flying by to say hi | Lawn Fawn


I'm back again with another interactive card.  This has been good for me.  I'm using product that has been literally sitting around waiting to be used. 

So I'm notorious for getting caught up in the excitement of new releases (who doesn't?).  The difference between me and about 1/2 the crafting population, maybe 1/4 of the populations, a ton of my new purchases don't get used right away (cough cough).  Anyone else have the Lawn Fawn Slide on Over lawn cuts and haven't used them?  I'm keeping things real.  I watched this video which has some great tips.  I just noticed that the release was in May 2016.  Oh well, better late than never, right?


In case you haven't been following me for a while.  We have an airplane.  D built it and is working away on a second one that is a 4-seater (yes!).   I do own Lawn Fawn's Flying By + Bon Voyage (looks like I need to add Plane and Simple).  

I managed to combine the following Distress Oxides on a bristol panel:

Worn Lipstick  |  Fired Brick  |  Aged Mahogany  |  Dusty Concord

You gotta try out the Trinity Stamps Blendability brushes.  It makes it so much easier to blend inks!


I sprinkled the panel with water and then followed up with a couple sprays of the (retired) Hero Arts Gold Metallic Shimmer.

I used the curvy Slider and kept the die cut piece to add to my card base to give the scenery a more finished look.

The clouds have a smidge of B0000 and a bunch of Wink of Stella.

Love the Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain Borders.  They've been cut in Stampin' Up Sugar Plum cardstock.  I have so much SU cardstock that I'm trying to incorporate them more into my card designs.


The sentiment was embossed in Hero Arts Gold.

I really love this color palette don't you?  It was inspired by the Lawn Fawnatics Color Inspiration:



Such a fun Valentine's Day color palette!

In case you didn't notice in my photos, the airplane flew across the card:


I have to confess that I've always thought of myself as a lazy crafter.  Not in the sense that I wouldn't die cut a bazillion images to add to one card but I'm always slow on the interactive/3D etc techniques.  I am loving this new found fun in paper crafting.

  2. What a cute card! I've been forcing myself since I started crafting again to use only my stash and not buy anything new. It's been good for me, but I'm not sure how much longer that will last!

  5. Haven't even looked hard at working with these...you're so brave, lol! I'm having trouble keeping up with what I have in 'regular' stamps and dies, and just don't want to start on this. But I so love what you've done here! Oh the colors, and the cuteness! And yes, I did notice that your plane moved all through your blog. This is just spectacular! You really do need to make more. I think you've got the knack! And once D. gets that plane built, maybe a trip to the EAA this summer...? Would love it!! Bev
