Fun with Lawn Fawn

HI Friends

I hope you had a great weekend. I really enjoyed mine.  We had a low-key weekend which was just what was needed.

Today, I’m sharing some water-colored projects I made using Penelope’s blossoms.  I am getting so hooked on water-coloring these days. I’ll warn you now, you are likely to see more of these in the coming days.

I also used Summertime Charm and Our Friendship Grows.  These were so fun to do. I’m still getting the hang of it, but it’s fun to practice.  I used distress inks and distress markers and watercolor paper for the effect. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs and blessings

Lawnscaping challenge #85

Hi Friends

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend (for those of us in the USA, a three day weekend!) I'm beginning a new chapter in my career today, and I'm really excited about it.

Today, we kick off the next Lawnscaping Challenge, a summer color challenge featuring turquoise, yellow, and orange.

We are fortunate to have Simon Says Stamp sponsoring this challenge. The winner will receive a $25 to shop in their online store.




I ended up making two cards for this challenge.  The Lawn Fawn Let's Polka collection works perfectly with this color challenge, and I couldn't limit myself. Here's what I came up with: 


I used the fun Chit Chat stamp set and the Let's Polka Sequins to finish off the projects.  Super easy and yet bright and cheery.

Be sure to go to the Lawnscaping blog and see the rest of the design team projects and for the details on how to enter the challenge.  We sure hope you decide to play along.  These colors are so perfect for summer that the possibilities are endless.

Hugs and blessings.

Lawn Fawn Get Well Soon + Wish You Were Here, Too

Hi Friends

I hope you are enjoying the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week.  Today, we are featuring projects using the Get Well Soon and Wish You Were Here, Too.  I have cards using both sets.

Get Well Soon is such a great set and such a bargain.  There are so many options out of this mini set.

For Wish You Were Here, Too, I did the no line Copic coloring which I am still working to master.  I also used Love you S’more and Happy Trails. When I saw Alaska, I immediately thought of camping and bears, so this is what I  came up with:

Happy Friday and Happy Marshmallows

Hi Friends!

Happy Friday! Yay for the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans? We’re hoping for a laid back weekend to catch up on things around the house. 

Today, I wanted to share a birthday card I made for a birthday part we attended last weekend.  Our pastor’s son, Jonathon, made up a comic book called the Happy Marshmallow. It just seemed fitting to make him a Happy Marshmallow birthday card.

I think he was more excited about the Star Wars Legos we got for him, but the card cracks me up. 

I used the Lawn Fawn’s Love you S’more, Birthday Tags, and So Much to Say.  These were colored using my Prisma colored pencils.

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and blessings

Lawnscaping Challenge

Hi Friends

I hope you all had a great weekend!  They always go by SO fast.  I could usually a few more days.  Last week, I was out of town and didn’t get home until late on Friday. I spent the weekend getting caught up on things around the house, but I still have more to do and could use some more sleep!

Enough of that, onto the new Lawnscaping challenge.  This challenge is all about Stars and Stripes, use stars, stripes or both on your projects.  This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn.

Here’s what I came up with:

I used the die from Wish You Were Here and Milo’s ABCs. Here is how I made the card:

  • Adhere red strips of paper to a white panel of paper.
  • Die cut the white and red striped panel with USA
  • Die cut a small piece of blue paper
  • Emboss stars on blue panel, trim down and adhere to the USA
  • Stamp sentiment on velum and dry with heat gun
  • Adhere USA to velum
  • Attach velum panel to blue card base
  • Doodle faux stitching

Be sure to visit the Lawnscaping blog to see the design team inspiration and for details on how to participate.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Hugs and Blessings

Happy Memorial Day

WelcomeWreath_LynnetteKauffman

Hi Friends

Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you are enjoying the long weekend (here in the US).  This is a great time to thank those who serve our country. 

Today, I thought I’d share a wreath I made using some Lawn Fawn “Lawn Cuts.”

 

DSC_0052

I used the newest set of alphabet Lawn Cuts, Louie’s ABCs, and the Puffy Star Stackables. I bought a wooden wreath and painted it blue. Then I die cut stars out of glittery felt.  I used it because I liked the sparkle and it’s less flimsy. Then I just glued stars together and arranged them on the wreath and adhered. I made the Welcome banner, glued them with fabric glue and attached.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and blessings
