Ellen Hutson October 2021 Release

I’m back sharing another card using the fabulous October 2021 Release from Ellen Hutson LLC. The font in this sentiment set – Sending Holiday Cheer is one of my favourites of all time. It’s retro and funky and I love it!

I kept the card simple as the sentiment is really the star of the show. I started by splattering some Gold Shimmer texture spray by dropping a few spots onto the card base and setting it aside to dry. Meanwhile I die cut a stitched circle and stamped the sentiment onto it using Versamark ink. I then heat embossed it with Gold Tinsel embossing powder by Ranger – it’s one of my favourites! I also stamped and embossed the pine cone image from another new set in this release – Sweet Surprises. I added a little colour using a Zig Clean Colour brush marker in peach.

I adhered the circle slightly off centre onto a white A2 card base then added the pine cone images and finished off with a gold bow and a sequin!

Hey there! I’m thrilled to be here today sharing a fun and festive card using some awesome products from the brand new Ellen Hutson October Release 2021. This release has something for everyone and I can’t wait to share what I’ve created!

First up is this one! This set is called Sweet Surprises and is full of the cutest images that can be stuffed inside the beautiful stocking. Just look at that bear!

For the sentiment I stamped the image in Versamark on a piece of vellum and then heat embossed it again in gold. I die cut a frame using some rectangle dies and adhered the vellum into it. I then added some aqua coloured card behind that.

To add a bit more sparkle I used a some Ranger Gold Glitter Stickles around the edge of the frame and added a bow using gold thread with a star sequin to finish it off!

Avery Elle … Prosecco-Ho-Ho

Hey there!  I’m here today sharing this card created with the amazing Prosecco-Ho-Ho stamp set!  Anyone who’s ever met me probably knows I have a penchant for the odd glass of fizz!  So this set is one I’ll be reaching for to create a bunch of my holiday cards this year!!

I used the Star Scene Elle-ments to cut a starry backdrop and then stamped, coloured and die cut the images from the set.  I also layered in some foliage to make it even more festive using the Layered Pine stamp set.

Cheers everyone!

Avery Elle … Layered Holiday Truck

Hi there, Caryn here today with a couple of cards and a video sharing some tips on using the Layered Holiday Truck stamp set.I love this vintage style set and once you get everything lined up it creates a fun, retro look perfect for the holidays.

I made two cards – one Fall themed and one Christmas themed.  I love how they both turned out.I pulled out some older die sets to create today’s cards.  The first uses the gorgeous Quilted Frame Elle-ments in a dark, pine green. and layered some snowy hills behind the oval aperture using the Slimline Borders Elle-ments  

The little holly flourish is from the Prosecco-ho-ho stamp set and I created the sentiment banners using the wavy banner from the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments set.

For the second card I created a simple Thank You card by stamping the truck in two shades of blue and then loading it up with the little pumpkin stack from the set.  I die cut the Star Scene elle-ments and then finished it off with the sentiment from the Invitation Frame Elle-ments.

Avery Elle … Layered Pine

Hey there, it’s I’m here today sharing a card using some new products from the fall 2021 release as well as a couple of older ones! 

I’ve been having so much fun designing and using the layered stamp sets we have at Avery Elle.  Today I’m showcasing 2 of them – the Layered Holiday Truck and the Layered Pine stamp sets.  

A few tips I often use when creating with these sets is to use the MISTI and load all the layers of the image onto one platform.  This helps to stamp several images at a time.  For example, the Layered Pine set consists of two images so I put them into my stamping platform and make sure to use the exact same size piece of card each time.  You can use a square or rectangular die to be extra precise! In this case I cut squares of 9mm length.

To help line up the second layer of the stamp I sometimes use the printed carrier sheet that the stamps live on.  This can really help if the images are a bit more difficult to see through.

I used the same techniques when stamping the truck and the trees  It can take a bit of trial and error but once you have everything lined up you should get great results.
Once I stamped all images I die cut the Snow Scene Elle-ments in white and blended some aqua blue ink over the top half of it.  I used the wavy banner from the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments and stamped the sentiments from the Layered Holiday Truck set onto them.  
Here’s a wee tip when you want a curved sentiment but the stamp is straight.  Die cut the piece you want to stamp onto.  The flip it over so the front side is facing down and put a clear stamping block on top of it.  Curve your sentiment to the shape you want it to stamp onto then turn the die cut back over and ink up your stamp and it will be lined up to the shape of the die cut! 

I made the wee Happy Holidays flag from the same wavy banner die but snipped it in half and added a slither of card for the the stick!

Avery Elle … Halloween S’mores

Here today sharing a card featuring the new Halloween S’mores stamp set –  the cutest collection of Halloween treats you ever did see!! In the UK s’mores aren’t really a thing (we don’t have Graham crackers here) but we do make our own versions using good old McVities chocolate digestives!!  Not sure how they compare to the originals but they do taste good!

Anyway, back to the card!  I started with a white A2 landscape card and blended some lime green ink to give a bit of background colour.  

I used the Double Pierced Rectangle dies and cut a mat and then a smaller frame using two of the smaller rectangles.  I then blended orange and purple inks onto the frame to keep with the Halloween vibe! I adhered the frame onto the mat and popped them onto the card front using foam tape.

I coloured the cute s’more characters using Copics and then stamped and die cut them and popped them onto the card using foam tape.For the sentiment I used the banner from Easy Layers 1 die set and stamped the Halloween is S’more onto it in black and orange then completed the card by stamping “fun with friends like you” underneath – finishing off with a couple of stars.

Avery Elle … Merry Circle tags

Hey there, Caryn here today sharing a card using the Merry Circle Tags stamp set.  Instead of creating tags, I decided to showcase how great a set this is for creating backgrounds or patterns using all the tiny images.

I started by stamping the larger sentiment image in red ink in the bottom right corner of a panel cut using the Double Pierced Rectangle die collection.  I then selected the small holiday images one by one and stamped them in green until I had filled the rest of the panel To add a little contrast and “pop” I added a piece of red card to the back of the front panel using foam adhesive.and tied some twine around the panel.

To add a little bit more interest I added colour to the berries on the holly images and added a red heart bubble onto the twine.  I love how clean and simple this design turned out!

Avery Elle… Christmas Dreams

Hey there, it’s Caryn here today with a holiday card made of a number of the new sets from the Fall 2021 release.

I stamped, coloured and die cut the mouse from Christmas Dreams then created my bas card.

I wanted to have him perched on top of the Merry die so stamped some foliage using the layered pine stamps and dies.  I cut 3 of the Merry die from white cardstock and once from red and layered up the four layers.  I used some of the small images from Merry Circle Dies to create a band across the card behind the mouse and used the “be” part from the sentiment in the Layered Stars stamp set.

Avery Elle Fall 2021 Release Blog Hop

Hello Avery Elle fans. Today is the day our fabulous Fall 2021 release is unveiled and available in the store. I love this release and look forward to it every year. Today I’m sharing a card using a couple of sets I created – Layered Stars and Layered Pine clear stamps.

I stamped the branch a couple of times in different shades of green to give a more bushy effect. Then I created three stars by layering up different inks of the same colour. Just experiment with inks you have – I used different Catherine Pooler inks on my card.

For a summary of all of our new products that are available for purchase right now check out this section in our store . We will be showcasing projects using our new sets starting today and will continue to show them throughout the next few months. I can’t wait!

Let’s get to the hop.

Avery Elle … Lovely

Hi there.  It’s Caryn here today sharing a bright and fun card featuring the Lovely stamp set and dies.  I’ve paired it with the gorgeous Hooray die and a palette of rainbow gorgeousness.

I blended Distress Inks onto some watercolour paper and spritzed with water for a textured effect.  Whilst that was drying I stamped all the images from the Lovely stamp set onto more watercolour card and used Karin Pro brush Markers to colour the images.

I die cut the rainbow panel using the Double Pierced Rectangle dies  then also cut a strip from the centre using the curved border die from the Slimline Border elle-ments.  I popped the two rainbow die cut pieces up on foam tape them glued the flower elements along the edge and finished with a multi-layered die cut HOORAY in the centre!
