Lawn Fawn Sneak Peek #4: Hello Friend

Good Evening!!!

In the spirit of moving, I’ve created a flat card with our new address on the back made out of upcycled box! I’ll be making a bunch of these for family and friends. To make these, I dug out my Tombow markers (they were in the second to last box I checked) and colored the stamp directly. All you do is ink up your stamp with the makers, huff to moisten the ink, and stamp! Markers are a fast way to make your stamped images pop. This new Lawn Fawn stamp set, Hello Friend, will be available for purchase soon!

Also, you have 2 more days to enter in my $100 Two Peas Gift Certificate Giveaway!!!

Guest Blogging: Lisa Spangler

Meet today’s Guest Blogger, Lisa Spangler who blogs over at sideoats and scribbles! You may know her as one of the talented designers for Hero Arts. Lisa is my all-time favorite crafter! She’s talented, down-to-earth, and just a well-spring of knowledge. It is quite the honor to have her creating on iheartart today.


Hi everyone, Lisa here! I am so honored that Tiff asked me to be a guest blogger — yay! I just love her happy, fun style — just like Tiff herself!

I wanted to share something that would be fun to make for the holidays, but didn’t take much time or supplies — because we all run out of time during the holidays, right? Right! AND, I wanted the project to use something that Tiff and I both LOVE: washi tape! (Also known as Japanese masking tape.)

I thought and thought (and thought some more!) — and then it hit me! One of the things I just love about washi tape is how it’s transparent and lets light shine through — making it perfect for a candle holder! Yeah!

This project is easy as 1-2-3! Just gather up some tape and a recycled glass jar…

Then add the tape to the jar in whatever pattern you like. I decided to go with stripes for this one. Here’s a little tip if you want to do the stripe thing: use a piece of twine to go around the jar and measure it. Then tear your tape to that length — much easier than trying to put it around the jar while it’s still on the roll!

Finally, add a votive candle, light it, and watch the magic!

Supplies: I don’t know where that jar came from — I save lotsa jars and use them for crafty projects or just to hold flowers from the garden. The red tapes are from Itoya in Tokyo. The other tapes are a score from Anthropologie. And! You can also find washi tape over at Torendi where Tiff is on the DT! Woo hoo!

Thanks for having me today, Tiff! Sure hope the move is going great. Mega hugs!

Huge hugs to all,


Lawn Fawn Sneak Peek #3: Fly Free

Good Evening folks!!! It’s time for another Lawn Fawn sneak peek and this time I’ve used the soon-to-be released stamp set, Fly Free! I created my floral background using Petite Florals and Spun Sugar Distress ink. Then, I tied a bow around an acetate card base (4 1/2 x 6 1/4) and adhere the floral panel matted with pink cardstock. On the inside, I adhered a spring green scrap cardstock. I adore this sweet stamp set and am tempted to get that little birdie and the saying tattooed on me somewhere 😉

Materials: Lawn Fawn Stamp Set (Fly Free & Petite Florals), Acetate card base (Papertrey Ink), Green Ribbon (Making Memories), Spun Sugar (Distress Ink), Foam Dots, Tuxedo Black Ink (memento), White cardstock (Neenah)


Guest Blogging: Laurel Beard

Meet today’s Guest Blogger, Laurel Beard! She’s a spit-fire, a fellow Military wife, and a wonderful person to boot! You may know her from her blog, Paper Crafts by Laurel. She’s such a positive encouraging friend to have and I’m honored to have her blogging for me today.

Wow! Can I say how excited I was to be asked to guest blog for Tiffany? I mean come on, she is Tiffany! HELLO!!!  You can’t get much better than that!!!!!  I wanted to make something very clean and simple for her and her family…. Something I thought her kids would like. So I whipped out my Lawn Fawn’s sets. Did a little masking, copic coloring and tim holtz distress ink applying and came up with this!

Tiffany, I hope you made it to your new home safe and sound and I hope you are feeling better! If you all didn’t know, the ENTIRE family got the flu while traveling! Ugh…… Guess that made for a memorable trip!


Lawn Fawn Sneak Peek #2: My Silly Valentine AND an update!

Good Evening friends! Here is a sneak peek of a soon-to-be released stamp set, My Silly Valentine, by Lawn Fawn! My studio is still packed in 20 or more boxes (eeeeps) and I created this card using items that I had in my craft tote! I planned on making something more elaborate, but every time I began a project it ended in frustration because I couldn’t find that one thing I needed. I hope to be fully unpacked by the end of this week.

Enough about me… Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn Blog and the rest of the Design Team for more sneak peeks:

Materials: Lawn Fawn Stamps (My Silly Valentine), Old School Designer Papers (Pink Paislee), Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento), Mini Clothespins (Hero Arts)

and now for the grand finale of Moving Part 2: From New Mexico to Washington!
