My dad sure hit the jackpot creating me! He’s so lucky…
… but so am I to have a dad like him!
Today I have another video tutorial for you! This card was so fun and QUICK to create… I think it only took me 35 minutes!
Please enjoy the video and don’t forget to give it a thumbs up or subscribe if you haven’t already!
Here is my close up of that glossy accents. It adds so much detail and dimension to your cards!
I really hope you enjoyed this card and I hope everyone has a wonderful Father’s Day!
The two dies being revealed today on the Lawn Fawn Blog work SO WELL together! The rainbow is so fun and gives you tons of pieces when cut from a bunch of colored card stocks. You are easily able to create 7 cards when cutting this die from 7 different colors and mixing the pieces up! I just love it! It just makes me happy!
Don’t forget – there is another giveaway today on the Lawn Fawn Blog so check it out!
Welcome to the next day of Inspiration Week over on the Lawn Fawn Blog! Today we are showcasing two of our new stand-alone dies that will change your die-cutting life!!
The Milk Carton Die is perfect for party favors, treats, or even as storage for beads and sequins! It is also amazingly easy to put together, just like our Goodie Bag Die!
Here I used another new set from the release to make a cute treat box full of gumballs! How cute is the sneak of this stamp set?! A lot of people requested a set like this so I cannot wait to show you the whole thing!
I do have a card using the Stitched Border Dies that are also being showcased today, but I am saving it for Monday’s post when the stamp set is revealed 😉
I hope you enjoyed this little treat box and I hope everyone checks out the Lawn Fawn Shop on the 4th to get their hands on it. I promise you will get SO MUCH use out of it!
Today on the Lawn Fawn Blog, we are revealing the brand new Party Animals Stamp and Die sets that will be released next week!
This set is so fun and cute! It is not only great for birthday cards, but the critters go along with so many other Lawn Fawn sets!
For this first card, I wanted to really showcase the set! There are so many images in this set, I would challenge anyone to use all the images on one card!
I used a coloring technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire that adds so much texture to any image. I got a little obsessed and dotted all the COPIC coloring on this card. Even the grass got some dottin’!
Okay, so I just could not stop with the dot coloring! I made this card for a young friend graduating from 8th grade soon! I love how the critters from the Party Animals Stamp Set go so perfectly with any of the hats from the Hats Off to You Set.
This card also gives you a look at one of our new stand-alone word dies! The Lawn Fawn handwritten sentiments in the stamps and dies are so great because they can be playful and girly while working on masculine cards just as well!
I want to point out that our card camera has been having some issues, so I’m sorry ahead of time if the picture quality of my cards is not 100% this week!
I hope you love this new set, and I cannot wait to see what you create with it when you get your hands on it next week!
Thank you so much for checking in with me, and make sure you check out the Lawn Fawn Blog for fun inspiration and giveaways all week!
I hope everyone enjoys this special day filled with family and fun!

I am so excited to be part of this special blog hop celebrating Lawn Fawn’s 5th birthday!
I made a similar card when I first got my hands on this Year 5 Stamp Set and it has been used a lot in advertising this release, so I thought this would be the perfect time to show how that card was made.
Thank you so much for tuning in! Have a great day and enjoy the hop!!
Next stop is Samantha!

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!

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!
