Avery Elle / Peek-A-Boo Window

I am here today with a fun Peek-A-Boo Window card!  I love this set as it reminds me of my sweet dog and cat sitting at the window looking out!

I created the background by ink blending some Broken China Distress Ink onto a top folding card.  I added a die cut Starburst Oval Elle-ments in red.  The window once die cut out fits perfectly where the oval was!  By adding in two sentiment banners from Shout it Out, the rest of the oval was covered!  A fun sky full of stars and bursts like a real celebration!  To finish, I added in my sweet dog and cat!

Avery Elle / Dino-Mite Day


Amy here today with a Dino-Mite card to share with you!  This set, Dino-Mite Day, is adorable and can be used in so many different ways and colors!  You can go with fun, whimsical or more traditional.  I did a mixture of both!  

I started with using a window stencil (with Broken China Distress Ink) from my stash so I could create mini "scenes" for my dinosaurs.  The dinosaurs were all Copic colored, die cut, and added to the mini scenes with foam adhesive.  Each one has white pigment pen details.  The last detail was a mini sentiment strip added to one of the scenes with foam adhesive.

Avery Elle / Spread Magic

Hi Avery Elle fans!
I here today with to spread a bit of "magic" with you using Avery Elle!

I have a clean and simple card using the mini set, Spread Magic.  I started by masking off and ink blending a yellow circle shadow where the unicorn would be highlighted.  Using some 1/4" strips of cardstock in pastel colors, these were layered below the yellow shadow.  The unicorn was simply colored with coordinating Copic markers and a bit of N1 marker for some shadows.  This mini set has SIX sentiments to choose from.  Be Extraordinary just made sense with these colors!  To embellish, the mini stars from the set were stamped in black in and tiny black dots were added with a fine tip Sharpie.

Avery Elle / Best Day

I'm here today with a birthday card and a fun "fold" technique for your card too using some Avery Elle products!

****Shop for Avery Elle HERE****

Best Day2

There are four adorable critters in the Best Day set so I had to color them all up and use them for my card!  Each one was Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating dies.  I set these aside to begin on the background of my card.

Best Day

I started with a piece of white cardstock measuring 4 1/4" X 11" and then scored it at 2 3/4" from each end.  Such a fun twist on the traditional A2 card!  For the blue panel, I die cut a stitched border using Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments and cut it in half.  This makes the perfect backdrop for the birthday critters!  The "It's Party Time" stamp from, Guess What?, was stamped at the bottom of each side to "ground" the critters.  Each critter was added with foam adhesive and to keep the card closed, the flag "pole" is tucked in behind the zebras face.  Tiny stars were stamped randomly across the scene and to finish, another sentiment from Best Day was stamped on the inside of the card.
