I'm here today sharing a set of cards using the fun Peek A Boo Scary Pals from Avery Elle. 

I followed the same desing for my three cards, starting by stamping a colorful background using the Starry Scene background stamp and adding some elements on top. These cards are great for all occasions, just change the sentiment or add a birthday hat if you are up to! ;)

I colored the monsters with Copic markers and die cut the clouds, grass and snow using different Avery Elle dies. Then, I stamped the same sentiment on the three cards, using black ink and another one that matched the card color scheme. Finally I tied some twine under the senitment and added several white sequins.

I hope you feel inspired to create some mosnter cards! Thank you so much for visiting and have a nice day!!

Celebrate Summer


Today I have a very summery card to share with you. I've combined the shark from the Summer Pals stamp set (I love the critters from this set so much!!) with different dies from Dotted Frame to create this easy but colorful card.

I started by coloring the background, sun and water using Distress inks and a blending tool. For the water I sprinkled some water and ink on top to add texture. Then I stamped the floater and shark and colored them with alcohol markers. I also added some accents here and there with a white pen. I love using this technique on images that are supposed to be shiny or wet.

After adhering all the scene images, I added the frame on top using dimensional adhesive. I always love to adhere several die cut sentiments to end up with a word that looks like a pre-made chipboard element.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you feel inspired! Have a wonderful day!

Avery Elle Summer Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Avery Elle Summer release blog hop!

The new release is full of amazing and very summery products, I know you're totally going to love it!
I'm showcasing the new Peak A Boo Summer Pals stamp set and coordinating dies, a set full of cute sea/summer critters that is perfect to send some love and cheer anyone up :)

I've made two projects using this set, a card and a pair of tags.

For the card I started by coloring the background with watercolors and spraying it with the new Clear Shimmer Spray by Avery Elle. It's hard to see in the pictures but it's really pretty in person!

Then I continued by stamping, coloring with alcohol markers and die cutting the critters. I added some details like some coral and seaweed that I also colored with markers.

Finally I adhered a stripe with the embossed sentiment and several sequins.

As soon as I saw the seagull I knew I wanted to create some tags using him, he's so fun and cute!!

I used Distress inks and Avery Elle watercolors for the background and colored the image with alcohol markers. I love the solid world bubble with the hello sentiment included in this set!!

I hope you feel inspired to create some projects with this amazing set of adorable critters. Here's some info about our blog hop giveaway (good luck!):

Phonomenal Day - Avery Elle card

Hi there!

I'm here today sharing a card featuring the Phonomental stamp set and coordinating dies by Avery Elle. I love big images that can easily be the main focus on a card like the bowl in this set. I love all the little elements that are also included to customize your bowl of food.

I started by coloring the background with Distress inks and a blenidng tool. Then I sprinkled some water, orange ink and gold ink all over the panel to give it more texture and some shine. I wanted to match the golden drops somehow so I rubbed two stripes of cardstock with versamark ink and heat embossing them completely using Rich Gold metallic powder.

Then, I continued by stamping, die cutting and coloring all of the pieces for my scene. For the bowl I used a patterned paper and then I added some shadows with a pair of blue markers.

Finally, I assembled everything together and stamped the sentiment with blue ink. I enjoyed a lot the creation process of this card, the bold colors that adds energy (and hot to the pho) and the golden shine that are very pretty in person.

I hope you like my project for today! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a phonomenay day! *wink*
