Lawn Fawn Birthday Celebration

Some Birthdays are just more fun than others. Today some crafty friends and I are celebrating Lawn Fawn's 5th Birthday! Happy Birthday Lawn Fawn!! When my creative friend Jenn Shurkus asked if I wanted to join in on a Blog Hop to celebrate this event, how could I say no?
 


I am fairly new to Lawn Fawn but my collection of products is growing quickly - especially the stamp and die sets. Now that Lawn Fawn is creating a die set to match each stamp set you can't go wrong. I have learned a lot about Lawn Fawn products from Jenn, who is an awesome teacher and has become a great friend - and enabler of products. (said with love!!)
Thanks to Amazon Prime - LOVE THEM, I was able to quickly score the Lawn Fawn Year Five Stamp and Die Set. The otter in this set is sooooo stinkin' cute I can see myself using this often. Here's my card ...

 
My card base was created by layering white and patterned papers using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangle Stackable Dies. I love the added stitched detail and the dies make this look very easy to accomplish. I then die cut a window using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Circle Stackable Dies. To create a frame for the window, I layered two consecutive sizes of the circle dies and ran them through my big shot together - this easily created a frame to finish off the window. These die sets are a must have for card makers!
I layered some patterned papers from the Let's Polka 6x6 Petite Paper Pad and used my scalloped deco scissors to cut waves. I inked the edges of the waves with Ranger's Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and layered them together. I added another piece of paper form the Hello Sunshine 6x6 Petite Paper Pad to finish the background. Next, I stamped and colored the ADORABLE otter and present, die cut them and added them to my card. I accented the waves and part of the present with glitter. Lastly I stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn's Black Licorice Dye Ink - this ink gave a sharp, clean image for stamping.

 
I am NOT a quick card maker and am still newish to cards, but having all these fabulous Lawn Fawn products definitely makes cards easy and fun to create!!

HAPPY FIFTH BIRTHDAY LAWN FAWN!!!
