Splash! Week - Day 3

March 21, 2018

Hello!  Amy K. here.  There was quite the buzz at Creativation with today's set called Splash.  It's just genius and adorable!

I wanted to share a card using this set in a more clean and simple way.  Using some blue chevron paper from the The Everyday Collection Paper Pad, I trimmed a strip down and layered it with a light pink cardstock.  I colored the cute unicorn floatie and the swan floatie with Copics and die cut using the coordinating Splash Elle-ments.  I added my floaties with foam adhesive and added some rain stone droplets for a water effect. 

Tip:  To take this card to another level, use the coordinating Splash Elle-ments with the swimming pool die!  It makes for a cute shaped card!




Splash! Week - Day 2

March 20, 2018

Hi all! It's Deasy here. Today I want to share my card for Avery Elle featuring Splash! stamp set. This set is so gorgeous and cute! For my card today, I made a fun shaker card.

Avery Elle supply that I'm using :
Splash! Clear Stamps for the images and sentiment
Splash! Elle-ments to die cut the images
AE Coarse Glitter for the shaker

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 Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio with blending tool then splash water with my brush.

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

Splash Week - Day 1

March 19, 2018

Hey there, it's Caryn here starting off a week of inspiration featuring the Splash clear stamp set and co-ordinating Elle-ments.  Lately I've been having a LOT of fun with the new Avery Elle Liquid Watercolours (look out for a video coming very soon) and have created a perfect backdrop for my chilled out bathing beauties!

I used a thin Yupo paper (picked it up on Amazon) and spritzed it with a fine spray of water before adding Aquamarine liquid watercolour onto it with a paintbrush.  I wasn't too careful or precise as I wanted the background to have some movement and appear more ... watery!  The paper was put aside to dry naturally which does take a bit of time so it's a good idea to create a few background panels in advance so you have them on hand and ready when you want to put a card together!

I stamped a couple of ladies and their floaties of choice onto Neenah white cardstock and coloured them with Copics and then die cut them.  I glued the dried watercoloured panel onto a white A2 card front (landscape orientation) and then added the ladies and a few clear droplets here and there.  I finished of by cutting a strip of aquamarine coloured card and white heat embossed the Birthday Wishes sentiment from the Critter Crew set and tied it off with some Aquamarine twine.


World's Greatest Week - Day 4

March 16, 2018

Hi Everyone! Ashley here today sharing the World's Greatest plus a few of my other favorites from the latest Avery Elle release.

To start my card, I heat embossed the trophy from World's Greatest with Pure White Embossing Powder. Next I used Mimosa and Mint to Be liquid watercolors to paint the trophy and background. 

Then I stamped, die cut and colored the flower from Toucan Party I finished the card with a die cut banner and an embossed sentiment from Banner Bits.

Thanks for stopping by!

World's Greatest Week - Day 3

March 15, 2018

Hey everyone!  It's Heather here.
It's World's Greatest week here and oh my gosh, I am so excited for this set!  It's a basic but, in my experience, you really can never go wrong with basics.   I know I'm going to get a ton of mileage from this little set.  Plus, have you seen the sentiment combinations?! (World's Greatest Farter!!!! We all know that person this will make the perfect card for! :))

I decided this set was so fun, I'd make not one but TWO cards to share with you today.

First, I stamped, colored and die cut the trophy.  I kept this card pretty simple with a die cut circle and a bit of washi tape.

However, I thought it would be great to add a little mouse in the tropy - so I pulled out Storybook and stamped the mouse.

Next, I wanted to get a little funny.

I had to use the farter sentiment. It's just too perfect.
Thank you so much for stopping in and sharing part of your day with me.
Have a wonderful day!

World's Greatest Week - Day 2

March 14, 2018

Hello friends,
Katie here today to share with you a funny card featuring the World's Greatest stamp set. It's not every stamp set that includes a "farter" sentiment, so my inner 4th grader and I couldn't resist using it on a card.

I stamped, colored and die cut the trophy image from World's Greatest and added the sentiment (hee hee). Next, I added some little bunnies to the mix from the Party Pals stamp set.  They are the perfect size for fitting inside and next to the trophy. 

I die cut the Star Frame Elle-ments from white card stock and added color with a few shades of Distress Oxide inks.  A frame cut created with the Pierced Mats Elle-ments holds everything together.


I hope this card made you giggle. I have the perfect "farter" I mean "father" in mind for this one!

Thanks for stopping by!

Party Pals With Elena

March 13, 2018

Hi there!

Elena here, with a card that mixes some of our newest products:

I used a Pierced Mat die to frame out my focal image: a Party Pals totem pole. I love Party Pals so much! The animals are so adorable, and I know I'll be crafting with them again and again.

Behind the images, I used the new watercolors to paint a quick background. I wet a piece of watercolor paper and then dropped some color onto it and let it spread. If you have trouble with your watercolor paper warping, maybe you'd like this tip: I sandwiched my paper in between thin kitchen towels and ironed it back to flat.

The darker background helps the images to pop, and the stitching around the Pierced Mat adds the perfect finishing detail.

I hope you like what I've created! Thanks for stopping by.

Mermaids Week - Day 4

March 8, 2018

Hi everyone! Ashley here sharing the super sweet Mermaids stamps and dies. This small set is amazing...I mean MERmazing. 

Let me show you...

To create my card I started with the background. I water colored a wonky rectangle with Aquamarine and Mimosa. Avery Elle has put together the best color palette in their water colors. I love and need each and every color. 

Next, I stamped and die cut the mermaids and seaweed. I did a lot of ombre coloring, starting with a lighter shade and working to a darker shade. I'm already looking forward to coloring these mermaids again...maybe with colored hair next time. 

Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder. The crisp and perfectly smooth sentiment makes me so happy! These new Avery Elle embossing powders are addicting because they are so easy to use and the results are stunning!

Thanks for stopping by today! I can't wait to see what you create!


Mermaids Week - Day 3

March 7, 2018

Welcome!  Amy K. here with a "Mermazing" card using the Mermaid stamps and the NEW liquid watercolors!  


I started with Aquamarine, Mint to Be and Sapphire liquid watercolors and a piece of watercolor paper.  Using the watercolors, I loosely watercolored a background and added splatters of the same colors.  


I stamped and die cut all my images and then using more of the watercolors, I colored all of my die cuts.  So all the elements of the images....hair, skin, seahorse, were all colored with mixed colors of the various Avery Elle liquid watercolors!  

The main die cuts were adhered with foam adhesive and some dew drops were added.  To finish, I stamped the sentiment in Mermaid Pigment Ink on a hand trimmed banner strip.


So play around with the watercolors and have fun!!

Mermaids Week - Day 2

March 6, 2018

Hey everyone!  It's Heather here.

Are you feeling the Mermaid love yet?  I tell ya - this set just makes me happy!  I love these little mermaids and I especially love how the pair fantastically with the previously released Bubbles set. 

If you didn't see the video introducing this set, be certain to check it out here.

To the card, shall we? Actually... I created TWO cards!

For my first card, I created a distress paint background by simply circling the paint in the center of the cardstock.  I die cut it using the new Pierced Mat die. 

Then, I stamped, die cut and colored my mermaids.  The sentiment is stamped on a banner from Wonky Stitches .

For my next card, I created a distress ink blended background with a custom stencil I created with just vellum and a die.  I love this technique!  Here I paired the mermaid and seahorse from Mermaids with a fish from Bubbles.

Thank you so much for stopping in and sharing part of your day with me.
Have a wonderful day!

Mermaids Week - Day 1

March 5, 2018

Hey, it's Caryn here with a (slightly sinister) creation featuring the Mermaids clear stamps and Elle-ments.  My wicked streak couldn't help but pair this cute, sweet-faced little mermaid with one of the hungry sharks from Hello Chum!  I don't think she realises what's about to happen but I'm definitely humming the JAWS theme right now!

I stamped and coloured the images with Copics and added some bling to the mermaid with Diamond Glaze and Avery Elle glitter on her hair.  To build my scene I used the Burst dies to create a window using wood-effect cardstock and added some blue vellum behind it so it gives the effect of looking through water.  I stamped a few images from Hello Chum (waves and fishes) onto the vellum and then adhered the shark slightly off-centre.  I die-cut some coral using the Coral Reef Elle-ments and made a small banner for the "Let's Do Lunch" sentiment.  

Supplies used:
Corral Reef Elle-ments

Banner Bits Week with Ashley

March 2, 2018

Hi Everyone! Ashley here on the blog today sharing Banner Bits and so much more!

This card started with the new amazing liquid watercolors that were just released. They are so pretty. I can't stop using them! I water colored the background and then a small strip of paper for the banner

Next, I stamped the sweet panda and balloon from Party Pals. These images were colored with Copics. I love mixing marker coloring with water colors. The two styles mix together so well. I finished the card by stamping the sentiment and adhering all of the pieces together.

Thanks for stopping by today!


Banner Bits Week - Card & Video With Heather

March 1, 2018

Hey everyone!  It's Heather here.

YAY!  Have you been enjoying Banner Bits this week?  I know I'm a little biased - but I absolutely am obsessed with Banner Bits.  To me, it's THE perfect banner and the set is jam packed with fantastic sentiments in a really beautiful and quite universal font.  

For my card, I decided to pair my banner with the Critter Crew

I've even got a video for how I pulled this card together.  I also go into detail on some great tips for how you can curve these straight sentiments to fit inside the banner.

So much fun!  I love this card and I'm pretty sure I'll need a few more of these ready to give out. 

Thank you so much for stopping in and sharing part of your day with me.

Have a wonderful day!
