Avery Elle / Ranunculus

Hello friends!  

I am here with probably my most favorite Avery Elle set to date......the Ranunculus.  This set is so absolutely perfect for any type of card!


Layering stamps are one of my favorite things to use!  Using colors of pinks and oranges, the flowers were done with FOUR layers to give them stamped dimension.  The leaf bunches were all done with THREE layers of stamping.  Once die cut, they were arranged over a stacked frame made with the Pierced Ray Frame Elle-ments.  This die set has two extra die cut words that make it so versatile!  I've done the inner frame and the sentiment 'congrats' in gold cardstock.  Gold pearls were added as finishing touches to match the frame and sentiment.

Avery Elle / Hoot Hoot Hooray

Hi everyone!  

I am here with a birthday card using Hoot Hoot Hooray from Avery Elle!  The owl holding the banner is so cute.  

***SHOP Avery Elle HERE***

The background was made by ink blending Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink over a panel of cardstock.  The background was spritzed with water droplets and once dry, sheer shimmer spray was spritzed over the top.  I love the look this spray gives to a background!  From this background, the Oval Scene Elle-ments was die cut into it discarding the "frame" that the die creates.

Each of the images was Copic colored with some primary colors and die cut.  The images were then added with foam adhesive to create dimension for the scene.  Randomly placed die cut clouds, from Oval Scene Elle-ments, were added to complete my scene!


Thanks for sharing a part of your day here!

Reverse Confetti / June Blog Hop

June Blog Hop2

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop!  
Go check out the Reverse Confetti blog for all the details of this hop and for a full list of inspiration and information.  

I couldn't resist using the gorgeous Roses stamp set again along with some more emboss resist!  This technique is super easy and you can blend to your hearts content!

June Blog Hop

My roses are a peachy pink color.  I added bits of color with a small blender brush to parts of the roses and leaves.  I love the two toned leaves!  The spray of roses was die cut several times, layered together, and added to a Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel done in ivory cardstock.  The panel was added with foam dimension and embellished with ivory gems.

Avery Elle / Fabulous


I am sharing a project using the new FABULOUS stamps, dies, and shapes dies.  I used the nesting hearts for my card but you could adapt and use the rainbow or apple shape too!

Using the heart shape die, the heart was die cut from pink, peach, yellow, and gold glitter cardstock.  After layering them back together interchanging layers, they were picked up with Press 'n Seal and added to a white notecard with foam adhesive.  A few other glitter hearts and embellishments were added.  A frame from Pierced Birthday Frame Elle-ments done in white cardstock was added with a double layer of foam adhesive.  The sentiment, from Fabulous, was gold heat embossed onto white cardstock along with a supporting sentiment.  To finish, the sentiments were added over the center heart with foam adhesive.

Pinkfresh Studio / May 2022 Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

Painted Daisies2

Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio May Release!  
I am so excited to share my projects using a variety of products from the release.  There are so many new beautiful florals that have coordinating stencils and dies as well as some stand alone products too!

For all release information please start from the Pinkfresh Studio Blog.

  My first card uses the Painted Daises stencil and die (there is also a coordinating stamp).  

After stenciling in the one piece Painted Daisies image using the stencils, the image was die cut and then cut in half.  This was set aside to work on the card base.  The card base was made using the Stained Glass Die and yes, I popped all those pieces up with foam adhesive!  Once done, the Painted Daisies were added with one image at the top and one image at the bottom.  I love the way this breaks up a large image!!!  Now, there is a new sentiment suite in town......Scripted Sentiments which includes a stamp set, die, and hot foil plate!  For my sentiment, I hot foiled gold onto black cardstock for a bold look!  As finishing touches, gold pearls were added to tie in the foiled sentiment.

For my second card, I've used the Stained Glass Hot Foil Plate along with the coordinating stencils for a soft background.

I added in a shaker element for this other busy background.  This was created using the Nested Circle Hot Foil Plates and the coordinating Nested Circles Dies.  Clear flat sequins were added for shine inside the shaker.  To finish the card, a reversed foiled sentiment from Scripted Sentiments was added over Curvy Foilage Die done in heavy vellum.  This card would be perfect for a wedding card!

Stained Glass3


My last card uses the new beautiful Grant Yourself Grace.  This set is perfect for building your own floral sprays since all the florals are separate.  To color the blooms, they were done using Pinkfresh Inks over the coordinating stencil and then die cut.  


To create my background, the Arched Backdrop Hot Foil Plate was used with gold foil and added with foam adhesive.  The interior was done using the Intricate Stitched Ovals Plate for a bit of texture.  Here is where the fun part comes in, arranging the florals!  Once I had them where I wanted them, I used Press 'n Seal to secure them to add glue to the back.  Some florals were added using foam adhesive and a tiny bit of Curvy Foilage Die done in a light vellum were tucked in places.  Another foiled sentiment from Scripted Sentiments was added along with some gold gems to finish this!

Avery Elle / Summer Release / Blog Hop

Funny Faces2

The Summer 2022 Avery Elle Release is finally here!!  
We have an amazing blog hop full of inspiration today and we are so glad that you are here. 

For a summary of all of our new products that are available for purchase right now check out this section in our store .  We will be showcasing projects using our new sets starting today and will continue to show them throughout the next few months.  

 I had fun creating this punny card using the new Funny Faces stamps and Elle-ments Dies.

Isn't this set adorable??!  I decided to go with lemons as it reminds me of sunshine and summer!  The lemons were inked up first with a light shade of yellow ink.  To add the gradient, darker shades were stippled onto the stamp and then stamped over the top.  This technique was used to both the lemons and the leaves.  There are lots of cute faces to add and here I decided to make it a cute 'love' card.

The background was created using the Pierced Birthday Frame Elle-ments.  The frame and scallop edge were added with foam adhesive and the inside panel was stamped with the flowers from the set and embellished with tiny, yellow gems.  The lemon arrangement was added with foam adhesive along with 'you're simply the zest' sentiment!

Join us for the Blog Hop for lots of inspiration using the new collection!
