Banner Bits Week with Katie

February 28, 2018


Katie here with a card to share with you featuring the Banner Bits stamp set. This set is filled with so many great sentiments, I pulled out a bunch that sounded like a party and put them together to create this rainbow birthday card.

I used Versafine to stamp the banners onto the different colors of card stock and embossed them with Avery Elle's clear embossing powder.  I adjusted the sentiments to follow the curve of the banner and stamped them onto the banners with Versafine followed by more clear embossing powder.

I die cut the Polka Plates Elle-ments die from white card stock and attached it to a white A2 notecard.  Finally, I used foam adhesive dots to adhere all the banners to the card.

Toucan Party With Yainea

February 26, 2018

It's Yainea here sharing a colorful thank you card using one of the sets from the new release: Toucan Party. I absolutely love this set because the cards created with it will be cheerful and colorful for sure!

I decided to create a thank you card because it's always great to have a bunch of them in case you need them ;)

First, I colored the images using Copic markers and die cut them. Then used the Horizontal Stripes die to die cut a pretty pink background to adhere to a darker pink cardbase. I cut a circle out of watercolor paper and used the new super cool Liquid Watercolors to color the sky.

I stamped my sentiment on a white stripe of cardstock and finally, I adhered everything together. So fun to create and a fun surprise for a friend!

I hope you like it and feel inspired to use this set! Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Supply list:
- Toucan Party Clear Stamps

Toucan Party Week - Day 4

February 22, 2018

Hi crafty friends! Ashley here sharing Toucan Party I INSTANTLY fell in love with this set when I received it and I love it even more now that I've created with it. Check it out...

To create my card I started with the background. I painted it with Celery Liquid Watercolor. These new watercolors are amazing. The best colors, beautiful coverage and blending...perfect.

Next, I stamped and colored the branches and the two birds. Finally, I finished my card with the sentiment embossed in Rose Gold Metallic embossing powder. Wow, such a gorgeous color.

I love this set and I know you will too! Thanks for stopping by!


Toucan Party Week - Day 3

February 21, 2018

Are you ready for a little "toucan party"?  This new stamp set has you covered when it comes to sentiments.....birthday, thanks, and just "tropi-cool"!

Toucan Party

To a panel of white cardstock, I ink blended some Broken China Distress Oxide ink to one corner (this does not have to be perfect).  To this panel, I used the Polka Dot Plate to die cut the polka dots.  

Toucan Party2

I stamped my images using New Moon Dye Ink, Copic colored, and die cut using the Toucan Party Elle-ments.  My sentiment was white heat embossed using Pure White Fine Embossing Powder.  I simply layered my images, some with foam adhesive, to my white notecard that was layered with the polka dot panel.


Toucan Party Week - Day 2

February 20, 2018

Hi all! It's Deasy here. Today I want to share my card for Avery Elle featuring Toucan Party stamp set. This set is so cute and versatile for any theme. For my card today, I made a fun birthday card. I hope you enjoy it :)

 Avery Elle supply that I'm using :
Toucan Party Clear Stamps for the images and sentiment
Toucan Party Elle-ments to die cut the images
Diagonal Stripes Elle-ments to die cut the frame on a yellow card stock and a white foam then glue them all together

I stamp, color the images using copic then die cut it. The sentiment is from white embossing powder. To color the background, I'm using Dye Ink Pad with blending tool then splash watercolor with my brush.

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

A New Design Team Member & Toucan Party Week - Day 1

February 19, 2018

Hi Everyone!  I am so excited because today I get to introduce a new design team member to you!  Nicky Meek is a fantastic card maker that creates the cutest scenes out of stamps and dies.  You can check out her work on her fantastic Instagram page - @nickynoocards .  She also has the cutest etsy shop, , that you don't want to miss.  I cannot wait to see what she is going to create next!

 Just check out her cute Toucan Party card!  It is too cute!!


In addition, Caryn has a really cute new card to share with us today too.  Let's take a peek.

"Hello, it's Caryn here with a couple of cards I've made using the gorgeous Toucan Party Clear Stamps and dies.  This is such a cool set to play with and is perfect for all kinds of occasions.  

I stamped all the images out using New Moon dye ink (I stamped extras of the foliage images so I'd have enough for the two cards) and coloured them all with Copics before die-cutting them.  

I used an orange card base and cut a mat using the Pierced Mats Elle-ments.  I layered my images using foam adhesive and finished by adding a good coating of Diamond Glaze (my favourite new/old thing to do!)

The second card uses a technique to get even more from your dies - by creating a stencil!  I made a stencil (using the Chevron Mat Coverplate die) from card but you could easily use acetate so you can re-use it again and again.  I taped the stencil down over a piece of green card (die cut using the Double Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments) and then used a spatula to spread the texture paste onto the card. 

Once this had dried I added my coloured images and finished it off with a sentiment from the Banner Bits stamp set and die collection."

Spring Bouqet Week - Day 5

February 16, 2018

Hi Everyone! Ashley here today sharing the new stamp set Spring Bouquet!

I started my card by stamping and die cutting the main flowers from Spring Bouquet. I colored them a soft shade of pink and green. I balanced the color by adding them  to a blue water colored background. 

I finished the card by embossing the sentiment at the bottom of the card on black card stock. 

Thanks for stopping by!


Spring Bouquet Week - Day 4

February 15, 2018

Hey everyone!  It's Heather here with a card using the new Spring Bouquet set.
I absolutely love this new set.  These lilies are gorgeous!

To create my card, I heat embossed the lilies on my card base and also on vellum.  I die cut the vellum lilies using the coordinating dies.  On my card base, I ink blended to add color.  On my lilies, I used Copics on the reverse side of the vellum (the non-stamped side) and added color to my lilies. 

I absolutely am obsessed with adding color to vellum stamped images using this technique - especially with flowers because it's so soft this way!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Spring Bouquet Week - Day 3

February 14, 2018

Hello friends,

Katie here to share a card with you featuring the gorgeous Spring Bouquet stamp set and Avery Elle's new liquid watercolors.

To make the bouquet, first I stamped the the floral images with Versafine black ink and then I heat embossed the stamped images with clear embossing powder.  I watercolored with Mimose and Lemongrass allowing the colors to dry completely before going back with additional layers of pigment.  For the darker shades at the center of the lilies and in the shaded areas of the stems and buds, I used Fizz and Celery watercolors.

The two stand alone lily images in the stamp set coordinate with two of the flowers in the bouquet, so I took the opportunity to add some dimension to the bouquet by adhering the coordinating flowers over top of the bouquet with foam tape. I tied the bouquet with some twine before adhering the bouquet to a circle cut with the Pierced Circles Elle-ments die and stamped with the "thank you" sentiment included in the set.   I adhered the circle to an A2 notecard that I matted with the new Chevron Mat Elle-ments die.  I love how the circle gives the mat a whole different look!

Spring Bouquet Week & Watercolor Video - Day 2

February 13, 2018

Hello Avery Elle fans!  It's Caryn here today and I'm SO EXCITED to be able to share a couple of cards I've created using the Spring Bouquet clear stamps and dies.   This set particularly lends itself (as do all our other floral sets) to our brand new Liquid Watercolours.  These come in 10 delicious colours and here I've used a few of my favourites (Cherry, Fizz and Mimosa).  I've also created a third card in another colour variation in the video below (look out for the bonus card too!!!).

Both cards use the same main supplies and are just variations of each other.  Both start off as blank 41/4" x 51/2" white cards with Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks (on the pink version) and Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink blended on the orange one.

I used the brand new Polka Plate Elle-ments but added a twist by using two of the circle dies from the Burst Elle-ments to die cut an aperture and circle frame.  I pieced in the "frame" which I cut from another piece of white card into the negative space and adhered the die cut to the card front.

I stamped all the flower elements onto water colour cardstock using Versamark ink then heat embossed them using Avery Elle fine white embossing powder.  My preferred method for watercolouring heat embossed images is to cover the area inside the embossed outline with clean water to saturate the paper then pick up the colour and drop it onto the wetted paper.  This allows the paint to flow freely and naturally but you can also fiddle with it to get it looking exactly how you want it.   For the pink lilies I used Cherry Liquid Watercolour and for the orange lilies I used a combination of Mimosa, Fizz and Cherry.  They mix beautifully and a tiny amount really does go a long way.

You can't really see it in the photos but as always, I have added a touch of shimmer to the images using a Spectrum Noir glitter brush.
