Happy Friday, and welcome to my blog! If you came from the incredibly talented Lenny's Blog you are in the right spot! The card I made for this hop was inspired by summer, and lemonade is a refreshing beverage for hot summer days. I made a sweet little card for this hop using two different Lawn Fawn stamp sets.  The jar and lemons are from the "Summertime Charm" stamp set. I also used the " Make Lemonade" stamp set to decorate the label on the jar. I paired my lemonade with colorful pattern paper and sheer polka dot ribbon!

Lawnscaping Challenge #86- Watercoloring


Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend! Today I am sharing a card I made for the Lawnscaping Challenge. The challenge is to create a project using watercolors, which is such an awesome medium to use. There are so many different products and techniques you can use to create a watercolored look. I used Distress Inks, because I wanted a rich color for my little sushi. I LOVE the sushi from the Let's Roll stamp set. These little sushi are absolutely adorable, you can customize them with different faces. I mixed different pattern papers and finished my card with Gold Sparkle Cord.

Materials Used-
Let's Roll
Gold Sparkle Single Cord

I finished off my card with gold sparkle twine.

The clouds are a perfect backdrop to the hot air balloons from the "Blue Skies" stamp set. I embellished my card with yellow rhinestones and lime Lawn Fawn twine. I had so much fun layering all the different elements on my card!

Lawnscaping Challenge #81- Create Your Own Background


Happy Monday! It is time again for another fun Lawnscaping Challenge. This challenge is to create a background using multiple stamps. I created a whimsical starry background using three different Lawn Fawn star stamps. I stamped the "Starry Backdrop" with Versamark ink on yellow cardstock and heat embossed the stars with clear embossing powder. I blended distressed inks on top of the yellow cardstock creating a fun sky. I then used pink ink and stamped stars from the "Critters Ever After" and "Blue Skies" stamp sets. I also inked the edges of the grass from the "Pink Lemonade" petite paper pack. The raccoon and mushrooms are from the "Critters in the Forest" stamp set, I love all the different animals in this set. The thank you bubble, from the "Many Thanks" stamp set, is in perfect proportion to the raccoon.

Lawnscaping April Blog Hop

Happy Friday! I hope you are enjoying this Lawnscaping blog hop. If you came from Tracy's blog then you are in the right spot. The theme for this hop is to make a project that is inspired  by turquoise and pale colors.


I made a fun mini size birthday card for this hop. Turquoise and pale colors remind me of the ocean, so I just had to use the "Critters of the Sea" stamp set. The cute little octopus is indulging himself in a tasty cupcake. The "Birthday Tags" stamp set was a perfect addition for my birthday themed card. The papers from "Daphne's Closet" and "Let's Polka" worked so well with my color palette. I tied the "Silver Sparkle" single cord around the top of my card.  I finished off my card with turquoise embellishments that remind me of bubbles!

Critters in the Sea
Daphne's Petite Paper Pack
Let's Polka Petite Paper Pack

Lawnscaping Challenge #79- Try A New Technique



Happy Monday! It is time again for another Lawnscaping Challenge! The challenge is to create a card or project using a new technique. How fun is that?! There are TONS of fun crafty products out on the market. Sometimes it can be intimidating using new products or trying a new technique, but you need to either experiment or just dive right in. Many people posted really good and informative video and picture tutorials too!  

For my technique, I chose to use Dylusions Spray Inks on pattern paper. I used three different Dylusions Spray ink colors, Vibrant Turquoise, London Blue, and White Linen. You can blend the colors with water in a mini spritzer. Be sure that you don't saturate the paper too much or it will ripple. I used a craft heat gun to dry my inks because I am just too impatient to wait for it to dry naturally. 

I created a fun beach themed card using stamps from the "Critters in the Sea" stamp set. The frame is die cut from super thin sandpaper using the "Say Cheese" lawn cuts. I tore my pattern paper that I sprayed to create waves in the ocean. I used a fun yellow pattern paper from the "Pink Lemonade" petite paper pack, and die cut out the sun from the "Spring Showers" Lawn Cuts dies. 

Materials Used:
Lawn Fawn- Say Cheese Lawn Cuts
Lawn Fawn- Spring Showers Lawn Cuts
Lawn Fawn- Pink Lemonade Petite Paper Pack
Lawn Fawn- Critters in the Sea

Lawnscaping March Blog Hop


Hey everyone, I am so excited for this Lawnscaping March blog hop! If you came from Tracy's blog you are in the right spot.


Yellow and green is such a fun color combination, it reminds me of spring and sunshine. I love the "Critters Ever After" stamp set, and just had to use the frog and castle for my card. I created a colorful magical scene that combines both the "Critters Ever After" stamp set and the "Spring Showers" craft die set. The stitched clouds and sun are just adorable! The papers from the "Pink Lemonade" petite paper pack worked perfectly with my color theme.

I also used a combination of lawn cuts, Stitched Journaling Cards and Tag You're It, for the sky and tag.

Lawnscaping Challenge #77- Bling It


Happy Monday! It is time again for another Lawnscaping Challenge!  The challenge is to create a project using sparkles. Adding sparkles to projects always create a fun texture and dimension. I cut the sentiment out of glittery green paper using Lawn Fawn's Cole's ABCs. I also cut out black letters and offset them behind to create a shadowy look. The playful dog, from the Critters at the Dog Park stamp set, has a fashionable rhinestone collar. I also added rhinestones to the flowers on the pattern paper. Light pink and white twine is wrapped around the card and tied in a bow.

Materials Used-
