What I've been waiting for!

Happy Weekend everyone!  Today, I wanted to share with you one of my submissions for the Lawnscaping DT Call Challenge!  I have been participating in this challenge for a long while.  I have been a lover of Lawn Fawn stamps when they pretty much launched, and I haven't looked back.  So - when my discovery of Lawn Fawn stamps spilled over into the Lawnscaping challenge, it was a love of two worlds for me!  I try so very hard to enter into every challenge there is, and I have had the opportunity and blessing to be able to Guest Design for them twice!  I've even had the opportunity to do a tutorial for them on You Tube!  So, needless to say - I love this challenge blog!  I've submitted four cards total, and here is a look at all four.

Card # 1

This card represents how I feel about them having a DT call ( and hopefully having this feeling if I am lucky enough to be chosen, if I am being honest) *grin*

I made a 5 1/2 square card and used papers from Lawn Fawn's 6x6 pad Pink Lemonade.  Then, I used the cute set SummerTime Charm, and stamped the "star of the show" of that set the cute little jar onto a piece of vellum card stock.  I, strategically stamped the top of the jar to look like the jar didn't have it's lid, and then stamped the top of the jar onto a piece of card stock from Bazzill called Circus Peanuts.  I, then wanted a "bursting" look to my jar, and I went through my other Lawn Fawn sets and found a bursting image from Say Cheese, Too, and I also strategically stamped that image, leaving out the star.  I stamped the label for the jar on another piece of pattern paper from the same 6x6 pad, and used the "Congrats" sentiment from So Much to Say, and adhered that to my jar which gave me a great place to put adhesive to my vellum stamped jar to adhere to my card.  I adhered my lid with foam adhesive for dimension, because after all it is " bursting" from the jar.  For my sentiment - I custom stamped with Harold's ABC's.  To finish off my card, I added some enamel dots.

Card # 2

For this card - I used the new Puffy Star Stackables.  I made this card specifically for a special graduate.  I also used the "cap" images from both So Much to Say, and Hats Off To You.  Also featured is the new set Lucky Stars.  I did a little bit of Copic coloring on the caps, and to highlight the stars, I did some faux stitching.

Card #3

For this 5 1/2 square card, I used Summertime Charm again, because who can resist this jar!  I like finding new things to put in it as well.  I used Sweet Christmas for one of the candy pieces, and stamped it in a multitude of colors using various Memento Inks.  I even did some masking too on the candy.  I also die cut using the banner from the Blue Skies Lawn Cuts twice to extend the length of the banner just a bit, and glue the two die cuts together.  For the sentiment, I combined from Sweet Christmas, and So Much to Say for a custom sentiment " Have a sweet Birthday".

Card #4

And, for my fourth card here, I wanted to do a clean and simple project.  My card base is an A2 size standard card, and I started out masking off the card base with some Inkadinkado masking sheets except where I wanted to emboss and do some emboss resist with some Distress Inks.  I, first stamped my triangle border from Sharp BackDrops with Versa Mark Ink to heat emboss with white embossing powder, and then the fun part - I chose three of my favorite colors of Distress Inks - Picked RaspberrySalty Ocean, and Peacock Feathers, and let the magic happen of the emboss resist.  To add additional interest to my card, I paper pierced down the sides of my embossed colored strip.  For my sentiment, I first die cut using some wood-grain card stock, and from SSS, and the folder banner die also from SSS, and inked up from Grand Greetings, the "Thanks" from "Thanks So Much", and adhered it to my card.

I wanted to do one more project different from cards to show that I am able to do a variety of crafts besides cards, and I plan on doing that this week.

Get your Lawn Fawn goodies out, and submit to this fun challenge blog!  Have a great weekend!!
