Elegant Christmas tags with Avery Elle

Hi there!

Today I'm featuring the Snow Tags stamps and coordinating die at the Avery Elle blog. 
As soon as I saw these snowflake stamps I knew I was going to create something with vellum involved. 

Finally, I decided to make a pair of Christmas tags. I started by stamping and heat embosing the snowflakes on vellum, using white embossing powder. 
Then I used the coordinating die to cut them and another two dies out of watercolor paper. I took my AE liquid watercolors and randomly colored the snowflake bases.

While the bases were drying, I cut two banners out of white cardstock and stamped the sentiments from the Snowflakes stamp set.
The final step was mounting all together. I used my Crop a Dile to place an eyelet on the tags, then I adhered the banners on top, added some golden sequins as a finishing touch and last, tied some golden string.

I hope you like what I made for today, maybe these tags inspire you a bit to create your own Christmas tags, it's a fun process and they're really pretty in real life!

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day!

Pink Christmas card ft. Avery Elle Wonky Circle Frames


Today I'm featuring the new super cool Wonky Circle Frames at the Avery Ell blog!
I love these kind of dies that are so versatile. It's perfect to frame a sentiment, a scene, an image, create a shaker...

Every year I love to create at least a Christmas card with a pink color combo, this time I combined it with aqua to create this little shaker card.

I kept the design very simple but I added lots of sparkle :)

I used the pretty Hatch Mat die to add texture to my background, then I created my shaker with the biggest die of the Wonky Circle Frames, cutting one layer of white glittery cardstock and another from foam. I stamped the sentiment from Comfor & Joy on acetate and filled the skaker with a mix of sequins and some Avery Elle Coarse Glitter.

Finally I added the cute penguin from A Merry Little Christmas set (which I previously colored with alcohol markers and die cut) and tied some Aquamarine Hemp Twine on top.

I hope you like it!! Have a wonderful day! :)

Lawn Fawn August inspiration week review (part 2)

Hello everyone!!

Today I'm sharing another pair of cards that I made for the Lawn Fawn August inspiration week!

So Owlsome

I'm starting for my project that features So Owlsome, a medium stamp set with coordingating dies that is perfect for back of school, teacher appreciation or graduation cards.

I made a colorful card with several layers, starting with a yellow background die cut from the Itsy Blitsy Polkadot Backdrop die. Then I added a piece of patterned paper from the Really Rainbow collection and finally a "chalkboard" panel. To create the chalkboard look, I rubbed white ink with my fingers all along the borders of the panel, die cut out of black cardstock.

The little owls were colored with Copic markers and then I added some touches of Glossy Accents on the glasses and apple for some shine.
For the sentiment I used the Thanks Teacher Line Border die (die cut three times and glued together) with a sentiment from the set (heat embossed on a little banner).
Finally, I added a last detail, a little wooden clothespin with a bow made of twine glued on top.

Knit Pick Fall & Caramel Apple

The new Fall paper collection is called Knit Pick Fall and it just yells cozy! I made card combining several papers from this collection with the new Caramel Apple mini stamp set and a new favorite: a piece of woodrgain cardstock.

I centered the elements of this card so everything focuses the eye on the pair of caramel apples. I used different Stitched dies (Circle and Square) to create the central panel and added a detail with the scalloped border die.

I colored the apples with Copic makers and covered them with Glossy Accents, I love the look, so yummy!!

I hope you like these projects, thank you so much for stopping by today, have an amazing day!!
