Lawnscaping Challenge #74: Inspired By...

For today's card, I'm playing along (for the first time ever) with the Lawnscaping Challenge, this one #74.  I love, love, love Lawn Fawn stamps.  They are by far my favorite and I've amassed quite a collection of them.  But today, I'm putting them to use.

For this challenge, we're supposed to pick a Lawn Fawn Design Team Member and make a card inspired by their work.  I knew that I wanted to do something similar this card published a while back on Netter's Notables, Design Team Member Lynette's blog.

I really liked how sweet this card was when I pinned it awhile ago.  So while I used it as my base, I also challenged myself to use only stamp sets I've bought but not used yet.  I was stunned: a) by how many stamp sets I was able to use on one card and b) how many new stamp sets I have.  So I ended up with the Yeti, snowflake and sentiment from Yeti, Set, Go, the banner from Bannerific, the sweet little heart from Bee Mine, and the wood grain from Woodgrain Backdrops. I even used dies from my newest purchases:  Circle Stackables and Scalloped Circle Stackables. 

I colored the yeti ever so slightly with my Spectrum Noir markers then fussy cut him out.  I cut out the circle, stamped and heat embossed some random snowflakes.  I then used Broken China and Weathered Wood Distress Ink to color my circle and finished it off with some hearts stamped in Barn Door.  I cut a frame with my scalloped circle dies.  I stamped the wood grain background on some kraft card stock cut and folded into an A2 card using some Tea Dye Distress Ink.  Then it was  just a matter of stamping my banner and sentiment, a little fussy cutting and adhering it all together with some glue and pop dots.  Then I finished the card off with some sequins form the Peace Joy Love line, a little Glossy Accents on the hearts, some Wink of Stella on the Yeti, and a corner rounder for the bottom edges.
