Avery Elle Fall 2019 Blog Hop!

Hello friends! 

Today we're celebrating Avery Elle's Fall 2019 Release with a Blog Hop to share some inspiration using the newest products.  You should have arrived from Melania Deasy's blog.

I have three cards to share with you today featuring the Simply Said- Bright stamp set and coordinating Elle-ments dies. 

For my first card, I paired Simply Said-Bright with the penguins from Polar Playtime. I stamped the penguins and colored them with Copic markers. I also stamped "Bright" onto white card stock with Versafine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed it with Avery Elle's clear embossing powder. 

I adhered the stamped and die-cut images to a panel of white card stock that I had die-cut with the Classic Flags Elle-ments die. I used one of the pieces of ephemera from Avery Elle's Holiday Ephemera pack as a background for the stamped images. I stamped "making spirits" onto the Ephemera background. I love that it tucks perfectly above "Bright."

I adhered the scalloped die-cut to an A2 card that I covered with a piece of patterned paper from the Holiday Collection paper pad. As a finishing touch, I tied a simple bow using black and white Hemp twine. 

For my next card, I paired Simply Said-Bright with the Snow Fun stamp set. For a different look, I heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder.  

I built the snowy scene using ephemera from Avery Elle's Holiday Ephemera pack and Holiday Paper Pad and adhered all the images and die cuts to an A2 note card. 

For my last card, I wanted to show how the Simply Said- Bright set can be used beyond the upcoming holiday season.  It stands up so well on its own as a focal point and includes sentiments that are perfect for a graduation card and lots of other occasions. 

I stamped Bright with Versafine Black Onyx ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I die cut the word and the accompanying shadow image and blended the shadow image with Distress Oxide ink. I layered the die cuts and adhered it to the Star Scene Elle-ments die and the Burst Elle-ments die before adhering everything to a 4.25" square notecard.
