Lawnscaping #98 - Create a Background

 Good morning! Did you have a nice weekend? We took down our Christmas tree and all of our Christmas decorations this weekend. The living room looks so bare without the Christmas tree! I'll get used to it eventually! 

Well, it's that time again - a new Lawnscaping Challenge!! The challenge is to create a background with your stamps! 

And here is the card that I created:

I used one of Lawn Fawn's new sets, "Bugs and Kisses," my favorite alpha set, "Riley's ABCs," and the "Scripty Love Die." I stamped the little bugs randomly on a piece of kraft cardstock and colored the critters with Prismacolor pencils. I just wanted a little bit of color, so I only colored a little bit of the critters. I also used some glittery paper for the "love."

Well, thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to check out what the rest of the design team created - the girls did an amazing job! And don't forget that the winner of this challenge will receive a free stamp set from Lawn Fawn - woo hoo! :)

Home is where your honey is...

Good morning everyone! I hope that you are having a good week so far! I am so excited to be sharing this card with you that is being featured on the Lawn Fawn Blog today!

This card features a ton of different Lawn Fawn products including "Bugs and Kisses," "Riley's ABCs," "Stitched Scalloped Border Die," "Large Stitched Circle Dies," Lawn Trimmings (from the vivid triple pack) and patterned paper from the Let's Polka petite paper pack. The bees and hearts are stamped, colored with Prismacolor pencils, and die cut. After adhering the patterned paper and the circle showcasing the sentiment, I stamped the bee trail over top of the papers. For the bee trail at the top of the card, I only inked the last part of the trail in the stamp set.

I really like how this card came out and I think I'll give it to my husband for Valentine's Day! :) Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you Kelly for featuring this card! I hope that you all have a good day! :)

Sending My Thanks

Hi everyone! I hope that things are going well with you!

I have a card to share with you for the current Avery Elle Challenge!

I received a few Avery Elle stamp sets for Christmas, and I was so excited when I found that they have a challenge blog! The current challenge is about paper piecing! Here are the cards that I created:

I created a set of three thank you cards using Avery Elle's "Sending You" stamp set and patterned paper from "The Sorbet Collection." I tried to use coordinating inks that I had for the hearts, but the green one is a little bit off. Here is a picture of the three cards together:

Well, thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your week! :)

Lawnscaping #97 - Winter Themed

 Good morning, everyone! I hope that everyone had a nice Christmas and New Year! Life is finally starting to settle back down again after the craziness of the holiday! Does anyone else still have their Christmas tree up? We're keeping it up as long as we can! :)

Anyways, it's time again for a new Lawnscaping Challenge

The challenge this week is to create a winter themed project based on the Pinterest-inspired photos in the challenge badge pictured above.

I used the colors in the photos (the blues and whites) and the movie Elf as my inspiration! That is such a good winter movie - so funny! My card features Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Hillside Border Dies" (for the waves), "Large Stitched Circle Dies," "Violet's ABCs," "Year Two," "Critters in the Arctic," and "Critters in the Sea" stamp set, as well as "Let's Polka" patterned paper. I cut out two circles for the card base, and then cut out the waves from vellum. The critters are stamped and colored with Prismacolor pencils and attached with foam tape behind the waves. I also cut out a few hearts to add around the sentiment. (P.S. It's hard to get a picture of a round card without it rolling away! :))

This year, Lawnscaping has a new sponsor for the first challenge of the month! Ellen Hutson is the new sponsor and the winner of this challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate to the store!

Well, thanks for stopping by! I hope that you have a good week and I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge! :)

Merry Christmas!

"So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and  placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." - Matthew 2:4-7

Merry Christmas! I am back to share with you the last card in this year's 25 Days of Christmas! This card is to help remind us about the real reason for Christmas:

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Quinn's ABCs" and "Riley's ABCs." To make the upper case J, I just used the lower case J without the dot on top! The letters are colored with Prismacolor pencils and coated with stickles.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends. I am so thankful that God gave us the greatest gift of all, His Son! Merry Christmas! :)

25 Days of Christmas Day 23 and 24

 Hi everyone! Merry Christmas eve!! I realized late last night that I forgot to share a Christmas card with you yesterday! There are so many things that I'm trying to get done before Christmas that I completely forgot! I'm sorry!

To make up for it, I'm sharing two Christmas cards with you today! :)

This first card features Lawn Fawn's "Quinn's ABCs" and "Winter Gifts." I wanted to make something that was simple and to the point. The letters and images are colored with Prismacolor pencils!

This next card features Lawn Fawn's "Spruce" notecards and Paper Smooches "A Blessed Christmas" stamp and die. Again, simple and to the point!

Well, thanks for stopping by! Do you have any fun Christmas Eve traditions to do today? We always go to the candlelight Christmas Eve service at our church, and then we'll come home to drink some hot chocolate and read a few Christmas stories before bed. I can't wait! Have a nice day! :)

25 Days of Christmas Day 22

Hi everyone! Only a few days left until Christmas! Yay! :)

I have another card to share with you today that you may have already seen. This card was on the Lawn Fawn blog earlier in November, but it's just too "sweet" to not share again! :)

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Sweet Christmas" and "Milk and Cookies" stamp sets, as well as "Finley's ABCs" dies. Highlighting the sentiment with little images is such a cute way to make the sentiment shine! (And literally shine if you use glitter paper!!)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a good Monday! :)
