Lawnscaping Challenge No. 85 Summer Color Combo


Hey! It’s Heidi here, and I am so glad to be back to blogging after a big break, which I am going to call “World cup brake” since I’ve been watching the Brazil 2014 World Cup! I am a big futbol fan or soccer as is commonly known in the United States. I was born and raised in South America, so futbol is big part of our culture. Every four years, we love to watch the world cup because the world's best teams meet and we get to see great games and great things! (Occasionally, some bad things as well.) Today was the last game and Germany was the well deserved champion! Congratulations for the Germans!
Mean while in the crafting world: I am very glad to get back to my craft room to create a card for one of my favorite challenges, The Lawnscaping Challenge, which this time is about creating a card or a craft project using the given color palette. I got a few new products, (mostly from Lawn Fawn) so I am very excited to use them! For me this challenge is also about using a new technique: embossing paste. Yep it’s been out for a while but I hadn’t had the opportunity to use it, till now. 
 I really enjoyed making this card; I actually made two of them! It’s so fun to work with inks and using the blending tool, then get to use the embossing paste with stencils, and finally die cutting, which is one of my favorite paper crafting techniques! I hope you’ll really like this card!


Supplies used:
Sentiment stamp: Life is good by Lawn Fawn
Dies; Script thanks and puffy star stackables by Lawn Fawn

Patterned paper(star): Hello Sunshine collection by Lawn Fawn
