You've Got Mail - Lawnscaping Challenge #64

Lawn Fawn has some of the cutest stamp sets around. I first discovered them a couple of years back when they took part in an OWH event and have been a fan ever since. I recently discovered the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog and have been trying to join in when I can. The current bi-weekly challenge is 'Distress Maniacs' and since I had yet to ink up this set that I recently purchased I decided it was a perfect opportunity.

There are a lot of cute little stamps in this set, like the tiny stamp and envelope, that lend themselves well to doing a 'collage' style card. When I start making a collage style card I often find that keeping track of all the things I'm using becomes a challenge in itself. LOL. With the exception of the tiny hearts (which are from the Lawn Fawn , Bee Mine mini) all of the various stamps you see are from the 'You've Got Mail' set. The grey distress squares in the backrgound were created by simply stamping the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad (Weathered Wood) directly on the paper.

While CAS designs certainly have their place I've always enjoyed pieces that include lots of small details for the viewer to discover. I found myself completely absorbed and had a lot of fun working on this card.

Happy Crafting!

Hi again Paula! After reading the post about your Silhouette I wanted to tell you that I have this stamp set and made stamp mats for the mail box, envelope and postal stamp from this set to cut with my Silhouette. It made stamping out multiples for OWH cards so easy.I am enjoying your blog!
