Avery Elle Guest Desinger: Love Notes

Today I'm back with another awesome set released at Avery Elle. It's called Love Notes and it's absolutely amazing! It's probably one of my new favorites for sure.

I wanted to make a one dimensional card (minus the sequins of course) and this set is perfect for the job. This set is ideal for lovey dovey, Valentine's Day card. It's definitely a set I will return to over and over again. 

Make sure to stop by the Avery Elle shop and see all of their new releases. I need every stamp set released this month. They are just that good! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by. It always means so much! :)

Little Tangles Guest Designer

Hi! Today I'm guest designing with Little Tangle's Challenge Blog! The challenge theme was to create a project using the colors white and gold. I had so much fun with this challenge! :) Here's my take!

I first took a piece of white cardstock and embossed it with a polka dot folder. I then ran it through my Big Shot after with a bracket die and adhered it to the card with foam dots. Next, I die cut and glittered a snowflake. The stamp set used above is Simple Christmas.  For the wreath and sentiment, I stamped it in VersaMark Ink, gold embossing powder and heat set it. I fussy cut the wreath and tied some gold baker's twine to the top. For a finishing touch, I added some gold sequins from Neat and Tangled and rounded the corners!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I can't wait to see your take on the challenge!!

**This will also be entered into Cas-ual Friday's Out on a Limb Challenge! :)

Avery Elle December Blog Hop

Hi there! It's been forever since I posted.  I've been on vacation but I'm finally back! I'm guest designing this month for Avery Elle and my oh my, they have some awesome products up their sleeves this month! Let's just get to it!

Today I'm showcasing one of their stamp sets, Circle It. 

For the first card, I wanted to make something that could be used for any time of celebration. I thought this would be perfect for New Years. 

For my second card, I wanted to make a Christmas one of course! This sentiment is absolutely perfect! 

So there's my cards and I hope you go on to the other blogs to see theirs as well :)
