All My Kisses {Avery Elle}

Hello friends, 

Christmas is still fresh in my mind, but I love that we are shifting into Valentine's mode. Valentine's Day is my most favorite of all the holidays for paper crafting! Bring on all the hearts, doilies, and all the delicious shades of reds and pinks. I am here for it! I am kicking off my Valentine's Day crafting with a card featuring Avery Elle's All My Kisses stamp set and the XOXO Elle-ments die. 

I die cut the XOXO Elle-ments die from a panel of white card stock three times. I adhered the die cut panel to a piece of water color card stock blended with Distress Oxide Inks and spattered with white paint. 

I stamped, colored and die cut the adorable puppy. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of black card stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered the puppy and the sentiment to the card. As a finishing touch, I added the three tiny hearts. I die cut the hearts from red card stock and added a layer of glossy accents to the die cuts for added dimension. 


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Loads of Thanks {Avery Elle}

 Hello friends, 

I have a couple cards to share with  you today featuring Avery Elle's Loads of Thanks stamp set and coordinating Elle-ments dies. I was able to get two cards out of the same amount of design effort. 

I blended several shades of Distress Oxide ink onto a panel of watercolor card stock. I die cut the "thanks" word and outline from the blended panel and from white card stock. I layered the word and outline and used Avery Elle's Liquid Glue adhesive to attached the word to the outline. 

I die cut two of the Oval Burst Elle-ments and stamped some of the sentiments onto white card stock with black ink. I trimmed out the sentiments with scissors. 

I assembled the cards varying the layout and orientation slightly. I attached the "thanks" die cut to the card with foam tape for a little extra dimension.  A few clear flat sequins add a finishing touch. 


Thanks for stopping by and having a peek Have a great day!

Avery Elle Winter 2020 Release and Blog Hop!

Hello friends, 

I am so excited to share my first projects from Avery Elle's Winter 2020 Release.  I have two cards to share with you today featuring the beautiful Sending Flowers stamp set.  

For my first card, I stamped a background using all of the floral images. I stamped the flowers in Versamark ink before heat embossing the images with Rose Gold embossing powder. I colored in the flowers with Copic markers.  I die cut the stamped panel with the Wonky Stitches die and adhered it to a silver note card. I stamped the sentiment, also embossed in Rose Gold, onto a strip of white card stock. I attached the sentiment to the note card with foam tape and a few clear sequins add a finishing touch. 

For my next card, I stamped, embossed, colored and die cut all the flower images and arranged them around the Quilted Frame Elle-ments die. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in the oval of the Quilted Frame die and added a few clear droplets as a finishing touch.
