Party Fox {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

I'm on the Avery Elle blog this week with a card to share with you today featuring a pair of foxes and they're ready to party! 

I stamped the foxes and some of the party accessories with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed them with Clear Embossing powder. I colored the images with Copic markers and die cut the images using the coordinating Party Foxes Elle-ments dies.

I pulled out some older stamp sets and dies to create a background and sentiment for the Party Foxes. I die cut Aqua cardstock using the Chevron Mat Elle-ments die and adhered it to a white notecard.
I die cut white card stock with the Starburst Elle-ments die and added some Distress Oxide Ink in Mustard Seed. I affixed the foxes to the Starburst die cut and adhered it to the Chevron mat.  For the sentiment, I pulled out the Banner Bits stamp set and coordinating Elle-ments die. I stamped the banner outline and sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed the banner with Clear Embossing powder.

I hope this card and the Party Foxes make your day a little more festive and fun!  
Thanks for stopping by!

Three Hearts Die Inspiration {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

Stopping in today to share a card idea featuring Avery Elle's new Three Hearts Die.  I just adore the latest addition to the Three Shape series of dies. It's perfect for Valentines Day!  Supply list and links are below.

I positioned the die onto an A2 panel of white card stock and die cut the trio of hearts a few times.  I adhered the die cut panel on top of a panel of watercolor card stock colored with Distress Oxide inks and sprayed with water.

Inside the hearts I tucked the pair of cacti from the Stuck on You stamp set.  I added some of the tiny sentiments from this set inside the heart shapes.  They fit perfectly and remind me of conversation hearts!  I trimmed the panel and adhered it to a red A2 note card.


Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle Winter 2018 Release Blog Hop!

Hello friends!

Welcome to Avery Elle's Winter 2018 Release Blog Hop!  Today I will be sharing with you a pair of cards that I made using the Embellished Heart Elle-Ments die. 

These cards were so simple to make.  First I die cut the Embellish Heart Elle-Ments die slightly off the edge of an A2-size card panel. Next, I cut strips of card stock to go behind the heart shapes.  The skinny stripe strips are 1/4" wide and the wider stripe strips are 1/2" wide. 

I adhered the card stock strips to an A2 white notecard and trimmed off any excess.  I attached the heart die cut panel using foam tape.  For the sentiment, I die cut the words from black card stock and covered the letters with Glossy Accents before adhering them to the card.  As a finishing touch, I added some clear sequins.  

I love the scallop detail on the Embellished Heart die, and this card would be so simple to replicate for the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday.  I bent up the scallop border on one of my cards so you can see the difference even that small step makes in the look of the die.  All items are available for purchase in the Avery Elle shop right now!
