Welcome to our second day of w&w + Lawn Fawn creations. Winnie and Walter are crafters from the top of their furry heads to the tip of their tails which means we love inking up other stamps to play along with w&w stamps. Who says you can have too many stamps? And boy do Winnie and Walter love Lawn Fawn. Who else has so much playfulness, joy and sunshine in everything they do? We think stamping with Lawn Fawn stamps would put a spring in anyone's step.
We hope we lift your spirits today with our w&w and Lawn Fawn projects!
>>>THE GOOD STUFF<<<
Today I have a sweet little valentine for you. We have a special place in our heart for the little snail, and I knew he would be cute with the Bee Mine set from Lawn Fawn. I created a little garden with the flowers, stamping them with chalk ink colors and coloring them in with Prismacolor pencils, and accenting them with a white gel pen. I masked off the snail from You've Got Love Mail so that I could use green chalk ink for the snail and then stamped him in brown on pink paper for the shell. I added fruit punch stickles :) to the revealed pink heart and accents of more white gel pen. I stamped the cute little bee with his heart shaped trail and added blue stickles to the trail and his wings too. I think the two sentiments also work very well together. Mixing fonts makes me happy. I did use a pen to draw the fluttering of the wings and added a few pearls to finish off the card.
I know Lawn Fawn is adorable (and Julie and soon Vanessa will be giving you the cute), but for some reason I went down a different route for this card. An unorthodox color scheme may even mean this could be given to a guy...real guys will accept a little pink as they have nothing to prove. I began with a white woodgrain card base (never can have enough woodgrain!). The background is made of flicks of Color Shine by Heidi Swapp, sci-fi stars and open circles from the Scenery: Big Bang Confetti stamp set with an open heart added from Lawn Fawn's A Birdie Told Me. I filled in the hearts with white Inkssentials enamel accents and the small black circles with black Inkssentials enamel accents from Ranger to add glossy texture. The sentiment strip is a piece of vellum black embossed with the "love note" from The Write Stuff: Love Story. Note to self: buy embossing buddy or the like for a much cleaner end result when embossing on vellum. I attached the vellum strip to a larger strip of yellow patterned paper using my beloved Tiny Attacher. All the patterned paper is from Allison Kreft's Sweet Notes 6x6 paper pad for Webster's Pages. The two larger hearts were die cut with Lawn Fawn's Hearts Lawn Cuts (dies). Last touch was the xoxo wood chip by Freckled Fawn (so darling).
Vanessa has made a trio of sweetly sensational cards. We are not sure which one is our favorite as we love them all.
Adorable, right? Make sure to CLICK HERE to visit Vanessa's blog to get the details on these perfectly precious cards!
