Pick of the Pacth - Lawn Fawn August inspiration week

Hi there!

It's Lawn Fawn inspiration week! In the next days we will be featuring the new Lawn Fawn release products that will be finally for sale on August 23rd!

Today the star of the show is the new Halloween set: Pick of the Patch. I love the customizable pumpkins included in the set! There's also a fun pumpkin add-on for the reveal wheel so I had to use it with this set to create my card and play with the different faces haha

Another new product that I used on my card is the cool Spooky Fence Border. I think it adds a fun touch! I kept the design of the card pretty simple.
For the background, I colored the sky with Distress inks, added some pretty stars (from glittery white cardstock) and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

All the images are colored with Copic markers and adhered to the background with dimensional adhesive. I wanted to add a cute detail to the spooky scene with the sleeping kitty and I love it!

I hope you like my card too! Don't forget to ckeck out the Lawn Fawn blog to see tons of inspiration using these new products!

Thank you so much for your visit, have a nice day!!

Avery Elle Fall 2018 Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Avery Elle Fall blog hop!

I hope you're enjoying the hop! I'm so excited to finally be able to share with you these new goodies :)

I made two Christmas cards mixing some of the new sets.

For my first one I used Starry Scene and Merry Little Christmas to create this fun festive scene. First, I stamped the background with the stars from the set and silver ink and added a little stripe of silver glittery cardstock.

Then, I colored the critters with Copic markers and stamped the sky with Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment stamped on the banner is from an old set, Merry Flowers. I love all the little critters included in the Merry Little Christmas set!

For my second card I used Starry Scene and one of the sentiments from Snow Tags. I wanted a simple design, something calm, maybe more neutral or masculine and I really like the result. This set, Starry Scene, was love at first sight <3

I stamped the background with different colors of dye inks, using my MISTY and stamping it several times. Then I heat embossed the mountains on watercolor paper using white embossing powder and I colored them with AE liquid watercolors.

Miss you - Avery Elle card


Today I'm sharing a card featuring the Oval Burst die from Avery Elle. I love the way this die frames any scene or sentiment, like its old square version is a total must :)

I used the cute hippo from Peek A Boo Pals stamping it twice and coloring them with Copic markers. I keep using my liquid watercolors wherever I can because I love them very much so I painted the water with them and I really love the results. Then I added some sequins here and there to simulate sparkling water and match the sentiment :)

For the sentiment, I first stamped one of the phrases included in the Peek A Boo Pals set and then I completed it with a die cut from the A Tag For All dies. 
Finally, I used the Oval Burst die to frame the whole scene and sentiment, decorating it with some clouds from the Love is in the Air die set.

Thank you so much for your visit, have a nice day!!
