Counterfeit Cards

With Lawn Fawn's new releases coming up I saw a couple of cute cards on their blog I thought, hey, I have a sheep stamp! I have a scarecrow stamp! And I wanted to try and make a copy with what I had. Only I did NOT have a cornstalk stamp. But I did have some leftover stamp rubber material (from trimming around a rubber stamp) and I was able to cut my own. Unfortunately, it ended up in much larger proportion to my scarecrow. LOL

Here's my cards compared with the original LF.
the LF blog: http://lawnfawn.blogspot.com/

I did not have the LF grass die, but I did have a different one from Impression Obsession. So I worked with it, layering it with some strips of paper cut with a deckle edged scissor. And while my scarecrow stamp had a couple of crows on it, I decided to use some bird dies from IO and covered them up. I think I'll be getting the LF grass die because I like that it's different from what I have, not so open, and I think it will also layer well with the IO one.  The sheep card is varied a bit more from the original. I drew the scarf/needles and the ball of yarn myself.
