The Lawn Fawn Design Team is showcasing the new You're A Hoot Stamp Set and coordinating Lawn Cuts dies and Thank You Tags Stamp Set which coordinates with the previously released Tag You're It Lawn Cuts dies.
The Tag You're It Lawn Cuts dies are some of my very favorite and most used Lawn Cuts dies. I love a good tag die cut, don't you?! And coordinating stamps? Perfection. Lawn Fawn now three Lawn Fawn stamp sets that coordinate with this one die collection:
As promised (on THIS post) I'm sharing my custom stamped background using the brand new Argyle Backdrops Stamp Set, too. This is an awesome background basic, my friends. Awesome. You might remember seeing it on THIS card as well.
I created a video showing how I pulled all these stamps and dies together to create a set of five thank you cards.
To create the argyle backgrounds, I die cut smooth white cardstock using the largest rectangle in the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables Lawn Cuts die set and masked off the outer edge of the rectangle (the area past the stitching) using post it tape. Then I used two contrasting colors of ink with the Argyle Backdrops Stamp Set to create the background. To keep the stamped background from overpowering the rest of the design I die cut another rectangle from vellum and attached it over the stamped rectangle.
I stamped the images from You're A Hoot on smooth white cardstock, adding detailing to the owls eyes with my favorite black glaze pen and then die cut the owls, tree branches and leaves using the You're A Hoot Lawn Cuts dies.
I stamped the large tag design from the Thank You Tags Stamp Set on white cardstock and again on a 6x6 sheet of Sweater Weather patterned paper. I die cut the white tag using the Tag You're It Lawn Cuts dies. I die cut another tag from a contrasting sheet of Sweater Weather paper and also the hole reinforcement. Then I hand cut out the "inside" portion of the Sweater Weather paper out and adhered it to the white tag, glued the hole reinforcement in place and layered the two die cut tags together, securing with twine.
I die cut clouds from white cardstock and vellum using the Spring Showers Lawn Cuts dies and die cut vellum banners using the Stitched Journaling Card Lawn Cuts die set. I stamped "thanks" greetings from the Thank You Tags Stamp Set with Versamark and heat embossed the greetings with white embossing powder. I attached the journaling banners along the bottom of the larger layered tags with the Tiny Attacher.
I attached the die cut owls, leaves, clouds and tree branches to the layered tags, adhering the owl with my favorite foam adhesive for a bit of dimension.
I adhered the tags to the background using more foam adhesive and then adhered the whole design to a white card base.
