Happy Dad’s Day!

Hola! Today I am just popping in to share a couple of cards I made for Father’s Day. ๐Ÿ™‚

First up, I have this one using fun Avery Elle goodies:

I have had the AE set The Man for what feels like forever, but I use it, so I keep it. ๐Ÿ™‚ The others are the SEA-Prise and the Grand Photo Die (this one is on SALE HERE.).

I thought this one turned out fun with some blending and some foam tape and boom! ๐Ÿ™‚ Mailed!

Next, I have this Plaidarific card I made using Taylored Expressions. I used Caps Lock Dad, Dadisms and the recently released Plaid Layering Stencil.

I do love the Plaid Layering Stencil. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s all from me today. Hope your weekend is a good one! ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Jill

A handful of cards today!

Happy Sunday! Today I’m just here to share a smattering of cards I’ve made recently. I thought I’d just share them all here at once. Many of these products are still available over at Ellen Hutson , but some were either a promotion or they are retired. I always think you can likely find a substitute if you’re interested in using an idea here as a launching pad. ๐Ÿ™‚

First up, I have a couple Avery Elle cards! ๐Ÿ™‚

This first one is ready for Father’s Day this year–perfect for my hubby! So shhhhh don’t show him yet. ๐Ÿ™‚ It uses the following from Avery Elle:ย Avery Elle Swell Stamp, Burst Elle-Ments, Avery Elle Sea-Prise! Stamps, Avery Elle Celebraytion Stamps (this one for the second card).

(The Happy Father’s Day is from well loved, but much older AE set.)

I colored everything with Copic Markers. The background I stamped with two different inks and pieced it allllll together. So fun how it turned out.

Next up, I created this one with the Burst Elle-Ments from Avery Elle… a long time FAVORITE die! (I used this same die to create the “porthole” above.)

I used pretty much the same Avery Elle goodies here, mixing it up a bit to create a card for our son. This sentiment below is from Avery Elle’s Celebraytion Stamps.

Next up, I have a couple cards using goodies from the Stamp Market: Hello Stencil, Leaves Stencil.

For both of these, I blended on background colors over these fun stencils and then added the Hi and Hellos on top. ๐Ÿ™‚

I like this repeating hello in just black and white, but I think coloring it could be super fun too!

Next up, I created a couple Spring Hi Cards. ๐Ÿ™‚ These are perfect to pop in the mail!

I always like the yellow and green blend…it never fails me. ๐Ÿ™‚

I used some Distress Inksย and some Distress Oxide Inks.

I had a lot of fun making these cards and I hope you too have some time to create soon!

So fun!ย Here are all the products that are available now and links again:

Avery Elle: Swell Stamp, Burst Elle-Ments, ย Sea-Prise! Stamps, Celebraytion Stamps.

The Stamp Market: Hello Stencil, Leaves Stencil.

That’s all I have for today! Now I am heading outside as we have unusually and VERY unseasonable warm weather here today….before three days of snow. Yikes! ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care– Jill ๐Ÿ™‚
