You Are A Hero with Avery Elle...

 

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday! Mayra here with you today. I am so happy to be here. I am sharing two cards with you today, a Mother's Day and a Father's Day themed card using the same stamp set. I used the super,'SUPER' cute Superheroes stamp set from Avery Elle


I began by die cutting the larger rectangle from the Wonky Stitches Elle-ments die set. I die cut it twice, one using Bristol Smooth Cardstock and the second one from plain white cardstock. I then added color to the panel cut from the Bristol Smooth paper using Distress Oxide inks. I used Cracked Pistachio, Dried Marigold, Abandoned Coral and a bit of Salty Ocean



Next, I colored the images from the set. I used Copic markers to color them. For the green areas, I used YG01, G40, YG23, and a bit YG17. For the mint colors, BG10, BG11, BG23, and BG34. For the soft orange, I used YR000, YR12, YR14, and YR02. For the ink/coral color, I used R00, R02, R20, and R32. For the Father's Day card, I used R05 instead R32.  To color the bear, bunny, koala, and mice, I used E50, E81, E31, and E55. 



I then stamped the sentiments from the sets onto the speech bubbles from the Speech Bubbles stamp set using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. I hope you enjoy the cards I created to share with you today. Thank you very much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you each have a wonderful and blessed day. Please feel welcome to visit me on my blog, IG or Pinterest

Hello from Toni: PPP Peonies


Hello, my lovelies!  Today's card is soft and pretty and I just love it.

I sponged the Pretty Pink Posh Peonies stencil a few times using Distress Oxide Kitsch Flamingo, Seedless Preserves, and Barn Door. I cut those out by hand and set them aside while I worked on the background.


I sponged one part of the two-part Pink Fresh Studio Simple Plaid Layered stencil with Distress Oxide Antique Linen. 

Then I figured out where the flowers were going to go and sponged a some of the Pretty Pink Posh Peonies stencil leaves directly onto the background using Distress Oxide Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive. I sponged a few on scrap paper and fussy cut them.


I used a combination of foam tape layers for the flowers and leaves so they would be really dimensional. 

The bee and sentiment are from Honey Bee, naturally:  Honey and Honey Bees.  I added black Enamel Accents for the stamens as the yellow Copic I had originally used just didn't pop enough. Now, bam!


I'll see you again soon.  If you'd like to check out my other creations in the meantime, you can visit my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, my Instagram, or my Pinterest Board.

Hold On To Hope with Waffle Flower stamps...

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone! Mayra here with you today. I created a sweet card to share with you today. I used the super beautiful Hopeful Girl stamp set. I fell in love with this stamp set the moment I saw it. 


I began by coloring the images from the set using Copic markers. 

For the green, I used YG01, FYG1, YG23, G28, YG67, and  YG17. For mint, I used BG34, BG11, G00, and G000. For the soft pink, I used R43, RV42, R30, and R00. For the soft peach color, I used YR000, E95, YR12, and YR14. For the hair, I used E41, E81, E43, E84, and E87. For the yellow areas, I used  Y11Y08, Y19, and YR24.  For the skin, I used E50, E51, E21, and E23.


Next, I used the largest stitched rectangle from the A2 Lacy Layers die set to die-cut the panel. I then stamped the sentiment from the set onto the card using black ink. 

I hope you enjoy this card I created to share with you.

Thank you very much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you each have a wonderful and blessed day. Please feel welcome to visit me on my blogIG or Pinterest

Hello from Toni: Avery Elle Unicyle Birthday


Hi, everyone!  I think this card is super cute for being masculine(ish) but apparently it didn't make much of an impression on my partner when I gave it to him. I mentioned it was posting today and he couldn't recall what it looked like until I mentioned the snake on top. Of course--the snake.  Men!


I used the Mama Elephant Slim Card Basics and Window Dressing dies to create the layered scene.  I used the dies for diecuts but also for masks (clouds and hills).


I colored up the Avery Elle Unicycle images with Copics and coordinating Distress Oxide Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn for the background elements.


The really fun part was watching the scene come alive with the addition of the white pigment pen highlights, sequins and the Mama Elephant Let's Chat diecuts. Those Mama Elephant Big News and Comic Sayings sentiments fit on speech bubbles perfectly.


I'll see you again soon.  If you'd like to check out my other creations in the meantime, you can visit my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, my Instagram, or my Pinterest Board.
