Spooktacular new dies! - LF release week

Hi everyone!!
Welcome to the second day of the Lawn Fawn Fall/Winter release week!

Today we're featuring some new dies. Ooooh they're so amazing, I'm going to use them everywhere lol (not joking) The new Stitched Hillside borders are perfect to build easy and perfect scenes and if you know me, you know I love to create scenes on my cards :)

Another new die is Forest Border, a super cute adition for your scenes and perfect for every time of the year, just change the cardstock color and you have a fall winter or summer border of trees, so cool! I used them in black for my night scene and I love how they look!

I started this card with the idea of a graveyard in mind then it looked too spooky so I added candy everywhere and the little ghost with his bag ready for Halloween treats, is he cute or what?

I'n not going to lie, cutting all those images, specially the little stars without the dies was time consuming!! I'm getting more and more lazy about cutting haha! But I didn't want the little white borders this time :)

Happy Halloween

I hope you like my "spooky" card hee hee! Don't forget to check the Lawn Fawn blog, it's full of amazing projects from the DT, a video and a great giveaway!!

Thank you so much for your visit, it makes me happy! :)

This is one of those super happy times of the year! The new Lawn Fawn release is here, it will be available to purchase on August 28th and in the meantime we will have a week of inspiration to show you some of the new stuff, you're going to love it, I tell you!!


This first day we're featuring the new stand alone die Goodie Bag (so so cute!!) and the new Halloween stamp set, Spooktacular (more cuteness here!!).

I already made a Fall / Thanksgiving bag using Goodie Bag for the sneak peak week that you can see here but I couldn't help myself and I had to make something more... How about some cut bags for your Halloween treats? How about monster bags? They make me giggle!

Monster bags

And following with the Halloween theme I made this card using Spooktacular and I had a lot of fun creating it! For th background I used Distress inks and then sprayed some water and Perfect Pearls mist for some shine. I love the look of the vellum clouds, it looks like a night with mist or something hee hee

#Smile, we have a Winner!!

Hello!

I have a card for you featuring one of the sets from the latest Avery Elle release (we will have a new and amazing one very soon!! stay tuned!!) It's called #Smile and it has a big and cute polaroid :)


And here's what I made with it. I've been inspired by Elena's monster card and that stunning background so I decided to create a background full of text (combining most of the sentiments in the set) for my card too.

Happy birthday #smile

The sentiment is from Surf's Up, I love that cool imperfect font, specially for masculine cards, it's hard to find non elegant or cute sentiments, don't you think?
Also, I created a window using Avery Elle Signature dies so you can see the paper on the background and the card looks less dark :)

Oh! I didn't forgot about that little giveaway!! *wink*
And the winner is....
Drum roll....

Texture anyone? Lawnscaping challenge #88

Hi there and happy Monday!!
It's time for a new Lawnscaping challenge! Do you love to add texture to your cards? Then you're going to love this one! Just be creative: Felt, cork, ribbon, embellishments, embossing... Sounds fun? I really had fun making my card :)


I made a baby card using Hello Baby stamp set, this set is super cute and I need to use it more!
I cut  wide stripe of vellum and colored it with blue Distress ink. The bunny and umbrella were colored with Prismacolors and Gamsol. But this was all about texture, isn't it? So I cut some felt clouds and grass and added glossy accents to the hearts and umbrella.

Happy Shower

Here's a closer look so you can see the pretty shine of the glossy accents on the umbrella and heart-drops. Oh! I almost forgot! Some more texture! Just look at that cute mini pompom on the bunny!

Surf's Up! - Avery Elle card

Hello!
I hope your week is being awesome but if you're missing the weekend, don't worry, it's just two days away! And meanwhile I have a beachy card to cheer you up :)

I'm featuring Avery Elle's Surf's Up stamp set, a very cool one!


I think that because this year the Summer here is not very hot I'm making a lot of summery and beachy cards, to compensate, lol

Surf's up!

I used Custom Panels dies to create the sand hills and the surf boards, it's super easy, just mark the center, place the curved die, cut, and then the same on the other side. Finally I went with a black marker all the border so it looked like a stamp and matched the scene better :)


(Sorry for the weird color and the poor quality of the pic)
I hope you like it! Take a look at the Avery Elle's blog to see what Caryn has made with the #Smile stamp set!

Thank you so much for stopping by, hugs!

Supply list:
- Avery Elle stamps: Surf's Up
- Avery Elle dies: Custom Panels

Add a Little Dazzle has these metal sheets that add a cool touch to your project, they look like foil but they're thicker and stronger. So you can die cut or emboss them.

Make a wish

They look amazing embossed but I went classic with my project and just cut stripes to create a background, I love how it looks!!
