Lawnscaping Monthly Blog Hop | June 2015

Hello and welcome to another Monthly Blog Hop for Lawnscaping Challenges!  This month we are inspired by PURPLE!  I think you will all love the projects on this hop!  So much pretty purple to feast your eyes on!  You should have made your way to me by ISHA!  I have no doubt she had something fun and fabulous!  



For my card I kept things simple.  I used the hexagon background from Interlocking Backdrops which is one of my favorite background sets from Lawn Fawn!  I used the new ink in Juice Box - such a perfect purple shade.  I stamped this background onto my white 5x5 card base. I had a piece of white card stock left over and created an ombre looked with 3 shades of purple Copic Markers, and then die cut several die cuts from the THANKS die - once using the ombre background, and then 5 more times just with white card stock, and I glued all of them together to create a faux chipboard piece.  I love doing this with my sentiment die cuts.



Then, I just die cut a star using one of the Puffy Star Stackables - and adhered it to my card base with foam adhesive, and then applied liquid glue to the back of my sentiment piece and adhered that to the star.  Check out the dimension below!


So fun!  To finish things off I added some shimmer using my Wink of Stella Clear brush pen.  Before I send you off to the next stop - I wanted to be sure to thank our wonderful sponsor The Ink Road ! Be sure to leave comments along with the way to have a chance to win a gift certificate from The Ink Road.


And, finally - Sadly, this post marks my final post for the Lawnscaping Facebook Inspiration Team.  I was honored to have served on this team for over 2 years - It was so fun bringing you inspiration for each challenge every two weeks, and for the blog hops.  I will miss working with such sweet ladies and not to mention talented!  Thanks so much for visiting my blog today - I hope you continue to come back every once in a while :)  OK - enough with the mushy stuff - off to my girl Lenny's blog.  

Happy Crafting ( and blog hopping)
Kari
