Avery Elle / Toucan Party

Are you ready for a little "toucan party"?  This new stamp set from Avery Elle has you covered when it comes to sentiments.....birthday, thanks, and just "tropi-cool"!

Toucan Party

To a panel of white cardstock, I ink blended some Broken China Distress Oxide ink to one corner (this does not have to be perfect).  To this panel, I used the Polka Dot Plate to die cut the polka dots.

I stamped my images using New Moon Dye Ink, Copic colored, and die cut using the Toucan Party Elle-ments.  My sentiment was white heat embossed using Pure White Fine Embossing Powder.  I simply layered my images, some with foam adhesive, to my white notecard that was layered with the polka dot panel.

Technique Tuesday / Fun News

DT announcement 

Hello!  I'm so excited to share that I have joined up with the wonderful DT over at Technique Tuesday!  We will get things started with the new release next week!

I had to make a project to share today using the Enjoy Layered Flower and coordinating dies.  I stamped and die cut the flower and leaves (I used Altenew ink) and layered them on a piece of light green gingham paper that I used the Threaded Crafting Dies on the edges for the zig zag look!

Winnie & Walter / 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop Celebrating Love and Friendship


Hello!  I am honored to be in the lineup of fabulous designers to help Winnie & Walter celebrate their 4th Birthday!  I have had the best time getting to know Shay over the years and am so happy for her and this milestone!  

The full blog hop list is below so make sure to visit all the blogs and leave comments for the giveaways!

What better to celebrate......Love & Friendship!  
I had fun mixing and matching some stamps and dies from Winnie & Walter.  

I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth Watercolor paper to which I white heat embossed the outline hearts from From the Bottom of My Heart.  Using some watercolor, I loosely watercolored over the hearts for an emboss resist look to create my background and added some splatters.  Using a another piece of watercolor paper, I die cut the In a Word: Hugs Cutaway several times to create my chipboard element.  Sending You, from Sentimental: Love, was white heat embossed on a thin strip of black cardstock.  

My sentiments were adhered over a die cut heart from the From the Bottom of My Heart CutawaysThis panel was adhered over a strip of black/white striped paper on the left.   A few die cut hearts from watercolor paper and clear sequins were added as embellishments.



There can't be a blog hop without prizes so make sure to leave comments along the way by February 28, 11:59 CST for your chance at FOUR $40 credits to the W&W shop!

I hope you'll join me here the final 2 days as I share Sweet Peeks for the all the NEW products that will be available for purchase starting this Friday, February 16th at 6PM EST in the SPD Store.

I love the look of topiaries but I wanted to use this stamp set in a different way.  I stamped the heart topiary from Garden Topiary onto the scallop stitched panel from the new Card Front Element Builder SugarCut using 4 different shades of pink ink.  To all the lightest stamped heart, I over stamped the sentiment in black ink.  I love by stamping this panel, it reminds me of a postage stamp!

Hero Arts / 2018 Catalog Blog Hop

Mouse Tea Party

I am so excited to help celebrate the new Hero Arts 2018 Catalog!  If you have not taken a peek at all the goodness, YOU can check it out here now as well as purchase your favorites!

One of the new sets that I just had to have is this adorable Mouse Tea Party.  I used the emboss resist technique to stamp a strip of background to "ground" my images.  

I started by masking off a strip of white cardstock with painters tape, white heat embossing the small images (butterflies, flowers, greenery) in this set, and blending Broken China Distress Oxide Ink over the images.  After Copic coloring my mice, I used the Mouse Tea Party Frame Cuts to cut out my images.  I added them to my emboss resist strip with foam adhesive and stamped my sentiment.

Color Layering Butterflies

My next card uses the NEW Deep Ocean Liquid Watercolor.  Using a piece of Bristol Smooth watercolor paper, I did a wash of clean water and then dropped color in and let the water do it's thing.  Before it was completely dry, I laid a paper towel over the panel and lifted some of the color.  The result was perfect!  

For the focal point, I used the Color Layering Butterflies Bundle (includes stamps, dies, ink).  I used the green inks in this bundle for the larger butterfly and the inks from Kelly's Flowers and Jayne's Blush.  I stamped all of them using my mini Misti.  To finish, I used the Hello Stamp & Cut set for my sentiment.

Now for those NEW liquid need them.  Here they are all together.......gorgeous!
