Lawnscaping FIT Team October Blog Hop

Helllllooo! Welcome to another Blog Hop with the Lawnscaping FIT Team!!  For this month's hop we are inspired by Reds and Greens!!

Before I get into details about my card, I wanted to give a shout out to Spectrum Noir for being our awesome sponsor!!  You should have found your way to me by awesome Isha!!  I am sure she had something awesome to feast your eyes on!











For my card, I wanted to mixed the old with the new!  I used Ornate Ornaments for the focal point, and I used Joy to the Woods ( both Lawn Fawn sets, of course) for my sentiment.  I die cut a piece of white stampers select card stock and die cut it using the femme frames from Mama Elephant.  I stamped out my branches in both Pear Tart and Cottage Ivy Memento Inks. I think stamped the ornaments directly onto my panel in Black Memento Ink, and then stamped them again on another piece of white card stock to color them in with my markers.  Once I was done with my coloring, I fussy cut them out using my Fiskars detail scissors and then adhered them on with foam adhesive to give them dimension.  I stamped out my 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from Joy to the Woods in Versa Fine Onyx Black, this is my favorite black ink for sentiments.  Then, for my card base, I cut another piece of white card stock down to make an A2 top folding card, and I die cut a piece of pattern paper from the Snow Day 6x6 pad using the largest stitched rectangle stackables die.  I loved the musical notes paper for contrast with the ornaments. I adhered my pattern paper down to my card base, and popped up my main panel with foam adhesive.  For a final touch, I added some shimmer with what else the Wink of Stella Glitter pen in Clear.  I hope you like this card, and it gives you some inspiration for your holiday cards this year!!  
It's time to send you off to the talented Lenny!!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!!!  

See you soon!!

  11. LF and SN = a wonderful pairing - and you've certainly made this clearly evident in your sweet card! Your tree ornaments are lovely! don't have any SN markers or pencils yet, but I'm "this close" to investing; after seeing your card, though, I think 'going shopping' is in order...
