Avery Elle Blog Hop

Hello friends and welcome to the Avery Elle blog hop featuring the new 2015 CHA release!  Wahoo I'm excited!  I'm so excited about this release that I even created videos for you!  
Yay - I hope you like them!  

First up, I played with the new Easter Blessings stamp set.
Here's the card I created.
I used Finished Frames and Pinked dies to create the layers.  

Here's my video...

Next I heat embossed the stamps on a vellum layer.  I love the softness of this card. 

Next up, Furry Friends.  Sigh.  I love Furry Friends.  The pug. 
Furry Friends is out of stock at Avery Elle now.  You can find it here instead:
Impress Cards & Crafts
Ellen Hutson LLC
Simon Says Stamp

and many many other stores as well! 

Here's my first card.  
I used Dotted Borders and the Sorbet Collection to create this card.  The hearts are from More Stories. 

Here's the video...

I also created this card by masking!

Last but not least, Ellie!  Goodness I love this set. It's full of things for the little elephant to hold up high.  Eep!
Ellie is out of stock right now at Avery Elle but you can find it in stock here:

I used Dotted Borders and the Sorbet Collection to create this card.  

Here I colored these images in with colored pencils and then added paper from The Everyday Collection 6x6 paper pads. 

Now that I've held you hostage - it's time to get hopping!

This Easter Blessing stamp is gorgeous--especially the way you gold emboosed and aqua brush painted. I'm so glad that you added that pinkish layer to the kraft base. Super look. The other Easter Blessing card is so soft and delicate looking by embossing on vellum. Thanks for the share.

Jingle said...

I love them. I love them, I love them, I love them. P.S. I love them.

pursesforu said...

Love, love, love the Easter card! Help! What kind of embossing powder did you use!? I have tried everything and cannot get it to look like yours-so fluid like. Mine flattens out?? Thank you in advance! Versa marked and then gold embossing powder-brand?....missed your class at Impress in Tukwila-sad...
