Hello friends and welcome to the Lawn Fawn Mini May 2023 Inspiration and Release Week! On May 18 our 4 new stamp sets and coordinating dies along with 6 new standalone die sets, 2 new hot foil sets, and a new stencil will be for sale at your favorite store and at www.lawnfawn.com! Woohoo! Until then we will have fun posts with design team projects, intro videos, and giveaways!
Today is our showcase of Magic Iris Beehive Add-On! This stitched beehive is so perfectly sweet for all your projects! This set pairs with Magic Iris for an extra amazing way to share your greetings. The beehive opening fits all of the sentiments in the Magic Messages Collection for lots of ways to show how much you care!
I have two cards to share with you today. First I want to start with this amazing Magic Iris Beehive Add on!
I started by die cutting the beehive from Sunflower cardstock and then added in details by coloring with my OLO Markers.
For the background, I die cut the (NEW) Honeycomb Backdrop from White cardstock and used that as a stencil. I ink blended on Guava, Sunflower, Fake Tan, Celery Stick and Mermaid ink from Lawn Fawn. After removing my handmade stencil, I went back over the areas with the same color.
I added flicks of White Paint and Gold Metallic watercolor to the background because that’s just what I do lol.
I decorated the front of the card with the branch and beehive plus some white flowers to break up the background a little. The little bees flying around are from the Hive Five stamp set.
The sentiment is from the (NEW) More Magi Messages stamp set. I heat embossed it in Gold embossing powder which I thought would tie in nicely with my Gold splatters. Then just added it to the center with foam squares.
I finished off the card by framing it with a White border using the Stitched Scalloped Rectangles.
My next card features the More Magic Messages but on its own.
Here I used the Sunburst Backdrop (one of my favs) for the background and ink blended using Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink.
I added a Puffy Cloud border at the bottom and the Stitched Rainbow to finish setting the scene for my mice.
The mice are from the (NEW) Just Plane Awesome stamp set and of course a few clouds from All The Clouds. It will be rare to find a card from me without the clouds lol.
I stamped the sentiment in Jet Black Ink and colored it in a rainbow assortment.
I finished off the card but adding some Prisma Glitter to my clouds for sparkle.
I am having so much fun with this release! Can’t wait to show you more!
If there is a card you would like to see how I created it, be sure to leave a comment. I’ll be working on videos soon!
