Happy 3rd Birthday Lawn Fawn!

Welcome to the blog hop!  Today we are wishing Lawn Fawn a Happy Birthday and we'd also like to introduce you to Stamp Fever.






Stamp Fever is a charming little store in Orange, California. We carry all things related to the crafting hobbies of stamping, card-making and paper crafting.  We stock a variety of stamps, papers, inks and supplies. We can also provide special orders for items you find online. We offer weekly stamping classes along with demos and make ‘n takes throughout the month.

Stamp Fever participates in the Southern California Shop Hop! Our design team goes all out to deck our store in theme related finery and we always have a charming Photo Op to add to the memories of your Shop Hop experience.

Stamp Fever is hosting a Lawn Fawn 3rd Birthday celebration! The party is on Saturday March 16 from 1-4. If you are in the area, please stop in for a visit and to share some birthday cake with Kelly and Mike, owners of Lawn Fawn. Kelly will share a special Make ‘n Take featuring one of Lawn Fawn’s newest sets “Summertime Charm”.

There will be prize drawings at the party but we don’t want to exclude our blog readers. We will randomly choose one winner from those who comment at The Stamp Fever blog and one more random winner from comments on the Hop Participant blogs. To increase your chances of winning: Follow the Stamp Fever blog in a reader or by email subscription; sign up for our Newsletter; follow Stamp Fever on Facebook and leave us a comment there. Each winner will receive a Lawn Fawn Stamp set and coordinating Lawn Cuts Die set.

Comment to enter prize drawing until 10:00 pm PDT on Friday March 15. The random drawing will take place at the party. The two winners will be announced Sunday, March 17 on the Stamp Fever blog.

To celebrate Lawn Fawn's birthday, I made two cards.  I love the Fanciful Frame stamp on the first card! I combined it with the greeting and the tiny images from the So Much to Say stamp set. I cut the Happy Birthday stamp so I could stamp the Happy on top of Birthday. After I colored the image with Copic markers, I added glossy accents to the balloons and the party hat to give them some shine.  




On my second card, I challenged myself to use only paper from the Fa La La paper pad for a birthday card. I think it worked out well. :)  I also used the Say Cheese stamp set. This is one of my favorite Lawn Fawn sets.
