Winter Woodland Wonders Week - Day 5

September 22, 2017



Hi, it's Caryn here kicking off a week of Winter Woodland Wonders inspiration!  This set is packed full of cute festive critters and makes scene-building a breeze!

I started with a cream card base and cut a panel using the larges of the Double Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments.  I blended my background using Distress Oxide inks and then splattered a little shimmer spray on it for some subtle texture.


I stamped the robin, polar bear and trees in New Moon Dye Ink and coloured with Copics and added a few details here and there with Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard.  Finally I stamped the sentiment in black and popped my die cut pieces onto the card using foam tape.

Winter Woodland Wonders Week - Day 4

September 21, 2017



Hi Everyone! Ashley here sharing a few tips using the new Winter Wonderland Wonders stamp set and dies. I love creating layered scenes and I'm going to share how easy it is with you today!


To create my card I started by cutting a piece of Post it Tape in the shape of a hill. You can free form cut this or use a die like Picket Fence. I like to add a piece of copy paper to the side of the tape I want to mask so I have great coverage on my card. Next, lay the mask on your card surface and add ink. Tip: concentrate the ink close to the mask and then fade it out. Move your mask up our card and turn it slightly, layering a background of hills. I created 3 hills but you can created as many as you'd like!


Next, stamp a tree at the top of your hill. This adds fun depth and interest. Next, stamp and die cut the animals you want in your scene. I chose the bear, bunny and deer. Aren't they cute?

Place the animals on each hill, varying their position on the card. Tip: put the animals below the hill line for a more realistic look. 


Finally, stamp the sentiment and add sequins, patterned paper or any other embellishment you'd like. 

Tip: when I find a layout like this that I like, I often repeat it. HERE is another card I created using the layered scene. 

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you create!

Winter Woodland Wonders Week - Day 3

September 20, 2017




Hello!  Amy K. here with a layered Christmas shaker card that is full of glittery fun!
It was time to get out my coarse "chunky" Martha Stewart glitter for a winter wonderland scene.

Winter Wonderland Wonders


Using the Winter Wonderland Wonders stamp set and coordinating Winter Wonderland Wonders Elle-ments, I stamped, Copic colored, and die cut my main images.  For my birch tree, I actually stamped it onto some light gray cardstock and did some no line coloring to make it appear like a birch tree.  It's hard to see but I did create layers of snow banks inside my shaker card using the Picket Fence Elle-ments.  My shaker card was created with the help of the Sweet Scallops Elle-ments.

Little extras were adding the white dots to my images using a white pigment pen.  It gives that perfect little touch!

Merry Flowers Week - Day 5

September 15, 2017



Hi Everyone! Ashley here sharing Merry Flowers. Sometimes Christmas crafting is a good time to be reminded to keep it simple. That can be hard, right? In today's card I only used 6 Copic colors and NO shading. I love coloring like anyone else but every once in a while it's okay to slow down and stick to the basics. ;)


I started my card with the beautiful flowers from Merry Flowers. I colored them with red, green and light blue. Any shade of those colors you have on hand will work! Next, I added the deer from Winter Woodland Wonders, The deer is only colored with tan, blue and light pink. That's it!


I finished the card with the sentiment from Merry Flowers, mounted on patterned paper and added twine.

Thanks for stopping by!


Merry Flowers Week - Day 4

September 14, 2017



Hey everyone, it's Heather Campbell here!  I'm super excited to be here today sharing a project using the new Merry Flowers stamp set.

I adore this little mini stamp set!  These flowers are so wonderful and they completely remind me of my personal decorating Christmas style!

For my project I decided to make some tags!  I simply never have enough tags at Christmas and I thought this stamp would be perfect!
I die cut some tags in white cardstock using the new Shaker tags dies.  Then, I stamped and colored in each of the Merry Flower bouquets.  I looped some ribbon and tie it with Cherry Avery Elle twine (I LOVE THIS STUFF)

Simple and elegant and I love how it turned out!
It's hard to see but I colored in around the flowers with my lightest blue Copic ink.  Then, I gradually faded the colors so the bottom of the tag is white!

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  Have a lovely day!
XOXO,
Heather

Hello lovelies,

Katie here today with you to share a bit of inspiration with the Merry Flowers stamp set and coordinating die.


The large floral image featured in this stamp set is absolutely stunning.  I stamped the flowers twice onto white card stock and colored the images with Copic markers.  Instead of coloring the centers of the flowers with markers, I added drops of glue with a glue pen and sprinkled the centers with gold glitter.


I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white card stock, mounted it with gold card stock and adhered it at an angle onto a black note card.  I adhered the two floral clusters on either side of the sentiment.  I love the contrast between the florals and the black card stock and the touches of gold lends a festive feel!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  
Katie

A HUGE THANK YOU!

This week we are featuring our Merry Flowers stamp and die set.  This is a lovely set at a great price point!  I have linked an intro video to the set below.  We hope that you enjoy the projects our fabulous design team are going to showcase throughout this week. Check out the gorgeous card that Yainea has created below!!!  x- Jamie


 

"Hello and happy Monday!

It's Yainea here and today I'm sharing an elegant Christmas card featuring the gorgeous Christmas Flowers stamps and coordinating dies.

Even when my usual style is cheery and cute, every year I love to create something more classic and elegant so when I saw this stamp set Í knew it would be perfect for that.

I started with a piece of patterned paper from the Neutral Collection to add a nice but simple background to my card and then I used several Ditress inks to color a rectangular panel in red with an ombrè effect.


These flowers are perfect for coloring but I decided to stamp them with embossing ink and heat emboss them using Pure White Fine embossing powder. I used the same technique to stamp the sentiment on the red panel.
Finally, I put everything together, using liquid glue and dimensional adhesive and placed a grey stripe of paterned paper, also from the Neutral Collection, between the red stripe and the background.

As a little finishing touch, I added some sparkling to the flowers with my Wink of Stella pen and a bunch of adhesive pearls.


I hope you like my project for today and feel inspired to create some Christmas cards, if you are like me, it's never too soon to start! haha
Thank you so much for stopping by!! Have a nice day :)"

Holiday Bouquet Week - Day 4

September 7, 2017



Hi Everyone! Ashley here sharing the amazing poinsettia stamp set Holiday Bouquet. One of my favorite holiday traditions is looking at poinsettias at my local nursery. I couldn't wait to bring my favorite poinsettia color to this stamp!


I started the card by coloring and die cutting the main image from Holiday Bouquet. I love the new Shaker Dies and decided to use the circle die to add a tag shape behind the focal image. I kept the background simple with some Distress Stain and sequins. The card was finished with twine and a stamped sentiment. 


Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what YOU create!

Holiday Bouquet Week - Day 3

Hello!  
Amy K. here sharing more inspiration with this week's set Holiday Bouquet.  

Holiday Bouquet


I am sharing my favorite technique right now, watercoloring with Distress Oxides.  I start by smooshing the ink pad onto an acrylic block.  You don't need much!  TIP:  There's no easier and fun way to watercolor than to use white heat embossing.  It makes it so easy to "stay in the lines"!


Holiday Bouquet Technique

I started by white heat embossing onto Bristol Smooth watercolor paper.  This paper makes all the difference in the world when watercoloring and it very inexpensive!  First, I spritzed it lightly with some water and then using Candied Apple and Peeled Paint, I simply used my waterbrush to drop color to the areas of the poinsettias.  I colored the image several times, drying between.  As a last touch, I spritzed the image with shimmer spray and let dry.  My card was assembled using the Diagonal Stripes Elle-ments.  There's something to be said about a white on white holiday card with poinsettias!

Hello, hello!  It's Heather here and today I'm sharing using the gorgeous new Holiday Bouquet stamp set!

I love love love the look of elegant flowers heat embossed on vellum!   This trick is a good one and works well for mass production!

To create my card, I first stamped and heat embossed the images on the vellum.  Then, on the back side, I colored them in with my Copics!  Super easy and it totally has the "wow" factor! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me! 
Have a great one!
XOXO, 

Heather

Holiday Bouquet Week - Day 1

Hi Everyone!  This week we are featuring projects with our fabulous new Holiday Bouquet stamp and die set.  Check them out!  Here is a quick video on the set as well.  Enjoy!!






Hello Avery Elle fans - Caryn here today!  This week on the blog we're sharing our creations featuring a stamp set designed by lil 'ol me - Holiday Bouquet.  Who doesn't love a festive, floral stamp set?  This set isn't JUST for those who celebrate Christmas either.  Poinsettia became a tradition originally in Mexico when a young boy couldn't afford to buy a gift so gathered wild plants from the road side.  It is also the birth flower for the month of December (which happens to be when my birthday is, yay!).

 Anyhoo, on to my card.  I started with a white card base and die cut the Horizontal Stripes Elle-Ments from white and adhered it to the base.  I stamped some of the images from the set in Versamark onto Bristol smooth white card then heat embossed them in white.  To colour the images I used Zig Clean Colour markers and water to give a pretty water-coloured effect.  Finally once all the elements were adhered where I wanted them I stamped the sentiment in Fog dye ink in the centre.

Brring On The Joy Week - Day 5



Hi Everyone! Ashley here today sharing Brring on the Joy!

I started my card by stamping and die cutting all of the images from the stamp set. I do this often when I first get a stamp set to play with the stamps and move them around to see how I can use them. Tip: All the pieces I didn't use are tucked away for another project. ;)



I decided to use this penguin to carry the wreath and lights. He is ready to deck the halls! I placed him on the ice and completed my card with one of the great sentiments from the set. 


Another tip! I like to use my die cuts to create windows on my cards. On this card I used Wonky Stitches Dies.

Wanna see another penguin card I created? Check it out HERE!
