Hello and happy Saturday!

Milk Carton 1

I had to pair it with the Milk & Cookies stamp set and created a gift box of cookies, it's really simple but I love that it looks super cute with just a pair of embellishments. I prepared some milk and cookies for my photos and when I finished I ate some of the cookies with the milk... I deserved them... right? ;)

You're my cutie pie - AE card

Hello!

Today I have a sweet card to shre with you, and I mean sweet because it's full of pies! I used Humble Pie stamp set from Avery Elle to create it and this is the last card I made with this release because the next week we'll be showing the new Avery Elle Summer release, it's huge and it's amazing, stay tuned!! ;)


I love purple Greens, blues and purples are my favorite shades but it's hard to see a card using purples, right? I wanted to add one more to that short list and then I saw that Caryn, my Avery Elle buddy, has another purple card for the same day, so cool!!

Cutie Pie

Well, my card is pretty simple, I stamped a tone on tone background with the different pies and stamped and colored another on white cardstock. Then I used a die from Dotted Borders for the doily border and some washi tape on the bottom, easy peasy! :)

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

- Avery Elle dies: Dotted Borders

Some Avery Elle projects :)

Hi there!

Due to my lack of posts in the past weeks, I have some Avery Elle projects that I haven't shared with you here (you can find them on the Avery Elle blog).

My first project uses Furry Friends. I had to stamp the dog with his food and toy, this set is sooooo cute! Then I colored everything with Copic markers and used Avery Elle patterned papers to finish the look. Even with the ribbon and puppy, I think this could work as a masculine card... maybe :)

Dog-gone awesome

My second project uses Amazing stamp set, I made a very feminine tag to decorate a present, everything heat embossed and super simple :)

Amazing friend tag

Finally, for my third project I used Numbered Balloons and Furry Friends again, but this time I stamped the kitty. I colored the balloons with the Copic technique that my buddy Heather used in her card, I really loved it and wanted to give it a try, it looks gorgeous! Then because the kitty looks very proud of herself I added a little collar using liquid pearls so she looks even prettier hehe

Look whos 12

And that's all for now! :)
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a nice day!! And hey, it's Thursday so tomorrow is Friday... Happy weekend! (yes, I'm a positive person lol)

Lawnscaping challenge #106: New technique

Happy Monday!!

Are you ready for a new Lawnscaping challenge? You're going to have fun with this one because we're challenging you to try a new technique!


I struggled a lot about how technique I was going to use because when I see something new that I'm interested on it, I usually try it asap so... what to do? I surfed a bit on the Internet and found this fun technique using watercolors and white pigment ink to create bokeh backgrounds. I love bokeh so I wanted to try it out!

Mine didn't turned as pretty as the one in the video but it's really pretty in person! I added some embossing paste with glitter and sequins for a magical festive background.

Celebrate

Then I die cut the Lawn Fawn balloons and sprayed with a glittery spray, then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to have a pair of glossy balloons :) The whole card ended up being very sparkly, glittery and glosy lol!!

Celebrate - detail

As you can see I used a new technique but also a bunch of old ones. Maybe you haven't tried any of these yet, so it's your chance to give them a try and win a price from our sponsor, Lawn Fawn!

Top Dog Dies guest designer

Hola!!

Sorry for being disapeared lately. I had some personal issues and I had to put my crafty projects aside for a while. I hope you are all right and enjoying your weekend! :)

This post is a bit late but I'm still super excited of having the chance to play with this goodies and try the products from Top Dog Dies. A few weeks ago I was asked to be a guest designer for Top Dog Dies and I can finally share my projects with you!

They were very generous and sent me three die sets from their new release to play with. The entire release is amazing and I love my new dies! They cut perfectly and they're super cute :)

So, for my first project I used the new Dinosaur trio dies and I created a little birthday scene from the past (yeah, they had birthday hats in the past, hadn't they? haha)
I die cut color cardstock for the dinos and added a bit of detail just coloring some parts with a darker Copic.

Dinosaurs

I created the background sponging the base with inks and die cut a mask of post-it for the clouds. I love that die, I used it for the coulds and stones hehe!

Then I stamped the sentiment that is from Lawn Fawn Birthday Tags. And finally,  I added two triangles of patterned papers with a glued mini pompom as their hats, and, of course, googly eyes!

Dinosaurs - detail

My second project uses the Coffee dies set, I love this cute set so much!! I know I'm going to use this a lot for personal stuff and, as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a tag :)

I cut the tag from patterned paper and heat embossed "enjoy" from Let's Play Lawn Fawn stamps. Then I adhered the coffee vase and tied some rusting twine to the tag. I love using mini clothespines to attach my tags to their packages, they are too cute!

Coffee

I added a hidden mesagge to my tag by cutting the vase twice and scoring the top of the second piece (the one non-decorated) so it can be opened easier. Then I stamped the sentiment before glueing the two parts just on the top. The sentiment is from Love you a Latte Lawn Fawn stamps, all the sentiments in this set go great with the coffee die! <3

Coffee closed

Coffee - detail

My third and final project is another card that I made using the Banners #1 die set and scraps. I love when I can use my scraps because I don't like to throw away even small pieces of my pretty patterned paper :)

Banners

For this card I used those stripes printed on the bottom of 12x12 patterned paper pages or even on the top of some 6x6 patterned paper stacks. The banners dies are just the perfect size!
I die cut some banners, hand stitched one of them and added embellishments from my stash and a simple and colorful card is done :)

Banners - detail

Lawnscaping challenge #105: Watercolors

Hello!
It's time for another Lawnscaping challenge!

Watercolors keep being super trendy and it's a fun and versatile technique that most of us love so I know you'll love this challenge!


I  used watercolors to color the background that I previously stamped with Lunar Lights. It's hard to see in the picture but I also used a Sparkle Shimmer Spritzto give the whole background a pretty sparkly look.

Maneki Neko Wish

I also used watercolors to color Maneki Neko and then I put it on a glitter banner to finish the card. I'm not very happy with this card... It took me a while to finish it and I hope I find my inspiration back soon!! 

Anyway, I'd be super happy if you join us with your watercolors on this fun challenge! We're sponsored by Ellen Hutson, so you could win a $25 gift certificate to their store! yay!!
