Dream & Grassy Border - LF April Inspiration Week

Hi there!
I'm so sorry to be late posting this!! 
Here are my projects for the last day of Lawn Fawn April Inspiration Week, I had a lot of fun making these!

Today I'm showcasing Dream mini stamp set and Grassy Border die.
I think my card features correctly Grassy Border! lol
I came with this super simple and easy to do idea and I really like it :)
I combined the "hello" from Hello Sunshine with "there" from Critters con the Savanna to create the sentiment.


I love this new mini set, I love the cute and fluffy feathers and the font sentiment, I think it's perfect!!
And you can use it for different styles, that's cool!!
First I made this set of tag and box that you've probably already seen con the CHA release week.
I stamped a background of feathers and then I heat embossed some feathers with white powder con vellum and colored them with Copics.


And lastly I went experimental and tried this thinking about native american indians. I used the Silhouette for the circle and then I covered it with rustic twine. The background was made with watercolors and Distress inks.


I wanted a magical look but mixed with earth and natural tones. What do you think about it?

Look for a lot more inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog, the DT has some really amazing projects!!
And stay tunned for May Inspiration Week because it's a Release Week too!! And I tell you, you don't want to miss it ;)

Write It - Avery Elle

Hello again!

This is my second post today so if you're here to see my Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Journaling Card project, just click here or scroll down :)

Today I have another project to share with you, have you seen the amazing new release from Avery Elle? Well, my card today features Write It, a stamp set with gorgeous calligraphic sentiments. It remembers me about some old books of accounts written by hand from my great-grandfather that my aunt show me some years ago :)


I used watercolor paper, heat embossed the sentiment on the border and colored over it in a messy way. Then I sew a heart on the bottom and glued a wood veneer one.

I found that if the watercolors stain your white embossing, when everything is completely dry you can use an eraser to clean it! :)

Hope you feel inspired! Go and check out what Caryn have for you too on the Avery Elle blog!

Supply list:
- Avery Elle stamps: Write It
- Versamark ink & white embossing powder
- Watercolors
- Wood veneer heart

Large Stitched Journaling Card - LF Inspiration Week

Hi and Happy Monday!!

The inspiration continues today at Lawn Fawn blog because it's April Inspiration Week!
And it's time for the new Large Stitched Journaling Card, a cool set not only perfect for scrapbookers or Project Life'rs. Of course, I made a card ;)


I created the background with another die from the latest release, the Stitched Scalloped Border, I cut a piece of foam and inked it up with different colors, I was inspired by a set of digital journaling cards that I can't find right now to link up, I should save it when I saw it, grrrr sorry!

Then I used the Scripty Hello die, the word bubble and banner are included in the Large Stitched Journaling Card with some other basic and cool shapes, I love that!

Oh! I almost forgot, the fluffy effect on the cotton candy was created with white Liquid Appliqué colored with pink Copics.

Avery Elle April/May Release Blog Hop

Yay! Welcome to the Avery Elle April/May Release Blog Hop!


Finally all the new release is available on the Avery Elle store, and there are some awesome sets, I tell you!

The set I'm featuring today is called "Weather it" and it's a cool set with a big umbrella and great matching sentiments! And there's also coordinating dies! (I love that sets come with coordinating dies!)
So here's what I made:

I used a stencil with embossing paste, color mists and Stickles to create the rain of hearts, it looks amazing in person! Then I added some felt clouds and the umbrella stamped on patterned paper.


I made another card using watercolors but the colors in this one looks a bit weird and I could fix it grr!
