Christmas card with AE Seasonal Sentiments

Hi again!

This is my second post today, if you're here to see my Lawnscaping challenge card, click here or just scroll down. Thanks!! <3

It's my turn on the Avery Elle blog today and I'm featuring a new stamp set Seasonal Sentiments, with fun sentiments+images perfect for Fall and Winter celebrations.


I chose to play with the Christmas sentiment and I thought it would be fun to try a chalkboard look with it, but adding a little more interest just coloring some parts of the image with Copics.

Then I added a red doily and finished with some black pearls, I touched them with my (pigment white) inky fingers to give them a matte finish so they match better with the chalkboard look.

I hope you like what I made today! Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Supply list:
- Avery Elle stamps: Seasonal Sentiments
- Lawn Fawn papers: Snow Day
- Crate Paper papers: Love Note
- Lawn Fawn twine: Silver Sparkle

Welcome - Avery Elle We R Family

Hi again!

This is my second post today, it looks like Mondays are always the busiest day on my blog he he!

Last week, Avery Elle released a ton of amazing new products for the upcoming Fall and Winter seasons including Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas stamps and dies. I love everything!!
It's my turn showcasing two nes stamps and a die that coordinate perfectly and that will help you with some family-related projects. They are: We R Family, We R Family Additions and We R Family Elle-ments dies


I love the fonts in this set and I think that if you're a scrapbooker this is perfect for many occassions!! Also the dies are just amazing!

Sweet Baby Girl

As a cardmaker I think you can use it a lot as well: for mother or father's day, a birthday, welcoming a new member to the family or a new baby... And this last one was my choice for my card today. I couldn't help myself and I added that super cute hedgehog from the new stamps set by Heather: More Stories. But I couldn't stop there, too many new goodies, you know about what I'm talking, don't you?  :) So the little hearts and bow are from Finished Frames dies and then I used Avery Elle patterned papers and inks... I love when everything match great together!

Have a super nice day today! Hugs!

Supply list:
- Avery Elle stamps: We R Family, We R Family Additions, More Stories
- Avery Elle dies: We R Family
- Avery Elle papers: Sorbet Collection

Halloween treat bags video!

Hi there!
I made a video showing how I made the monster treat bags using Goodie Bag by Lawn Fawn that I shared here on the blog during August release week, I think that they're super easy to make and a fun and cute way to give treats on Halloween :)

Monster bags

Here's the video, I hope you enjoy it and give the little bags a try!



Note: I know my english is not perfect and I'm so sorry about that! Someone left a comment on Youtube about my spelling mistake on "symmetrical". I'm sorry if that bothers you while watching the video, ugh! I don't like to find mistakes either while I'm reading but it's easier to write well in your first language lol.
I'm happy because my English has improved a lot since I started my blog and I hope it will become better and better in the future. Thanks for your help with that! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by, hugs!!

Avery Elle Fall Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to my hop on the Avery Elle Fall Blog Hop!

I'm so excited to finally share all the new Avery Elle stuff for this Fall and Winter. This release is full of amazing stamps, dies, new ink colors and... a new patterned paper collection! You're going to love it!


I've been playing with the new Halloween stamp set and coordinating dies: Boo. It's a great set, I love the fonts on the sentiments and that spider web die is great! I used it on my first card with some glittery cardstock and I love the look of the black glittery spider web:

Spider

I've been seeing those watercolor ombre backgrounds around the web and I wanted to make my own but I used distress inks and then splashed some water and sprayed some mr.huey's mists on top.

When I stamped the spider I added some shine with my Wink of Stella pen and googly eyes for a more cute spooky spider he he

Spider - detail

For my second card I went with the ghosts and cut the frame with one of the new dies, the frame from We R Family. The cool background patterned paper is from the new Everyday collection. I really love it!! It's full of amazing and basic patterns that you can use on all your projects!

Finally, I added some stickles to the stars and cut the ghosts with the dies twice, one of the layers is from vellum, to give them a more ghost-y look. I hope you like it!

Spooktacular

Lawnscaping Challenge #89: One Layer

Happy Monday!!
I'm a little late this time with my post, sorry!! I'm full of work these days! But I'm finally here with my project to inspire you to join us in the new Lawnscaping Challenge: One Layer!


I know most of you are not fans of one layer cards, to be honest, I'm not a fan either. If you check my cards you will notice that I always use layers and layers... Anyway I think you must give this challenge a try because it's a true challenge and true challenges are really fun!

I made a simple card with Summer still in mind ;) I love that s'more stamp and it's my first time using it, I combined it with Woodgrain Backdrops for a natural look. Now the little s'mores have their cheeks colored too with a bit of pink but I had no time to take again the picture, ugh! You would have to believe me, they look more cute now hee hee!

S'Mores

C'mon, join us! And remember, just one piece of cardstock is allowed: the card base :) For more inspiration check the amazing DT projects on the Lawnscaping blog!
