I stamp on everything! ( because I freely admit that I am a terrible wrapper, so I figure it’s perfectly OK to make it up with lots of embellishments…lol)
So here’s some ideas for the wrapping paper challenged…
1. Stamp all over your paper ( the penguins) and I colored a few….
2. Stamp within a larger image ( the tree and gingerbread man)
This was really quick to do…I stamped multiple images at a time. The tree ornaments are stamped directly onto my wrapped package, the gingerbread is done on a separate piece of paper, cut out and taped onto the package.
3 . Stamp on ribbon ( Mine is stamped in white on red ribbon, using my Misti, because I needed to go over two or three times to get a really white image.) Don’t have ribbon? No worries… the white ‘ribbon’ is just a strip of paper, stamped and then edged with some glitzy trim..
The images I used: All Lawn Fawn stamps
Ribbon: For you….Love You A Latte, Star….Joy to the Woods
Tree: Ornaments, Bow…..Joy to the Woods, Heart…..Sweet Christmas, Pine….Deck the Halls
Gingerbread:Candy Cane,Lollies, Peppermint candy…Sweet Christmas
Penguins: Winter Penguin, Toboggan Together
Stamping in air dry clay is super easy and fun. Roll out some air dry clay ( I bought mine at Michaels) with a rolling pin or glass bottle, stamp into it, let dry overnight, sand and paint! That’s it! ( And the sanding is optional… I just use a nail file to take out imperfections). Mine are rolled out to about 1/4″ thick and I used a variety of paint, ink and glitter on them. Wrap up your leftover clay with some Saran Wrap and store it in a ziplock and it will last a really long time. I also cut some circles out of the clay and stamped in those. They make great Tags to use on Holiday presents. I used Lawn Fawn’s Toboggan Together deer and penguin on the finished ones. I also made the wreath that the deer is sitting on out of Shrinky Dink! ( but that’s a whole other post..lol)
For Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 13….Happy Little Critters….
While Memorydex cards are the super fun thing to create right now, I still love creating Pocket letters and it was a great way to get so many critters on one page…
I first cut out the boat, and then started adding in critters….In no particular order..

Hope I didn’t leave anyone out!
A few years ago, I did something similar as a 6 x6 card
And in that one I was able to get the elephants in!
For the #lawnfawnatics challenge, I used the Stitched Hillside border and added in….
Penguin, trees, teeny snowflake,’Merry Christmas’ and Trimmed Reindeer antlers from Toboggan Together
Wreath & bow mini
Fox from Joy to the Woods
Racoon from Holiday Party Animal
And a drawn /digital cut lamppost and sign
Finished it all off with an embossed background and gave all the critters red noses
( because everyone wants to be the best..Rudolph!)
I used lots of Lawn Fawn stamps on this one….
Raccoon/pilgrim hat….Holiday Party Animal
Fox…..Jump for Joy
Scarf….trim from Warm Winter Wishes
Tree Stump….Mom & Me
Socks….Loads of Fun
Pants….trim from Gnome Sweet Gnome
Good thing my LF stamps are so organized and easy to find! Everything colored with copics and sentiment printed from computer…
