Lawnscaping Challenge #89: One Layer

Happy Monday!!
I'm a little late this time with my post, sorry!! I'm full of work these days! But I'm finally here with my project to inspire you to join us in the new Lawnscaping Challenge: One Layer!

I know most of you are not fans of one layer cards, to be honest, I'm not a fan either. If you check my cards you will notice that I always use layers and layers... Anyway I think you must give this challenge a try because it's a true challenge and true challenges are really fun!

I made a simple card with Summer still in mind ;) I love that s'more stamp and it's my first time using it, I combined it with Woodgrain Backdrops for a natural look. Now the little s'mores have their cheeks colored too with a bit of pink but I had no time to take again the picture, ugh! You would have to believe me, they look more cute now hee hee!


C'mon, join us! And remember, just one piece of cardstock is allowed: the card base :) For more inspiration check the amazing DT projects on the Lawnscaping blog!

Thank "you are a hoot" Tags - LF release week

Welcome to the last post of Lawn Fawn August release week, tomorrow is the big day when all  the new products will be available to purchase! yay!!

So it's the turn of the new set of the tag series: Thank You Tags which is another great coordinating set for Tag You're it!. Also the mini You're a Hoot (the one created as a gift for past year's Black Friday) will be part of this release and we're playing with it too.

I made a card and a tag using both sets, for the card I used the new note cards in Butternut, I love the woodgrain pattern!! And combined it with the small tag and stitched journaling card

You're a Hoot

I used the big tag of Thank You Tags and combined it with the new papers from Sweater Weather. To finish of the package, I used some May Arts ribbon, Peppermint twine and those cute leaves. I love that the new wood veneers have the same shape that the stitched leaves from last year. I combined both and colored them with Copics. I hope you like it!!

Thanks tag

Here's a closer look, as you can see I used my Copics to add some shadow to the stamped owl and leaves, I love how this adds more dimension :)

Lawn Fawn release week continues today featuring a Fall stamp set, Sweater Weather that coordinates with the new Fall paper collection.
It's fun and versatile and it includes one of my favorite single stamps from the release: That gorgeous frame... I'm in love!!

I started with Argyle Backdrops and created this card, of course I had to use the frame!! And because the font used in this set is the same that in the new Finley's ABCs dies, I wanted to create my own sentiment combining both :)

Yep, those two cuties are wishing you a happy day!! I love using new and old stuff together!!

Happy Day

Sweater Weather collection - LF release week

Hi and Happy Monday!!
Today is the 4th day of Lawn Fawn Fall/Winter release week and it's all about paper! Ok and fun coordinating embellishments ;)

We're featuring the new Fall paper collection, Sweater Weather and coordinating flair, twine and wood veneer, yes! Wood veneer! I looooove those cute little wooden leaves :D
And this whole collection... What can I say? It's cozy!! I love the sweet colors and the inclusion of dark blue and green so so yummy! And the patterns are perfect for Fall!

Ok, here's my project, I couldn't help myself and I added a bit of everything (oh! no! there's no wood leaves here! But I made a project using them that I will share soon :))

I'm not a scrapbooker girl, you know it. Said that, I love to use journaling cards on my cards, they are so cute! So I cut one from the 12x12 paper collection with the Stitched journaling card and another one with the big tag die for my sentiment.

Cozy Days

I love the paper pieced bear from Love You S'more all ready for a cooler weather with that scarf, that I borrowed from Snow Day hee hee

Cozy Days - detail

For a finishing touch I added that sweet flair that I think that matches greatly the feeling of the card and put some glossy accents on the heart to continue with the shine of the flair.

Don't forget to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration from the DT, a great project and video from Kelly and of course, an amazing giveaway!

Spooktacular new dies! - LF release week

Hi everyone!!
Welcome to the second day of the Lawn Fawn Fall/Winter release week!

Today we're featuring some new dies. Ooooh they're so amazing, I'm going to use them everywhere lol (not joking) The new Stitched Hillside borders are perfect to build easy and perfect scenes and if you know me, you know I love to create scenes on my cards :)

Another new die is Forest Border, a super cute adition for your scenes and perfect for every time of the year, just change the cardstock color and you have a fall winter or summer border of trees, so cool! I used them in black for my night scene and I love how they look!

I started this card with the idea of a graveyard in mind then it looked too spooky so I added candy everywhere and the little ghost with his bag ready for Halloween treats, is he cute or what?

I'n not going to lie, cutting all those images, specially the little stars without the dies was time consuming!! I'm getting more and more lazy about cutting haha! But I didn't want the little white borders this time :)

Happy Halloween

I hope you like my "spooky" card hee hee! Don't forget to check the Lawn Fawn blog, it's full of amazing projects from the DT, a video and a great giveaway!!
