LSC #92 Halloween Theme or Color combo

Hi my friends!  So, we are entering into a new challenge, and right around the corner is Halloween. Now I will be completely honest and say that I am really not into Halloween.  Never really was that big into it as a kid either.  But, I did have some fun putting together this card for this challenge.


I used the cute set Spooktacular.  I also used So Thankful for one of the smaller pumpkins.  I started out by die cutting a piece of white card stock and a piece of vellum from one of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies, and then I inked up my background with distress inks - Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and Chipped Sapphire.  Once I was satisfied with my background, I started working on my images.  I stamped the kitty cat, pumpkin, the moon and a bat all from the Spooktacular set.  I colored all of my images with Copic Markers except for the bat - I just used the die to cut him out of black card stock from my stash.  Once I was done with all of my images, I cut out a border for them to sit on out of black card stock.  I adhered my vellum onto my inked back ground to "mute" it just a bit, and then started adding all of my images on top.  I stamped my sentiment out in Staz On ink as this is a good ink for vellum.  You can't tell in the picture, but I added some shimmer using my Wink of Stella clear brush marker on the witches hat, the small pumpkin and the moon.  
Then, I started to put my card together.  I die cut some pattern paper from a Doodlebug 6x6 pad, and added that straight down onto my Smoke Card base, and then I put foam adhesive on my main panel and adhered it to my pattern paper.  Turned out cute I think, and I feel I can still give this card to a friend! 

Hope you like this card and it inspires you to join us for this newest challenge over at Lawnscaping Challenges.  Our awesome sponsor is the fabulous Lawn Fawn!!! Link up your project for the chance at a $25 gift certificate!

See you soon!

LSC #91 Patterned Paper

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the first challenge for October 2014 for Lawnscaping! We are focusing on using pattern papers and there lots of great ones out right now!  Of course, I used the newest ones from Lawn Fawn and you can pick these papers up along with so many other awesome finds from our sponsor Simon Says Stamp!  They are wonderful to give the winner a $25 gift certificate to their store!




Here is my card that I made and I didn't do any stamping!  I used pattern papers from LF's Snow Day 6x6 paper pad.  To create the layers, I used the Large Stitched Rectangles Stackables dies - I love these!!  I am obsessed frame dies right now!  

For my sentiment - I used this adorable "Merry" wood veneer - and these are exclusive to Simon Says Stamp.  They are in Kristina Werner's handwriting!  LOVE! To add a bit of something extra ( not that it really needs it) and added some of Wink of Stella glitter pen :)





I hope this has inspired you to get out your pattern papers!  I know for me - I need to use them more often instead of hanging on to them!  We buy these things to use!! I have to keep reminding myself of that sometimes - LOL!  Thank you all for stopping by today!!  Hope you have a great week!!

September Lawnscaping FIT Team Blog Hop

Hello everyone! So hard to believe we are winding down September, and heading into October! Crazy!! Today, the Lawnscaping Facebook Inspiration Team is bringing you more inspiration, and we are inspired by Yellows and Browns.  This awesome hop is sponsored by the awesome Spectrum Noir.  You should have found your way to me by the awesome Isha!




For my card, I pulled out some papers from Lawn Fawn's Sweater Weather 6x6 pad.  One of my favorites for sure!  I die cut both pieces of pattern papers I chose from the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies!  Love these too!  They make a card quick and simple!  I stamped out my sunflower from Our Friendship Grows, and colored my flowers using some yellows and browns, with a 'dash' of orange to bring it all together.  Once I was done coloring my flower, I die cut it out using the coordinating die, and added some shimmer using the Wink of Stella brush marker ( I am addicted). Then, I stamped out my sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, and cut it down to fit on my card and popped it up with foam adhesive!  
OK - time to send you off to Lenny! I am sure she has something awesome for you to feast your eyes on!!  

Be sure to leave comments for your chance to win some awesome Spectrum Noir Markers!

See you soon!

LSC #90 Critters Galore

Helllloooo :)  Wow!  And, here we find our selves with a new challenge for Lawnscaping!  Crazy, huh?!  Well, I know you all are gonna love the new challenge...we are getting Critter Crazy.  Lawn Fawn is known for their Critters, because they are just so darn cute!  So, it is time to grab your Critters sets and make a fun project with them.

So, here is my card :)


I used three Lawn Fawn sets for this card.  I used '#Awesome', 'Critters in the Savannah' and 'Gnome Sweet Gnome'.  I first die cut the frame from '#Awesome' from some PTI Stampers Select White CS, and stamped giraffe and lion with some Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I, then stamped the images again onto some masking paper, and masked them off, so I could add a blue sky using some Broken China Distress Ink.  Once I was done inking, I removed my masks, and then colored them in with some Copics.  I, then added the two birdies from 'Gnome Sweet Gnome' and also colored them in with Copics.  I used the same Red Copic Marker to color in one of the birdies to color my outside frame.  Then, I die cut a piece of patterned paper from an older Simple Stories paper pad, and some Island Blue CS using the scallop frames from Mama Elephant. Before adhering everything together I stamped my sentiment from '#Awesome' on my Island Blue piece in Versa Fine Onyx Black ink.  I then adhered my frame onto my pattern paper, added some foam adhesive on the back, and then adhered that piece onto the Island Blue piece, and then onto my white card base.





This fun challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn.  They are far my favorite stamp company!  So - be sure to link up your project for your chance to win for a $25 GC!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
-Kari
