"Winter cards" featuring... Avery Elle!

I'm super excited today to show you a couple of winter themed cards. I used my new stamp set "Polar Pals" by Avery Elle and I created a scene for my critters to stand with distress inks and perfect pearls.
Let me show the cards and I'll tell you more..! 

This new set is full of critters and I love theme all .. but maybe these two cute bears are my fave! :)
They are super elegant and as I saw the set weeks ago, I designed these cards on my mind and patiently waited for my stamps and perfect pearls to arrive here from USA! :) 

This month I decided to enter twice the Avery Elle challenge so I used a light blue card base for my cards. I created a stencil with a circle die and inked my background with some distress inks and while they were not completely dry I put on some perfect pearls with a brush and then I cleaned it with a swiffer. You remove only the perfect pearls excess using a duster, so do not be scared!
I think it's a magic, it's too WOW to be real!! ahah! I love this shiny and iridescent look! It  creats a magic atmosphere in your scene and gives a super glam touch to your creations. It was the first time i used and it turned perfectly so I recommend it to all of you, it's super easy and fun! :)
Here are some other pictures of my cards...

I think i'm a little obsessed with pois these weeks.. I created this soft design with a white jel pen!

The block of polar ice icluded in the set is  perfect for all the critters and i love how it looks good with this little bears and with the bigger one too!

The pearl effect is super WOW and i hope you can see it trough these different pictures! It really captures the light continuously from different angles, it's an amazing look in reality! :) oh .. and i used my wink of stella clear brush on those little hearts!
