Avery Elle Fall 2018 Release Blog Hop

Hey there, happy to be sharing a card today as part of the Avery Elle Fall 2018 release blog hop.  You should have arrived from the Avery Elle Blog but if not, you can find a full list at the bottom of this post!
Today, I’m featuring a couple of new sets which are now available in the store – Merry Merry and Quirky Christmas.  I wanted to create a card that I thought would be an easy one to mass-produce for the holidays so I grabbed my MISTI and some Avery Elle pigment inks and created this:
The Merry Merry set is along the same lines as the Big Birthday set released in the Summer – it has a fabulous combination of fonts which can be the real focus of the card on their own.  I die cut a mat using the Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments and then used the MISTI to stamp the Merry at the top using Cherry ink and then used Cherry and Vino for the ombre effect on the bottom.  I LOVE using this technique and it’s so easy with the MISTI.  It adds SO much more to the card for very little effort (important when you’re creating for the holidays I think, lol)!
The tree (from the new Quirky Christmas set) was stamped using the same inks and then to finish I overstamped with Versamark and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.  It adds a little more interest and lifts the card.
So there you have it – your next stop is my chum Heather – happy hopping!!!
