Lawnscaping Holiday Blog Hop!


Hello Bloglandians! Welcome to my post for the Lawnscaping Blog Hop. As you can see from the badge, we're getting in the holiday spirit! You should have come here from Melania's blog. If not, head on over to the Lawnscaping blog to get started on the hop.

For my card I wanted to try out the Lawn Fawn Cozy Christmas set. I've been eyeing it forever...it is so stinkin' cute! Even my boyfriend thinks that little smiley fire guy is kinda cute. My personal favorite is the smiley Christmas lights. Christmas lights are probably my favorite thing about Christmas....I love having them all over my house, I love seeing them on other people's houses....and I have a weakness for any product with Christmas lights on it! So I wanted to try and stamp these guys out and make them as sparkly and cheery as possible. Here's what I came up with:


Hopefully these guys look like they're hanging down from some snowy eaves. =) Here's a close-up:


I stamped out the lights on some white cardstock, colored them with just a couple shades of Copics on each light, then added silver Stickles to the screw part of the bulb and Stardust Stickles to the tip of each bulb to make them sparkle. I was insane to ever think fussy cutting these guys would be a good idea, but I did it! And I think it may have been worth it. =) The sentiment was from the same set. That's another thing I love about this set, and many Lawn Fawn sets for that matter....the way you can build different sentiments with all the different words. I used "merry" again on the inside to make a different sentiment, plus I had a couple extra lights which didn't make it onto the front:


I think that's all from me! The next stop on the hop is Patricia's blog. Be sure to stop at everyone's blog and leave some comment love...there are some great prizes to be had!

Have fun, and thanks for looking!
