Island Time {Avery Elle}

Hello friends, 

Could you use a little Island Time? After the past year, I know I could! I was able to plan a little island escape via a card using the adorable Island Time stamp set. Island Time has all the elements you need to create a darling, tropical scene.


I stamped all my images, colored them with Copic Markers and die cut the stamped images using the coordinating Island Time Elle-ments dies. 


Next, I die cut a panel of white card stock with the large stitched rectangle from the Easy Layers Elle-ments dies. I blended a circle of yellow ink using Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed. I adhered the stamped images and stamped the sentiment onto the panel with Versafine ink. As a finishing touch, I adhered a few flat clear sequins. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Slimline Sweet Day {Avery Elle}

Hello friends, 

Popping in today with a card featuring the absolutely adorable Sweet Day stamp set and the new Slimline Borders Elle-ments dies from Avery Elle. 


I stamped the images from the Sweet Day stamp set and colored them with Copic Markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and set them aside while I built the slimline background. 


First, I cut a panel of watercolor card stock to 3.5" x 8.5 inches. I blended about one-third of the way down the panel with Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled Glass. I spattered the panel with water and white ink. Next, I cut the wavy border and grassy border from a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and blended them with Black Soot to create pavement and Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron to create grass. I adhered the borders to the panel of watercolor card stock. 

I adhered the stamp images to the panel, stamped the sentiment and adhered the completed panel to a slimline card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope your day is sweet!

Snappy Birthday Wishes {Avery Elle}

 Hello friends, 

I have  a card on the Avery Elle blog this week featuring the new Oh Snap stamp set, Hooray Elle-ments die and Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments die. 

I just adore this snappy crocodile. He's so festive and we have lots of celebrations planned for this summer. To make the card, I die cut a panel of Neenah Solar White card stock with the large stitched die from the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments set. Next, I blended the die cut panel with two shades of Distress Oxide inks- Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold. I spattered the panel with white ink and set it aside to dry. 


I stamped the crocodile with black ink, colored him with Copic Markers, and die cut the image using the coordinating Elle-ments die. I blended a small rectangle of Distress Heavystock with more Distress Oxide Inks- Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Salvaged Patina. I die cut the Hooray Elle-ments from the blended panel. 


I adhered the Hooray die cut at the bottom of the large blended panel and set the crocodile on top of the die cut. I pulled out the Speech Bubble stamp set and created a speech bubble to hold the "It's Your Birthday" sentiment. I added a few flat star sequins and attached the completed panel to an A2 card base.

Layered Cupcake {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

I have a card to share today featuring Avery Elle's new Layered Cupcake clear stamps. I was immediately intrigued when I spied the previews for this set, but I was a little apprehensive too because layered stamps can be tricky. 

Once I figured out the layering line up (hint- align towards the bottom, not the top,) it was pure magic. seeing all the layers come together was like watching heat embossing for the very first time. Seriously! I fell in love fast!  


I got a little carried away making layered cupcakes and two of them found their way onto this card. I die cut the images using the coordinating Elle-ments dies and adhered them to a panel of card stock cut with the Wonky Stitches Elle-ments die. I added a couple clear flat sequins and a sentiment from the Sweet Day clear stamps. 


Supplies:

Avery Elle Summer 2021 Release and Blog Hop!

 


Hello friends, 

I am excited to be celebrating Avery Elle's Summer 2021 release today. There's a fun blog hop with loads of inspiration featuring all the goodies from the new line up. 

I have a couple cards to share using the adorable piggy from the Life stamp set. 


The Life clear stamps coordinates well with the Sweet Day stamp set, so I built a little scene featuring the two. It is my fervent wish that PIggy's ice cream is swiftly replaced by the kind ice cream truck bear. 


For my second card, I used only the Life clear stamps along with the Scallop Mat die. The wavy banner is from the new Easy Layers Elle-ments die set. 


I blended a bit of Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron on the dotted oval. I stamped  and die cut the images and colored them using Copic Markers. I curved the sentiment slightly and stamped it with black ink on the wavy banner. 



For a summary of all of our new products that are available for purchase right now check out the Brand New section in the Avery Elle shop.  Be sure to visit all the designers participating in today's hop for more inspiration!

Rainbow of Get Well Wishes

Hello friends, 

I am on the Avery Elle blog this week with a card featuring the Everyday Circle Tag stamp set. This set makes fantastic tags and coordinates perfectly with the Holiday Circle Tag Dies. With its stylish font and design, this has quickly become my go-to sentiment set! 


I pulled out the Rainbow Elle-ments Die and made a shaped card with a touch of glitter card stock and lots of bright and beautiful colors. I added the smiling sun from the Sunshine stamp set peeking over the rainbow.  


In the clouds, I stamped the "Get Well Soon" sentiment. A bright and cheery rainbow will hopefully brighten the recipient's day! 


On the back of. the card, I added` the "Handmade with Love" sentiment and the hand drawn heart. The Everyday Circle Tags ``set truly has it all!

Looking for Rainbows?

Hello friends, 

Are you looking for rainbows? I am! Always! I am on the Avery Elle blog this week with a couple rainbow cards to share featuring the Happy Birthday Die and Look for Rainbows clear stamps. 

First, I made a shaker card with the Happy Birthday die. I blended Distress Ink on a panel of Distress Heavystock and die cut the Happy Birthday greeting. 


Next I made a shaker element with the Oval Burst Elle-ment die using lots of sparkly clear sequins! I attached the shaker to a notecard covered with a piece of patterned paper. I adhered the rainbow die  to the shaker and added a few clear flat sequins as a finishing touch. 


My next rainbow card uses the aptly named Look for Rainbows set. First I created the rainbow background with  a cloud edge stencil and Distress Inks. Next, I stamped the Bunny, puddle, and water drops and colored them with Copic Markers. 


I die cut the stamped images with the coordinating Elle-ments dies and arranged them on the background. I adhered the panel to a notecard and stamped the sentiment with black ink.

I hope these rainbow cards brightened your day! Thanks for stopping by!
