Lawn Fawn Friday

Hello friends!  Yay, it’s Friday!  I have lots of fun Lawn Fawn “goodies” to share with you today and although it’s still a bit warm over my way, I am in the mood for Fall, how about you?  There’s nothing better in the Fall, for me, than a warm apple cider donut that we get every year from an apple orchid we like to visit each Fall!  It had me thinking of the current challenge going on…

Vicki-LF-FallTreats

It may be a bit of an oldie, but a goodie to me and I really enjoy using it!  I have pulled out my LF Love You a Latte stamp set to base my card for today.

I started with a white A2 sized top folding card base and added a piece of (now retired) “Perfectly Plaid Fall” mini paper stack that I’ve cut with the LF Stitched Rectangle die along with the pieces used on my image panel also cut with the same die set.  I layered that onto a white piece of cardstock that was cut from the LF “Scalloped Rectangle die” (Looks to be retired too!)  I have taken a strip of the plaid papers and used the LF Valentine Borders die to cut the edging on it.  I then wrapped some twine around it and added the LF Stitched Leaves that were cut from kraft cardstock and colored on the edges with distress ink and a foam blending tool.  I then tied a bow with the twine and placed it over the leaves.

I colored my images, fussy cut them out and placed them over my layered paper panels and then popped it up over the plaid card base with some craft foam.

Upon a closer view of the image, you can see that I white heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set.  I also added some glitter to the marshmallows in the cup and covered the donut with some glossy accents.  I added a LF Small Stitched Leaves that I made similar to the others to tuck inside with my treats! 🙂  All the leaves were covered with a glitter brush pen.

I thought this was a good place to stick in this project I made and had entered into my local county fair last month.  This particular item did not place, but the category was “Hand Stamped Item Other Than a Card”…so I created this using a Lawn Fawn stamp:

Vicki-LFSkunk-Wood Slice

I found a bag of these really cute wood slices when I was out shopping with my mom earlier this Summer at Hobby Lobby.  They seemed like a perfect size to do this with!

I stamped this adorable skunk from the Lawn Fawn Stinkin’ Cute stamp set and then colored him in with my Prismacolor pencils.  Of course the woodgrain give it some slight imperfections, but I didn’t mind and thought it gave it more character!  (See the wood knot under his chin!)  I’ve added some green “Flower Soft” for the grass portion to give him something to stand on.  I also added some glitter to the hearts above his head.  Hubby drilled a hole in it for me so that I could add some twine for it to hang.

Here I’ve turned it at a bit of an angle so that you can see the thickness of the slice and the fun texture of the bark on it.  I thought this would be so cute on a gift bag or something.  I have it hanging in my room because he’s just too stinkin’ cute anyway! 🙂

Speaking of Lawn Fawn “goodies”….it’s been a while since I’ve had my “fix” of shopping for some cute Lawn Fawn stuff and I saw where if you placed an order of $60 or more, they are giving out an adorable enamel deer pin with your order!  (I think TODAY is the last day to get one if you want to get in on the deal too!)  So I ‘had’ to shop….

Vicki-LawnFawnGoodies

I basically just threw it all in the pile to photograph here, but there are some REALLY fun goodies to play with in here and I can’t wait to get to it!  Yay!  And a head’s up for my blog readers…don’t forget that next month I will have a fun give away in honor of my birthday month!  Be sure you don’t miss it!

Thanks for stopping in today and I wish you all a fabulous weekend!

P.S.  Sunday I will be sharing a post with a brand new release…so be sure to check that out too!  Bye!

  1. Vicki, I love, love, love that plaid paper on the card! What a marvelous fall card. I’m so ready for the hot weather to be gone and the crisp fall evenings to arrive. 😀
    That little skunk is so precious. I never even thought about stamping onto wood disks but I have a pile of them and I’m digging out my Christmas stamps so I can make them into tree ornaments. What a fantastic inspiration you are! 😀

  2. Fantastic card, it reminds me of the fall mornings coming up when I will be having coffee on the deck! Like the plaid background, your wood decoration is just adorable and your order looks like fun! Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

  3. Gorgeous card Vicki, and I have used Lawn Fawn stamp before but only had one….sad but true, but now I have a few and another arrived today in the mail so I am going to use them more often. Today Pumpkin Spice arrive and the other I have is the lolly machine one, can’t remember the name without looking in my folder of stamps…So now I have 3. Think you have inspired me and I love the fact they are not large stamps…xx
    Thanks for birthday wishes too.

  4. OMG, Vicki! I follow the Lawn Fawn Instagram page and I’m pretty sure I saw them packing your order and I’m SO jealous! I just love their products and I love this fun card you have created for the fall. Thank you for entering our Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week, so glad you did! Crystal

  8. Oh your fall card is too sweet. The donut looks like a pumpkin spice donut. LOL. The wood piece with the skunk would make a cute ornament. What happy mail you have. Love LF stamps. Have a great weekend.

  9. Your greetings card is great. I love the checkered background, it looks so sweet. It perfectly emphasizes the beautiful bouquet of leaves. So beautiful you composed a card with latte and biscuit. The whole creates a great wish card. Just like a birch decoration. I love the sweet skunk and the grass it stands on. You’re right, the texture of the tree makes this decoration even more interesting.

  10. Absolutely autumn! I like the checked patterns you’ve used – they give such a rustic feel to the card. The double twine bow is a perfect finisher. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
