Avery Elle Favorites of 2018 Part 2

Hi Everyone! It's my last post of 2018, can you believe it?! I can't wait to see what's in store for Avery Elle in 2019 but first let's look back at some of my favorites from 2018.

Last week I shared part one of my 2018 favorites HERE. As promised, I'm back to share more favorites this week!


This card features many animals from Peek a Boo Pals. I stamped so many I had to make my card extra tall! I picked two water loving animals for the bottom, two forest loving animals for the middle and two tree loving animals for the top! This was a fun way to mix Peek a Boo Pals and Polar Peek a Boo Pals.


I framed the animals with Photo Mat Dies and added sentiment banners from Party Pals. I blended Distress Ink in each frame and then did a light water color wash on the entire background. The light water color background helps the frames pop.


I adore these animals and love how this card turned out! See you in 2019!

Avery Elle Favorites of 2018 Part 1

Hi Friends! Today I'm sharing some of my favorite products from 2018! 


Oh how I love the Magnolia stamp set from last spring. I knew I wanted to start with this set. Let me show you how I water colored it!


First, I heat embossed the magnolia flower on water color paper.  Next I did a super light color wash with Mimosa liquid water color.  


I like to let the base color dry and then I add my shading. Paint the lines with a damp (not super wet) brush, then blend them in. 


Once the lines are blend let it dry again and repeat the process. I found that by letting the project dry between layers of paint that I can control the color better.


After I made my flower with Mimosa water color paint I decided to make another with Cherry Next I added a few more of my favorite products. The sentiment is from Grateful and the gorgeous background is my all time favorite Chevron Mat.

Thanks for stopping by! What are some of your favorite Avery Elle products from 2018? I'll be back to share more next week!

Avery Elle Stuck on You

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing Stuck on You along with And Then sentiment stamps.

I made some small love notes that are so sweet! Let's take a look!


First, I cut white card stock in 3 x 4 inch pieces and rounded the corners. Next, I heat embossed sentiments from And Then on to each card and blended Distress Ink on the entire card. 

Next, I stamped the large cactus several times from Stuck on You and colored them with Copics. I added one cactus to each card and they were complete!


These will be so fun to tuck in to lunches or give with small gifts for Valentines day! So fun!
