"Smitty's ABCs" Lawn Fawn Sneak Peek!

Hi there, everyone!!  Are you excited for day 3 of the April Lawn Fawn sneak peeks?!  I think the design team did an amazing job with Fanciful Frames yesterday, and there were so many different styles and uses of them!!  Gotta love that!

Today we are showcasing a brand new alphabet set that I just know you are going to love!!  It has a bit of a typewriter look to it, and is really clean as well!!  Scrapbookers- this set will be perfect for journaling, and adding subtitles to your layouts.  Card makers- you can create pretty much ANY sentiment you could ever want with this set, and that is just awesome!!  It would look really awesome inside of a Fanciful Frame as well....just sayin'. Tee hee!

I chose to utilize the stamp set by itself on a card, and I just love how it turned out.  It was time to break out my favorite rainbow theme, and channel my CAS side.  I also just got some new twine in the mail, and I wanted to play around with it.  I used Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday #6 again for this one, and I love how completely different this card looks from the other one....that is what I love about sketches!!  They can be used over and over again, and you will never get the same result twice! It also fits the Wee Memories Challenge #51 again, which is to use twine.  Well, this one REALLY fits that challenge...tee hee!  And last but definitely not least, Lily Pad Cards "Kathy's Color Throw Down" is all kinds of rainbow goodness...and my card fits it perfectly!!  Here is what I came up with:
"You Color My World" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (red) & Papertrey Ink (white) 
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Smitty's ABCs set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: frost white)
Twine: The Twinery
Jewels/Paper Frill: Doodlebug Designs
Border Punch: Fiskars (Upper Crest) 

Instructions: Fold red cardstock in half to make card base.  Punch an upper crest border to the bottom of white cardstock block, and adhere an aqua scalloped paper frill to the top.  Tie size pieces of rainbow colored twine around the block, and arrange as shown.  Stamp the sentiment to the bottom of the card, and then adhere the entire twine block to the front.  Accent the lower right corner with a rainbow of jewels to finish. 

I am really excited to see what all the other design team members have created with Smitty's ABCs!  There is so much that can be done with this stamp set, and I bet we are going to see a ton of different styles and uses....so be sure to check out what everyone has done!! 

And don't forget that the Lawn Fawn blog always has some amazing giveaways during release week!!  Here is where you can win so far...be sure to follow the commenting instructions!!  ♥♥♥

Until later,
