Today is the last day of Fawny Holiday Week! 😦 The inspiration has been out of control!
For my last card, I created a 4-bar size card that showcases two cute tags.
I used the Peace, Joy, Love Stamp Set to create the Christmas light background. I stamped the strung lights with the BRAND NEW Simon Says Stamp White Ink. This white ink is so incredible – it’s crisp and bold white. Look how great in looks on kraft! I then used a few COPIC markers to color in the lights.
I used the Tag, You’re It Lawn Cuts to cut the two tags out of Neenah Solar White Cardstock and a reinforcer out of Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock. For the larger tag, I rubbed my Simon Says Stamp Beanstalk Green Ink Pad all over the tag to make it the perfect color. I also stamped a faint border using a stamp from the Winter Gifts Stamp Set in white ink. Then I stamped the “love” sentiment from the Peace, Joy, Love Stamp Set, colored in the light bulbs, and covered them in Glossy Accents for shine.
For the smaller tag, I stamped a border from the same Winter Gifts Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Cobblestone Ink. I also stamped some trees from the Peace, Joy, Love Stamp Set in inks that matched the colors of the lights. I tied the tags and reinforcer together with some Green Sparkle Lawn Trimmings and used foam tape to adhere them to my card front.
Fawny Holiday Week has been so much fun for me! Thank you so much to everyone who participated including readers, artists, and all my co-workers at Lawn Fawn!
For supplies, please click the links throughout the post. InLinkz was, once again, giving me issues. 😦
I hope everyone caught my video yesterday! Today, I have one EXTREMELY simple – but probably my favorite – card featured on the Lawn Fawn Blog.
For this card I used the Let It Snow Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn and every green color of Simon Says Stamp Inks they’ve made so far! I’m just obsessed with the Simon inks. Not only do they come out beautiful on paper, but have you seen the puppy paws on the front packaging!?
Anyway, I drew a sloped pencil line and stamped the trees from dark to light starting on the left. Once the trees were stamped, I brought in some Wendi Vecchi Embossing Paste and swiped it along the pencil line I drew to make a snow bank on the front. When the paste was completely dry, I used the second largest rectangle from the Large Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts to cut out the front panel. I stamped the greeting in Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red Ink and added some clear cupped sequins to the tress. I added two panels of green cardstock to bring in more color and my card was finished.
I hope you’re enjoying all the Fawny’s beautiful cards!
IT. IS. HERE….
My first Lawn Fawn video has magically appeared this holiday season, and I really hope you love it! I’m not even going to describe it… just watch! Be amazed! Enjoy!
What did you think?!
My second card featured on the Lawn Fawn Blog today is a simple Hanukkah card. I first used some Tim Holtz Distress Inks in various shades of blue to make the ombre background. I cut it with the largest die from the Small Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts and used the Happy Hanukkah Stamp Set to heat emboss the menorah and sentiment in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. I took a Neenah 110# Solar White card base and stamped the Star of David in Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy Ink around the edges. I popped up the rectangle card front with some 3M Foam Adhesive and that was that! Beautiful!
I really hope you’re enjoying the holiday inspiration, and let me know what you think of my first video!

Today is Day 2 of Lawn Fawn’s Fawny Holiday Week, and today I have 2 awesome cards being featured!
First up is this super simple shaker card! I used the tree from Lawn Fawn’s Trim the Tree Lawn Cuts as my shaker image. I put in an assortment of Lawn Fawn sequins, and dipped the star and Scripty Joy Lawn Cut onto my Golden Glitz Delicata Ink Pad and then covered them both in two layers of Ranger Super Fine Clear Embossing Powder. I just love how simple, elegant, and fun it tuned out!
I’m sure you all know how much I love watercoloring. For this card, I heat embossed various ornament images from Lawn Fawn‘s Ornate Ornaments Stamp Set with some Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder on some Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock. I then used a medium watercolor brush, dipped it in Crushed Olive, Pumice Stone, Broken China, or Picked Raspberry Distress Inks, dunked the inked brush in water, then held it high above my project so it dripped and made a watery splash! To finish this card, I heat embossed the sentiment in the same embossing powder, used the Large Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts to cut out the panel, adhered it to a Neenah Desert Storm card base, and lastly tied some of Lawn Fawn‘s Gold Sparkle Lawn Trimmings into a bow at the top. I really like how the ornaments look like they’re hanging from the Lawn Trimmings.

I was so excited to get to test out some awesome Tsukineko products that I’ve never tried before! A long time ago I saw a video by Shari Carroll where she used water and her Memento Luxe Inks to create a softer 2nd generation. I love getting more out of my inks so I definitely wanted to try a variation of this technique, and this card is definitely an ode to her.
I used some trees from Lawn Fawn’s Snow Day Stamp Set as well as the Love Letter and Northern Pine Memento Luxe Inks. Instead of using water to spritz the stamp, I used Tsukineko’s gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz. This made my second generation not only soft, but sparkly and metallic!
To bring in more gold, I used the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink and a few more stamps from the Snow Day Set to add some fun elements.
To make my card more like Shari’s, I cut my card front into three pieces, glued down the center, put a piece of vellum in between the two remaining sides, and popped those up with some foam tape.
I still wanted more gold! 🙂 I took my Delicata Golden Glitz Ink pad and put it directly onto the edges of my card base. When I put my popped up piece over top, it masks the rough inside edges.
For the sentiment, I used Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Joy Lawn Cut. I did something a little different here, but I’ll definately use it again and again. We all know that for more intricate die cuts, it’s easier to cut it a few times and layer those pieces together – rather than trying to cut tiny pieces of foam tape. Here, I cut out three of the “joy’s” from the 110# Neenah Cardstock and covered them in the three inks I used on this card.
When I layered them, you could see all the colors from the side! This would look so cool in any colors!
I hope you liked this card and will try out some of the products Tsukineko has to offer! Thank you so much for reading and have a great day!
