Thanks a Latte - Avery Elle card

Hello!

I'm here today with a warm coffee card to share with you featuring Cool Beans stamps and dies from Avery Elle. It's cold outside and I really love coffee so I decided to create a warm and cozy card using this great set.


Thinking about Winter and cozy a pattern cames to my mind: buffalo plaid. So I took a piece of red cardstock, black watercolor and a white gel pen and I created my own buffalo plaid patterned background. I wanted it to look handmade and messy so I didn't put a lot of care while drawing it.


The rest of the card is pretty simple, just some stamping, die cutting and embossing. For the stitched frame and big sentiment I used another die set from the newest release: Wonky Squares. An easy card to warm a friend during these cold days. I hope you like it!

Thanks for you visit, have a nice day!

Sweet Friends & Conversation Heart - Lawn Fawn December inspiration week

Hello and welcome to the Lawn Fawn December inspiration and release week!


Oh gosh, if you're like me, you're going to love each of the new stamps and dies, they are absolutely adorable! This release is all about Valentine's Day but, as allways, you can use most products all year round. For example, I've used the new Sweet Friends set to create this fun thank you card.


I enjoyed a lot coloring all the images from this set with my Copic markers and once I finished, I decided I wanted to use them all. I needed a long card for that but  I kept it very simple. I just colored the background with watercolors in a rainbow palette and added a pair of stripes of patterned paper. I tried to arrange the different sweets matching the background colors.


Today we're featuring a new add-on set for the How You Bean? Stamps and dies: Conversation Heart. I decided to use this set without the main set to give you some inspiration if you don't have it.


I combined the pile of hearts with one of the cats and a sentiment from the Meow You Doin'? set. I colored the cat with Copics but all the hearts are just stamped with different Lawn Fawn inks. You can see also anothe project from the new release, that cute border from Lacy Borders.


I hope you like my projects for today! Please check the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspirations, videos and giveaways!

Thanks for stopping by, have a nice Sunday!

Waffle Flower V-Day Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Waffle Flower V-Day Blog Hop!



Waffle Flower's releases are always full of unique and amazing products and this one is no exception! I've been playing a bit with the new stuff and I had a lot of fun!

So I have two cards to share with you, for the first one I used the Stitched Love stamps and dies. This is my first cross-stitch set and I really love it! The final look is super cool!

I used several tones of green and pale yellow inks to stamp the pears and make them look dimensional. For the background I used the Plaid Play stamps to create my own plaid patterned paper.


I only used stamps, dies and inks this time, no embellishments, twine or enamel accents, no coloring at all. And this is not what I use to do but I really enjoyed the process, it was fun and I like the final card :)


For my second card I took my Prismacolor pencils and enjoyed some coloring. I used the new Little Bakers set (is it cute or what?) and create this card. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and added that Mini 3D Bow as a little finishing touch. 


After stamping the hearts on the background I used my Wink of Stella pen on them to add some shine. Because like in baking, the secret ingredient in crafting is love. And some sparkling hehe
