Welcome into another day of the May Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!
Today the LF Design Team is showcasing a couple of brand new stand alone die sets that are absolutely incredible, super versatile and so much fun to use... the Stitched Party Banners and Louie's ABC's & 123's dies.
I love these bigger sized dies! Not only are they terrific for scrapbook page layouts and to use individually on cards but you can make super fun home and party decor with the banners and large style alphabet!
I used the smaller of the two banners for this felt banner for my daughter's room. I die cut lots and lots and lots of banners from MFT Felt and then die cut hearts from the Stitched Party Banners die set and my daughter's name from the Louie's ABC's & 123's set and machine stitched the letters and hearts to the banners.
I hung the double row of banners across the top of her bed using some baker's twine and clear thumb tacks.
The most time consuming part of this project was manually cranking each of these banners through my Sizzix Big Shot Machine.
Dear Santa, I need this (Sizzix Vagabond Machine) for Christmas! (hint, hint! Heck, at this great price and free shipping on Amazon....maybe I'll just get one for myself!)
While I was playing with die cutting the awesome MFT Felt, I thought it might be fun to make one of the felt banners into a card! I incorporated the Spring Showers Lawn Cuts Dies (clouds and sunshine), Float My Boat Lawn Cuts Die (seagulls) and Hearts Lawn Cuts die on the banner to create a fun beachy scene complete with a stamped and embossed greeting from Life Is Good Stamp Set. I matted the whole thing on some patterned paper die cut with the Large Stitched Journaling Card die (I just cut off the excess at the top of the card).
A scattering of sequins and metallic dots scattered throughout the design and some twine knotted through the banner complete this sweet scene.
Finally, I shared this project on Sunday with the Chit Chat Stamp Set blog post but wanted to mention it again here today as I used the Louie's ABC's & 123's Lawn Cuts alphabet die to cut the monogram for this gift card set. I used the Crop-a-dile to create the hole in the top of the monogram to tie it to the gift.
So many ways to use these fun, new, versatile products!
