My Favorite Things - Creative Construction With Blueprints Challenge - Scallops!!

Hello, hello!!

Some of the sweet My Favorite Things peeps and I are using Blueprints Die-Namics for our Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge!!  This month the challenge was to use Blueprints Die-Namics that feature scallops!

I used the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics to create a fun little shaker baby card!  I used the scalloped rectangle die and one of the rectangle dies from the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics to create a scalloped frame.  I’d been dying to use the new Baby Rattle Die-Namics, so I thought this scallops challenge was the perfect opportunity to break it out.  The bow on the rattle was creating using the bow dies from Blueprints 17.  I’m telling  you, no crafter’s collection should be without the Blueprints Die-Namics.  They are universally versatile and absolutely necessary to creating a perfectly executed project!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used to create this card below.

Please click on through to the My Favorite Things Design Blog to see more scalloped inspiration using Blueprints!  And we’d love for you to play along with us!  Get your Blueprints out and get your scallop on!!

That’s it for today, friends!! I’m just a stampin’ fool trying to get ahead!  I sure do appreciate you stopping by – I’ll be back with more stampy goodness very soon!!  Until then, have a great day!

Avery Elle–Punny Pantry!


Happy Fri-YAY!


If it’s Friday, it must be my turn up on the Avery Elle Design Blog!  I’m sharing a project that I created using the new Punny Pantry Stamp Set, and the coordinating Punny Pantry Dies.




Punny Pantry Stamp Set
Punny Pantry Dies
Scalloped Pierced Rectangles Dies
Stoked Dies
Sweet Scallops Dies
New Moon Dye Ink


Okay, if you know me at all, you know that I loves me a good old fashioned pun!  So this set just spoke to me!  It’s chock-a-block full of adorable puns and punny images that will make just about anyone with a sense of humor smile!  I chose the radish from the Punny Pantry Stamp Set to play with.  I did a bit of ink blending, and die cut it out using the Punny Pantry Dies.  I used the new Scalloped Pierced Rectangles Dies to create a frame inside a frame, so that those little black and white polka dots could peek through a bit.  I also die cut a speech bubble from some red card stock using the Stoked Dies, and cut a heart out using the Sweet Scallops Dies.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used above.


Please click on through to the Avery Elle Design Blog for more fabulous inspiration!  You won’t be disappointed!  I’m done for today, although I’m not done in my craft room.  I’ll be stamping my little fingers to the bone in an effort to get ahead.  Sometimes I feel like I’m swimming upstream!  LOL  But it’s what I love to do . . . I’m kinda lucky, I think.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I sure do love it when you do!  Have a great weekend!
