Avery Elle Inks and A Walk Down Memory Lane blog

Hey there! Just popping in before the weekend... I'm over at A Walk Down Memory Lane blog today. I'm sharing a little review on Avery Elle pigment inks. I got to try them out and wanted to share with you!

The stamped results are pretty great... I am definitely a fan! Also on the docket, new My Favorite Things stamps are in the AWDML store! YES!

Thanks for stopping in today. I am in the process of packing up my life and moving house in the next two weeks. It's going to get crazy over here, but I promise I will be back...eventually!

Top Dog Dies Leaf Mosaic die cut

Hello there! I'm sharing this NEW gorgeous die cut with you today from Top Dog Dies september release. It's a full size A2 die cut and has lovely details. 

I made a fast and simple card but the die cut is so stunning that it looks hard to make. But it wasn't. I watercolored some paper in fall colours and then die cut it out. So simple.

I added a sentiment strip made with some vellum and adhered it along the back. I popped up the die cut with some foam adhesive to help give it more dimension. I also added it to a beautiful card base from using their Curious Metallic card stock. It's some of my favorite card stock!

Ok, that's it for me today! Happy happy tuesday!

MFT Card Design Superstar Contest!

I've been trying and trying to get my act together to join the MFT contest that is ending in one day! I ordered some new MFT products (holy cow, they are awesome!) I have visitors in town and I'm in the process of moving, plus my regularly scheduled card making responsibilities still need to be seen to. Needless to say its been hard to find some time, but I did it! I actually completed a card! Only one, but still... I'm not going to let that get me down cause I got it done. And now I have proof in a photo!

I started with using the new Brick Wall Cover-up and die cut it out of two different colours of brown card stock. I stamped over the orangeish color with a background stamp and then glued them all back together over a card stock base. I then die cut the front of the card twice with the new Stitched Interactive window. Which I love!

Inside I built a little scene using the London Mouse collection (stamps and matching dies). This set! OH! It just steals my heart. I made a little collage. I did some layering with foam adhesive as well.

You can see here from the front, my little bear poking out. I love his face.

 And here is the front with a few flaps open.

The ending challenge was to get good photos without my external flash (I'm out of batteries) and while its pitch black outside (it's midnight here!) But it worked out. And now I must go to bed.

That's it! If you are interested in checking out the challenge be sure to click HERE. There is one day left!! I am thinking regardless of what happens, I'm a superstar for even getting it done. Jill Dewey Hawkins... this one is for you ;)
