Monochromatic card


Just popping in to show you a new card I made for the current Lawnscaping Challenge . And this time is a difficult one because it's about making a monochromatic project, something quite challenging for someone like me who LOVES colors:

And here is my blue card:

I made my own striped paper by cutting paper strips out of blue and white cardstock and then adhered them to the card base. For the coloring I used just two copic markers, BG00 and BG02, and the sentiment was stamped using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Finally, I adhered a few blue sequins with glossy accents.

I hope you like it and thanks for visiting my blog!!


- Papers: Bazzil cardstock
- Stamps: Lawn Fawn Admit One
- Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
- Tools: paper trimmer, corner punch
- Others: sequins

Shaker card

Hello everybody!! The current Lawnscaping Challenge  is about using some of our favorite things in our project:

And here is the card I made using a few of my faves: Lawn Fawn Pink Lemonade paper, neon sequins, the 'happy birthday' sentiment from Year One mini set (the first Lawn Fawn set I purchased) and my Uniball white gel pen (an absolute must-have for all crafters, it has so many uses ...)
I must say this is my first shaker card and I'm sure it won't be the last one, they're so much fun!
Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Paper pieced birthday card


It's time to share another card I've made for the  Lawnscaping Challenge. This week is about one of my favorites techniques, paper piecing:

I must confess that this time I've had some trouble to get inspired, I really don't  know why because it's a very versatile technique and it works great with many of the stamps I own. But finally I came up with an idea I liked using the cotton candy stamp included in Lawn Fawn's Admit One set:

All the patterned papers are from the Pink Lemonade collection by Lawn Fawn, as well as the hemp cord (an absolute fave of mine!)

I stamped the sentiment from Year One mini set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and, to add some interest to the card base, I created a flower pattern with one of the tiny flowers from Mother's Day mini set and Hero Arts Passion Flower ink, in order to get a tone on tone look.

I hope you like my card, thank you so much for your visit!
