Lawnscaping Challenge #97: Winter

Hi, everybody! Since it’s the first Monday of the month, it’s time for a new Lawnscaping challenge
One of the many things I love about Lawn Fawn stamps is the ability to mix and match images from different sets, and it’s something that you’ll see me do often when I create with them!
Our challenge for the next two weeks is inspiration-photo based, so it was fun to put a wintery card together with “Critters in the Arctic“, “Into the Woods“, “Love You a Latte“, and “Woodgrain Backdrops“:
I was inspired by the colors in the photos, the logs, the critters and the snow. I stamped the woodgrain pattern on some smooth grey card stock to make a custom background, and picked papers from the “Sweater Weather“, “Peace Joy Love” and the “Into the Woods” petite paper packs.
Here’s the challenge graphic, and you should be able to click on the photo for a closer look at the images:

And, we have a new sponsor for our challenges in 2015: Ellen Hutson

One lucky winner from this challenge will receive a $25 store credit to ellenhutson.com, a one-stop shop with TONS of the latest paper craft supplies!

I’ll be back on the Lawnscaping blog next Monday with a sweet project featuring Lawn Fawn‘s “Bugs and Kisses” stamp set and the Goodie Bag Lawn Cuts metal die!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope your week (and year) is off to a great start! I’m recovering from a particularly nasty cold that I caught over Christmas, and it’s so good to be able to breathe normally again!

A Foxy Challenge at Moxie Fab World!

Hey there, crafty friends! I’m stopping in this evening to share my card for the new Foxy Foxes Challenge at Moxie Fab World! My friend Thanh challenged me to join her in playing along with the challenge, so here’s what I made with a few of my Some Odd Girl stamp sets and some Simple Stories paper and stickers. 

I dressed both foxes with accessories from the “Preppy Pups” and “Hipster Pets” clear stamp sets. The fox on the right is also from the “Hipster Pets” set, and the fox on the left is “Foxy.”
My card was inspired by this fun picture of Thanh & me from CHA this past January that we took at the Elmer’s booth. (You might remember that I shared this picture before on my blog.) A lady who stopped by the Some Odd Girl Stamps booth was kind enough to lend Thanh her foxy scarf for our photo:
The deadline for this challenge is midnight EST on Sunday, September 14th, so there’s still time for you to join in the fun! You can find all of the guidelines and link up your entry at Moxie Fab World!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed my card and are inspired to create something foxy, too!

Hugs,
