Peek-A-Boo Jungle {Avery Elle}

Hello lovelies,

Katie here with a little Peek-A-Boo Pals: Jungle inspiration to share with you today from Avery Elle's latest release. I love all the Peek-A-Boo Pals and I am just WILD about this latest addition.

For my card, I blended some Distress Ink around the edges of a panel of water color card stock and spattered it with an orange spray stain. I stamped, colored and die cut all the pals along with the banner and sentiment.

To set the scene, I die cut the Leafy Frames Elle-ments die from green card stock and tucked all the pals and the banner among the leafy fronds. I arranged the paws and hooves so that the Pals really look like they're playing Peek-A-Boo in the jungle setting.


Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle Spring 2020 Blog Hop

Hello friends! 

I am very excited to be participating in a blog hop today in honor of Avery Elle's Spring 2020 Release! 

I have two card to share featuring the new Loads of Happy Clear Stamps. If you loved the Hooray Clear Stamps in the last release, Loads of Happy uses the same style font plus a coordinating die! It really makes a bold impact! I chose to make birthday cards with Loads of Happy, but the set covers all the happy occasions. It's definitely a go-to set that you'll reach for often. 

For my first card, I paired Loads of Happy with the new Peek-a-Boo Jungle Clear Stamps and Leafy Frames Elle-ments die

I ink blended a panel of watercolor card stock with a few shades of Distress Oxide ink. Next I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Loads of Happy with white embossing powder.

I die cut the Leafy Frames Elle-ments die from green card stock, cut it in half and adhered it to the bottom of my card. I stamped and colored the leopard and giraffe from Peek-a-Boo Jungle and tucked them behind the leafy frame.  I borrowed the party hats from the Rawr Clear Stamps. As a finishing touch, I added a few clear sequins and small white pom-poms. 

 My second card pairs the Loads of Happy Elle-ments die with the Hot Dog Clear Stamps

I used Avery Elle's new Spring Collection Paper Pack and a frame from the Fairy Ephemera Pack.  I stamped and colored one of the pups and loads of confetti from Hot Dog. 

I die cut "happy" from the orange star paper included in the Spring Paper Pack and layered it on top of white card stock. I stamped "birthday" onto white card stock and trimmed out the word with scissors.  A few clear sequins add a little extra sparkle to the finished card. 

All of the new products I used on my cards are available for purchase in the New Release section of the Avery Elle shop.
