Layered Pine Week - Day 5

September 24, 2021

Hi Everyone! I'm excited to share a Layered Pine and Layered Stars today! 

I started by stamping and embossing the pine branches on coordinating colored card stock. I especially love the white embossed pine branches! Then I stamped the pink start that hangs from the blue branches. Next, I die cut Merry from two shades of card stock and layered them. Finally, I adhered all of the elements to a few layers of card stock and stamped the remaining sentiment from Layered Stars. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Layered Pine Week - Day 3

September 22, 2021

Amy here today with a fun layered set called Layered Stars.  

I decided to use this set in a non-holiday fashion.  This card could be sent to anyone needing encouragement, birthday, or congratulations!  

Using the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments, the gray background and the banner shape were die cut.  The gray cardstock was stamped with the star stamp in Versamark ink for a tone on tone look to create a non-distracting background for my star banner.  The stars are SO easy to line up and make for a quick and effortless card!  My final layer of stamping on these stars was done in Versamark and silver heat embossed (as well as the sentiment).  For a final touch, some dimension was added with foam adhesive and some silver pearls for shine!

Layered Pine Week - Day 2

September 21, 2021

Hello friends, 

Katie here with a dreamy holiday card to share with you today featuring two of the new layered stamp sets: Layered Pine and Layered Stars.  I have really enjoyed using these new layered designs. It's absolutely thrilling to watch an image come to life before your eyes with such simple supplies like stamps and ink!

First I stamped the layered pine branch and shiny foil stars using complimentary shades of dye ink. Next I began work on the background by die cutting a panel of Distress Heavystock paper with the stitched rectangle die from the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments set. 

I blended the Heavystock with Distress Oxide ink in Salvaged Patina and spattered the panel with water to lift the ink in spots. I arranged the stamped elements on the panel and then stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink before heat embossing it with silver embossing powder. 

With the sentiment in place, I adhered the other elements to the panel, affixed the completed panel to an A-2 card base and added a few flat sequins as a finishing touch. 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!


Santa Paws - Day 6

Santa Paws is coming to town?! I LOVE creating for the holidays! Here is a fun card to add to my Christmas stash...

I started the card by stamping, die cutting and coloring the cute dogs from Santa Paws! There are four in the set and I love ALL of them! Next, I inked up the background and added 3 card stock strips. Finally, I stamped the sentiment and adhered all of the fun images on the card base!

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

Layered Pine Week - Day 1

September 20, 2021

Hey there, it's Caryn here today sharing a card using some new products from the fall 2021 release as well as a couple of older ones! 

I've been having so much fun designing and using the layered stamp sets we have at Avery Elle.  Today I'm showcasing 2 of them - the Layered Holiday Truck and the Layered Pine stamp sets.  

A few tips I often use when creating with these sets is to use the MISTI and load all the layers of the image onto one platform.  This helps to stamp several images at a time.  For example, the Layered Pine set consists of two images so I put them into my stamping platform and make sure to use the exact same size piece of card each time.  You can use a square or rectangular die to be extra precise! In this case I cut squares of 9mm length.

To help line up the second layer of the stamp I sometimes use the printed carrier sheet that the stamps live on.  This can really help if the images are a bit more difficult to see through.

I used the same techniques when stamping the truck and the trees  It can take a bit of trial and error but once you have everything lined up you should get great results.

Once I stamped all images I die cut the Snow Scene Elle-ments in white and blended some aqua blue ink over the top half of it.  I used the wavy banner from the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments and stamped the sentiments from the Layered Holiday Truck set onto them.  

Here's a wee tip when you want a curved sentiment but the stamp is straight.  Die cut the piece you want to stamp onto.  The flip it over so the front side is facing down and put a clear stamping block on top of it.  Curve your sentiment to the shape you want it to stamp onto then turn the die cut back over and ink up your stamp and it will be lined up to the shape of the die cut! 

I made the wee Happy Holidays flag from the same wavy banner die but snipped it in half and added a slither of card for the the stick!

It's Yainea here today featuring the super cute Santa Paws stamps and coordinating dies. Each one of the puppies are adorable! So I created a Christmas card using the little and happy dachshund and I loved coloring him so much hehe.

I used Distress inks to color the sky background and alcohol markers for the puppy. Then I put together the scene with some vellum paper and created the snow with white enamel liquid dots. Finally, I added some sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

September 15, 2021

Hello!  Amy here featuring the cute Santa Paws set.

This card was started by ink blending the background with Distress Inks and ink splattering with metallic watercolors (blue and silver).  The snow hills were done using the Slimline Borders Elle-ments and glitter was added to the edges.  The hills were added to a panel die cut using the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments.

How adorable are these puppies getting all ready for Christmas??  They were Copic colored, die cut, and added to the card with foam dimension.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a black sentiment strip with foam dimension.

Hello friends, 

Katie here with a video to share with you today featuring the Santa Paws clear stamps. These dog images are the cutest, and I had so much fun creating a few scenes for our festive pooches featuring colorful backgrounds. 

I used some post-it notes to mask off the rectangles and added Distress Oxide ink using blending brushes. 

I hope you will take a peek at my video to see how it all came together!

Santa Paws Week - Day 1

September 13, 2021

Hi there!

Elena here with a fun card featuring the cute puppies from Santa Paws:

I stamped and colored my favorite dog of the bunch - I just love him running with his cute sweater on and the string of lights in his mouth!

I gave him a bird friend to frolic in the snow with - from the previously released Snow Fun - and set them against a striped blue sky. I framed them out with a scalloped piece from the Holiday Ephemera pack and added a sentiment to finish things off. 

I hope you like it!


Merry Circle Tags Week - Day 5

September 10, 2021

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing Merry Circle Tags. There are so many fun images and sentiments in this set! Let's look how I used this set on a card...

This card all started with the fun "No Peeking!" sentiment. I hide a dog from Santa Paws in a die cut circle and layered strips of cardstock across the top. I added a few details like the pom pom santa hat (stamp from Mr. and Mrs. Clause), glitter on the light pink strip and twine!

Merry Circle Tags Week - Day 4

September 9, 2021

Hi everyone! Heather Campbell here. 

Today, I'm playing with the new Merry Circle Tags stamp set. I originally thought I'd make a set of tags with these but I thought it would be fun to show how this set is versatile to cards too! 

For my card, I stamped the circle tag outline 3 times. Then, I masked the outside of the circle and stamped the inside with critters from Christmas Critters. Once those were stamped, I masked the inside of the circles and added ink blending and LOTS of shimmer and white ink spray. 
I think this card is so fun! 

That's it from me today. Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Circle Tags Week - Day 2

September 7, 2021

Hi there!

Elena here, with a fun card featuring some products from our newest release:

I love the new Merry Circle Tags stamp set! It is so versatile and the sentiments are so great! I combined it with another new set, Mr. & Mrs. Claus. I stamped and colored the happy couple, and then stamped the circle frame from Merry Circle Tags overtop. I die-cut it using the circle and scalloped circle dies from Holiday Circle Tags.

To hide the fact that Santa and Mrs. Claus are riding a tandem bike, I used a bright red sentiment strip from the Holiday Ephemera pack, and also added a piece of striped patterned paper from the Holiday Collection Paper Pad. I love the extra pop of holiday red!

To finish off, I stamped a greeting from Merry Circle Tags just below the focal image.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used:

Merry Circle Tags Week - Day 1

Hey there, Caryn here today sharing a card using the Merry Circle Tags stamp set.  Instead of creating tags, I decided to showcase how great a set this is for creating backgrounds or patterns using all the tiny images.

I started by stamping the larger sentiment image in red ink in the bottom right corner of a panel cut using the Double Pierced Rectangle die collection.  I then selected the small holiday images one by one and stamped them in green until I had filled the rest of the panel 
To add a little contrast and "pop" I added a piece of red card to the back of the front panel using foam adhesive.and tied some twine around the panel.

To add a little bit more interest I added colour to the berries on the holly images and added a red heart bubble onto the twine.  
I love how clean and simple this design turned out!

September 1, 2021

Hello!  Amy here with a Fall thank Fall is right around the corner.

Fall Picnic has adorable critters and lots of cute details to add to a fall scene!  Each of these images were stamped, Copic colored, and die cut.  They were all layered at varying heights to the scene.  The background was an ink blended panel using Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks and was die cut using the stitched border from Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments.  To assemble the scene, a border of grass, die cut using the Slimline Borders Elle-ments, was added to the bottom of the ink blended panel.  Once done, white ink was splattered over the panel and a sentiment banner added.

Fall Picnic Week - Day 2

August 31, 2021

Hello friends! 

Katie here with a card and a technique to share featuring the absolutely charming Fall Picnic clear stamps.  For coloring, I typically reach for Copic markers, but Copics can also be complimented with colored pencils to enhance the stamped images. 

Below are the stamped images using just Copic markers. I chose to leave few of the detailed images uncolored so that I could add color using colored pencils.  

In this next photo, I added shading and detail with colored pencils and a white gel pen. 

Colored pencils allow you to add depth and dimension with more precision and control. If you are new to using these two color mediums together, here are a few tips: 

  • Make sure your pencils are super sharp. I purchased an inexpensive electric pencil sharpener from Amazon just for this purpose. 
  • Start with a light touch when adding deeper shades. You can always deepen the intensity of the color with additional layers. 
  • Use colored pencils to color the tiny images. A sharp pencil can easily navigate the most detailed elements. 
  • If you aren't sure where to add color with pencils, think about the corners and crevices where shadows would lie. Colored pencils can also reinforce detail lines on the stamped images like those on the tree stumps. 

Once all the images where colored, I die cut the stamped images using the coordinating Elle-ments dies. 

For the background, I did a quick blend of Distress Oxide ink onto a panel of watercolor card stock and spattered it with water and white ink. I positioned the blended panel behind the Oval Burst Elle-ments die. 

I adhered all the stamped images to the card. Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of black card stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. 


Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you are inspired to try pairing Copic markers and colored pencils together on your next coloring project!
