Avery Elle Summer Blog Hop + video!

Hello!!

Welcome to the Avery Elle Summer Blog Hop!! There are a lot of new amazing products and all the DT is featuring them along the hop. I hope you are enjoying it!!


I have two cards to share with you using the new Ribbit Ribbit and That Bites sets. And I also made a video showing you how I made my ombré vellum backgrounds and first card with Ribbit Ribbit:


I used Clean Color Real Brush markers to color my scene and I added fun texture to my card with felt clouds and lily pads. I think it's a great birthday card for Spring or Summer and I hope you like it!

Warts up?

I used the same vellum technique on my second card, using the new That Bites stamps and dies. I really love this sentiment with that fish, it makes me giggle!

That Frown

This time I added a bit of sparkle with some sequins and colored cardstock waves above the vellum piece. The fish is colored with Clean Color Real Brush markers too.
