Make It Crafty February CAS Challenge

Hi, everybody, and happy February! It’s time for a new Clean and Simple challenge at Make It Crafty!

Thanks to everyone who entered the January “No Image” CAS challenge! I know that because we all love to color Make It Crafty’s fabulous digi and rubber stamp images, we didn’t have many players last time, but we did have several brave players who took on the challenge and made some fabulous cards!

Our challenge for this month is “Splats.” I used a few of my Copic reinkers to make a background and dropped ink in a few different colors on plain white card stock. My main image is the Levana Lover Letter digi, and the sentiment is one of the phrases from the new “Outlined Words With Love” chipboard set!

Lawnscaping Challenge 123

Happy February! The snow is slowly melting here in northern Virginia, and I hope that means we’re done for the season.  Are you ready for a new Lawnscaping challenge? It’s time to kick off a new one, and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we’re inspired by the theme of “Sending LOVE”!

I’m featuring some stamps from Lawn Fawn‘s classic “Love ‘n Breakfast” set on today’s card:

I kept the design simple with a background panel of paper from the “Let’s Polka in the Dark” petite paper pack. I chose to have heart-shaped toast popping out of the toaster instead of the regular-shaped slices of bread.

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, February 10, so make sure you link your entry at the Lawnscaping blog!

Lawnscaping Challenge 122

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge (#122), and we’re incorporating watercoloring into our projects! Thank you to everyone who played along with us in the “Winter Wonderland” challenge! We loved your chilly creations!

I’m not really comfortable working with watercolors, so I just used them for the background behind the sentiment.

My original idea was to use the die cut as a stencil and heat emboss the sentiment, but it didn’t seem to stand out enough. So, I tried outlining the letters with a black pen and it went a little overboard, so I glued the die cut over the embossed part and thought it looked a lot better!

The rest of the card came together fairly easily. I stamped stars from the Lucky Stars set in a few different colors of neon ink, then stamped the outline stamps over the solids in black. I stamped and heat embossed the other part of the sentiment on smooth black card stock and layered a small strip of silver glitter paper over that.

Lawnscaping Challenge 121

Hi, everybody! I’m excited to announce that I’ve “moved up” to the Lawnscaping Challenge Design Team starting with today’s challenge (#121)!

Our theme for this challenge is “Winter Wonderland.” Usually there’s snow on the ground this time of year at my house, but I’m perfectly fine with getting a break from it this winter!

I featured the sweet “Winter Alpaca” on today’s card, and mirror stamped it so I could have two of them facing each other. I added the fluff with some Liquid Applique. (It puffs up when you heat it, so it’s perfect for alpaca hair/wool/fur.)

The papers are from the Let’s Bokeh in the Snow petite paper pack. I also used the Stitched Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts to make the snowy hills and the Toboggan Together stamp set for the sentiment.

MiC January CAS Challenge

Hi, everybody! I hope the new year is off to a great start for you! I’m still on a bit of a break from school, and it has been nice to get some extra crafting time. I’m mostly using the time to work ahead on my design team assignments, so I don’t feel so rushed when it’s time for classes again!

Thanks to everyone who entered the December challenge at Make it Crafty, “Cut Out Color Pop”!  I can’t wait to see what everyone creates for this one, because it was definitely a challenge for me!

We all love to color Make It Crafty’s fabulous digi and rubber stamp images, so it may come as a shock to you that our CAS challenge this month is “No Image”!
100_5967wm

I used chipboard pieces from MiC as a stencil to create the background, and one of the words from the Doodle Celebrate Word Chipboard set for the sentiment and a stamp from my stash for the word “happy.”

I’ll have a new card to share with you on the Make it Crafty inspiration blog on January 9th, and I’d love it if you stopped by to say hello!

Lawnscaping FIT December Hop!

Hi, everybody! It’s time for our monthly Facebook Inspiration Team blog hop at the Lawnscaping Challenges blog! You’ve probably arrived here from Kim’s blog, but in case you’re starting here, you can find the full list of the blogs in today’s hop at the bottom of my post!

This month’s hop is once again being sponsored by The Ink Road! We’ll pick a winner from all of the comments left on our hop to receive a $25 gift certificate to The Ink Road! (The more you comment on the blogs in the hop, the more chances you have to win!)

Our inspiration color for this month’s hop is EVERGREEN, so I made a clean and simple style Christmas card with the “Deck the Halls” set and stamped the branches over and over in the shape of a wreath on a sheet of wood veneer:

The sentiment is from the “Toboggan Together” set. I attached some sequins to the wreath to add some dimension and a simple accent.

Lawnscaping Challenge #120

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new Lawnscaping challenge! Our theme for this challenge is “Christmas”, and I wanted to make something different than a card, so I made these gift bags with the Goodie Bag die:

100_5951wm

I used some stamps from Lawn Fawn‘s “Party Animal” and “Toboggan Together” sets on the green bag. On the red bag, I used the Mini Snowflakes Lawn Cuts on the top sheet and layered a sheet of glitter paper between the top sheet  and the card stock bag to give it a little sparkle.

100_5953wm

I bought a bunch of small hand sanitizers when they were on sale and found that two of them fit perfectly inside of the goodie bag. I think it would be great for a quick gift or stocking stuffer.
