Fall is Here with Craft Show Projects

Hello friends!  I was really hoping to post this yesterday, but hubby was around and I was trying to get many different things done at once.  As you might guess, I am frantically running around trying to get a good start and handle on getting items made up for my up-coming craft table!  I will have more on that below, but first, I’d like to share a card I made for the Lawn Fawnatics challenge before it expires too! LOL

Vicki-LawnFawn-FallisHere

As you may have seen in my past posting, I had gotten MANY Lawn Fawn items recently as I just adore Fall/Halloween and of course Christmas soon to follow!  It’s hard resist so many cool things that come out each year!  (If I worked myself ahead of time, then I would be less frantic and be able to actually slowly enjoy my new items!  LOL)

So for this card, I have used the fun Thanks a Latte stamp set as well as the Forest Feast stamp set for accents and sentiment.  I’ve stamped the tree stump in brown ink at the bottom of a vanilla panel that I’ve cut out using the LF Cross-Stitched rectangle die.  I also used a cloud stencil to sponge in some clouds in the background behind the stump.  I’ve stamped and colored with my Copic markers the other elements of the design and cut them out with the coordinating dies and arranged them on the stump panel.  I stamped the sentiment under the cup on a strip of vellum with chocolate ink and then heat embossed it with clear glitter EP and wrapped it around the card base with the plaid paper as well as the twine with the white heat embossed sentiment that was cut from brown cardstock with a banner die strip.  Lastly, I’ve added some shimmer over the liquid contents in cup as well as the leaves.  I’ve actually made this card based on a sketch that I’ve entered below.

challenges:

  1.  Lawn Fawnatics – Mood Board

4.  Words 2 Craft By (W2CB57) – “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the Fall” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

5.  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – “Pop It Up” (Popped up cup, leaves and whipped topping)

6.  Aud Sentiments – Fall + a sentiment


Now I’d like to share something that I’ve been working on for my up-coming craft show next month.  It’s coming quickly and I have many things to get ready for it.  I’ve not made these before for purchase, but I find that I am always in need of them and use them every year, so I thought these would be a fun way for someone to present a gift:

These are my “Shaker Gift Card Holders”.   I had made one in a previous post that I did earlier this year, but you may already be familiar with my “Shaker Money Holders” which I did a tutorial for on Splitcoaststampers.com a couple of years back.  CLICK HERE if you’d like to see that tutorial with a video I did.  (You can also catch the link for it on the sidebar of my blog here as well.)

As you can see, I’ve used the same Lawn Fawn stamp set that I’ve used on my card above as well as pulled in some other of those cute little images from other sets too!

I am going to be burning the midnight oil for a while, so I will probably have to wait to share more photos after my craft show finishes up, but I will take photos as I create so that I can also keep track of what I’ve made and how it all went over.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my post this evening and I’ll see you again soon!

  3. Gorgeous card and love the warm colours and that cute latte image with the little smile. Fun scene making and always love a little bit of bling too x.
    Wow to the gift card shakers….They will sell well Vicki x. Looking forward to seeing photos from the craft show and all the time and hard work will be worth it x.

  4. Love the fall latte card the plaid is perfect. Then I scroll down AND see the shaker gift card holders and think I need to make some of those for sure. Headed to Splitcoast to find the video.

  5. That card is adorable, and oh my…look at all that creativity! I’m sure your booth is a favorite at craft shows! You will have to take some photos of your booth before the customers clean you out! I always say I’m going to do that, but never do. Our fairs have such ginormous prices on booth rentals, they make it hard to make money! Good luck, dear friend! Can’t wait to see more!!!

  6. What a wonderful array of Lawn Fawn cuteness you’ve shared in this post! I just LOVE the little cup of hot chocolate sitting on a tree stump – how creative and clever and CUTE too! Those gift card holders just blow me away too! They’re each beyond adorable and will surely be a big hit with your craft show! Nice work on everything!
