I’m BACK!! I took a little hiatus from doing the Lawnscaping Challenges, while i was packing, moving and unpacking. But, I am back- and what better challenge to ease myself back into it then a CAS challenge! (Clean and Simple) I have to apologize for the picture, it isn’t the greatest. Still figuring out where/how the best way to take pics in my new place.
My crafty stuff IS unpacked… although I don’t really have a flow of working yet, and not sure where everything is is where it will stay- but for now I DO know where my Lawn Fawn stamps are, my washi tape and my watercolor pencils, so Voila! I whipped up this fun card! Hope you will play along with the challenge with us ;) It’s easy! And all the details are here.
We are sponsored this week by Lawn Fawn, and the winner will get to pick a stamp of their choice!
Here is a detail shot of the letters, I watercolored them then added ultrafine glitter with my quickie glue pen. I then cut them out. I haven’t splurged for the lawn cuts for this set yet, so below i linked the lawn cuts AND my fave scissors and x-acto that i used on this card.
Good morning everyone! Today I’m thrilled to be featured on the Lawn Fawn blog. I shared with them this fun nautical thank you card. I have been living in Providence for almost a month, and even though i LOVE it… i also miss Cape Cod a bit… so I decided to do a nautical card. I thought of this idea when talking to one of my besties Melyssa about Sea Monkey’s and how odd they are – that made me think of capturing seahorses in a jar… normal right? I love this fun card that came to life… my first creation in my *new* space! :)
Upcoming Class on the cape details here
Ok… onto the fun stuff- the CARD ;) I took a bunch of detail shots because i wanted you to get a sense of the dimension and the glitter and the glossy accented bubbles :) Now it’s time for me to design my moving cards!
Today I have a special blog post for you-
- a baby card (very rare from me) and
- a congratulations to my friend Laurel who recently had lily and after spending a little extra, needed time in the hospital is strong enough to be home
Some of my stampy friends have put together a blog hop in honor of this special occasion, be sure to visit Jennifer McD. next! To see the full list of all the hop participants hop on over to Chrissie’s blog.
Adding texture onto a card can be done in a variety of ways. I look forward to seeing the creative ways you will add texture on the card you are going to create and enter our latest challenge over on the Lawnscaping Challenge blog ;) Simon Says is sponsoring this challenge, you could win a gift certificate!
For my card I added texture using: an edge distresser, liquid applique, ultrafine glitter, layers of paper, googly eyes, twine and foam tape. Also I used a Versafine Smokey Gray ink pad to stamp the bunny, it’s not as harsh as black- too give a softer look on this animal since it is white.
Hope you enjoy this Easter card I created. Remember Easter is early this year, in March.
Hello! One thing I find that I enjoy in certain stamp companies is how you can put together cute little scenes using all of their stamps, or even better stamps from just one set. Lawn Fawn sets are *perfect* for this! Using one of their new CHA sets I created this fun little spring scene. I took a bunch of detail shots to show off all my fussy cutting and so you can see all the dimension. Can’t wait to see what scenes you come up with for this latest Lawnscaping Challenge! You could win some loot from Lawn Fawn… how fabulous is that!?
I absolutely LOVE the warm colors of Valentine’s Day. The pinks, and reds and creams- so soft. I had a lot of fun making this card for the Lawnscaping Challenge. Wonder who I will send it to… ;) Can’t wait to see all the Valentines you create and submit for our challenge! See below for some detail shots so you can see the glitter and dimension on this card.
Today the very talented julie ebersole is celebrating a BIG birthday…… 30 ;) ok, ok…. maybe not thirty, but its a BIG one ;)
I’m happy today to be part of her birthday blog hop, and to be able to wish her a very happy birthday! I met Julie many years ago through my time with a muse (sharing an old pic above) and have been inspired by her ever since.
Cheers to you miss julie! Enjoy a martini (or 2 .. heck even 3!)
Be sure to continue on this hop by visiting Amber’s blog next!
For the next Lawnscaping Challenge we have for you some Winter Wonderland cards. I’m not a huge fan of winter, shocker i know… but i DO love my blues and snowflakes! I thought the fox from critters in the woods was perfect for a snowy scene. Be sure to check out the other girls creations over on the blog, and share with us your winter wonderland creation so you can have a chance of winning some Lawn Fawn goodies! I decided to add some liquid applique to create the snowy scene- love puffing it up with a heat tool!
Happy New Year everyone! I have a blog post coming soon on my thoughts of 2012 and my one little word for 2013- but for now I want to wish a Happy 2nd Birthday to Lawnscaping Challenge Blog! We decided to celebrate with a party theme challenge- how fun is that!? :) Create a party themed card, tag, layout- whatever you would like and link a pic of it over on the challenge blog! This month is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and you could win a gift certificate from them! Can’t wait to see what everyone submits!
This week for Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog, they asked me to create a card focused on Merry Christmas! So technically they forced me to do a holiday card ;) It’s ok. I had another challenge to do with some crafty girls, so I was able to get both challenges done with this card.
