Avery Elle Cool Beans

Hi Friends! Today I'm sharing how much fun I've been having with the stamp set Cool Beans .  This set has the best coffee cup image. I've been filling in the cup with all sorts of fun images. Today I combined  Cool Beans  with Lava You . I started the card by stamping the coffee cup, then masking the sides and bottom. Since the cup is such a simple image, I just used 4 pieces of post it tape. Next, I stamped the volcano image from  Lava You . I was careful to leave out the mountain and only included the exploding hearts.  Cute right? Next, I water colored the background, added some copic coloring to my cup and die cut the sentiment from Diagonal Stripes . I finished the card with some patterned paper and a few sequins. These cups are so fun to make I had to create another one! This time I created the background using Distress Inks and heat embossed the sentiment. As you can imagine you can let your imagination run wild with whatever im

Avery Elle Modern Calligraphy

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing some of the sweet new stamps and dies just released!  Alphabet stamps are on the top of my favorites list and Modern Calligraphy is a show stopper. It is my DIY dream come true!  For my card today, I personalized it by starting the card with my daughter's name. Stamping the letters was so easy. I just used a ruler to make a soft pencil line, stamped, then erased my line.  Next, I die cut the frame from Large Pierced Scallop Dies . The pink patterned paper from The Sorbet Collection  is also one of my favorites. I stamped, die cut and colored the otter and hearts from Otterly Fantastic . Isn't that otter so sweet? I finished the card by ink blending the waves on the card base, assembling all of my stamped and die cut pieces and then finally stamping the sentiment.  I hope you enjoyed my card today! I can't wait to see what YOU create. Supplies: Modern Calligraphy Large Pierced Scallop Dies Otterly Fantas

Avery Ellle Winter Wonderland Wonders

Hi Everyone! Ashley here sharing a few tips using the new Winter Wonderland Wonders stamp set and dies . I love creating layered scenes and I'm going to share how easy it is with you today! To create my card I started by cutting a piece of Post it Tape in the shape of a hill. You can free form cut this or use a die like Picket Fence . I like to add a piece of copy paper to the side of the tape I want to mask so I have great coverage on my card. Next, lay the mask on your card surface and add ink. Tip: concentrate the ink close to the mask and then fade it out.  Move your mask up our card and turn it slightly, layering a background of hills. I created 3 hills but you can created as many as you'd like! Next, stamp a tree at the top of your hill. This adds fun depth and interest. Next, stamp and die cut the animals you want in your scene. I chose the bear, bunny and deer. Aren't they cute? Place the animals on each hill, varying their position on the card.

Avery Elle Holiday Bouquet

Hi Everyone! Ashley here sharing the amazing poinsettia stamp set Holiday Bouquet . One of my favorite holiday traditions is looking at poinsettias at my local nursery. I couldn't wait to bring my favorite poinsettia color to this stamp! I started the card by coloring and die cutting the main image from Holiday Bouquet. I love the new Shaker Dies  and decided to use the circle die to add a tag shape behind the focal image. I kept the background simple with some Distress Stain and sequins. The card was finished with twine  and a stamped sentiment.  Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what YOU create!

Avery Elle Brring on the Joy

Hi Everyone! Ashley here today sharing Brring on the Joy ! I started my card by stamping and die cutting all of the images from the stamp set. I do this often when I first get a stamp set to play with the stamps and move them around to see how I can use them. Tip: All the pieces I didn't use are tucked away for another project. ;) I decided to use this penguin to carry the wreath and lights. He is ready to deck the halls! I placed him on the ice and completed my card with one of the great sentiments from the set.  Another tip! I like to use my die cuts to create windows on my cards. On this card I used Wonky Stitches Dies . Wanna see another penguin card I created? Check it out HERE ! Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Avery Elle blog hop! I'm excited to share one of the new sets being released! You won't want to miss out on all of the other inspiration so after you check out this card, hop on over to see what  Elena Roussakis  made! Today I'm featuring Sledding Critters! These are the critters you've come to love over the last several releases and now they are all jam packed in an adorable sled.  I love this stamp because it really makes the whole card for you. I stamped, colored and die cut the image. Next, I lightly inked the sledding hill with Distress Inks.  I cut a piece of black card stock and embossed a sentiment from the set. Adding two pieces of black card stock on either side, with a little flag cut on the ends makes a quick and easy DIY banner.  I finished the card with sequins and mounted it on some patterned paper. Here are all the hop details! Avery Elle / Jamie Karolyn Loncon  Caryn Davies Heather Campbell Yai

Avery Elle

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing Avery Elle's Mom & Dad stamp and die  set. The flowers in this set are amazing! I started by stamping and coloring the flowers. This set the color theme for my whole card. Next, I stamped "Mom" and die cut it out. I LOVE when die cuts to all the work on such detailed stamps. I grounded the two stamps withe the black die cut banner.  I mounted everything on a white card stock panel die cut with Wonky Stitches . The card was finished the with Happy Birthday sentiment and patterned paper from The Brights Collection . Next up I used Beside the Sea  for this sweet simple card. I stamped and die cut the houses, added the kite and colored them all in. The houses were adhered to a white piece of card stock that I ink blended with Distress Inks.  The card was finished with a sentiment and some patterned paper from my stash. Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle No Way & Welcome Home

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing Avery Elle's No Way and Welcome Home .  On my first card I started the card by cutting two pieces of patterned paper. This created a place for me to stamp the adorable avocado stamp. I added a few action lines with a Copic multiliner and then stamped a birthday hat from Extraordinary . I stamped the large sentiment next and then heat embossed "it's your birthday" on black. I finished the card with sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and twine from Avery Elle. Next, I created a card with this timeless house stamp. Won't this be fun to use year round? I stamped the individual pieces of the house, die cut the door, tree and roof and pieced it all together.  Have a great week!
