Avery Ellle Winter Wonderland Wonders

Hi Everyone! Ashley here sharing a few tips using the new Winter Wonderland Wonders stamp set and dies. I love creating layered scenes and I'm going to share how easy it is with you today!


To create my card I started by cutting a piece of Post it Tape in the shape of a hill. You can free form cut this or use a die like Picket Fence. I like to add a piece of copy paper to the side of the tape I want to mask so I have great coverage on my card. Next, lay the mask on your card surface and add ink. Tip: concentrate the ink close to the mask and then fade it out. Move your mask up our card and turn it slightly, layering a background of hills. I created 3 hills but you can created as many as you'd like!


Next, stamp a tree at the top of your hill. This adds fun depth and interest. Next, stamp and die cut the animals you want in your scene. I chose the bear, bunny and deer. Aren't they cute?

Place the animals on each hill, varying their position on the card. Tip: put the animals below the hill line for a more realistic look. 


Finally, stamp the sentiment and add sequins, patterned paper or any other embellishment you'd like. 

Tip: when I find a layout like this that I like, I often repeat it. HERE is another card I created using the layered scene. 

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you create!

Avery Elle Holiday Bouquet

Hi Everyone! Ashley here sharing the amazing poinsettia stamp set Holiday Bouquet. One of my favorite holiday traditions is looking at poinsettias at my local nursery. I couldn't wait to bring my favorite poinsettia color to this stamp!


I started the card by coloring and die cutting the main image from Holiday Bouquet. I love the new Shaker Dies and decided to use the circle die to add a tag shape behind the focal image. I kept the background simple with some Distress Stain and sequins. The card was finished with twine and a stamped sentiment. 


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

Avery Elle Brring on the Joy

Hi Everyone! Ashley here today sharing Brring on the Joy!

I started my card by stamping and die cutting all of the images from the stamp set. I do this often when I first get a stamp set to play with the stamps and move them around to see how I can use them. Tip: All the pieces I didn't use are tucked away for another project. ;)



I decided to use this penguin to carry the wreath and lights. He is ready to deck the halls! I placed him on the ice and completed my card with one of the great sentiments from the set. 


Another tip! I like to use my die cuts to create windows on my cards. On this card I used Wonky Stitches Dies.
