Happy Monday to you all! Today I am here with a fun card for the Lawnscaping Challenge! The challenge is all about patterned paper! I hoard it. I don’t know why. I barely use it! And I don’t know why either, lol! So I am glad about this challenge because it forced me to break out some patterned paper and get to work… I used some patterned from the Sweater Weather collection. And the bunnies from this set are adorbs I tell ya! I did a lot of stamping and fussy cutting to create this little number….

I forgot all about the polaroid from Say Cheese. Perfect for this little bunny scene if I do say so myself…  Oh, the vellum polka dot paper is awesome!  I found it in my ridiculously huge stash of PP so I have no idea where it came from, but it’s awesome. And all gone… Wah…..  Pretty clean and straightforward but I LOVE it!!! 🙂  Be sure to head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge and check out what the rest of the DT made!!!!

This challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp  The winner will receive $25 gift certificate to their online store!

Alright folks. Here today with the easiest goody bag ever! Why? Because Lawn Fawn makes it so easy with THIS die and this paper pad… Minimal supplies and you can create a load of goody bags great for your kids classes, teacher gifts, neighbor gifts, whatever!!!!! I simply ran the die thru the patterned paper from this paper pad, used one of my punches to create the focal panel on the front, used some flair from the  kit, assembled together and done! See? SOOOOO EASY! The paper is pad. It also comes in 6×6 and the flair can be purchased separately!

Lawnscaping Challenge: Critters Galore sponsored by Lawn Fawn

HELLO HELLO and a happy Monday to you all! Today is Lawnscaping Challenge day! WOO HOO!!!! Do you like critters? I do!!!! So I love this challenge! It’s fantastic!!! Critters aren’t just the critters in the popular critter line either! Here I used some of the monsters from monster mash… I couldn’t stop there so I made another card using some critters! Let’s take a peek!

I am in love with this Monster Mash stamp set! It is adorable. Reminds me of the ghosts from PacMan! I don’t typically care for Halloween themed sets but this set can be used for Halloween cards as well. I plan on using it to create  my son’s treat bags for school! I paired Monster Mash with the Party Banner die and stitched hillside die. Each of the hearts from the set were stamped sporadically and colored in with various Wink of Stella glitter brush pens! And of course, I had to add a few googly eyes! Oh, isn’t that patterned paper fab? It from this LF paper kit!!!! Added a few enamel dots and done.

Now onto the next card! Party critters style, lol! I stamped various critters from all kinds of critters sets and fussy cut them out (didn’t want the white border from the dies)… (ALL the sets I used are linked below in the product description section).  I scattered them along the base of the card. I stamped PARTY and filled in the letters with Stickles for some fun dimension and shine! And all of the images were colored with my alcohol markers…. (Copics and Spectrum Noir).

My favorite season of the year!

Now you will have the song PA RA PA PA PUM in your mind because that is the name of the stamp set I used today, lol! I stamped them all onto my card base, colored them in with my alcohol markers, did a little ink flicking, rounded the corners  and voila, done! Take a close look at the puffs of smoke. Thats the Wink of Luna marker in silver! 🙂 And the multi colored ink sentiment? WPLUS9 inks rock!

Christmas in August with Lawn Fawn

DSC_0008

So yes, I was in the Christmas spirit today so I took some time out of the day for myself and created this for the Pretty Pink Posh Cutting edge blog hop. This card actually took me a long time to make believe it or not, lol! But I had fun. First I stamped the images from several different Lawn Fawn stamps and colored them! Some images were then die cut while the rest were fussy cut! See the stitched panel background? That is from this Lawn Fawn set that will be available for purchase on the 28th of this month, just 3 more days! This release is amazing! I  die cut the Christmas tree from this set. I did some creative masking and decided to add some stripes to the background using this stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  I added some liquid applique to the gingerbread peeps.  And of course, I would so totally love to have that color fireplace in my house!

As I mentioned before, I am going to play along and join in on the fun over at the Pretty Pink Posh Cutting Edge blog hop! You have until tonight to play along! If you need incentive other than fun and inspiration, there are about a bajillion prizes that can be won also.

Hi there! And happy Monday! Not only is today the Lawnscaping Challenge, but also the day my son starts 3rd grade! I will be home, a mess. Crying! The only thing that will keep me sane today is my daughter…. Where does the time go I tell you…..

This week’s challenge is all about texture! I made the obvious choice and used some Wendy Vecchi Embossing paste and some of the new products from Lawn Fawn that will be available for purchase on August 28th!

DSC_0048

All of the images from this set were colored with Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils. I admit, this is not my most favorite project. I plan to redeem myself later in the week! BUT, the images are adorable as is the goodie bag! So this was all me! MOJO = TOILET. Hope it returns soon, lol!
