LSC #65 - My Favorite Things

Happy Monday! And to those in the U.S., Happy Labor Day!!  Hope you all are enjoying your extended weekend!!  We are back once again for a new Lawnscaping Challenge!!

For this challenge - we want you to get out your favorite supplies to make a project - whether its pattern paper, markers, stamps ( of course Lawn Fawn) and any supplies you like to use!!  Bust 'em out and get crafty and join us for this new challenge!

For my card - my favorite things to use and to feature is color, texture, and dimension - and I knew that one of my newest sets that I adore from Lawn Fawn would fit right in with all of these things.  So - my favorite supplies to achieve Copics, Distress Inks, different textured card stocks,  and my foam adhesive.

I started out by creating my sky, and I stamped out my clouds in Versa Mark onto my white card base and heated embossed with white embossing power, and then I inked it up with Distress Ink - I used both Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean.  Then, I took the set  "Blue Skies" and stamped the biggest balloon onto a scrap of white card stock, and then took a Chevron pattern stamp I had and added the chevrons for something different on the balloon.  I picked out some Copics in a rainbow colors and colored in my balloon and then I fussy cut the balloon out.  In this case, since I added the chevron pattern, I really couldn't use my die since it leaves a white border.  
I then stamped the other small balloon onto some glittered and textured card stock from DCWV, and also cut them out.  I had some green ribbon that I thought could represent "grass" and adhered it to the bottom of my card base.  I adhered the to smaller balloons straight down onto the card, and the bigger one up on foam adhesive to give that dimension that I love!  Really makes the balloon jump off the card!  I added my greeting "Miss You" from "So Much To Say" and then, for a final touch, I had a cluster bird image from a SU! set that I thought would go great!!

Don't miss your chance to get in on the fun!!  Simon Says Stamp is our sponsor this week!!  ( and they just released a bunch of new product for "Stamptember")
Looking forward to seeing all the entries!!
