Essentials by Ellen hop

Hello everyone!  Hope you're having a fantastic day!

I'm continuing the new Essentials by Ellen release hop fun and have a card to share!  You should have arrived here from Julia Stainton's blog.   If you just got here and haven't hopped, head to the classroom to start!

The latest release in the Essentials by Ellen line is absolutely amazing!  Oh my gosh, it's so fun and festive!  Who doesn't love to celebrate?!?!

For my card, I am playing with the new YAY dies!   I die cut the balloons and stars and sponged distress ink onto them to create a very light and airy effect!  For the letters, I left them white to create a fun tone-on-tone effect.  I adhere all the layers back together and created a fun card perfect for any recipient! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!


Love is in the Air

Hey everyone!  I'm back sharing a card with the new Love Is In The Air.

Oh my gosh I love this set soooo much!  Something about clouds just makes me happy!

To create my card, I stamped a background using Sea Glass and Mermaid ink.  Then I die cut a frame from the Large Pierced Scallops dies and popped my frame up on foam.  Finally I stamped and die cut the heart balloon and string from Love Is In The Air and then stamped, die cut and colored in the birds to pop them all up on foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with us here!

Have a great day!

Avery Elle Balloons

Hello everyone! I'm back and have this project over on the Avery Elle blog - but wanted to share it here too!

How's your week coming along?  I think I'm finally recuperating after the holiday weekend.  :)

For today, I'm continuing playing with the new Balloons and Banners stamp set.
I love these balloons so much.  Really, I find a great balloon stamp super versatile so I was thrilled to see this set.  I paired the balloons with a sentiment from Big Greetings stamp set

To create the inked effect for these balloons, I simply dabbed only the edges of the balloons in the ink leaving much of the inner part of the balloon stamp un-inked.   I love how this technique works with balloons by creating the perfect airiness! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me.  Have a great one!
