Delft Blue Windmill Card {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

Just popping in to share with you today a card featuring Avery Elle's adorable Windmill stamp set.  The Windmill stamp set reminds me of the Netherlands, and the Netherlands remind me of Delft Blue China and Ceramics.  Check out this sweet music box- classic Delft.

Using Delft Blue ceramics as an inspiration, I stamped and colored my Windmill with lots of moody blue Copic Markers (B21, B23, B24, B26 and B28). 

I used the Large Pierced Scallops Elle-ments die to create the frame for the Dutch Delft scene.  I die cut the frame several times from blue card stock and adhered the layers together.


I hope you enjoyed this little Dutch journey.  
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love You A Latte {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

Just popping in today with a card featuring Avery Elle's new Cool Beans stamp set.  Although the winter holidays are upon us, I am switching gears a bit and made a card suitable for Valentine's Day or really anytime you want to send some warm (caffeinated) hugs.

I stamped and die cut the cup from the Cool Beans stamp set.  I love that the cup can be made into a shaker element!

The "hugs" die is included with the Wonky Squares Elle-ments. I die cut the word several times from white card stock, stacked them together, and adhered the word die cut from black card stock on top.

It would be so fun to include a gift card inside to the recipient's favorite coffee shop to treat him or her to a latte or favorite coffee beverage!

That's all for me today! Thanks (a latte) for stopping by!

Waffle Flower V-Day 2018 Blog Hop!

Hello friends and welcome to Waffle Flower Craft's Valentine's Day Release Blog Hop!  

I am so excited to be participating today!!  You should have arrived from Yainea's blog.  Stop by the Waffle Flower blog for the full list. 

I have three cards to share with you today.  First up is a card featuring the Little Baker's stamp set and die.  I stamped, colored and die cut a bunch of the yummy-looking chocolate chip cookies and arranged them on a platter that I created using the Lacy Squares die

For even more texture and detail in the background, I paired the Lacy Layers 2 die with the Patched Layers die on a panel of white card stock before adhering everything to a kraft note card.

Next is a card using the Stitched Love stamp set and coordinating die.  I loved building these sweet pear images.  For a little more interest, I added a bit of orange ink to the bottom and side of the pears.

I arranged the happy couple inside card stock cut with the Embroidery Hoop die.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink and added a twine bow at the top of the hoop for a finishing touch.

The last card is a punny Valentine shaker card using the Make a Fish stamp set and Make a Fish die. I cut the shaker window using the Flower Circles Inverted Die

I have had so much fun building and embellishing schools of these beautiful fishes.  I added to the sentiment with the Bowtiful stamp set.  I added the hearts to the pink card stock using the small heart stamp from the new Forever stamp set.
