Lawnscaping Bloghop Fall


A warm welcome to the lawnscaping blog hop!

I've been looking forward to welcoming you to this hop!  You should have come to me by way of Lynette.  I hope you have been enjoying the hop so far ? :) Seeing all those beautiful fall colors!?  Yes, you might have already noticed that this month's theme is all things pumpkin and beautiful changing leaves: FALL!


I have created 2 fall cards for you today! Both cards are inspired by the beautiful photos above. The gorgeous pumpkins and the orange colors!

No fall card without pumpkins, right? The cute Lawn Fawn owl (winter owl) is hopping of joy to see you! He is paperpieced with some cosmo cricket papers and the eyes are black gems with rangers white enamel.

Supplies: 
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Winter Owl, Lawn Fawn So Thankful, Lawn Fawn, Lawn Fawn Claire's ABC.
Papers: Cosmo Cricket, Bazzill 


For my next card I used orange colors on kraft - I love orange at this time of the year! I was actually looking at the small half moon stamp in the same set Lawn Fawn Hoppy Halloween and that inspired me to create a bigger half moon (using spellbinders nestabilities) for the bunny to sit on!





Note, the hop runs from Friday, October 5th, all the way until Sunday, October 7th.  Make sure to comment on all of the blogs to be eligible for some FANTASTIC prizes!  All of the details can be found on the lawnscaping home page. 

Thank you so much for hopping along with us all today! 
Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Now, please head on over to the talented Barb's blog.  If you've gotten off-track, don't worry!  Head back to the lawnscaping blog to see the complete list of designers and prize information!

I just love your humor! Great scenes! The owl jumping into the pumpkins, and the bunny trying to catch another bunny, so fun! Love the piecing and the way you stamped those stars too!

Christiana said...

These cards are AMAZING! I can't decide which I love more! The owl card -- just fab. Those patterned pumpkins are gorgeous and I LOVE that you made some green. Totally unexpected. The bunnicula (which I like to call him, lol) card is also just incredible. You're a paper-piecing master!

I love your cards! They are awesome! The owl hopping off the pumpkins is a great idea. So fun! And the bunny with the dangling carrot on the moon is gorgeous! I love Orange too!

mtscrapgal said...

I like the brad eyes on the owl and the paperpieced pumpkins. The big moon is perfect for the bunny to sit on in the 2nd card. Thanks

Elizabeth said...

Such unexpected colors for your pumpkins, but i love it! Great projects.

Kelly said...

So many things I love about both cards. I LOVE the dimension, the cute images, clever scenes and those COLOR SCHEMES! The green/white and tans for the owl cards are just fabulous!

Hi Pia!

What a fun blog you have! I love your style! Each card is cuter than the next - so glad I hopped by :)

Donna Bowman said...

Cute cards! Love the paper piecing!

belldoubleyou said...

I really like the way you've used mainly green in the first card. I love more traditional fall colors too, but by this point on the blog hop something that is not red and orange and yellow is sort of like a palette cleanser... quite refreshing.

Rachel W K said...

beautiful beautiful cards. I am in LOVE with that happy owl... my favorite card of the hop so far :) thanks for inspiring me!

gobeagirl said...

Hi Pia, I bet anyone that gets a card from you just can not wait to rip that envelope open to see what unique and wonderfully detailed card is waiting for them inside. I have to say that I just love the way you see these stamps and how you make each of your cards such an original piece of you. I love your owl that is jumping from those awesome pumpkins that you have made. I also really really love how you have used your own mood for Mr Rabbit to sit on and dangle his delectable carrot from. You truly have an awesome talent for making these cards your own. Just gorgeous each and everyone of them. Thanks for sharing your totally awesome ideas with us all as I really enjoyed seeing them through your eyes. Have a wonderful day and weekend. Hugs, Lisa G

Both of these cards are great. I love the inspiration to take a stamp from the set and use a due to mimic it. The papers and colors on the owl card and the black gem eyes with white enamel is genius!
