Avery Elle / Loads of Hugs

Hello crafty friends!!  

I am here today with a card full of sunshine and HUGS.  Being from Kansas, sunflowers are a favorite of mine.  Pairing these flowers with the Loads of Hugs die is perfect to send a card full of sunshine and HUGS to a friend out of state.

I pulled out a previously released set called Sunflowers and Copic colored the blooms.  Once die cut, they were arranged onto a landscape folded card that had a Distress Ink blended panel (die cut with the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments) adhered.  The Loads of Hugs die was done in black cardstock and added with several layers of white cardstock for dimension.  To finish off the card, a few dew drop embellishments were added.

Papertrey Ink / What Do I Do With This?

Sending Warm Hugs2

Hi crafty friends!  
I'm here and I am excited to share this card using a much older Papertrey Ink product in a new updated way. 

Sending Warm Hugs2 (1)

I dug deep for this die as my stash has been packed away for some time.  Anyone remember the Rainbow Stripes Die?  I've used it with Soft Stone cardstock for a soft background element for the blooms from Into the Blooms: Dahlia Die

The blooms and leaves were ink blended with Distress Oxide Inks and die cut.  Shading and white pigment ink were added for dimension.  After arranging the blooms, they were adhered using liquid glue and foam tape.  A stacked sentiment from Perfect Pairs: Essentials was done in bold black ink along with a supporting sentiment strip.  To finish the card, white gems were added and then the whole card was spritzed with Shimmer Spray.

Avery Elle / Feels Like Home and Additions

Hi crafty friends!  
I'm here with a cozy little scene using the sets Feels Like Home and Feels Like Home Additions.  Using these sets together, can make for endless scenes!!!

We recently made a cozy "reading" corner in our living room.  While our chair is not blue, it is green and very comfy!  The chair, plant stand, and kitty images were all from Feels Like Home.  The rest of the images (plant, light, rabbit) are all from Feels Like Home Additions.  I did create a "beam" of light yellow light by masking off the area and ink blending a light yellow ink.  

The Oval Burst Elle-ments is one of my favorites and it was perfect to "frame" my scene.  Once the frame was adhered to the notecard with the beam of light, all my images were added with various layers of foam adhesive.  A white pigment ink details were added to finish the card.

Reverse Confetti / April Blog Hop

April blog hop2

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti April 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'm in the mood for SPRING so I decided to pull out some of the posies from Sending Smiles along with a sentiment from Poppies.  If you don't recognize the background, it's because these dies were previously released..... Center Circle Cover Panel and the Large Detailed Circle Frame.  They gave the perfect places to add some gold touches!   A few gold gems and the gold heat embossed sentiment tie the whole card together!

Avery Elle / Bee a Keeper

Hello crafty friends!  

I'm here today with a sweet card using Bee a Keeper from Avery Elle.  One of my favorite sayings to tell my kids is "you're a keeper" so this sentiment is perfect!

Using some standard hexagon dies, Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink was ink blended onto the right sides of the hexagons.  Black Soot Distress Ink splatters were done across all the hexagons.  The hexagons were added with foam adhesive to a panel die cut using the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments.  The cute bear and bees were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating Bee a Keeper Elle-ments.  To finish, the sentiment was stamped onto one of the hexagons!
