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!

Lawnscaping Challenge #89 One Layer

And, so here we are!  The 1st of September!  My, my time is scootin' along fast!  I am back to share with you my card for the latest Lawnscaping Challenge!  We are challenging you to make a one layer creation!!

Before I get into my card, I want to let you all know that we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!  And, just in time for their fun month long Stamptember event!!  Whoo hoo!!  You could be a winner of a $25 dollar gift certificate!

So, I wanted to ink up some of my new stamps of Lawn Fawn's release since I received them last week!  One of those I was dying to ink up was Argyle Backdrops!  This will be one of those I will go to again and again!  I inked it up using Hero Arts Shadow inks in Green Hills and Tide Pool.  Once I was done with my background, I took the large speech bubble die from the Large Stitched Journaling Card die set and die cut in the middle of my card.  Then I stamped the 'You're Awesome' sentiment from So Much to Say stamp set in MFT  Hybrid Black Licorice ink.  I added some finishing touches to my card by stamping a few stars, adding a faux stitching around the speech bubble to make it stand out more, and of course a little shimmer to my stars using my Wink of Stella glitter marker.  I also rounded the corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper using the 3/8" round.

I hope you are able to join us for this fun new challenge!! Can't wait to see the gallery on this one!!  And, be sure to check back on with Lawnscaping on our Facebook page as the Inspiration Team will be there to give you more inspiration along the way!

See you soon!

Lawnscaping FIT August Blog Hop

It is the end of August!!  OH. MY. WORD!  That is craziness isn't it!?  Hello, everyone!  Welcome to another blog hop featuring the Lawnscaping Facebook Inspiration Team aka the FIT team :)

This hop is sponsored by the fabulous Spectrum Noir!!

You should have found your way to me by the uber talented Isha!  I am sure she had something fabulous to feast your eyes on!

For my card - I went a simple route.  I was thinking ombre all the way!

This month we are inspired by Warm Grays and Pinks - so I took a few of the warm gray markers and colored from lightest to darkest on my white card stock.  This is pretty much a one layer card minus my sentiment :)  After getting the grays down I took the Chevron Backdrop stamp set and stamped the thicker of the chevron stamps in Memento Luxe Pigment inks in Rose Bud, Love Letter and Lilac Posies.  For something "extra" to my chevrons I just added a stitched detail with my Memento Tuxedo Black marker.  For my sentiment I stamped the 'Thinking of You' speech bubble from Chit Chat, and inked that up in the Lilac Posies and Love Letter inks again, and then die cut it out using the coordinating die and of course it screamed " I need shimmer" so I used my clear Wink of Stella to do just that!  To finish off the card I rounded the corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper with the 3/8" setting.

It wouldn't take no time at all to whip up a few of these to keep on hand :)  Well, its time for me to send you off on the next girl Lenny!  Be sure to leave comment love along the way for a chance to win some of these awesome Spectrum Noir Markers!!  

See you soon!

PPP Cutting Edge Blog Hop

OK - so I am doing a little catching up on my crafting!  This is the first full day I have had the chance to dedicate to crafting in 3 weeks!  I've missed it...
So, I wanted to participate in the PPP Cutting Edge Blog Hop.  I also did a video on how I made this card coming soon to my blog - once it goes live I will add it to this post.
I recently purchased the Stitched Film Strip Die - it was a die I really didn't have in my die collection - so many possibilities with this cute die.

For my card I inked up a couple of Stamps of Life stamp sets that I had that hasn't seen ink yet - Popcorn2stamp and TV2stamp.  These cute stamps also have coordinating dies to match!  You know those coordinating dies!  I inked up the popcorn bag in Memento Luxe Love Letter, and the 'POP' sentiment in MFT Black Licorice and Memento Dandelion inks.  I die cut a few pieces of True Black CS from PTI from the Stitched Film Strip Die, because I didn't know exactly how my design would turn out.  So - that is when I used the 'News Flash' sentiment and stamped it 3 times within the die cut and then added my popcorn and popcorn bag.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I also used one of the die cuts inside of my card as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!!  And, once the video for this card goes live I will share it as well!! Also, thank you to Paulina and her line up of sponsors for the chance to show off our creations during this blog hop!!

LSC # 88 Texture

So, welcome back to a new challenge over at Lawnscaping!  Time is passing so fast....hard to believe we are in a new challenge, and who doesn't like texture!  Texture is a lot of fun on projects!  You  know what else is fun....having Lawn Fawn as our sponsor!!  YES!!

For texture on my card, I used an embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts. I think this one, because for this project, I used it as a dirt road :)  I embossed my piece with kraft card stock, and then added a bit of Walnut Stain Distress Ink to bring out the embossed pattern a bit more.  Then, I stamped out my images from Happy Trails in MFT Licorice Hybrid Ink, and then colored with my Copics.  To cut the images out, I used the coordinating dies (I hate to fussy cut).  I had a piece of cloud pattern paper in my stash that I thought would be a good fit for this the card is a 5.5 x 5.5 inch square card.  
For my sentiment I used the ones from Love You S'more.  I also stamped that out in the same MFT Hybrid ink.  Then, I just started to adhering all of my pieces to make my little scene.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  
So I hope you are able to join us for yet another fun challenge!! Lawn Fawn will be giving a $25 gift certificate to the lucky winner!!  If that is not incentive, I don't know what is!!  Have fun crafting!
