Introducing Frosty Friends- Avery Elle Fall 2017 Blog Hop!

Hello friends,

I am so excited to be participating today in a blog hop celebrating the release of Avery Elle's Fall 2017 collection of stamps and dies.  Today, I am sharing a card featuring the Frosty Friends stamp set and coordinating Frosty Friends Elle-ments dies.

Ok, so how cute are these snow people?  I adore their vintage look, and they were a delight to color in and shade with Copic markers.  I stamped, colored and die cut the snow people and adhered them to a panel of watercolor cardstock.

I used Distress Oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio to create the soft green background.   I stamped a few of the snow flakes included in the stamp set onto the inked background and added the sentiment with black ink.

Before adhering the stamped panel to a pink notecard, I die cut the bottom edge of the watercolor panel with the Dotted Borders Elle-ments die, and I adhered some clear sequins as a finishing touch.

Hop on the Birthday Bus {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

I am on the Avery Elle blog today sharing a card or two that I made with the Birthday Bus stamp set.

I started my card by brushing some ink onto a panel of white card stock.  Next, I created a scene using the elements from the Picket Fences Elle-ments die.  I stamped a die cut the bus and gifts from the Birthday Bus stamp set and colored the images with Copic Markers.

I love how this little scene turned out, and I have a bonus interactive version of this card to share over on the Avery Elle blog if you'd like to check that out too! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
