Avery Elle Summer Release Blog Hop!

Hi Friends! Welcome to the Avery Elle Summer Release blog hop! If you are hopin' along you should be arriving form Amy Kolling's blog! Isn't she amazing!?

Today I'm sharing the beautiful set called Blooming. I started the card by die cutting the large flower frame. Embosing in white can be tricky so I die cut FIRST, then lined up my stamp then embossed. I'm sure happy with the results!

 Next, I water colored the image with Avery Elle's amazing line of liquid watercolors. Next I cut out a piece of card stock to fit behind the frame and stamped it with the perfectly sized sentiment. 

I finished the card with more liquid watercolors and twine. I can't wait for you to visit Elena Roussakis's blog! She is next in the hop! If you need to start from the beginning you can click HERE.

This is another stamp and die set that I really like. I make a lot of thank you cards, so this set would be so handy. I love that you embossed the flowers on the frame. It's so pretty with the soft watercoloring!

Ellen Hutson & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! I'm SO excited for today's blog hop! This collaboration set is amazing and I can't wait to see how all of the talented designers used it today and how YOU will use it! To create my card I started by stamping, die cutting and coloring several of the images from Peek a Boo Pals Camp Wanna Stamp (love that name!). It's available HERE with stamps and dies or HERE with just stamps.  Next, I blended and splashed ink on a piece of cardstock to create the background. Then, I stamped the lightening bugs and added their glow, along with coloring their wings white. TIP: I used a Q-Tip to add just a small amount of Distress Oxide to make the bugs glow.  Finally, I added the sentiment and adhered everything to a card base. This set is amazing and it's PACKED full of images! There are still more images that I can't wait to stamp. Check out the set... Next up is Heather Campbell . She is SO talented, I'm sure you'll love what she created. Finally, it wou

Mama Elephant: October Anniversary Stampede!

It's Mama Elephant Birthday Stampede time!  This is so awesome, right? I'm so excited you've joined me from Stephanie's blog! Today I'm a sharing a lot of stamping goodness! Now that I'm counting, my card uses 4 new Mama Elephant stamp sets ! This card all started with the sentiment. My kids are always buzzing around the house singing and one of their favorite is Everything is Awesome (Lego Movie anyone?). :) I started with a faint pencil line to create AWESOME from the new Block Party Letters . I colored them in with Copics and then did some creative masking and stamping from Happy Everything to add the beginning of the sentiment. Next I stamped the penguin and hat (from the new Artic Penguins ), colored them and die cut them for a perfect cut. The soft, grey striped background was created using the new Boutique Borders . All stamps and dies can be purchased NOW at the Mama Elephant store HERE . Next up? The very talented JJ Bolton !
