Goodie bag & Penguin - LF Fall/Winter sneaks

Hi there!!
Are you excited with the new Lawn Fawn release!? Cause I am! It's so fun and full of cuteness!!

Today I'm sharing a new die: Goodie Bag, is it cute or what?? It is the perfect size for a little gift, a treat or a gift card, it fits all normal cutting machines like Big Shot, Cuttlebug, Vagabond... You have to cut it twice and ensembling the bag is soo easy!
I hadn't received the new papers when I made it so I used last year's Fall collection Into the Woods (by the way it's on sale at the Lawn Fawn store!! Don't miss it!) and paired it with Let's Polka and some old dies and stamps. But also with some new stuff: the new die alphabet Finley's ABCs that I LOVE and that super cute frame from Sweater Weather.

Goodie Bag
I had in mind some little treat to put on this bag and place on the Thanksgiving table, with the guests initial so it's a little gift and a "place card" all in one :)

My second project features the new Winter Penguin. I must confess that every year I'm wondering what will be the new Winter Critter mini set and it's always one of my favorite from the release. This year is no exception!! How cute is this little penguin??? I looooove it!!

Winter Penguin
I used a stencil and embossing paste for the snow background and stickles on the sentiment. The snow is die cut with Stitched Hillside Borders, it's not easy to see but I tell you that these dies are a must have!! Oh! And the little snowflake on the top is from Stitched Snowflakes :)

And that's all for now, I hope you like my projects! Don't forget to check the Lawn Fawn blog to see the complete release, lots of projects and giveaways :)

BTW I'm super happy because tomorrow is a blank holiday here so weekend starts earlier and I'll go to the beach!! Yay! And when I come back I'm going to leave again all week camping :D I'm so excited!

Avery Elle Masculine card

Hi again ;)

Here's my second post today, if you're here looking for my Lawnscaping challenge card, just click here or scroll down :)

Today I'm featuring a set of dies from the June Avery Elle release, Signature dies. The're a fun and basic shape that will fit on every project.


I paired these dies with the new papers from Avery Elle and tried my hand at a masculine card.You know I barely make masculine cards, I'm soooo bad on them, lol! For some reason I need to add cute elements to almost all my cards :P

Masculine thanks

I nested two of the dies to create the big shape and just cut a smaller circle for a very CAS design. The sentiment is from Many thanks, just inking the superior part. I love  this color combo, cool shades are my favorite and this aqua-teal-green is so fresh!! I hope you like it!

Supply list:
- Avery Elle stamps: Many Thanks
- Avery Elle dies: Signature dies
- Avery Elle papers: The Sorbet Collection
- Enamel accents
- Washi tape
- Versamark ink

Happy Monday!!
How was your weekend? Mine was rainy lol but I enjoyed it anyways and we started to plan our holiday camping trip, I hope the weather will great to go to the beach but if not, we can visit new places :)

But I'm here today for another reason that sharing my plans ;) It's Monday and we have a new Lawnscaping challenge for you!! A really fun one, do you love playing with watercolors? Because I do!!

I had fun making and coloring my card even when it's really simple. It's almost a one layer card and I love that fun watercolor polka dot background, I really felt like a child while coloring it. Also, I'm happy of having used Sally's ABCs for my sentiment, it's a really pretty alphabet and it was a long time since I used it for the last time.

You are so sweet

Check the other DT members' projects, they are amazing! And join us this time, it will be fun, I tell you! If you don't own watercolors you can have a lot of options to use and achieve the same look: distress inks, distress markers, watercolor pencils, ink refills... I used cheap watercolors for children and I love them hehehe :)

Avery Elle & Authentique week - You're radiant

Hi there!!
I hope your weekend was amazing!  We have been enjoying great weather finally, crossing fingers it lasts a lot!!

It's Authentique and Avery Elle week!  This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with Authentique papers, Life Cards and embellishments.  After visiting here, be sure to check out the Authentique Blog for even more inspiration using both companies products!  Don't forget to comment on the blogs throughout to week to be entered to win a fabulous prize!

One of my favorite products from Authentique are these little books of journaling cards (ohh and the pack of pre-blended card bases are great too!!), I know it's weird, I'm not a scrapbooker but I absolutely love them, so I picked 2 and made a card using the diamond from Avery Elle Many Thanks stamp set. I think the journaling card matches perfectly with it hee hee.

You can see also some of the new Avery Elle paper on the base ;)

I used a Wink of Stella clear pen on the inside of the letters and on the diamond to emphasize the whole message and I love the final result but it's really hard to appreciate it on the picture :/

You are radiant

Here's a closer pic and you can see the shimmer better in this one but in real person it looks so cool!! Any tips on taking pics to cards with Wink of Stella?

You are radiant - detail

Lawnscaping challenge #: Summer colors

Hi there and happy Monday!
It's time for another Lawnscaping challenge! This time we are challenging you to use only these colors on your project (black and white are ok too): Yellow, orange and teal. What a perfect summer color combo, don't you think? I love it!

It was easy for me to decide a theme and stamp set for my card: Summer, beach... Life is good is too perfect :) So here's what I made! The sentiment is from the mini set Happy Summer.

Happy summer

I used Prismacolor pencils to color all the images. I noticed I'm slower coloring with them than coloring with Copics but is very relaxing so I don't mind :)
BTW, Have you been enjoying the beach already? I hope to go soon but the past two weeks the weather was not very good so I hope it gets better and I finally can go swimming in the see and enjoy some sun :)

Don't forget to visit the Lawnscaping challenges blog for more inspiration on this challenge! It'd be great if you join us and play with us this time, you could win a Simon Says Stamp $25 coupon!
