Avery Elle Blog Hop


Hooray!  I'm so excited because it's finally release day!  Stick with me because this is going to be quite the post...  I'm also going to be sharing my projects from Tuesday again because... well... I love them that much. :)

You should have arrived here from the fabulous Caryn Davies' blog.  Next you'll head to JJ Bolton's blog.  The entire hop list is included at the end of this post for you. 
First there was Storybook.  Meet More Stories.  


The concept is still the same - little animals all looking up.  I tried not to duplicate anything that was in Storybook because I wanted it to work well independently but also be a fantastic add on set too!

I love this hedgehog so much, so I really wanted to play around with it for the hop. 

And the penguin, eek! 

Here's the card I shared on Tuesday.  I love the seasonal accents which I didn't have space for in Storybook. 

I really had fun drawing so I kept going... Meet Be Jolly!
 
This little snowman I had intended to fit in More Stories but decided to pull it out because it just didn't fit with the theme.  I love him as a stand alone mini!  I didn't get around to making another sample with him - but eek, he's cute. 


I love a great floral set and had a few ideas for a set so I kept drawing.  Yes, this is another hand drawn set. :) Meet Fabulous Florals

 

I drew this set to have a ton of possibilities.  There's open and solid images and almost every stamp has a two-step stamp possibility but most are interchangeable.  

To create this card, I stamped all the flowers on a layer to cluster around the bottom of the card. 

Here's my sample from Tuesday. 
Here I used just about every solid stamp in the set.  I can't pick out my favorite flower but I can tell you I love love love the two buds (in pink and blue in the card I did!).  To stamp these, I stamp the green part first, die cut it and then stamp the lighter color bud to finish it. 

I added clear Wink of Stella glitter and white gel pen accents to most of the flowers to embellish them a little.  

Don't forget about The Everyday Collection 6x6 paper pad.  It's amazing. 


This is still a basic paper pad so it fits very well with the Sorbet and the Brights collections but this is bright and cheery and full of possibilities!
