We've moved - House card

Hi!

It's me with another project using the new products from the Summer Avery Elle release. Today I'm featuring the new Welcome Home stamp set and I made a fun house-shaped card


To be able to see the inside of the card you need to pull out the roof! hehe
To create it, I just made a pocket out of patterned paper that was the house. I heat embossed the little elements and colored them with watercolor markers, then I adhered them with foam adhesive to the house-pocket.
To make the roof, I heat embossed the roof stamp twice, colored it and adhered both parts together, adding a piece of cardstock in the middle, where I stamped my sentiment.


You can use this idea for a "Congrats/New Home" card or a Welcome Home card or you can even decorate the little house with Christmas ornaments for a Christmas card or with party ornaments for an invitation to a party... There are lots of possibilities! ;) 

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

Stitched Clouds Backdrops - Lawn Fawn Summer release week

Hi there!

Welcome to the last day of Lawn Fawn May inspiration week, tomorrow (May 18th) the complete new release will be available for purchase!


Today we're featuring some new background die that are simply amazing. For my card, I used Stitched Cloud Backdrops and I love how these dies add some pretty texture still being subtle :)

I used this die to create my cloudy background and I paired it with another new set Plane and Simple. I kept my card very simple, just masking the negative part of a circle on the middle and coloring that with Distress inks.

Plane and Simple includes some cute dies that match perfectly with the ones in the die so I added some of those to add some dimension. This card has not a lot of color so I chose red as my main color to really make the card pop.


For more inspiration using the new background die, please check out the Lawn Fawn blog. There are tons of amazing cards, a demo video and, of course, a giveaway! ;)

I hope you've enjoyed my projects for this Summer release week! Thank you so much for your visit and support, as always. Have an amazing rest of the week!

Palm Trees & Wild For You - Lawn Fawn Summer release week

Hola!

Are you loving the new Lawn Fawn products? I know you are because they are amazing!!
So Lawn Fawn Summer inspiration week continues today and I have more projects to share with you! 


My first project features Palm Trees dies. And I'm really amazed with this set. I started playing with these dies, not having a real plan for a card in mind, but when I started coloring them, I fell in love! That little crab is super cute and I love how colorful this card ended being.


I colored the images with Copic markers and used Distress inks for the background. On the sand, I added some dots with my Copics to simulate sand and then springled some water on the sky for a more summery and fun look. For the stripes, I used Abandoned Coral Distress ink mixed with water and created them with a flat brush.


My next project features Wild For You stamps and dies and Selfie Frames. I combined everything wo create this fun and colorful card with critters of the party guests and little birthday lion :)


I stamped and masked each critter and colored the background using Distress inks. Then, I colored all the critters with Copic markers. 
For the background, I stamped all the leaves with Noble Fir ink and the colored them with Mowed Lawn ink mixed with water. I was looking for this exact look so I went with this dye ink because I was not going to touch the borders with my little brush while coloring the inside. If you want to make this and you're going to paint the wholeleaf, go with a waterproof ink instead or the ink will bleed while painting with watercolors :)


I hope you like my projects, I sure had a great time making them! For more inspiration, demo videos and giveaways, don't forget to visit the Lawn Fawn blog!

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
