Pumpkins (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn's August inspiration week. We're showing off items from the fall/winter collection before it all becomes available for sale on August 22nd.

Today, we're showing off the Outside In Stitched Pumpkin dies. I made a card and gift bag set using the new dies:

I used the yellow (ripe banana) paper from the Spiffy Speckles pad, sponging orange ink over-top. I liked that the end result was a very soft orange, with all of that texture from the patterned paper.

Build-A-House (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome to Lawn Fawn's August inspiration week! At the end of the inspiration week, the fall/winter collection will (finally!) be available for purchase - on August 22nd.

Today is our showcase of Build-A-House, Reveal Wheel Build-A-House Add On, Build-A-House Halloween Add-On, and Tiny Halloween.

I, weirdly enough, used everything but the Build-A-House Halloween Add-On to create this spooktacular card:

I would like to take a minute to celebrate that this is the first Reveal Wheel card that I was able to make without consulting a how-to You Tube video. haha. I think I finally got the hang of it!

I love the "turn here to spook" sentiment included in Tiny Halloween, as well as the tiny images that you can add to the open window!

I love that it pairs with the new circle Reveal Wheel shape! The extra kitties coming to get their fortunes read are from Say What? Pets and Keep On Swimming.

What do you think? Super cute, huh? I did some ink-blending using Lawn Fawn's Hippo ink, and added both white and black paint splatters on top of that before adding the images.

Flippin' Awesome (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

It's so much fun! I created 4 square scenes, using images from Spooky Village. When you pull on the tab, the tiles cascade one after the other.

I stamped out BOO at the end, because it was too sad to leave it blank, but I also am not in the habit of giving out gift-cards for Halloween. For Christmas, though... I plan on adding one there.

I added the new Happy Halloween Line Border in lieu of a stamped sentiment. I also added little die-cut ghosts and other spooky things - they are part of the new Build A House Halloween Add-On.

Spooky Village (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

It's time for Lawn Fawn's August inspiration week! At the end of the week everything will (finally) be available for purchase - you've been so patient! August 22nd will be here before you know it.

Today, the design team is showing off cards made with Spooky Village:

Spooky Village (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

This set is so cute! I just love all of the tinier elements - the little pumpkin patch, the graves, and of course, the teeny trick or treaters! I just find the candy-corn costume so hilarious.

The graphic, black sky and the kraft colored hills allow all of the colored houses to really stand out.

Holiday Characters (new EBE release!)

Hi there!



There's a new Essentials by Ellen release and we're celebrating with a fun blog hop! There is a lot of eye-candy along every stop of the hop, and there are prizes to be won too!

Holiday Characters (EBE new release!)


I used the new (and super adorable) Holiday Characters stamp set to create this card. It was designed by Julie Ebersole and so perfect for fun holiday cards and tags.

Holiday Characters (EBE new release!)

I started out by stamping and die-cutting all of the images. I then colored them in using copic markers. It was hard to tell in that first photo, but after I arranged all of the images, I created a shaker in front of them all. I didn't add too much of the chunky glitter but just enough so that when you shake it, it adds a sparkly dust to the background. Christmas magic!

Holiday Characters (EBE new release!)

I hid all of the foam tape around the edges with a white rectangle frame die (from Lawn Fawn) and then heat-embossed a sentiment (from the Mondo Holly stamp set) on a strip of black cardstock. I love a super-simple/unfussy sentiment when the rest of the card already has so much going already.

I hope you like it! Now, onto the fun stuff - PRIZES.

We've got super fun prizes!!! One random & lucky commenter will win $25 to the EH shop and one will win the whole July Essentials by Ellen release!!! To enter for a chance to win, make sure to leave comments at each stop along the hop! Comment before Thursday, August 15th at 11:59pm PST. Winners will be notified by email.

Here is a full list of blog hop participants for today - enjoy!

Pool party fun (Avery Elle)

Hi there!

I'm here and on the Avery Elle blog today with this summery card:

pool party (Avery Elle)


It's a clean-and-simple design that packs a colorful punch. I set the scene for the lounging ladies with a pink sky and light blue waves (courtesy of the Summer Scene Elle-ments). I then brought in the girls from Pool Party and set them right into the surf. I love the little drink floating right along with them!

I frame out the scene using the Pierced Hexagon Elle-ments die, and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of dark grey cardstock.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
