Lawnscaping Challenge #144

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new Lawnscaping challenge! I hope you’ll join in this one, as unfortunately, it is our last!

After five wonderful years of challenges inspired by the FABULOUS line of Lawn Fawn stamps, papers, inks, and accents, we’re wrapping up our final challenge with the theme of Christmas (or any other holiday you celebrate at this time of year)!

I made this card with stamps from Lawn Fawn‘s Winter Alpaca and Baaah Humbug sets:

The plaid paper is from the Perfectly Plaid Christmas petite paper pack. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of wood veneer tape. The tree is from the Cheery Christmas stamp set. I added some sequins to the tree and gave the critters some fluff with Liquid Applique (heated to puff it up).

Lawnscaping Challenge 138

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new Lawnscaping challenge, and this time, we’re inspired by geometric shapes of all kinds!

I chose this vintage (read: very much retired) “Hello Sunshine” Lawn Fawn paper that I chose for this challenge because of the tiny hearts, circles, and stars in the background.

I also used the “Winter Unicorn” and “Believe in Yourself” sets. I thought it would be a fun take on an inspirational card!

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!

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 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.

Lawnscaping Challenge #130

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new Lawnscaping challenge (#130), and we’re grabbing our glitter, sequins and sparkly things for this one!

On today’s card, I chose critters from Lawn Fawn‘s “Party Animal” and “Holiday Party Animal” sets and die-cut the word “thanks” with the “Scripty Thanks” die  from a sheet of glitter paper. I also die-cut the same word from a sheet of cork to give it a little bit of dimension, and adhered the cork layer to the back of the glittered one.

I positioned the die cut so that it looks like the critters are holding it like a banner. I finished the card front by heat embossing a sentiment from the “Pizza My Heart” stamp set on black cardstock, then cut it into a banner shape.

Lawnscaping Challenge #129

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

It’s Finals Week for me, and I’m wrapping up the semester with my last test tomorrow. I worked ahead in my other classes, and it made things so much easier!

This week, we’re “Calling All Critters” with our new challenge! I put together a barnyard bash with Lawn Fawn‘s “Critters on the Farm” and used party hats and a sentiment from the “Party Animal” set:

100_6107wm

I masked everything except for the party hats, which I fussy cut and layered on top of the critters’ heads. Before I stamped the scene, I laid out the uninked stamps and layered them to figure out which images needed a mask.

To make the red and white patterned paper, I used the “Gingham Backdrops” set. I used regular watermark ink when I stamped the pieces of confetti on plain kraft cardstock because I wanted to add something to the cardstock, but I didn’t want the background to overshadow the main scene.

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, May 11, so make sure you link your entry at the Lawnscaping blog!
