Lawn Fawn Video {11.3.22} Kara’s Clever Advent Calendar with Ugly and Bright!

We are looking forward to another great Create with Us Live event TOMORROW! Join the crafting and chatting fun with Jenn and Kelly at 4PM Pacific Time, November 4th. For all the details click HERE!

Kara is back to share another clever design! Today she inspires us with a super fun magnetic advent calendar! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching!

Kara’s design is a gift in a card! To make this fun interactive card she used thin magnetic sheets. She cut out the sweater shapes and the reindeer with the Ugly and Bright coordinating dies.

Kara stamped 25 sweaters with Celebration Countdown numbers embossing them with Lawn Fawn Black Embossing Powder. Then she created a fun “tie-dyed look for the sweaters! She used Kiddie Pool, Rainforest and Sugarplum ink with the ink smooshing technique!

The sweaters coordinate with the Sugarplum, Peacock and Mermaid cardstock she used Simple Stripes Landscape background. She attached the sweaters to the magnetic backing and then secured them to the card with glue dots.

Then Kara used a speech bubble from Open Me for writing out the instructions to use the interactive advent calendar.

This advent calendar is so much fun, Kara! Thank you for sharing another great video tutorial with us!

The sentiment says “tacky” but aren’t Tammy‘s sweaters awesome? She kept the sweater colors traditional while creating a neutral background for them to stand out. She layered Snow Flurries Backdrop over a snowflake covered kraft panel.

Lynnette cleverly layered her sweater-wearing critters on pretty Knit Picky Winter papers! It’s so cute and cozy and perfect for the holidays!

Marine created a brilliant interactive card! The reindeer can’t decide which sweater to wear to the party! But you can help him by spinning the acetate Reveal Wheel circle with two more sweaters from which to choose! In addition, she has freshly washed ugly sweaters hanging on the Little Bundle clothesline. She also included Santa and the missus from Ho-Ho-Holidays!

The greeting from Winter Scripty Sentiments looks so beautiful stamped in a silvery color! Be sure to check out the video below to see how to recreate this clever design!

Grace was also thinking about laundry, so funny! Her bear family is making sure all the Christmas sweaters are ready for holiday fun. Not to mention some unmentionables as well. She used the washing machine from Loads of Fun to make a shaker window. And then she added all the cute bears from Ugly and Bright, Snow Much Fun and Den Sweet Den!

Elena created a frosty scene for her festive bears in sweaters! She used Over the Mountain Borders for the landscape and the sign from Berry Special for the tiny greeting! I love how she illustrated the happy thoughts of these adorable critters!

Melissa created a fun Platform Pop-Up with a snowy landscape for the Ugly and Bright critters! She used the Platform Pop-Up Hillside Wrap Around and the Hillside Inserts cut from Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock. Then she added trees from Forest Backdrop and Deck the Car.

Santa and his reindeer look so adorable while checking over the nice list! Megan created the shaker using How You Bean and Snow Globe Scenes before filling it with shiny stars! The sentiment is so much fun in Henry’s ABCs!

Kara‘s stylish critters are sporting some fabulous ugly sweaters! They are sending happy messages while looking absolutely adorable!

Elise‘s gathering of cozy, sweater-wearing critters is so much fun! The Knit Picky Winter paper adds subtle pattern while the hot-foiled scripty greeting brings the sparkle and shine!

Latisha‘s sweaters are so charming in those bright colors! Her adorable reindeer has plenty of options to get him through ugly sweater season!

Caly‘s clean and simple design takes advantage of the fun knit pattern in the Knit Picky Winter paper. Her coloring gives these cuties so much personality!

Elena‘s gorgeous Giant Happy Fall card reminds us that these tacky sweaters are great for other seasons too!

I love how Mindy framed the Ugly and Bright critters in a Forest Backdrop! The Christmas Garland over the top looks so festive!

And we round out our inspiration with another critter who is washing festive, ugly sweaters! It looks like he’s having “loads of fun” while he finishes this basket full of holiday laundry! Audrey‘s clever card is truly so much fun!

Lawn Fawn Video {10.2.22} Samantha’s Brilliant Flippy Flappy Holiday Card

Samantha joins us again today with another cute and clever card design! This time she created a brilliant Flippy Flappy interactive card with the adorable Ugly and Bright critters! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching!

Samantha’s clever design uses Flippy Flappy to help the cute fox put on a festive sweater! She used Knit Picky Winter paper for the background adding snowy white splatters.

She positioned the fox above the Flippy Flappy mechanism, so that pulling the tab causes the sweater to flip up to cover the critter. Be sure to check out the Intro to Flippy Flappy video for the easy step-by-step instructions.

This card is so much fun, Samantha! Thank you for inspiring us today!
