Lawnscaping challenge #101: Dots and/or Stripes

Hi and happy Monday!!

I hope your weekend had been a wonderful one! Mine was great and I'm already missing it lol but a new Lawnscaping challenge starts today so our Monday will be much brighter hehe!

This time the challenge is about playing with dots and/or stripes. I used both for my card because these patterns match really well in my opinion :)

I know it's still very soon for Easter and a bit soon for Spring but I really wanted to play with pastel spring-y colors and make a card with this bunny idea that I had a lot of time ago.


I used the bunny from Snow Day and I created a giant carrot with one of the trees from the same set, we don't want a hungry bunny, don't we? Hee hee
I just stamped the tree and draw some lines to simulate the lines of a carrot, then adhered some green twine for the leaves.
I had to use some new stamps too, of course! So I stamped the sentiment from Eggsta Special Easter and one of the frames from Flirty Frames (I know I'm going to use these a LOT).


I hope you like my card and feel inspired to play with us! Don't forget to take a look at the Lawnscaping blog to see the amazing projects using dots and stripes from the other DT girls. I love each one of them!

Baked with Love - Lawn Fawn Feb inspiration week

This is the last post from Lawn Fawn February inspiration week *sob* but there will be another fabulous inspiration week next month and we have still another stamp set to feature today so don't be sad :)

It's time for a new favorite!! I love baking so I literally squealed when Kelly showed us this set. Baked with Love is a super cute set full with ingredients and tools for a perfect day of baking!

So I had to bake something :) And because Valentine's day was last week (when I made this project) I made some red velvet cupcakes. Well, they were delicious and I had to hide a pair of them for the pictures, lol!!

Baked With Love

I made this cupcake box for two using the Silhouette and then decorated it with the new stamps. I'm super excited because I finally have a Kitchen Aid, even when it's a stamp haha!

Baked With Love - detail

The stamped background takes a bit of time to make a ton of these but using just patterned paper and the tag makes this a quick project and I think that it will make an amazing gift for a special one. I mean, homemade cupcakes in a handmade packaging?? I'd love to receive some from time to time :) (or everyday).

The girls from the Lawn Fawn DT have wonderful projects using this set so go and check them out at the Lawn Fawn blog, there's also a video from Kelly and a giveaway!

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day!!

Let's Polka, Mon Amie - Lawn Fawn Feb inspiration week

Are you enjoying this inspiration week at Lawn Fawn? I sure am!! Today the star of the show is the new paper collection: Let's Polka, Mon Amie. It has the same patterns like the original Let's Polka but with pastel tones and I love mixing both too!

I made a table setting for a birthday or spring party combining the new papers with the new green ink for a more sprin-y look. I absolutely love this tone of green!

Party serving

I used the new Candy Box and Stitched Labels dies to make little gifts for anyone in the party, using Louie's ABCs for the monogram on each one, sponged with the new ink.

I also decorated a little milk bottle with a stripe of paper, some twine and one of the new heart wood veneers.

Party serving - detail 2

Balloons & a bunny - Lawn Fawn Feb inspiration week

Hi there!
Sorry, I've been disapeared yesterday! But today I have two projects to share with you :) Lawn Fawn inspiration week continues and we are featuring more fun and new products!

My first project uses many new products: I played with Party Balloons dies (I'm totally in love with them!!) and used the new Scripty Saying stamps for the Balloon's strings, mixing the different strings and separating the "Happy Birthday to you" sentiment.

Happy Birthday

All the coloring is made with the new Lawn Fawn inks, I sponged the balloons, mixing different colors to create a gradient and stamped the background with Hippo (the grey one). Then I added some sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen and you can see it in the picture!!! LOL I can't believe it! hahaha. I was starting to think that I could never be able to capture WInk of Stella's sparkle in a photo!

Happy Birthday - detail

I've made this other card using Eggstra Special Easter stamp set and coordinating dies. I colored all the images with Copic markers, having some fun decorating all those Easter eggs :P

Eggstra Special

I combined this super cute stamps with the new background stamp set Gingham Backdrops and the new stackables dies Stitched Squares. I love this stitched dies, they add an special touch to any card!
