Spring Lawnscaping Blog Hop!!


/


Welcome one, welcome all to the Spring Lawnscaping Blog Hop!!! I am soooo excited to be part of this awesome hop, you have no idea! I heart Lawn Fawn and Lawnscaping challenges like woah! :) This month's theme is all about Spring! The hop runs from Friday, April 6th - Sunday, April 8th! Now sit back and relax and be prepared to be inspired. We have lots of designers on this hop so we want to make sure you have time to see them all! You have the whole weekend to hop along.... 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 challenges home page.

If you're already on your way along the hop you should have arrived here from the talented: Vicky Papaioanno

If this is where you're beginning the hop, I urge you to do the entire hop as there will be some awesome prizes for those who comment! If you'd like to start from the beginning of the hop just click on the blog hop badge at the top of this blog entry or the one in my side bar. It will take you to the lawnscaping blog which has the full list hops.

The blog hop is sponsored by Lawn Fawn and The Sweet Stamp Shop!!



And here's the card I made for the hop featuring Lawn Fawn stamps. I used Chevron Backdrops and Gnome Sweet Gnome.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Your next stop along the hop is the talented: Karin Akesdotter

Inky and glittery fingers for all!

ETA: So sorry I didn't add a description of what I used for the card. Didn't know if there would be much interest because it was such a long hop. The papers I used were Studio Calico Kraft, Amy Tangerine Yes Peas, American Crafts Silver Lining Vellum Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Paper.

Copic Markers (off the top of my head): Skin E00, E000, E11, R20. Mushroom House: E25, E31, E47, E57, R35, R46. Hat: E31, E30, and I think E34 Pants: B00, BG000 Shirt: I think it was G14 and G99 or G94.

Ink: Versa Mark for the chevrons and Memento Tuxedo Black for the sentiment, gnome, and mushroom home.

Gnome's Beard: I added some Liquid Applique in white to it and heated it with my heat tool, then layered on a smidge more just to smooth out any bumpy bits.

Thank you all so much for all the kind words, my crafty ego is almost at max capacity! :)

Also entering this into the Lawnscaping challenge for coloring. :)
