Wow! Where has summer gone? Lot's of things happening at The 'Creek, so please forgive the long time between posts. Before we get to the "heavier" sentiments of Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. I thought we would take a look at the playful style of Lawn Fawn. I have been on a bit of a binge getting their products for a few reasons. One, their style crosses their whole line, so mixing and matching up sets is easy. I especially like how they do little mini-sets that compliment the others, so if you only can spend a few bucks "freshening" your stash, you can! Like Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn is pretty readily available in brick 'n mortar stores as well as online, which makes it fun for a fast fix!
Lawn Fawn has lots of scene building sets and easy to use, interactive stand alone dies. Though not my forte, I plan to practice building scenes very soon.
One of the scariest, but exciting things going on is my attempt to do some youtube videos. I finished the "craft cave" tour- but am not sure when it will be posted, so come back soon! I want to pair it with a "Lawn Fawn Pop-Up Box Palooza!" video that I haven't shot yet. I have some really fun boxes in the works, that are easy as well.
I joined the Lawn Fawnatics group on FB and found out that they are starting to do challenges, so take a look.
In the meantime:
|Here's a quick and easy shaker card using #Lawn Fawn "How You Bean?" stamp set with shaker add-on die set.|
|Here is Kelly Marie, one of the Lawn Fawn owners at the Simon Says Create event demonstrating the pop-up box die during a make 'n take session I attended. I will be featuring this box several ways in a video soon!|
|These Halloween cards are from the "Booyah!" stamp set. I got several of their Halloween sets recently to show you soon!|
This set is very forgiving, so you don't need a Misti Tool, but if you are mass-producing, it will come in handy! I masked off the leaves and flowers, stamped three layers of ink to each flower and added the black centers. I went over the black with a black Glaze Pen for some dimension and shine. I die cut the white panel and layered it on a card base. After adding the sentiment, I flicked gold paint on it, then added some clear drops to finish it off.
