Waiting for.. Easter with these cute goodie bags feat. Lawn Fawn!

Update: These goodie bags received the "Top Mow-It-All" title! I'm so happy! thanks!! :)

Happy monday! 
Hope your week started beautifully!! :)
Today i'm super happy to show you my first "Easter project" of the year!! 

Easter goodie bags for everyone!! OMG! I'm in love!! :)
I'm so so happy about this project! This sheep is the cutest and the scene i created makes me giggle sooo much!! 
I was just thinking about all the egg hunts that soo many people and children do every year and that inspired me! Soo here's an eggstra special egg hunt hosted by some fluffy and pretty critters!! ahah!! :)
I love the new critters by Lawn Fawn and you Know how much i love stretching my supplies, so here's a Christmas/ winter set that turned out perfect for spring! :)
Here are some other pictures..

Yeah.. this is the girly one! I drew some eyelashes to make her super pretty!! :)

And here's the male one.. Love that every critters is absolutely perfect for boys and girls!! :)
The little bird and the eggs are by Lawn Fawn too, it's a stamp set called "Happy Easter", the little sheep is from the "Baaah Humbug" set and the tree is from "Critters Down Under". 
I also use the Goodie Bag die, but i cut the front panel with that pretty border die by Simon Says Stamp to create a hill for my critters to stand. Then I added a longer front panel to re-create the bag shape! :)
I sponged some distress inks to create a simple background and i sprayed some water that makes everything more soft and pretty! I used some Shabby Shutters ink for the hill and  some Tumbled Glass for the sky.
Then i stamped all my images, i colored them with my copics and i die cut them! 

Finally i added these cute bows and ..everyone is ready to celebrate!! ihih!! :) 

Hope you like my goodie bags and thank you so so sooo much for stopping by today! :)
Have an amazing weeek! :)

It's all about friendship! A cute card feat. Avery Elle!

Happy sunday! 
It's a beautiful day, super sunny, garden starts to life and everything is bright and .. yeah that's all : is a wounderful day :)
Soo i'm here to share you a pretty and happy card that's all about friendship! 

How cute are all those critters by Avery Elle!?! I love them all!
I decided to keep it simple though is a 3 folded card. Yeah! My first 3 folds card ever!! :)
Maybe it's more visible its structure here..

First i folded 3 times a strip of white cardstock and then i created the scene, cutting some hills to give some extra interest and dimension for all my criters to stand. Then i stamped and colored with my copics all my images and i die cut them with their coordinating dies.
I sponged some "Salty Ocean" (yes, it's still my favourite!! ) distress ink on the third fold to make the sky and some "Shabby Shutter" on the first and the second fold to make the grassy hills. Then i sprayed some water to create the watercolor effect. Love all those bubbles!! :)
Here's another picture.. here you can clearly see how i set the scene gluing all the critters on the different folds!

I'm so happy about it! :)

OMG!! Yesterday my mom told me a new Harry Potter book is on the way and i was super excited!! So i decide to create a "magical Valentine's Day" card! :)

Valentine's sweaters! :)

Hi there and welcome back to my blog! 
Today i wanna show you 2 cute love themed tags i made!
Here's what i created...

YAY!! Happy sweaters are back!! It was sooo long!! But here they are!! :)
This project is my second take on the Pretty Pink Posh Valentine Challenge and i was inspired by Joni's card; all those sequins remind me the wires for drying the clothes that there are still on some super old houses here in Italy. 
Well i love decorating and customizing this sweater by Simon Says Stamp!! I stamped it twice and then i create the scene with these lovely  critters by Pretty Pink Posh. I colored all with my copics and i created a background sponging some Tumbled Glass distress ink on a piece of white cardstock that i had pre-die-cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies by Lawn Fawn.
Of course i did a female and a male version adding little bows and glasses! ( and how cute are this glasses?! I mean i'm obsessed!! ahah!! )
I also die cut 2 tags from the Stitched labels 1 dies, two little hearts and i stamped the sentiment by Avery Elle. Finally i added some Wink of Stella clear and some glossy accent! 

Hope you like my tags and thank you so so much for stopping by!

"Puppy love" a cute card featuring Pretty Pink Posh!

Happy friday friends!
Today i'm super excitet to show you a card featuring two adorable little dogs.. Valentine's Day is coming so here's some puppy love!! ihih!! :)

Awwww!!! i love soo much these cuties designed by Paulina- Pretty Pink Posh!! All the little critters included in the set ( Holiday Pals ) are so pretty and adorable! They are perfect for every occasion and every project- you know how much i love playing with winter/Christmas stamp set through all the year! :)
This card is my take on the new Pretty Pink Posh Valentine challenge!
I was inspired by the adorable card by Liz: i love how she combined stamp, die and lots of sequins all by PPP!! :) So i decided to create a card using all these 3 element together too! 
First i stamped twice the little dog and then a bow and a pair of glasses to create a cute couple, i colored them with my copics and i fussy cut them. 
On a piece of white cardstock i sponged some Evergreen bough distress ink and then i sprayed some water to create that soft bubble effect and i die cut this frame with the Stitched Film Strip die by PPP.
I prepared my background masking it with my new SSS stripes stencil and sponging some Picked Raspberry distress ink. Just remind to keep it soften at the center so the sentiment will be visible and everything will loog good! :)
Then i create two scallop stripes die cutting a white cardstock with another PPP die ( Stitched Border 1 die ) and i put everything together! 
Finally i added some Wink of Stella clear on the red bow, glossy accent on the glasses and lots of sequins!


Hope you like my card and thank you so much for stopping by today! 
Have a lovely day!! :)
