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




This challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp! The winner of this challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp!

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.

Lawnscaping Challenge #78- Clean and Simple



Happy Monday! It is time again for another Lawnscaping Challenge. The challenge is to create a clean and simple project. I decided to create a simple scene with a variety of Lawn Fawn products. I have been wanting to use the superhero owl from the "Critters in Costume" stamp set, so I thought this challenge was the perfect opportunity to use it. I used two different paper packs, Dewey Decimal and Let's Polka. I was pretty excited to finally be able to use the Let's Polka paper pack, I love the simple patterns and all the bright colors. 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-
Cole's ABCs

Lawnscaping Challenge #76- Dust 'em Off


Good morning! It is time again for another fun Lawnscaping Challenge. This challenge is so much fun, because you must create a project using unloved stamps or products. I can't say that I have unloved Lawn Fawn products because I honestly love them all. We all know though as our collections grow, we tend to be drawn to the newer products. 

I decided to make a fun card using many Lawn Fawn stamps and the Dewey Decimal paper pack. I love the bold colors in this pack, and the patterns work so well together. The little horse is from the Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum stamp set. It is actually the rocking horse with the bottom wood piece removed. I used the barn and sentiment from the Critters on the Farm stamp set. I masked the sentiment so it could fit inside the speech bubble from the A Birdie Told Me stamp set. 

Lawn Fawn Supplies:
Dewey Decimal petite paper pack
Critters on the farm

Lawnscaping Inspiration Hop- Let's Celebrate Valentine's Day


Happy Friday and Happy Valentine's Day! If you came from Tracy's blog, then you are in the right spot! I am so excited for this Lawnscaping Challenges blog hop, because it is the first one the Lawnscaping Inspiration Team has done plus it is for such a fun theme! Valentine's day allows you to show family and friends how much you love them. 


I am totally in love with this Lawn Fawn Critters from the Past stamp set. From the moment I saw it, I knew I just had to have it! All of the different critter stamp sets Lawn Fawn makes are amazing, they are just simply adorable. That snazzy handmade Valentine that the T-Rex made is from the Critters Ever After stamp set.

The pattern papers have a fun distressed look to them, which works well with the dinosaurs. I used the Stitched Journaling Card lawn cuts on the sky and ground papers. I love the stitched border the die gives. The Stitched Journaling Card was also used for the banner. I cut two and offset the bottom banner to create a drop shadow. I tied Silver Sparkle Single Cord around the pattern papers, then placed foam squares under to create dimension.

Lawnscaping Challenge #75- Dots & Hearts




Good morning! Today I have a card to share with you for the Lawnscaping Challenge. This challenge is to create a project with dots or hearts, or combine both together! I personally love polka dots, I use them in many of my projects. I also chose to use hearts on my card too! 

When I saw the "Science of Love" I immediately fell in love with the set. I also purchased the coordinating die cuts, which are awesome! I love the birds, and their glasses are so adorable. Their look was perfect for my retro card. The television, from the "Stay Tuned" stamp set, is playing some of the love birds favorite music so they just have to dance. I just had to use the "Say Cheese" photo frame to capture the moment! 

Materials Used-
Science of Love- Lawn Cuts

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a card that I made for the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge which is anything goes. This winter has been very cold and snowy, and I am really ready for spring to get here! When the weather gets warmer I love to take pictures of nature, so I decided to make a card based off of that. The photographer chick is from the Chubby Chums stamp set. The snazzy camera is so adorable and is from the Perpetual Bliss stamp set. The tall trees and the small yellow bird are from the Spring Groves stamp set. I used fun pattern papers, flowers, pearls, and twine to finish off my card.

Lawnscaping Challenge #74- Inspired By


Happy Monday! I love the new Lawnscaping Challenge which is to create a project inspired by a design team member. One of my favorite things about crafting and cardmaking is seeing what others create. Inspiration is everywhere, and there are just so many talented crafters and artists out there. It was a little tricky to choose one project to be inspired by, but there was one card in particular that stood out in my mind. The card that Elena made for the Lawnscaping Challenge #56. She created an adorable card with a rhino floating in the sky by colorful balloons. I was inspired by the whimsical scene she made, so I decided to recreate a similar scene with a whale and many more balloons.

Lawn Fawn Stamps Used:
Critters in the Sea
Admit One
Blue Skies


The sponsor of this challenge is Lawn Fawn! One lucky winner will win a stamp set of their choice!

Good morning and happy Monday! It is time again for another Lawnscaping Challenge, and this challenge is an extra special one. We are celebrating Lawnscaping Challenges Blog's Birthday! The challenge is to create a birthday themed project.

I made a fun birthday card using some of my favorite Lawn Fawn dies and stamps. Did you know the yetis actually love to juggle and entertain at birthday parties? It is a hidden talent. The yeti is juggling tennis balls and standing on the dish from the Critters in the Dog Park stamp set. His snazzy polka dot clown outfit was pretty fun to make. I drew two simple straight lines to create the top of the outfit. I then made a simple mask to block off the yeti's head, hands, feet, and stomach. I took the bubbles from the Critters of the Sea stamp set and inked the smallest bubble. I randomly stamped the circle to create a polka dot pattern.

Lawn Cuts- Cole's ABCs

Sweet Christmas

Happy Thursday! I have created a "sweet" Christmas card using a mixture of Lawn Fawn supplies. Many people have holiday traditions of baking cookies and/or scrumptious treats. These little gingerbread men are having so much fun baking and sharing their freshly made cookies. 


The oven they are using to make their cookies is from the "Plus One" stamp set. I masked out the bun that was inside the oven. I then stamped, die cut, and glued the cookies inside it. The cookies are from the "Cozy Christmas" stamp set. The gingerbread cookies and the "Have a Sweet Christmas" sentiment are from the "Sweet Christmas" stamp set.

I must share one of my new favorite Lawn Fawn products. The Lawn Cuts "Stitched Journaling Card" dies are awesome! Not only do you get the adorable journaling card with stitching, there is a fun flag shape too. I stamped my sentiment inside the flag shape! There are hearts, arrows, stars, and banner shapes that are also in "Stitched Journaling Card" that you can use to decorate your projects!

I had so much fun making this card! Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful day!

Today I have a card to share with you for the Oozak Challenge. This challenge is to create a project using something old and something new. I have been eyeing this Paper Smooches Chilly Chums stamp set for a long time. When Oozaks got it in I just had to snatch it up. The walrus is just adorable and makes me smile. I paired my new stamp set with one of my favorite stamp sets of all time Lawn Fawn's Say Cheese. I also found in my collection of embellishments little paper snowflakes, that I purchased many years ago, but I was of saving them for the right project.
