This week’s challenge is a fun one – with so many gorgeous patterned paper pads available from Doodlebug it was difficult to know which to pick.  I loved the Cream and Sugar collection when I first saw it so that was really my obvious choice.  I picked up the packet of “Odds and Ends” die cuts too so this card really cam together in no time!  All I did was die cut a frame from the donut design paper to make a frame using the stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp and added a bit of shimmer with a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.  Cute or what?!

For my card today I used the gorgeous Hero Arts Glorious Petal stencil and combined it with Distress Oxide Inks and clear embossing over the top.  I started by brushing Cracked Pistachio over the centre area and brought in some Worn Lipstick just around the outside edge.  With the stencil still in place I pressed some Versamark ink over the top.  I removed the stencil and sprinkled the card with Wow Clear Gloss embossing powder and heated it.  For the panel across the top I die cut a strip of white card with the largest of the scallop edge dies from Simon Says Stamp.  I then used Cracked Pistachio and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink again  to stamp the Happy and Everything from Sentimental Too from Avery Elle.  To finish I added a few drops of Nuvo Jewel Drops.

Avery Elle … Sentimental Too http://glittermesilly.com/2017/06/avery-elle-sentimental-too/ http://glittermesilly.com/2017/06/avery-elle-sentimental-too/#respond Mon, 12 Jun 2017 09:44:38 +0000 http://glittermesilly.com/?p=5042

One of my favourite stamp and die sets from Avery Elle Stamps last year was the Sentimental collection.  What a fantastic concept – I have used both the stamps and dies many times on my cards.  Well this year we have Sentimental Too!  An additional collection of amazing sentiments in the same gorgeous style as the first batch.  I’ve paired it here with a set I designed for the latest release, Floral Bouquet and I think it is a match made in heaven!

I had fun creating a background using Distress Oxide inks this week.  I love the way they just melt into each other – and these three colours just go so well together.  I kept the rest of the card clean and simple to create a card perfect for a Dad’s birthday or even Father’s Day!!  By the way, our sister Challenge (the Monday Team) have a masculine themed challenge this week so make sure you link up your creation to both challenges for two chances to win!!

Hi there!  I have a card to share today using the gorgeous Mom and Dad stamp set from the latest release from Avery Elle Stamps.  I paired this set with the stunning Heart Frame die which I die cut from gold glitter adhesive paper – LOVE!!  I stamped the sentiment and flower cluster in gold embossing powder and filled it in using Nuvo Jewel Drops to add some subtle colour.  The glossy, dimension looks fab!  For a little background interest I spritzed the card base with some gold splatters <3

Hey – it’s Wednesday and time for a brand new challenge.  I chose to work with a gorgeous, summery hibiscus stamp design from Technique Tuesday for my card this week.  I love the size of the flower in this set, and the font is gorgeous.  I stamped the flower in black and then coloured it with Copics.  The base of the card has been stencilled using the Tiny Dots stencil from Simon Says Stamp – my favourite stencil of ALL TIME!!  I added a touch of gold with some Washi tape, fine gold thread and finished with some little dots of Nuvo drops in Orange Marmalade.

Avery Elle … Beside The Sea http://glittermesilly.com/2017/05/avery-elle-beside-the-sea/ http://glittermesilly.com/2017/05/avery-elle-beside-the-sea/#comments Mon, 29 May 2017 13:00:05 +0000 http://glittermesilly.com/?p=5020

Happy Monday everyone!  It’s particularly happy here in the UK as it’s a Bank Holiday, yay!  Hope you’re enjoying it whatever you’re up to.  My card is perfectly times today as it features a set I designed for the brand new Summer release from Avery Elle Stamps.  Beside The Sea is a wee 3×4″ stamp set featuring a row of cute beach huts and some little extra accessories to create the perfect little seaside scene.  As I drew the set I imagined a row of pastel-coloured beach huts and so here is the finished result!  I stamped the images in Versamark and then heat embossed them in white.  I used Zig Clean Colour Brush markers for the sun-bleached, washed out feel and the new Diagonal Stripes background die sets the scene perfectly!

Hey there.  I’m sharing a card I created using the No Way stamp set from the brand new Summer 2017 release from Avery Elle Stamps.  The wee avocado with his little face is just cuteness overload!  I stamped him three times and masking each time for a simple design that anyone would love!  The set has various sentiments you can stamp to go with the “Holy Guacamole” stamp – such a clever set!

No Way

50dollar_voucher_600pxYay – a bit of sparkle – a challenge made for me if ever there was one!  I’ve been dying to play with this gorgeous Emma stamp for ages – it was out of stock when I originally tried to get it so when it came back I grabbed it pronto!  I thought it would pair nicely with some gold embossing and was going to add some water colour but then remembered something super fun I saw being demonstrated at a local craft fair last weekend by the amazing Keren Baker!  This effect was made using Infusions powders from PaperArtsy.  They come in amazing colours (this is my favourite called A Bit Jaded) and you literally just sprinkle a tiny bit on your paper and spritz with water – and then the magic happens!!!!  I HIGHLY recommend trying them out – I can’t wait to have a go with some of the other colours too!

Avery Elle Summer Release Blog Hop http://glittermesilly.com/2017/05/avery-elle-summer-release-blog-hop-3/ http://glittermesilly.com/2017/05/avery-elle-summer-release-blog-hop-3/#comments Thu, 11 May 2017 13:00:04 +0000 http://glittermesilly.com/?p=5000
It’s that exciting time again – a brand new Summer Release from Avery Elle Stamps!  I am so happy when the new goodies are finally available and we can start sharing all the fun projects we’ve been working on.  I have designed 2 new stamp sets and coordinating Elle-ments in this release and am thrilled to be showcasing them today in this amazing blog hop.  You should have jumped here from my fabulous friend Karolyn Loncon’s blog but if you want to start at the beginning (and you really should) then go HERE to the Avery Elle Blog.
Right, so onto my creations!  The first of the two sets I’ve designed this time is called Floral Bouquet.  It has a bunch of flowers as a large single stamp and then other elements such as leaves and buds so you can create your own display!  I’ve made 2 cards each time pairing the flowers with one of the amazing new frame dies from the release (going to the very top of my “must-have” die list by the way).  On the first card the images are stamped in New Moon Dye ink and then coloured with Copics  and finished with a coating of Spectrum Noir shimmer.
Floral Bouquet 2
The flowers on this second card were stamped in Versamark then heat embossed in white.  I used Kuretake Tambi Gansai water colours this time and used a blue card base to complement the images.
