Avery Elle Warm Wishes

Hi Everyone, Ashley here! I LOVE all of the holiday products right now and am super excited to share Warm Wishes with you today. One of the joys of Avery Elle stamps and dies is how well they work together. I'm going to share a fun combo with you today!

To create my card I stamped the large jar from Warm Wishes. Next I masked the bottom and stamped the ice burg from Brring on the Joy. Next I stamped the inside images, the tree from Warm Wishes, the penguin from Brring on the Joy, the lights from Sledding Critters and the star from Festive Wreath. See how well they all work together!

After I colored and die cut the images and die cut the back frame with Diagonal Stripes and Double Pierced Rectangles. The sentiment was embossed on black card stock to finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle Bad Kitty

Hi Everyone! It's Ashley here and today I'm featuring the new Bad Kitty stamps and dies.

To create my tag (perfect for Halloween treats!), I stamped and die cut the cat and pumpkin from Bad Kitty and colored them with Copics. Next I cut the tag from Shaker Tag Dies, the fench from Picket Fence Dies and the moon & cloud from Cityscapes Dies. I added the background color with Distress Inks and then assembled by tag.

Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Avery Elle blog hop! I'm excited to share one of the new sets being released! You won't want to miss out on all of the other inspiration so after you check out this card, hop on over to see what Elena Roussakis made!

Today I'm featuring Sledding Critters! These are the critters you've come to love over the last several releases and now they are all jam packed in an adorable sled. 

I love this stamp because it really makes the whole card for you. I stamped, colored and die cut the image. Next, I lightly inked the sledding hill with Distress Inks. 

I cut a piece of black card stock and embossed a sentiment from the set. Adding two pieces of black card stock on either side, with a little flag cut on the ends makes a quick and easy DIY banner. 

I finished the card with sequins and mounted it on some patterned paper.

Here are all the hop details!

Avery Elle Summer Favorites

Hi Everyone!

I'm excited to share my projects today! These are some of my favorites from this summer. First, I used several products for sweet card. I can't say it enough but I love how Avery Elle products mix, match and combine with each other during each release and from previous releases. This card proves it!

This card using Birthday Bus, Sentimental Too on the outside...

...and Birthday BusSentimental Too, Woodland Wonders and Monsters. Isn't it fun how they all work together.

Next I created a fun mini album with Modern Alpha. I love prints and it's fun to recreate some of my favorite sayings with this alphabet. I had to add the adorable crab from Bubbles because he is just so cute.

Thanks for stopping by!
