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! 


Thanks for stopping by! 
Have a great day!

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!

Peek-a-Boo Birthday Tag Toppers {Avery Elle}

 Hello friends, 

Popping in to share a card featuring Avery Elle's Peek-A-Boo Birthday Tag Toppers dies. These cute critters are the perfect size for tags, but they can be used for cards too!

For my card, I used the lion and hippo to make a wild birthday card. I die cut the animals and hats from card stock and assembled the images. Next I die cut the Happy Birthday die from black card stock. 

To pull all these elements together, I used the banner and one of the sentiments from the Peek-A-Boo Jungle clear stamps. I blended a panel of watercolor card stock with a couple shades of Distress Oxide Ink and added a die cut frame from the Fairy Ephemera pack. You can also use the Leafy Frame Elle-ments die to create your own!

Hello Sunshine {Avery Elle}

Hello friends, 

Katie here with a card and technique to share with you featuring Avery Elle's Loads of Hello stamp set. Loads of Hello is such a great set and the main sentiments are a substantial size and easily command attention on a card. 

One of my favorite techniques for sets with big and bold sentiments is to substitute an image for a letter. 

For this technique, I selected the "hello" sentiment. I stamped and die cut 'hello" and cut off the "o" and replaced it with the sun image from the Sunshine stamp set. 

To reinforce the sunshine vibe, I added the "sunshine" text block from the Loads of Hello set. I created the background using the Oval Burst Elle-ments die and the Cloud Mat Elle-ments die. I backed the oval with a gradient blue piece of patterned paper from the Spring Collection paper pad. I also added a couple clouds I had previously cut using the Cloud Mat die. 

Once everything was adhered into place, I added a few clear sequins as a finishing touch. 


I hope this idea inspires you to look at new ways to combine your sentiments and images! Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle Spring 2021 New Release!


Hello friends, 

I am so excited to share my first projects from Avery Elle's Spring 2021 Release.  I have two cards to share with you today featuring the absolutely adorable and charming Elephantastic stamp set.  

For my first card, I blended Distress Ink onto a panel of water color card stock to create grass and sky. Next, I stamped the images onto white card stock and colored them with Copic markers. 

I die cut the images using the coordinating Elephantastic Elle-ments dies and arranged them onto the blended panel. I adhered the images to the panel and stamped the sentiment in black ink. 

For my next card, I decided to create a slimline design.  I used a stencil made with the Pierced Clouds Elle-ments die (Retired) and lots of shades of Distress Oxide ink to create a rainbow cloud background. I spattered the background with both water and white ink to create the ink lift effect. 

I stamped and colored the images using Copic markers.  I die cut the images using the coordinating Elle-ments dies and a scrap of white card stock with the Pierced Clouds die. I adhered the images to the card and stamped a sentiment from the new Circle Tags stamp set in black ink. It's hard to spot in the photos, but I used a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush marker to add a little extra sparkle to the stars!

Sending Hugs {Avery Elle}

 Hello friends, 

Katie here with a couple of cards to share with you using Avery Elle's absolutely adorable Sending Hugs stamp set. 

For my first card, I stamped the envelop and the koala onto white card stock and colored the images with Copic markers. 

I die cut the images with the coordinating Elle-ments dies and adhered them to the Quilted Frame Elle-ments die cut. I stamped the sentiment on the envelop image and attached the die cut frame to an A-2 notecard. 

For my second card, I die cut the XOXO elements three times on an A2 panel. Behind the die cut panel, I adhered strips of card stock cut in 1/4" strips. 

Inside the "O"s I adhered three of the cute critters from the Sending Hugs set. I stamped the images onto white card stock, colored them with Copic Markers and die cut them with the coordinating Elle-ments dies. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white card stock and adhered it to the card. 


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Frenchie {Avery Elle}

 Hello friends, 

Poppping in today to share a card featuring Avery Elle's darling Frenchie stamp set and coordinating Elle-ments dies.  I love that this set is so versatile. It's perfect for Valentine's Day and for celebrating birthdays too! 

I stamped the images onto white card stock and colored them in with Copic markers. I used E50, E51, E53, E55 and E57 for the pups and R00, R01, R02, R05 and YR00, YR01, YR04 for most of the accessories. The pups' bandanas were colored with B000, B00, B01, and B02.

I adhered the colored images to a card panel blended with Distress Oxide ink in one of my favorite shades, Dried Marigold, spattered with some white ink. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink onto black cardstock and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
