Lawnscaping Challenge #95- White on White


Good Morning! Today I have a card to share with you for the current Lawnscaping Challenge. The challenge is to create a project that is white! This really was a challenge to do, but my main challenge was to get it to photograph well. My card has a lot of layers and texture to create dimension. I started with a white cardstock base then adhered a sparkly white paper on top. Embossed white paper was added on top of the sparkly paper. I wrapped vellum around the embossed cardstock, and added all my elements to the vellum. The shimmer on the die cut letters is a white Wink of Stella brush pen. The trees from the "Snow Day" stamp set were embossed with clear powder on white cardstock. 


Materials Used:
Cole's ABCs
Snow Day


The sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says stamp. The winner of the challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate. Which is an awesome prize!

Lawnscaping Challenge #88- Texture


Good morning, I hope you had a great weekend! It is time for another awesome Lawnscaping Challenge. This challenge is to create a project with texture. I LOVE adding texture to my projects! I made this card for my mom's birthday, she is my crafting buddy. We started making cards together a little over 10 years ago, and its something we always enjoy doing together. 
A simple and fun way to add texture is by using embossing folders. I used a swiss dot embossing folder for the background of my card. I layered patterned paper on top of the embossed cardstock. I used some burlap ribbon to add an organic element to my design. The "Birthday Tag" has foam tape behind it to add dimension. The bear, from the "Love You S'more" stamp set, just needed a party hat. The birthday hat, from the "Hats off to You" stamp set, fits perfectly on the bear. The bear is sitting on fun pom pom trimming. I added "Silver Sparkle Cord" to my tag, and buttons to the card to add additional texture. 

Material Used:
Birthday Tags
Hats Off to You
Love You S'more
Silver Sparkle Cord


This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn, the winner of the challenge will receive a stamp set of their choice!
