Lawnscaping Challenge #107 - Calling All Critters!

Hey everyone!  Back to introduce a new challenge over at Lawnscaping!  You all that Lawn Fawn is known for their critter images!  They are the best at them!!  Well, this challenge is all about those fun critters and seeing what you can make with them!

What I decided to do is make three individual cards featuring a critter or two.  I love these note cards from Lawn Fawn when I can't decide on a background for my card.  These take some of the guess work out of it for you.  I used several critter sets - Critters on the Savanna, Critters in the Burbs, Let's Play, Critters in the Forest, and I also used Chit Chat and Harold's ABC's.  

Here is the three cards together.  And, they are all great to give to a friend or to cheer someone up in your life :)

For the first card, I used the woodgrain note card in Walnut and I die cut a black card stock circle to mimic a hole in a tree truck where another owl would be inside.  Then, I stamped, colored and die cut the owl image from Critters in the Forest, and added him to the lower left of the card.  I die cut two speech bubbles from the Chit Chat die set and customized my sentiments.  I used Harold's ABC's and I embossed my sentiments with Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder.    I added a heart to the top speech bubble for the "owl inside" the tree. 

For my second card, I used Let's Play stamp set and I chose the Freshly Cut Grass note card.  I die cut a piece of white card stock from the Small Stitched Square die set.  I also die cut a piece of green card stock and used the grassy border die from Lawn Fawn to ground my swing set.  I stamped my swing set from Let's Play with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in with my Copic Markers, and did the same thing for my dog and butterfly.  For the sentiment, I die cut one of the Stitched Labels and stamped down my sentiment from the same set with the same Memento ink.

And, for my third card, I used the Mermaid note card, and I used the speech bubble from the Large Journaling Card die set.  I stamped the lion image from Critters in the Savanna as well as the kitty image from Critters in the Burbs and colored both images also with my Copic Markers.  I adhered my speech bubble onto my note card with foam adhesive for dimension, and I used the bubbles from Critters in the sea to use as "thought bubbles".

I liked how all of the cards came together!  Don't forget we have an awesome sponsor for our challenge - Ellen Hutson.  They have kindly offered to give the winner of this challenge a $25 gift certificate to spend at the online store!!  Fun huh!

We can't wait to see what you make with these fun critter images from Lawn Fawn!!  Happy crafting!!  See you soon!
