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!

Lawnscaping Challenge #80- Mini Cards

Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend! I am very excited for the newest Lawnscaping Challenge. This challenge is to create mini cards, which we all know everything is super cute when it is mini size! I made a really fun dinosaur mini card set using fluorescent markers and papers. The tree, leaves, and dinosaurs are from the "Critters from the Past" stamp set. I used thin foam adhesive tape behind each dinosaur to create a little dimension. I also used "Spring Showers," "Stitched Journaling Card," and "Tag You're It" die cuts.

Materials Used:
Critters From the Past
Spring Showers
Stitched Journaling Card
Tag You're It

The sponsor of this challenge is Lawn Fawn, one lucky winner will receive a stamp set of their choice!

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!
