Spotted and Hearted - November

hello and good morning lawnscaping friends!
it's Samantha M here again, and it's time for another Spotted and Hearted!! today i have some cards i found in the Lawnscaping Flickr account!

(cue the t-shirt cannons, cheering and confetti!!)
i have some amazing projects to feature today! so let's get to it, shall we?!

To start us off is this super awesome and sweet (he!) card! This card caught my eye right away! i LOVE the yellows and oranges with that walnut woodgrain notecard!! and that pumpkin pie with the spoon makes me want Thanskgiving to come here even quicker! Ha! Lastly, I really love all of the details here: the twine bow, shadows from the plate and distressed banner!! Hooray for this Happy Feast card!! :)

YES!! Who isn't instantly in love with this card?! I LOVE that it's a shaker card with coffee beans inside!! Ha ha ha!!! And the coloring on these coffee cups from Love You a Latte...dude! LOVE!!! So so so cool!! I also LOVE the stitched edges of the square base, too!! I would love to be in that circle of frothy drinks getting cozy!! AMAZING!

Ok, let's talk creativity for a minute!! THIS CARD HAS IT! Ha ha ha! I absolutely LOVE how this little deer from Into the Woods was bundled up with pieced from other stamp sets!! It looks like the scarf is from Winter Owl and the hat is from Winter Sparrows! Seriously SO clever!! And i just LOVE the distressed tag and blue little tag attatcher-thing at the top! It really ties into the rest of the coloring perfectly!! So cool!

Oh, this card set is incredible!! Did you see this no line coloring on the pumpkins? WOW!! No line coloring totally impresses me! I definitely need lines...and I definitely need to cut it out once I color! Ha ha!  These super happy pumpkins from So Thankful really shine here! Who wouldn't love to receive this card set as a gift? LOVE! 

The last card in this month's Spotted and Hearted is this adorable, amazing colorful winter card!! i LOOOOVE that background and the white snow falling down!! those snowflake cutouts really add SO much to this card!! The Winter Sparrows are seriously awesome! And the coloring...I want to color like that!! Ha! And the bold red tag the perfect addition! Gorgeous!!

Happy Birthday Card + Video


It's Tracy here with a fun birthday card using numbers!  If you haven't seen the challenge this week, you can check it out here.  I also created a video showing you step by step on how I made this card.

Watch here || Watch on Youtube

Isn't that Distress Glitter fun?  A little messy, but I love the end result!  All of the patterned papers I used are from the Lawn Fawn Let's Polka 6x6 paper pad.  I die cut the banner and circle using the Stitched Party Banner dies.

I stamped the numbers from the Quinn's 123's stamp set and heat embossed them with Silver embossing powder.  I then filled them in with Glossy Accents and Peacock Feathers Distress Glitter.  The sentiment is from the #awesome stamp set.  I added two bows on top of the banner with Stormy Lawn Trimmings.

All of the supplies are listed in the description below my video on Youtube.  I hope you enjoyed my card and are inspired to make your own card using numbers!

Have a great day!

Winners: Fall/Pumpkins - Queen of the Green, Top Mow-It-Alls, Honorable Gnomes

Hey friends, it's Christy. It's kind of funny that as I sit here typing up this winners post for our Fall/Pumpkin Themed Challenge, the world outside my window looks nothing like fall anymore! We got a record 12.6 inches of snow in just over 24 hours. Last year my hometown was officially the "snowiest city in America" and at this rate it looks like we'll be holding on to that title. So how about you? Are you still enjoying the fall weather in your neck of the woods, or is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas?

Well, let's get to the big announcement, shall we?

Special thanks to Simon Says Stamp for sponsoring this round with a $25 gift certificate to their store!
