S'more the Merrier with Lawn Fawn and Ellen Hutson




Hi friends! I'm so excited to be joining my fellow designers for the Ellen Hutson Summer of Stamping blog hop! Lawn Fawn has teamed up with Ellen Hutson with the adorable new, exclusive set, S'more the Merrier. It is sold as a stamp and die combo, and is available today at the Ellen Hutson store.  Make sure you read through to the end...there's a fun prize and all the blog links, so you can hop along with my talented, crafty friends for loads of inspiration!



Today, I'm sharing a fun trio of projects, using S'more the Merrier and some older Lawn Fawn sets.


For my first card, I used the Foursquare Backdrop Die to cut a frame from Blue Jay cardstock. I cut away the windows, so that I had an open window to work with. Next, I cut a piece of Blue Jay cardstock to A2 size, and created my cloudy, nighttime background by sponging Yeti ink with the Cloudy Stencil in place. I splattered some white acrylic paint, thinned with water, onto my background, die cut it with the Snowy Backdrop Die, and placed it over a white A2 sized cardbase.
Next, I cut my hills, using the Stitched Hillside Borders. The grassy hill was ink blended with Mowed Lawn and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks. The sandy hill is a combination of Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from  S'more the Merrier and Happy Trails (trees) sets and attached to my card, using foam tape for dimension. To complete my card, I heat embossed my sentiment onto Blue Jay cardstock with White Embossing Powder and die cut it with the Everyday Sentiment Banners. I finished my card by stamping the rest of the sentiment in black ink across the bottom. 


Next, I created a fun bag topper for a s'mores mix. I used to make this mix all the time for my girls when they were younger, and they loved it! To make the topper, I cut a Scalloped Rectangle from white cardstock, scored it in the middle and folded in half.  Then, I cut a piece of Blue Jay cardstock and created the sky exactly as I did my first card. I cut a sandy hill using the Stitched Hillside Borders, ink blended it with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks, and attached to the bottom of my topper. I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from  S'more the Merrier set. Next, I die cut my "S'MORE" sentiment, using the Oliver's Stitched ABC's and 123's from white and brown cardstock, layering them just slightly offset, and attached to my topper. I then attached the stamped images with foam tape for dimension. To complete my topper, I heat embossed my sentiment onto Blue Jay cardstock with White Embossing Powder and die cut it with the Everyday Sentiment Banners. I finished it off by stamping the rest of the sentiment in black ink across the bottom, and attached the bag topper to the bag of s'mores with Double-Sided Tape.


For my final project, I created a slimline card to showcase all the critters gathered around the campfire. I first cut a rectangle from Bluejay cardstock with the Large Slimline with Sliders Dies. The background was created the same as my other two projects; however, I did have to cut my panel since the backdrop die is A2 sized. I just pieced it onto my 3 1/2 X 8 1/2" white card base. There will be a visible seam, but we will cover that with stamps, so you won't be able to see it! :) Next, I cut my borders using the Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders Dies. I ink blended the borders with Mowed Lawn, Black Soot, Antiqued Linen, and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks to create a grassy and sandy hill. I attached the grassy border first, then layered the sandy border onto my background. I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from the following sets:
Critters in the Forest (trees)
Happy Trails (camper)
I arranged the cut images onto my card, attaching some with foam tape for dimension. To complete my card, I stamped the sentiment from S'more the Merrier in black ink on the sign and continuing along the bottom of the card.
