"Critters Ever After": Lawn Fawn Inspiration week

Hey there, everyone!  Welcome to the March Lawn Fawn inspiration week!!  We have a fun week in store for you, showcasing projects using some of the newly released stamps and the "Bright Side" paper line.  You should see all of the new items in your favorite store that carries Lawn Fawn, and of course, you can purchase what you like from the Lawn Fawn website as well!

Tonight we are sharing projects using "Critters Ever After", the latest in the Critters series by Lawn Fawn.  The critters are such a popular stamp collection, and it seemed fitting to carry a stamp set of magical critters, don't you think?  This stamp set, particularly the unicorn, makes me think back on my days in elementary school when I was obsessed with Lisa Frank.  I had stickers upon stickers upon stickers, not to mention school folders & notebooks, stationary...who knows what else!  My favorite folder ever had a purple and pink unicorn on it, which you will see I used on my card as well!  Such great memories of being a kid!

Before I share my card, I wanted to also share that Bazzill Basics has done a Lawn Fawn color match for the Bright Side paper and Bazzill Basics cardstock.  This is such a great tool, and really makes sure that you get perfectly matched cardstock.  We have the matching Bazzill cardstock, and let me tell you....it really does match perfectly.  Bazzill definitely knows what they are doing!  And as Lawn Fawn adds new collections to their arsenal, it will get updated on this color match page!  So, with all that said...here is the card that I created for tonight!
  "May All Your Dreams Come True" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (whirlpool) & Papertrey Ink (smooth white)
Paper: Lawn Fawn (Bright Side 6x6 pad)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Critters Ever After & Bon Voyage set)
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black) 
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Glitter: DecoArt
Colored Pencils: Heidi Swapp
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Dies: Lil Inkers (rainbow), My Favorite Things (heart) & Papertrey Ink (grass layers)
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from smooth white cardstock.  Cut a whirlpool cardstock block slightly smaller, round the upper corner and adhere to the front.  Diecut the two grass layers from patterned paper, and adhere to the bottom of the card.  Stamp the sentiment to the bottom of the card, and finish with a stamped heart.  Diecut the rainbow layers from patterned paper, adhere to the right side of the card and trim off the excess.  Diecut the heart from patterned paper, and adhere to the bottom of the rainbow.  Stamp the cloud & heart to white cardstock, cut-out, adhere and color in the heart.  Stamp the castle to patterned papers, cut-out, layer together and adhere.  Stamp the unicorn to cardstock & patterned paper, cut-out and layer together.  Color in the hooves & horn, cover in glitter and adhere to the card front. Color in the windows and door handles on the castle with a black pen, then stamp a heart on the doors.  Add jewels to the rainbow to finish.

Card Challenges Used:
-Papertake Weekly- Bingo card (diecuts, free, glitter)
-The Corrosive challenge #145- inspired by a fairy tale, nursery rhyme or fable

I hope that you've enjoyed my card for "Critters Ever After"!  Be sure to check out what the other designers have created as well!
