Pretty Pink Posh October Blog Hop!

  Hi Everyone! I'm so excited to share that I am a guest designer for Pretty Pink Posh this month! Today is day one of a THREE day blog hop celebrating their new release! I created my card using their new products;  Villages Stamps , Village Dies , Village Additions Stamps  and  Village Additions Dies . I also used the greetings set Holiday Scripts Stamps  and Holiday Scripts Dies . I stamped, die cut and colored several of the images from the village sets. These are SO enjoyable to put to together and bring me back to my childhood when I painted ceramic Christmas villages. I layered the building on top of white glitter cardstock which gives the card a magical feel. The details are amazing. I kept the buildings soft which helped the greeting to pop. TIP: I cut the "s" off of the large Holiday sentiment so I could group it with Greetings.  I can't wait to share the other cards I have created for this month! These stamps are quickly becoming some of my favorites! There

Avery Elle Layered Pines and Star

Hi Everyone! I'm excited to share a Layered Pine and Layered Stars today!  I started by stamping and embossing the pine branches on coordinating colored card stock. I especially love the white embossed pine branches! Then I stamped the pink start that hangs from the blue branches. Next, I die cut Merry from two shades of card stock and layered them. Finally, I adhered all of the elements to a few layers of card stock and stamped the remaining sentiment from Layered Stars.    Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle Winter Release Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Avery Elle Winter Release Blog Hop! Are you ready to create for Christmas? I know I am!  I stamped, die cut and colored Mr. and Mrs. Claus on their bike. How cute it that?! Then I added the tree and snowman balloon. Could this stamp set be more fun? There are SO many stamps to add, I couldn't fit them all!  Next, I die cut Merry and added some Distress Oxide to the bottom.  The card base was stamped with a circle snow image from the set and card was finished with a sentiment on top and bottom.

Avery Elle Look How Big

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing  Look How Big . This set is just the cutest, let's check it out... I often start my cards by stamping, coloring and die cutting the images. This gives me the feel for the stamp set and helps me chose the coordinating background colors. After I finished the stamped images, I cut out a circle background and water colored Distress Oxides. Then I created 3 more panels to layer behind the circle. I added the layers and images together, then stamped the sentiment on a banner and added it to the card. I finished by adding the stars.   Thanks for stopping by today!  Supplies: Look How Big Stamps Look How Big Dies

Avery Elle Loads of Hello

Hi Everyone! I'm so excited to share Loads of Hello stamps and dies! I have two cards to share today using the same offset shadow technique. First, let's look at the card using only one word die. I wanted to keep it simple to show just how beautiful these dies shine on their own.  I started by die cutting the word "hi" in to white card stock. Next, I placed blue card stock behind the white panel. Then, I die cut a 4 inch circle and the word "hi". This card stock was colored with Distress Oxide ink. Finally, I placed the circle on top of the white panel and placed it slightly down and to the left. This creates a fun white shadow effect.  Next, lets look at a card using the Loads of Hello dies AND stamps. This card is the same basic concept expect the sentiment "hello" is stamped. The trick is to stamp "hello" on a small piece of card stock to line up behind the die cut circle. It looks like "hello" is stamped on the card base but
