Two A-llama Birthday Fun! {Avery Elle}

Hi everyone,

Katie here with a card to share with you featuring the super fun Peek-A-Boo Car Clear Stamps.  Our Peek-A-Boo friends are all grown up and driving, but they're aren't the only furry pals who are itching to get behind the wheel...

The flashing alarm, or should I say a-llama, light that you can add to the top of the car inspired me to pull out a set released earlier this year, and I put a couple of the Llamas from the Llamazing clear stamp set behind the wheel for a little birthday fun! I stamped, colored and die cut the car, alarm, cactus, gift and llama images. I placed the llamas in the car window and trimmed off any excess of the stamped images. 

I positioned the car and the other images on a panel blended with Distress Oxide inks and anchored it with some die cuts from the Cityscape Elle-ments die (which is on SALE now) and the Dotted Frames Elle-ments set. I stamped the sentiment from the Llamazing stamp set onto black card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. The Reverse Pinked Rectangles Elle-ments die (also on SALE) frames the images and die cuts and some clear sequins add a sparkly finishing touch.

Peek-A-Boo Summer Pals

Hi friends!

It's Peek-A-Boo Summer Pals week on the Avery Elle Blog, and I am so excited to share a card I made using this cute stamp set.

I used the Sea Scene Elle-Ments die to create a little background for a Peek-A-Boo Summer Pal pool party.  The Summer Scene die is perfect for tucking the Pals into the waves.

I stamped, colored, and die cut the images  before adhering them onto the Sea Scene die cut.  I stamped the sentiment and speech bubble with black ink and added a yellow sun to the corner of the water scene. I die cut a yellow circle with the edge of the Sea Scene die to nest the two shapes together.


I hope this sunshiny card brightens your day!

Modern Floral Frame {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

Katie here with a card to share with you featuring Avery Elle's gorgeous Modern Floral Frame stamp set. This beautiful set covers so many occasions from birthdays to babies, weddings to retirement.  It's also the perfect combination of soft florals paired with the graphic straight lines of the geometric frame.

I thought I would introduce a little softness to the frame by stamping and heat embossing the image onto vellum.  To hide the adhesive, I stamped the floral cluster onto watercolor paper. I watercolored the the florals using Avery Elle's Liquid watercolors and adhered the watercolor flowers onto the vellum. 

Along with a sentiment strip that I die cut using the Classic Flags Elle-ment dies, this gave me two places to hide the adhesive and secure the vellum frame to the card.

I attached the frame to an A2 note card framed with the Dotted Frame Elle-ments die, and I glued a few clear droplets to the card as a finishing touch.
