Lawn Fawn: Happy Harvest

Hello there!
I know lots of you out there are sending your children off to school this week (and last), well in the south at least.  That means fall is right around the corner!  Living in Florida means summer kind of drags out to October, so fall here is just a few weeks.  But it truly is fantastic!  Warm days, cooler nights and no humidity.
Anyhow, fall means fall projects.  Like Halloween, back to school, Thanksgiving, celebrating the harvest!

Lawn Fawn is in the middle of August Inspiration Week, and everything has been fall themed.  Today is no different, as I am showcasing a stamp/die set called Happy Harvest.  Again don't hate me, I'm seriously addicted to this pillow box die, but I made a few pillow boxes using the Happy Harvest stamp set.
Make sure you head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog, to see some fabulous projects by the design team, and for a chance to win this set!!


There are so many fun images in this set.  I couldn't decide on one project so I made two.  Both pillow boxes were created using Lawn Fawn pattern paper.  Then embellished using the Happy Harvest stamp/die set.  What is great about coordinating stamps/dies, is that you can stamp a bunch of images onto a sheet of paper, place the dies over the images, and diecut them all at once!  This really makes making cards. gifts, 3d items, that much easier.  The scarecrow was paper pieced, if you are wondering how that was created.  Paper piecing is when you stamp the image onto pattern paper, cut out the selected part, and adhere it to the image or diecut.  Its like customizing a paper doll.  Its a fun technique for sure!  The sunflowers and pumpkin were all colored in using Copic markers.  I added dimension to both projects by using 3d foam tape to lift up the images.
