Lawnscaping Challenge #81

I created this card solely for Lawnscaping's new challenge #81 but I'm looking forward to posting it to a family member for their birthday. It's a win-win! :) The challenge was to create a background with stamps.

Here's the card:

Cardstock: Soft Suede and Whisper White.
Ink: Midnight Muse and Soft Suede, Soft Suede marker, Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Stamps: Dad's Day, Year Two and Birthday Tags, all by Lawn Fawn.
Tools and Accessories: Tag, You're It Lawn Cuts dies by Lawn Fawn, baker's twine, dimensional adhesive, ink blending tool.

I normally add blingy bits to my cards but I couldn't make it work for this one. Simple and unadorned it is then!

Dad's Birthday

I made this card for my Dad. He likes the outdoors so I made his card with that in mind. Here's the result:

Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Basic Black, Into the woods petite paper pack by Lawn Fawn.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Salty Ocean, Antique Linen and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, Versamark, Copic markers - Y08, Y00, YR18, YG17, G03, G00, B00, N1, 0, Sakura Stardust gel pen in silver, Versamagic in Cloud White.
Stamps: Happy Trails, Jessie's ABC's, Woodgrain Backdrops, all by Lawn Fawn
Accessories and Tools: Happy Trails Lawn Cuts dies, Stitched Journaling Card Lawn Cuts dies, grey bakers twine, big shot machine, water, finger dauber, Glossy Accents, dimensional adhesive, Post-it notes.

Tips and Tricks:
1. The sky and hill were created using masks cut from Post-it notes.
2. The clouds were created by dabbing white ink on the card with my finger.
3. I flicked water to get the speckled effect.
4. The edges of the stitched journaling card were inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink then I rubbed on some Cloud White Versamagic.

Pleasant Surprise:
1. Lawn Fawn pinned this card on their pinterest page from my flickr feed, yay!! Thanks Lawn Fawn! :)

Girly Baby Shower

Here's a very quick card I made for a friend's baby shower. I was pressed for time and was able to complete this in about 20 minutes though it needed some extra drying time.


Cardstock: Strawberry Slush, Whisper White, Hello Sunshine paper pack by Lawn Fawn.
Ink: Pool Party, Tuxedo Black, Copic markers - YR18, Y00, RV00, Clear Wink of Stella brush marker
Stamps: Plus One by Lawn Fawn
Accessories / Tools: twine from The Twinery, Dazzling Diamonds glitter glue, Hello Sunshine sequins, Glossy Accents, ink blending tool.

The stork and bundle are coated in Wink of Stella to make them sparkle. I glued the sequins on with Glossy Accents. I've recently bought Matte Multi Medium, which, I feel, is much better for the job. If you make a mistake or slip, the matte doesn't show up like Glossy Accents.

Ink: Pool Party, Tuxedo Black, Versamark Dazzle in Champagne, Copic markers - YR18, Y08, B00, R29, YG17, G03, B24, B18, E57, 0
