Tons of Hearts Frame Week - Day 3

January 16, 2019




Hello!  Tis the season for LOVE and friendship.  Amy here with a clean and simple card using some ink blending and the amazing Tons of Hearts Frame Elle-ments.

Tons of Hearts

 I've ink blended a panel and then die cut using the Tons of Hearts Frame Elle-ments.   For a different look, the background was left with all the white hearts from my notecard!  To tie in the white from my notecard, I die cut the sentiment dies 'Happy Valentine's Day' from a white Double Pierced Circles Elle-ments.  When layered over the ink blended panel, the colors show through the sentiment!  As a finishing touch, matching gems to each color were added.

Tons of Hearts Frame Week - Day 2

January 15, 2019



Hello!

It's Yainea here today with another Valentine's themed card featuring the Tons of Hearts Frame Die. I paired it with the Cool Beans set because what says love better than coffee? ;)



So, I started with a pink base, sprinkling some different shades of pink ink on top to give it some texture. Then I die cut two pieces out of Tons of Hearts Frame Die, using one of the Double Pierced Circles Elle-ments dies on the center to create a hole. I adhered them together, and then on the card base, placeing a bow of twine around one of the sides.

Finally I stamped, colored and die cut the image, stamped the sentiment on the card base and adhered the coffee vase with dimensional adhesive. As a little final touch I placed one of my wooden hearts on top.

I hope you like it! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Tons Of Hearts Week - Day 1



Hey there.  Caryn here today sharing a cute card I made using the gorgeous Tons of Hearts Frame die.  One of my favourites from the Winter 2018 release is the Stuck on You set so I couldn't help but grab these guys for this card.  I started with a 4" square card so it's just the right size for the Lots of Hearts die cut which I cut from red cardstock and adhered to the front.



I used a circle die cut that I had left over from a previous card using the Horizontal Stripes die and blended some Lemon Grass (my favourite Avery Elle Pigment ink colour by the way!) around the edge.  I stamped the cute sentiment in black and then placed the cacti that I stamped, die cut and coloured with Copics on to the front with pop up foam tape.



To finish I added a wee bit of shine to the flowers on the cacti using glossy accents.

And Then Week - Day 5

January 11, 2019



Hi Everyone! It's Ashley here today. Sharing the amazing sentiment stamp set And Then.

Although I'm featuring this stamp set today, I've used it several times this release! It's a winner!


I always enjoy my creative time after the holidays. The season right after the holidays brings freshness and openness to creativity. Today I went a little crazy and made a Polaroid panda card. :) 

I started by blending stripes with Distress Ink. Next I stamped the sentiment from And Then. I finished the sentiment by heat embossing "heart happy" on top of the inked sentiment slightly offset. 

I created the Polaroid camera from a piece of card stock with rounded edges. The Simple Sentiment Dies were the perfect fit to make the slot opening. 


I added a little fun with the panda bears from Party Pals. The card was finished with a few hearts from Otterly Fantastic.

Thanks for stopping by!

And Then Week - Day 4

January 10, 2019



Hey all!  Heather here.
Today I've got a fun card using the amazing new And Then sentiment stamp set.


To create my card, I decided to have some fun with the sentiment and create a really cool splash of color behind it. To do this, I followed a few easy steps.


 First, I positioned my stamp on my MISTI and then inked the stamp with a few colors of water reactive ink (distress inks). 


Next, I spritzed the inked up stamp with water.


Quickly, I stamped the spritzed stamp onto my card.


Finally, once it was dry, I stamped the sentiment in black ink onto the card and ta-da done!  I love the look of this.  So fun too! 

Once I had the sentiment assembled, I positioned a few Peek-a-Boo Pals behind the largest Wonky Scallops frame die to finish my card.  
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
XO, 
Heather 

And Then Week Day 3

January 9, 2019



Hello friends,

Katie here with a quick and cute little card to share with you featuring the And Then stamp set.  And Then is a wonderful sentiment set.  It's perfect for your all the loves in your life, from family and significant others to kiddos and special friends.

I adore the "You make my Heart Happy" sentiment and it takes center stage on the Tons of Hearts Frame Elle-ments die.  I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed it with Avery Elle's clear embossing powder.



I backed the hearts frame die that with a panel of blended Distress Oxide inks (Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, and Wilted Violet).  I attached the panel to a white notecard trimmed down to 4.25" square.




Supplies: 



I hope this little card made your heart happy!  It makes my heart happy that you shared part of your day with Avery Elle!  Thanks for stopping by!

And Then Week Day 2

January 8, 2019



Hi there!

Elena here with a card featuring the sweet hand-lettered set, And Then. I love every sentiment in the set, it was hard to choose just one for this card!



I stamped the sentiment onto a sheet of pink paper - I really wanted to highlight that sentiment!  I colored a cat couple, from Party Pals, in different shades of grey. I added little stripes to each kitty in a darker grey.  Then, I cut a Pierced Clouds layer for them to hang out on, and framed everything out using the Horizontal Stripes cover-plate.




When everything was assembled, I was regretting my decision to stamp the sentiment in a black ink. I wish I would have embossed it in white! To lighten up the pink layer a bit, I drew in some dreamy dots using a white gel pen. I thought that helped a bit.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

♥.


And Then With Nicky

January 7, 2019



Hello everybody!  This is Nicky with you today and I'm sharing a card using the new And Then  sentiment stamp set from the most recent Avery Elle release.


Since the sentiments in this set are slightly chunky/oversized I decided I'd do a larger than normal card and I'm pretty much addicted to 'Slimline' cards right now.  The finished dimensions are 3 1/2" x 8 1/2", so cut an A4 panel of cardstock at 7 inches then score and fold in half (4 bar).  My panel was cut from the remainder of the sheet and is sized 3.2" x 8.2".  These cards fit a standard 'slimline' envelope which is easily found in online searches.



I ink blended my panel using Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon.  I then took a couple of different stencils that I had and used different sized circles from each, moving it about and ink blending using White Pigment Ink to create a bubbly or bokeh affect.  I stamped the sentiment with black archival ink and dotted in a few spots using a Uni-Ball Signo white gel pen.



On Bristol Smooth cardstock I stamped my images from Swans and watercolour painted them using Kuretake Zigs.  I fussy cut the images out and adhered them using foam tape for dimension.  I backed the panel with white craft foam and stuck it to the card base.



The final touch was to draw the ripples of water around the swans again using the Uniball Signo White gel pen.

Card complete!  Thanks for stopping by the Avery Elle blog today, I'll see you next time .......

A Gorgeous Card!

Hi Everyone! Happy New Year! Ashley here today sharing some sweet stamps to start off the new year. I've seen so many fun tropical family vacation pictures lately and they inspired me to make this card. 


I started the card by water coloring a soft background. It includes a wave, sun and a green tropical canopy. Next, I heat embossed Blooming and water colored it in the same soft colors. 

Then I stamped, die cut and colored birds from Toucan Party I placed them all over their colorful perch. I added a sentiment from Banner Bits. Finally I added a Wonky 3D Bow. This was a last minute addition and I love it!


Thanks for joining me today!

And Then With Amy

January 2, 2019



Hello!  Amy K. here sharing a clean and simple Valentine card.  I know sometimes I often try to figure out how to make a sentiment set the star of the show because I like it that much.  Check out my card today.

And then

I began by die cutting the Embellished Heart Elle-ments out of some off red carstock.  I did this off center for interest.  By using the template I made, I was able to stamp the sentiment, from And Then, multiple times to fill the "heart".  I used Avery Elle Raspberry Pigment Ink and my Misti.  Once done, I adhered my heart die cut panel and added some Cherry Hemp Twine.

TIP:  try stamping your sentiment to fill a large die cut space.  Gives the sentiment a place to shine!

Stuck On You with Nicky

January 1, 2019



Hello, it's Nicky back with you today and Happy New Year to each and every one of you!  My first card of 2019 features the new Stuck On You mini stamp set with coordinating dies.  Yes, it's time to think about Valentine's Day!!!!



My background was created by ink blending Distress Inks in Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled glass using my Clarity Stencil Brushes onto white cardstock.  I applied this blended panel to my 110lb white cardstock base.  I die cut the Postage Stamp frame and the Photo Mat die from more white cardstock.  The frame was applied with foam tape and then with the Photo Mat I ink blended certain portions of it again using Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass so that everything would tone with the background.



I reassembled the Photo Mat scene taping it together on the reverse then adding more foam tape and sticking it down at a playful angle.  The speech bubble is part of the Photo Mat die, so I die cut it and stamped my sentiment with Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil.  This too was applied with foam tape.



On Bristol Smooth cardstock I stamped my two cactus images again with the archival ink.  They were watercolour painted using my Kuretake Zigs then highlighted with a Uni-Ball Signo white gel pen and applied with foam tape.

The finishing touch was the application of some toning sequins.   Card complete!

Happy crafting everybody and all good things in 2019 for you and yours!
