lawnscaping and simon says stamp challenges

Finally got some time to play with my new stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  Decided to play along for this week’s Simon Says Stamp’s Challenge (Let’s play bingo – top line across: Ribbon/twine, Gems, Glitter/Sparkle) and for this week’s Lawnscaping Challenge:

Although Christmas is over, Christmas cards are my favorite to make, so, here is another Christmas card:

I inked the debossed side of a Sizzix embossing folder with distress ink and embossed it using my Cuttlebug.  Then I spritzed it with water mixed with perfect pearl. I stamped the two large ornaments from Ornate Ornaments stamp set from Lawn Fawn onto clear transparency and cut them out.  I then added lots of Martha Stewart Glitter on the back using Glossy Accents.  I used dimensional adhesive to pop up the ornaments.  The sentiment is also from Ornate Ornaments.  I used white embossing powder to make it stand out on the red cardstock.  For the final finishing touches, I added baker’s twine, pearl gems, and used a white gel pen for the faux stitching around the sentiment.

I love how this card turned out~ (a rare thing for me!)  It is so sparkly!  Here are a couple of closeups of the ornaments.  Can’t quite capture the glitter, but I love it so. 🙂


I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas weekend!
