Lawnscaping Challenge #98 Sponsored by Lawn Fawn

Hi there! I'm here today with a card for our current Lawnscaping challenge. This is #98!! And it's a fun one - create your own background with stamps. I have to admit, this WAS a challenge but I'm so thrilled with the way mine came out. I hope you play along because there is a fab prize from the sponsor, Lawn Fawn, up for grabs.


Now, on to my project! 

For this card, I wanted to use the new set that I think is just too adorable, Lawn Fawn, Bugs & Kisses. For the background, I used the two hearts from the set and the swirl image and went to town creating a fun background. For the larger heart, I used Memento Luxe in Morocco. The smaller heart was stamped in Memento Luxe in Angel Pink, and the swirl is in Delicata, Golden Glitz. It's hard to capture the sparkle the gold gives to the paper, but it's really subtle and pretty!

I used a pink card base and cut my white panel a bit smaller to show that color on the left and right. For the top and bottom of the card, I chose the small hearts on pink from the Lawn Fawn 6x6 Let's Polka Paper Pack. I rounded just the bottom corners.

I took the two bugs and stamped them with Memento, Tuxedo Black onto my Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Coloring Cardstock, colored with my Spectrum Noir Markers, cut them out, setting their little bodies aside. I then stamped the same onto the actual background paper I created. This allows you to see their little legs and antennae, give dimension and not worry about having to cut out so close around the legs and antennae. I then just used some foam adhesive to pop up the bugs.

I added in the smaller heart stamped in Tuxedo Black and colored in with a gold Sharpie and used some foam adhesive. I love the little "love" between the two bugs. 

The sentiment "bugs & kisses" fit this perfectly and I just simply stamped it onto the heart paper at the bottom, making it flush right with the edge of the white cardstock. 

I gave the little girl bug and the "i" in kisses a bit of bling. 

I hope you join us in the challenge!!
