We Wish You a Very Fawny Holiday Week 2020 {Day 4}

Hello everyone! Welcome to our special Fawny Holiday Week! This week is all about getting ideas for the upcoming Holidays! We have fun ideas and inspiration along with videos and daily giveaways! (Make sure to comment for a chance to win a stamp set and coordinating dies of your choice and a Let It Shine 6×6 pad!)

We will be featuring Lawn Fawn Holiday products this week, both old and new! Woohoo! We will share holiday projects by our Design Teams and some special guest designers! Our team members (Fawnies) from Lawn Fawn Headquarters will also be joining us for extra inspiration! I can’t wait to show you all of their gorgeous projects!

For Day 4, Marine created a beautiful fairy tale winter wonderland featuring Build-A-Castle! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch it at our YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching!

Marine created a fun fairy tale inspired card using the Shutter Card as the base! She designed a sweet Christmas Dreams scene with the little bear family all cozy inside their den.

But if they venture outside, there is a winter wonderland, complete with a frosty castle! The Tiny Fairy Tale characters are joined by Winter Dragon, Little Dragon and fairies from A Little Sparkle! I love that Marine found a clever way to use the Shutter Card as the base of her design!

Along with Build-A-Castle, Marine used Tree Before ‘n Afters, All the Clouds and Snowflake Border!

Guest Designer Mayra takes us inside the workshop where all the Holiday Helpers are busy making toys for all the kids on Santa’s nice list! The centerpiece of the workshop is the crackling fire in the Shadow Box Card Fireplace Add-On and of course there are decorated Christmas trees too! In addition to the toys in Holiday Helpers, Mayra borrowed “toys” from Village Heroes (fire truck) and Tiny Fairy Tale for the princess and knight!

The second card in Mayra‘s set gives us a peek inside the “refueling station” for the elves and reindeer! The Sweet Smiles gumball machines dispense marshmallows, peppermint candy and carrots! I love how Mayra decorated the gumball machines and added a Hats Off to You hat to each one!

In addition to the cards, Mayra also created totally adorable shaker gift tags using the gumball machines!

Franci‘s charming Shadow Box Card features cute Den Sweet Den polar bears! To add interest to this 3D scene, she added a Snowfall Backdrop to the back of the box. Franci added holiday fun with gifts and a Santa hat from Yeti or Not!

Renata, one of our LFHQ Fawnies, crafted the cutest, most colorful gingerbread shaker card! To create the frame, she masked off strips and blended on Distress ink in happy colors! Next, she used Reverse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Window to cut the shaker frame.

To finish the shaker, Renata attached cute a Gingerbread Friends cutie to a panel of cream Let It Shine paper. She filled the shaker window with Studio Katia rainbow wheels and pastel confetti, candy canes from Build-A-House Gingerbread Add-On and Chunky Glitter! (Tip: to keep the glitter from sticking to an acetate shaker window, use lots of anti-static powder inside the shaker!)

Old and new look adorable together on Samantha‘s sweet Scalloped Treat Box! She used the Winter House Add-On to add the holiday fun! The roof, trees and wreath are cut from the pretty green dotted Let It Shine paper! The new Den Sweet Den bears look right at home!

Our mermaids and their friends from Ocean Shell-fie and You are Sublime are celebrating Christmas in glittery underwater style! Jenn found lots of cute holiday accessories in Baaah Humbug, Holiday Party Animal and Holiday Helpers! To create the greeting she combined Winter Big Scripty Words with a sentiment from Holiday Helpers. The fun Rainforest frame is a Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait that Jenn cut the inner grid out of; so clever!

Those adorable bears are making another appearance today on Elise‘s beautiful set of cards! I love how she layered Scripty Merry, cut from Metallic Gold cardstock, over “greenery” from Large Wreath! To finish the greeting she white embossed sentiments from Offset Sayings: Christmas.

I hope you have enjoyed this fun look at some of our Holiday and Winter sets. Tomorrow we have another fun Fawny Holiday celebration but for now, it’s giveaway time! Leave us a comment telling us what made you smile today by November 21st at 2:00PM ET, and we will randomly pick one winner for a stamp set with coordinating dies of their choice and a Let It Shine 6×6 Petite Paper pad!
