Avery Elle / Sweet Swines

I am here using Sweet Swines from Avery Elle which includes the adorable pig on a scooter!  

I created this scene using the Cloud Mat Elle-ments.  I love the piercing details on every cloud.  You can choose to use the entire panel full of clouds but here I eliminated a few at the bottom.  I also decided to add foam adhesive to most of them for dimension along with the frame that was adhered over a Distress Ink blended background.

To ground my pig on a scooter, I simply added a white heat embossed black sentiment strip at the bottom to mimick a sidewalk.  To keep with the colorful scarf he's wearing, I added a Star Frame Elle-ments and stamped the tiny star stamps from Sweet Swines in all the little stars on the Star Frame.  Finally, I added my pig over the Star Frame and added a flag that says, "Yippee"!

Reverse Confetti / Somebunny Special

I am here with a card that is sure to put you in the SPRING mood.  We've had some pretty windy days lately so I knew I wanted to use the bunny flying a kite from the Spring Bunnies set.

Somebunny Special 

I created a layered clean and simple card using some of the amazing tag Confetti Cuts from Reverse Confetti.  I started with the Scallop Window Tag out of Piggybank Cardstock and the Grid Stitched Tag (trimmed it down) out of white cardstock.  The layered tag was adhered over a background die cut using the Stitched Burst Cover Panel.  A sentiment strip banner and green strip banner (using Sweet Stripes 6x6 paper pad) were adhered to ground my bunny.  I added my Copic colored bunny with foam adhesive and added a black twine bow.

Avery Elle / Speech Bubbles

Hello!  Amy here with a clean and simple scene card using mainly dies from Avery Elle.  

My card measures 4.25" x 4.25".  I created a scene using several dies:  Leafy Frames Elle-ments and Grand Photo Mat Elle-Ments (retired but an alternative is the Photo Mat Elle-ments).  I trimmed down the photo mat die and layered the Leafy Frames behind it.  

Speech Bubbles

My scene frame was adhered with foam adhesive.  I added the cute Leopard from the Peek-A-Boo Jungle set and a speech bubble.  The new Speech Bubbles set has so many perfect sentiments to use with 2 different speech bubbles!!

Spellbinders / Modern Essentials Collection

I have a springy card to share using one of the new Essential Shapes from Spellbinders!
  I paired the new Essential Ovals Etched Dies with an older Die of the Month that is still available and so cute and retro!



I started by using the largest oval to pierce my actual note card.  Using some of the other sizes I created layers and dimension with them.  I layered a black die cut Smile using the Die D-Lites Type Smile Etched Die.  After adhering my die cut sentiment, I began placing my various die cut flowers from the Spring Flowers Small Die of the MonthI love the retro look to these flowers and was fun to mix and match these together!  As finishing touches once the flowers were adhered, gems were added to the flower centers.

Crafty Friends Blog Hop featuring Pinkfresh Studio


It's time for the Crafty Friends Blog Hop!  We’re a group of amazing stampers that share similar paths…and we want to share our crafty projects with you!    We’ll be hopping each month featuring a specific company or brand…and this month’s favorite is Pinkfresh Studio!  I have to thank my friend, Caly Person, for the use of this stamp set recently and for her beautiful handwriting skills on my watermark.  Thank you Caly!!!

Check below for a code to use at Pinkfresh Studio for TWO days only!!

The Layered Bouquet stamp set is gorgeous and just simple enough with two layers for the flowers.  I find die cutting the image and then stamping (using my Misti) makes lining up this set effortless.  I stamped my blooms in shades of blue ink and added in some glitter to the highlighted parts.  My bouquet was added to a stitched panel (from a different company) and a black Hello die cut was added .  Simple and easy!

Erin Lee Creative / March Release / Blog Hop

Sweet Succulents

I am so excited to help my friend Erin of Erin Lee Creative with her latest release.   The release was actually released early over the weekend!  There is an inspiration blog hop today that is listed below.......Let's have some fun!

I had so much fun with the Sweet Succulents Bundle.  I created some purple succulents as these are the kind I remember my grandma having in her huge iron kettle pot in her front flower bed.

I started with the new Houndstooth Stencil.  Scattered Straw Distress Ink was lightly blended over a panel of cardstock.  I added in my die cut stamped succulents and leaves adding in some dimension with foam adhesive.  The 'congratulations' sentiment is from the new set Small Script.  A few white gems finish my card!

Avery Elle / Hot Dog

Hello!  It's Hot Dog week over on the Avery Elle blog!  I have a card using Hot Dog and an older die called Circle Frames Elle-ments.

Hot Dog

I thought I would show off these cute images from Hot Dog all colored up with Copics.  A great way to keep a card clean and simple is to use a "window".  I used the Circle Frames Elle-ments and ink blended some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink behind each of the circle openings to really make my images pop.  The Circle Frames Elle-ments panel was trimmed down, edges 1/4" rounded, and adhered to the ink blended note card with foam adhesive.

All my images were added with a double layer of foam adhesive for more dimension.  I added two white heat embossed black sentiment strips across one of the circle windows and finished my card off with a few black gems.
