Lawn Fawn/Marvy collab

Hi there!

We've reached the end of our Lawn Fawn/Marvy collaboration week, and I'm showing off my contribution:

Lawn Fawn/Marvy collab

The folks at Marvy were so generous and sent me a set of Le Plume markers. They are alcohol markers like Copics, and blend beautifully. I used them to color the plane (from Plane and Simple,) the edge of the clouds, and the banner.  I will definitely be reaching for them again!

The custom sentiment was a labor of love. I saw it on a chalkboard print and wanted to recreate it on my card. The latter part was easy - I used Riley's ABCs to spell out AIRPLANES FLY. No problemo.

For the first half, that I slipped into the banner, I spliced letters and words together from Sewn With Love. What you see here is not my first try, but I thought the sentiment was so sweet and I'm a little stubborn.

I hope you like it! There's more to see on the LF blog this morning - click!

We are excited to announce that we have teamed up with Ellen Hutson to bring you a very special exclusive stamp and coordinating die set!  G'day Mate features the cutest unique critters! This United We Flourish set is sold exclusively at Ellen Hutson and you can find it here.

Below is a little bit more about Ellen Hutson's United We Flourish program:

Last November we began celebrating our 10th anniversary with the theme United We Flourish. And what does United We Flourish mean? It means that our company would not be here without the amazing companies we work with, the designers who create stunning projects showcasing the wonderful products being created AND you, our fabulous customers! YOU are such a vital part of our creative community - you inspire & encourage us! Your response to United We Flourish was overwhelming and heart-warming. We heard repeatedly from you that you appreciate how our little company works together with the other manufacturers we carry to bring you their products and education showing how to use those products. To thank you for your constant support and encouragement, we have partnered with some of our friends to offer exclusive limited edition stamp & die sets!!! These sets will be available for a limited time (most likely 3-6 months) after each release, depending on how quickly you snap them up. The theme of these stamps sets are uplifting and fun.

We are thrilled to present the second one to you... G’Day Mate Avery Elle exclusively for Ellen Hutson LLC.


That koala stole my heart. I did some ink blending and gave the koala and his baby center stage.

The sentiment just cracks me up. I layered the Burst Elle-ments onto a Horizontal Stripes Elle-ments layer. These dies make it so easy to come up with a card design!

I love the little fishing hole! I masked off the edges and stamped a few fish into the opening.

Lawn Fawn 2017 fall/winter sneak peek week!

Hi there!

Lawn Fawn is unveiling their fall/winter collection this week.  It's a goooood one!

I don't know that I'm ready to craft in Halloween colors yet, though, so I used the new Costume Party set to make this girly unicorn card.

I had so much fun coloring this little images!

Next up, I did go a bit fall-ish with the new set, Forest Feast:

I mean, let's be honest. I'll take a piece of pumpkin pie any time of year!

The giant tree stump is such a winner. I will be using it again and again for sure. And that racoon? So nice, I stamped it twice. ha.

Dreamboat (with Avery Elle)

Hi there!

I'm here and on the Avery Elle blog today with a card that combines the newer Waves Ellements coverplate and a older favorite, Dreamboat.

Dreamboat (with Avery Elle)

This is the kind of card that looks so much cuter in real life than in photos! The subtle, light coloring is really hard to capture. In any case, I chopped the waves die-cut to make room for the gondola on top. I love those wavy layers! I kept all of the pieces intact, and it gives a gorgeous texture that way.

It's a little hard to see, but I added some shading to the waves with a copic marker and flicked white ink over the top to give even more interest to that piece.

I did some pink ink-blending behind the couple, and kept the coloring of their outfits and hair very light. I curved the sentiment so that it mirrored the waves below.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

more Schoolhouse (with Neat and Tangled)

Hi there!

I'm here and on the NT blog this morning with a couple of cards using the new Schoolhouse stamp set.

more Schoolhouse (with Neat and Tangled)


I would give this card to my kids on the first day of school. I used Schoolhouse and a sentiment from Awesome.

The ink blending was done with mint and yellow, and I love where it blends to a green somewhere in the middle. The little mouse handing the fox his lunchbox is my fave!

My second card shows how the little critters can be used outside of the school theme. The little mice are handing the birthday fox some treats and gifts for his special day. The little images are from the also-new Puppy's Favorite Things.

I hope you like what I've created! Thanks for stopping by!
