Lawnscaping Challenge No. 89


Welcome to the Lawnscaping Challenge No. 89! As you can see by the above graphic, it's ONE LAYER. That means just one layer. It's definitely a challenge, but I love a good challenge. I hope you play along!

This challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!


I do, I really heart fall. LOTS. I wish it could be fall all year round in my world. So I created this adorable little "I <heart> fall" card using the Lawn Fawn Into the Woods set. I used the sentiment and little acorn from that set.


I inked up the sentiment with Versamark ink and created a simple background with that on my kraft cardstock base. For the one sentiment towards the top, I used Memento ink in Tangelo and colored in the heart on that with my Spica Pen in Black. It's pretty and shimmery in person. 

I stamped the acorn guy in Memento, Tuxedo Black on the card. I colored him in with my Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils and outlined him with a warm grey Spectrum Noir Marker to give him a little highlight. I think I love his little cheeks the best! 

I rounded the bottom two corners of the card and applied Distress Ink in Old Paper and Distress Stain in Vintage Photo. 

I <heart> fall!! 

I encourage you to play with the one layer challenge. It is a challenge and well worth trying out!

Sweet Thoughts Card

Spring is just around the corner, and you can almost smell those flowers. Okay, I'm dreaming, but this card is too cute for words. ...
