Hooray Week - Day 3

December 11, 2019

Hello!  Amy here sharing a colorful THANKS card that was super quick to make using the amazing pigment inks from Avery Elle!

Inks used:
Lemon Grass


The 'thanks' stamp, from Hooray, was stamped repeatedly down a panel of white cardstock, moving the paper up 3/4" each time.  This panel was adhered to white note card that was lined on the left side with a strip of black/white striped paper from The Neutral Collection.

To finish, the sentiments from Hooray were stamped onto Simple Sentiment Elle-ments and adhered with foam adhesive.

Over to Caryn....

I have a very festive take on Hooray stamp set and have paired the "Merry" sentiment with and "oldie but goodie" stamp set, Holiday Bouquet.  This is still one of my go-to sets for Christmas cards, I love to colour the poinsettias in different colours for unique looks.  

I stamped and embossed the "Merry" in gold embossing powder then fussy cut around it.  I picked out the Merry Christmas from the Quirky Christmas set (retired) and stamped it in Truffle pigment ink and cut it into a banner.

For the flowers I stamped them in a very light brown ink and then coloured them with Copics for a "no-line" effect and then die cut them using the co-ordinating dies.

To finish I added some shimmer to the flowers and added a splatter of white paint.

Hi there,

Elena here, with a fun card using the Hooray stamp set, as well as images from Wheelie Great.

I started out by stamping the bunny, the little bird, and the flowers for the basket. I die-cut them all and colored in the images using copic markers. I also stamped some clouds from another new set, Cupids.

I cut the largest Wonky Stitches rectangle, and did some soft blue ink blending in the center, leaving the edges all white.

Then, I stamped the large Hooray sentiment right where I wanted it, and stamped it again onto the edge of one of the clouds so when I adhered everything, it would look continuous. I also die-cut the edges of the clouds with the Wonky Stitches rectangle, to maintain the look of that edge.

I finished off the card with a secondary greeting underneath the bunny. I like to ground the images on my cards, and this small, straight sentiments did just that.

I hope you like it!

Hooray Week - Day 1

December 9, 2019

Hey everybody this is Nicky with you today and I have a new card for Avery Elle Stamps that puts the new Hooray sentiment set front and center.

This great sentiment set will be a set you reach for time and time again for all manner and style of cards.  I chose to layer it over a now discontinued background die but there's nothing this wouldn't work with.

To create this card I die cut (embossed) the background panel then ink blended with Distress Ink blending to a lighter focal point.   I coloured the balloons and stars with Copic markers and adhered it to a 110lb white cardstock base.  Points were highlighted with a white gel pen.

To create the large 'hooray' I  stamped the sentiment with archival ink on to white cardstock.  I then fussy cut the word and used a craft knife to remove the centres.  This sentiment was backed with foam tape and applied over the scene where it appears to float.  I then used Glossy Accents glue to apply a glossy layer over the top.  The smaller sentiment was stamped and the card set aside to fully dry.

Finally, I reached into my stash of embellishments and selected various sizes of Sparkling Clear Sequins  to add a celebratory sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by and I'll see you next time!
