Fall Foliage Card + Favorite Copics for Fall {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

Just popping in today with a card to share with you featuring Avery Elle's gorgeous Fall Foliage stamp set. I love fall and all the colors that burst forth from the trees. It's also an opportunity to use some Copic Marker color combinations that evoke the hues and shades of fall. With that in mind, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Copic colors for Fall.

To create my card, I stamped the images from the Fall Foliage stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed the images with gold embossing powder. Next I colored the images using the Copic markers noted in the image above.  I die cut the images and arranged them in a wreath around the opening of the Quilted Frame Elle-ments die. 

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto an A2 notecard. I adhered the quilted frame die and images to the notecard with foam tape and adhered a few clear droplets as a finishing touch.


That's all for me today. I hope that these color combinations are helpful as you capture the colors of Fall on your cards. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Skates {Avery Elle}

Hello friends!

I am on the Avery Elle blog today with a card featuring the festive Holiday Skates clear stamps. Ice skates are such a beautiful icon of the winter season, and I love all the thoughtful extra images included in this set to make the skates extra special.

To create the card, first I die cut the Let it Snow Elle-ments die from a piece of iridescent glitter card stock. I love glitter card stock because it lets me have all the sparkle with none of the mess.  I die cut the inner dome from water color card stock and added some Distress Oxide inks in Tattered Rose and Scattered Straw.  I also stamped the snowflakes from the Holiday Skates stamp set in Tattered Rose ink before adding the sentiment in black ink. 

I stamped, colored and die cut the skates and accent images and arranged them onto the water color panel. Once I was happy with the placement, I secured the pieces to a notecard using tape runner and Avery Elle's liquid adhesive. The liquid glue has the precision of a pen making it perfect for adding the right amount of adhesive to small die cuts.


Thanks for skating by today!
