I am so excited join my teammates on the Avery Elle Design Team and share with you some of my first projects that I made with the Avery Elle Fall 2016 release. The entire release is up and available now in the Avery Elle shop! Avery Elle is celebrating the release with a great hop featuring loads of inspiration and prizes- more details on that below.
First, a card using the Large Pinecone Elle-ments die. If you were a fan of last year's Pop Up Wreath, you are going to love this die. The Pinecone Elle-ments dies makes effortless and elegant holiday cards.
A slightly smaller version of the Pinecone image was also brought to life in the Pinecones Clear stamp set. For this next card, I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with black Versafine ink and added water color using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
I painted one section at a time allowing time for the watercolor to dry before moving to the next color or section. Once the image was colored, I went around the image with a wash of light blue watercolor and some spray mist. I die cut the panel with the Wonky Stitches die before adhering the panel to a Raspberry note card.
My last card for today uses a super cute set illustrated by Heather Campbell, Happy Howl-idays.
I combined Happy Howl-idays with a few other dies including the new Falling Snow die and the Dotted Borders Elle-ments die to create a little scene for this sweet pup.
I also used the new Postage Stamps Ellements die to create a frame for the snowy scene. I trimmed the note card from standard A2 dimensions to 4" x 5.25" to accommodate the frame.
