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.

These feathers are super fun to work with.  I love the detail on each feather! So you want to know how I created this card?

Here you go:

1. I cut a piece of watercolor paper down to 4.25 x 5.50 and taped it down to my work station.

2. I added a good amount of water to my watercolor paper.

3. Then I dropped Distress Inks Broken China and Evergreen Bough to my paper and let the color spread all over my paper.  I heat set it.  Then I sprayed water in my hand and drop some drops of water onto my paper to create blotches of white spots.

4. Once my watercolor piece dried.  You can see in the next photo how watercolor dries lighter.

Take a look at my card:

Giving Thanks for you

Giving Thanks for you close up

I just received my new order from Simon Says Stamp Kelly Purkey’s sale.  I ordered the feathers die and thought it would work well with this challenge.

I die cut the four feathers from Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods pattern paper.

Then I attached them to each other using a Stampin’ Up! glue dots.

Then I added Stampin’ Up! linen thread to a retired Stampin’ Up! naturals button, tied a bow and adhered it to the top of my feathers.

I stamped my sentiment giving thanks from Simon Says Stamp Giving Thanks Stamp Set with Colorbox Chestnut Roan chalk inkpad.

Nice, clean and simple card with a lot of white space.

What do you think?

Dare To Dream..

Second Post for the Day

Hello everyone! I’m back again today with another card for the Muse Challenge #72.  The Muse this week was Marion Vagg.

IMG_2508

Her card is so whimsical and carefree.  I love how fun it looks.

As I sat down to create my card I wanted that same carefree, flowing feeling when I looked at my card.   I decided to use the Dream stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  The feathers gave me that free-flowing feeling.

Dream

I used Stampin’ Up’ new Lost Lagoon in color for my card base.  I wanted to stay in the same color family as Marion.

I stamped my images and then colored them with the Lost Lagoon marker so that my colors matched.

I adhered a strip of black cardstock tot he left side to tie everything together.

So what do you think?  Did I do a good job interpreting Marion’s card?
