Lawnscaping Challenge 90: Critters Galore!

Welcome back to another Lawnscaping Challenge! This time we are going to make use of all of the amazing critters that Lawn Fawn offers!





We are sponsored by the always amazing Lawn Fawn


For my creation, I used A Birdie Told Me, Critters in the Arctic, Love You A Latte and Love You S'more!


I used the scarf that was on the bunny in the Critters in the Arctic and just trimmed it down so it fit onto the bird.

I hope you'll play along with us!

Art Kure: Landmark Collection

Hi!
Have you seen the newest Art Kure sets that are available in the Crafter's Companion store? They are awesome.  The collection focuses on landmarks all across the U.S.!

For this card, I worked with the Bethesda Angel Fountain and paired it up with some of the A Little Bit Oriental Papers.  I also die cut a few extra sheets using my Die'sire Essentials: Rectangles die.  I love the look of the chevrons being slightly 'off.'




I colored in the image with my Spectrum Noir Markers (TB1, IG2, LG2, LG3, IG4, BT1, BT2, Blender were used).  I love, love, love mixing my greens and greys to create a realistic effect when it comes to stuff like this.  So fun!

To give it a more weathered and vintage feel, I also used some Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the image.


I'm not going to lie - I totally chose this image to work with becuase it reminded me of a Doctor Who episode that takes place in New York... Sadly, that's the first thing I thought of when I saw the release.  :)

So.. that means I have a TON of ideas on how to use this image and this won't be the last time you see it here on the ol' blog!

Thanks for stopping by!

Let's Meet Up!

Hi! Happy Sunday!

I think that the triceratops is sooo cute! I had him kinda hanging off the corner, sneaking on in.  I used Rock SolidLivin' Fossils and Now You See Me.

Livin' Fossil

Hi! For this card, I decided to go all Distress-y.  Once I was done coloring in the image and the sentiment was stamped (I used Livin' Fossil and Prehistoric), I grabbed some Distress Ink and painted, stamped and the crumbled and ripped up the paper.  Do you like the result? I figured Dinos = Old = Distressing.  :)

Art Kure:Landmark Collection Sneak

Hi! I have a super fun sneak peek for you! There are some new sets in the Art Kure: Landmark Collection from Crafter's Companion coming out!  I used the Statue of Liberty set for this card.  I kept it clean and simple, but there are clouds embossed in that background (using the 6x6 Embossalicious Clouds folder).


Then, I used some Broken China Distress Ink around the edges and I colored everything in using my Spectrum Noir Markers (LG2, LG3, TN3, TN4, TN6, TN7, JG1, JG6, DG3, DG4, IG1).  My base has the Pearl Shimmering cardstock adhered to it, just to give it that extra pop!

Sweet September Release

Hi!
I'm really not sure how September crept up so quickly.  Am I the only one that still thinks it should be July?!?!

Anyways, today I have some fun cards to share with you that feature brand spankin' new sets that are out from Sweet Stamp Shop TODAY!

My first card features the new Baby Town set.  This release is amazing - there are a whole group of "town" sets that were made for each other.  All Sweet Stamp sets work well together, but these are amazing! I kept this one pretty CAS and I did have someone special in mind when I created it (I have a few friends that are expecting - yay!).  I just love that little shop and the banner!!! Oh, and how about that baby bootie I used as a prop? That was my daughter's, from FIVE years ago (*sniff, sniff*).



Another set that came out is the Thank You set.  It includes several different ways to say "Thank You," even in other languages!

I wanted to make something bright and fun for a thank you card.  And even though the cardstock base is black, I can just cut a white panel to stick inside with my hand-written thank you note.  I love using black bases - it really makes bright colors POP!


I used some translucent embossing paste along with Distress Inks for that background.  :)


This is just a teeny-tiny sample of the creations that are out there for the new September Release! Want to see more??? I know you do! Just head on over to the Sweet Blog to see more!!!!
