Lawnscaping Challenge

So I am totally in love with my Lawn Fawn stamps. They are even cuter than a baby bunny! I ran across the Lawnscaping Challenge blog and decided to give it a try. This week's theme is love, and in my kooky mind, I was inspired by the movie "The Shining" (based on Stephen King's super scary book).

Here's my card using 3 different sets of Lawn Fawn stamps (another one of my card making addictions!):

Isn't the typewriter stamp adorable? Anyhoo, I was looking at the typewriter, and I thought of the scene in the movie The Shining where Shelley Duvall finds the "book" Jack Nicholson has been writing for the past few months. Instead of a book, all of his pages say "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." I still get chills thinking about that scene!

So I made my own background paper using MS Word and made a slightly different mantra. I thought it was a sweet card for someone who misses their lovey dovey.My husband said it was a stalker card, though. Hmmph!

Here's the low-down on the card:
Stamps: Jessie's ABCs, Just My Type, How Delightful (the shine lines) are from Lawn Fawn
Paper: Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink); red and blue (Bazzill)
Ink: Cranberry and Blue Stylus Set (Color Box); Coffee Bean Brilliance (Tsukineko); Tea Dye (Tim Holtz)
Other: Clear embossing powder; Notebook edge die (My Favorite Things)

Thanks for looking!

  3. Super-fun card, Jocelyn! Your custom background paper looks awesome, and it cracked me up to read that, with a love theme, you were inspired by "The Shining". Ha! Proof that inspiration can come from anywhere. :o)

  4. Yep, I'm on board. The background is fantastic! And the colors and mix of stamps are perfect too.
