4 Cards With Avery Elle

Good morning, friends! I hope you're enjoying one of the last Saturdays of summer. I'm headed to the beach for my writer's group picnic in a little bit, but before I go, I wanted to share the results of my craft session yesterday. 

Before I left for Germany, I was taking part in Kathy Racoosin's The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge, which is great for building up your stash of colored images. I pulled out all the ones from Avery Elle's Woodland Wonders, and determined to use them all in as many cards as I could make.

Since I love cards with full scenes, I made sure to use at least a couple of these cute critters per card, and ended up with four cards in total. I had to color and die cut extra elements like trees, bushes, and grass to pull the whole look together, but it was a lot easier having the images colored and die-cut before I began.

I went ahead and filmed the entire process. I hope you enjoy it! Click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner of the video player to watch it there in HD, and please don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe! Also, I recently hit 10,000 subscribers on my channel (crazy!) so I'm putting together a celebratory video hop with special guests and awesome prizes. That will take place next month, so stay tuned!

Have an awesome weekend!

Kraken Birthday - Lawnscaping Challenge #136

Hey friends! Are you ready for another Lawnscaping Challenge? This one is super fun because it's out punny-est challenge yet! We all know that Lawn Fawn is great with the puns, so this one should be super easy to play along.

I had to use Lovable Legends to make a birthday card for my water and critter loving nephew. This set is right up his alley! I colored my images with Copics and die cut my focal panel with the Stitched Journaling Card die.

Lawn Fawn is also our gracious sponsor this round, so our winner will receive a FREE stamp set of their choice! Just in time for their brand-new release too! Now that's motivation to enter! Please stop by the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing design team samples and link up your project to play along.

Have a great day! Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hoppy Birthday - Lawnscaping Challenge #135

Good morning, friends! Wow, can you believe we have already entered August? Back-to-school month? I'm not ready to think about it. Let's district ourselves with a new challenge, shall we? Haha! It's time for Lawnscaping Challenge #135: Patterned Palooza!

This one is right up my alley, because I am addicted to patterned paper! I used four different prints on my card layout, to serve as a pretty backdrop to my cute bunny from Happy Easter with sunflowers from Our Friendship Grows.

Our sponsor this round is the lovely Ellen Hutson, LLC who has generously offered up a $25 gift certificate to our winner. So hop on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to link up your projects, and be sure to check out the other amazing design team samples while you're there!

Waving Hello - Lawnscaping Challenge #133

Hey friends! Happy 4th! As I'm sitting here typing this up, it's the night before, and I'm watching early revelers set off fireworks against the sunset sky. Pretty!

But my card today for the current Lawnscaping Challenge, which is inspired by this incredible Mood Board, features more of a sunrise, though I suppose it really could be either. I used Lawn Fawn's new Mermaid for You along with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens for my images and Distress Inks for my background. A little stickles to dress things up.

Please head over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing design team samples and be inspired by our mood board to create your own projects. 

The winner will receive a generous $25 gift certificate donated by the lovely Ellen Hutson, LLC.

Wishing all my friends here in the States a happy Independence Day! Thanks so much for stopping by.
