Rocky Shores Die 3 Ways

Hi  Everyone! In every Avery Elle release there is normally one stamp set or die set that catches me by surprise. At first, it may not stand out as a favorite but over time, creating cards it becomes my stand by, go to product. In the latest release that die set is Rocky Shores

Today, I used the die to create a fun grassy field for these two friends. Rocky Shores made a quick and simple hill for these friends to stand on.

I die cut and colored the animals from Wood You? and Hedgehugs. The sentiment is from Simply Said Hugs.



I also used Rocky Shores ito create two completely different looks HERE and HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle: Swans

Hi Everyone! Swans is an adorable small set from Avery Elle. I have to admit that I LOVE these small sets. They are so much fun!

To create my card I stamped and die cut the largest swan with the cute couple and colored it with Copics. I did the same thing with the small heart and added a little Glossy Accents. The background was created with Distress Stain and then I added the stamped sentiment and lots of sequins. 


The background paper is some adorable Crate Paper that I had in my stash.

Avery Elle: Wood You?

Hi Everyone! The cute stamps just keep coming, don't they? 

This one is Wood You? by Avery Elle. 

This card started with the beaver. His expression is the best. Next, I decided to use the chopped down tree in the set for a little (okay BIG) pencil. I LOVE birch trees so I knew I wanted to color the tree and stump a little different with the unique bark found on birch trees. 


I finished the card by cutting out a mat using Double Pierced Rectangle Dies and inking the forest floor with Distress Ink. The twine is one of my favorites, Aquamarine.

Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle: Hedgehugs

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm featuring the adorable Hedgehugs by Avery Elle. I also used this post on the release blog hop (a few posts back) if you'd like double the inspiration. ;)

I created this scene by stamping the hedgehog and balloon bunch from Hedgehugs. Next I stamped and die cut the small heart and another string from the balloon bunch. With a little creative cutting and gluing, I had a small heart balloon. 

I love creating with this set and I think you will to. I can't wait to see what you create. Thanks for stopping by!
