Sweet Swines {Avery Elle}

Hello Avery Elle friends!

Stopping by today to share a festive card featuring Avery Elle's Sweet Swines clear stamps.

This little piggy is ready for a party, so I set a celebratory scene using the Ray Elle-ments die. I blended some yellow ink and added some ink spatters before cutting the white card stock with the Ray die. I also created a little shaker window by sandwiching some flat sequins and glitter between two panels of clear acetate. I adhered the shaker element behind the circle opening.

I stamped the pig and party accessories, colored them with Copic Markers and colored pencils and die cut the images using the coordinating Sweet Swines Elle-ments die. For color inspiration I looked no further than Avery Elle's red and aqua logo. Along with the yellow background, a color scheme featuring primary colors is always a winner.

I adhered the stamped images to the Ray background to set the party scene and tucked a sentiment from the Speech Bubble clear stamps behind the party pig's ear. As a finishing touch, I added some of the small stars included in the Sweet Swines set.


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you week is off to a great start!

Happy Birthday {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

Hot Dog! It's Hot Dog inspiration week on the Avery Elle blog. I have a card to share with you today featuring the pups from this adorable stamp set along with some of the patterns from The Spring Collection paper pad.

I wanted to feature as many of the dogs from the Hot Dog set as I could on my card, so I set a scene using the Party Tags Elle-ments dies. I used the second largest die to cut tags from some of the fun patterned paper in The Spring Collection paper pad. After die-cutting the tags, I trimmed off the top of each tag creating a straight edge at the end to align with the edges of the card. 

I stamped the dog, bone and balloon images onto white card stock and colored the images with Copic markers before die cutting the images with the coordinating Hot Dog Elle-ments dies.

I place the main images onto each of the tags that I arranged on a white A-2 card base. I added polka dots with a white gel pen to one of the party hats and stamped the sentiment onto the purple tag with black ink.  I chose to keep my card flat for easy mailing, but you could totally add some sequins or enamel dots to really amp up the party fun!


Thanks so much for stopping by! 
I hope you have a wonderful day!
