Lawnscaping Challenge 136

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge! The theme for Challenge #136 is “Punny Time“, which means we’d like you to use one of Lawn Fawn‘s many punny sentiments in your entry (or you can create your own)!

Here’s my card. I used stamps from Lawn Fawn’s “Happy Harvest” and the now-retired “Happy Feast” sets.

I stamped the corn stalks in three different colors of green ink to give them a layered look. I stamped the wagon, colored it, and trimmed off the pumpkins that are normally inside. I stamped the mini corn a bunch of times and the larger corn to be the featured one in the wagon.

I used a small strip of kraft cardstock and one of the Stitched Hillside Borders to create the ground. I used several dies and punches to create the blue ribbon.

Lawnscaping Challenge 135

Hi, everybody! It’s a new month and also time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge!
The theme for Challenge #135 is “Patterned Palooza“, which means we’d like you to use patterns of some kind in your entry. For example, you can use patterned paper, or make your own pattern with your craft supplies and stamps!

Here’s my card. I used stamps from Lawn Fawn’s “On The Mend” and “Treat Yourself” sets. I think any friend or loved one going through a difficult time in their personal life would love to get a card like this card in the mail!

100_6166wm

I covered the face on the tissue stamp with washi tape to mask it and paper pieced the box with scraps from the “Perfectly Plaid” petite paper pack. the ice cream container and curved panel were made with sheets from the “Let’s Polka Mon Amie” petite paper pack, specifically the sheets of Strawberry Polka and Mint Line Dance.  I colored the spoon with a silver gel pen.

Lawnscaping Challenge 134

Hi, everybody! Are you ready for a new Lawnscaping challenge? This time, we’ve gone over the rainbow for our inspiration! I made this birthday card for a little girl who loves horses:

100_6158wm

I used the little confetti stamps from Lawn Fawn‘s “Party Animal” set to make a heat embossed background, then stamped different colors of ink on a clear block and used a water brush to “paint” over the embossing to create custom paper.

After stamping the unicorn from the “Critters Ever After” set, I snipped off the unicorn’s horn and placed a stamped flower over the trimmed spot to make it into a horse.

Lawnscaping Challenge 133

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new Lawnscaping challenge! I hope you had fun with our last challenge! We had so many amazing entries!

This week, we’re inspired by a mood board!  What I find fun about this type of challenge is that you don’t have to be inspired by everything, but you can pick certain images to create with! I picked the color combo used in the images and stamped part of my sentiment on black card stock, then heat embossed it with white powder.

I die-cut the word “smile” twice: once from a sheet of sunflower Let’s Polka paper and again from smooth white card stock. I layered the two to create dimension and stamped the bee (from Lawn Fawn’s “Bugs and Kisses” set) to add another pop of yellow. The main panel on the card front is from the Perfectly Plaid petite paper pack.

One lucky person who plays along with us in this challenge will win a $25 gift certificate provided by our sponsor, Ellen Hutson! The deadline for this challenge is Wednesday, July 13, so make sure you link your entry at the Lawnscaping blog!

Make It Crafty CAS Challenge – July

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new Clean and Simple (CAS) challenge at Make It Crafty!

The theme of the July challenge is to add a moving element to your card. I created a card featuring a “penny slider” accent. There are tons of tutorials on the web for making “penny slider” cards, and it wasn’t as hard as I thought to make one. I probably used more foam tape and squares than what’s needed, but I wanted to ensure that the card wasn’t off balance and was supported across the front.

My featured image is Make It Crafty’s “Carefree Elise” digital stamp. Because she is so detailed, I didn’t want the rest of the card to overshadow her. The sentiment is from one of many stamps in my collection.

100_6149wmFor more examples of the challenge theme and the details on this challenge, stop by the Make it Crafty blog and look for the challenge graphic on the right-hand side!

Our challenge runs through the month of July, so there’s plenty of time to challenge yourself and play along with us! We can’t wait to see your entries!

Before I go,  I’d like to mention that this will be my last challenge with Make It Crafty. I resigned from the team with a heavy heart, as I feel that my next semester of college will leave me with little time for crafting, since it will include a part-time internship and more difficult classes.

Thanks to Zoe for giving me the opportunity to create in the clean and simple style with her fabulous Make It Crafty rubber stamps, chipboard and digis! Thanks also to the fabulously talented group of gals on the Make It Crafty team for being so wonderful and warm and welcoming. I feel super lucky to have been part of the team with all of you!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your week is off to a great start!

Lawnscaping Challenge #132

Hi, everybody! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to make something new for Lawnscaping Challenge #132, which starts today!

Today I’m sharing a pair of cards I made for Father’s Day – one for my Dad (the one on the left) and one for my Father-In-Law (the one on the right):

100_6129wm

Our theme for challenge #132 is “Distress Maniacs,” which means we’d like to see some sort of distressing (or Distress-brand product) in your project. I chose to rough up the wood panels I stamped for each card. I only have one Distress Ink pad, so I stamped the pond on my Dad’s card with that one.
