Avery Elle shaker tags

Hello there!

I'm here today to share a pair of shaker tags I made featuring Love is in the Air set. I love that this set combines solid with non-solid images and it's full of cute images! It's perfect for Valentine's cards but I used it to make something that would suit any occassion. These tags were easy to make thanks to the Shaker Tags Elle-ments dies.


First I sponged some ink on the background with a blending tool and stamped the super cute clouds from teh set. I colored the birds with Copic markers and adhered on on the background. Then I mounted the shaker tags, adding some fun sparkling elements inside. To finish the tags I adhered the other bird on top with the sentiment and a little heart.


I hope you like my project for today and give these tags a try! They are fun to create and a sweet addition to a sweet gift for a special someone :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a nice day!!

Otterly fantastic day with AE

Hello there!
Today I'm sharing a simple card featuring Otterly Fantastic stamps and dies. How cute are those otters?? I really love otters so I'm always happy using them on my cards and projects.

I decided to go quick and simple, because sometimes we need just that to have a special handmade card for a special someone but we don't have a lot of time to make it.


I started with a pair of watercolors, aqua and teal and created a super quick background, finishing it sprinkling some more color on top. Then I stamped one of the otters and the little shell and used Copic makers to add some color.


After that, I die cut them using the coordinating dies, I love the one that creates cuts so the otter can hold little things!. To frame the little otter, I used a die I love, Heart Frame. Finally, I added some twine and little gems as a final touch.

I hope you like my project for today! Thank you so much for stopping by, have a nice day!!

Windmill - Avery Elle card

Hello and Merry Christmas everyone!
I'm here today with a colorful card featuring the pretty Windmill set. This set is perfect for creating scenes on your cards, and is great for just because cards.


I stamped all the little elements on watercolor paper and colored them using my watercolor brush makers, so relaxing! This set is also perfect for adding a littlr interactive element, just adding a brad on the center of the windmill blades :).


I also tried a fun technique to add some texture and additional interest to the card. I used the clouds from the Picket Fence set and embossed the background to create a fun cloudy sky. To do this technique you need to open the plataform of your cutting machine just like when you use embossing folders. I used an embossing mat but a piece of foam works well too. Place your elements like in the picture bellow: Plataform + embossing mat/foam + cardstock + die + plataform. Test with a small piece first to see if you like the embossing effect. You can always add more foam or a thicker cardstock. I really love the look!


This card looks elaborate but, as I only used watercolors, it's really very quick to make. Just stamping, coloring, dire cutting and adhereing everything together on the base card :)

I hope you like it, thank you so much for stopping by today, have an amazing Christmas!

Woodland Critter Huggers - Lawn Fawn December inspiration week

Hi!

Today I have something super cute to share with you, the last new product from the Lawn Fawn December release week: Woodland Critter Huggers dies. Awwwww I love them so much!!


I decided to use the pieces to create some racoons, I love the pun "You've stolen my heart" paired with a raccoon, they just match perfectly and it's a sweet message for Valentine's day :)


They are holding chocolate cookies decorated with a heart.


I inked the borders with my blending tool to add mnore dimension to those cuties and I also created a little card with a sweet message to include in the new pocket. A gift card would be a perfect addition too!


I hope you like my little racoons! For more amazing inspiration, please visit Lawn Fawn blog!

Thank you so much for your visit, have a nice day!
