Lawnscaping Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

And welcome to stop number 8 on the Lawnscaping coffee bloghop. I'm soooo excited to be taking part, as I've never done anything like this before! Anyway, let's get started....

Clicking on the image below will take you to the original blog post on the Lawnscaping blog:



So, next I'll show you the card I created. I used the Love You a Latte and Love n Breakfast stamp sets from Lawn Fawn to create my coffee themed love note card:


I started off with a 5 x 5 card base I made from Nennah Solar White 110lb cardstock. I then used papers from the Kiss Kiss collection to to create the layers of my card. The coffee cup and donut, from the Love You a Latte stamp set, were stamped onto more Neenah cardstock with Tuxedo black Momento ink and coloured with Copic Markers. Next I fussy cut them and adhered hem to my card with foam tape.


I die-cut the varios layers for my card using the Small Stitched Square Stackables dies from Lawn Fawn and one of the Polaroid Fun dies from Mama Elephant. I created dimension by adhereing the various layers with more foam tape. The seniment stamped on the polaroid die cut is from the Love n Breakfast stamp set from Lawn Fawn and was stamped using Tuxedo Black ink.


Finally I added enamel dots and hearts from the Just Sayin' collection from My Minds Eye. I then added some mini flare from Dear Lizzy and added sparkle to the coffee mug and dohnut with my Zig Wink of Stella clear gliter marker.

So now to some important details about how to win some prizes!!!!! First of all please checkout the websites for the amazing sponsors for the hop. I'll list them below with links to their websites:
