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.

1 Stamp, 3 Ways with Tammy {8.21.20} Ocean Shell-fie

Happy Friday fawny friends! It’s time for another 1 Stamp, 3 Ways with Tammy! This month Tammy chose Ocean Shell-fie and created three amazing card designs to inspire you! She included a special photo tutorial to make your own pirate ship! Aargh!

Hi friends, Tammy here with a fun, underwater- themed 1 Stamp, 3 Ways feature! This month, we are featuring Ocean Shell-fie. I absolutely love creating ocean themed and underwater cards, so I really had fun creating with these ocean cuties!



Pirate Ship Card

Ahoy Mateys!! I just love this treasure-seeking octopus-pirate! It looks like he found the treasure, but left the little crab behind, lol!

My first card is A6 size, measuring 4 ½ X 6 ¼”. It features a custom Pirate Ship that I will show you how to create using Lawn fawn dies.

To begin, I cut a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock to 4 ½ X 6 ¼”. Using the Cloudy Stencil I very lightly inked the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. Next, I cut the sandy hill using the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. And then, I ink blended it with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. Using the Stitched Simple Wavy Borders, I cut three waves that were lightly with Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers. I attached the sandy hill, then layered the wave borders. To pop up the front wave I used foam tape.

Using Jet Black ink I stamped the following images:
Ocean Shell-fie/ Coordinating Dies
Ahoy, Matey/ Coordinating Dies
Booyah (pirate hat and eye patch)/ Coordinating Dies
Life is Good (crab)/ Coordinating Dies
Super Star (telescope)/ Coordinating Dies
Then I colored them with Copic markers, and die cut using the coordinating dies.

Creating the Pirate Ship

To begin, I cut an oval using the second to largest oval in the Large Stitched Oval Stackables set.

Next, I cut about 1/3 off of the oval from the top to create a straight edge. Using the second smallest circle from the Large Stitched Circle Stackables, place it on the edge and run it through your die cut machine, to create the curves on the Pirate Ship. Repeat on the other side.

To add detail to the ship, cut (3) ½” strips from the Woodgrain Cardstock – Neutrals. I added color to the strips with Vintage Photo Distress ink, to create the wood planks.

Starting from the top, attach the inked strips to the oval base. And then trim off the excess, following along the curves of the ship (as shown in pic). Next, using Ground Coffee Cardstock, cut 3 circles using the smallest die from the Stitched Circle Frames. Then, I cut 3 circles using the smallest die from the Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables from Shimmer Cardstock – Pastel. I layered the circles and attached to the ship.

Next, cut a thin strip of Ground Coffee cardstock, approximately 5” in length. To create the sails, I cut two rectangles using the red patterned paper from the Really Rainbow Petite Paper Pack. To make the sails, I used the rectangle dies noted in the photo above. Using the second to smallest circle from the Large Stitched Circle Stackables, I created the curves on the sails.

I assembled the mast and sails and then attached them to complete the ship.

And now that the Pirate Ship is complete, we can finish up our card. I tucked the ship underneath the wave at an angle using foam tape. Next, I attached all the colored images to my card, using foam tape on some for dimension. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Ahoy, Matey along the bottom of my card in Black Licorice Ink.

Slimline Card

To create this fun slimline card, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using the Large Slimline with Sliders. I inked the background with Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks. To add some interest, I splashed a little water and thinned down  Mermaid Lagoon onto the inked background. To create the sand, I inked the Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. Then I attached it to the bottom of my inked background.

Next, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from the following sets:
Ocean Shell-fie/ Coordinating Dies
You are Sublime ( lobster, coral)/ Coordinating Dies
Rub-a-Dub-Dub/ Coordinating Dies
Crazy Antics (bath mat)/ Coordinating Dies
Mermaid For You (rock)/ Coordinating Dies
Offset Sayings: Birthday (sentiment)

All of the stamped images were attached to the card, I used foam tape on some of them for dimension. I added Stickles Star Dust on the bubbles for a little sparkle. Next, I stamped the sentiment “make a” from Offset Sayings: Birthday in Black Licorice ink. To finish the greeting, I created the large “SPLASH” sentiment with Oliver’s Stitched ABCs die cut from Shimmer cardstock. I lightly inked the bottom of the letters with Blueprint Sketch ink before attaching them to the top center of my card. And then I attached the card front to a 3 ½ X 8 ½” white card base to complete my card.

Sea-son’s Greetings Card

For this A2 sized card I cut a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock, and created the waves using the Ocean Waves Stencil. Starting at the bottom, I blended Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks. I then splashed some water onto the background to create water droplets. Next, I cut a frame with the Foursquare Backdrop: Landscape, snipping away the grid to create an open frame to attach to my background. (Note: you could use a Stitched Rectangle Frame for this step.) To create the sand, I used the Stitched Simple Wavy Borders. I inked it with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo before attaching it to the bottom of my background popped up with foam tape.

Here’s a list of the images that I stamped, color with Copic markers and die cut for this card:
Ocean Shell-fie/ Coordinating Dies
Christmas Fishes/ Coordinating Dies
Yeti or Not (hat)/ Coordinating Dies
Mermaid For You (rock)/ Coordinating Dies
You are Sublime ( seaweed, coral)/ Coordinating Dies

I arranged all the stamped images onto my card, using foam tape on some for dimension. Next I stamped the sentiment from, Christmas Fishes, along the bottom in Black Licorice Ink. And finally I added some Clear Water Droplets before attaching my card front to an A2 card base to complete my card.
