O-Fish-Ally Awesome- Lawnscaping Challenge #

Hello and happy Monday!

Just stopping in for another quick post for the awesome Lawnscaping Challenge, for challenge #136 in which we need to make a card with a "punny sentiment". How fun, right?

 So, using Lawn Fawn's adorable Dad + Me stamp/die set and my Copics, I created this card:
I created the card panel using my Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle in PTI's Stamper's Select cardstock. The Hawaiian Shores cardstock strip that was threaded through PTI's Scene It: Scalloped Tag Base Die. On that I layered the Scene It Backer and then die cut the Scene It Mountain View Dies, which I sponged with distress ink. Then I set up the scene with various stamps/dies from the Dad + Me set and then I die cut the cloud, which I sponged with Hawaiian Shores ink, from Lawn Fawn's Yay Kites set.

 I finished the card off with the punny sentiment stamped in Lawn Fawn's Black Licorice onto a stitched banner, added some matching enamel dots and...I'm done! :) I had such fun making this card and coloring these cute little critters, I hope you will enjoy it too!

Thanks for stopping by and as always your comments are super appreciated! Have a wonderful, craft-filled week!

Loads of Fun Shaker Card

Hello and I hope you've had a wonderful beginning of your week, so far! I'm just stopping by with a quick post for this week's Lawnscaping Challenge, sponsored by Lawn Fawn:
 So here is my interpretation of "Pattern Palooza": 

 I had so much fun creating this girly card for one of my (many) nieces! Seriously, I have 9 nieces and 10 nephews, but I digress...Hehe. So, my card began with this beautiful, patterned paper from Lawn Fawn and from this I pulled the colors and fun style. I love this stamp set and had such fun stamping the various faces on the undergarments!

I added other details such as glossy accents on the washer's knobs and around the bottom portion of the heat embossed sentiment, I stamped in PTI's Hawaiian Shores the tiny hearts, which are included in the set to decorate the clothes and such
A mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noirs were used to color the images and they were finished off with a very liberal slithering of Clear Wink of Stella. And finally, sequins from Pretty Pink Posh's Spring mix were added for some subtle"bling"...though I believe that is actually an oxymoron, haha. 
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by the Lawnscaping Challenge for more gorgeous and inspiring cards! 

Until next time...craft on!
