Hello everyone, and happy Saturday!  If you are here today reading this, I appreciate you stopping by my blog!  I wanted to share with all of you quickly a card I put together pretty fast using the Simon Says Stamp July 2104 Card Kit.  It is a really great kit this month, and if you haven't picked it up yet, and you've been eyeing it, better grab it before its gone!  Better yet - just subscribe to the card kit every month, and it will be sent to you automatically!

Below is the video on how I put this card together!  So, be sure to head over to my You Tube Channel and watch!  I'd love for you to!

Q & A - I answer your questions (Video)

Hello all!! I am popping in really quickly today to share my video of my answers to the questions I received a few days ago. If you don't know what I am referring to I will link below the first video I posted asking if anyone would like for me to do a Q & A video to get to know me a little bit more, and I did receive a few questions, so I wanted to answer those questions today. This is not my usual Inspiration Sunday video, but I will have a new one next week. So - if you'd like to hear my answers to some of the crafty questions I received, I invite you to watch!! And, on a RANDOM side note - I am not really into soccer, but TEAM USA is playing as I write this - go GO USA!!

And, here are my answers :)

See you soon!!

LSC #84 Stars and Stripes

Hello Lawnscaping fans!  It is time for a new challenge!  Summer is on the horizon!  Can you believe it!  So, for our challenge this time it is about those versatile Stars and Stripes!  And, guess who is our our sponsor - Lawn Fawn!  YAY!!

For my card - I kept it pretty simple!  I used some white embossing paste by Wendi Vecchi and I added some gold glitter and incorporated the glitter in my embossing paste.  Then, I took my star stencil that I purchased from Simon Says Stamp, and applied it to one half of my piece of Tim Holtz water color card stock, and let it dry. It didn't take long at all for it to dry.  Then, I adhered to the other half of the card stock some papers from Lawn Fawn's Into The Woods 6x6 pad.  Then, I took one of my  Lawn Fawn's Star Stackables dies and die cut a star from my panel.  Then, I heat embossed in gold right on my card base my "You Shine" sentiment from the set Lucky Stars also from Lawn Fawn. Then, I adhered my main panel so my sentiment would be right in the middle of my star die cut.  Super fun and super simple :)

Hope you are able to join us for another new fun challenge!!
See you soon!

LSC # 83 Embossing

Happy Monday :) Is it time for a new challenge already over at Lawnscaping ? - YEP!
For this new challenge - it is all about embossing!!  Whether you used embossing powder to heat emboss, or an embossing folder to dry emboss or BOTH, we want to see your projects!

For my card - I inked up the cute set "Here's the Scoop" - it is a fun summery type set from Lawn Fawn that you can get at Simon Says Stamp who is our awesome sponsor!!

I stamped and heat embossed my ice cream "tops" in various colors of embossing powders - all from Stampin' Up! because that is the only brand of colored embossing powders I own - but there are many colors from WOW! that you can get too! After I embossed all of the ice cream - I "fussy" cut them out and set them aside.  I die cut a piece of white card stock using the Stitched Journaling Card Die, and then I stamped my cones using Toffee Crunch Memento Ink, and then I added a bit of color using my E11 Copic Marker.  I also stamped the ice cream scoop image in Gray Flannel Memento Ink and colored it using C3 Copic Marker and then I also "fussy" cut it out. I adhered all of my images to my die cut white panel, and two of the ice cream images I popped up using dimensional adhesive.  I stamped the sentiment "Here's the Scoop" in Onyx Black VersaFine Ink.  I adhered that panel to a blue patterned paper from the Hello, Sunshine 6x6 paper pack from Lawn Fawn, and adhered all of that to my white A2 size card base.

Hope you are able to join us for this fun new challenge!!  

See you soon!
