I love you like...

Hello! I hope that you're having a good week so far! I wanted to quickly share a card with you that I made a while ago.

That mouse really likes his cheese! This card features Lawn Fawn's "Milo's ABCs," "Critters on the Farm," and "Best Pun Ever" stamp sets. I really wanted to make something that featured the cheese from the "Best Pun Ever" set, and I thought the mouse would go perfectly with the cheese!

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

Lawnscaping #106 - Try a New Technique

 Hi everyone! I hope that you all had a nice weekend! We enjoyed a minor league baseball game with our youth group this weekend, and some fireworks, too! It was a lot of fun, even though the game lasted forever (it went into the 13th inning and I never thought it would end!). 

There is a new Lawnscaping Challenge today, which is all about trying a new technique!

I remember that Yainea shared this technique a long while ago, so I tried it! I used foam to create a stamp! 

I used Lawn Fawn's "Scripty Thanks" die to die cut some foam, and then attached it to a stamping block with some adhesive. I then used some colorful inks, including Lawn Fawn's "Wild Rose," "Freshly Cut Grass," and "Mermaid" inks, to stamp the sentiment. After I stamped the sentiment multiple times, I added some stars to give it some more details.

I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge! The winner will receive a free stamp set from Lawn Fawn, too!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a great week! :)

Masculine and Feminine Birthday Cards

 Hi everyone! I have two cards to share with you today that are being featured on the Lawn Fawn Blog! I made a feminine and masculine birthday card with the same layout!

The feminine birthday card features patterned paper from "Let's Polka" and "Let's Polka, Mon Amie." The Mon Amie paper is great for girly cards because of the soft, pastel colors.

The masculine card has the same layout, but I used patterned paper from "Pint-sized Patterns, Beachside" and I switched the hearts to stars. Using different patterned paper gives it such a different feel! Both of these cards also feature Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Stackable Circle Dies" and "Year Two" stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Kelly Marie for featuring my cards today! I hope that you all have a great day! :)

You're the coolest!

Hi everyone! I hope that you're having a good week so far! The weather has been gorgeous lately, so we've been able to take some walks, watch some softball games (my husband plays in a church league), and swing in the backyard. It's so nice!

I have a quick card to share with you today. I always need more thank you card and this was really easy to put together.

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Best Pun Ever" stamp and dies, "Scripty Thanks" die, "Stitched Square Stackable" die, Let's Polka petite paper pack, and Wild Rose ink pad. I used the Wild Rose ink to ink some white card stock before running the Thanks die through my Cuttlebug. That way the "thanks" matched the other ink and the pattern paper perfectly!

Well, thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day! My daughter just went done for a nap so it's time to get some chores done around the house! :)

Lawnscaping #105 - Watercolors

Hi everyone! Sorry that my post is a little bit late. This weekend was so busy that I completely forgot to post it until now!

Anyways, the current Lawnscaping challenge is all about watercolors!

Watercolor backgrounds are always so, so pretty, but I have such a hard time making mine look as nice, so I decided to use inks as watercolors to color my images!

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Best Pun Ever" and "Riley's ABCs" stamp sets, as well as Wild Rose, Freshly Cut Grass, and Mermaid ink pads. I also used Hero Arts Stone Wash and Butter Bar inks for the yellow and dark blue popsicles. To color the images, I dabbed the inks onto some wax paper and added some water. Then using a paint brush, I colored the images with the ink! Lawn Fawn's inks worked really well for this technique (the hero art inks turned out splotchy!)

The sponsor for this challenge is Ellen Hutson and the winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to their store!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a good day! The weather is beautiful today so I think we'll spend some time outside! :)

Have a wonderful day!

*This is my second post of the day. If you are looking for my Lawnscaping post, please click here or just keep scrolling down. Thanks!

Hello again! I have another card to share with you that is being featured on the Lawn Fawn Blog today!

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Gleeful Garden" stamp and dies, "Flirty Frames," "Riley's ABC's," "Quinn's ABC's," and "Violet's ABC's." stamp sets, and "Let's Polka, Mon Amie" patterned paper. I wanted a way to help frame the sentiment, so I used part of the border from one of the "Flirty Frames." Here is a close up on the card:

The images are all colored with Prismacolor pencils, and I also added some details to the images with a white paint pen. I think the sunflower is my favorite image from the Gleeful Garden set! And that snail is so cute!

Thanks for visiting and thank you Kelly for featuring my card today! I hope that you all have a wonderful day!! :)

Lawnscaping #104 - Sketch

 Hi everyone! I hope that you had a nice weekend! The weather was gorgeous this weekend, so we were able to spend a lot of time outside. I hope that the nice weather is finally here to stay!

Anyways, it is time again for a new Lawnscaping Challenge! The challenge is to create a project based off of the sketch.

I was inspired by the circle in the sketch to create this card:

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Flirty Frames" stamp and die, "Stitched Journaling Card" die, "Hello Sunshine" stamp, Lawn Trimming, and a bunch of patterned paper including "Let's Polka," "Sweater Weather," and "Hello Sunshine" petite paper packs. This colorful card is definitely going to brighten someone's mailbox! :)

I hope that you're able to play along with the challenge! The winner will receive a free stamp set from Lawn Fawn! Woo hoo! Don't forget to also check out the projects from the rest of the Lawnscaing design team because they're all so amazing!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day! :)
