Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #5!
I am REALLY excited about this one.
It's super-challenging, but I also think it's the most fun.
It forces you to really think outside the box and use
your stamps in ways you might not have ever imagined.
But once you do, it will open your eyes
to so many possibilities and new ideas!
The prize this go-round is fabulous.
Especially with all the adorable new Lawn Fawn
stamp sets releasing next week.
You just might pick one up for free!
So, I bet you're curious to see the card, right?
I decided to take the bear and the igloo from
Critters in the Snow and turn it into a Happy Spring card.
To get my textured cave and mountain,
I spritzed some Bazzill cardstock with water,
crumpled it up good and tight, and unfolded it.
I spritzed it again with just a light mist of perfect pearls
to give it just a hint of shimmer, like mineral deposits.
After it was dry, I ran it through my Cuttlebug to flatten it out.
I tore up the tan piece into a mountain-like shape,
then stamped the igloo on the back of the gray
and cut just above the outline to make it slightly larger.
I cut out a little opening and filled it with a scrap of black.
For my background, I drew some clouds onto
Inkadinkado masking paper, cut them out and adhered,
then did some distressing to create my grass and sky.
Some punched flowers became my crocuses,
and all that was left was to wake up my bear from hibernation!
