Avery Elle Summer Blog Hop + video!


Welcome to the Avery Elle Summer Blog Hop!! There are a lot of new amazing products and all the DT is featuring them along the hop. I hope you are enjoying it!!

I have two cards to share with you using the new Ribbit Ribbit and That Bites sets. And I also made a video showing you how I made my ombré vellum backgrounds and first card with Ribbit Ribbit:

I used Clean Color Real Brush markers to color my scene and I added fun texture to my card with felt clouds and lily pads. I think it's a great birthday card for Spring or Summer and I hope you like it!

Warts up?

I used the same vellum technique on my second card, using the new That Bites stamps and dies. I really love this sentiment with that fish, it makes me giggle!

That Frown

This time I added a bit of sparkle with some sequins and colored cardstock waves above the vellum piece. The fish is colored with Clean Color Real Brush markers too.

Today we're featuring a medium size set with coordinating dies that is perfect for Summer, Flamingo Together. Flamingos are very trendy right now so I'm happy to have this on hand!

Smile flamingo

I created a scene with different dies using solid cardstock and inked each piece with a darker Distress ink color on the borders to give a deeper look.

Girly tags with Avery Elle stamps

Hi again!

Having a bunch of all ocassions tags on hand is great when you are in a hurry. I think I can help a bit with these easy and quick to make tags :)

Skating By Tags

Today I'm on the Avery Elle blog featuring Skating By stamps and dies. I decided to make a set of tags and I started coloring the backgrounds of my tags. Then I stamped the images and placed on top thinking of which colors I'd use on the girls... And... What if I don't color them?

Skating By Tags - detail 2

So, finally, I only colored the bow, bracelet and "thing on her hand". I think they look different and original, al least haha. And I love the contrast with the colorful background. I hope you like them but, in any case, you can color them to finish your set of tags :)

Skating By Tags - detail 1

For the base tags I used the big tag from Pocket Tag dies because it's just the perfect size I was looking for. I cut the pocket but then I tought it'd be a great idea to fold it and leave the pocket behind so you can add a little surprise inside :)

Thanks for you visit, big hugs!! Have a wonderful start of the week!

Yay Kites - Lawn Fawn Summer release


Welcome to another day of celebration with Lawn Fawn new products!

Today the star of the show is Yay Kites a cheerful set of cute stamps with kites (of course) and cute critters. I love the big words in this set and I'm so happy that there's a new stamp set with more sentiments like these, the new Big Scripty Words. And one of the best things is that they have coordinating dies!

So I made a colorful card with shaker clouds and a warm sky where this cute bunny could fly happily with his kite (I know, it sounds very logical, right? haha)

Yay Kites!

I used Distress inks for my background, then sprinkled some water for a more sparkling look and then die cut the clouds from the coordinating Yay Kites die set. Then I created the shaker clouds and fill them with different clear and white sequins I have in my stash. All the images are colored with Copic markers, die cut and then adhered to the sky.

And everything will coordinate with the new Make Me Smile dies. A set of smile faces dies to cheer up your cards :)

I made a baby shower card using the new Clouds and Make Me Smile dies. I created mama and papa clouds and, of course, a baby cloud! Hahaha!

Happy Shower

I used Perfectly Plaid paper collection for the background and the sentiment is a mix of the new set Big Scripty Words (happy) with the Little Bundle set (shower), heat embossed with white embossing powder.
For the rain drops I used first a white ink and then a blue ink on top of it.

Dad + Me & Stitched Mountains - LF Summer release week


First of all, I want to thank you for your comments and nice feedback on my videos (and yestarday's video in particular) I'm still learning and always trying to improve so it means a lot to me, so thanks thanks thanks!! :D

And now, let's continue enjoying the new Lawn Fawn Summer release week with two new products today: Dad + Me and Stitched Mountains Borders.

After Mom + Me, I think Dad + Me was a must and Lawn Fawn made it real! Hehe I really love these cute families!! I made a rustic little scene with the bears. Those mountains and lake are just awesome, don't you think???

Awesome dad

I masked the mountains to make a larger group of them and stamped everything with Lawn Fawn ink. To match the "ofishally awesome" sentiment, I cut and added a fish to the "papa bear". Gosh, could they be any cuter???
After stamping the lake and mountains, I colored some grass and sky with copics to finish off the scene.

Awesome dad - detail

Also, to help us, scene lovers, creating our scenes, Lawn Fawn is going to release this Stitched Mountain Borders die. I LOVE them!! I made this simple card to showcase them using an old favorite: Happy Trails. I draw the little stars on the background with a white gel pen and colored the card and caravn with Copic markers.

Happy Trails

This card is super easy and quick to create and I'm very happy with how it turned out, I love its simplicity and bold colors :)

Happy Trails - detail
