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.
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.
This week for Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog, they asked me to create a card that includes some of my favorites. So what you see here is NOT a holiday card- but a beachy, warm, sparkly, summer card! For this card, I used one of Impression Obsessions Cover All background stamps, and my Luminarte Dauber- I dabbed the dauber all over the background stamp and then stamped it on some teal paper, which i tore into a strip for my patterned background. Then I stamped Impression Obsessions’s beach stamp with versafine ink on watercolor paper. I used my Luminarte Twinkling H2O’s and painted in this image. I also added some ultrafine crystal glitter with my quickie glue pen for some extra sparkle!
Hope you enjoyed this beachy card during the dreary days of December ;)
Note: Simon Says carries a bunch of different Impression Obsession stamps, but they didn’t have the exact ones seen on this card, so here are the links to them on the Impression Obsession site themselves
- Impression Obsession “Beach” rubberstamp
- Impression Obsession “cover-a-card bubbles” background stamp
Time for another Lawnscaping Challenge! This time we are challenging you to make your own pattern paper- doesn’t that sound fun!? This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn- so be sure to play along for some awesome goodies!! (just a reminder you do not need to use Lawn Fawn stamps on your challenge to participate.)
Here is what i came up with- (don’t google eyes make everything fabulous!??)
For this Lawnscaping Challenge you are to use the photo above as inspiration to create your papercrafting project. The colors inspired mine, the softness of all the photos is what made me use watercolor pencils and the carousel image is what inspired which stamp set to use… I threw in the balloons for good measure! I even shot some detail pics for you, so you can see all my “fussy cutting”. I just learned that term- “fussy cutting” and i love it! Now it is your turn to play along with the challenge! Go ahead and create something- share the link over on the Lawnscaping Challenge blog and you could WIN!!!
