Llamazing Week - Day 4

March 21, 2019




Hi Everyone! I'm excited to share my Llamazing card with you today! I'll be sharing a few tips and techniques I used to make this card too!

 First I started with a white card base and stamped the llama. I did a partial die cut, then trimmed from the card edge to the llama.

Next, I stamped and die cut the cactus and the fancy saddle then adhered them to the card. 


I wanted the sentiment to start on the front of the card and finish in the inside so I cut the sentiment in a few pieces. I used the speech bubble die cut from Peek a Boo Pets for the first part of the sentiment.


The second part of the sentiment went on a paper piece inside. I also put another llama with balloons and a party hat! I love this inside/outside card and I hope you do too!

Hello!  Amy here today sharing a 'llamazing' card with you!  These llamas are the cutest and there are several images in the set that you can use to embellish them.......you can even make a 'llama-corn'!  ☺

Llamazing

I created a sunset background with some ink blending of Dried Marigold and Mustard Seed Distress Inks and then die cut using the Ray Elle-ments.  I made my sun a bit darker using more of the Dried Marigold.  My images were Copic colored and die cut with the coordinating dies and were added over a white heat embossed sentiment strip of black cardstock.

Easter Chicks Week - Day 5

March 15, 2019



Hi Everyone! Today I'm excited to share the Easter Chicks stamp set along with Market Stand!

Let's take a peek...

 I started my card by stamping, die cutting and coloring the 3 cute chicks from Easter Chicks. I didn't really have a plan for them but I had fun stacking them and placing them on things. Finally, I settled on a Market Sand take over! :) The chicks seem to be made perfectly to go along with the Market Stand set. 

I stamped, die cut and colored the Market Stand and then added the lamb from Peek a Boo Pets. The finished touch was a few clouds from Photo Mat Dies!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey everyone! Heather here sharing my latest card using the new Easter Chicks stamp set.

These Easter Chicks are just too fun and it's such a cute little set.  I also love how they're totally versatile and work for way more than just Easter.

To create my card, I stamped and die cut each of the chicks and butterflies.  Then I colored them in and added some sweet gel pen accents.  Then I heat embossed and die cut the banner from Banner Bits. Finally, I die cut my layers using the new Quilted Frame cover plate die.

Such a sweet little grouping of chicks.

Easter Chicks Week - Day 3

March 13, 2019



Hello friends! 

Spring is in the air, and Easter is just around the corner.  I have a sweet card to share with you today featuring the adorable Easter Chicks stamp set.


To make the card, first I blended some Distress Oxide ink onto a panel of watercolor card stock and spattered the background with spray ink. I stamped the chicks, eggshell and butterflies using Avery Elle's dye ink in New Moon and colored the images using Copic makers.


I die cut the images using the coordinating Easter Chicks Elle-ments dies and arranged them onto the blended background.  I stamped the sentiment and the butterfly trails and added some polka dots to he eggshell using a white gel pen.  Finally, I framed the scene using the new Quilted Frames Elle-ments die and adhered the panel to a yellow A-2 notecard.

I hope these cute chicks brighten your day.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Easter Chicks Week - Day 2

March 12, 2019



Hi there!

Elena here with a card that uses the new Easter Chicks stamp set:


I started out by stamping the images from Easter Chicks: the 3 chicks, the broken egg shell, and the 2 butterflies. That's a lot of stuff all packed into one tiny set!


I gave the chicks a leafy canopy to stand under. I stamped the big oval wreath image from Loved And Admired, but chopped it off at the bottom. I really wanted the chicks to be able to stand on a flat surface.


I then stamped the Happy Easter greeting into a flag image (from an older, retired set called Band Camp - it's the flag that the marching turtle was holding, and I just cut him away.)

Once everything was assembled, I forgot that there was a perfectly good butterfly trail image in the stamp set (doh!) but I wanted the look so I added my own to the 2 butterflies using a black pen.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello!

It's Yainea here sharing a cute idea to create little bags to give your Easter treats to your loved ones. I'm featuring the adorable Easter Chicks stamp set.


I created a little scene using the stamps, coloring the images with alcohol markers and the background with ink and a blending tool. You can totally adhere the final circle to a card base and that's it you have a card :)


But this time I wanted to create something different so I used the Treat Topper die and created this easy treat bag that is just perfect for Easter or you just could change the sentiment and use it for a baby shower, too!

Thank you so much for your visit, have an amazing week!

Orchid Week - Day 4

March 7, 2019



Hi Everyone! Today I'm excited to share the new Orchid stamp set and matching dies. 


This card was so easy to create because the large orchid stamp quickly takes up space on the card front and becomes the star of the show! I stamped, die cut and colored the orchid. Then I adhered it to a water colored card base and stamped the card base. That's it! I love this beautiful stamp set and I know you will too!

Orchid Week - Day 3

Hello!  Amy here sharing a card using the beautiful Orchid stamp set.  
With the sentiments included, this set can be used for ANY occasion.

Orchid

I stamped the main orchid image with Black New Moon Dye Ink from Avery Elle.  Using Copics, the image was colored in adding in shading in places.  I wanted my image to be front and center.  To do this, I added my Copic colored and die cut image with foam adhesive over a background blended with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and a white Scalloped Mat Elle-Ments panel.  To finish, I added a white sentiment strip and some Wink of Stella on the blooms.

Orchid Week Card & Video - Day 1

March 4, 2019




Hey there Avery Elle fans.  Caryn here today with a card featuring the new Orchid stamp set along with some of my all-time favourite Avery Elle products.  I also wanted to see how the new Gemini Foil Press machine worked with the cover dies we have available and the result is stunning.  I have a little video to share showing how I created this card.  (Sincere apologies for the lack of voiceover - I have tonsilitis at the moment so was unable to record a video narration.  If anyone has any questions I'd be happy to answer them in the comments).




I started with some Ranger watercolour cardstock and used the Polka Plate cover die with gold foil in the foil press machine.  In the video you will see I made a sort of template using vellum to make sure the card is placed in the correct position.  I stole that top tip from Julie Ebersole!!  Once it was pressed with the foil I created a water coloured background over it using Avery Elle water colours in Cherry and Sugar Plum and set it aside to dry.



Meanwhile I stamped the Orchid images onto some more water colour card using Versamark and heat embossed them in gold embossing powder.  I coloured them using the water colours (Cherry for the petals, Celery for the leaves and Sea Glass for the pot) and then die cut them.





To diffuse the colours a little on the background piece I added a small panel of vellum then adhered the die cut pieces and finished with some iridescent sequins and a gold embossed happy birthday sentiment from the set.

Cotton Candy Week - Day 4



Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing a *sweet* card using the stamp set  Cotton Candy


To create my card I started by stamping the large cotton candy stamp. I ink blended the sweet treat and paper pieced the cone. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment. I love how this set allows you to customize the perfect sentiment. 

I finished the card with some patterned paper and twine. I absolutely love the navy and pink color combo.

Cotton Candy Week - Day 2

February 27, 2019


Hello friends,


Katie here with a card to share with you today featuring the Cotton Candy stamp set.  When I saw this stamp set, I wanted to figure out a way to make a card that actually looked like cotton candy (minus the sticky).




My solution was to use polyester fiber-fill or stuffing.  I sponged the fiber-fill with Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick before glueing the fluff to a stamped and colored image of the spool of cotton candy.  I adhered a second layer of card stock on top of the stamped image. Before adhering the two layers of card stock together, I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added a couple of the accent stars and circles.  I used both cotton candy outline dies to cut a border from white glitter card stock.




This card was so fun to make, and the fiber-fill really does look like cotton candy! 

By popular request, I made a video to show you how this card came together.  I hope you'll take a peek!

An Adorable Card by Yainea

February 26, 2019



Hello!

I't Yainea here today to share with you another card I made with the new products from the Avery Elle Spring release.

This time, I've combined Ray die with All of Us stamps to create a thank you card. I had fun playing with my inks to create the background, first I applied and blended the different ink colors and the I sprinkled some water on top to add texture. The cute row of bears was colored with alcohol markers.


I just love this Ray die! For this card I used it to create a sun with rays but it's also perfect to create attention spots on your cards!


I hope you feel inspired to something today! Thank you so much for stopping by, have a nice day!

Cotton Candy Week - Day 1

February 25, 2019



Hi everyone, this is Nicky with you today and I'm sharing a cheerful and delicious shaker card made using the Cotton Candy stamp set and coordinating Elle-ments.



My card started with me using StazOn White Pigment Ink to stamp the Cotton Candy image and sentiment onto acetate.  I used my Misti to do this so that it wouldn't slide around on the shiny surface and I could be sure of getting a nice crisp image stamped.  I set this to one side to dry for about 10 minutes.



Meanwhile I ink blended a panel with Distress Oxides in Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade and Cracked Pistachio.  I also took the smaller of the two Cotton Candy dies and die cut another panel of white cardstock.  With the acetate now dry I layered the die cut panel over the stamped image, securing it with my tape runner.  I then flipped over the panel and used extra thick dimensional foam tape to create a shaker unit and also the foam tape was added around the outside so that it was all stable and level.



I filled the space with my chosen shaker contents - a blend that I concocted myself and then sealed them in by backing the unit with the ink blended panel and in turn the entire shaker unit was adhered to a sturdy 110lb white cardstock base.

Card complete!  I hope you enjoyed it and are feeling inspired.  See you next time I have an Avery Elle card to share.

Peek A Boo Pets Week - Day 5

February 22, 2019



Hey everyone! Heather Campbell here. I'm so thrilled to be here today because I get to share one of my favorite cards I've ever made.
I'm having so much fun with the Peek-a-Boo series and these Peek-a-Boo Pets are just too much fun. 

To create my card, I stamped and die cut the pig, sheep, cow and chick (omg, that chick!!!) and their coordinating feet/wings.  I also stamped and die cut the sentiment bubbles and stars.  I colored them in and set them aside.  To work on the card base, I ink blended a background and then adhered some clouds from Photo Mat.  I used the Oval Burst die to create a mat and then just popped the images behind it.   

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