Avery Elle / Oh Snap

Hello!  I'm here with a Hooray!  Let's celebrate a birthday!!! 

***Shop here for Avery Elle****

Oh Snap

I've paired the adorable mini stamp set, Oh Snap,  with the new HOORAY Elle-ments for a simple birthday card.  Spun Sugar Distress Ink was blended in the center of a white notecard.  The Star Frame Elle-ments was die cut from light pink cardstock and layered over the ink blended background.  This panel was die cut using the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments.

The word HOORAY was ink blended with Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Inks and was added to the die cut stitched panel just above a 1/8" strip of black cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink below.  The alligator was Copic colored, die cut, and added to the Star Frame with foam adhesive.  To finish, a few tiny clear gems were added randomly to the stars on the Star Frame.

Avery Elle / Luau Party

Hello!  I am here with some tropical fun!  
Creating a scene can sometimes be hard.  I've created a simple background using strips of cardstock and an ink blended panel to create a festive backdrop for my Luau Party critters!

Tip:  Use those cardstock scraps and cut 1/4" strips in the color palette of your choice over an ink blended background.  Distress Oxide inks work well with Bristol smooth cardstock along with splatters of the same color!

Using the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments, the ink blended panel (done with Salvaged Patina) was die cut along with the stitched sentiment banner.  These little Luau critters were Copic colored and added with foam adhesive over the strips of cardstock which serve to "ground" the scene.

Reverse Confetti / Stock Your Stash: Hello

Hello!  I am sharing a Hello with you all!  This month's Stock Your Stash over at Reverse Confetti is all about 'Hellos'.  


Simply put, Hello is one of the most simple things you can say to someone to make their day shine just a little.  This card uses the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts as border layers for my card using Flamingo and Piggy Bank Cardstock.  The HELLO word was die cut using the Letter Cuts Confetti Cuts.  The bottoms of the letters were darkened by blending Flamingo Dye Ink over them.  Two Copic colored floral sprays, from Beautiful Balloons, were added with foam adhesive to the corners of the small frame along with some white gems.

Reverse Confetti / Happy for you!

Happy for You2

Hello!  I am sharing some cuteness with the new set, Punny Party.  
Who wouldn't want to receive this cute kitty card full of color?  This is perfect for just about any reason!

Using the Happy Confetti Cuts, each letter was die cut using Reverse Confetti Cardstock colors (Salsa, Tangerine, Sunshine, Lime Green, Iced Aqua) and layered over black cardstock.  The Happy die cut was added with dimensional adhesive over a panel of polka dot paper from Cue the Confetti 6x6 Paper Pad.  A supporting sentiment, from Hooray, was added with foam adhesive.  To add the cuteness, the kitten holding the ice cream (colored with Copics) was added above the Happy die cut.  To finish, a few black gems were added to tie in with all the black details on the card.

Happy for You

Avery Elle / Inside Birthday Greetings

Hello!  I have a floral birthday card using the new Inside Birthday Greetings stamps from Avery Elle.  

***Shop here for Avery Elle****

Inside Birthday Greetings

I have to admit......I rarely stamp on the inside of my cards.  I wanted to show that you don't have to use these stamps on the inside of your cards!  I used one of the greetings and by masking a portion of the greeting, I was able to stamp it at the bottom of the banner die from Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments

The stitched layer in the background was stamped using a tone on tone look using the florals from Sending Flowers.  Additionally, several of the flowers were Copic colored, die cut, and layered over the banner with foam adhesive and a few gems were added for sparkle!

A beautiful ink blended background is a perfect backdrop for the By the Numbers Die done in white cardstock.  The background was ink blended onto Bristol Smooth cardstock using Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral, and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks.  Using coordinating colors of Copic markers, the cake image (from Umpteenth Birthday) was colored and hand trimmed out.  The image was added with foam adhesive to a two inch band of vellum that was white heat embossed with one of the sentiments from the same set.  A few clear droplets were added for some shine.
