Rawr Week - Day 4

April 30, 2020

Hello everyone! It's Heather here. Today I'm here with a card using the new dinosaur Rawr stamp set.
For my card, I started with patterned paper card front from the Holiday collection paper pack. I added a Starry Scene die cut using the Spring Collection paper pad

To assemble my card, I stamped, colored in and die cut the dinosaur, party hat, leaves from Rawr. Then, I stamped and die cut the banner from Banner Bits and added a sentiment. Finally I assembled it all together with dimensional adhesive. 

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

Rawr Week - Day 3

April 29, 2020

Hello!  Amy here today with a card that is is just Dino-Mite!  Do you find it difficult to put a background together for critter stamps?  I have one technique that is so easy and gives a wow to the background.....repeated stamped with emboss resist.


I started with a white panel of card stock.  Using Versamark resist ink, I repeatedly stamped the bold 'RAWR' from the Rawr stamp set.  This panel was heat embossed with Avery Elle Pure White Embossing Powder.  Using Broken China, Shabby Shutters, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks to blend over the embossed panel, the panel was then buffed with a paper towel to remove any excess ink on the embossing.  This leaves a crisp white background!

Using a standard circle die, the circle was die cut from a trimmed white panel.  This created the perfect "sky" and "grass" (made from the embossed background) for my Copic colored dinosaur.  A white heat embossed sentiment strip was added to ground my dinosaur.  The stars (from Peek-A-Boo Fair) were stamped in black ink to tie in with the party hat.  The pierced clouds (from Cloud Mat Elle-ments) and dinosaur were adhered using foam adhesive.

Rawr Week - Day 2

April 28, 2020

Hello friends,

Katie here with a card featuring the adorable and fierce dinosaurs from the Rawr Clear Stamp set.

These dino pals are ready to celebrate, so I set the scene using Avery Elle's Leafy Frame Elle-ments die. I die cut the frame twice, once from green card stock and the second time from patterned paper. I inverted the green card stock frame before glueing the layers together for some added interest and dimension.

I stamped and colored the dinosaurs and party hats with Copic Markers and die cut them with the coordinating Elle-ments dies. I adhered the die cut frame and dinos to a panel of watercolor card stock blended with a bit of Distress Oxide ink around the edges.

For the sentiment, I borrowed the frame from the Peek-A-Boo Jungle stamp set. I stamped the banner and sentiment on black card stock with Versamark ink before heat embossing with white embossing
powder. I die cut the banner and added it to the card.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a dino-mite day! 

Rawr Week - Day 1

April 27, 2020

Hi there!

Elena here, with a dino-riffic birthday card (too much? yeah. sorry.)

I had so much fun putting this card together. I used a few new sets to create this card. The dinos are from Rawr, the speech bubble is from Speech Bubbles, and the party stuff is from Sweet Swines. I love how it all works together so well!

Once I had all of my images die-cut and colored, it was a simple thing to layer them onto a piece of starry sky ephemera (from the Fairy Ephemera pack) and then onto a piece of striped patterned paper (from The Spring Collection Paper Pad.)

To finish things off, I used a white gel pen to add polka dots to the orange balloons, and to give the images some highlighting. I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Everyone! I'm excited to share Peek a Boo Fair!

This set is so much fun! To create my card I started by lightly water coloring the background. Next, I stamped the ferris wheel, unicorn and flags from Peek a Boo Fair.    

Then I stamped the monkey and panda from Peek a Boo Pals. I colored and die cut all of the images. Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment from Speech Bubbles. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Peek-A-Boo Fair Week - Day 3

April 22, 2020

Hello! Amy here with a scene from my childhood!  
I LOVED fair time when I was younger.  Bumper cars (and the ZIPPER ride) were my favorites!

I started making my background ink blending Scattered Straw, Spun Sugar, and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks.  Once done, this panel was die cut using the Hatch Mat Elle-ments.  Adding this just gives some interest to the background.  Plus, it reminds me of all the sparking above as the bumper cars sped across the floor!

I added two bumper cars, the unicorn from Peek-A-Boo Fair, and the panda from Peek-A-Boo Pals.  The cars were added with foam adhesive as well as the flags.  To add a little reality to the scene, the tiny spark stamp (from Peek-A-Boo Car) was added between the cars!  As a finishing touch, a sentiment was stamped onto a die cut speech bubble from Speech Bubble Elle-ments.


Peek-A-Boo Fair Week - Day 2

April 21, 2020

Hi friends,

Katie here with a Double Feature video. Two cards using the Peek-A-Boo Fair stamp set.  This set makes an adorable backdrop for the Peek-A-Boo pals. I just couldn't decide between bumper cars and ferris wheel, so I bought the extra ride ticket and made two cards!

I really love the "I miss bumping into you" sentiment paired with the bumper car images. I know many of us miss bumping into our special friends right now.

The dragon from the Peek-A-Boo Scary Pals joined the unicorn for a fun day at the fair. The dragon looks so festive in a party hat while the unicorn snacks on cotton candy.

I hope you will take a peek at my video to see how the cards came together!


Thanks for stopping by!

Peek-A-Boo Fair Week - Day 1

April 20, 2020

Hey there Avery Elle fans.  I hope everyone is managing to keep themselves safe and well and occupied with some fun activities?!  I've suddenly become a baker, interior decorator, garden designer to name but a few things, lol!

Of course I've also been finding some crafty time and this week have a card featuring the fabulous Peek-a-Boo Fair set.

I created an ink blended background and then stamped the ferris wheel image onto white card and die cut it.  I also stamped it onto one of the papers from the Spring Collection paper pad then fussy cut the "baskets" and pieced them onto the ferris wheel.  I used a white gel pen on the stars to make them pop.

I love this set - it's such a unique concept!


Sunflowers Inspiration - Day 3

April 17, 2020

Hi Everyone! Ashley here today sharing Sunflower stamps! This set is so cheerful! Let's take a look...

To create my card I stamped, colored and die cut two of the sunflower images from the set. Next, I heat embossed the wreath on craft card stock. Then I die cut the wonky circle from Constellation Scene dies to go behind the wreath. I finished the card with one of the sweet sentiments from the set. 

Thanks for stopping by!


Sunflowers Inspiration - Day 2

April 16, 2020

Hello!  Amy here with a bit of SUNSHINE for you.
  Being from Kansas, the Sunflowers stamp set was my favorite from this last release.  The fields of sunflowers are truly gorgeous during the late summer.

The sunflowers were Copic colored with:
petals: Y15, Y19, Y35, Y38
centers:  E42, E44, E89
leaves: G24, G46, G94

All the sunflowers and leaves were die cut using the coordinating Sunflowers Elle-ments.  They were added to a backdrop that was done with the Invitation Frame Elle-ments.  I die cut the frame and left it intact except for the middle where I backed the opening with a light blue cardstock.  The sunflowers were arranged and adhered.  For my sentiment, I pulled out an older but favorite set of mine.......Rainbows.  I thought this sentiment was perfect and had the best font for this card.

Sunflowers Inspiration - Day 1

April 15, 2020

Hey, it's Caryn here jumping in with a card using the Sunflowers stamps set.  I have a sister-in-law who LOVES sunflowers.  When I see one it always reminds me of her.  I thought as it was her birthday just a couple of weeks ago it would make the perfect card for her.

I started by die-cutting a panel from white woodgrain cardstock using the Double-Pierced Rectangles die set.  I then cut a strip from kraft cardstock and ran it through the Gemini Jnr using the same die so that the pierced dots would run along with the white panel.
I stamped my sentiment from the Beary Good Friends set onto the kraft panel and tied some twine around it.

I stamped, coloured and die-cut the sunflower image and some leaves and adhered them to the card using foam tape and then finished off with some clear drops from Ellen Hutson.

Hi Friends! Ashley here sharing Beary Good Friends. We all need some good friends right now, right?

To create my card I stamped, die cut and colored several critters from Beary Good Friends. I put a piece of blue striped paper from The Spring Collection Paper Pad on the card base and adhered the critters. I finished the card with a sentiment from Beary Good Friends and twine. 

Take care!
