Love is In the Air Week - Day 4

January 18, 2018

Hello there!

It's Yainea here today to share a pair of shaker tags I made featuring Love is in the Air set. I love that this set combines solid with non-solid images and it's full of cute images! It's perfect for Valentine's cards but I used it to make something that would suit any occassion. These tags were easy to make thanks to the Shaker Tags Elle-ments dies.

First I sponged some ink on the background with a blending tool and stamped the super cute clouds from teh set. I colored the birds with Copic markers and adhered on on the background. Then I mounted the shaker tags, adding some fun sparkling elements inside. To finish the tags I adhered the other bird on top with the sentiment and a little heart.

I hope you like my project for today and give these tags a try! They are fun to create and a sweet addition to a sweet gift for a special someone :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a nice day!!

Love Is In The Air Week - Day 3

January 17, 2018

Hello!  Amy K. here for a fun week ahead!  
Can I say one word?  CREATIVATION.  I am so excited to be attending this year working in the Avery Elle booth!  If you are coming, make sure to stop by for a make 'n take, to say hello, and maybe a selfie!  We have some fabulous new products that we can't wait to show you!

Love is in the Air

I could not wait to use the set today.  Balloons are so trendy right now and seriously, who wouldn't love this big heart balloon from Love is in the Air?  I've stamped the balloon in Raspberry Pigment Ink leaving the center a bit lighter.  After die cutting, I added the white bit to the balloon.  The clouds (flat bottom are my favorite) were stamped with Sea Glass and Aquamarine Pigment Inks.  My sentiment was stamped using New Moon Dye Ink.  

Love is in the Air2

For my main panel, I used the Postage Stamp Elle-ments frame and rectangle.  To the rectangle, I ombre blended Sea Glass Pigment Ink.  I adhered both the frame and panel to my white notecard.  After I adhered the balloon and clouds, I stamped some of the solid hearts in more Raspberry Pigment Ink and added the balloon string.

Love Is In the Air - Day 1

January 15, 2018

Hey there!  Caryn here.  This is an exciting week for many reasons - one is I get to share a card using the amazing Love Is In The Air stamp set and two - IT'S CHA THIS WEEKEND!!!  If you're going to be there, please stop by the Avery Elle Booth 2636 and say hi to us!!

So onto the card.  I covered my card in a watercolour effect paper and stamped and die cut the banners from Balloons and Banners.  I wanted the card to feel quite informal so I only loosely coloured the flags with Copics.  I used my MISTI to stamp a graduated colour onto the largest of the solid heart stamps using pigment inks and then finished with the sentiment stamped in the middle.

Lava You with Heather

January 11, 2018

Hey y'all!  It's Heather here today!

Today, I'm sharing a fun card I created using the new Lava You stamp set!

To create my card, I stamped the volcano outline. Then, I added the solid images to the inside of the stamped lines. 
For the lava, I thought it'd be super fun to create it two-tone.  To do this, I inked up the entire stamp in the lightest color (here it's the yellow) than I went back and dabbed the ink pad carefully onto the stamp on the bottom portion only with the darker color (red).   You can see how it looks awesome on the stamp!

I had so much fun with this technique, I actually ended up using this same technique for all of the stamps - including the volcano! 

This is definitely one of those fun techniques that can really be fun! 

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

Otterly Fantastic With Katie

January 10, 2018


Katie Gehring here with a card to share with you today featuring the totally adorable Otterly Fantastic stamp set.  These otters are the just the cutest, so I couldn't resist using two on my simple card!

I stamped, colored and die cut the otters and the hearts. I blended a circle of Distress Oxide Ink in Salty Ocean onto a panel of watercolor cards tock and spritzed with with water to lift some of the pigment.

I adhered the otters to the panel of watercolor card stock and die cut the panel with the Wonky Stitches Elle-ments die. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and attached the panel to a red note card.  A few clear gems add a finishing touch. 


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Otterly Fantastic With Yainea

January 8, 2018

Hello there!
It's Yainea here today with a simple card featuring Otterly Fantastic stamps and dies. How cute are those otters?? I really love otters so I'm always happy using them on my cards and projects.

I decided to go quick and simple, because sometimes we need just that to have a special handmade card for a special someone but we don't have a lot of time to make it.

I started with a pair of watercolors, aqua and teal and created a super quick background, finishing it sprinkling some more color on top. Then I stamped one of the otters and the little shell and used Copic makers to add some color.

After that, I die cut them using the coordinating dies, I love the one that creates cuts so the otter can hold little things!. To frame the little otter, I used a die I love, Heart Frame. Finally, I added some twine and little gems as a final touch.

I hope you like my project for today! Thank you so much for stopping by, have a nice day!!

Balloons & Banners Week - Day 4

January 4, 2018

Hi Everyone! Ashley here today sharing the super fun and versatile Balloons & Banners!

I started my card by heat embossing the double banner from Balloons & Banners on watercolor paper. Next, I water colored the background with Distress Inks. 

After my background was complete I watered colored another panel and stamped the balloon after it dried. I finished my card with Birthday Bus (one of my ALL time favorites!) and an embossed sentiment from Balloons & Banners.

This card was so fun to create! Thanks for stopping by!


Balloons & Banners Week - Day 3

January 3, 2018

Hello and welcome to the new year!  As 2017 wrapped up for me, I had several birthdays to celebrate.  I found Balloons & Banners was a perfect basic set for both masculine and feminine depending on the color combinations used.  

Balloons & Banners

I went with a rainbow look using Avery Elle's pigments inks in Cherry, Fizz, Mimosa, Celery, Aquamarine, and Sugar Plum.  I created the distressed look to my balloons by inking them up with the ink, "dabbing" off some of the ink with a baby wipe, and stamping.  It made for some amazing balloons!  To create my balloon strings, I masked off one balloon and used that repeatedly to stamp my string "behind" the other balloons.  My sentiment was white heat embossed onto a black strip of cardstock.  One last detail was using the tiny solid circle from the Windmill stamp set to do the same technique as the balloons.

Hope you and yours have had the best holiday season ever so far.  I still feel very festive and am excited by what 2018 will bring.  I wish you all the very best for the coming year.

Today I'm sharing a card and a wee video of how to make a simple shaker card using the gorgeous Balloons and Banners stamps and co-ordinating Elle-ments.  I love the font in this set, I think it really lends itself to a fun style of birthday card and what could be more fun than balloons?
