Sweet hugs and kisses card

Hi there!!

Just a quick post to share with you my Avery Elle card for this week. I'm featuring Love Bird stamps and coordinating dies from the latest release in this little spring-y card.

I wanted to create a simple card with soft tones and perfect for lots of occassions so I kept the sentiment to that "xo" from Favorite Person stamp set.

I created the background stripes with watercolors and colored the girl and frame with Copic makers. I hope you like it!

Thanks for your visit, big hugs!! :)

Lawn Fawn CHA Sneak Week - Year Seven + Valentine's card video

Hi there!!

CHA is just around the corner and Lawn Fawn will be sharing an amazing new release that I'm sure you are going to love!!
So because we all can't go to CHA (like me... *sob*) this week we are going to show a lot of projects as a CHA sneak peak of the new products :)

Using some of the new stuff I made this fun birthday card:

I used several new sets that you will soon meet: Year Seven (that features that adorable piñata!), Happy Happy Happy and Bannertastic.

I colored everything with Copic markers and gold paint and heat embossed the banner. I hope you like it!! :)

Also, I have another project to share with you made with products that are already available to buy, I'm talking about the latest Valentine's release :)

I made a card with a gift card holder (am I the only one that giggles with the giving a card with a gift card concept?) and I made also a video to show you how I made it. This is my first video of 2017, sorry for the wait, my inspiration has been lost somewhere! :S

I had been hoarding this pink paper to set as background for my cards pictures but when I came up with this idea and saw that the portion of dictionary that would be in the inside of the heart contained the LOVE word, I had to use it, it's just a cute touch, isn't it? I love it!

I hope you like my projects for today (and video!). Be sure to check the Lawn Fawn blog for tooons more projects made with the upcoming release and don't miss all week's posts and giveaways at the Lawn Fawn blog!

Hugs & Season's Givings winner


I enjoyed a lot reading all your Season's Givings comments about your crafty goals for 2017... you made me smile and laugh and I'm with you in lots of them  :) One that I read a lot is sending more of the cards that you made... I'm totally in! I have boxes full of cards and it happens that I only send my Christmas cards... I'll try to send out more cards to my friends this year! I really love when I get an unexpected card in the mail so I want to share that feeling ;)

And now (yes.. I'm leaving the winner to the end of the post haha) I have a set of cards using Avery Elle products to share with you, they are super simple to make but very handy because they fit lots of occassions!

I combined different dies with the Simply Said Hugs stamps and dies on white cardstock and colored the card base with Distress inks, then I adhered the white panels yo the card bases and added some wooden stars for a bit of dimension.

And now it comes the moment you've been waiting for....
The winner of the Season's Givings giveaway is...

A pair of sweet cards

Now that I finished sharing my Christmas projects it's time for other kind of stuff!

Last week I couldn't make a single card :S After all Christmas ideas and creations it was like... but is there anything more than Christmas?? And it seemed my mojo totally left me alone... with nothing crafty to do... Well, I've been practicing my caligraphy a bit haha

Finally it seems that inspiration is coming back and I've been able to create this Valentine's card with one of my Avery Elle all time favorites: Ellie the elephant (it even sounds the cutest!!). The new Favorite Person stamps are just the perfect sentiments with the perfect font to finish off this sweet card. I hope you like it!!

I first stamped the background with all the different sentiments (I've seen this on ascrapbooking layout and loved it so much!) and then used my Picket Fence paint to tone it down a bit. I colored Ellie with copics and the scalloped heart with Distress inks.

I'm also sharing this card that I forgot to publish on my blog (Christmas rush, you know u.u) using the new and super cool Letter Balloons dies with the hedgie from Hedgehugs.

I colored the background with watercolors and the hedgie and balloons with Copic markers.

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a nice start of the year!! :D
