Avery Elle / Winter Wonderland Wonders

Winter Wonderland Wonders

Hello!  I am here with a layered Christmas shaker card that is full of glittery fun!
It was time to get out my coarse "chunky" Martha Stewart glitter for a winter wonderland scene.

Using the Winter Wonderland Wonders stamp set and coordinating Winter Wonderland Wonders Elle-ments, I stamped, Copic colored, and die cut my main images.  For my birch tree, I actually stamped it onto some light gray cardstock and did some no line coloring to make it appear like a birch tree.  It's hard to see but I did create layers of snow banks inside my shaker card using the Picket Fence Elle-ments.  My shaker card was created with the help of the Sweet Scallops Elle-ments.

Little extras were adding the white dots to my images using a white pigment pen.  It gives that perfect little touch!

SugarPea Designs / Arrow Cover Plate

Hello!  I am here with a card that is not "fall" related.  Even though I am preparing my fall decor here and the leaves are starting to turn, I am not ready!  My card definitely screams sunshine!!

I adore the new SugarCut Arrow Cover Plate.  It cuts AND embosses!  I created a panel out of white cardstock because I wanted to showcase some of the new Spots & Stripes Brights Pattern Paper Collection.  


I trimmed off strips of each color of the rainbow of the polka dot paper and added them to a top folding notecard.  My white panel cut with the Arrow Cover Plate was added over the top with foam adhesive.  For my sentiment, I added a wide strip of vellum and a black SugarCut You along with a supporting sentiment from Sweet Sentiments, You.  As a final touch, I added enamel dots in coordinating colors!

TIP:  My photo was taken with one of the new Heartthrob Envelopes that is available now at SugarPea Designs!

CZ Designs / STAMPtember

CZ Designs

Hello!  Did you know STAMPtember is now in full swing over at Simon Says Stamp?  This whole month there are new products released and one of the most fun are the collaborations they do with other companies! 

I am so honored to have been sent this FUN "Hollo-Ween" set from CZ Designs and Simon Says Stamp for STAMPtember!  If you do not follow CZ Designs on Instagram, you need to!  You can't help but smile with her IG stories!  

I created a fun background that left my hands very messy but it was fun to see the colors blend together!   Using Blueprint Sketch, Seedless Preserves, Black Soot, Mustard Seed, and Crushed Olive Distress Inks, I blended them together onto a piece of smooth watercolor paper.  They blended beautifully!!!  I then zapped my panel with my heat tool because I was embossing next.  I used an aniti-static powder bag to prep my panel before white heat embossing the ghosts and sentiments.  When I was done, I went back over my ghosts with Black Soot Distress Ink which made them a gray color!  As a last touch, I added some chunky black gems!

Reverse Confetti / SFYTT


Hello!  I am here sharing a card using the current SFYTT (Sketch For You to Try) over at the Reverse Confetti blog.  Check out the SFYTT post......HERE for all the details!

Since it's been a rough week here at my house, I thought I'd share my take on the SFYTT.  I used the Just Brew It stamp set, just for the #PSL kinda day!  I paired it up with the newest 6x6 paper pad, Every Little Bit.  I love the patterns in this paper pad as they truly work so well together especially for this month's SFYTT.  My #PSL image was stamped in Reverse Confetti's Rust ink and I also carried that color over to the cardstock strip separating the patterns in the sketch.  To ground my image, I layered it over one of the smaller Pierced Round Top Layers and added a black strip at the bottom.  Matching enamel dots finished the sketch!


Now the best part is.......there is always a winner every month!  Here are the details:

The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of each month.
Check out the SFYTT post......HERE.

So let's see your Reverse Confetti creations this still have time to get it done!

I'm sharing this for the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop that started yesterday!  Nothing says fall like a #PSL!

Pretty Pink Posh / STAMPtember

Damask Greetings

Hello!  Did you know STAMPtember is now in full swing over at Simon Says Stamp?  This whole month there are new products released and one of the most fun are the collaborations they do with other companies! 

I am sharing the collaboration between Pretty Pink Posh and Simon Says Stamp with the new stamp set called Damask Greetings.

I've used ONE image from this stamp set to stamp an entire panel in a light pink pigment ink from Fresh Ink.  To  make this easier, I've used some grid cardstock I've had in my stash for years but Simon Says Stamp now has a background stamp so you can stamp your own!  My sentiment was heat embossed onto a vellum banner from Stitched Labels 1 and sewn on using my sewing machine.

Pretty Pink Posh / Fall Product Release Hop

Trick or Treat Friends

Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh blog hop celebrating the new September "fall" release!  There are so many new adorable images for the fall/winter!

I thought I would start sharing the first holiday of the fall:  Halloween.  This is my favorite holiday!  I love the trick or treating, jack 'o lanterns, fall breeze, and costumes.  Soon, I won't have kiddos that do this any more!  

Since carving jack 'o lanterns is one of "my" things to do every year, I thought I would use the cute little pumpkin stamps from Trick or Treat Friends.  I stamped the pumpkin images randomly with Versafine Onyx Black onto a panel of Bristol Smooth Watercolor paper and clear heat embossed the images.  I also did the same for the bat (from Halloween Friends) and the mini star (from Birdie Notes) to create my own custom background paper!  I watercolored my images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a waterbrush.  I loosely colored the background (very messy nothing fancy) with watered down Distress Oxide in Broken China.  After it was completely dry, I added it to a white top folding notecard but pulling up the edges for a fun effect.  My sentiment "Boo!" (from Halloween Friends) was stamped with Staz-On black onto vellum that was die cut using the new Stacked Edges 1 Dies.

Now, I'm going to switch gears (aka holidays) and share a card made with the uber adorable set called Angel Friends.  I started this card with watercoloring my 2 angel images, diecutting, and setting aside.  I die cut the tag from Stitched Duo 1 Dies and blended a Broken China background, spritzed with water, and once dry, added some Prisma Glitter to dots of liquid glue to look like glistening snow.  Over the top of all this, I white heat embossed snowflakes (from Winter Wonderland).

Angel Friends 

For the background on my notecard, I simply made 2 passes of the scalloped die from the new die set Stacked Edges 1 and layered them onto the notecard.  I added liquid glue to the scallop edges and more Prisma Glitter.  My images were added with foam adhesive to my tag and added the tag to my white notecard wth foam adhesive.  As a final touch, I added some new Marshallow Confetti Mix.

Angel Friends2


There are a total of 4--$25 gift certificates up for grabs for the hop - 2 for each day of the hop. Winners will be picked randomly from comments left along the hop - so make sure and leave lots of love along the way as you hop along! All comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on September 19, 2017 - and winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog.

Catherine Pooler Designs / CAS(E) this Sketch!


Hello and Welcome!  I am sharing a card made with a brand new stamp set from Lydia Evans for Catherine Pooler Designs called Tilly's Garden.  

With this floral stamp set, I could literally create tons of different backgrounds using all the stamps from this set!  I've stamped all my blooms using Catherine Pooler Dye Inks in Tiara, Tiki Torch, Bellini (MY FAVORITE COLOR!), Orange Twist, Sweet Sixteen, Flirty Fuchsia, It's a Girl, Party Dress, Garden Party, Rockin' Red, and Midnight.  I added the new Hello Die done in black cardstock to the bottom edge of my floral panel.  Everything was adhered to a notecard that was stamped with the chevron border from Yay! Stripes.  
**There is a sneaky peek at one of the new blocks that will be available in the store too!


I also used the newest sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! where I am this week's guest as a past winner!  Here's the sketch for this week!  Thanks Chrissy for having me back!
