Avery Elle Cheers

I am sharing a card created with Avery Elle Cheers stamp and die cut set.  It is a set can be used to create wine tags and drink tags.

I am sharing another use to create a card.  I stamped the background with the largest image in white on kraft card stock.  The partial die was cut using the wine tag die.


Hope you will like them.  Stop by Avery Elle blog for more inspiration from Kasia.

Avery Elle Laurels

Hello, everyone.  I have two cards made with Avery Elle Laurels stamp set.  Just love this set -- the florals, the fonts and two mirror image branches!

I used a lot of the images from this set for my first card.


The second card is a quick holiday card. NOEL were a combination of letters from Fill in the blank dies.  It were cut with gold foil card stock. I stamped the two mirror image branches and applies some red glitter glue.

Hope you will like them.  Stop by Avery Elle blog for more inspiration from Kasia.

Poppy Stamp WCMD Blog Hop

For my Paper Crafts Magazine WCMD blog hop.  Please click here.

1013 World Cardmaking Day Badge

Happy World Card Making Day! I am excited to share another card with you on WCMD.  I am joining the fun of Poppy Stamp blog hop today to celebrate WCMD.  I used two dies for this CAS card.  No stamping, gasp!  I die cut the fluffy feather out of white card stock and gold polka dotted vellum.  I have some of these gold color glitter sticker beads for awhile and did not get a chance to use it.  It seems the perfect embellishment for this card.


Please be sure to leave comments as you go because there are hidden prizes along the way.  You have until midnight US EST on October 10 to leave comments.  Winners will be announced on Friday, October 11.  Four random winners will be selected from comments left among all the above blogs to win one of the four dies.

Your next stop is Diane Barney.

Paper Crafts Magazine WCMD blog hop


Good morning!  Are you getting ready for the World Card Making Day?  I am super excited to join all the winners from last year'sWorld Card Making Day for a blog hop to celebrate the start of a new WCMD.  It was such a happy surprise to get email from Holly that I was one of the winners.

I entered a few cards last minute.  I had a few ideas in my head but did not have time to execute them.  It was until last a couple days, I decided I have to try it.  It is just so worth the try. So friends, just go ahead and realize your ideas.

I was lucky to be one of the winner in the Thank you category last year with a stamped one layer card.  So I have more stamped one layer Thank you cards to share today.  I used Avery Elle Laurels and Winter Wreath stamp sets for my card sets.  CAS is my go to style and stamping is my favorite.  I changed up the color of the winter wreath and sentiments a little bit for each cards.






Here is the whole set.  I like to have simple and one layer thank you cards ready.


Are you starting making cards for WCMD?  If you are still thinking, just go head and start!  Use your favorite technique and unique idea and design that has been zooming in your head. You might be one of the winners.

Happy Birthday, FSS


I am joining the fun and celebrating the very first birthday of Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  I used two fun sets Life of the Party and Everyday Expressions to make my card. I love the bubble image with word PARTY.  It was stamped in black and colored with copic markers.  Some Studio Calico wood veneers were coated with gold ink and adhered.

10 minutes Craft Dash



I am joining the fun of 10 minutes Craft Dash.  I am a slow crafter.  I usually spent a lot over every single detail.  So this is really challenge for me.  Before I started, I already spent quite a lot time thinking about the design and how to save time. I picked a few Ikat images to stamp the background for my card. One is a long border image.  It helps to cut down the time a lot.  Then I used a few Ikat addition filler image to add the green color pattern.  The sentiment was a partial die cut with JJ's Fill in the blank word die.  Did you notice the little holes on the die?  They are perfect for aligning the top and bottom clear plastic plate to partial die cut.  The most time I spent was using my craft knife to trim off the partial die.


Thanks for stopping by and go to 10 minutes Craft Dash for more inspiration!
