Fawny Summer Week {Day 4}

Hello everyone! Welcome to our special Fawny Summer Week! This week is all about sharing fun, sunny, Summer projects! The Design Team and Inspiration Team will share lots of ideas using our new Summer products along with daily giveaways and videos! (Make sure to comment for a chance to win a stamp set with coordinating dies of your choice, and a 6×6 paper pad of your choice!)

To start things off for Day 4 of Fawny Summer Week, Chari created an amazing alcohol inked lantern featuring Toucan Do It and Tropical Leaves Backdrop! Check out her video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you for watching!

Chari‘s alcohol inked lantern is the perfect companion for an LED light! The translucent panels, bordered with Tropical Leaves Backdrop allow the light to shine through!

Chari added Tropical Vine Borders and some Toucan Do It critters to the inside as fun silhouettes!

Latisha’s bright and happy design makes me smile! She used Tropical Leaves Stencil to add bold pigment ink leaves on kraft cardstock! The inked Slimline Tropical Leaves Borders add the perfect frame for the Long Distance Hugs greeting!

This whimsical design by Samantha cleverly combines Toucan Do It with S’more the Merrier! She added some sparkle by die cutting a Magic Iris Tropical Leaves Add-On from Autumn Sparkle glitter cardstock. The pretty polka-dotted Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper makes a sweet backdrop!

Lynnette‘s beautiful birthday card features Giant Birthday Messages! I love how she paired it with colorful Really Rainbow paper!

Jessica created a beautifully subtle background using Simple Stripes: Diagonal! By leaving the stripes white she let her gorgeous Happy Hibiscus and Tropical Leaves be the star! The perfect finishing touch is Scripty Hello in glittery Autumn Sparkle black cardstock.
