Hello crafty friends! Today's post features a sweet and simple card I made for the latest Lawnscaping Challenge. This challenge is all about Fall/pumpkin-themed projects, so I decided to make a Fall-themed card using the "Sweater Weather" and "You're A Hoot" stamp set by Lawn Fawn.

I started off by stamping the very cute owl with Mama Elephant "Hazel" pigment ink. To add a little interest to the owl, I carefully applied a little bit of Antique Linen distress ink to his face and tummy. I also added some rosy cheeks using my R01 Copic Marker. I cut him out using the coordinating die. I used the log from the "Into the Woods" stamp set and stamped it with Colorbox "Chestnut Roan" chalk ink. I fussy cut the log leaving a white border to match the owl. I used the tree die from the "Sweater Weather" set to die cut the trees out of brown cardstock. I then used SSS "Sunshine" and "Orange Peel" dye inks for the leaves.

I die cut the focal panel using the 5 x 3 3/4" stitched rectangle die by Lawn Fawn. I also die cut two grassy hills using the stitched hillside borders dies. I thought the two shades of green cardstock added some extra dimension to the scene. For the background, I applied a light coat of Tumbled Glass distress ink. Although it's hard to tell in the photo, I used a cloud die to create clouds in the sky with the Tumbled Glass. I stamped the sentiment using the "Chestnut Roan" chalk ink onto a strip of pattern paper from the "Sweater Weather" 6x6 paper pack. I created a banner and popped it up using foam squares. I then matted my focal panel onto some matching pattern paper from the same 6x6 paper pack and mounted the entire panel onto the cardbase using foam tape.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks again for stopping by! Hope to see you soon! ♥
