Grace created a Year Thirteen card that is so clever! She accented the smiling dumplings with Let’s Roll and Stitched Teacup. I love how she used Build-A-Barrel: Apple to fashion the steamer basket, that is so brilliant!

One good pun deserves another! Kara featured Year Thirteen with a custom sentiment spelled out with Henry’s ABCs and Henry Jr.’s ABCs! And it all looks so great on a What’s Sewing On background!

Elena‘s dim sum cuties are getting “steamed” in a good way! This fun party scene includes the ladder from Apple-solutely Awesome and the sweet little banner from Fly High! She stamped out the punny sentiment on a Simple Wavy Banner.

Latisha stenciled a dreamy backdrop of pink clouds to layer her Year Thirteen dumplings on. I love how she left them uncolored other than their pink cheeks! The Fishtail Banner is a sweet and subtle accent!

Megan also used Build-A-Barrel: Apple to make a steamer basket, cutting it from Woodgrain cardstock. I love how she added the speech bubbles and birthday sentiments from Simply Celebrate Critters, that is so clever! And then she added even more fun with Year Eight‘s fortune cookies!

Dim Sum-Body say “rainbow” steamed buns? How adorable is Elise‘s cute and colorful row of dumplings!

Caly‘s card is so sweet with soft pastels from the What’s Sewing On paper. She created a custom steamer basket using Stitched Ovals. Be sure to check out the video below to see how she made it.

Yainea‘s square card with a grid design is so fun! She added a festive touch to the buns with cute little party hats!

Audrey combined Asian cuisines with Year Thirteen and Let’s Roll to create a fun international spread! With some Fishtail Banner Borders and cheery Stripes ‘n Sprinkles paper, this is one happy card!

The cute little dumplings look so cute stamped over the background! It’s a great way to add fun while featuring two of buns with the chopsticks!

And now Chari has a special project featuring Year Thirteen to inspire you!

Chari will show how to create Caly’s steamer basket and she shares her Copic color picks to coordinate with Really Rainbow paper! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

  1. I must say it’s hard to pick 1 birthday year set! Here’s is my top 3 picks:
    year seven the pinata, year six the shellfish & year three the birthday cake with slice.
    Happy 13th Birthday Lawn Fawn & to many more!

  2. That’s a tough one, but I think Birthday Before n Afters is my fave, closely followed by Elphie Selfie.

  3. It has to be Party Animals. I was Jennabled to buy it after Jenn used it in a bonus card and now I don’t know how I lived without it!!

  4. I love Year Nine – Let’s Taco ’bout your birthday, but also like Year Two for belated birthday ideas.

  5. My favorite birthday year set is the pinata and my favorite regular birthday set is really high five.

  6. I love the Planet one because I love that pun! I have never had dim sum… I don’t even know what it is… I have to look it up 🙂

  7. Hard to choose a favorite bday set as they’re all so cute and fun! The DT did a great job showcasing year 13!!

  8. My favorites are years 2, 3, and 4. I have several of the others but these are the ones I use the most to make any type of cards with.

  9. Fly High
    Love the hot air balloon. Was able to go for
    a ride years ago and it was fantastic.
    Great release.

  10. I like the Birthday Before and After set. It has had a lot of use. I love the fish-tail banner used on a lot of sets as well.

  11. My favorite birthday sets are year 3 (the cake and the slice of cake) and year 10 (the cactus). But then I also love year 11 (the planet) and year 4 (hippo birdie to you)! Pick 1 Lawn Fawn favorite?? I never can pick just one!

  12. My favorite birthday set (and maybe my favorite Lawn Fawn set altogether) is Year Four. The “Hippo birdie to you” saying always makes me laugh!

  13. Lawn Fawn has incredible birthday sets so it is difficult to pick one favorite, but I particularly like anything punny!

  14. Hard question 😅 It’s almost like asking a mother which is her favorite child 😅
    I think my favorites are probably year three, four, and seven.
    And now I feel very guilty towards the others 😩🫣😅

  15. That’s an impossible question but I’m going with Year Two as it was one of the very first Lawn Fawn sets I purchased and it’s a classic!!

  16. Mmmm.. xiao long bao are my favourite dim sum!! But for the birthday sets my favorite would have to be Year 4 – a classic!!

  17. My favorite is year 7 with the piñata. I make piñatas every year so it will probably always be my favorite:)

  18. Ha ha 😂🤣😅😆😊😁 Love it. Love the pun! I hope to one day get “dandy day”, “toadily awesome” or “hey there”. I love them all, especially the puns. What great DT creations. Dim Sum really made me smile! HAPPY 13TH BIRTHDAY!!!!

  19. Year 7. Who doesn’t like a fun pinata? I love how you can buy small ones at stores and I fill them up and give them to my friends most don’t break them just gently shake out the goodies!

  20. All the birthday sets are so fun with their punny sentiments. If I have to pick one, I pick Year Four with “hippo Birdie to you”.

  21. I love and use year 7 with the piñata the most! I have a feeling year 13 is going to become another birthday favourite!

  22. I guess I’d say your latest birthday sets are my favorites. 🙂 Year Thirteen is the cutest – we love dim sum in our family!

  23. I Love LOVE LOVE the Koala bear birthday set! Koala bears are my favorite. These 13 year inspiration cards are truly wonderful made by the most creative women!!!

  24. Year Four Hippo Birdie remains a favorite to use at my place still! Always happy to see a new one though!!

  25. I thought the dim sum were little onions. Lmao, hahaha. Well they still look like onions. I have two ways of using them.

  26. Wow, such cute cards!! Your design team is very creative!! I love the sentiments especially “you’re all that and dim sum” – it made me chuckle. I’m relatively new to cardmaking and Lawn Fawn so this is my first time seeing one of your birthday sets. Happy 13th!!

  27. Year Eleven is my favorite because my memory is like swiss cheese and I’m always sending belated cards! The way Caly created the steamer basket for her card is brilliant. Will definitely be scraplifting this one for myself ♥

  28. I don’t have a favorite because pretty much every stamp set is a favorite and if it’s not it usually is by the time I see the samples. Easily persuadable lol

  29. SWOON!! The Inspiration today is AMAZING!! It’s a TOUGH choice as I LOVE them ALL, but Year #4 (Hippo Birdie) and Year #7 (Pinata Smash) are my FAVORITE Birthday Sets!! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing and I look forward to more AWESOME Inspiration!!

  30. Everything was so cute! My favorite is this year! My husband has been obsessed with eating soup dumplings!

  31. I’m pretty partial to dim sum and have loved going since I was a kid…so I would have to say this would be my most favourite birthday stamp set!!!

  32. I love this years, as my oldest love dim sum! I also love the taco set, are you seeing a trend about food.

  33. I love year 9, the taco set the best! I enjoy sending it to someone for their birthday. They always love it!

  34. My favorite birthday set is probably Hippo Birdie, then Party Animal. Or Year Twelve’s parrot. But really all of them are great for birthdays.

  35. I love so many if them that I can’t pick just one. So I’ll pick one of my newest favorites… sew very mice.

  36. wow I bought the set and thank you all now I have lots of great ideas how I can use it, that was very inspirational

  37. I think the latest birthday set becomes my favorite…dim sum body say this is ADORABLE?!? Close second is the taco, because tacos are delicious.

  38. All of the birthday sets are awesome. My favorite is year 6. I love the little shellfish. This one is a must have too!

  39. Love Hippo birdie to you! year four set. So Adorable two critters in it. Also loving year thirteen Dim dim birthday! set too.

  40. It’s really really hard to pick just one! I love You’re just my type”. Toucan do it in second place.

  41. These are so clever!! I love all the birthday sets, but if I had to choose one, I think it would have to be the TACO set!

  42. My favorite is Year Seven. I can add it to many different birthday scenes.

    I love this one though! It reminds me of that Pixar short. So adorable

  43. Year four in the anniversary series is my favorite of those but Critter Concert, Oh Gnome, Really High Five are the birthday sets I really like and use more than any others.

  44. Year thirteen is actually my favourite!
    Being Chinese (Cantonese) and a lover of Yum-Cha, this set has totally won my heart.

  45. My favorite is Year Twelve — “Aparrotly it’s your birthday”! I’ve used that one so many times! 😀

  46. Year 10, 12 & 4 birthday years are my favorites! The hippo and bird, the parrot and the cactus 🥰 I use those a bunch in my card creations!

  47. I really like the Party Pig. I love this dim sum set too, and all the clever ways the design team made steamer baskets.

  48. I love them all, but unfortunately not all puns are easy to understand for German speaking recipients. So it is year two and year eleven if I have to choose…but of course I have the others too.

  49. All the previous years’ have been cute but I love this latest one – I’m Chinese ethnically, I love dumplings and yum cha so there is no competition!

  50. Love all the years but Year 2 (turtle) gets frequent use b/c of sending belated cards and Year 5 is probably my favorite pun (otterly). Love this set and will be using it!

  51. Of course, like everyone else, it’s so hard to choose just one, but I really do love Year 4, Hippo Birdie to You.

  52. Love the cute new Year 13 set!

    Which Birthday set is my favorite? That’s a tough question! They are all so cute and fun! But I think Year 12 is still my favorite — hard to beat that one for humor and cuteness.

  53. I love these sets. One of my favorites is the hippo birdie, year four. This new set will be perfect for my daughter’s birthday card.

    1. I love the “cerealsy awesome “ set. It is so fun. But really I like them all as they are fun to match with recipients personality.

  54. Happy 13th Birthday! I love the Year 13 set! It is so cute, and the card samples are amazing! I really love the Hippo Bird-day to You set!

  55. Lawn Fawn makes so many cute and fun Birthday stamp and due sets it’s really hard to choose a favorite. I do think the Dim sum set would be fun to create with.

  56. Year 7 the piñata is my favorite!! But love and use them all! They are cute sets that just work great for all birthdays.

  57. Year 4 Hippo Birdies is my all time favorite. I think it might be the first LF set I purchased – Love it

  58. LOVE these amazing cards!!! Wow, you all went all out! I love all of them, but the taco is still a stand out fave for me!!

  59. I love the “cerealsy awesome” set. But really I like them all as you can match the set to the recipient’s personality.

  60. This birthday set cracks me up! I’m slowly but surely building up my collection of Lawn Fawn birthday sets. Because of the “pun-y” sentiment, which my 10-year-old grandson loved, I’d have to pick last year’s parrot set as a favorite.

  61. Year 10. I like all of the LF birthday sets but I got to buy this one at Lawn Fawn when I went to to retreat right before COVID lockdown went into effect.

  62. How can I pick a favorite from so much cute goodness? The elephant stamp sets are super adorable and elephants are popular at our house.
