Lawn Fawn: Claw-some Party Mashup

I was pretty excited to get my crafty mitts on  the You’re Claw-some set from Lawn Fawn when it was released. I have yet to use it as is, however. I keep mashing it up with other Lawn Fawn sets. Some more successful than others. I made this card, filling the claw machine with bananas and a cheeky monkey dangling from the claw. I made another card that did not get shared, filling the claw machine with bones and tennis balls and a slinky weiner dog dangling from the claw. I tried making that a shaker card, but it did not work well. But I will attempt it again! It has not bested me yet!

For this card, I filled the claw machine with Halloween tricks and treats and included a couple of adorably costumed kids (from the new Costume Party set) trying to get that prized unicorn softie.

Trick or treat / Clawsome Costume Party

The claw machine comes filled with teddy bears, so in order to fill it with other things, you have to mask those bears. Pro-tip: It helps to stamp the image on the sticky side of a post-it note, so that you can turn it over and fit it inside the stamp (AFTER you ink it! I cannot tell you how many times I’ve almost inked the stamp with the mask inside. What a mess!). Then, I filled the machine with chocolate bars and candy (treats), toilet paper (tricks), and a couple of other themed items. I stamped the unicorn so that it would be “picked up” by the claw. Will it make it to the chute?? Those kids seem pretty confident!

I also stamped the costumed kids and then colored everything with Copic markers. I die-cut all the images and set them aside while I blended some Oxide Ink in Spiced Marmalade onto a piece of card stock that I die-cut with a stitched rectangle (4×5.25″). Then I adhered the pieces to the card base, popping up the kids with some foam tape. Oh, I also stamped, colored, and die-cut an extra chocolate bar (guys, I’m low-carbing it these days, can you tell? I’m obsessed with chocolate!) and a pumpkin treat bag (bucket?). I took a craft knife and cut a slit around our unicorn’s hand and at the top of the dispenser so that I could slide in the bucket and candy bar, respectively. Finally, I stamped a sentiment and added a few black enamel dots.

And there you have it – a super fun mashup of two awesome stamp sets! Thanks for joining me today and have a great week!
