Brring On The Joy

Hey everyone!!!  I've got a card on the Avery Elle blog today with the new Brring On The Joy stamp set!  These penguins absolutely crack me up and I just love all the elements that accompany these skating penguins!

You can see the entire card making process in the video below! 

I don't normally share videos of the entire card making process but just couldn't resist here! :) What'd you think?  Did you like the Copic colors listed in the video???

I used the Wonky Stitches die to create a background and cut stars from the new Cityscapes die.  The banner is from Woodland Wonders and of course all of the penguin elements are from Brring On The Joy!

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

Hey everyone! I've got two cards over on the Avery Elle blog that I wanted to share with here!  This week the Avery Elle blog is introducing with the new Bewitching stamp set and coordinating dies.
Have you stopped by to check it out???

First, I used the Bewitching witch and made her the star of the show in a spooky ink blended night sky!  The houses, moon and clouds are die cut from the new Cityscapes die. The frames is from the Scalloped Pierced Rectangles die.

I added a good amount of sparkle to her cape and hat.  I love adding details like this!

Since I had all of the images from Bewitching stamped and ready to go, I decided to create one more card with the ghosts!  I had the hardest time choosing which face to put on my ghost but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.   

I used the Cityscapes die to create a city in the background and then added the path to show the trail to the spooky city in the night.  I'm not exactly sure which of the dies in this Cityscapes die set is my favorite - because I know I'm going to get a lot of use of that city die... but... I love these stars!  I simply added yellow behind the cardstock to create colorful stars. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me! 
I hope you have a wonderful day!

Avery Elle Blog Hop

Hey everyone!
It's time for the Fall 2017 blog hop! Can you believe we're already into Christmas stamps??? Eep! I'm not ready for it quite yet but I do love cute stamps and this release is phenomenal!!!
It's all available now in the store - so enjoy the hop and get shopping!!!

You should have arrived here from Caryn Davies' blog.  If you're just getting started or get lost along the way, head to the Avery Elle blog.

For today's hop, I am playing with the new Winter Woodland Wonders stamp set.

For the hop, I thought it would be fun to create a video to share some of the fun things you can do with this set.  

Now to the projects!  (Yes, I made 2!)

I could play with these stamps for hours!

To start, I used both of the trees on the same side and I've flipped one of the trees like I showed in the video.  Then, I've tucked them behind a snow drift created with the Picket Fences dies.  The starry snow background is from the new Cityscape die

So cute and sweet! :) 

Here I'm using the bear and have some of the ornaments hanging down which are catching his eye.  This bird.  I'm obsessed. 

Let's be honest, I'm just obsessed with every image in this set.  :)

Next up, time to get hopping'!  Your next stop is Yainea's blog!

Hello everyone! 
Posting another quick Avery Elle card today. 

I used the new Tropics Clear Stamps and stamped them in black. Then, I added small bits of color and added a sentiment from Aloha Clear Stamps.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
