Avery Elle / Bold Thanks

I'm here with a super clean and simple card using the Bold Thanks Elle-ments from the current release.

Bold Thanks2

I saw a fun gift sack from Hallmark this season that had stripes on it in these colors so I went with that as inspiration!  Be on the lookout anywhere for colors or patterns that may spark inspiration!  I used scraps of cardstock in 1/4" strips and adhered them to a white cardstock panel and then die cut the Bold Thanks Elle-ments.  I adhered my striped 'Thank You' off set onto a white die cut 'Thank You' just for a bit of shadow and then added the die cut back into the striped panel on the white notecard.  This gives such a fun look!

Bold Thanks

Pinkfresh Studio December 2022 Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

Floral Border__AmyKolling2 (1)

It's time for the December Pinkfresh Studio release of stamps, dies, stencils, and hot foil products!  I am so glad to join this group for this release.  There are gorgeous florals that just make me want to move to warmer weather all year round!

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

The Floral Border Collection includes stamps, stencils, dies, and a hot foil plate.  

I've added satin metallic gold foil to the Floral Border Foil Plate for a muted look.  The florals were stenciled with Pinkfresh Studio Inks in shades of pinks, yellows, and greens.  This border was die cut three times, layered for dimension, and added to a notecard.  Keeping this simple, I've added a foiled sentiment from Modern Script Sentiments.  I wanted to add some bling to this but I just couldn't and take away from their beauty.

My next cards are a duo made with one stenciled panel using Mixed Blooms.  Get creative and use all the parts of a panel you've stenciled!

These cards use a new die/hot foil set called Nested Rectangles.  I hot foiled 2 frames and die cut using the coordinating dies.  The stenciled panel was inked up using Pinkfresh Studio Inks and then a rectangle was die cut from the center of the panel.  This panel was then used for card #2.  Both cards use hot foiled sentiments from Brushed Sentiments.  Each card was embellished with Gold Glitter Drops.

Avery Elle / So Fetching

I'm here with a quick, clean and simple technique using the set So Fetching from Avery Elle.

So Fetching2

A small stamp set doesn't have to be limiting.  Use those tiny stamps that are included in the set as a background!  The panel was started by scoring every 1/2" down.  This comes in handy when designing the space around your image.  Here I've used the tiny heart stamps to fill in the "sky" above the pup from So Fetching coloring them in with R14, R24, and R29 Copic markers.

Another tip is to look to other sets for sentiments that may "change up" the smaller set.  For instance here.....the sentiments that are included with So Fetching are small so I looked to the Banner Celebrations set for a sentiment that was larger that would coordinate.  I've white heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of red cardstock and added the pup from So Fetching with foam adhesive.

Avery Elle / Love Tags

Hi everyone!  
I'm here sharing some LOVE with these fun Love Tags with coordinating stamps from Avery Elle.

Love Tags2

What better than an adorable card with the dogs from So Fetching!  The scene was done using a red polka dot paper from the Holiday Collection 6x6 Paper Pack along with a thin black cardstock strip to ground the images and sentiment.  The background was splattered with Gansai Tambi Gold.  The sweet dogs were were Copic colored, die cut, and added to the card with foam adhesive.  The sentiment 'love' from the Love Tag Elle-ments was die cut several times and layered for dimension.  To finish, a small supporting sentiment, from Love Tags stamps, was added with foam adhesive.
