Loads of Birthday Fun! {Lawn Fawn}



Hello there!  Today I have a fun card that I am sharing on the Lawnscaping Blog, that mixes and matches a bunch of my favorite Lawn Fawn stamp sets!

To start my card, I diecut a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper with the largest die in the Large Stitched Rectangles Stackables die set. I challenged myself to use a color combo that seems to be everywhere lately - Mint and Coral.  Truth by told, I don't love these colors (I'm probably the only one on the planet that feels this way LOL!), which is why I challenged myself.  I watercolored a background with Cracked Pistachio and Pumice Stone distress inks.  A while back, I saw a polka dot washer and dryer on Pinterest, and I couldn't wait to recreate it by paper piecing the washer from the Loads of Fun stamp set with some Lawn Fawn patterned paper!  I stamped and colored a bunch of other images from that set and die cut them with the coordinating dies.  Inspired by one of the sentiments in the stamp set, I decided to create a birthday card, and pulled out my Party Animal stamp set, and I will never turn down the opportunity to use the Baaah Humbug sheep.  He's the cutest!  I played around with placement, and adhered some pieces with a glue pen, and others popped up with foam tape.  Finally, I glued the panel to a white card base.

Loads of Birthday Fun!

I am quite happy with how this turned out.  I sure to love mixing and matching my Lawn Fawn stamps, especially when it's an unlikely combination.  Stretching your stamps = more bang for your buck!

Hope you like!  That's all for me today!  Thanks for stopping by! :)
