AND today’s post too! 🙂

Today is our first day of our showcase of “Lunar Lights”. This 4″ x 6″ set is inspired by Chinese New Year (also known as Lunar New Year) thus the name Lunar Lights! Chinese New Year was on February 3rd, so we just had to release this one now! 

We also have something else fun today! We have listed our retail stores here: http://blog.lawnfawn.com/our-retail-stores

Could Julie‘s Lawn Fawn debut be any cuter? I just adore this! The summery colors are just perfect for this set! She used Sophie’s Sentiments for her sentiment and highlighted it with the “light rays” from the set! So clever! The bows at the end of the string comes as a separate stamp so you can add it or not. I think it’s the perfect touch on this card!

Chan‘s Lawn Fawn debut is just perfect for Chinese New year! I absolutely adore her treat bag using the traditional red and gold colors of Chinese New Year. The sentiment is from Lunar Lights and is perfect for any occasion. We wanted to come up with a sentiment that could work for as many occasions as possible, and I think this is it! Chan added the tassel to the lantern to give that Asian flair and decorated the lantern ingeniously with a Petite Florals flower! Oh, and I love those Chinese candies that are in her bag! Yum! 🙂

Latisha‘s card is just gorgeous! Paper piecing the lanterns looks so beautiful! I also adore the gems going up the lantern strings! So brilliant! The sentiment is also from the set, and it just makes me smile! This color combination is just fabulous! I think we should all go try it right away!

Lea Lawson-Lantern1

Lea‘s card is so perfectly feminine! The pennants above the hanging lanterns is just beautiful! I feel like I am at a perfect garden party! I love that so many different feels can come with this set depending on how you style it! The paper piecing is just beautiful, and I love the gems at the base of the lantern string. Fantastic!

TiffanyLunarLights1

Tiffany‘s card is so fun! I absolutely adore how she added the sentiment in the lanterns! So brilliant! It fits perfectly! Her background is too fun! It looks like patterned paper, but it is the smaller lanterns from the set stamped over and over. I love that! I also love how she used the bow! Super sweet!

LF_Feb_HappyWishes_teri

I am loving Teri‘s card! Her color combo is way cool, and I love how she has the tassels in a different color. They really stand out! You can see some of the different styles of tassels that we have in the set here! I also heard at CHA that tassels are going to be the next big thing! Very exciting! The bakers twine bows are so trendy and really add another feel to the card. I love that!

LF_mgrigsby37a

Mariana‘s card is pure joy! I adore her colors and the glitter! She used our mini tassel on the small lanterns and you can see what a different feel it has! The texture on her card is so wonderful! The twine, staples, raised glitter and embossed paper is so fantastic! These lanterns are so fun to color too!

lunarlights3

Lynnette‘s card is just too fun! She shows how perfectly these stamps paper piece. Get ready to pull out those patterned paper scraps you have been saving (we all do it! hehe!) I love how Lynnette placed one lantern behind the other. It really give the card dimension without bulk: perfect for mailing! I just love the joy in this card!

Make sure you click on each of the design team’s names or pictures to go to their blogs and see the details of how they made their cards. You will walk away inspired for sure!

I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek of “Lunar Lights”. Tomorrow we have more DT inspiration and a video! For now, though, it’s giveaway time! Leave me a comment telling me if you ever hang lanterns for decoration by February 9th at 10:00pm EST, and we will randomly pick one winner!

  7. I love the new lantern stamps! Now fun. I once found some amazing 1940's lanterns at an antiques store. I had them hanging in my daughter's bedroom for a while. They always made me feel happy because the colors were so pretty.

    I cant wait to add this new stamp set to my Lawn Fawn collection!

  14. I adore this set and the design team has just outdone themselves once again! Gorgeous, gorgeous cards. It's late tonight, but I'll visit everyone's blogs personally tomorrow and learn the deets and tell them how inspired I am by their creations!

    I love paper lanterns, and I look at them in stores and catalogs every summer, but I've never hung any simply because I don't have a place to hang them. It's a wish of mine though to someday have a beautiful back patio where I can hang paper lanterns and have friends over for outdoor dinner parties!

  15. I love paper lanterns..have made them tons as a child and recently tried making them too! What fun..We hang them out at our new year's day..Love the sparkling lights when they're all up!!
    Thanks for another wonderful set!

  16. I always save up the lanterns for Chinese New Year! And it's so cool that lawn fawn are offering them now as clear stamps! This would be wonderful for making CNY cards!

  17. The Lunar Lights stamp set is really perfect for Chinese New Year and also Mid-Autumn Festival! I really hope there are some Chinese characters in this set or in future sets!

    I hang lantern (on my workstation) when Mid-Autumn Festival month arrived which remind me of my childhood memories during the festival!

  18. Love the beautiful colorful samples the design team came up with – can't wait to see the entire stamp set, it looks adorable!

    I've never hung lanterns before but love the way they look. Maybe I need to invest in some!

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  19. LOVE this set- WONDERFUL DT projects! I haven't hung lanterns in the past- I've wanted to but really didn't have anywhere to do it. Now that we've moved to a house with a partially covered deck, it may just happen.

  20. What a gorgeous treat bag and cards the DT team has made!

    I've never hang any lanterns for decorations myself, but when I was a little girl my mom would hang lanterns and garlands for my birthday. Seeing those cards and the treatbag brings back many great memories.

  21. You have all outdone yourselved once again! I love EVERY SINGLE item! All so unique, fun & beautiful!! Kelly Marie this is one beautiful set & thanks for the chance to win!

    The only lanters I've ever had were when I decorated our house for my niece's 6th b-day & I loved them.

  22. This is certainly going to be a "must have" set for me!! And yes, I had one lantern that was made of metal and had cutouts on the sides I used to hang up….I still have them but they just don't match my decor at the moment.

  23. AHHHH!!! I am so excited for this stamp set 🙂 lol I love paper lanterns although I have not decorated with them. I would love to decorate a card with lanterns, though! Can't wait for the video!

  24. Beautiful cards! This is a lovely set, I love paper lanterns, I actually have 2 white oval shaped ones hanging over my craft table. Excited about this release, but also looking forward to the other new sets I saw in some CHA pics!

  25. What a timely question for me. Just yesterday I went and purchased some paper lanterns at the Party store to use in a Hawaiian themed wedding shower. All the design team cards are very inspiring.

  26. The cards are adorable! No I don't normally hang lanterns, however we are in the process of re-working our backyard and lanterns could be in our future

  27. It's a double woo-hoo day! Not only do I love these lunar lights, but the one brick and mortar store in Illinois you have on your list is only about 15 minutes away from where my dear DIL lives. Hooray! As for hanging lantern lights, I have a vague recollection of some type of outdoor lights like that hanging in our backyard many, many years ago, so long ago in fact, I can't remember for sure. They do bring a smile to my face.

  28. WOW..this is just awesome Set. I have been on the lookout for a good Lantern set and this just might be it. I have very close chinese friends and even though I personally do not do anything for the lantern festival, I celebrate with them and looking forward to owning a cool stamp set that I can use to make cards for my near and dear friends.

  29. Lovin' this set!!!!

    My girl use to have one of those huge round lanterns from ikea in her room but she recently changed up her room so she took it down:(

  30. These are gorgeous cards!! Love the lanterns! We don't have any lanterns hanging at our house. 🙁 We do have flower and star lights in our children's rooms though! 🙂

  31. We have one lantern hanging in the nursery to shade the lightbulb. I had hoped to hang several more in another corner, but couldn't get the hooks in the slanted ceiling at 9 months pregnant.

  32. I haven't done it yet, but would love to find some cute ones for my daughter's room. Can't wait to see the rest of the stamps!!

  33. We have a small deck and in the winter we hang colorful lanterns to liven it up a bit, it is so nice looking out and not seeing blah. 🙂 Love this set, have been excited about it since I caught my first glance. Can't wait to get it, or win it 🙂

  34. how luvly the all lanterns are!!! DT's cards are amazing! I, esp. luv those ones with Cheerful colors! Maybe cuz, it's too cooold here and thinking of SPRING to arrive every single day!! lol 🙂

  35. Fabulous!!! I love the fact that the set includes both large laterns and a banner-like row of small laterns. Very trendy! Alas, I never hang lanterns. They do, however, really add a festive touch to a party.

  36. What a gorgeous peek – this set is sure to be a winner judging by those inspiring cards!
    I love lanterns and have a set of fairy lights in the shapoe of mini lanterns – so pretty! Thanks for the giveaway chance

  37. I have never hung lanterns in my life. I have hung a pinata before, lol! Cute set Kelly! And your DT outdid themselves this time! Gorgeous projects!

  38. I love this set! The cards are gorgeous–wowsers! I've never hung lanterns, but I grew up in the southwest and we put out luminarias at Christmas time. The rectangular lantern in your set reminds me of one (if it was on the ground). Your stamps are so great!

  39. Oh how I love paper lanterns! We use them every year for my daughter's birthday party (this year was orange, yellow, green and brown for her Monarch party), our annual neighborhood party, and for our annual Tierney Tiki Party! We love parties… This will be an excellent set to make the invitations this year, thanks for the opportunity to win!

  40. Oh my goodness, this set looks super duper cute and the samples are FANTASTIC!!!! I've never hung lanterns before, but I always LOVE the way they look in magazines and design catalogs!

  41. Long, long ago, when I was in my twenties, I had a paper lantern light shade. I thought it was so cool. Long gone by now, and I haven't ever hung festive paper lanterns (other than kid's craft homemade). I may have to find some. These cards are some of the cutest things I've seen in a long time! I really adore them. Great idea for a stamp set; lots of versatility. A must have.

  42. Everyone's cards are so great! I actually have paper lanterns hanging in my bedroom!! They are just for decor and don't have a light in them…but I love them!!

  43. Love the treat bag and those yummy Chinese candies inside! I used to have big latern lights at a house that I rented, but I have since gotten rid of them. I can't wait to see the stamp set! Gung Hay Faht Choy!

  44. When I was a kid, we would hang lanterns at my grandmothers house in Germany for carnival…I was always fascinated by the real candles inside. I have a couple of paper lanterns now, but they don't hold lights. I've been looking for new lanterns to use this summer in our yard, so this set is very timely! 🙂

  45. recently, i used white paper lanterns at my daughter's 17th birthday party. i had twinkle lights everywhere outside and paper lanterns scattered around…SO MUCH FUN!

  46. I love these lanterns! They are so versatile! The cards are all *amazing*! My favourite is Latisha's card!

    I have hung lanterns in my bedroom and the other day I realized I had some nice blue ones I never put up. I should bring them out to chase away the winter blues. (Tho, truth be told I <3 winter!)

  47. I have always admired the adorable lanterns hanging in outside patios.They look so festive! I would love to add some to my patio this summer. Pier I usually comes out with some darling sets.!

  48. I have always enjoyed looking at fun lanterns. They are always so bright and cheerful. I have never used them myself…not sure where I would hang them outside my house.

  49. We don't hang lanterns, but we ALWAYS have our party lights (aka white xmas lights) up in the backyard and we turn those on WHENEVER people are over, and sometimes when they're not! It is just so festive!!! Love this stamp set, it makes me wish it wasn't 16 degrees here is North Texas!

  50. I love these! I was once commissioned to make a bridal shower scrapbook/guestbook with a double happiness theme. I was so sad at the difficulty of finding non-stereotypical ethnic items. These are beautiful. Wish I had them then!

  51. The holiday has two other names as well, Losar, or Buddhist New Year! Being a Buddhist, myself, I find it challenging to find many crafting items that celebrate our holidays so I can't wait to get ahold of these. 🙂 Thanks for thinking of us! (And an auspicious year of the rabbit to you!)

  52. I love ALL your stamp sets, but this one is the cutest! I can just see the lanterns hanging across my cards and other projects.
    I always look forward to new stamps from you.
