Christmas Kids Week - Day 4

September 19, 2019



Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing Christmas Kids. This is such a fun, joyful stamp set. Let's take a peek...


 I created this card by stamping and die cutting the large image from the stamp set. This was so much fun to color! Next, I stamped and die cut the snow piles for the top of the tree. These are such fun details that really bring the stamp to life.


Next, I blended the background and added a die cut frame. To finish the card I added a sentiment from Polar Playtime.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Kids Week - Day 1

September 16, 2019




Hey there, Caryn here today with a card featuring the festive and fun Christmas Kids Stamp set.  this is so fun to colour and I love the little extra touches you can add such as the piles of snow on the tree.


I started with a landscape A2 card and stamped the snow flake cluster from the set onto it as a background.  I then stamped the sentiment over the top of this. I die cut the frame using the Dotted Frame dies from the red pinstripe paper from the Holiday Collection Paper Pack.  I added a strip of snowfall paper along the bottom to ground the image once it was coloured and die cut. Everything was adhered using foam tape.


To finish I added some glitter to the snow and gave the little girl a pom pom for her her bobble hat!!!

Seasonal Simple Sentiments Week - Day 4

September 12, 2019




Hey all! It's Heather here sharing a card using the new Seasonal Simple Sentiments stamp set.

To create my card, I stamped, die cut and colored in images from Snow Much Fun stamp and die set. Then, I accented the images with the Holiday Ephemera pack and the Holiday 6x6 paper pad

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

Seasonal Simple Sentiments Week - Day 3

September 11, 2019



Hey there, Caryn here today bringing you a card featuring Seasonal Simple Sentiments and some of the other fabulous new products from the Fall 2019 Fall release.  This card was quite quick to put together thanks to the Holiday Ephemera pack - I just LOVE it!


I started with a white A2 card base and adhered one of the frames from the ephemera pack using Avery Elle liquid glue.  I then added one of the snow globe images from the pack using foam tape.
As a focal image I stamped, coloured and die cut the skate from Holiday Skates twice along with the addition of a bow from Alpine Christmas.


To finish I chose the Let It Snow sentiment from Seasonal Simple Sentiments stamped onto one of the co-ordinating dies from the matching Elle-ments and added a snowflake from the ephemera pack.

Seasonal Simple Sentiments Week - Day 2

September 10, 2019




Hi there! Elena here with a card featuring a few sets from our newest release.



I starting out by choosing the sentiment, from Seasonal Simple Sentiments, and then built my scene around it. I don't usually do it that way, but it was a fun challenge! I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a black banner flag, to really make it stand out.

To start decking those halls, I stamped and die-cut the green garland (x2) and hanging star from Cocoa Stand. To make the swagged garland look continuous, I simple snipped off one of the red bows and overlapped them. I adhered these near the top of a Wonky-Stitches die-cut panel.


I brought in a few cute critters to help with the decorating! They are all from Falling For You, but the little fox and hedgehog have undergone some adjusting to make them hold the Christmas decorations.

It's not very complicated, and a fun way to be able to stretch your stamps:



First, ink up the fox, but wipe off the jar portion of the image. You will lose the tips of his paws. Don't worry about that for now!



Next, die-cut the image. (ps, if you're confused by the little bit of stamped jar in this picture - it's because I loved the idea so much that I repeated it for a card you'll see in the future!) 

Then, with a pencil, draw in the missing paws, and also trace a line to guide your fussy-cutting. I tried to keep the same width of white-outline that the die-cutting would provide. The paws were then traced using a copic-friendly black pen. That's all there is to it!

I hope you are inspired to look at some of your non-Christmas stamps in a new way - I had so much fun dreaming this up!

♥.

Seasonal Simple Sentiments Week - Day 1

September 9, 2019




Hey there, this is Nicky with you today and I'm sharing a card that highlights the new and essential sentiment set called Seasonal Simple Sentiments.  I have used this set in conjunction with the new Santa Bear stamp set.  Also included in the card are snowy hills created using Dotted Borders Die and all framed out using the Postage Stamp Die.



This card started with a background panel that was trimmed to A2 size and was created from a subtle beige with white snowflake design that is found in the new 6 x 6 'The Holiday Collection' paper pad.  I die cut two hills with the borders die and ink blended the edges to antique them for my mildly retro look.   I then die cut the postage stamp frame and recessed the hills within it, adhering together on the reverse and then apply to the background panel which in turn was affixed to a sturdy 110lb white cardstock base.



On Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock I stamped my images from Santa Bear using Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil.  I watercolour painted everything using Kuretake Zigs in Oatmeal, Mid Brown, Mid Gray, Green, Wine Red and Light Pink.  Images were die cut, backed with foam tape and adhered into position.

On some slate gray cardstock I stamped the sentiments using Versamark Ink and heat embossed in super fine white embossing powder.  Each sentiment strip was backed with more foam tape and applied at playful angles.



Time for the finishing touches which basically included using Stickles in 'Crystal' to add a glittered finish to Santa Bear's hat, the greenery behind him, the tree stump he sits upon and the shadow under the bunny waiting his turn.  Finally I used white Nuvo Drops to drop in some dimensional snowfall.

Thanks so much for coming by to read about this card today, I will be back before too long with something new to share.

Holiday Skates Week - Day 3

September 4, 2019



Hello!  'Tis the season!  Amy here sharing a card using Holiday Skates for a rustic flare.  

I wanted to hang my skates on some shiplap.  I created my shiplap in the background using 1/2" strips of white cardstock and swiping the edges in Silver Fox Avery Elle Pigment Ink.  I stacked them up on my notecard and added a white frame from Plus Frame Elle-ments.

Holiday Skates

I colored my images with Copics from Holiday Skates and die cut using the coordinating Holiday Skates Elle-ments.  I arranged the images across my shiplap background and adhered.  As finishing touches, I added the sentiment in black ink and some Crystal Stickles to the holly berries.

Holiday Skates Week - Day 2

September 3, 2019




Happy Tuesday everyone and hello to Holiday Skates Week here on the Avery Elle Blog.  It's Caryn here today and I'm very excited to share a card I've created using this set.  When I designed this set I pictured in my head all the gorgeous, festive holiday decor you see on Pinterest of old vintage boots and skis adorned with festive foliage hanging in hallways or on doors.  And this card is just what I pictured with the set!  I've also created a short video too showing how this card came together (see below)!


The Holiday Ephemera pack came in very useful with the border and the perfect sentiment banner!
I used the small snow flurry stamp with Mint To Be ink to create a "halo" effect for my background behind my main focal image.


Once I'd stamped, coloured and die cut all my pieces I arranged them how I wanted and assembled them using foam tape and Avery Elle Liquid Glue.


To finish I picked one of the sentiments from the Holiday Ephemera pack and then added Glossy Accents to the blades of the skates and the candy canes and berries for some added bling!

Holiday Skates Week - Day 1



Hello friends!

Katie here with a card to share with you featuring the festive Holiday Skates clear stamps. Ice skates are such a beautiful icon of the winter season, and I love all the thoughtful extra images included in this set to make the skates extra special.


To create the card, first I die cut the Let it Snow Elle-ments die from a piece of iridescent glitter card stock. I love glitter card stock because it lets me have all the sparkle with none of the mess.  I die cut the inner dome from water color card stock and added some Distress Oxide inks in Tattered Rose and Scattered Straw.  I also stamped the snowflakes from the Holiday Skates stamp set in Tattered Rose ink before adding the sentiment in black ink. 


I stamped, colored and die cut the skates and accent images and arranged them onto the water color panel. Once I was happy with the placement, I secured the pieces to a notecard using tape runner and Avery Elle's liquid adhesive. The liquid glue has the precision of a pen making it perfect for adding the right amount of adhesive to small die cuts.

Thanks for skating by today!
Katie
