Snow Tags

Hey everyone!  I'm over on the Avery Elle blog today sharing a project I created with the new Snow Tags stamps and coordinating dies!
I heat embossed the snowflakes with Avery Elle white embossing powder and then die cut them out of the cardstock.  I then stamped the snowman from Christmas Magic and colored and die cut them.  The sentiments were heat embossed as well and cut apart to create more of a label look.  

On top of each snowflake, I used the new Wonky 3D Bow die to add a topper to each snowflake.  I love these wonky bows so much!   The twine is all Avery Elle too.  Best. Twine. EVER! 

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

Corner Sentiments

Hey everyone!
I'm over on the Avery Elle blog today with a card using the super fun and very original Corner Sentiments Holiday stamp set.  Be sure to stop by and say HI there too!
To create my card, I ink blended a background lightly with my Avery Elle inks.  Then, I stamped the snowflakes in those same ink colors and lastly added the sentiment.  To finish my card, I added a good dusting and droplets of shimmer spray!  Easy, sophisticated and one layer - great for mailing this holiday season!

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

Avery Elle Fall Release Blog Hop


Hey everyone!  Welcome to the Avery Elle Fall 2018 Blog Hop!  Wahoo!

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Caryn Davies' blog.  Otherwise, head to the Avery Elle blog to start from the beginning or if you get lost along the way! 

As always, I'm so excited for this release.  This release is full of fantastic holiday sets with a little bit of everything.  I honestly cannot pick a favorite. Good problem to have, right? :) 

For the release, I played with two sets from this release - Christmas Magic and Starry Scene.  Christmas Magic is a great whimsical, 3x4 mini set complete with a Christmas unicorn!  Starry Scene is a really cool stamp set designed perfectly for creating stamped backgrounds.  I've had this design in my head for so long so I'm very excited to finally see it come to life!


To create my card, I stamped the starry background with Avery Elle Seaglass ink.  Tip - if you're struggling with ink coverage - you can always ink it up with Versamark ink first and then ink with your colored ink!



I stamped, die cut and colored all of the images from Christmas Magic (oh my goodness - this unicorn is my favorite!!!) and then adhered everything to my card with dimensional adhesive.  Finally, I added a sentiment and added some glossy accents, sequins and some bakers twine!

Next stop on the hop - head to Yainea's blog!

Blooming

Hey everyone!  I'm over on the Avery Elle blog today sharing this card I created with the new Blooming stamp set.

To create my card, I stamped and die cut the floral frame.  Then I colored it in.  

To assemble the card, I die cut a panel using Wonky Stitches and then heat embossed the sentiment to fit perfectly in the window.  Finally I adhered everything using dimensional adhesive and then added rhinestone accents.

Fuchsia card

Hey everyone!   So excited to be sharing this card I made with the new Avery Elle Fuchsia stamp set.

Sweetest

Hey everyone! I've got a card on the Avery Elle blog today using the new Sweetest stamp set and coordinating dies.
To create my card, I stamped, die cut and colored in the images from Sweetest.  Then, I die cut the medium size frame from Wonky Scalloped Frames.   Behind the frame, I tucked a piece of patterned paper from the Sorbet Collection of Avery Elle 6x6 paper pads.
I tied a bow using Aquamarine twine and then stapled it to my card. Then, assembled everything on top. 

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

Peek-a-Boo Pals

Hey everyone! I'm over on the Avery Elle blog today sharing these cards using the new Peek-a-Boo Pals stamp set.
This stamp set is SO fun!  I loved coloring each of the images in and then die cutting them out and playing with all of the options for positioning them.  

For my first card, I used Wonky Scallops and created a frame to have my peek-a-boo pals peeping out from behind.  I love the star accents and had fun adding accents to the party hats. 

For my second card, I used the smallest Wonky Scallops to create what I envision are hanging picture frames.  
Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  Have a wonderful day!

Painted Backdrops

Hey hey!  I've got a card using the new Painted Backdrops stamp set over on the Avery Elle blog today!
I love this Painted Backdrops set because it makes getting the look of something painted or stencil behind an image so much easier than doing the real thing!  A stamp creates the perfect end result every time!  What's not to love?!?! :)

For my card, I stamped the circle in Sea Glass ink.  Then, I stamped, die cut and colored in the puffer fish and party blower from the Sea-Prise stamp set.  Before I assembled the card, I die cut the panel using Wonky Stitches and stamped the background fish and sentiment.  Finally I accented it all with some sequins and mounted it on my card base!  

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

Hey everyone!!!  It's time for another Ellen Hutson United We Flourish release and this month is a beautiful Waffleflower stamp and die set.  

It's the prettiest multi-stamp set that creates a needlepoint globe - but the globe actually can be stamped into flowers!  Thud.  So cool!
To create my card, I stamped the globe and added a sentiment and then added an accent die cut frame.  
Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  Have a great one! 
Thanks, Heather

Magnolias

Hey all!  Today I've got a card using the new Avery Elle Magnolia stamp set.
To create my card, I heat embossed the magnolias on watercolor paper and then watercolored with the new Avery Elle Cherry and Celery watercolors.  One dry, I die cut them out with the coordinating Magnolia dies. 

To create the card, I ink blended a coordinating background and accented with a frame from the new Avery Elle Wonky Scallops die, and then assembled the magnolias on the card base, all adhered with dimensional adhesive!   

Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  
XOXO, Heather

Avery Elle Blog Hop


Hey everyone!  It's Avery Elle blog hop time!  

Today, I'm sharing projects from the new Sea-prise stamp set.  This stamp set has got to be one of my all time favorites. The images are just adorable and so fun to play with! 
For the hop, I created two cards.
First I used the puffer fish and created a super fun little shaker card. 

Next I used the shark and tucked him in some vellum layers to make it look like he's popping out of the ocean.

Happy Birthday Bears

Surprise!  I'm popping in with a fun Essentials by Ellen card today! :)
Seriously though, this bear might be one of my favorite stamps of all time.  It's just too stinking adorable.
For my card, I stamped and then masked each bear to create the depth of bears.  I managed to do this with only 3 masks - so don't hesitate to try this technique yourself.  If you're not familiar with masking, you can check out this video here. 

I also masked the balloons and then stamped a sentiment and added a strip of patterned paper to assemble my card.  I had so much fun coloring in all of these bears too!  I feel like each one just oozes personality, right?! 

Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!
