Lawnscaping Challenge No. 58 – Clean and Simple

Lawnscaping Challenge No. 58I am so excited!  This is the first Lawnscaping Challenge I have been a part of  (I hope I did everything right). The Lawnscaping Challenge No. 58 is clean and simple.  When Lawn Fawn had their release this month I was so excited to see that they added die cuts (lawn cuts) for the Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set.  I love love love this stamp set. Check it out!  The gnome is so stinking cute and I just love the little bees (I will be making a card highlighting those next week).

For the card that I made for this challenge I wanted to use craft paper and simple, bright colors.  I wanted to set the scene with beautiful bright flowers from the Gnome Sweet Gnome set, the Mother’s Day set, and critters in the ‘burbs set and of course the cute little birds.  How fun are they?  I finished it off with the cute Thank You word bubble from the Many Thanks stamp set.  Now I have to find the perfect person to Thank!

What’s your style?  Simple and clean? Or do you like fully embellished projects?



Thanks For Being So Thoughtful

Hello friends!

I have a fun card that I made this weekend.  It highlights some other fun embellishment from Target.  I found the beautiful felt flower chain in the dollar bin.  As soon as I saw it I knew I could make a great card with it, and I was very inspired by a pink and mint combination.  In April, one of the blogs I follow (Capture the Moment) had a Tilted challenge.  I did not participate in the challenge, but I have been inspired ever since.  I really wanted to tilt my embellishments for this card and I think it gives the card a great flow.  I think it is always good to have extra thank you cards on hand and I knew the Lawn Fawn Many Thanks set would be perfect for this card.  The washi tape, poka dot flower, and pink resin flower are all from Pick Your Plum.

Speaking of Pick Your Plum, I have to show off the beautiful Bakers Twin that I got in the mail last week.

Isn’t it just amazing?!  I can’t wait to make something fun with it.  Check back next week to see what fun cards I make with it.

Do you use bakers twine?  If so, how?
