Avery Elle Spring 2018 Release Blog Hop

 Hello there!  Today is the day the much anticipated Spring 2018 Release from Avery Elle is available to purchase.  The release was so well received when it was revealed at Creativation last month and I have been DYING to be able to share some of the projects I’ve been creating.  Oh and you should’ve arrived here from the Avery Elle Blog but if you’re lost and want to go back to the start all the links and instructions can be found below:

I’m featuring a fabulous new sentiment set called Loads of Wishes.   It combines 2 gorgeous fonts and offers all the sentiments you need for the most commonly created cards.  On both my samples I’ve used Happy Birthday (I have a LOT of them coming up so needed to stock up).

 My first sample uses a STUNNING new stamp set called Hand Drawn Florals (fun fact – Jamie’s 15 year old daughter actually designed this set – I’m concerned for my competition!!!).  It’s such a fun set to colour and I can see this one being VERY popular!

I stamped the images using Avery Elle Fog Dye Ink (alcohol marker-friendly) and coloured them in an aqua tone using Copics.  I decided to fussy cut the flowers rather than using the co-ordinating elle-ments on this occasion although I did use them them to cut out the little bud images.  I added little droplets of diamond glaze (you could also use Glossy Accents) to the centres of the flowers – I love how it looks like dew!




To create the frame I used another brand new product, Pierced Mat Elle-ments (together with our popular Double Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments).  These are so versatile – you can create frames, mats, apertures etc.  I love them!

Supplies used:

I created another card and this time paired it with some of our older products that i thought needed some love!  I stamped some of the images from our Butterflies stamp set in Versamark and heat embossed them using Avery Elle Fine Pure White Embossing Powder.  I coloured them with Zig Clean Colour Markers and gave them a slight “aura” using a great marker to make them just pop a little.  I created the mat using a combination of Pierced Rectangles and Dotted Borders Elle-ments.

Supplies used:

Phew – that was a long post!!  If you’re still with me – THANK YOU!  Now you need to pop along to my wonderful friend and teamie, Heather to see what delights she has in store using the new release.  Happy Hopping!!
