As I drove to my retreat this weekend, I was truly passing through a Winter Wonderland as all the trees were dark and wet with the branches covered in snow. So very pretty. Especially since it was only enough snow to make it pretty, and not enough to have to shovel or make it hard for me to drive to the retreat. 🙂

Hello You handmade card with Lawn Fawn stamps by Crafting{without}Kids.

I used a bunch of my new Lawn Fawn stamps to create this Winter Wonderland for the new Lawnscaping Challenge. Party Animal, Baah Humbug and Scripty Sayings all showed up in this scene. I used the long swirls of Hello You from Scripty Sayings to make a snowy little hillside for the friends to meet up under a Distress Ink sky.

I’ve made more Halloween cards this weekend than in the last several years combined so maybe my friends will be seeing a few in their mailboxes this year.

I chose the Halloween theme and went a little off-book with the colors changing the orange to a lime green that I really like.

I was able to use another die that I haven’t opened before that I’ve had for a while. It’s the 3×4 die behind my little critters and is called Solace from The Crafter’s Workshop. The little guys are from Lawn Fawn Into the Woods and of course, they needed some witchy little hats from Hats Off to You 🙂 I really like how this turned out and I hope you do too!

I have a really great little Lawn Fawn stamp set called Good Fortune that I’ve had for what feels like forever and I’ve never really used it. It has a great fortune cookie with interchangeable fortunes and a little take out box. I mean, I’ve used the teeny tiny heart from it, but that’s hardly the point, right? I was at my monthly crop this last weekend (can’t you tell? I mean, I’m doing a blog post 😉 ), and I really tried to limit the stamp sets I brought and that one made the cut. So it was finally my chance to use it!




Takeout card by Crafting{Without}Kids for Lawnscaping Challenge


So cute, right? I don’t know why I didn’t get around to using this set before. I heat embossed the container with my new favorite Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger on Cut & Paste paper from Amy Tangerine. I used a friend’s Cuttlebug embossing folder from the Decorative Tile set to add a little texture to the otherwise fairly simple card. I was going to stamp out the chopsticks that are in the set, but then I noticed my toothpicks and decided to cut those into chopsticks instead. A much better (and cuter) decision. 🙂

Welcome to the my little corner of the Pretty Pink Posh Shaker Card Blog Hop!


This is my first attempt at a shaker card and I will admit to a lot of false starts, middles and even ends! I was working on my card at a crop and I’m sure that didn’t help as I was distracted with door prizes, coerced by candy and sidetracked by shiny things.

But here he is in all his shakery glory!

Isn’t he cute? I think he looks pretty dang smart in his spring hat. The stamps are all from Lawn Fawn. The deer and the sentiment are from Into the Woods and the hat is from Hats Off to You. I LOVE that set! You can make any image perfect for any occasion just by changing out the hat. The sequins are Lawn Fawn too, called Let’s Polka.

I also got to play with my new Tim Holtz Mini Distress inks and the new mini foam blending tool to create my sky and shade the rolling hills. I already own all of the inks (of course), so I didn’t think I would buy these. But after my first trip to a crop, I can say that having a “travel set” is a must. I’m going to go and buy the rest of them ASAP (and you should too). 🙂

On to another blog! Hop on!

This is the first time I’ve made something to enter in more than one challenge. This is for the Lawnscaping Challenge on Tags and the Raisin Boat Challenge #6 Thank You. I used a Raisin Boat set I got from a friend called Central Park and some Lawn Fawn stamps that I’ve been wanting to play with called Blissful Botanicals.

Challenge Tag for Raisin Boat and Lawnscaping

I like that the tag looks quite layered even though there is only one layer. Then I added a little texture and dimension with the twine and button. Everything is colored with my Beloved Tim Holtz Distress Markers. Lately, I’ve been wanting to work on bringing in more elements and still having the finished card or tag look cohesive rather than chaotic.

Thanks for visiting!
