Avery Elle / Snowflakes

Snowflakes

Hello!  I'm here with a glittery, metallic winter card using the Snowflakes stamp set.  I started with a white panel and using Silver Embossing Powder, heat embossed the various snowflakes.  I used the dotted border die from Picket Fence Elle-ments as the edge.  I inlaid the Let it Snow from Snowflakes Elle-ments using silver glitter paper.  I left off any embellishments to keep this flat except for the foam adhesive on the curved panel so it is easy to mail!

SugarPea Designs / Sweet Peek Day 3

Flurry of Warm Wishes 

Hello!  I am excited to share more of the projects I've been working on for the brand new release from SugarPea Designs!  Each day this week, we will be sharing inspiration using the new release.  With several new stamp sets and matching dies.......there's something you are sure to love!  

I hope you'll join me here over the next 3 days as I share Sweet Peeks for the all the NEW products that will be available for purchase starting this Friday, October 20th at 6PM EST in the SPD Store.


Starting things off with the stamp set called Flurry of Warm Wishes which is a beautiful snowflake stamp set.  As soon as I saw these images, I knew I wanted to white heat emboss and do a resist technique.  

Using Blueprint Sketch and Broken China Distress Inks, I blended the color in patches over my white heat embossed snowflakes.  I also blended in these same colors onto a piece of scrap paper for my sentiment strips so they could be white heat embossed as well.  I added my sentiment strips with foam adhesive and added some clear sequins.

Pinecone Greetings

My next card uses Pinecone Greetings in a half circle using several shades of green ink and white heat embossing various areas of this image.  The sentiment was stamped onto white cardsock for a polished look with gold heat embossing.  The stripes down the left side were done using Off The Charts line item stamp to added stripes but no bulk to this card.

Lil' Inker Designs / September Release Day 2

Amy_SeasonsGreetings 

We are starting off Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs October Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps for the upcoming holidays.......are you ready?  Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!! 


I love the animals in the Season's Greetings stamp set!  I Copic colored the adorable bear  and frame from the set and fussy cut the images out.  The banner and sentiment was white heat embossed onto black cardstock and hand cut out as well.  While this photo looks like the images are flat, the bear and sentiment banner are actually adhered with foam adhesive.  The images were layered onto a Stitched Mats: Rectangles die in vellum and further layered over rustic red gingham pattern paper.

My second project is a couple of tags using various Lil' Inker Designs tag dies along with some new stamps and dies.  

My first tag uses the Silly Stitched Square Dies done in white.  I die cut the new Noel Word Die in kraft cardstock and then again in red cardstock.  The 2 layers were trimmed and layered together and a red glittery "nose" was added.

My second tag uses the Anytime Tags Dies done in both vellum and a brick pattern paper.  This gives the look of pattern but at the same time, softens the pattern to make the images stand out.  The santa and reindeer were Copic colored and die cut using coordinating dies.  The reindeer is from the new set called Rowdy Reindeer and the santa is from Moody Santa Stamps.  These images make perfect tags and the sentiments are hilarious!

Off the Charts 

Hello!  I am excited to share some of the projects I've been working on for the brand new release from SugarPea Designs!  Each day this week, we will be sharing inspiration using the new release.  With several new stamp sets and matching dies.......there's something you are sure to love!

Off The Charts is such a unique set that is fantastic for birthdays, holidays, and masculine cards!  I've used it in a neutral color palette that would be perfect for a masculine card.  Keeping it CAS, I stamped the grid in black and added the parts of the graph in red ink and trimmed it out.  A few wood stars finished off this masculine birthday!

Lil' Inker Designs / September Release Day 1

Amy_FestiveFlorals 

We are starting off Day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs October Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps for the upcoming holidays.......are you ready?  Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!

Let's get started because I have THREE cards to share using the new release!


I like to start out with my favorite stamp set of the release and Festive Florals won me over.  Holiday florals and white heat embossing?  LOVE!  To color the poinsettias, I used Bristol Smooth Watercolor Paper with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and kept adding color and shading until I was satisfied with the look.  My sentiment was done using gold embossing powder.  The panel was finished using the Silly Stitched Die Set, gold spatters, and then added with foam adhesive.

My next 2 cards use the same non-traditional color palette.  I particularly LOVE these colors for holiday cards!

I began this card with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper and did the smooshing technique using Distress Inks:  Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, and Peacock Feathers.  While allowing this to dry, I diecut the Christmas Words Tree Die in black and several white layers.  Once the dies were all adhered together, I added some Prisma Glitter to the star and added my element to the water color panel.

My next card uses the same colors but this time using Catherine Pooler inks (which are amazing and you can shop for them on my sidebar!).   Using the Peace, Love, and Joy Stamps, I stamped the highlighed parts of the words with the colored ink onto a strip of white cardstock.  This strip was layered with a strip of vellum with foam adhesive.  The whole sentiment was added to a white top folding notecard that was layered with the Geometric Snow Cover Up Die and some iridescent sequins.

Spellbinders / October 2017 Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY

Daisy 

Welcome!  I am so honored to be helping Spellbinders alongside so many fabulous designers to celebrate their October release of Die D-Lites.  They have some amazing new die collections! 

Spellbinders


I went very Clean and Simple to show off these dies.  I love florals and used the new Die D-lites Daisy 2 Etched Dies I started with 2 panels trimmed at an angle, one in grey and one in black.  After adding these to my white top folding notecard, I added a stamped sentiment to follow the angle of the panels.  Using the Daisy 2 Dies, several were die cut with red, pink, yellow, green, and orange cardstocks.  Once I had these in an arrangement I liked, I used Press 'n Seal to pick up the arrangement, add glue, and adhere in place.  TIP:  these dies also emboss but I didn't want that much dimension here.
