It was really hard to capture with the camera, but I die cut acrylic and added it to every other banner piece. I can't resist using those glossy enamel dots, so I added some of those as well.

Thinking of You with Avery Elle's Modern Leaves

Hello, there ! I am here today sharing another card using some Avery Elle stamps.  I love this little dot stamp that comes with Avery Elle's Mondern Leaves set.  In fact, I am always using it when I am layering stamped images.  I was trying to think of a different ways to use it, and decided to create a polka dot background.  I made very faint lines with pencil (I was a little nervous it wouldn't come off) and stamped the dots in Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist. Then, after erasing the marks, I started layering the card up a bit.

I stamped the sentiment onto a Studio Calico wood veneer and added that enamel dot ( eek can't get enough of them!!) from my crafting stash.

That's it for today, thanks for stopping by, 


Thank You using Avery Elle's Ikat Additions

Today, I am sharing a quick card using Avery Elle's Ikat Additions. I love this set, because there are so many possibilities and ways to change it up, today I decided on some simple layering (which is my favorite thing to do these days).

I started out with a skinny card base (3 3/4 x 5 1/2 to be exact).  I found the perfect color inspiration here on pinterest ( I love using just 3 colors on a card). Then using the Limitless Layers dies from Papertrey Ink, I created the circle cut out from Hero Arts Punch layering paper (LOVE this color).

Sweet Stamp Shop "Too Hip"

Hello all, 

I am just popping in to share some cards I made recently with the "Too Hip" stamp set from the Sweet Stamp Shop.  I think after getting this set it spent about 2 weeks sitting on my desk and I pretty much used it every time I crafted!  Love it!

I seriously love these glasses!  
Going for a boy, girl look here.  For the girl glasses I stamped the top half, then I stamped the bottom again in black. I used a small post it to cover the stamp.

So, a little secret about me is that pretty much every card has a little mistake that I have to fix. Some how it makes it look way better anyway.  So it works out for the better right? :) That's kind of what happened on this card.  I was messing about with an edger ink thingy and it kind of went everywhere, so I chopped the card in half and then angled it on another card base.  I try so hard to be careful, but I'm a little klutzy. Anyway, I really like how it turned out!
