Quirky Christmas Week - Day 1

October 15, 2018

Hey there, Caryn here today with a collection of cards I created using a fun set called Quirky Christmas.  This set of 4 cards were whipped up in no time using just a few supplies and go to show that you can create very different looks using just one stamp set and some essential dies.  Each card starts with a 4 bar sized white base with a simple, festive colour palette and a few enamel dot embellishments to finish.  I gathered a few fabulous Avery Elle dies, Cherry Pigment Ink and New Moon Dye Ink.  I picked a fresh, green card stock from my stash to complement the red for a traditional Christmas feel.  However, ANY colour scheme would work equally well!

I laid all five of the tree stamps from the set onto my MISTI stamping tool and inked them all up together using Cherry pigment ink.  I stamped 3 times to get a good, even coverage.  I then ran them through my Gemini Junior die cutting machine and die cut them all at one - what a time saver! The supplies for each card are listed under the photos.

And here's a look at all 4 cards together.  I plan to create sets like these in different colours for my holiday cards this year - I might actually get a few sent out too!!!

Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals Week - Day 5

October 12, 2018

Hi Everyone! It's Ashley here, back again with my favorite set of this release Polar Peek a Boo Pals

To create my card I started by coloring a few of my favorite animals. 

Next, hand trimmed a hill and added glitter. Then I stamped the sentiment and added a little ink to the background of my card.

Finally, I assembled all of the pieces and added twine. 

I love this cute and simple card! Thanks for joining me!


Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals Week - Day 4

October 11, 2018

Hey all!  It's Heather here with a fun card using the new Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals stamp and die set.

I don't know about you but I'm loving the Peek-A-Boo Pals series.  These little critters are just too much fun to play with!

To create my card, I stamped and die cut the critters and their coordinating hooves/paws/wings.  I also stamped and die cut some of the add on accessories.  Then, I colored everything in and on the bulbs around my moose, I added glitter and glossy accents.

To assemble, I ink blended a background and then popped that behind a snowdrift which I mounted underneath a Wonky Scalloped Frames die. Finally, placed all of the images and stamped a sentiment and mounted it onto a A2 card base. 

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

Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals Week - Day 3

Katie - Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals

Hello friends,

Katie here with a card to share with you using the Polar Peek a Boo Pals stamp set and the Three Stars Elle-ments die.  The Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals set is just adorable!!  It features animals that are in their element in the colder wintery months, and it's among my favorite from the Fall Release!

For my card, I stamped and colored the animals using Copic markers and created a glitter shaker background for the Pals. I die cut the Three Star Elle-ments die from a panel of white card stock and stamped the sentiment in black ink.  Behind each star, I blended Distress Oxide ink in red, yellow and green and added a pinch of glitter before sealing up the shaker with acetate and foam tape. 

I tucked each of the Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals to each star and adhered a few flat star sequins as a finishing touch.


Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with Avery Elle!


Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals Week - Day 2

Elena - Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals

Hi there!

Elena here, with the adorable moose from Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals:

I started out by stamping, die-cutting and coloring the images. That moose is my fave! I gave him a present to hold (from Brring On The Joy) and used a square die to cut into the Snow Tags snowflake.

Once I had the focal image put together, I set it aside to work on the rest of the card. I rubbed blue ink to cover a Wonky Stitches layer, and stamped the greeting (from A Merry Little Christmas) at the bottom. I love the whimsical nature of that sentiment, and I thought it worked so well with the kooky moose (all of those tangled up lights!)

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!


Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals Week - Day 1

October 8, 2018

Hello!  This is Nicky back with you today sharing my latest card using the newest Avery Elle release.  This card features 'Polar Peekaboo Pals' in combination with 'Three Stars Die Set'.

To start with I took a panel of white cardstock and die cut it using the new Three Stars Die which makes 3 openings in one pass through your die cutting machine and leaves a stitched edge.   I then stamped and heat embossed the silver sentiment.   I took another panel and ink blended in grey and added the snowflakes by hand with a Uniball Signo White gel pen.  I applied the star panel over the blended panel lifted up on foam tape and then applied it to a 110lb white cardstock base.

I stamped out my images onto Bristol Smooth cardstock using Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black.  I watercolour painted them using Kuretake Zigs and highlighted some points with the Uniball Signo White gel pen again.

I die the images and applied them tucked into the scene with dimensional foam tape.  The final embellishment was the addition of a few die cut silver glitter cardstock stars.

I do hope you enjoyed my card and I will see you next time.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Have a great weekend!

Fireside Week - Day 4

October 4, 2018

Hi Everyone! Ashley here today sharing Fireside. Let's get right to the card...

I started my card by die cutting Let it Snow and backed the die with blue card stock. Next, I stamped, die cut and colored the fireplace and garland. 

I created a fun background with Distress Ink and adhered all the pieces together. I finished the card with the sentiment embossed on a banner. 

Thanks for stopping by today!


Fireside Week - Day 3

October 3, 2018

Hello!  Amy K. here with a card using the Fireside stamps and coordinating dies.  I thought I would focus on showing off the wreath image from this set.  


TIP:  One thing about a "coloring" set that I get stuck on sometimes is that I want to Copic color everything.  While I enjoy coloring, adding color using Distress Inks over heat embossed images is always amazing to me!  

All 3 wreaths were white heat embossed and using Twisted Citron and Candied Apple Distress Inks for the bows.  This TIP is such an easy and quick technique to add colors to your projects!  I arranged my wreaths, added the bows, and some gems.  For the sentiment, I stamped Warm Wishes directly on the cardstock with a raised sentiment.  To finish, a few light turquoise gems were added!

Fireside Week - Day 2

October 2, 2018

Hi!  This is Nicky with you today sharing a card I made using 'Fireside' the wonderful new stamp set from Avery Elle.

I stamped out all of my images onto Bristol Smooth cardstock using Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil.  I watercolour painted them using my Kuretake Zigs and then used a Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen to highlight some spots and to make patterns on the individual stockings.

I took an A2 panel of Bristol Smooth and ink blended it with Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Antique Linen and applied the painted elements with varying amounts of dimensional foam tape.

Finally I put the panel into my Misti and I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink and heat embossed in gold.  I attached my panel to the 110lb white cardstock base.  Card complete!

Thanks for stopping by to read today, see you next time!

Fireside Week - Day 1

October 1, 2018

Hey there!  It's Caryn here today sharing a cozy Christmas card featuring the Fireside stamp set and dies.  I wanted the fireplace to be as cozy as possible so to create a country feel I stamped the image onto some wood effect paper and cut it out by hand.  I used a scalpel to cut out the central piece with the fire and popped the wooden fireplace on top to give it some dimension.

I then dressed my fireplace with the wreath and garland by stamping and colouring them with Copics and then die-cutting them before popping them onto the card.  To finish I added some blobs of red glitter glue for some sparkly berries and completed it with a sentiment stamped in Truffle dye ink.
