Lawnscaping take #3

Hi everyone,

Well, here it is, my last shot in my efforts to impress the lovely folk over at Lawnscaping Challenge Blog, who currently have a call out to join their Facebook Team.  You can enter a maximum of 3 times, and this is my last life...eeeeeeeek!  I have tried to do three completely different designs, showing the different sides to me, so without further ado, here's my last card...

I took this adorable little fella from Lawn Fawn's 'Monster Mash' set, stamped him out on a sheet of masking paper a few times, and cut out.  I then took a piece of white card stock, and after stamping him out in the bottom right hand corner, to set my 'main' image, I repeatedly stamped him all over the page, masking the surrounding monsters as I went, until the whole page was over-run in a crazy monster mash fest!  I then coloured my main image, using bright oranges, to make him really 'pop'.  Once I'd wasted my time doing that - I decided a) I wanted him to actually stand off the card, and b) Instead of him being coloured, it would be more fun to paper-piece him.  So I put plan B into practise, and paper pieced my monster using paper from Lawn Fawn's 'Into the Woods', and 'Let's Polka' pads.  I also stamped, and cut out, this sweet little bow tie to add an extra touch of cute!  My sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's 'Chit Chat' set, and again, stamped and cut from the same paper, and mounted onto the card using foam adhesive.  I then matted my piece onto black card to frame it nicely, and some more Lawn Fawn polka dot paper.  And there you have it.  I didn't use any embellishments, as I loved the simplicity of the design.

I reeeeeeally hope you like it :)
Wish me luck folks!
Love always, Jillxxx


  1. Cute card! Love the stamped background! :)

  2. This is entirely too cute! I can't imagine how long it must have taken to stamp him out that many times!! Adorable!

  3. Your card is AMAZING!!! Love the way you have the monster stamped all over the background. A LOT of work, but well worth it. Great job on the paper piecing, too. ~ Andrea
