Avery Elle new release blog hop!

 Hi there!


I'm so excited for this new Avery Elle release! You can find everything in the store already (click HERE). I designed 2 beachy sets for this release, Beachy and Make A Splash. I made 2 cards using Beachy to show off today!


For this first card, I stamped all of the elements, brought in the sun from Flamazing, and framed everything using the new Pierced Ray Frame die set. The whole scene is so bright and happy! I love the little flip flops in the sand. To give the scene a little extra pop, I colored the scalloped part of the frame (which is optional, how great is that!) in red. 


My next card features the same bear, but now he's bending down to see if he can hear what the squirrel is listening to from that shell! I used the other new frame die - the Pierced Birthday Frame - and did the opposite of what I did on the first card. The scalloped portion in white, and the frame in a fun pink. I brought in some clouds, from Carrot Car, and the big puddle from Tickled Pink to finish off the scene.

I hope you like the new sets! Come visit me on instagram for a fun giveaway, and be sure to check out the rest of the design team's creations:

Avery Elle new release blog hop!


Hi there!

wowza, this blog has just sat here with no new posts for the last few months. I've been posting stuff to instagram, but it feels like no one visits blogs anymore. I'd love to hear your opinion on that!

But today, I'm so excited for today's Avery Elle new release blog hop! I designed 5 sets for this release, and you'll find them all in the store HERE.

Today, I'm showing off the Rain Or Shine stamp set, and I've crafted 3 cards to show you:

My first card features the fox and his little duck friends! There are 2 ducks included in the set, but by tilting them a little differently, they look like they are all unique. I did an ink-blended background, and let it get hazy towards the middle. I then used my white gel pen to create the rain drops - some dashes, some round drops.

To finish up the card, I used a copic marker to add darker puddles beneath their boots, and the white gel pen to add highlights.

Where my first card featured bright, primary colors, my next one is softer in its pastel colors. I brought in the bear and the little frog. I love his little googly eyes! I had no idea how hard it would be to draw a frog, by the way. Go figure, he's one of the smallest critters and I drew some really odd looking ones before I settled on him. I love how the bear and fox are providing him some shelter!

For this card, I only ink-blended around the top, and left the ground white. I added some soft blue puddles under their feet.

My last card is the most simple, but still so sweet. I used the Star Scene die to provide the cut out, and backed it with a Waves die-cut in the background. I then layered a sweet scene featuring the bunny and his little snail friend. 

I hope you like what I created for you! I am running a giveaway on my instagram today - be sure to leave me a comment there to be entered to win a stamp set of your choosing from the new release.
