Avery Elle Fall 2020 Release and Blog Hop!


Hello friends!

I am so excited for Avery Elle's Fall 2020 Release. It's full of all kinds of stamps and dies perfect for celebrating and crafting the most wonderful time of the year! All of the new items are available for purchase now in the Avery Elle shop and retail partners. 

I have a couple of projects to share using the new Holiday Circle Tags clear stamps and dies. 

I used the Santa Tag image to create a simple card. I used a die to cut a 2" circle in a panel of white card stock and nested the tag in the opening. I stamped the snowflakes on the panel and added a sentiment from the Jingle clear stamp set. A few sequins and a strip of patterned paper add a festive finishing touch. 

I also used the Santa Tag, coordinating Holiday Circle Tags Elle-ments dies and the Peek-a-Boo tag to decorate a small gift bag. I covered the gift bag with papers from Avery Elle's Holiday Collection paper pack. I stamped and colored the Santa Tag, die cut the tag and added the outer scalloped circle. It's the perfect size to create a focal point on a small canvas. I added a tag created with the Peek-a-Boo Tag Elle-ments. I tied the tag with twine and used a tiny clothes pin to attach the tag to the bag.  

The Avery Elle Design Team will be showcasing projects using the new release today in a fun blog hop! Be sure to stop by all the team members' blogs and show some love for the new products and designs.

STAMPtember Exclusive: Holiday Bells

Hello friends, 

I am thrilled to share that Avery Elle's contribution to Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember party is available now! Holiday Bells is a jaunty, sassy holiday set, and I absolutely adore it. The clear stamp set is available for purchase now exclusively at Simon Says Stamp. 

I had the most fun designing and creating this festive scene, my first card of the holiday season!

I stamped the bell outlines with black hybrid ink and colored the images with Copic Markers. On the orange and aqua bels, I stamped the bell patterns on top of the colored image using a coordinating ink color. I used a Brother Scan N Cut to cut out the bells and the bows that I stamped with black ink. 

On a panel of Distress Water Color card stock, I blended some Distress ink in Mowed Lawn and stamped the pine boughs on top with a few different shades of green ink. I stamped the sentiment onto the panel with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I used a tape runner to adhere the bells to the card and Avery Elle's Liquid Adhesive to glue the tiny bows to the top of the bells. I added a few highlights to the bells with a white gel pen and some clear flat sequins as a finishing touch. 

Here's a peek at the Holiday Bells stamp set available NOW at Simon Say Stamp while supplies last. 

Thanks for stopping by and celebrating with me today!
