Lawn Fawn & Xyron week


This week Lawn Fawn and Xyron are teaming up to bring you a lot of inspiring projects combining products from both companies.

I took a bunch of different Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and paper to create this interactive card with a summery scene.

One of my favorite papers from the lovely Really Rainbow paper collection is Yellow Brick Road and it inspired me to create this card. I was looking at it and thinking "You could really create a pretty beach sunset scene just with this paper" so I did it :)

I used a 12"x12" sheet, using the pink and red zones for the sky, the blues for the sea and the yellows for the sand and sun. I used the Stitched Wave border to cut the ocean waves and Simple Stitched border for the sand.

Once I have my background done, I used the Reveal Wheel dies to create the interactive elements and then I decorated the scene with Copic colored images from different sets: Ahoy Matey and Life is Good.

I hope you like my project! Don't forget to check out the Lawn Fawn and Xyron blogs during all this week for more inspiration (there's giveaway, too!) :)

Thanks for stopping by, hugs!!

Happy monkey birthday - Avery Elle card


It's Yainea here with a fun birthday card featuring Peek-A-Boo Pals stamps and dies. I'm absolutely in love with this set,you can use it for a lot of different occassions, combining the little critters or using just one of them as I did for my project.

I started by stamping the background with leaves from Tropics stamp set over green cardstock and adding a bit of color with liquid watercolors. Then I stamped and colored the monkeys with my alcohol markers and used the new Oval Burst die to create a frame.

I hope you like my card for today, have a nice week!!

Lawn Fawn & Marvy week colaboration

Hi there and happy Friday! Yay!

This week the Lawn Fawn design team is teaming up with Marvy Uchida to bring you some inspiration. This is last day of the colaboration so make sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog to see a ton of amazing projects!

I used Marvy Permanent Le Plume alcohol markers to color the critters in my card. It was my first time using them and I'm really happy with them! In fact, I'm using them on another cards I'm working on :) I also used the Jewel Picker to pick up the little leaves, it works with little pieces of paper too :D

I combined a bunch of different sets to create this card and I enjoyed the process a lot. I love that you can combine the sloth from Hang in There with the one from Slow Down and Enjoy, this last one looks like a younger sloth that's still not an expert in hanging out lol To stamp it this facing front, I used his back stamp just removing the ink from his tail before stamping it.

I hope you like my card! Thank you so much for stopping by, have an amazing weekend!

No line coloring floral card with Avery Elle

Hello there!!

Today I'm here to feature a really cool die from the Summer release: the Hatch Mat Die. I combined it with the beatiful Hummingbird stamp set to create this card. I've been practicing the no line coloring techinque with my liquid watercolors and I'm really enjoying it :)

To color the flowers I first stamped them using a very soft dye ink and then I colored them using my Avery Elle liquid watercolors. Then I die cut them and adhered to a paper cut using the Hatch Mat die, stamped my sentiment and added some clear drops and a rustic cord.
I love that you can use the stripes of the die to add more interest to your card, it also makes the perfect frame! I love adding diagonal sentiments and this die makes it so easy!

I hope you feel inspired to get crafty, have a nice day!!
