Spooktacular Pals

Hey all! I'm back with another fun card - this time using the new Peek-a-Boo Pals Spooktacular set. My goodness this little Halloween set is just so fun! It just makes me smile so big!
For my card, I stamped and colored in all of the images. Then I die cut them and figured out how I wanted to position them on my card.  
Then, I die cut a panel using the Oval Burst die and heat embossed a sentiment on a banner. Finally, I added a layer of super fun (sneak peek!) piece of patterned gradient paper to my card base. Next, and I absolutely LOVE this technique, I added white splatter with a white watercolor. This adds a very distressed starry look. Finally, I assembled my card with dimensional foam. 

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

Wahoo! Are you ready for another fun blog hop? It's time for the 2019 Avery Elle Fall release blog hop!

Today, I'm here sharing projects using the new Polar Playtime stamp and die set! 
How fun is this card?!?! I stamped and die cut the penguin and images from the Polar Playtime stamp set. Then, I added some paper from the new Holiday Collection paper pad and elements from the Ephemera Holiday kit
To create my card, I layered the images, paper and ephemera with the Grand Photo Mat die. Eep, I love this die!

Hey all!  I'm back sharing another card - this time using the new Swell stamp set. I really love this background set that's actually super versatile. It's got a very fun, whimsical feel but also very masculine.

To create my card, I stamped the Swell stamp on some pattern paper with Avery Elle aquamarine ink

Then, I stamped, die cut and colored in the shark and pool floatie from Peek a Boo Summer Pals. Finally I stamped the sentiment (also from Swell) and then tied some Avery Elle cherry twine

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

Pool Party

Hey all! I'm back with a fun card using the super adorable Pool Party stamp set.
For my project I thought it'd be fun to share a little bit of how I created it. 
First, I die cut and colored in all of the images I wanted to use from Pool Party. Then, I decided I wanted to mount it on a fun layer. I decided to use the Quilted die in a non traditional way. I thought this would be a fun tip to share. :) I just filled the inside of the opening with dimensional foam and then completely covered it up with images. I love how you can really stretch your stash using this little tip. 

Finally, I just assembled the card. Super fun. I cannot wait to give this card away! 
Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me.
Have a great one!
