Lawnscaping #68 - Pinterest Inspired!

 Hi everyone! It's that time again - another Lawnscaping Challenge! Yay! We have a super fun challenge for you this week - to create a card inspired by an image on Pinterest!

You can still play along even if you don't have a Pinterest account. Just find an image somewhere else online and use that as the inspiration for your project! Make sure to include the image on your blog so that we can see where you got your inspiration from!

I was a little bit intimidated by this challenge at first. There are so many pictures to choose from and I had a hard time deciding which one to use! I decided to focus on a Christmas card and I eventually found this photo to use as my inspiration:

I really liked the blue and silver for Christmas and especially how the photo made the ornaments sparkle, so I used that as my inspiration to create this Christmas card:

I used a few different blue inks, as well as silver ink, to stamp all of the snowflakes. The images are from Lawn Fawn's "Making Frosty Friends" and "Winter Gifts" stamp sets. I also added some stickles and glossy accents to the snowflakes to give the card a sparkley look. Here is a close up of the snowflakes:

I hope that you'll get a chance to play along with the challenge this week! The winner of this challenge will receive a stamp set from Lawn Fawn! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you create for the challenge! :)

Wanna Sketch No. 9

Hello! Ah, I'm so glad it's the weekend! Does anyone else get tomorrow off for Columbus day? Since I work at a bank, we get every little holiday off, so I'm looking forward to my extra day off tomorrow! :)

I have a card to share with you for the current Wanna Sketch No. 9 Challenge! The challenge is to create a card based on this sketch:


Here is the card that I created for this sketch:

This card would be perfect for Valentine's Day, but I made it as an anniversary card. This card features Paper Smooches "Love Die," and Lawn Fawn's "Tag, You're It" die, "Stitched Journaling Card" dies, and silver sparkle Lawn Trimming. The little hearts also have some stickles added to give them some sparkle!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I think I am going to do some shopping and baking on my day off tomorrow. Maybe I'll even do some crafting! :)

CAS-ual Fridays #116

Hello everyone! I am so excited because I was able to find some time this week to play along with the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge! The challenge is to use sequins and chevrons in your project.

I decided to use the sequins and chevrons to make this simple anniversary card:

This card features Lawn Fawn's "A Birdie Told Me," "Happy Everything," and "Happily Ever After" stamp sets, as well as Lawn Fawn's mixed sequins. The speech bubbles are both cut from patterned paper and attached with foam tape for a little bit of dimension. The sentiment is stamped in "Wet Cement" by Hero Arts Shadow Inks.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Lawnscaping #67 - Patterned Paper

Happy Monday!! I hope that everyone had a nice relaxing weekend! We were able to spend some time visiting my parents, making homemade spaghetti sauce (mmm!) and listening to/watching the Pirates beat the Cardinals!! It was a good weekend! :)

It's time again for another Lawnscaping Challenge! Woohoo! The current challenge is to create a project with patterned paper!

I decided to use some of the cute patterned paper from the "Into the Woods" petite paper pack to create this card:

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Into the Woods" and "Critters in the Forest" stamp sets, "Stitched Journaling Card" die, black alphabet stickers, and yellow washi tape. I really like how this card turned out - so cute! :)

I can't wait to see what your create for this challenge! You have until October 16th to play along, and the winner will receive a gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp! Get crafting
