Monsters and snow?


Monsters2 

Hello!  I'm sharing some cards for my first official post for the Avery Elle blog!  If you have NOT checked out the new Fall release that happened last week.......what are you waiting for??  Go check it all out HERE.

My first card uses this ADORABLE set called Monsters and of course it has matching dies!  This set was designed by my VERY talented friend, Heather Campbell.  What this set offers is versatility!  There are elements to make it a fall and elements to make it a birthday card!  

Since Halloween is coming up next month, I used Monsters for a cute Halloween card.  To create my card, I used the Wonky Stitches Die (LOVE!) on both my layers.  The purple pattern paper is from the Jewel Collection Pattern Paper.  I stamped and diecut all my images which were colored with Copics.  To add some shading to my white panel, I sponged some Silver Fox Ink over the bottom edge and added my little diecut images with some foam adhesive.

Dashing2

My second card uses this small 3x4 stamp set called Dashing.  This image totally takes me back to when I first saw National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation in the theaters WHEN I WAS A KID.  Yes, I'm telling my age!  haha  I thought it would be cute to make the card driving through the snow like in the movie!

To make my card, I used the Sweet Scallops Elle-ments to diecut my "frame" for my shaker of "snow".  For my "hills", I've used the new Snow Caps Elle-ments.  My sentiment was stanped on the inside of my shaker before I added all that snowy glitter from Martha Stewart.  My car/tree image was colored all with Copics and added to the top of my shaker element.

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

Great release! Love all of your cards, Amy! I enjoy the white space on your cards and how unique they all are even with your CAS style! These stamps are quite fun, from the monster to the fast car with pine tree. LOL Thanks, Paulette S.
