Lawnscaping FIT May Blog Hop

It’s the last Friday of the month, so that means it’s time for the Lawnscaping Challenge Facebook Inspiration Team’s (FIT) Monthly Blog Hop! You’ve probably arrived from Lexa’s blog, but in case you’re starting here, you’ll find the full hop list at the bottom of my post!

TEAL is our inspiration color for this month’s hop, so I made a card with the narwhal in Lawn Fawn’s “Critters in the Arctic” stamp set . The stars are from the “Lucky Stars” stamp set.

I cut a panel from a sheet of teal star patterned paper in the Beachside petite paper pack. The waves are made from strips of white card stock that I cut with the largest of the “Stitched Scallop Borders” Lawn Cuts dies.

I used five different Copic markers (BG15, BG18, BG53, BG57, and BG78) to color the strips so that they’d create an ombre effect when layered. I used a 1/2″ circle punch on the top die cut strip to make the top wave.

PINK is our inspiration color for this month’s hop, so I made a card with Lawn Fawn’s “Best Pun Ever” stamp set and the “Scripty Hello” Lawn Cuts die. The heart-shaped steam is from the “Whale You Be Mine” clear stamp set.

I cut strips of striped paper from the Let’s Polka petite paper packs, lined them up to make a chevron pattern, then adhered them to a thin sheet of card stock before adhering the panel to the front of the card. The sentiment is die cut from a thin sheet of cork.

It MOOSE be Lawn Fawn’s 5th Birthday!

Hi, everybody! I’m joining a few crafty friends today to wish Lawn Fawn a happy 5th birthday!
You may have arrived from Sharna‘s blog, but in case you’re starting here and want to go back to the start of the hop, you’ll find the full hop list at Jenn‘s blog!
One of the many things I love about Lawn Fawn stamps is the ability to mix up the different sets and create different combinations! Since today’s hop is birthday themed, I thought it would be fun to get the moose from Critters in the Arctic dressed up for a party! 
I started by stamping the party hat, then masked it off and stamped the moose. Then, I made masks for the moose’s antlers and stamped the balloons from the Year Four set. I used a black multiliner pen to “tie” the balloons to the antlers.
Then, I colored the images to match the Into the Woods petite paper pad and stamped up a custom sentiment with a few of my Lawn Fawn sets. You can find a full list of the supplies that I used at the bottom of my post. 
Your next stop on the hop is Roxanne‘s blog! Thank you so much for stopping by today! Happy hopping!

This month, the FIT is inspired by reds, so I made this fun card featuring stamps from Lawn Fawn’s “Love You A Latte” and made my own sentiment with the “Milo’s ABC’s” set. The papers are from Lawn Fawn‘s “Snow Day” petite paper pack. I embellished the card with some heart-shaped brads and some Peppermint Lawn Trimmings twine.

Hi, everybody! I’m so excited to be part of the first ever Krafty Friends Blog Hop featuring Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps’ Krafty Friends! The blog hop is filled with creations by customers (like me), design team members and friends of KKS and we’re so excited to share some of our creations!


My card for the hop features “Tabitha,” designed by Annie Rodrigue!

I love purple, but I don’t use it a lot in my crafting. I challenged myself to color Tabitha in shades of purple, and matched my coloring to the paper pad I planned to use (Basic Grey’s Aurora).
