Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Cake Slice Box

As a fun, surprise addition to this Inspiration Week, Lawn Fawn has added in a bonus day to show off even more wonderful products from the Summer Release. As usual, Lawn Fawn has created pure magic for us to work with. The Cake Slice Box Die Set is no exception. 

My favorite type of cake is carrot cake. I mean come on! It's practically healthy! It's got protein from eggs, dairy from milk, and carrots to round off an almost balanced taste of heaven... Haha! In line with my favorite, I wanted to design my cake slice to be carrot cake. Yummy!

I die cut a piece of Lawn Fawn's Paper Bag Cardstock using the rectangular die with the sections in the middle. I then used Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Carved Pumpkin, and Antique Linen Distress Oxide Inks to splatter the paper. To add an even lighter shade to the mix, I watered down a little Lawn Fawn Yeti Ink and splattered that on top. Vwahlah! Carrot Cake!

I then die cut the frosted portions of the cake from Lawn Fawn's Vanilla Malt Cardstock and using my Copic Markers, I gave the edges a little color to make the cake look even more realistic. I then die cut a carrot from Lawn Fawn Cilantro and Fake Tan Cardstock using the carrot die from the Stitched Garden Border Die Set and sponged the edges using Lucky Clover and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Ink.

The best part about the new Cake Slice Box Die is that it forms the cutest little box that you can put some sweet little treats in. I don't know about any of you, but one of the hardest parts of constructing a box is making the lid slide on. The dies cut the paper perfectly for the top and bottom parts of the slice and the top slips on so easily! The guess work has been taken out of the process for you. Thank you Lawn Fawn!

I truly appreciate all of you and your sweet comments! This is the last day for this round of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week. We will be back next month with another Inspiration Week featuring the Summer Release. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Tropical Backdrop Die

Ahoy, Maties! Haha! Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn's May Inspiration Week! Today, the design team is featuring the new Tropical Backdrop Die. I love a good scene building background die and Lawn Fawn makes the best! I love how the summer release is so thoughtfully geared towards the beach and fun in the sun!

When I saw this die, I immediately wanted to use the previously released Ahoy, Matey Stamp and Die Set to create a fun scene. I really love how it turned out! I added in some additional images from Happy Village and Butterfly Kisses Stamped Sets to finish off the scene. 

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope that you found some inspiration here. I truly appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog! Don't forget to leave a comment on Lawn Fawn's blog for another chance to win some prizes that will be announced tomorrow. I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your week!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Smooth Sailing Stamp Set/Stitched Simple Wavy Borders/Slide On Over Waves

Welcome to the part of Inspiration Week where we are showing another one of my new favorite sets, Smooth Sailing. I just love the nautical feel of the set, but I can imagine using the smaller bunny and bear images in so many ways! We are also showing off the new Stitched Simple Wavy Borders and Slide On Over Waves Die Sets. They are amazing for creating fun interactive scenes! 

I used some additional images from Butterfly Kisses, Mermaid For You, and Push Here stamp sets to round off the scene. As you tilt the card to the side, the sweet little boat moves along the track created by the Slide On Over Waves Die. Love it!

As soon as I saw the little lighthouse in this set, I knew that I wanted to use Chibitronics to make it light up, so I did just that! The heart image and sentiment from the Push Here Stamp Set lets the recipient know what needs to be done for another fun surprise. A double interactive design! YES!

Thank you for visiting my blog today! Head on over to Lawn Fawn's blog for another change to win some amazing prizes by leaving a comment over there.

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Peacock Before N' Afters Stamp Set

Hello again! The Lawn Fawn Design Team is highlighting the new Peacock Before 'N Afters Stamp and Die Sets. This set is a continuation to the previously released Get Well Before 'N Afters Stamp Set that was designed to be used with the amazing Magic Picture Changer, but any of these stamp sets can be used without the Magic Picture Changer as well.

I don't know about you, but I have been secretly longing for Lawn Fawn to introduce a peacock image to the family. Their critter images never disappoint in the cuteness department and the punny and wonderful sentiments are just as adorable!

I wanted to create a celebratory card that could be used for multiple occasions. I tend to lean towards these so that I have more to pull from in my card stash. I created a scene with mostly floral and vegetation images to really highlight the peacock.

As you pull the tab at the top of the card, the peacock fans it's beautiful feathers to show off a truly impressive plumage. This makes the completion of the sentiment at the bottom even more evident and funny! 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today! Please go to the Lawn Fawn blog and leave a comment. I would love for you to win one of the prizes for this Inspiration Week! Have a wonderful day!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Say What? Pets Stamp Set/Speech Bubble Backdrop

We continue to carry on with Lawn Fawn's May Inspiration Week with the introduction of another adorable addition to their product line. The new Say What? Pets Stamp and Die Sets and the Speech Bubble Backdrop Die. This backdrop die is so fun! You can use it with any of your favorite sentiments or as a stand alone background. 

For my card, I wanted to highlight the adorable little cat/kitten image from Say What? Pets. I colored four of them as the babies to one of the cat images from the previously released Meow You Doin' Stamp Set. I have them calling out variations of "Mom" in the speech bubbles in this fun Mother's Day card. (I think any mom could relate to that. 😉) I used the Happy Happy Happy, Happy Happy Happy Add-On: Family, and Say What? Pets Stamp Sets for the sentiments.

I also added in a rainbow of flying yarn balls, cat bed, and one cute little mouse as accessory images from the Meow You Doin' Stamp Set. I used the Happy Mother's Day Line Border Die to ground the scene at the bottom of the panel. 

Thank you for stopping by! As always, head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog and leave a comment for a chance to win and I will be back with more inspiration for you all tomorrow. Have a great day!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Keep On Swimming/Reveal Wheel Keep On Swimming Add-On/Templates

Hello again! I am super excited to share my card with you today! The stamp set that we are showcasing is one of my favorites from the release. I love fish and water themed sets. As soon as I saw the Keep On Swimming Stamp and Die Sets, Reveal Wheel Keep On Swimming Add-On Dies, and the new template stencils from this release, an idea popped into my head! The fish makes me think of Dr. Seuss's Cat In The Hat with it's adorable little facial expressions. Especially the forward facing fish. 

I added in some adorable little kids from the Bicycle Built For You and Screen Time Stamp Sets and the the cat is from the Meow You Doin' Stamp Set. I am super excited that the Keep On Swimming stamp set includes a table. I would love to see a furniture set come out from Lawn Fawn in the future. This is a great start for those you enjoy building scenes in their card designs.

As you spin the reveal wheel, the little fish changes...

And changes again! The Keep On Swimming Stamp Set includes an adorable puffer fish and clam that change that can be used with the Reveal Wheel Die Set or any of Lawn Fawn's interactive die sets.

Thank you once again for visiting my blog today. I hope you aren't tired of the reminder, but head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog and leave a comment because there are chances to win prizes there the whole Inspiration Week! I'll be back tomorrow with more to share, so please stop back by then!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Center Picture Window Card Die Set

Welcome to another day of inspiration from Lawn Fawn! Today, I have a fun card to share using the new and incredible interactive Center Picture Window Card Die Set. This set is seriously so much fun! The card is smaller in stature, but jam packed with possibilities. It is perfect when you need a fun card that can be as simple as complex as you like.

I made an adorable little farm themed card using some older sets. If you have been around Lawn Fawn for any time at all, you have probably seen that you can use any previously released products with any of the new products. I have said it before, but it bears repeating. Since you can continue to build and grow your collection and it works seamlessly together, Lawn Fawn is an investment. (Feel free to use that as your mantra. Wink, wink!)

The first pic shows the front of the card. Who wouldn't love a sweet "Hay there" message from these cuties?

As you open up the card, a whole dimensional scene comes to life! Lawn Fawn is wonderful about packing their die sets with building elements to create fun and easy projects. YES! I used trees from the previously released Shadow Box Card Park Add-On Set to frame up the center window. Your imagination is the limit on what you can do with this set!

Thank you again for stopping by today! It means the world to me to read your comments. Please visit the Lawn Fawn blog and leave a comment for more chances to win all week! Have a wonderful day and see you tomorrow!
