A Super Cute Peek-A-Boo Coaster Card by Yainea

September 18, 2020



Hello!  While we are getting ready for our next release on Sept 24th I will be featuring some of my favorite Design Team projects from our Summer release.  They are so amazing and they are worth taking a second look!  I cannot wait to show you the 14 stamp sets and 15 die sets that we have coming out on September 24th.   They are sooo good! In the meantime, enjoy this great project by Yainea!

Today I'm showcasing the new Peek-A-Boo Coaster stamps and dies, I love those happy critters! I paired these new products with some oldies to create my scene.


First I colored the background with Distress inks and die cut it using the Ray Elle-ments die. The critters and wagons were colored with alcohol markers and the clouds are from the Cloud Mat Elle-ments die (I love this die so so much!)
The frame is cut out from one of the patterned papers included in the Spring Collection Paper pad.
I hope you like it!

Cute Camping Critters by Elena

Hi there! Check out these cute cards I have for you today.


Camping critters! (Avery Elle new release blog hop)

My first card is a completely 1 layer panel. It took awhile to get the dies to me across the border, so I started playing around with just the stamps. I ink-blended a night sky, and did some masking to build my scene. Everything was colored using copic markers. Only the sentiment was stamped separately and set on top.

For my second card, which is similarly 1 layer for the most part, I wanted to create a daytime look. Only the tent and the sweet bear, but this time, with a little bunny friend, from Santa Bear, and some little butterflies, from Wheelie Great. I added the sentiment as a skinny strip in the middle of the rolling hills, to cut into all of that solid green.

Once I got the dies, I couldn't help but make another couple of cards! This one features another night scene. I hand-cut an oval shape out of green cardstock for the grassy area, making sure to keep the edges jagged so it really looks like grass. Then, I used a blender brush to spread a black-inked sky, keeping the edges lighter and in line with the grassy piece. I added a blue tent, little critters making s'mores and fireflies in the night sky.

This last card is the simplest. I really wanted to feature the raccoon on a card, I love him holding the little lantern! I added the heart-in-speech-bubble image from Wheelie Great, as well as a few mushrooms from Falling For You. The Star Scene die provided the perfect backdrop.

Adorable Unicycle Cards by Elena

Hi there! Elena here, with a few cards using the Unicycle stamp set from the current Avery Elle release. I might be biased because I drew these cuties, but I just think they bring the party!

Unicycles! (for Avery Elle)



 My 1st card is a 1-layer panel. I got the stamps in the mail and was too impatient to wait for the dies! There was a bit of masking involved but it wasn't difficult. I kind of love all of the images from the stamp set on this one card! They look like a birthday parade coming through... I backed the main panel onto a piece of polka-dotted paper from The Holiday Collection paper pad.

Unicycles! (for Avery Elle)



My next card uses the dies (yay!) I used the extra little die that cuts a slit into the rhino's body so that you could tuck the cake or the present in there. I gave him a balloon too, and a party hat, and sat him on his unicycle. I threw confetti all around and framed him out using the Burst die. I finished off the card with a sentiment from another new set, Peek-A-Boo Coaster.

Unicycles! (for Avery Elle)



I went a lot softer with the color palette on this last card. I used the tower-o-monkeys (hee hee) and gave them the pennant flag to hold. I dotted the sky with puffy clouds from Cupids and gave them a little bee friend (from Beary Good Friends) to look at.

I hope you like my cards for today! Thanks for stopping by!

Tropical Bouquet With Caryn

Hello!  While we are getting ready for our next release on Sept 24th I will be featuring some of my favorite Design Team projects from our Summer release.  They are so amazing and they are worth taking a second look!  I cannot wait to show you the 14 stamp sets and 15 die sets that we have coming out on September 24th.   They are sooo good! In the meantime, enjoy this great project by Caryn!

Today I’m featuring the Tropical Bouquet set and have two cards to share:

Avery Elle Tropical Bouquet Clear Stamps

I blended some Lemongrass Pigment ink onto my card base and then I used a make up sponge technique to add color to the centers of the flowers and to the edges of the leaves. After die cutting my elements I assembled them into a cluster and stamped the sentiment.



I have another card to share today this time pairing the Tropical Bouquet set with a cool stamp from the Peek-a-Boo Coaster set. To me, the track from the Coaster set looks a bit like a trellis so I stamped it in green along the left edge of my card base. I then added the flowers and leaves as though they are climbing up the trellis and finished off with a sentiment.



Supplies used:

Tropical Bouquet Clear Stamps

Tropical Bouquet Elle-ments

Peek-a-Boo Coaster Clear Stamps

Lemongrass Pigment Ink

I hope these cards have added some sunshine and happiness to your day wherever you are?

Poppies With Caryn

September 10, 2020



Hello!  While we are getting ready for our next release on Sept 24th I will be featuring some of my favorite Design Team projects from our Summer release.  They are so amazing and they are worth taking a second look!  I cannot wait to show you the 14 stamp sets and 15 die sets that we have coming out on September 24th.   They are sooo good! In the meantime, enjoy this great project by Caryn!

Hello there, here today sharing a card featuring some fabulous products from the latest Summer release.  
The card features two new sets – Big Congrats and Poppies.  I thought it was high time I dusted off my Avery Elle Liquid Watercolours and the Poppy images in this set are perfect to show off the delicate colours and effects you can create. 

First I stamped the the poppy garland image in Versamark and heat embossed it in white.  I “coloured in” the image with plain water to begin with so I could drop tiny amounts of the liquid watercolour onto the design.  I love the way the two colours merge and mingle together creating an almost translucent appearance – just like a real poppy!  I used Cherry and Fizz liquid watercolours on the flowers and a combination of Lemongrass and Jungle  for the foliage.

I set the image aside to dry and then die cut the Congrats die from the Big Congrats set in white.  I was going to leave. it like that for a tone on tone effect but I decided it needed a bit “more” so added versamark to the bottom half and then heat embossed it in gold for a dipped effect.  I stamped and heat embossed the “So Happy For You” block also.

Finally I assembled my card.  I wanted the card to be a bit bigger than the standard A2 size so I created a custom size of 4′ x 7′.  This gave my design a much better look and allowed me no avoid the card looking crowded.  Sometimes we forget we can create a card ANY size we like, lol!  I added the die cut floral image using foam tape and the congrats sentiment die cuts using liquid adhesive.  For a final flourish I added some enamel dots to tie in the gold on the sentiment.

Peek-A-Boo Boat With Katie

September 9, 2020



Hello!  While we are getting ready for our next release on Sept 24th I will be featuring some of my favorite Design Team projects from our Summer release.  They are so amazing and they are worth taking a second look!  I cannot wait to show you the 14 stamp sets and 15 die sets that we have coming out on September 24th.   They are sooo good! In the meantime, enjoy these great projects by Katie!

Hello friends! 

I am so excited for Avery Elle's Summer 2020 Release! 

I am sharing a couple of cards featuring the new Peek-A-Boo Boat stamp set. I LOVE a Peek-A-Boo set and I wanted to give these nautical pals some space to catch waves, so I created a slimline card which gave me space for the speed boat to pull the inner tube.  


I trimmed a panel of water color card stock to 3 5/8 x 8 1/2. I used Distress Ink to blend a sky and water background. I stamped, colored and die cut the images and adhered them to the card attaching the inner tube to the boat with a piece of cherry hemp twine. 


I added some of the jumping fish and water droplets as a finishing touch and stamped the sentiment in the top right corner of the card. 

For my next card, I tried a fun Z-fold technique which would reveal a surprise scene. 


I stamped, colored and die cut the images and set them aside. To make the Z-fold card, I ink blended a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 panel of watercolor card stock and scored it at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4. I folded along the score lines to make a Z-shape. 

I positioned the hammerhead shark in the center of the top panel so that it would hide the whale in the inner tube. I trimmed the sentiment and stamped it on the top panel and added another sentiment to the inner tube. I connected the two vessels with twine. 


 I love how this sweet scene reveals itself with this fun interactive design.

Camping Critters With Katie

Hello!

I am on the Avery Elle blog and You Tube channel this week with a video to share with you featuring the adorable Camping Critters clear stamps on a Slimline card. Slimline cards are very popular right now. Trying something a little different using supplies that you already have adds just a little extra jolt of joy into the creative process.

Slimline cards also give you all that glorious space to fill. The Camping Critters needed a background befitting of the great outdoors.


There are lots of different size variations on Slimline cards, but my favorite is 3 5/8 x 8 1/2. Using those dimensions, I can trim a sheet of watercolor card stock into equal thirds with only a tiny strip of leftover scrap paper. 


Slimline panels will fit into the regular-size MISTI and the finished cards pair with #10 business sized envelopes. Take a peek at my video to see how it all came together.


Supplies:

I hope this video helps demystify the Slimline card, and you'll give it a try for a future project! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Dog-Gone With Heather

Hello everyone! Today, I'm sharing projects with the new Dog-Gone stamp & die set.

I'm a dog person so this set really got me going. For my first card, I stamped, die cut and colored in the images and mounted them on an ink blended background. 

To ink blend this background, I simply tore masking tape and masked off part of the card. Isn't that effect cool?

Next, I have been dying to try out using a layout of Nicky's card HERE to create a card and these dogs just seemed perfect for it!
I love how I was able to fit most of the images together on one card here!

Finally, I had to play with the dog house. I love that there's sentiments that fit inside the bone on the house. So fun, right?

It really creates the perfect little scene.

That's it for me today. Ha! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me! Have a great one!
xoxo, Heather
