Lawn Fawn Video {4.27.22} Samantha’s Rainbow Year Eleven Birthday Card

Samantha joins us today with another fantastic card design and video tutorial! She added a stenciled background to take her Year Eleven card out of this world! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch at out YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching!

Samantha created a really cool background for the rainbow-colored planets from Year Eleven and Out of This World. She ink-blended Distress Oxide colors first, then she used a Puffy Cloud Border as a stencil to add shading with Black Soot ink! This result could also be achieved using our Cloudy Stencil sets.

Once the inky background was dry, Samantha used Starry Sky Stencil with Stencil Paste in white to add another layer of fun! After the stencil paste was dry, she arranged the watercolor rainbow planets and party hats!

Your card is so adorable, Samantha! Thank you so much for inspirating us today!

Have an amazing day!

Elena‘s sweet Year Eleven design sends belated birthday greetings with the help of Out of This World! I love how embraced the white space around the cool galaxy background!

Aparrotly, Year Twelve is a perfect companion with Ahoy Matey! Tammy created a Platform Pop-Up to look like a pirate ship for her super creative birthday card!

Marine took the sting out of sending belated wishes with this amazing Magic Iris design! All the cheerful color and great added details like the Just Stitching Double Circles framing the iris make this a truly special birthday card!

Latisha‘s Year Twelve card is so fun with its clean and simple grid design! I love how she matched the ink and cardstock colors!

Kara used shiny silver details to make her galaxy inspired cards! She silver-embossed the cute Year Twelve and Super Star images, then she added holographic cardstock to frame the cool scenes!

Mindy‘s tropical scene features Stitched Wave Borders, Hammock and Trees and those cute parrots from Year Twelve! I love her ink-blending, it gives this card so much gorgeous color!

Elise covered a full card panel with an amazing galaxy, then she added the fun images and punny sentiment from Year Eleven! She also included cute birthday images from Scootin’ By!

Lynnette used Magic Iris Tropical Leaves Add-On with a brightly colored parrot! Instead of using the sentiment from Year Twelve she used a greeting from Toucan Do It!

I love how Audrey painted a watercolor galaxy over just a portion of the card panel. It defines the cute scene in a fun, clean and simple way! She paired Year Eleven with balloons from Bicycle Built for You and stars from Hearts and Stars Skinny Tag!

Grace‘s birthday card is so creative and fun! She used the Outside In Stitched Strawberry to make an amazing “pineapple house” for the Year Twelve parrots! She added pineapple texture with Fancy Lattice Backdrop! This tropical scene is so much fun built on a Platform Pop-Up with fun additions from Toucan Do It, On the Beach and S’more the Merrier!

I love how Mindy made the sentiment the star of this card! Her galaxy background is so fantastic, and it lets the brightly colored Year Eleven planets pop as they frame the greeting!

Elise used Henry’s ABCs to add the punny part of the Year Twelve birthday sentiment! Then she used it as a place for the birthday images to land! In addition to the parrot, Elise used the cake from Elphie Selfie along with balloons and gifts from Scootin’ By!

Caly‘s amazing card shows how Year Eleven and Out of This World play together so well! Her card also features a unique watercolor galaxy!

Lawn Fawn Video {3.15.22} Kara’s Galaxy Card Set

It’s time for another cardmaking technique video by Kara! Today she shows us how to make 5 amazing cards from one watercolor galaxy! You can watch the video below of click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching, I hope it inspired you!

Kara created one large, galaxy universe on a sheet of watercolor paper. Then she divvied it up with very little waste to make this fantastic set of cards!

Our new set, Year Eleven, is the star of this mini slimline card! Kara also let the watercolor galaxy shine with just a bit of holographic cardstock to frame it! So simple and beautiful!

Another card featuring Year Eleven uses just a thin strip of the watercolor galaxy!

For this design, Kara made a frame for the smaller galaxy panel. Then she included the Super Star mouse and telescope! She even used up the last of the watercolor galaxy to cut out Henry’s ABCs to spell out planet!

This design features a combination of a star from Super Star and the bunny from Upon a Star. She silver-embossed the encouraging sentiment, also from Super Star.

For the last card, Kara used a galaxy panel as a backdrop for the cute images and sentiment from Beam Me Up! The silver-embossed greeting also includes Offset Sayings: Birthday.

Thank you for sharing your creativity with us today, Kara! I love these cards so much!
