Avery Elle Be Jolly and GIVEAWAY

Hello, dear blog friends! Today, I have a card and a tutorial. I used Heather's super cute Be Jolly stamp set on this card. Somehow this little snowman reminds of Calvin and Hobbes. I don't know why. I just feel this little snowman is mischievous.

Making tutorial has been on my craft to-do list for a long time. I finally got to make one last weekend. Hope you will enjoy my glitter snow man card and the tutorial!

Here is the step-by-step photo tutorial. I added notes to the pictures. I would like some suggestion about the photo tutorial, so pretty please...

Please leave a comment regarding one of the following for a chance to win a $15 Avery Elle gift card.
1. Do you like the photo collage or individual photos with text in between to explain the steps? Did the photos explain the step? What else do you think I should include?
2. Do I need to include more notes about certain steps in the picture or in the post?
3. Share a link of your favorite photo tutorial.

I will draw one random comment from the qualified comments for a chance of $15 Avery Elle gift card on Friday, Sept 20th!

Thanks for stopping by,

Avery Elle Look Up

Hi blog friends, with my kids back to school and things get to a normal routine. I am hoping to get more projects done.

Today I have a card to share. I used newly released stamp set Look Up and Heather's fun paper on this card. The stars and the sentiment were heat embossed in gold on vellum and machine stitched on patterned paper card front. It is a super easy and fast card if you need something in a hurry.

Avery Elle Fall Release Blog Hop

It is time for fun and inspiration with Avery Elle blog hop. Did you see the release previews at Avery Elle blog for the last a couple days?  I know you will be as excited as me to see the fun stamps and die cuts.  It is ginormous and fabulous release with 12 new stamp sets, 14 new die sets, 8 new ink pad and a new 6x6 patterned paper pad!!!

If you came from fabulous Karolyn Loncon then you are on the right track. If not, you can start your  hop with Avery Elle blog.

Today, I have a few cards to share with the uber trendy and cute Joy to the world stamp and die set.

I did two-tone stamping with Cherry and Vino inks on the first card. Gold bow tie was die cut with Finished Frames ELLE-ment die set. The banner from More Stories stamp set was stamped with Silver Fox ink and cut out. One stripe of paper from the new release Everyday Collection was added to the top of the card.

I am so excited about the globe stand and decided to try a gold embossed look on the second card. Some stars cut from vellum were added.

You know I can't stop and had to use the Santa and reindeer image. I stamped the images and sentiment on self-adhesive cork and cut out with Finished Frames die set and adhere to cherry card base.

Avery Elle Surf's Up

Happy Tuesday! Hop in quickly to share a happy fun card with ya! I used Avery Elle Surf's Up stamp set and some yummy patterned paper to make this card. I stamped the back side of the palm  tree in mint to be first before stamping the line image in black. Then I colored the center of the trees a little with markers.
The sun and the camper van were paper pieced.
