Avery Elle Birthday Cake

 Hi Everyone!

Today I'm sharing Avery Elle's Time to Party stamp set.

To create this card I stamped and die cut the birthday cake from Time to Party. I added the sweet bow from Carousel

The background was created with a combination of Distress Oxide inks and Distress Inks. I added a few sequins to finish off my card. I can't wait to deliver this card!

Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle Shaker Card

It's time to party! Today's card feature's Avery Elle's More Furry Friends, Time to Party and Scalloped Pierced Rectangle dies. This combo makes such a fun shaker card!

To create the card I die cut the largest Scalloped Pierced Rectangle and remove only the center of the die. Next, I stamped and die cut the adorable cat and the party balloons and colored them with Copics. I added string to the balloons and adhered them to the front of my card. To create the shaker I added foam adhesive (two layers!) on the back around the frame and put lots of Pretty Pink Posh sequins inside. The background was created with Distress Oxide. I LOVE how smooth these new inks are. They blend so easily and are my current go to inks.

Avery Elle Fruit Stand

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing Fruit Stand from Avery Elle. I love how it pairs with the City Celebrations die too! Let's take a look...

To create this card I stamped and die cut several images from Fruit Stand. I was reminded of outdoor markets in Seattle and NYC so I placed my images in front of the die cut City Celebrations. I cut pieces of the die off to expose space for the sky. The sky was blended with Distress Ink. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the set. 

Hope you have a great day!

Avery Elle Shine Bright

Happy Thursday! Today's card features Shine Bright from Avery Elle. 

I started by stamping and die cuting several images from the stamp set. I love creating a scene. This stamp set makes it effortless.

I colored the images with Copics and then placed them together in front of a die cut circle. Behind the circle I used Distress Oxide to create a sky. 

The card was finished with a few droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

Avery Elle Carousel

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm sharing Avery Elle's Carousel stamp set along with Scalloped Pierced Rectangles and Sip Sip Hooray.

I created this scene by stamping and die cutting the horse and bear. Next, I die cut Scalloped Pierced Rectangles to create the white frame and taped the animals in. The sentiment from Sip Sip Hooray is embossed in white and then I added Distress Ink to the entire background. 

I love this sentiment and how it tie in perfectly with the carousel animals!

Have a great day!

Avery Elle Spring Release Blog Hop

Welcome! I can't wait to share the new More Furry Friends stamp set from Avery Elle!

I started my card by stamping, die cutting and coloring lots of fun animals from the set. I actually colored twice as many as I ended up putting on this card because they are just so fun!

Once I had my animals, I stamped and die cut the hats, ball and fish. Notice the rainbow pattern?? ;)

I made the scene by adding the new fence from Picket Fences die. I love how it grounds the animals and brings the scene to life. Finally, I embossed the sentiment and adhered all of my pieces to the card.

Avery Elle Love Birds

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm sharing a fun framing technique using the Avery Elle stamp set Love Birds.

I started the card by stamping the frame images and die cutting them. I love this set because it includes the inside and outside die cuts separately so there are a lot of different options on how to use the frames.

Next, I die cut the frames again with colored card stock. I lightly colored the images to coordinate with the card stock. Finally I die cut the Hugs die and adhere all the pieces to my card front. I trimmed off the sides and my card was complete.

Thanks for stopping by!
