Lawnscaping August Blog Hop

Happy Friday, I hope you are enjoying the blog hop! If you came from Lenny's blog, you are in right spot. The theme of this blog hop is pink and warm gray colors. I made a sweet little scene using the koala from the "Critters Down Under" stamp set. The pattern papers from the "Let's Polka" petite paper pack go perfectly with the blog hops color combination. I embellished my card "Silver Single Cord" and adorable flower shaped rhinestones.

Materials Used:
Into the Woods
Critters Down Under
Let's Polka Petite Paper Pack
Silver Single Cord

The sponsor of this blog hop is Spectrum Noir. The winner will be randomly chosen from comments left on each designer's blog. The prize is two marker sets shown above, good luck!

The next stop on this blog hop is Roxanne! I hope you have a wonderful day!

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!

Lawnscaping Challenge #87- Back to School

Happy Monday,  I am very excited for the newest Lawnscaping Challenge! The challenge is to create a back to school themed project! School is right around the corner for many kids. One of my favorite things about this time of year was buying brand new school supplies. I created a fun scholastic card using a variety of Lawn Fawn supplies. I was inspired by the color combinations in the "Dewey Decimal" petite paper pack. The birds and book, from the "Science of Love" stamp set, coordinated perfectly with the pattern papers. I also used the "Science of Love" lawn die cuts, they save so much time and are so easy to use. I finished off my card with gold sparkle twine. Whenever I wrap twine around my card I typically use foam tape so the paper doesn't leave bumps where the twine is. 

Materials Used:
A Good Apple
Dewey Decimal petite paper pack
Gold Sparkle single cord
Science of Love 
Science of Love lawn cuts

The sponsor of this challenge is Simon Says Stamp, the winner will receive a $25 gift certificate!
