Layered Cupcake {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

I have a card to share today featuring Avery Elle's new Layered Cupcake clear stamps. I was immediately intrigued when I spied the previews for this set, but I was a little apprehensive too because layered stamps can be tricky. 

Once I figured out the layering line up (hint- align towards the bottom, not the top,) it was pure magic. seeing all the layers come together was like watching heat embossing for the very first time. Seriously! I fell in love fast!  

I got a little carried away making layered cupcakes and two of them found their way onto this card. I die cut the images using the coordinating Elle-ments dies and adhered them to a panel of card stock cut with the Wonky Stitches Elle-ments die. I added a couple clear flat sequins and a sentiment from the Sweet Day clear stamps.

Avery Elle Summer 2021 Release and Blog Hop!


Hello friends, 

I am excited to be celebrating Avery Elle's Summer 2021 release today. There's a fun blog hop with loads of inspiration featuring all the goodies from the new line up. 

I have a couple cards to share using the adorable piggy from the Life stamp set. 

The Life clear stamps coordinates well with the Sweet Day stamp set, so I built a little scene featuring the two. It is my fervent wish that PIggy's ice cream is swiftly replaced by the kind ice cream truck bear. 

For my second card, I used only the Life clear stamps along with the Scallop Mat die. The wavy banner is from the new Easy Layers Elle-ments die set. 

I blended a bit of Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron on the dotted oval. I stamped  and die cut the images and colored them using Copic Markers. I curved the sentiment slightly and stamped it with black ink on the wavy banner.
