It’s time for another Lawn Fawn Fans Hop in time to celebrate Winter!
It’s the first week of Summer here in Aus, so it’s always a little funny doing opposite seasonal themes.
Before I tell you about my card – I need to let you know some quick info about this hop!
- It consists of 13 crafters, all huge fans of Lawn Fawn.
- We’ve been so lucky to have this hop sponsored, this time by Scrapbook.com
- There is $50 voucher up for grabs, all you have to do is comment on the video (link below). For more chances to win, simply keep hopping along and comment on each crafter’s video!
Now that you know all you need to know – let’s get looking at today’s card!
This whole card was inspired by the tiny, mouse shaped gingerbread cookie in the “A Creature Was Stirring” stamp set.
I am so lucky to have visited Disneyland twice so far in my life and loved EVERYTHING about it. Especially the food. One thing I remember seeing in the days we spent in the park as everything transitioned from Halloween to Christmas overnight, was all of the adorable holiday themed food! One of those foods being the cute Mickey gingerbread cookies! I just couldn’t help but make my own magical baking scene with all of these delicious and well-known treats!
There are MANY details in this card – from the fireworks outside to the knobs on the drawers and cupboards. And although there is a lot going on, I was so inspired by my memories that all of these sweet little touches came together so quickly.
I wasn’t going to make this card a shaker initially. But after making those big windows I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make this card even more “extra”. My shaker elements were simple – small clear gems and tiny white foam balls. I think they were just enough to add to the scene without being too distracting from all of the colourful elements.
For the first time ever, I used my WOW embossing powder correctly. I have had this powder since I first tried embossing and I was so confused by the texture of this one. It is chunky and gritty and didn’t at all work for wording. Turns out the container state “High” which I can only assume means that this particular powder is for added dimension and a very raised final result.
Perfect for this project!
These cinnamon scrolls needed ALL the icing. So this raised embossing powder was the perfect textured touch to add to make these look extra tasty!
I haven’t made many cards where I completely transform stamped images. I was a little apprehensive about doing this. Although I will never sell this card (I’m currently planning on it possibly being framed and a permanent feature either in my home year round or for Christmas) you just never know what reaction will come with licences and well-known characters. I hope this card comes across as a way of showing my love for the parks, my fond memories and experiences of the food and parades on my travels and the magic that has stayed with us, years after our trips.
I really hope you like this card! If you would like to see how it all came together, my YouTube video can be found below. Please don’t forget to subscribe to see more of my work!
