift Box Add-On die sets and, for the Valentine Release, is adding a raccoon and fox to the family! Instead of using these to decorate the Tiny Gift Box, I used these cuties to peep out of a tree that I made for the front of my card. More products from an amazing company that can be used for so many things beyond what they are originally intended. YES! I finished the front with the new Sending Hugs Line Border Die that will be featured tomorrow as well.

When you open the card, there is another surprise waiting....the critter bums are sticking out of the tree on the other side! Eek! I hope that you think this is as adorable as I do!

Thank you for visiting today and I hope that you have a wonderful day! Bye!

Lawn Fawn Release Week: I Love You(calyptus)

Hello! Today, I have a card to share with you using the new I Love You(calyptus) stamp and die sets. This mini set has the cutest koala! (I don't think you will be able to stand the degree of cuteness!)

I used several previously released sets to complete my scene including: Critters Down Under, Toadally Awesome, and Push Here. I also snuck in another koala included in the new birthday promo set being released for this year. (Last year, Lawn Fawn had a fun Panda mini set that you received when you placed an order on their website during your birth month. Make sure to visit their website and create an account, if you haven't already done so and add your birth month into your account information. You won't want to miss out on this set!)

To make the card even more fun and interactive, I used the new Let's Toast Pull Tab Add-On die set. I adhered the koala onto the face of the pull tab like you would with the toast image and trimmed the sides down that showed around the koala. I love that this die set works for other images and creates a new way to create a slider element! When you pull the tab up, the third koala pops up from behind the grass. Too cute!

Thank you for stopping by today and be sure to pop on over to the Lawn Fawn blog for more fun inspiration from the design team!

Lawn Fawn Release Week: Let's Toast/Let's Toast Pull Tab Add-On

Hello friends! Today is the start of another amazing Inspiration Week with Lawn Fawn. Yay! The design team has created some fabulous samples for you with the new Valentine's release. I have a super cute card to share with you using the new Let's Toast stamp and die sets and the Let's Toast Pull Tab Add-On die set so, let's get started shall we?

I just can't get over how adorable the toaster and coordinating images are! (There is even an avocado in this set! Eek!) My idea for this card was a happy little breakfast scene. I added in the coffee cup from the Thanks A Latte Set and a sweet sentiment from the Big Scripty Words stamp and die sets. I wanted to continue the lovey feeling by substituting the tittle for the "I" in big with a heart.

As always, Lawn Fawn never misses an opportunity to throw in an element to make your creations even cuter and more interesting. This is definitely true with the addition of the Let's Toast Pull Tab Add-On. 

The die set has a die to cut a wider slit in the top of the toaster so you can insert the toast or pop tart and make it interactive. It has a pull tab and all the dies included that you need to create some very interesting and amazing cards. Your imagination is the limit on creating with these. 

Please come back tomorrow and I will have another card to share with you using this die set with another new stamp set that Lawn Fawn is featuring tomorrow! Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day!

Lawn Fawn December Blog Post: Happy Mail

It is the first Saturday in December and I am up on the Lawn Fawn blog today with a fun interactive card! I have made so many holiday themed cards lately that I wanted to make something more springy feeling. It could double as a Valentine's Day card for someone special too.  I even sneaked in a fun new interactive die that will be released this month with the new Valentine release on this card. (Don't worry. I asked Kelly Marie and she said it was absolutely fine to sneak peek it for you guys. Haha!) Are you ready to see it? Here we go!

If you have followed me for any time on Instagram, then you know my love for mixing and matching stamp and die sets to create fun scene cards. This one is no exception. I used images from the following stamp sets: Gleeful Garden, Bugs and Kisses, Fairy Friends, Rub-a-dub-dub, Easter Party, Love Letters, You Are Sublime, Toadally Awesome, and Village Shops. I stamped all of my images and colored them in with Copic markers.

I wanted to make this card interactive as a fun twist. When you pull on the pull tab to the left of the front panel, the adorable little hummingbird pulls the mail out of the mailbox. Isn't that neat?!

The die set that makes this possible is actually a coordinating add-on set to a new stamp set that is being released this month as part of the Valetine release also. (You are going to love it!) I like to think of different ways to use my stash, and this slider mechanism has so many possibilities.

For the inside of my card, I thought it would be fun to make a gift card holder and continue the garden theme there as well. I used the Gift Card Pop-Up Die to create the holder and covered the front with a grass border and more cute images that coordinate with the front. I added a sweet sentiment to finish off the inside of my card and just love how the whole thing turned out!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope that my card has inspired you to look at your dies a little differently and has peaked your interest and excitement over the new amazing products that Lawn Fawn is releasing this month. The design team has been working diligently on creating some amazing samples for you and you are not going to want to miss Inspiration Week headed your way December 7 - 13, 2018. Please visit the Lawn Fawn blog for a complete list of products that I used and I hope that you have a wonderful day!

Mama Elephant: Flip Slider Die

Hello! Happy Tuesday to everyone! I have a super cute card to share that I made using a bunch of Mama Elephant products. Some older and some newer, so let's get started! 

I had the idea that I wanted to create a bear using the Favor Bag Accessory dies. I combined dies from both the Favor Bag Accessory Dog Creative Cuts,  Favor Bag Accessory Bear Creative Cuts, and the Favor Bag Accessory Snow Deer Creative Cuts Sets. The muzzle, paws, and inner ear pieces are from the bear set. The body of the bear is from the Snow Deer set. The remainder of the bear, I created using the dog die set. To add fun interest and the appearance of depth to the sweet bear, I sponged on some Distress Oxide Ink in Vintage Photo, Worn Lipstick, and Tattered Rose.

I knew that I wanted the bear to be presenting a sweet valentine that incorporated the Flip Slider Die Set. To create the valentine, I used the Pocket Envie Creative Cuts Set and decorated it with the Favor Bag Accessory Love Creative Cuts Set. I then heat embossed a sentiment from the I Like You stamp set. So the recipient would know that the card is interactive, I used two sentiments from the Heffy Doodle Interactively Yours Stamp Set on the heart flap and the pull tab for the flip slider. To keep the pink envelope closed, I used a small adhesive magnet closure. 

The little bear is presenting a love story on the flip slider section. I used the new Little Bear Agenda Stamp and Die Sets. I colored them with Copic markers and adhered them to the little scene panels included in the Flip Slider Creative Cuts set. As you pull the tab on the right side of the card, the little bear's paw puts the flip slider into action. How adorable is that?! Below are several more photos of the slider panels that are revealed as you pull:

I die cut a piece of aqua cardstock using the scalloped stitched rectangle from the All Prettied Up Creative Cuts set and mounted it onto a piece of grey cardstock. I then mounted those onto a slightly larger piece of white cardstock to set the main design off. 

I had so much fun creating this card! I also want to try this using the other little agenda sets and the some of the other Favor Bag Accessory add on sets. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day!
