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. 🙂

First up, I have a couple Avery Elle cards! 🙂

This first one is ready for Father’s Day this year–perfect for my hubby! So shhhhh don’t show him yet. 🙂 It uses the following from Avery Elle: 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. 🙂

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. 🙂 These are perfect to pop in the mail!

I always like the yellow and green blend…it never fails me. 🙂

I used some Distress Inks 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! Here are all the products that are available now and links again:

Avery Elle: Swell Stamp, Burst Elle-Ments,  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! 🙂

Take care– Jill 🙂

Today, I am sharing this sweet little number using two new stencils: Buffalo Checked Stencil and Autumn Stencil. This cutie sentiment is from Face Off so fun! 🙂

New Blender Brushes from Taylored Expressions!

I hope you enjoyed my post yesterday to share the news for the new Taylored Expressions Blender Brushes! I cannot stop blending since I received them!  ❤ And you all are clearly as excited as me, because the Blender Brushes were so popular and sold out the first day! The great news is, they will be restocked as soon as possible, so hold steady!

Just a quick review again: The bristles are white, so you can see the color you put on them, the handles are COLORED in rainbow colors!! AND there is a Turning Caddy to store them!!  🙂 Check it all out over at Taylored Expressions now! Yay! ❤

I’m very serious when I say I have been ink blending up a STORM lately! 🙂  Here’s another card I made using them:

I colored the bees with Copic Markers and die cut them out. I hear embossed the Dizzy Dots background in white and ink blended using different blues after that. When I finally stopped myself from blending (ha!), I die cut the background into hexagons for a fun bee backdrop! ❤

Bzzzzzz! This was a fun one to make, for sure!! 🙂

You can find all my supplies and links to the Taylored Expressions Shop below.
