Fuchsia card

Hey everyone!   So excited to be sharing this card I made with the new Avery Elle Fuchsia stamp set.
To create my card, I first stamped the images in Versamark and then heat embossed them using Avery Elle Pure White embossing powder.  Then I colored them in with colored pencils.  To see some action shots and learn a little more about how I pulled this card today, head to the Avery Elle blog!

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

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!

Loved & Admired

Back with another card featuring Loved & Admired.  I adore this stamp set - these sentiments are the best and the floral frame is just too pretty.
For my card I stamped the floral frame on a die cut panel and colored it in with cardstock. 

Then I added a sentiment and popped a toucan up on some dimensional foam.  Easy peasy and super pretty!  

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