Lawnscaping FIT December Blog Hop


We are counting down the days until Santa arrives here in our house. Being that it's only one more day we have a very excited 5 year old that can't wait! 

Meanwhile, I am in my craft as much as I can prepping for tags and catching up on DT work. Today I am sharing a tag that I created for the Lawnscaping FIT Blog Hop. This is the last post for my term and unfortunately the last post for the Facebook Inspiration Team. You can find out more information on the blog. I loved being a part of this team and will always be honored to be a part of it. 

We are sponsored by The Ink Road. Hop along to each blog and leave a comment for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the online store. 

We were challenged with the color Evergreen and here is how I was inspired. 

I used the Puffy Star Stackables dies from Lawn Fawn and colored it with Forest Moss distress ink. I then used the adorable snowman from Making Frosty Friends and his accessories to make one cute snow friend! I stamped the sentiment from the same set using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I tied Peppermint hemp cord from Lawn Fawn adding two little jingle bells for extra fun! 

Hope you can stop by each of the blogs below to check out what they created and leave a comment.

Lawnscaping Challenges : Merry Christmas

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great holiday season and not experiencing too much stress! 

I am here today to share a card for the last Lawnscaping Challenge of the year! I still can't believe that the year 2016 is right around the corner!! For this challenge, we have created projects for my favorite time of year, Christmas! 

Our challenge is sponsored by the amazing Lawn Fawn!! The winner of this challenge can choose a stamp set of their choice and I can promise you that is going to be a very hard decision! 

I went with a fun and whimsical card using the Critters from the Past set. I just picked up this set a few weeks ago because I have wanted it for a very long time! My youngest son loves and is some what obsessed with dinosaurs right now so this set is perfect for him! 

I stamped all of the images using Memento Black Onyx ink and then colored them in with my Copic markers. I will have to say that I am proud of my coloring here as you can actually see shading and it doesn't look completely ridiculous! I could definitely hang out with a T-rex and Brontosaurus that looked like this. Hee Hee

I framed the card using the Large Stitched Rectangle Dies and then colored the background using Tumbled Glass distress ink. I gave each of the dinosaurs a Santa hat from the Toboggan Together set because that makes total sense, right? Then to make the card even more fun I added ornaments from the Joy to the Woods set to the palm trees. I mean I'm sure someone has done this in Florida! I think one of my favorite parts of the card is the sentiment also from Toboggan Together and Critters from the Past! My 15 year old got a kick out of this card and even went as far to send a Snapchat to his friends. I figured if he shared it with his friends that it has to be good!!
I finished off the card by adding Peppermint Lawn Trimmings hemp cord around the top of card. 

I hope that you have enjoyed this card today and were inspired to create something and enter for a chance to win. I know we all have a lot going on but take some time for yourself and have fun!!
