A Wheelie Great Birthday {Avery Elle}


Katie here with a little Wheelie Great inspiration to share with you today. The images in Avery Elle's Wheelie Great are so sweet. I love all the accessories and different elements that can be added to the bicycling bunny.

I stamped the bunny, mouse, flowers and cake image onto white card stock and colored the images with Copic markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating Wheelie Great Elle-ments dies. I also die cut a panel of white card stock with the Quilted Frame Elle-ments die. I blended the center oval with Distress Ink before adhering the images to the oval and attaching all the die cuts to an A-2 notecard.

I stamped the sentiment onto one of the narrow tags from the Party Tag Elle-ments die set. I adhered the tag to the card and added a light yellow button over the hole in the tag as a finishing touch.

I Chews You Valentine {Avery Elle}

Hi friends,

I am popping in today to share a card and tip featuring Avery Elle's Shark Hugs Clear Stamps and coordinating Elle-ments dies.

The Shark Hugs shark is so dapper, and I love that you can tuck various accessories into his fins. While you can certainly use a masking technique to place items into his fins, the coordinating Shark Hugs Elle-ments dies contain a special fin flap die that makes it so simple to tuck items into his fins.

I follow some easy steps to align the fin flaps die with the stamped image.

Once the fin flaps are cut, proceed as usual with coloring and die-cutting the shark image. I colored my shark with Copic markers and chose to tuck the bitten heart into his fins. For the background, I die-cut a panel of white card stock with the Three Hearts Elle-ments die. I blended a panel of watercolor card stock with a few shades of Distress Oxide Ink and spattered it with water to lift off some of the ink. 

 I placed the Three Heart panel on top of the blended panel. I die cut the Heart Frame Elle-ments die from gold card stock and placed the shark on top. I stamped the sentiment with black ink and attached the finished panel to an A-2 notecard. 


I hope that you will invite this handsome shark into your crafty collection and give the fin flap die a try!

Cupids! {Avery Elle}

Hi everyone!

I am on the Avery Elle blog today with card to share using the sweet Cupids Clear Stamps. These little Cupid babies are so adorable, I could not resist using all three of the Cupid on my card.

To start, I ink blended a cloud background using a DIY stencil I created using the Pierced Cloud Elle-ments dies. Next, I stamped the Cupid, cloud and bird images and colored them with Copic markers.

To add a little extra interest to the card, I die cut the heart and confetti trail onto the card front and added some glitter behind the die cut for a little subtle sparkle and shine. I adhered the images to the card and stamped the sentiment with black ink.

A Bright and Beautiful Day {Avery Elle}

Hello friends, 

Happy Friday and Happy New Year! I am on the Avery Elle blog today with a card bearing best wishes for a BRIGHT and BEAUTIFUL day featuring the new Cloud Mat Elle-ments die. 

I have so much love for this die. Clouds make the BEST backgrounds for cards. For my card, I blended Distress Ink onto a panel of water color card stock in rainbow colors. Next I die-cut the panel using the Cloud Mat die. I set aside the rainbow background for used on another card and preserved the cloud die cuts.  

I die cut a panel of white card stock using the same Cloud Mat die and then carefully in-laid the clouds. I paired this background with the Simply Said: Bright Clear Stamps and Coordinating Elle-ments dies. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments using Avery Elle's Rose Gold metallic Embossing Powder to enhance the card's rosy glow.


That's all for me today. I hope that this card makes your day a little brighter!
