Lawnscaping Challenge: Dimension

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Lawnscaping Challenge.  I played along one or twice last year, so I’m happy to play along today.

 

Lawnscaping Challenge

The challenge this time is all about DIMENSION!  Adding pops of dimension to your project really add that wow factor to your projects.

Take a look at my card:

Hello

I’ve added plenty dimension to my card.

Here is how I created my card:

1. I cut my card to a 5 x 3.5 scored at 3.5.

2. I used Lawn Fawn Dream stamp set to stamp the small feather with Lawn Fawn Fake Tan Ink.

3. I cut a thin strip of Lawn Fawn Beachside Pattern Paper and adhered it over the stamped feathers. I also die cut the feathers from the same paper using the Lawn Fawn Dream Cuts.

4. I cut a thin strip of Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold cardstock and adhered it on top of the pattern paper.

5. I adhered the feathers.

6. I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello four times and stacked them on top of each other.  I adhered the stacked die to the center of my card.

Super doper easy and I  like this card size.  I’m glad I tried it.

I’m also linking my card to Virginia’s View Challenge #14: Layers and Dimensions.

Count Me In…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing along with Lawnscaping Challenge 94: Count Me In!!

94

This challenge asked us to use numbers somewhere on our project!  Boy was I excited to see this challenge.  I have so many Lawn Fawn numbers stamp and dies that I’ve haven’t used yet.  I was excited to pull them out.

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve had so much fun creating tags and gift boxes.  So for this challenge I wanted to do the same.

I create two tags for this challenge.  The first one I created yesterday before I even knew about the challenge.  I wasn’t sure about this tag because I felt like something was missing in the top right hand corner.  So I put the tag down.  After seeing the challenge this morning I decided that I will add a number to the corner.

Happy Birthday tags

Take a closer look:

What do you think about this tag?

For my second tag, I wanted to use my die cuts to cut out the number and use he negative space.  I really love how this tag turned out as well.

How cool is that!!  I said to myself, why not go for the the gusto!!  So, I did!!

I picked up the cutest Lawn Fawn stamp set and die today from a scrapbook store I found online called Scrappers Playground.  It’s a cute store with all sorts of papercraft goodies.  Its in Long Island, a really nice drive, on such a pleasant day.   The ladies that helped me were so helpful and nice.  They were passionate about what they do!  I will have to go back for a class on my free time!!  If your in the LI area, check them out!

On to my cards, I have two, couldn’t help myself:

I love these little birds!  Here’s how I created this card:

1. My card base is 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50.  My card panel is cut to 4 x 5.25, I rounded all four corners.

2. I embossed my card panel with Stampin’ Up! Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.

3. I stamped my birds and tree branch from Lawn Fawns Winter Sparrows.  I colored my birds with Copic markers: Body C5 and their accessories BG34.

4. I used the Lawn Fawn Winter Sparrow dies to cut everything out.

5. I attached the tree branch and the birds with foam adhesive.

6. I used Lawn Fawn Joy die and cut out three of them from white card stock and one from Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather pattern paper.

7. I stacked them together using Tombo Mono Adhesive.

8. I added it to my card panel.

9. I added Stampin’ Up! Whisper White bakers twine to the right side of the card panel.

That was easy!!

It’s Christmas In October…

91

I received my new Clearly Besotted Stamp Set made exclusively for Simon Says Stamp Winter Friends and Die set that I had to use.

This set is so cute I can’t believe it.  4 animal images and Santa Claus are the cutest things I’ve seen in awhile.

Take a look at my card:

My Deer Christmas Card

Tell me that reindeer isn’t the cutest little thing you’ve seen in a long time.  Look at that nose, so nice a red.

Look at how he matches the pattern patter behind him.  Those little tiny reindeer’s are adorable.

This card was very easy to make. Here is how I did that.

2. I cut my Doodlebug Home For the Holiday paper to fit on the front of my card front.

3. I cut my Neenah Solar White cardstock with my Lawn Fawn Stitched Banner Die, the smaller one.

4. I stamped my Reindeer from Winter Friends using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then I use the Die to cut him out.

5. I Copic markers to color my reindeer: Body: E40, E41, E43, E44, E49, Nose & Ears: R24, R27

6. I added Clear Wink of Stella to his nose so that it could be a shiny nose.

7. I adhered my Reindeer to my cardstock with foam adhesive. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

8. I added Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine to the stitched banner.

9. I adhered the banner to the patten paper with foam adhesive.

10. I added Rudolph Red Skittles (how perfect are those and the name) to my banner.

Nice and Simple!!

Birdie Love Letter…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here with a new challenge that I’ve wanted to play along with for awhile now but haven’t had a chance.  So, today is that day!! I’m a bit excited about it.

The new challenge is Lawnscaping Challenge No. 91: Patterned Paper.  How much fun will this be! I have so much pattern paper that has never been touched.  I’m hoping I can really search my stash an come up with some great cards.

91

I decided to use some of my retired Stampin’ Up! Welcome Neighbor DSP for this challenge.  I have tons of it and this is such a great way to use it up.

Take a look at my card:

I love you so much

Don’t you just love this little birdie!!  I do.  This image is from Gerda Steiner Designs and its called Cute Bird with Letter Digital Stamp.   Gerda’s images are so cute, you must check them out.

I added some new DoubleClick Skittles Sunshine Yellow for added interest.  Are they just the cutest thing you’ve seen.  That yellow color is awesome.

So, I have another first that I can’t wait to share with all of you.  I videotaped myself coloring with my Copic markers!!

Take a look at my very first video. I am truly excited about this.  I’ve wanted to create videos for a long time but was afraid and now I’m super excited about it.

So what do you think?  Let me know.
