Avery Elle & Tombow Blog Hop

Hello there!!

We are celebrating another fun blog hop this week! We are teaming up with Tombow USA to feature products from both companies and share some inspiration :)

You arrived here from Serena Bee. If you stumbled across my blog make sure you start the hop party at the Avery Elle Blog. In any case, you have a list with all the participants below :)

I made a super colorful card to celebrate this party haha! I used Big Greetings stamp set and the birds from Tweet Tweet stamps to create this birthday card. To color the birds I used the Irojiten Colored Pencil Primary Set from Tombow.


This was the first time I used Tombow pencils and I must say that I love them!! With just that 5 pencil set, I colored the birds and the colors are bold and vibrant :) To get that blend, I used Gamsol with the pencils.

The rest of the card is pretty simple to make, layers of cardstock and a fun detail of fuchsia crepe paper. The big sentiments included in this stamp set are great for making easy cards because they will be the star of the show and you ony need to add some details around them.

Here's some info about the blog hop PRIZES: Comment on all the Designers’ projects for your chance to win a prize you are guaranteed to fall in love with! One lucky winner will get BOTH a $50 Gift certificate from Avery Elle and $50 worth of Tombow Adhesives! We will announce the Winner on August 1st via our Social Media outlets!

Catching up - Avery Elle cards

Hi there!

It has been a lot since my last post, sorry!! I'm very busy with work lately so I haven't had a lot of time for crafting :(

I want to share a pair of projects that I made using Avery Elle products from the last release, they're at the Avery Elle blog too so maybe they're not new for you hehe

First, an ocean-themed card I made to feature The Reef clear stamps. I went out of my comfort zone for this one. I'm more used to created cards with cute images than realistic ones so I went for a more classic card, adding some adhesive pearls and keeping a soft color palette. I hope you like it!


I kept my second card super simple letting the tough guy be the star of the show. To remind the classic circus, I added red and blue and I framed the tough guy with white embossed stars. Circus and clowns freak me out a bit so I kept it simple hahaha


I hope you're enjoying your day!! Big big hugs and thanks for stopping by!

Water Shaker card video with Lawn Fawn

Hola!!

Last year I made a water shaker card and lots of you asked for a how-to video... A year later but... here it is! :)


I kept the design simple to focus on the shaker tutorial and it ended up being a fun and super easy to make card so I hope you like it and give this idea a try!


I still have the card I made last year and it looks exactly the same. I think you can sucessfully mail a water shaker card because the water has room to flow if it's pressed down so the little bag wouldn't break and ruin the card.


I also experimented adding sequins to the water and they look fine. I haven't included that in the video because I'm trying to make shorter videos and that step is not something complicated to do if you want to try it :) Also, experimenting is fun!

As always, if you have any question, you can leave it here or at my youtube channel and I'll answer as soon as possible!

Thank you so much for you visit, have an amazing day!

Supply list:
- Lawn Fawn stamps: Fintastic Friends
- Lawn Fawn dies: Fintastic Friends, Stitched Rectangles Stackables
- Lawn Fawn papers: Perfectly Plaidt
- Copic markers
- Memento ink: Tuxedo Black
- Memento marker: Tuxedo Black
- Ribbon
- Ziplock bags
- Acetate
