Avery Elle Fall Release Blog Hop!





Welcome to the Avery Elle Fall Release Blog Hop! I'm so excited to share the new die set Cloud Mat! Let's take a peek...


First, I cut the large background die that perfectly creates a fluffly cloud sky. Next, I removed all of the clouds and inked up the sky portion, then replaced the clouds. One of my favorite stamps from this release is Peek-a-Boo Balloon. I stamped, die cut and colored it. Isn't it so sweet? Next, I placed a llama from an older set, Llamazing. There are so many creatures that will fit in this balloon! Finally, I hand cut a banner for the sentiment and wrapped it around the basket.

 I started my card by stamping, die cutting and coloring the 3 cute chicks from Easter Chicks. I didn't really have a plan for them but I had fun stacking them and placing them on things. Finally, I settled on a Market Sand take over! :) The chicks seem to be made perfectly to go along with the Market Stand set.

Avery Elle All of Us

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing a few of my favorites from the brand new Avery Elle release! When I was unpacking my new stamps there were definitely a few stamp sets that grabbed my attention. All of Us was one of those sets. I love it!


I started this card with those adorable bears! I had such a fun time choosing how I wanted them to look. I absolutely adore that panda bear! Next, I used the Arrow Mat die to cut out a triangle to create the window. Then, I had a lot of fun and blended the hill and sky with Distress Oxides. I wanted a big sentiment so I die cut Happy Birthday from gold glitter card stock with the Confetti Mat die.


Finally I added a few clouds from the Photo Mat Die and adhered all of the pieces together.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! I can't wait to see what you create!

Avery Elle Spring 2019 Blog Hop!



Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing a few new dies and a sentiment stamp set from the brand new Avery Elle release!

Let's check it out...


To create this card I used the bowl die from Phonomenal (yes, it's supposed to be a soup bowl) and the Cotton Candy die to create my fun frozen treat! Eek! Next, I stamped the sentiment from So Kind on the bowl and added polka dots. Wanna know a little trick? I used the small circle dies, also from Phonomenal, to create a mask. I placed the mask on the bowl several times and dabbed ink in the circles to create polka dots. Then I cut out the Quilted Frame Die from craft card stock and adhered the frozen treat on top. I finished the card with some twine and glitter.

Next up on the blog hop is Elena Roussakis!

Avery Elle Some Bunny

Hi Everyone! It's been a cold week but I can feel spring coming...it's just around the corner! Spring reminds me of cool days, filled with sunshine, green grass, new flowers and new life.

Some Bunny captures all that spring is and I can't wait to share it with you! 


To create my card, I started by stamping the large balloon stamp. Next, I colored it and used the coordinating die to cut it out.

Then I created the background. First, I blended Distress Ink around the top and sides. Then I stamped the bunny. I brushed in grass with Copics along the bottom and around the bunny. I love how this turned out! I'll be drawing more grass in the future. It was fun!

Finally, I lightly colored the bunny and stamped the sentiment. 


Such a fun, easy card. Thanks for stopping by today!

Avery Elle Tons of Hearts

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing the Tons of Hearts Frame. I've added a few of my other favorite stamps to today's card too! Let's take a look...

I started my card by water coloring a panel and placing it behind the Tons of Hearts Frame. Next, I die cut a circle and stamped a sentiment from And Then. I ended up masking the sentiment to take out the "O" and widen the gap between the "Y" and "U". 

In the gap, I adhered a die cut cat from Party Pals. Isn't he cute?!

I finished the card with a heart speech bubble. I made this with a word bubble from the Photo Mat dies and a heart die from Otterly Fantastic.

Thanks for stopping by today!
