Some fun with Avery Elle!

Hello! Popping in today to share a couple cards I made using some fun new Avery Elle products!

This first one features theΒ  Peek-A-Boo Car with the coordinating die. When I saw this car, I just knew it had to drive over to my house! I mean–eeep!! My son is going to love this car and put everyone in it! ha!!

This cutie driver and passenger is from the AE set Peek-A-Boo Pets and coordinating dies. I mean, that cow and chicken! ha! Too cute!!

For this card, I masked off a piece of Bristol paper and blended on some Distress Oxide and Distress Inks. I think splattered on some water and black paint to give it a little texture. I colored the car and critters with Copic Markers on X-press It Blending Card. So fun!!

(A quick note that X-press It Blending Card is 50% off through tonight, June 9 11:59 PST! Use code blending50 to take advantage! Such a great deal. I’m trying not to buy them out myself! Click HEREΒ for the big pack or for the smaller pack HERE. πŸ™‚ If you’ve never tried this blending card, I cannot recommend it more. I use only two cardstocks to color with Copics, and this is one. It blends like butta! ❀ )

Next up, I switched to watercolor. Watercolor always seems like my go-to for underwater things…Logical, right? πŸ˜‰ This card uses the new Avery Elle set CelebRAYtion! Our son is super in Manta Rays right now, and I knew he’d love this fun set!

I used Distress Inks for the watercolored background on this one after white heat embossing the sentiment and images. I kept it fairly simple from there though. πŸ™‚

Looking forward to giving these fun cards and making more! I also can’t wait to get my hands on a few more things Avery Elle recently released….and let’s be honest, things that were released a couple months back too. Trouble! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your Sunday!

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚

Today: Over At Neat & Tangled!

Happy Friday! Today I’m over at Neat & Tangled again to share my second card as May Guest Designer.Β  Hooray–I so enjoyed making these cards to share! ❀

I’m sharing this card I made with Neat & Tangled’s Birch Leaf Die and No Words, designed by Miriam Prantner. So good, MP! πŸ™‚

This sentiment is a fave of mine for cards like this. I really dislike making sympathy cards, but this sentiment often rings so true for my personal sentiments.

Always a Rainbow!

Hello! Popping in today to share a card I made yesterday in a few moments of Mom time–DAY CRAFTING! What? I know. (Technically, it was early evening but daylight! ha!) I thought the same as I was making it.Β  Ha!

Love this little turtle from Lawn Fawn so very much and I had to use him!

Eeep –he’s the cutest! I used the sentiment from this set and another to say exactly what I wanted!

I love the addition of the felt hearts. Taylored Expressions felt is my super fave!

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is Pet Love and I thought I’d join in the fun! I haven’t been able to play along in quite some time, so I seized the opportunity. My brother and I had a teeny pet turtle when we were kids. We ended up letting him go, but we really liked him while we had him briefly. Check it out HERE:

I had to make this one for a friend and get it in the mail–STAT! πŸ™‚

Lawn Fawn goodies: Get Well Before ‘nΒ  Afters (and dies HERE), Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters, Really Rainbow Petite Paper ( ❀ ), and Valentine Borders.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Lawn Fawnatics for keeping the challenges coming! πŸ™‚

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚
