Garden Gate: Thinking About You

I have a card featured on the Lawn Fawn blog today for June Inspiration Week! Today it's all about the Thinking About You Border and Scripty Congrats dies.

I had so much fun creating this card to look like a wildflower garden. I just love the look of kraft with bright white!

I used Penelope's Blossoms to create my wildflower garden on a Stitched Oval that I had water-colored with Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn. Blissful Botanicals and Peace Joy Love add the perfect frame. The garden gate is from Picket Fence Borders and of course the sentiment is the Thinking About You Border die cut. I used a variety of ink from Lawn Fawn, Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp.

You're So Sweet

I couldn't resist this super sweet set by Clearly Besotted called Simply Scrumptious. I love the fun sentiments with a pretty scripty font. The berries, flowers and vines are so lovely. I found it at Simon Says Stamp.

I just got my brand new Lawn Fawn ink colors so I used Celery Stick and Lobster along with Freshly Cut Grass to stamp a very simple strawberry wreath.  So easy to create such an adorable thank you card!

Thank You Berry Much

I also used Lawn Fawn Coral 12x12 paper from the Pint-sized Patterns Beachside Collection along with their Stitched Square Stackables dies. The stamped panel was popped up using a square of fun foam; I love how this gives the card some structure and makes it look really polished.

Thanks so much for visiting, leave me a comment I'd love to pay a visit to your blog!

Lawn Fawn Milk Carton and Stitched Borders Dies

So I get to play with the new Lawn Fawn products a little early and I'm here to tell you, you will love this release! Everything will be available on June 4th at lawnfawn.com and all the usual places.

I had the idea to use the Gingham Backdrops stamp to decorate the Milk Carton. I added a border of stitching with the cross-stitch Stitched Border. So easy and it turned out so cute!

Bright red gingham makes me smile! I used my MISTI to stamp the gingham on both pieces of the milk carton. It's easy to line up and the stamp almost covers the whole body of the die cut with just a little border where I added some stitched detail.

gingham milk carton 2
I love this hummingbird from Gleeful Gardens. The sentiment and frame are from Flirty Frames.

gingham milk carton 3
The little cross-stitch border is so fun! I'm obsessed with this red ink which may or may not be available very soon {wink, wink}! It's gorgeous and it stamps so crisp!

gingham milk carton 4
I colored one of the Wood Veneer Hearts with a red Copic marker and added some Clear Glitter Wink of Stella.

The possibilities are endless with this cute Milk Carton die.
