Every now and again, a new company hits it big at CHA. This year, undoubtedly, one of those companies is Lawn Fawn. And in our pursuit to bring you all things spectacular for
Just one year ago, Lawn Fawn launched with four stamp sets, but have quickly grown to thirty-six sets!! Lawn Fawn stamps are cute, whimsical, and even a bit quirky!! Their stamps feature original designs, with fonts that have been customized to perfectly coordinate with each set. And to give you the best stamp experience possible, Lawn Fawn stamps are manufactured in the USA with high quality photo-polymer.
This week Emily is helping us to embrace our inner cardmaker. And for cards, stamps are fun, easy, and repeatable!! Look at the sweet wonders that Kelly Marie, owner of Lawn Fawn stamps, designed.
Kelly Marie: Here is a card using Say Cheese, Hello Friend and Just My Type from Lawn Fawn. I paper pieced the polaroid for a fun look, and it is perfect for a sentiment on a card!
Kelly Marie: This card uses Say Cheese, Say Cheese, Too and My Silly Valentine (for the "you are"). It is a one layer simple card that looks really special!
Kelly Marie: This card uses Bannerific and shows how you can use Thickers (or other letter stickers) to add a sentiment to it!
Kelly Marie: This card using Bannerific and Sophie's Sentiments. It is a fun way to let a favorite patterned paper and ribbon shine. The sentiment can be changed for any occasion. (This would be a cute "It's a girl!" card, too, etc.)
Adorable, no? Kelly Marie makes it look easy and her cards are so doable, practical, and darling!! Thank you, Kelly Marie for sharing your talent and cards with us!!
But, we hear a few of you saying that you aren't cardmakers, so maybe you don't need some Lawn Fawn stamps. What???? Of course you do. Stamps aren't just for cardmakers, they also make delightful embellishments and titles on your scrapbook pages!
To convince you, we asked Lawn Fawn to send a set of their brand new stamps to Elizabeth and Donna. We asked them to create three layouts with their stamp set to see if it could be done.
And the verdict? Aye! Aye! A big round of applause!
♥ Lawn Fawn stamps + scrapbooking = heaven ♥
Here are some thoughts from Donna:
All of Lawn Fawn's stamps are cute, but I think these two sets in particular are really adorable and useful. I think for scrapbookers these two sets would be the most versatile as they could easily be used for both cards and scrapbook pages. Just as a reference I would consider myself a beginner stamper. I don't have any special markers for coloring my images and I generally don't do any special techniques. I just use the stamps and ink. I found the Lawn Fawn stamps to be of great quality, they stamped nice clear images. I know that a lot of scrapbookers are scared to use stamps on their pages because they are afraid of messing-up an otherwise nice page if for instance they don't get a good image. I tend to have this same fear and so I usually treat my stamps kind of like a sticker or a die-cut. I will stamp on another piece of paper or cardstock and then either punch or cut-out the image. That's mostly what I did with these layouts. Also, I took inspiration from the name of the stamp set itself as well as the sentiments included in the stamps.
Elizabeth received the Bannerific set. Just look at all her variations on the banner treatments!
In the first layout, Elizabeth stamped and trimmed the banner from some white cardstock. In her second layout, she cut out the inside of the flags and placed fabric below, stitching them together at the end. And in her third layout, for this one, she stamped patterned paper scraps and cut them out to create a big banner. She notes that it wasn't particularly time-consuming because she could stamp five at a time, and that the cutting apart went very quickly.
Today, the dear Kelly Marie of Lawn Fawn (dear, get it? deer? fawn? teehee!) is kindly offering two sets of Lawn Fawn stamps: Bannerific and Say Cheese.
