Hey everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Today, I've got a card on the Avery Elle blog - be sure to head there to check it out! 

Oh my gosh I'm excited to be here playing with the new Windmill stamp set.  This set is so much fun to play with.  There are so many bits and pieces which really allow you to customize your own little scene.  My favorite little images have to be the bugs.  Eep - so cute!

To create my card, I ink blended my background of clouds and grass using a stencil I created with Picket Fences dies. Then I stamped, colored and die cut all of the different elements to create my scene.

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

Essentials by Ellen hop

Hello everyone!  Hope you're having a fantastic day!

I'm continuing the new Essentials by Ellen release hop fun and have a card to share!  You should have arrived here from Julia Stainton's blog.   If you just got here and haven't hopped, head to the classroom to start!

The latest release in the Essentials by Ellen line is absolutely amazing!  Oh my gosh, it's so fun and festive!  Who doesn't love to celebrate?!?!

For my card, I am playing with the new YAY dies!   I die cut the balloons and stars and sponged distress ink onto them to create a very light and airy effect!  For the letters, I left them white to create a fun tone-on-tone effect.  I adhere all the layers back together and created a fun card perfect for any recipient! 

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


Love is in the Air

Hey everyone!  I'm back sharing a card with the new Love Is In The Air.

Oh my gosh I love this set soooo much!  Something about clouds just makes me happy!

To create my card, I stamped a background using Sea Glass and Mermaid ink.  Then I die cut a frame from the Large Pierced Scallops dies and popped my frame up on foam.  Finally I stamped and die cut the heart balloon and string from Love Is In The Air and then stamped, die cut and colored in the birds to pop them all up on foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with us here!

Have a great day!
