Jenn’s Rainbow Ocean Critters!

Our Fawnie friend and awesome instructor, Jenn Shurkus, has been busy planning and prepping classes for this Fall using our new Fall/Winter release! She took a little break to join us today to share her adorable rainbow card featuring lots of cute ocean critters!

Jenn combined ocean critters from So Jelly, You Are Sublime, Critters in the Sea, Mermaid for You, Duh-nuh and Octopi My Heart in this adorable grouping!

Jenn used Snowy Backdrop to create the look of water with bubbles! Such a fun and clever addition and a great way to get more out of your die collection! The sentiment is from our Simply Sentiments set!

I just love the rainbow colors of all of these ocean critter cuties!

Thank you so much for inspiring us today with your brilliant card, Jenn! Be sure to check out Jenn’s class schedule to register for her upcoming classes!

Lawn Fawn + Xyron Week – Day 4

We are so excited to be collaborating with our friends at Xyron this week! Their products include the multi-use Creative Station, Sticker Makers and awesome scrapbook and craft adhesives! Our Design Team has some fabulous projects to share this week. Please check out the Xyron Facebook page to see projects by their talented Design Team!

Today we have a video tutorial by our newest collaborator, Mindy! She shows how she used alcohol ink and Yupo paper to make gorgeous ocean backgrounds! Then she created two fabulous window cards using Porthole Frames and lots of fun ocean themed sets! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch it at our YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching!

The alcohol ink backgrounds look amazing through the window created with Porthole Frames! I love the shiny gold from heat embossing the frames with our Gold Embossing Powder!

Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop adds lots of great texture to the Paper Bag cardstock panel!

Mindy used the Xyron Create a Sticker tool to add adhesive to the entire back of the window panel so the adhesive won’t be visible through the acetate! Such a handy product! Then she used the small Sticker Maker to make it easy to attach the cute sea critters from You Are Sublime, So Jelly and Duh-nuh!

It’s easy to make 2 amazing cards with the same elements! Mindy made one portrait and one landscape and added different sentiments from Simply Sentiments!

Chari‘s You Are Sublime yellow submarine shaker card is just so much colorful fun! I love the sparkle of the Stitched Rectangle Frame die cut from glittery paper! Really Rainbow paper adds the happy color to the background! She used Xyron’s Mega Runner to attach the color layer to the card base!

Chari used the Xyron Tape Runner to build up rainbow layers of cardstock frames to create height for the shaker! That’s such a cool detail! She filled her shaker window with Dress My Craft Crystal Ice Cubes. She finished off this cute card design with seaweed made from Large Wreath dies and a fun greeting from Chit Chat!

Nicole‘s sweet Plane and Simple card design includes a fun Outside In Stitched Cloud Stackables window! I love the stamped background and the peek at the Really Rainbow paper inside the window! She attached all the elements using the Tape Runner by Xyron!

Be sure to join us all week for more of our hop with Xyron! And don’t forget to visit the Xyron Facebook page to see their awesome projects! They are so fun and creative!

Lea created this mountain-themed mood-board when she started planning Layton’s nursery, it has a special place in her heart.

Our Fawnie friend, Lynette, has created a special card just for today’s blog hop! She was inspired by the cute woodland animal stuffies and the beautiful color palette to make a sweet card with an encouraging message and a pocket to hold a gift card!

Lynette’s sunny “thinking of you” card combines Woodland Critter Huggers and Little Flowers dies along with Pumpkin Spice and Simply Sentiments stamps!

The Stitched Gift Card Pocket holds a thoughtful gift inside!

Now on to the blog hop info – here is a link list with all of the stops along the hop! Please be sure to leave some love for the thoughtfulness & generosity that these companies, stores & designers have shown for this Card Drive & Fundraising effort.
