Party Animals and Hats!


Hello!  I have a few cards to share using Avery Elle stamps and coordinating dies.  Since I was on vacation last week, I am catching up with 2 cards today!

This first card uses the Hats Off stamps and Hats Off Elle-ments dies.  There are all sorts of uses for this set but I will need a Father's Day card in the coming months, so I thought I'd get a head start!  I started by using the large die from the Finished Frames Elle-ments and diecutting a rectangle out of the middle to create the frame.  I also diecut some Pierced Clouds Elle-ments to add to my little scene.  The piercing on the clouds adds just the best little details!!  All the arms and hats were colored with Copics and adhered with foam adhesive.

My second card uses the ADORABLE new set called More Party Animals and More Party Animals Elle-ments.  If you liked the mini Party Animal set, you will love this set with more possibilities!  

I thought it would be fun to use this WHOLE set.  To do this, I left all the stamps on the acetate sheet they came on except I removed a few from the lower right corner.  To this sheet of stamps, I coated the remaining stamps with Versamark so I could white heat emboss the images onto black cardstock.  After stamping with Versamark, I positioned a piece of trimmed black cardstock over the stamps and rubbed which transferred the Versamark to my black cardstock so I could white heat emboss.  I was going for a fun COLORFUL card with these images, so I stamped/diecut the balloon animals out and colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  Gosh I LOVE these markers!  As a final touch, I added my balloon animals with foam adhesive and applied lots of clear Wink of Stella for shimmer!

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

I just love how your beautiful creations make me look twice (or more) at stamp sets not currently in my stash! I LOVE your Hats Off card - perfect for a special Dad. And the balloon images/colouring on the black BG using More Party Animals is definitely eye-catching!
