Have you heard the news? Lawn Fawn has launched their own new challenge called Lawnfawnatics. There will be a new challenge posted twice per month and one winner from all entries will be randomly selected to receive a $25 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn online store. Cool, right?! Today is the final day of their inaugural challenge. Given my love of all things Lawn Fawn, I thought I would create a card and play along.

I started with a 4 x 5.25″ piece of Whisper White card stock. I ran it through my Big Shot using the Confetti embossing folder from Stampin’ Up!® While I had my Big Shot out, I also die cut a few other pieces I planned to use for my design. I used the largest scalloped oval from the Layering Circle Framelits by Stampin’ Up to cut out a piece of plaid paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper stack. I also used the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and cut it once from a piece of Whisper White and once from a piece of vellum.

For my stamping, I used the Year Seven set Lawn Fawn released recently in honor of their seventh birthday. Isn’t that little piñata absolutely adorable?! Using Intense Black ink from Simon Says Stamp, I stamped it twice on a piece of Whisper White, once on a piece of yellow patterned paper from the Watercolor Wishes paper stack by Lawn Fawn, and once each on three different plaid papers from the Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper stack.

I die cut the Whisper White piñatas using the coordinating die then fussy cut the little piñata images stamped on the various patterned papers right along the stamping line so I could do some paper piecing. I saw this done recently on a card by my friend Taheerah recently and knew I just had to paper piece that adorable little piñata, too! After I had each piece fussy cut, I went around the edges with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker to hide any white that might show once everything was pieced today. I used some Tombow liquid glue to adhere all the patterned pieces on the die cut piñata.

Next, I stamped the sentiments from the Year Seven stamp set on the stitched oval. I filled the center section of the oval with the small candy and confetti images also included in the stamp set. Once I had filled the center of the oval, I used my Copic markers to do some simple coloring to fill them in. To help tone the background down a bit, I used the vellum oval I die cut. I trimmed off the top and bottom quarter so the vellum only covered the candy section. I ran it through my Xyron sticker maker then adhered it to the stamped oval. I then adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using tape runner.

Now it was time to assemble the card. I created an A2 top-folding card base using Sugarplum cardstock from the Rainbow Assortment cardstock collection from Lawn Fawn. I adhered the embossed background layer to the card base using tape runner then adhered the scalloped circle focal panel in the center of the card, also using tape runner. I finished the front of the card by adhering the piñata over the candy section using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wanted to decorate the inside of the card a bit as well. I took the second White White die cut piñata and did some very simply Copic Coloring on it using C3, C1, C00, and 0. I adhered a 4 x 5.25″ Whisper White layer to the inside of the card using tape runner, then adhered the piñata in the lower left-hand corner also using tape runner and that completed my card.

I’m entering this card in the following challenges:

Until next time …
