lawn fawn gleeful gardens

Today's card features the adorable stamp set Gleeful Gardens by Lawn Fawn. This set is so cute with its mushrooms and snails and flowers and grass and I love the fun sentiment too! I colored the stamped images with Prismacolor colored pencils. I got the set of 132 recently and I'm loving them. I asked for them for Valentine's Day because who needs jewelry when you can have crafty supplies, right?!! The sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder by Hero Arts. It's much whiter than the AC white I had been using.

Here are the details on how this card came together. The card base is a standard A2 size. I cut the frame with the two largest dies of the Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangles. I cut my green cardstock with the large stitched rectangle and again with two of the dies from Simon Says Stamp stitched hillside borders.

The images were stamped in memento ink. I blended the pencil coloring with a prismacolor blender marker (I linked to one on Amazon, but I found mine at Hobby Lobby). The prismacolor pencils I used are numbers 913, 989, 916, 1003, 905, 992, 924, 922 and 926. I love these colors together! 

I adhered the blue patterned paper on the card base for the sky and the lower layer of green cardstock with dot adhesive. I adhered the top layer of green cardstock with foam tape for added dimension. I cut out all the images with the matching dies and adhered the mushrooms, flower and snail with foam tape and the grass with dot adhesive. The frame was adhered with both types of adhesive - dot roller on top of the green cardstock and foam tape on top of the blue patterned paper to make it level all the way around. I used a zig clear glitter pen on the white dots of the mushrooms, but it shows up much better in person than in the photos.

Hope you enjoyed today's card! I shared another card made with the Gleeful Gardens stamp set in this blog post if you'd like to see more. I'm linking up today with the Simon Monday challenge. Check it out for lots of inspiration!
