A cup of fall inspiration!

Hi, everybody! Happy Friday! Suzanne here with a new card that's inspired by a familiar coffee cup you may have seen around this fall. Here's an example of the design:

Several of my crafting friends have made cards lately with an extra paper cup like this one, but I always seem to put mine in the recycle bin before I think to save it for crafting!

So, I took out my Lawn Fawn stamp sets to see what stamps I could use to make a similar design, and this is what I came up with:

I've posted a list of all the stamp sets that I used on my blog, but I used the Love You A Latte set for the sentiment and coffee cup on the piece of kraft card stock. The bigger leaves are from the retired Harvest Season set, but there are leaves in other Lawn Fawn sets that you could use if you don't have that one. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're inspired to take a look at your Lawn Fawn stamps (even the tiny ones) and create something new!

No stamping autumn thanks

Its Kate here today and i have four cards and not one single bit of stamping.
I wanted to show off some of my favourite dies from Lawn Fawn.

This first card was going to be my project for today but as I was making it my mind was just flowing with ideas so i went with them lol.
I wanted to just do some inlaid die cutting  but I only inlaid the leaves from the Stitched leaves dies.
Once each piece was cut I coloured it with distress inks.
Everything was adhered back in place and I wanted some extra detail so I used the awesome stitched borders dies...seriously these are the most versatile dies.
The scripty thanks sentiment was cut from black card stock and adhered over the leaves.
Everything was adhered and placed on a ready made  card blank.

Next up I started with a white panel and using a scrap piece of  card that had 3 of the small stitched leaves cut from it i used it as a stencil.
I covered the whole panel and overlapped the leaves and went through a range of distress inks in autumnal colours.
I had a spare large leaf die cut so coloured that in the same colours and added to the panel before placing the scripty thanks over it.
It was then finished with some gold glimmer  mist some gold sequins and gold twine from lawn fawn.

Card number three and that centre panel is the stencil i used on card two. 
No waste here :)
I simply used a scrap card and double sided tape and made a panel using the gold lawn fawn twine to go behind the open spaces.
Before adding the scripty thanks i added some drops of gold glimmer  mist to the panel.

And lastly I used the three small leaves left from making cards two and three. 
Again i coloured them with distress inks and then tapped the lower section of the leaves onto a gold inkpad.
I then did the same with the black scripty thanks.
They were all adhered to a white panel that had been die cut with the scripty borders.

Thanks for looking.

Christmas Tree Ornament

Good morning friends!! 

Today I am sharing an adorable ornament I made for my youngest to hang on the Christmas tree! He loves to help decorate every year and I figured he would love to have an ornament especially for him with his name on it! 

Is it just adorable? I can not wait to show it to him! He is going to be so excited! 
Those adorable penguins just make me smile. 

The ornament was cut using my Silhouette Cameo so now I am thinking of how many other ornaments I can make and maybe fill up his own little tree using Lawn Fawn stamps and dies!! His own little Lawn Fawn tree sounds so fun!! 

I used the new 6x6 pad Bokeh in the Snow paper pad for my snowy background and one of the Stitched Hillside Border Dies to make the snow. The penguins and sentiment is from the adorable Tobaggan Together stamp set and used Copics to color in the critters.  His name was die cut using Quinn's ABC's and more paper from the Boken in the Snow paper pad. I finished it off using some Red Sparkle hemp cord. 

I can't wait to make more of these! I'm thinking all of my nieces and nephews may need one as well. 
Hope you enjoyed this project today! Thanks for stopping by!
