Lawn Fawn + Xyron week - wedding cats

Hi there!

Lawn Fawn + Xyron week - wedding cats


Lawn Fawn and Xyron are collaborating this week to bring you fun inspiration using both companies' products.

I've used Xyron's Mega Runner to adhere everything on my card.

The Lawn Fawn supply list is a bit longer.

Lawn Fawn + Xyron week - wedding cats

I dressed up the Meow You Doin'? cats for their wedding. I love that my cousin will open the envelope on his wedding day in July and see this and be all WTF, but there you have it. Wedding cats. I'll distract him with a nice, hefty check. ha.

The wedding accessories come from the set called Bicycle Built for You, and who knew they would work perfectly on the kitties? I love that "furever" fit perfectly into the little flag.

I stamped "wedding day" into 2 Bannertastic banners and snipped them so they could fit snuggly on either side of the happy couple.

I'm still giggling, picturing the reaction to these cats. I don't even know if they prefer dogs.

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

Elephant party pop-up card (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

For the last day of Lawn Fawn inspiration week, we're showing off our best pop-up cards, using the new pop-up add-ons. I've used the Grassy Hillside Pop-up Add-on.

Maia went to a birthday party and I colored the little girl to match the birthday girl. I love that the girl from Bicycle Built For You can ride the elephant from Elphie Selfie! I will definitely be looking for other critters she can sit on!

I hope you like it! It was so much fun to put together. Visit the Lawn Fawn blog for much more pop-up card inspiration - click!

Mother's day flowers

This is my second post today - if you're looking for Lawn Fawn, scroll down or click HERE.

I'm here and on the Avery Elle blog today with this sweet little card for mama:

Are you thinking: gah! more purple?

I can't make any promises that this will be the last. I think it's such a pretty color lately!

The flowers, from Mother's Day, were stamped twice in soft pinks and greens and used to frame the sentiment.

I used the MISTI to double-stamp the sentiment, to make sure that it was good and saturated. I love how it pops.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by.

Hi there!

Bicycle built for you (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)


More purple. I really can't help myself. Lawn Fawn inspiration week continues with a closer look at Bicycle Built For You.  I love all of the little accessories that can take this sweet couple from a casual afternoon ride in the park, to a dressed up post-i-do-can-swinging adventure.

I layered all of my images over a sheet of Watercolor Wishes paper, onto which I flecked white ink for a more dreamy look. I then fit the greeting into a sweeping banner, from Bannertastic.

Bun in the oven (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there, and welcome back to another day of March's Lawn Fawn inspiration week.

Today, we're showing off the Watercolor Wishes paper collection. I continue my love affair with the purple Horseshoe paper:

This is a bit of a quirky card, but a smiley-faced oven is already pretty silly so I ran with it. I used some matching ink to add some shading around the edges of the watercolor paper, and that provided the perfect backdrop for my images.

The images are from Bun In The Oven and Sprinkled With Joy.

I love the surprise of opening the oven! The little bun looks so cute.

Hang in there (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Hang in there (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)


We're showing off this lazy sloth today, from Hang In There.  I've already put him on another card this week (click! if you missed it.)

I kept this one pretty simple, The black and white stripey backdrop provides the perfect pop for a more simple card.

Hang in there (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

One little tricky thing I did: I added a few more Os to the end of the HELLLOO - I needed it to look more full in the banner, and I really just thought it'd make him sound extra slothful. It wasn't even as tricky as I'm making it out to be. I inked up the last few vowels only and carefully stamped them on the end.

Wedding flowers (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

wedding flowers (Lawn Fawn Inspiration week)

Here's the thing. My cousin is getting married in July, and I've been tasked with making the wedding cards. Allll of the wedding cards. Like, from me, my sisters' families, and my parents. Here's the first.

I used Lawn Fawn's Fab Flowers to make this simple (and I hope elegant) wedding card.

I stamped the flowers in soft ink colors (stamping off onto a piece of scrap paper first so that the solid image would be even lighter.) Then, I added some loose shading with copic markers. The inks are water-based, so there was some bleeding, but that was part of the look.

I hope you like it! Kelly Marie recreated the card in her video this morning. If you'd like to see how it was made, head over to the Lawn Fawn blog and check it out - click!
