The Lawn Fawn CHA Sneak Week is here!
I love when Lawn Fawn releases dies to coordinate with older stamp sets. I've been wishing for *coordinating dies for the You've Got Mail Stamp Set for awhile now. The sweet mailbox is just the right size to create any number of cute scenes with Lawn Fawn Critters! I paired the mailbox and larger letter from the You've Got Mail Stamp Set with the adorable birdie from the Year Four Stamp Set, snail, grass, and smaller envelope from the Gleeful Gardens Stamp Set and the skunk from the *Stinkin' Cute Stamp Set (coming soon). The colors of the background and envelopes would make this a great card for Valentine's Day but really this sweet card would work for any time you needed to send a hug in the mail to someone!
*Please remember that this is the Sneak Week, meaning the new products shown are not yet available for purchase. As soon as they start hitting stores I will be updating all the Sneak Week posts and videos with shoppings links. Yay!
I started by stamping the images from the You've Got Mail, Gleeful Gardens, Year Four, and *Stinkin' Cute stamp sets on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink. I colored in the images with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here are the colors I used for each of the images:
- MAILBOX: 038, 031
- SKUNK: 900, 095, 028
- PINK LETTERS: 230, 028
- RED LETTERS: 021, 022
- BIRD: 036, 302, 028, 070
- SNAIL: 202, 028, 095, 021, 022
- GRASS: 047, 053
Once all the images were dry I die cut them with the coordinating *You've Got Mail Dies, Gleeful Gardens Dies, Year Four Dies, and *Stinkin' Cute Dies.
For the background, I die cut two A2 sized rectangles from watercolor cardstock using the largest die from the Large Stitched Rectangles Collection. From one of the rectangles I die cut a hill border using a new *Simple Stitched Hillside Border Die.
On the solid rectangle background I applied Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks for a pretty pink background that lightens as it get closer to the top. On the hillside border I applied Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. I sprayed both pieces with water from a Distress Sprayer and let the water sit for 30-45 seconds and then dabbed it up with a dry paper towel.
Once the Distress Inked pieces were dry, I appliedSpun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink through the Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts Stencil for even more interest for the background. I stamped the greeting from the You've Got Mail Stamp Set using Lobster Ink.
I assembled the scene on a side fold card base using a combination of Zots Medium and Zots Bling Glue Dots.
