Ellen Hutson UWF

Hey everyone!!!  It's time for another Ellen Hutson United We Flourish release and this month is a beautiful Waffleflower stamp and die set.  

It's the prettiest multi-stamp set that creates a needlepoint globe - but the globe actually can be stamped into flowers!  Thud.  So cool!
To create my card, I stamped the globe and added a sentiment and then added an accent die cut frame.  
Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  Have a great one! 
Thanks, Heather

Magnolias

Hey all!  Today I've got a card using the new Avery Elle Magnolia stamp set.
To create my card, I heat embossed the magnolias on watercolor paper and then watercolored with the new Avery Elle Cherry and Celery watercolors.  One dry, I die cut them out with the coordinating Magnolia dies. 

To create the card, I ink blended a coordinating background and accented with a frame from the new Avery Elle Wonky Scallops die, and then assembled the magnolias on the card base, all adhered with dimensional adhesive!   

Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  
XOXO, Heather

Avery Elle Blog Hop


Hey everyone!  It's Avery Elle blog hop time!  

Today, I'm sharing projects from the new Sea-prise stamp set.  This stamp set has got to be one of my all time favorites. The images are just adorable and so fun to play with! 
For the hop, I created two cards.
First I used the puffer fish and created a super fun little shaker card. 

Next I used the shark and tucked him in some vellum layers to make it look like he's popping out of the ocean.

Happy Birthday Bears

Surprise!  I'm popping in with a fun Essentials by Ellen card today! :)
Seriously though, this bear might be one of my favorite stamps of all time.  It's just too stinking adorable.
For my card, I stamped and then masked each bear to create the depth of bears.  I managed to do this with only 3 masks - so don't hesitate to try this technique yourself.  If you're not familiar with masking, you can check out this video here. 

I also masked the balloons and then stamped a sentiment and added a strip of patterned paper to assemble my card.  I had so much fun coloring in all of these bears too!  I feel like each one just oozes personality, right?! 

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