Avery Elle Fall 2017 Release Blog Hop

It’s here – the brand new release from Avery Elle has landed and this one is my favourite every year.  The Fall release is always packed with amazing festive goodies and this year is no exception.  I may be biased (because I have 3 new designs in this release myself) but I think you’re going to LOVE it!!

Today I’m sharing a card using one of those new sets – Bad Kitty.  You may remember a set I designed last year called Dear Santa featuring a rather well behaved little cat?  Well this is her naughty little sister (or brother!!).  Bad Kitty is a spooked-up version with a cute little pumpkin that he can hide in.  With a bit of creative surgery you could also make him pop up out of it as the lid of the pumpkin is separate!


I created my scene using the brand new Cityscape die collection.  I may have let out a tiny squeal when I first saw this set of dies.  Heather has outdone herself with this and I know I’m going to get a TON of value out of it.  I started with a white card base and blended some Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink to make a spooky sky backdrop.  I die cut the cityscape design from black card and a couple of clouds from grey.  The “moon” is also included which is just perfect!  One of my favourite dies in the collection though is the path – how clever is that?  I stamped Bad Kitty, the pumpkin and a tombstone (from the new Bewitching stamp set) using Avery Elle New Moon Dye ink and coloured and coloured them all with Copics.  Finally I stamped the sentiment and a wee bat and the card was done.
