STAMPtember Avery Elle Exclusive


Yay!  Today we are celebrating with Simon Says Stamp on a collaboration with Avery Elle as part of the 2016 STAMPtember event.  Extra exciting for me as I happily design for both these amazing companies.  Avery Elle has designed this fabulous snowflake stamp set called Christmas Cheer along with co-ordinating dies – isn’t it amazing?1_359498_zmI created a couple of cards using the stamps and some different ink blending techniques.  The first uses Distress Inks blended onto Bristol watercolour paper (my favourite) and then stamped over with Doll Pink dye ink for the snowflakes and sentiment.  I aded a shimmery sheen using some Shimmer spray.  (all supplies linked below).


For the second card I stamped the snowflakes in Versamark and then heat embossed in white.  I used Zig Clean Colour markers to scribble across the panel and a wet cloth to blend it out – this technique was shared by Jennifer McQuire a few days ago and I loved it – great fun!  Again I finished with a good spray of shimmer spray and although you can’t see it, it’s mega sparkly!


Please check out the rest of the Avery Elle Design Team and also the fab designers over on the Simon Says Stamp blog too for more great samples using this set – happy stamping.
