Lawnscaping Challenge 115: Sentiments Sponsored by Ellen Hutson

Well, hello there! Welcome back to another Lawnscaping Challenge! This time, we are making the SENTIMENT the star of the show!

The fab Ellen Hutson! is sponsoring this challenge!!! Here is a bit about the store:

Ellen Hutson, LLC began their adventure in November 2006 as an online web store committed to bringing you the finest paper crafting products and related product education. They are always looking to provide their customers with quality products, excellent customer service, and education and inspiration for the products they carry. You can shop with Ellen by clicking HERE. As well please join them to be inspired and learn some fun techniques in the CLASSroom, or stay up-to-date on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and/or Pinterest.

And now, onto my card! I used the Scripty Thanks die and layered upon itself several times.  I've found the best and easiest adhesive to use for intricate die cuts is called Stick It! It's a double sided adhesive sheet that you place on the paper and die cut.  You just pull it off the die cut and boom - your cut is sticky on the back!

I also used some Gansai Tambi watercolors to create the background and I added in a sentiment from the Sweet Smiles set.  I love the mix of the script die and simple font!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today! I hope you will play along with us for a chance to win! This challenge is a lot of fun!

Don't Miss Sara and Crafter's Companion on HSN!

This Wednesday, October 7, 2015, Sara Davies of Crafter's Companion will be on HSN! And she will be sharing some fantastic product (and projects)! This is one of the cards that will be shown.

I used the Die'Sire Edge'ables Fancy Borders: Twinkle Twinkle die along with Shimmering Cardstock: Gold Dust, and Candy Red. Even though this die is technically for the holidays, you can use it any time of year (as I've shown above)! I also added some extra stars using the Die'Sire Essential Dies: Stars die and a sentiment from Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy: Orchid.

For the ribbon, I didn't have the exact color I needed, so I grabbed some plain white and colored it in using my Spectrum Noir FS1 marker to get a good match!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to tune in!!!

Lawnscaping Challenge 114: One Layer Sponsored by Lawn Fawn

Welcome to another Lawnscaping Challenge, the best part of Mondays! Today, we are challenging everyone to make a one layer creation.

We are sponsored by the always amazing Lawn Fawn! Those folks just rock and they are sponsoring this challenge with a free stamp set of the winner's choice!

One layer cards are tough for me.  So, to keep my card interesting, I decided to go with the no-line watercolor technique! I used the adorable Baked with Love set along with Spectrum Aqua markers.

And I finished everything off with a few splatters of ink and some glitter glue!

I hope you will play along with us!!!
