Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop!!!!!

Welcome to the Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop!! I was SO excited to be ready and willing to share my love for Lawnscaping Challenges with you this morning. Some of you may know, that Lawn Fawn has become a new addiction to me. So have the Lawnscaping Challenges! Too often I don't get mine photographed in time, or life gets in the way to finish a thought, but this one I have been planning for a few weeks now and am SO excited to finally share it with you!
 
You should be coming here from Lenny. Her coloring is crazy-amazing!! I am super excited to see what she created this morning!! If you are just starting here, make sure that you head to the Lawnscaping Challenges Blog as there are a TON of prizes and sponsor information over there.  
Here is my project for the hop! I'm super excited about it. I chose to use two of my favorite stamp sets: Gnome Sweet Gnome and Into the Woods. I still cannot get over how cute that fox is, and had to "winterize" him for this card. I also had a blast playing with some of the Into the Woods papers and the Peace Joy Love Mixed Sequins.  
To start this card, I used a Silhouette cut that I altered to better suit what I was going to do with it. I cut off the side with the snowman. Then, I cut the front from Neenah Solar White paper, and the snowglobe itself from a sheet of Into the Woods paper. LOVE the woodgrain! The globe is actually packaging from a set of diecuts! Each of the sequins are stuck to the acetate using Xyron's 3/8" Adhesive Dots. They are perfect for sequins!! I also used my Xyron 9" Creative Station on both the snowglobe and the white and colored sections of the card. It made it SO much easier to piece all of the sections together. 
The background is a mix of Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Broken China, with a bit of Colorbox in Midnight. The snowbanks were cut using Kiwi Lane Templates in Paisley Place and a little bit of the Distress Ink makes them pop. The gnome, now Santa! and fox are both colored using Spectrum Noir markers. Although I did add a little bit of colored pencil on his face. The key was also colored using the markers.
I am SO glad that you were able to visit and hop along today!! Head on over to see the work by the amazing Christine Drogt now!!!

Lawn Fawn (Into the Woods stamps and paper, Gnome Sweet Gnome stamps, Peace Joy Love Mixed Sequins), Distress Inks (Broken China, Tumbled Glass), Spectrum Noir markers, Xyron Adhesive Dots, Xyron 9" Creative Station, Neenah coverstock (Solar White), Memento Ink (Tuxedo Black), American Crafts (dark kraft paper), Silhouette Cameo and Online Store, acetate Pin It
