O Tiny Tree with Elena

October 23, 2020

Hi there!

Elena here with 3 cute cards featuring a stamp set from our newest release, O Tiny Tree.

First up, a sweet little scene, complete with a birdy helper:

I did some ink blending on the background layer, giving it a soft blue and purple sky, and then just built the scene. The bird and present that I used here are from Woodland Scene Builder.

My second card features the reindeer from the set:

I again did some ink blending on the background layer, this time in an aqua blue, and created a woodland scene using a mix of images from our current sets. The large fa-la-la greeting is from the Jingle set, and I love how it looks in a bright red! To finish things off I went a little crazy adding snow with my white enamel.

For my 3rd set, I created something as cozy as a hand-knit sweater:

I stamped the strips from Nordic Patterns and did some ink blending on top so it was super subtle. It made the perfect backdrop from these 2 friends to exchange gifts! A little heart and a sentiment strip finish off this card.

I hope you like what I created for today! Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Circle Tags & Christmas Cookies with Ashley

October 21, 2020

Hi Everyone! Ashley here sharing some fun holiday stamps and dies that will sure to become favorites!

I've had so much fun creating for the holidays lately. I started this tag set with Holiday Circle Tags. I wanted to explore different styles of tags so I made three different shapes. The penguin is dressed up with a scarf from Peek a Boo Holiday Tag Dies and then finished with die cuts from Holiday Circle Tag Dies

The snowman is again dressed up with a scarf and placed on a tag from Peek a Boo Tag Dies. The Santa is adhered to a hand cut tag base with the die cuts from Happy Holidays Dies and Holiday Circle Tag Dies.

Next, I had a sweet card using Christmas Cookies! I embossed several cookies and arranged them on my card. Then I stamped the sentiment strip. 

Thanks for stopping by!


Christmas Cookies With Katie

October 20, 2020


Katie here with a card to share with you featuring the new Christmas Cookies stamp set.  While I am not much of a holiday baker or a baker in general, I could play with this set of adorable cookies all day! I came up with a technique that makes these crafty cookies look like the real thing. The best part is there's no mixing bowls or baking sheets to clean afterwards.  

First, I inked up the stamp with Veramark, followed by ink. I used Avery Elle pigment ink. 

Next I sprinkled the stamped image with clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. 

I die cut the stamped image with the coordinating Elle-ments die. I used a sponge blender to ink the edges of the image with Antique Linen Distress Ink. 

As a finishing touch, I added Nuvo Drop ornaments. You could also use sequins or pom-poms to embellish the cookies. 

I repeated this technique for each of the cookies and arranged them onto a panel that I cut with the scallop from the Dotted Borders Elle-ments set. 

I stamped the sentiment in black ink and a few of the candies with Strawberry pigment ink. I added a few flat sequins as a finishing touch. 


Thanks for stopping by!


Adorable Holiday Tags with Caryn Davies!

October 19, 2020

Hey there, Caryn here today with some quick and easy holiday tag ideas using some of the fabulous new products in the latest Avery Elle release.

I used the Holiday Circle Tags and the Christmas Cookies stamps and dies to create 4 tags with different looks for your gift giving this Christmas.  I created a short video showing how they came together:

The first tags feature images from the Holiday Circle Tags set.  I simply stamped and coloured them with Copics and the used the Holiday Paper Pad as the background .

I wanted a more rustic look for the other tags and used Kraft card with white embossing to give a festive look to my cookies. 


Rustic Wreath Week - Day 5

October 16, 2020

Peace, Love, & Joy as this season approaches.  

Amy here today sharing a card/tag combo using the Rustic Wreath stamps.

Several of the groupings of flowers were stamped and Copic colored.  Once done, the images from Rustic Wreath were spritzed with Clear Shimmer Spray and die cut.  The images were arranged over a white trimmed panel that was scored on the sides at 1/4" for texture.  The sentiment was stamped front and center.  Tiny red detail with a Copic was done to the letters.  This panel was added to a note card layered with pattern paper from the Holiday Collection 6x6 Paper Pack.  The holiday spray images were added above and below the sentiment with foam adhesive.

I thought it would be fun to create a matching tag using the same products!  Using the Holiday Circle Tags Elle-ments, the various layers were die cut and layered together with foam adhesive.  The sentiment was stamped and Copic colored the same way as the card.  After adding one of the small sprays of flowers, some Cherry Bakers Twine was added to the top.

Rustic Wreath & Woodland Scene Builder Week - Day 4

October 15, 2020

Hello everyone! 
It's Heather here and I'm back with TWO projects today! Yay for a fun-filled post! 

First up, Rustic Wreath. When I first drew these stamps I had so many ideas for them - but mostly glorious tags absolutely stuck out to me. I just could picture them always! 

For these, I stamped the die cut the upper layer of the wreath and then I ended up die cutting the bottom layer to match. I love this technique! 

So pretty, right? 

Next, I played with Woodland Scene Builder

For this card, I stamped the main image and then added accents as well as die cut images for the focal point from Winter Friends

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day! 


Rustic Wreath & Woodland Scene Builder Week - Day 3

October 14, 2020

Hi Everyone!   I am popping in today with two cute cards that I created using some of our  newest sets.  I hope that they inspire you to go out and create something fun!!

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

Rustic Wreath and Woodland Scene Builder Week - Day 2

October 13, 2020

Hi there!

Elena here with a few cards using a set from our newest release, Woodland Scene Builder. I'm hoping to show you how versatile this stamp set is!

Right away, I flipped it and used the background image on a vertical card.

I stamped the background image, and then carefully cut the large tree with the mouse peeking out straight up. Then, I stamped it again lined up the right edge of the background to the right edge of my card. The trees layered on top of that tree on the left. Clear? haha. I'm confusing myself. To make it even more seamless, I used a black pen to draw in all of the missing lines (I didn't want the white die-cut border to show) and then colored everything in with copic markers. Try zooming in to the top left-hand side of the card for a better view. 

After that, building the rest of the card was easy! I added in the sledding squirrel from Winter Friends and some string lights from O Tiny Tree. I love how the mouse and squirrel are waving to each other!

My next card shows you that this background set can be used year-round:

I paired it with images from Camping Critters for a fun summer set. I achieved a more summery look by stamping the grassy tufts included in the set, and doing some ink-blending on the card base before adding in the die-cut layers. I also kept the string lights white, which is 100% less festive than coloring them red.

I couldn't help but add in some pops of red, though! Just enough? hee hee.

My 3rd card uses the set more simply:

I literally just tucked it behind the big die-cut Happy Holidays, added the little girl on the deer to the side, and accented the die-cut with some sprigs and the snowman from O Tiny Tree. 

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


Rustic Wreath Week & Woodland Scene Builder Week - Day 1

October 12, 2020

Hello, it's Caryn here today with what (started out as) a clean and simple one-layer card featuring the gorgeous new Rustic Wreath stamp set.  I say it started out as because at the end I decided to add the bow on foam tape - and I think it was just what was needed!!

The simplicity of this card makes it a design that would be easy to replicate in quick time so perfect for when you want to rustle up some pretty holiday cards in a hurry!

Thanks for stopping by.

Jingle With Katie

October 9, 2020

Hello friends, 

Katie here with a couple cards to share with you featuring the Jingle stamp set. I adore this script and the holiday edition is so fun! For my first card, I used the Fa and La stamps to create a Christmas Tree shape. 

I decorated the "tree" with enamel dots and added a die cut rectangle (it's the stocking cuff from the Christmas Cookies Elle-ments set). You could also use sequins or other small stamp shapes to create the ornaments if you need to make the card flat for mailing. 


For my second card, I paired the Peace on Earth sentiment with the bear from the Peek-A-Boo Holiday Tag Toppers Elle-ments dies. 

I placed the bear on top of a die cut made with the Star Scene Elle-ment die. I backed the die cut with some glittery paper and added some details and shading to the bear with Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiment with Versamrk ink before heat embossing it with silver embossing powder. 

Jingle With Ashley

October 8, 2020

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing Jingle plus some fun friends from Joyeux Narwhal

I started by cutting my custom card, 4.25 inches by 6.5 inches. Next, I cut a blue panel for my ocean and inked it. Then I stamped, die cut a colored the ocean animals along with the seaweed and holly.  

I then adhere all the animals. stamped and colored in the bubbles. Finally, I stamped "jolly" and "be". I love this big sentiment. It is so on trend and I love the hand lettering! 


Aw, Nuts - Day 4

October 7, 2020

Aw, Nuts!  Amy here using the adorable Aw, Nuts stamp set from the new release.

I created a falling leaf background by alternatively stamping the image......stamp, ink, rotate stamp, repeat.  The leaves were Copic colored with YR02, YR04, YR08, and Y13.  

Aw, Nuts

The squirrel in the acorn was Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating Aw, Nuts Elle-ments.  The image was adhered with foam adhesive to the trimmed,background panel stamped above.  A simple sentiment stamped in black on kraft and also added with foam adhesive.

Aw, Nuts - Day 3

October 6, 2020

Hi there!

Elena here with a cozy fall card featuring the new Aw, Nuts stamp set:

I just love the little squirrel in his acorn home, and wanted him to be the center of attention! A great way to push all the focus on him was to use the Ray background die. I cut it out of kraft paper, and then used an ink blender to darken the area around the opening. I also added texture and more interest by splattering darker brown and white paint onto the die-cut layer before adding in the images. 

After working on the base layer, I added in the squirrel onto foam squares, nestling him behind some brightly colored mushrooms. Even though the card is dark and earthy in tone, I wanted to add in some pops of color - the mushrooms, the mug, the leaf, and his scarf all break up the brown tones that are prominent on this card.

For a final touch, I added the bird, from Woodland Scene Builder, and used a white gel pen to draw in a little dotted path.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!


Jingle & Aw, Nuts - Day 2

October 5, 2020

Hey there!   Caryn here today sharing a couple of cards featuring some gorgeous new products (and a couple of my favourite oldies too!).  

For my first card I paired (again) the Aw, Nuts! set from the brand new release with the Fall Foliage set from last year.  I shared a card last week HERE showing how beautifully this year's Fall sets co-ordinate with stamps you probably already have in your collection.

On this card I stamped the images onto white card using Truffle Pigment Ink which works great for watercolouring.  I pulled out my Zig Clean Colour Markers and water brush and coloured my images in rich, Autumn colours - I can't get enough of these colours right now!

I used a kraft A2 card base and using an oval stencil and a blending brush I created a focal point on the centre of the card and then used the Avery Elle White Spray to add a subtle speckling of white before adding my coloured images using foam adhesive.

Supplies used:

I am also sharing a card using the great new sentiment set, Jingle.  I love big sentiments like these, they make it so easy to rustle up cards and tags in no time!

I started by cutting a panel from white card slightly smaller than my A2 kraft card base.  I then took different stamps from the Nordic Patterns set and stamped a design in red and green inks.  In the middle of the pattern I stamped the Jingle and All The Way sentiments then continued to build up the pattern.

Once I was happy with that I used the star cookie die from Christmas Cookies and cut an aperture on the panel and then used that to place the co ordinating stamp onto the kraft card underneath.

I stamped the star cookie image through in Versamark and heat embossed it in white.
I then adhered the the panel using foam tape and finished off with a couple of enamel dots.
