I am in the process of switching to a hosted wordpress blog (www.laurelbeard.org). I THINK Wordpress can transfer all of those who subscribed here over to there. Fingers crossed!
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!
I had so much fun playing along with the Coffee Lovers Blog hop on Monday! National Coffee Day has come and gone, but I’ll always be having my coffee… This morning, I had a cup of coffee along with a donut so yup, had to whip up this card….
All Lawn Fawn goodies!!!! The supply list is linked blow so be sure and check it out. I love the paper kit and all the designs and colors… I watercolored in the images with my Inktense watercolor pencils and the party banner die is perfect for the card shape.
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!
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).
So there you have it. A couple of really fun critter inspired cards! I hope you will stop on over at the Lawnscaping Challenge blog and check out what the rest of the design team made and play along!!! You’ve got 10 whole days! And LAWN FAWN in sponsoring this challenge so YOU could win!!!!!

Hi there everyone! Today is my second post of the day. There will be one more in about an hour! I KNOW I KNOW! Busy day at the blog today! It’s Lawnscaping Challenge time! WOO HOO! I love LAWN FAWN, and I love this challenge! Lawn Fawn just had their mega release so I can’t wait to play with all of my new goodies! (Ellen Hutson is having a one day sale today only, 15% off your entire order using code: LaborDay14 – Perfect time to get some Lawn Fawn at discount: CLICK HERE)
I did want to reach out for an oldie for this challenge though! So my new goodies had to wait! The challenge this week is ONE LAYER! Don’t be scared. One layer is actually fun and requires less supplies and is easy to mass produce unless you do a lot of masking and what not! Let’s take a look at what I created, with Christmas in mind of course. 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!
As I mentioned before, we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp (who just released their stamptember2014 release TODAY, click HERE to shop). The winner will receive $25 gift certificate to their online store!

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!
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!
The amazing Lawn Fawn is sponsoring the challenge! The winner will receive a free stamp set so please head over to the Lawnscaping blog and check out the rest of the amazing projects over there!

Hi there everyone and welcome to another Lawnscaping Challenge! This week is perfect timing as my son goes back to school in a few weeks, sniff sniff! 3rd grade! Where does the time go I ask???? I decided to keep it simple and create a chalkboard style project using lots of Lawn Fawn goodies that could work as a notecard or as a tag! …… The shape came from this die set, which I adore. (ALL supplies will be linked below to multiple sources). I love the round corners and stitched edges! I heat embossed the THANKS with white embossing powder and then took some Unicorn White pigment ink and sponged it onto the black cardstock.
I cut and colored a few images from the Good Apple stamp set and popped them up using some foam dimension. See the apple? Added a coat of Christmas Red stickles over the top! A little Lawn Fawn Peppermint hemp to finish it off.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp! They have generously offered a $25 gift certificate to their online store!!!
