Lawnscaping Blog Hop!! 9.9~9.11.2011

Welcome to the first ever Lawnscaping Blog Hop! So glad you are here! You should have come to me by way of Cathy Fongjoyo. This month's theme is magical Holiday projects! The hop runs from Friday, September 9th ~ Sunday, September 11th! Make sure to comment on all of the blogs because there are LOTS of prizes to be won! All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page.
Here are my cards. I made 4 Christmas cards & 1 Hanukkah card! :-)First Card ~ I used Ornaments and stars from new Ornate Ornaments set. I inked only the outlines of the ornaments so that I could stamp penguins & polar bear from Critters in the Snow set inside of the ornaments. I also stamped the ornaments & snowflakes on transparency, heat embossed them, and layered them over the images on the white cs, to give a GLASS look :-) I used glitters for the snow on the ground for penguins ornaments.



Second Card ~ I paperpieced all the ornaments, and heat embossed them. I used tiny gems to make more festive on ornaments! :-) All the ornaments & the sentiment were adhered with pop up glue dots to give more dimention, as well as the first card.

Third & Fourth Cards ~ I couldn't decide which colors I would like, and I made them both! lol :-) The ornament, Ribbon & the hanger are separate stamps. I luv this stamp set. There are even 3 different styles of hangers. You can make any way you like :-) I heat embossed the ornaments & the sentiment. This time, I used the sentiment, stamped the first half on top, and the second half on the bottom. "Merry Christmas" is a long one line sentiment stamp. For both cards, I used Nestabilities to cut the center of the front panel. I attached the focal image on the inside panel. For the white pearl center card, I used Viva decor Pearl pen to put pearls on swirls.

For the Hanukkah card ~ I used the white glossy paper, heat embossed with silver embossing powder (used brilliance ink for the stars, without heat embossing), used 2 distress inks, to get the main panel color. I used Ribbon tag nestabilities for the sentiment, used the same distress inks, adhered with dimentional glue dots. I used glitter for the flames.

Thank you very much for participating in this lawnscaping blog hop & stopping by my blog. :-)
Next head on to Deb Lengyel's blog. If you've gotten off track, don't worry! Head on back to Lawnscaping to see the complete list of designers.

Have a great weekend!! :-)

PS. I'm also submitting the first card to the current Lawnscaping challenge for Embossing Extravaganza.

Editor's note : The card with many little ornaments were featured on one of Fawny Flickr Friday on 9.23.2011.
