Double Duty card #2 ~ Lawn Fawn

 

Hi friends!

Thank you SO MUCH for your super sweet words 

from this post - it is so exciting and so fun and you are awesome! :)




Another thing that is fun?!

  The Double Duty card challenge

where Barb, Jeanette and I create 2 cards with a chosen theme.

This is similiar to a series I did previously called Spot The Difference.

The spin off of this one is that Barb choses a stamp company

each month for us to create 2 different cards.

 February's stamp company = Lawn Fawn :)

YAY!

I adore Lawn Fawn and have many many stamps and dies <3


For my cards, I've used Lawn Fawn's Our Friendship Grows.

I adore sunflowers but decided not to go traditional with these cards.

And I just love them :)

It took forever and a day to create it because I started with just this!




A distress oxide background from Creative Chick's distress oxide class!

I wasn't happy with this one panel at. all. so I 'repurposed' it 

and ended up stamping directly onto the panel and die cutting it.

And then I did like it so much!

To create the card base, I added a die cut panel of Spiffy Speckles 

and used my LF stitched rectangles to Licorice cardstock.




I used nearly every millimeter of the panel with the flowers

and leaves and then had an idea - add some sweet ladybugs!

I followed the current Lawn Fawnatics #95 sketch for this card



and I love that it made a 'quad' with the sunflowers.


For my 2nd card, I kept it SUPER simple 

and had an idea to use just one of the sunflowers as a contrast to the

black and white cardstock and background.



No coloring and just popped up the watercolored sunflower

and added a quick sentiment.  

This year I'm 'stocking my stash' + now I have one more get well card!




Here is a final look at both of my cards:




One stamp company, 2 different cards!

I love LOVE that I was able to use something I didn't like so much

and made 2 pretty cards that I DO like so much :)


Tomorrow I have a lunch date with my 2nd daughter 

who has some pretty big life changes - and I'm super excited

to catch up!  We're going to one of our favorite restaurants

as well as a book store and the fresh farmer's market <3


Thanks for stopping by and making it to the end of this post!

  7. Two beautiful cards Kelly. Love the flowers and the sweet ladybugs. A great use of the card and they look as if they were meant to be. Have a great meet with your daughter and a lovely day. Sadly we are still in lockdown and cannot go out to see friends or family and all the restaurants are closed. They hopefully open up in April. Big hugs and blessings, Carol S.xxxx

  8. Oh Kelly what an absolutely stunning pair of cards - love your repurposing of the panel that you did not particularly like to make these spectacular sunflowers.
    Stay safe
