November Release Week - Merry & Bright

November 3, 2012

Welcome back to Day 3 of Avery Elle's November Release Week.  If you have just stumbled upon this blog, you may want to go to this post here to start at the beginning of the festivities.  Over the next 3 days we will be featuring projects made by our AMAZING design team and showcasing our latest release.  We have 4 new stamp sets that will be available for purchase in our store, www.averyelle.com, on November 5th.  Don't forget to check the bottom of this post for our latest giveaway to celebrate the festivities.

Today we are featuring a new 4" x 6" clear photopolymer stamp set called Merry & Bright that will retail for $15.  This set provides fun word art for the holiday season.  Use these images to create a variety of fun and graphic looks.  We tested every major manufacturer to find what we consider to be the best clear stamps in the industry.  We find our photopolymer stamps are clearer, require little conditioning, stamp smoother and crisper using various ink types.  Even better, our high quality cute stamps are made in the USA. The Merry image measures:  2 3/4" x 2 1/2"; The Christmas sentiment measures:  1 3/4" x 1/4"

Sentiment combinations include: "Have a Very Merry Birthday", " Have a Bright Christmas", "Merry & Bright", "Merry Christmas", "Have a Merry Christmas" 




Be sure to check out what the following members of our design team have done with this fabulous new set on their blogs below.

I like to make fairly flat cards to mail out to all of our family and friends during the holidays.  For this card, I stamped the main image from our Merry & Bright set onto Ultra Smooth Pure White card stock.  I colored the open letters with a coordinating colored pencil and stamped the bright sentiment.  Of course I had to add some of my favorite twine!!  I sewed the panel onto a piece of patterned paper and attached it to a Cherry heavy card stock base.  I love that the image fills the card and has so much detail.  Easy Peasy!


For this next card I used the same image but placed it behind a Sea Glass card stock panel.  I die cut the scalloped circle to create a frame around the merry ornament.  After stamping the Christmas sentiment I colored the open letters, added twine and some glitter.  After that, the card felt simple yet festive.


Some of you may be wondering about the birthday sentiment included in this set.  As I was creating it, I wanted to make a way for it to be used for more than just the holidays.  By stamping the "a very" sentiment and some of the included star stamps, I created a fun balloon image that is perfect for any birthday!  It is a bit hard to read from the angle of the picture, but the total sentiment reads "A very merry birthday to you".  The "to you" sentiment is from our Fanfare stamp set.  You could also stamp "Have a Very Merry Birthday" using stamps from this set.  I love how the navy blue ink, Fizz and Lemon Grass card stock work together here.

I like how you placed the image behind the blue CS - with the extra pop of color in the open letters. Great idea.
