Love You Tons - Lawnscaping Challenge #106

Hello! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #106! This round we are all about stretching ourselves and trying something new! That's the ultimate challenge, don't you think? Stepping out of your comfort zone and just going for it?

The technique that I'd been wanting to try was the increasingly popular no-line coloring. And let me tell you, friends, it is harder than it looks! But definitely worth it in the end. The end result has such a soft and pretty quality to it. I combined the big elephant from Lawn Fawn's Critters In The Jungle with one of the little elephants from Love You Tons.

We want to extend a huge thanks to our dear (deer?) friends at Lawn Fawn for sponsoring us with a FREE stamp set of our winners choice! Please head over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other incredible design team samples and link up your projects to play along!

Enjoy Your Day - Lawnscaping Challenge #105

Happy Monday, friends! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #105: Watercolors! Watercoloring just happens to be one of my most favorite techniques so I am super excited to help bring it to you for our next challenge. 

Since I hadn't had a chance to use my Lawn Fawn Let's Play stamps and dies yet at all, they were definitely calling my name. And my favorite image of all in that set is the squirrel, so I decided to make him the feature of my card and give him a couple friends. Scribbling Distress Markers on an acrylic block and picking it up with a damp paintbrush is one of my favorite methods of watercoloring, so that is what I did here. I tried really hard to make it look like a beautiful cloudy day on my background and ended up being really happy with the results. I hope you like it too!

Roaring Good Birthday - Lawnscaping Challenge #104

Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge 104! We have got an awesome sketch for you today that I know is going to inspire many of you to create something completely awesome. Take it literally, tip it on its side, spin it around, use it as your diving board. We can't wait to see your take on it!

For my card, I rotated it one turn to the right and translated the circle into window. Lawn Fawn's Critters In The Jungle is definitely the star of my show, but I also pulled in the stone and my sentiment from Critters On The Savanna.

Huge thanks to Lawn Fawn for sponsoring our challenge with a FREE stamp set to our winner! Head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing design team samples and don't forget to sketch it out and play along!

Thanks A Bunch

Hey friends! Well, it's been a busy few days but I finally got the opportunity to film a new video. This adorable Lawn Fawn Critters In The Jungle stamp set has been sitting on my desk for weeks just waiting to get some love. I've colored my images with a mix of Copics and Spectrum Noir markers so you can see some comparisons in the video. No matter which you prefer, they both offer such great results. I hope you enjoy the video!

I'd like to enter this card in The Color Throwdown #338 as I definitely used that color palette as my inspiration. And in the Virginia's View Challenge #14 Layers and Dimension.

Missed You - Lawnscaping Challenge #103

Hi friends! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #103! This round is all about dimension - texture, layers, whatever you like. I chose to make my little scene with lots of foam tape to create the look of depth. Lawn Fawn's adorable Sending Hedgehugs seem right at home in the Gleeful Gardens, don't they? With the Grassy Border below and the puffy Spring Showers clouds above, all that was needed was a sweet sentiment from Just My Type Too.

Special thanks to the wonderful Ellen Hutson, LLC for sponsoring us with a $25 gift certificate to her store to our lucky winner.

Please stop by the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to see the rest of the design team's amazing dimensional projects. And don't forget to link up your own and play along!

You've Got A Friend In Me

Hi friends! Today I got to play with this adorable Mama Elephant Ella & Friends stamp set and I got to film a video too! As soon as I saw that cute little bunny, I thought he would look so fun chasing butterflies, so I combined this set with In My Heart. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

To watch the video in HD, click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right. And don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe! Thanks for watching!

I would also like to enter this in Virginia's View Challenge #14 Layers and Dimension. This is a challenge I've been wanting to enter for some time, and it was right in line with what I wanted to make today. And also in the Mama Elephant Stamp With ME Challenge: Make Me Laugh. Even though this isn't a laugh out loud funny card, that bunny chasing butterflies definitely gives me a chuckle. ;)

You Make Me Happy, Ellie

Hi friends! I finally got some time today to play with some new goodies and at the top of my list was this Ellie stamp and die set from Avery Elle. I had also recently picked up two new Distress Markers: Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral so I new some watercoloring was in order! I added in some Pumice Stone for Miss Ellie and her bunny friend, topped it all off with some Hello Sunshine 6x6 papers from Pink Paislee and the fantastic Stitched Duo 3 die from Pretty Pink Posh and finished up in time to play along in the latest Avery Elle Challenge. I hope you like it!

Also linking this up to the super fun The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge, which I've been so enjoying!
