Good morning! It’s the first Monday of the month which means we’ve got a new challenge up at Lawnscaping and it’s a fun one! Challenge #118, sponsored by Lawn Fawn, is In With The Old! Dust off those old Lawn Fawn sets as the focus of your creation and one lucky winner will win a stamp set of their choice from Lawn Fawn!
I confess I have owned the And a Partridge Lawn Fawn stamp set for YEARS and this is the first time I’ve ever used it. It’s a really cute set though and I definitely think I will come up with other ways to use it this year!
My card exclusively uses the And a Partridge stamp set along with the retired (see, it’s definitely “in with the old”…ha!) Snow Day patterned paper from Lawn Fawn and the Stitched Circle Tag dies. After die-cutting a circle tag, I heat-embossed the tree with gold tinsel powder and then used copic markers to color the pears. I stamped the tree again on scrap paper with red pigment ink and heat-embossed it with clear powder. I colored the bird’s belly, fussy cut him, and layered him on my gold tree with foam mounting tape. When I fussy cut the bird I cut off his legs and beak so that the gold embossing powder would show instead. Next I stamped the greenery design and sentiment onto patterned paper and heat-embossed it with white powder. I tied Peppermint and Gold Sparkle twine with metallic gold thread around the patterned paper and tied a bow at the top of the tag. I layered it onto a white card base with foam mounting tape and secured the tag with a little adhesive!
