Phonomenal

Hey everyone! I'm back sharing a card using the super hip Phonomenal stamp set.

To create my card, I first stamped and die cut the images from the Phenomenal stamp set. Then, I added a sentiment and stamped the flowers on the bowl. 

To assemble the card, I die cut the large Oval Burst die and then ink blended a background. Finally, I assembled it all with dimensional foam and added some finishing sequins. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me.

Avery Elle Market Stand

Hello hello!  How are you all doing today?
I'm so excited to be here sharing my latest card using the new Market Stand stamp set.  Don't you jut love this market stand?  It's so fun, especially with the Peek-a-Boo Pals line.

For my card, I thought it'd be fun to share how I add a pattern to the base of the market stand.
First, I took post it notes and placed them strategically along the stamped line of my die cut image.  Then, I stamped the inner images. 


As you can see, once I remove the post it notes, the lemons are perfectly masked and appear as part of the lager set. I love using accessory images in just this way! 
There you have it!  Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  Have a great one! 
XO, Heather

Cake For All

Hey everyone!  I'm back with a card using the new Avery Elle Cake For All stamp set.  I love this set and how you can decorate the cake to fit any occasion or recipient!  Such a great, universal set!
For my card, I decided to put the beautiful flowers on it with the great sparkler candles. 
 I dabbed different ink colors onto the sparklers to make them appear multicolor!

Avery Elle - Easter Chicks

Hey everyone! I'm back sharing my latest card using the new Easter Chicks stamp set.

These Easter Chicks are just too fun and it's such a cute little set.  I also love how they're totally versatile and work for way more than just Easter.

To create my card, I stamped and die cut each of the chicks and butterflies.  Then I colored them in and added some sweet gel pen accents.  Then I heat embossed and die cut the banner from Banner Bits. Finally, I die cut my layers using the new Quilted Framecover plate die.

Such a sweet little grouping of chicks. 
Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!

Peek a Boo Pals

Hey everyone! I'm so thrilled to be here today because I get to share one of my favorite cards I've ever made.
I'm having so much fun with the Peek-a-Boo series and these Peek-a-Boo Pets are just too much fun. 

To create my card, I stamped and die cut the pig, sheep, cow and chick (omg, that chick!!!) and their coordinating feet/wings.  I also stamped and die cut the sentiment bubbles and stars.  I colored them in and set them aside.  To work on the card base, I ink blended a background and then adhered some clouds from Photo Mat.  I used the Oval Burst die to create a mat and then just popped the images behind it.   

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

All of Us

First of all, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!  If I had realized when I made this card it'd be posting on Valentine's I probably would have changed the theme of this card.  But I didn't so you get birthday instead! :)

For my post today, I'm playing with the new Avery Elle All of Us stamp set.  When I was designing this set, I loved the idea of it so I'm thrilled it's here and now I get to see it come to life.
To create my card, I stamped and die cut 2 rows of cats.  I colored them in having so much fun replicating just about any cat color combo I could think of.  Then, I stamped and die cut 2 of the sentiment and some party hats. 

I love how you can pop the sentiments up on these signs the animals can be holding. It puts a fun spin on it. :) I created a shaker using some sequins and accented it with the Avery Elle course glitter

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

Simple Sentiments

Hey everyone! I'm back from Creativation 2019 and am totally wiped out.  But I still couldn't resist sharing a card with you!

Today, I've got a card to share using the new Simple Sentiments stamp set. I paired it with Peek-a-Boo PalsStarry Scene and Photo Mat dies.
First, I stamped the background using Starry Scene in Avery Elle Aquamarine ink and then die cut it out with the coordinating die.  Then, I stamped the images from Peek-a-Boo Pals, colored them in and then die cut them out.  Finally, I die cut the polaroid shape from Photo Mat dies.

I assembled the card and then heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock to add to the card. 

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

And Then

Hey all!  Today I've got a fun card using the amazing new Avery Elle And Then sentiment stamp set.
To create my card, I decided to have some fun with the sentiment and create a really cool splash of color behind it. To do this, I followed a few easy steps.
 First, I positioned my stamp on my MISTI and then inked the stamp with a few colors of water reactive ink (distress inks).
Next, I spritzed the inked up stamp with water.
Quickly, I stamped the spritzed stamp onto my card.
Finally, once it was dry, I stamped the sentiment in black ink onto the card and ta-da done!  I love the look of this.  So fun too!
Once I had the sentiment assembled, I positioned a few Peek-a-Boo Pals behind the largest Wonky Scallops frame die to finish my card.  
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
