Lawnscaping Fall Blog Hop

**Since I need to keep this post at the top of my page - I just wanted to say Happy World Cardmaking Day (10-6-12) to all of the wonderful card makers out there!!**


Hi blog hoppers!! Welcome to Lawnscaping's Fall Blog Hop!  You've made your way to me by the lovely and uber talented Joe Shien Shien. Today we want to inspire all of you with the colors of fall or what represents Fall to you!  Being able to combine Fall and Lawn Fawn stamps is so super fun to me!  Lawn Fawn inspires me to take my stamps and creativity as far as it can go!!  Today - I am happy to be apart of such a wonderful group of talented crafters for today's hop!!  For my card - I used Lawn Fawn stamp sets - Critters in the BurbsGnome Sweet GnomeHats Off to YouCritters on the Farm and So Thankful for You.







I did a lot of paper piecing for my card.  I used pattern papers from Autumn Spice from Lily Bee Design, and an AC 6 x6 paper pad I purchased at Michael's Craft Store.  My card base is an A2 sized card base and its made from Gina K. Designs called Soft Sand.  My card panel is a piece of Vintage Creme Card stock from PTI.  I used the In the Meadow Die from PaperTrey Ink to create my hill tops.  I am not talented enough I feel to create these free hand - that is why I love these dies so much.  Then, I stamped out all my pieces cut them out, and paper - pieced  the trees, the hat for "pilgrim gnome" and my pumpkins.  I added more color to my "pilgrim gnome" by using my Copics.  I added some Star Dust stickles to my pumpkins and leaves for that extra "something".  

Here is a closer look at that glitter goodness - 




I can't express to you how much I enjoyed making a card for this blog hop!!  I love all things Lawn Fawn and I hold all of my collections from stamps to paper from them dear to my heart!  

Well - its time send you on your way to the awesome and sweet Rachel!!  Be sure to leave comments along the way - there just be a chance to win something wonderful!!  

Thanks for visiting!!!

  28. Fantastic paper-piecing -- the flower pattern in the treetop really work well. I mean, I don't suppose you mean for it to suggest that there are flowers in the tree, but since the paper has pretty fall colors, it works.

  39. Hi Kari. I think your scene is just adorable and I think your pilgrim gnome is fantastic! He looks awesome in the middle of your fall scene. You did such a great job on all of your fussy cutting. I think your card is just awesome and I can't wait to get a chance to play with the few sets of LawnFawn that I have. You have all made some of the best seasonal cards and projects that I have seen and I have to tell you that I have so enjoyed this whole blog hop even if it has taken my two days to get to your blog. lol...:O) Worth every hop. Have a super weekend. Hugs, Lisa G
