peaceful alpaca (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Lawn Fawn inspiration week is winding down, with a close look at the new Small Stitched Envelope die.

I wanted to create a card that would hide the envelope in plain sight:

It's a card and gift all in one! I created a whole scene on the card base as well as on the envelope front, and had them line up seamlessly (if parts don't look seamless in the photo, it's just the angle!)

I placed the Winter Alpaca onto the envelope, adhering him only to the top of the envelope. When the string is untied, it reveals the gift card inside:

Ta da! (Sidebar: I found that Starbucks card from last year. woo hoo! Free fancy coffee for me this week!)

Cheery Christmas (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hey there! Lawn Fawn inspiration week continues! Today, we're showing off the crittery holiday set, Cheery Christmas.

I went for a punch of color with a deep red background, cut using the Snowy Backdrop die.

The little stacked animals are the cutest!

As I often do, I used a black copic-friendly pen to draw in all of the intersecting lines so that the animal totem pole would look as seamsless as possible.

I hope you like it! There's more to see on the LF blog this morning - click!

Just ME digi stamps - halloween store

Hi there!

I created a few new designs for the Etsy digital stamp shop, just in time for Halloween crafting. Because, by the beginning of October, everyone switches over to Christmas crafting, right? HA.

Here's a little taste of what you can do with the new images:

The carved-out pumpkin image is home to a cute little witch and her spidery friend. I printed it twice so that I could fussy-cut and pop up the pumpkin outline.

I think this is just the cutest. And so big! That's the beauty of working with digi stamps, you can keep the image this large, to cover the entire card-front, or shrink it down if you'd like to use it on tags or mini treat boxes.

One of my favorite images has to be this little bat! I paired him with the spider and a little heart - the softer side of Halloween!

I also printed this image 2 times - so that I could glue the bat's body down but curl his wings a bit. He looks like he's flying!

I hope you check out the shop - thanks for your continued support of my little Etsy shop. The more you spread the word, the more I am encouraged to keep offering digi stamps to you!

It's a plaid Christmas (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there! Lawn Fawn's September inspiration week is in full swing! Today, we're showing off the Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper collection.

I came up with this quirky little number:

I rounded up alllll of the reindeer (from Toboggan Together and Cheery Christmas) and had them peek out of little framed squares.

Since the plaid is so busy, I keep the colors to a tight red, kraft, and green scheme. The square backs were colored in green to give the reindeer some pop, although I think I could have found a better matching green!

String of Lights (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there! The Lawn Fawn design team is showing off new dies today - String of Lights, and Narwhal and Friends.

I have always wanted to make personalized photo tags, and the light bulb dies worked perfectly for this idea:

I used the largest Christmas light die to create tags for gifts. I found and re-sized some pictures of my kids, turned them black and white and printed them right at home before cutting them out with the dies.

The Christmas lights look so great with a thick layer of gloss!

I hope you like this idea! It's a quick and easy way to make tiny tags for smaller gifts.

Snow Cool (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there, and welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn's September inspiration week! Today, we're showing off the adorable penguins in Snow Cool.

For this card, I started out by stamping a whole lot of penguins. I colored them all, and couldn't decide which ones to cut. ha. I threw them all onto the card, creating different mini scenes amid the snow banks.

The little couple on the lower right is about to get their date interrupted!

I hope you like it! If you'd like to see more of how the card came together, visit the Lawn Fawn blog this morning. Kelly asked if she could recreate this card for her video this morning - click!

Spinkled With Joy (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there! The Lawn Fawn team is showing off the incredible Sprinkled with Joy set, and the add-on die set that lets you create an opening oven.

My kids declared the interactive oven "the coolest thing ever."

So there.

Do I even need to post my tag photos? ha.

I love giving tins of holiday cookies to all the neighbors. I think they have come to expect it, along with the handmade tag or card that I use to decorate the packaging. This year's gonna wow them even more.

Wait for it...

Ta da!  I'm kind of in love with this oven. The little touches - like the vellum on the oven door, the tree stamped onto the tea towel, and the very glossy oven knobs - make these tags so special!

I hope you like them too, and check out the Lawn Fawn blog this morning for more Sprinkled With Joy inspiration - click!
