Otterly Cute Card

Hello!  Posting a card here that was on the Avery Elle blog earlier this week.  I'm otterly excited to be here today sharing my fun otter card and I've even got a video for you today too!



Here's the video sharing how this card came together.  I also shared my favorite technique for using the die that cuts the otters hands out so he can hold the shell!

Avery Elle Balloons

Hello everyone! I'm back and have this project over on the Avery Elle blog - but wanted to share it here too!

How's your week coming along?  I think I'm finally recuperating after the holiday weekend.  :)

For today, I'm continuing playing with the new Balloons and Banners stamp set.
I love these balloons so much.  Really, I find a great balloon stamp super versatile so I was thrilled to see this set.  I paired the balloons with a sentiment from Big Greetings stamp set

To create the inked effect for these balloons, I simply dabbed only the edges of the balloons in the ink leaving much of the inner part of the balloon stamp un-inked.   I love how this technique works with balloons by creating the perfect airiness! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me.  Have a great one!

Ellen Hutson 11th Anniversary Hop


Hello, hello!  Welcome to the Ellen Hutson 11th Anniversary hop!
You should have arrived here from Jessica Frost-Ballas' blog!

For the hop, we all got to play with our favorite Essentials by Ellen set.  Of course, for mine, I had to play with Hearth & Home.  This set was released in the very first Essentials by Ellen release and it's a set that I just keep going back to - especially the dies!


To create my card, I ink blended distress ink onto white cardstock.  Then, I simply die cut my shapes. I love how this creates a soft variation in color across the cuts!  To create my snowy background, I ink splattered with white watercolor on kraft cardstock.  Then, I just heat embossed the chimney smoke and added the sentiment to another die cut.

Your next stop is Emily Leiphart's blog!

Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me.
Have a great day!

Modern Calligraphy

Hey hey y'all!  I'm over on the Avery Elle blog today sharing a card and wanted to share it here too! This week we're continuing the fun with Modern Calligraphy.  For my card, I decided to personalize my card with the recipient's name.
The individual letters were super easy to line up and I love how it looks like I wrote it myself!  I love the versatility of this set - it really allows you to create any sentiment you could possibly want!

I stamped the flowers and a few add ons to create the floral arrangement at the top.  Then I colored everything in with my Copics.   

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day here!
Have a great day!
