Lynnette used a 12 x 12 sheet of Spiffy Specklesripe banana” paper as the backdrop for her beautiful scrapbook layout! She used patterns from Really Rainbow Scallops and Spring Fling to create a photo frame and then filled the page flowers (Stitched Flower Frame, Outside In Stitched Flower, Flower Power) and Layered Butterflies!

Yainea‘s Out of This World birthday card is amazing! The Magic Picture Changer scene is so fun with the little space critters popping up! She layered some Spiffy Speckles papers with her ink blending panel and used the stitched Fancy Wavy Banner for the sentiment!

Oh how sweet is Chari‘s beautiful Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters design?! She started with a Rainy Backdrop, added a Really Rainbow Scallops panel and put the cute rainbow inside a Stitched Scalloped Circle Frame! I love how Pixie Dust Sparkle looks on the layered Fancy Wavy Banner!

Our Spiffy Specklespesto” paper is the perfect background for Melissa‘s grassy photos! I love how she used the black glitter panel from the Autumn Sparkle pack for a bit of contrast!

The airplane banner from Simply Celebrate Spring is a perfect fit with the Wavy Sayings on Elena‘s clever card! She used Stitched Cloud Backdrop and Little Town Border to fill out this happy scene!

I love Kay‘s adorable Oh Gnome! scene in a circle! The stitched Fancy Wavy Banner coordinates with the Stitched Circle and Stitched Tree Borders to add sweet detail!

Blueberry smoothie Spiffy Speckles pairs beautifully with the new glittery green in our Spring Sparkle cardstock pack on Melissa‘s backyard themed layout!

Megan added a two-tone layered Fancy Wavy Banner for the Wavy Sayings sentiment on her adorable interactive Spring-themed card!

I love how Latisha used the Simply Celebrate Spring airplane banner to stamp this fun background! The Wavy Sayings sentiments combine to send a cheery thank you!

Audrey added a Simple Wavy Banner to her super sweet Butterfly Kisses card! I love how she tucked the sentiment up in the clouds on that beautifully inked sky!

Megan used the Fancy Wavy Banner with a frame to add an Easter greeting to her amazing Shadow Box Card featuring Chirpy Chirp Chirp!

Elise gave her cute Butterfly Kisses mini scene in an Outside In Stitched Circle window a pretty Fancy Wavy Banner for the sweet sentiment!

  1. Stacking die cut sentiments or heat emboss stamped sentiments…it depends on the card. Also, love the fancy wavy banners…they’ll be useful for so many types of cards. 🙂

  2. speech bubble from happy village is my fav to add little sentiments. otherwise banners are amazing! These banners will add os much to the card

  3. Loving the wavy banners! I love using the banners to add sentiments, gives it such a great look! I also enjoy stamping the sentiments straight on the card!

  4. Depends on the card…but considering what I use most it would be the fancy banner that is popped up a littel…it adds a lot of fun to nearly any card.

  5. I usually just stamp the saying right on the card. However, I have the banners in my basket now! Thanks for the fabulous samples from the design team!

  6. I like a precursor sentiment to start the show and the remaining sentiment inside the card. I usually just stamp but have embossed the card front sentiment or stamp a separate piece and added it to the front. The inside is usually stamped or sometimes I print them on my printer and cut them out with die cuts.

  7. Just used the ‘Simple Wavy Banner’ dies & stamps on a B Day card! I love the look. Now I know I need the fancy banner dies and stamps. How did Elena make the black outline on her simple wavy banner?

  8. Stamping sentiments on my cards is the easiest for me…all the more reason to get more cool products from Lawn Fawn! Love the wavy border – looks great with the new patterned papers!

  9. I usually stamp a sentiment in color on white cardstock and mount it on a coordinating color cardstock.. I am hoping to branch out into banners and embossing but haven’t made that investment yet.

  10. My most frequent way of adding sentiments is a popped up banner over a messed up stamping. *facepalm* But I think my favorite is metallic embossing.

  11. embossing the sentiment is my favorite way to add a sentiment. it looks more polished and i like the way it ads texture to the card by providing dimension and a raised feel.

  12. My favorite way of adding a sentiment to a card is either stamping directly on the card or by stamping it onto a banner and putting that onto the card.

  13. I typically stamp my Sentiment on s banner and pop it up on foam tape. Sometimes I also add a die cut word.

  14. I’m not really picky about how I add my sentiments- it really depends on the layout. Although, I have really been loving the fancy banner dies, I’ve used them quite a bit since only having them for a few weeks.

  15. I love a good sentiment strip… Plus I love when you can stamp a second complimentary sentiment inside the card.

  16. I tend to add sentiments with a strip and banner the ends. Love your new curvy sentiments! They add such a nice look to the front of the card.

  17. Really love the gorgeous projects- especially that first layout and the rainbow umbrella card! Sweet!!!
    My favorite way to add a sentiment to a card is to add it directly onto the main panel in a corner or by using a label die or punch. 🙂

  18. Love these projects. I think the umbrella card that Chari Moss made is my favorite. My favorite way to add sentiments is to heat emboss them, especially black ink and clear embossing power. I think it gives is a clear crisp look.

  19. I like using stamp sets to put sentiments on my cards. I also write notes on the back or inside to personalize them a little more. Your examples are very cute.

  20. To add a sentiment to a card, I love to use either tag dies, flag dies or other dies meant for this. Love the projects

  21. I love to leave comments in the upper corners of the cards on the front as well as one on the inside corners.
    I send more than a card per day, so aligning the sentiment is not important to me! Thank you, Lawn Fawn staff and designers, for the inspiration you provide us with.

  22. I like embossing my sentiments, but after a recent make and take I love the 3-D banner! I can’t wait to get that set.

  23. I like to use a word die, often from metallic or glitter paper, with a smaller sentiment on a strip or banner beneath it.

  24. I love all today’s projects!!! Thanks for sharing. My latest passion for placing sentiments is either on the clouds or on a banner.

  25. It depends on the card and the layout of the card. sometimes I stamp directly on the card and
    other times I put the sentiment in layered circles or just on a strip. Wavy banners would be great.

  26. What darling cards and pop p shadow boxes!!
    My favorite way to add a sentiment depends on the card and who it is to. I like to heat emboss, I always add a sentiment inside my cards and I like to add banners.

  27. My favorite way to add sentiments are banners or ‘labels.’ I like ti use the smallest of nesting dies for a label.

  28. The great ideas just keep on coming. I love the speckled,papers! I would have to say adding a sentiment to a banner would be my favourite way to add a sentiment to a card.

  29. Stamping it on paper, using interesting dies, then pop dot for stand out effect. LOVE, LOVE,LOVE these samples and ideas.

  30. When it comes to sentiments, I use a little bit of everything. I love stamping the sentiment on a banner or directly on to the card. I recently purchased my first stamp set of LF ABCs, now I’m addicted to making my own sentiments!

  31. Those cards are so beautiful! I really like that you featured scrapbook pages too! My favorite way to put sentiments on cards is by putting them on some sort of die cut and popping them up. 🙂

  32. I love to add sentiments by putting them on little cardstock strips or by heat embossing them on a card. These wavy banners are awesome.

  33. I love that the curves match between sentiments and dies and past products as well! Lawn Fawn always does an excellent job of coordinating their products! There are so many ways to add a sentiment, if I’m in a hurry a die cut is quicker but I do love heat embossing and of course my Misti has saved me a lot of paper by getting the sentiments straight!

  34. Hmmmmmm. I think I like to use strips or banners for sentiments. That way if I mess up I don’t ruin the whole card!! Thanks so much. Love all the fabulous inspiration. Take care ❤️

  35. I have some favorite ways to add a sentiment: simply stamp it on the front of a card, embossing it or cut the sentiment with a die and and popping it up.

  36. I love adding sentiments on banners so these awesome Wavy sentiments and banner dies would be perfect!! (wink, wink)

  37. I like to stamp my sentiments, and if I have the time, heat emboss. Usually I’m making 30+ cards at once, so most of the time I skip the embossing and head straight for the dye based ink to save time!

  38. I usually stamp the sentiment, then I find a shaped die and cut it out. Next I use foam tape to pop it up, if on the outside of the card.

  39. I recently got a stamp platform and love how I can stamp the sentiment right on the card in the right place and straight now lol. That is usually how I do it.

  40. I like to add a sentiment stamped directly on my card or embossed on a banner and popped up with foam tape.

  41. I usually stamp the sentiment directly on card. When I feel ambitious, I embossed it on white strip. I’m just starting to make cards.

  42. I love using stacked die cut sentiments on the front of my cards and simple stamped sentiments on the inside.

  43. I like to stamp and emboss the sentiment then pop it up with foam strops. I love embossing powders. I really hope you add some more colours of embossing powder to your product line. I own all the ones that currently have. Thanks for the chance to win. Good luck everyone.

  44. I love adding sentiments by using banners so these simple and fancy banner dies are perfect! Team member samples are adorable… love ’em!

  45. I love adding sentiments on banners or strips of card stock with foam tape. I also love the look of heat embossing.It makes those sentiments pop and look professional. Loving all the inspiration.

  46. Love the new paper and the wavy banner sentiment strips! I have a hard time with adding sentiments – I forget to plan for them and they’re kind of an afterthought for me. I usually stamp or emboss sentiments on the inside of the card. Thank you for the chance to win!

  47. My favorite way is to add a heat embossed sentiment on a sentiment strip and pop it up with foam. I’d love to have these wavy banners to dress it up a bit.

  48. I love the Spiffy Speckles paper!! And, these wavy banners are incredible. It depends on what I am making, which dictates my choice of how I do the sentiment. But I most often put the sentiment in a frame or on a banner. I think it helps highlight the sentiment.

  49. Most of the time, I use stamped sentiments on banners, strips, or tags, often layered, embellished, and/or popped. These wavy banners are terrific.

  50. I love stamping on the cards I create at the corners, but I also think stamping on envelopes adds extra love!
    Thank you to the Lawn Fawn design team members and staff for all that you do!

  51. I like to stamp it on the card and also on banners or strips of card stock. 🤔
    I can’t pick just one way.
    Thanks for sharing…

  52. Love those speckled papers!
    I often add a sentiment on a strip of paper, and these banner dies are awesome!

  53. Love the wavy greetings and coordinating dies! Once again all your samples are amazing. The clean lines of the Hello card are great.

  54. I’m a fan of the bannertastic banners, but I also like the scripty style of different words stacked in a few layers. And a simple stamped sentiment. Ooo, it’s hard to choose!

  55. I have the Fancy Wavy Banner set and I just live all of the possible ways of using it. I think I’ll get lots of use out of these!

  56. I can only dream of winning all this fine stuff! I like attaching my sentiments with any type of banner…since I have fishtail banners I use them the most.

  57. I like to add my sentiment with a banner instead of directly on the card. This way if I make a mistake I can do it again.

  58. I like stacked die cuts if I’m not mass producing. I also like a die cut large sentiment with a small phrase stamped on the card. Beautiful projects. I already have and have used the Spiffy Speckles paper. It’s wonderful.

  59. I either like to stamp directly on the background or foreground or else use some sort of banner. Lots of cute ideas today and fun colors!

  60. What cute cards! I usually don’t put any sentiment on a card until I am ready to use it. That way I have cards for any occasion. I will add the sentiments on banners and tags and such for the occasion.

  61. I love sticker sentiments the most (because they’re ready to go), but stamped and die-cut ones are lovely, too!

  62. Love all the inspiration, as always! I very often add a sentiment just by stamping it directly on the card, but every now and again I add banners/strips with sentiments, or add sentiment on a strip of vellum. I love die-cut sentiments also, and usually stack a few layers together, for some additional dimension and interest

  63. Stamped either directly on the card front or on banners! I love the wavy version showcased here (of course, I love all things LF *grin*)

  64. I like a mix of stamps and die cuts and computer printouts — whatever it takes to get just what I need!

  65. Wow! What a great selection of inspiration! I usually stamp the sentiment on plain colored cardstock, and most of the time I use dimensional adhesive to give it some height from the card design. Thanks for the chance to win!

  66. I usually write my sentiment inside the card.
    It’s in my terrible handwriting but I think that
    is more personalized than using a
    syrupy saying. I may put a little banner
    on the outside with HB or sympathy.
    Great collection of projects today.

  67. I love adding small banners or small sentiment strips to my cards. I also love to add the sentiments in clouds when they’re there or in sand if it’s an underwater card. They’re all so fun!

  68. I love to stamp sentiments on my card. And I ❤️❤️❤️ the wavy banners! Great cards and scrapbook layouts today!

  69. I love adding sentiments with banners! Somethimes I stamp directly on the card, always depends on the overall loook and if the card needs dimension or should be flat

    Love the papers! I already have the petite spring fling paper, but I did’t have time to use it yet. But the spiffy speckles looks so gorgeous too! ♥

  70. Sometimes I stamp directly on the card or I use a pop-up. I will use a coordinating paper and cut/punch out and pop that sucker up.

  71. I like heat embossed sentiments the most! But a crisp, clear black sentiment comes in at a close second for me!

  72. I like to add sentiments inside banners or just elevate them off the page/card base with foam. Makes them pop!

  73. So sorry you’ve lost your voice Kelly Marie.
    I love all the DT cards and ideas!
    My favourite way is to use a banner … and as soon as I have these new ones, they’ll be my new favourites … currently I love the ‘everyday banners’

  74. I love these banners! My favourite way to add a sentiment is usually on a banner or heat embossed right onto the card. Thank you for such a fun inspiration week. I am looking forward to some play time this evening after my kids go to bed. 🙂

  75. I Love the banners and these would be a useful addition. Normally, I just like to stamp on the card in an open white space on the card!

  76. Banner to the side, one end trimmed to line up w the edge of my card! I got the stamps and fancy borders, can’t wait to have a chance to try!

  77. I am just loving this new release. I usually make some kind of sentiment strip and add is to the card or occasionally stamp it directly on the card in the center or a corner, but I recently got some of your sentiment banner dies and can’t wait to start using those.

  78. I dont have many stamps….so I either cut them out or print them with my printer….need to add more stamps to my collection

  79. I like to stamp a sentiment on the bottom of my cards usually on a separate piece of cardstock. Feel better and get your voice back.

  80. I love to stamp on strips of vellum and attach to the card with brads! This way, I can create generic cards and stamp a sentiment if I’m in a bind for a card 🙂

  81. I prefer to stamp sentiments on a banner or label die; that way I can stamp several times and choose the best one! I’m too chicken to stamp a sentiment directly onto a finished card 🙂

  82. I love the pesto and blueberry colors of the Spiffy Speckles paper! I usually just simply stamp my sentiments onto my cards or on a strip of paper, but I also like to emboss my sentiments.

  83. Lots of awesome inspiration happening here! My favorite way to add a sentiment to a card is to heat emboss it. Sometimes I just put it directly on the card and other times I layer it up. PS Lawn Fawn embossing powders are fabulous and I look forward to more colors in the future. Wink. Wink.

  84. Beautiful shape to those banners & adorable papers. I need to get sentiments more polished on my cards but currently having fun using embossing on vellum.

  85. I usually stamp sentiments directly on my cards, but I love the idea of stamping on banners. I think it’s time to branch out using your banners and also do heat embossing.

  86. I love all the scrapbook inspiration today!!! I’d love to see more in the future!
    My favorite embellishments to add to cards are heat embossed texture, fun stamp characters, and shaped flowers.

  87. Great projects! In most cases I make a card and then start searching for a fittig sentiment 😀 If possible I stamp it directly on the card or heat emboss on vellum.

  88. Love the speckled papers. I don’t really have a favorite way to add sentiments, it all depends on the design of the card. I think I find using some kind of banner the most, but even that varies.

  89. I love the new spiffy speckles paper!
    I don’t have a lot of stamps, as I still mostly paper piece, so most of my sentiments are designed and cut using my electronic cutter. I have been slowly buying stamps, so I’m hoping to be using them more!

  90. I like using little banners to add sentiments. I think it makes it stand out nicely, also I am afraid of stamping directly on a finished card and accidently ruining it lol.

  91. I love stamping my sentiments in a similar color to the paper. Thanks Lawn Fawn for making so many amazing ink pads!

  92. Banners top my list for adding sentiments, but I am so bad at cutting them–I totally need these dies!! Thank you for a chance to win them!

  93. Love those banners and the paper! I love adding sentiments by stamping them, cutting it out from a tag die, and adding a little ribbon along with some embellishments.

  94. I usually use my Bannerific stamps…but lent the dies to someone and never got them back and sure wish I could find a replacement set! I hate fussy cutting the banners out but love the look! My 2nd choice is to heat emboss a sentiment but I almost always do that on a banner too!

  95. I like to stamp my sentiment and then die cut or use a punch to cut them out so I can pop them up with foam squares.

  96. sad to say …. I am ususally so far behind on my cards – I am just happy to get a sentiment on the card! I don’t have a favorite way!

  97. My favorite way to add a sentiment to a card is to make a banner of some sort and pop it up with foam tape 🙂

  98. I usually put the sentiment on a banner or shape of some type. Occasionally, I will stamp on the card directly. Rarely, I emboss the sentiment. Almost always have a sentiment inside too.

  99. I like to cut sentiment stripes and put the sentiment on that. So these new wavy strips are wonderful! I seem to always think of the sentiment as an after thought so adding to stripes works so well.

  100. Banners and text in the Lawn Fawn products can inspire one to create numerous things to share with others.
    Thank you Lawn Fawn!

  101. I’m crazy about those wavy banners! My favorite way to add sentiments is to heat emboss white on colored cardstock.

  102. Awesome release. I tend to add my stamping on my card and then if I mess up I can add a banner on top to cover up the mistake.

  103. I love stamping a sentiment on a banner to add to my cards. These wavy sentiment banners will be fun to add to cards now.

  104. It really depends on my mood and how much time I have. I do like to heat emboss sentiments quite often.

  107. I didn’t own any banner dies yet, but now that I have these, I can’t believe I ever lived without any!! I use them all the time and I love them so much! They add so much to each card and they are so versatile.

  108. It was so much fun to teach someone to make cards today using the Lawn Fawn stamps. Thanks to the design team and staff we have another person using your products!

  109. My favorite way of adding a sentiment is to simply stamp a tag or narrow strip and adhere it at the bottom of the card!
