Avery Elle … Camping Critters and Stay Cool – Summer release

Hey there! Here today with some inspiration using some of the brand new products from the amazing Summer release.

My first card features the fabulous new Stay Cool stamp set along with my all time favourite die – the Waves background die. Not only does it create the most amazing die-cut, but it makes the BEST DIY stencil too! A wee tip when using this die as a stencil is to use a temporary adhesive spray as the “strands” are less likely to move around when you’re blending over it.

I blended some funky Summer colours over my stencil to create the backdrop for that seriously cool bear! I then stamped, coloured and die cut the bear and sentiment bubble and popped him on the card using an action wobble gizmo.

I finished off by stamping some stars in black and added some glossy accents to his shades!

The next card I’m sharing with you today features the new Camping Critters stamp set.  You can create adorable scenes using this cute set – that wee mouse is just so sweet!

I blended my night sky and added some splatters of white acrylic paint to add a starry effect.

Next I used the Custom Panels die set to create masks so I could add some hills.

With my background done  I stamped, coloured and die cut my elements and popped them onto the card to create a cute little camping scene.

Supplies:

Stay Cool Clear Stamps

Stay Cool Elle-ments

Avery Elle Summer 2020 Release Blog Hop

Well, hello there! I know I’ve been MIA from my blog for months – it’s been a very weird time for everyone. I hope you’ve all stayed safe and managed to keep yourselves healthy and happy. I’ve immersed myself in my garden, decorating, upcycling, baking, etc. My crafty mojo went missing along the road too but I’m BACK with renewed enthusiasm and vigour! How could I not be with such an AMAZING new release to work with?!!

I have two new floral designs in this release –Tropical Bouquet and Poppies. I love floral stamps and the never ending colour options they allow. Today I’m featuring the Tropical Bouquet set and have two cards to share:

Avery Elle Tropical Bouquet Clear Stamps

I blended some Lemongrass Pigment ink onto my card base and then I used a make up sponge technique to add colour to the centres of the flowers and to the edges of the leaves. After die cutting my elements I assembled them into a cluster and stamped the sentiment.

I have another card to share today this time pairing the Tropical Bouquet set with a cool stamp from the Peek-a-Boo Coaster set. To me, the track from the Coaster set looks a bit like a trellis so I stamped it in green along the left edge of my card base. I then added the flowers and leaves as though they are climbing up the trellis and finished off with a sentiment.

Supplies used:

Tropical Bouquet Clear Stamps

Tropical Bouquet Elle-ments

Peek-a-Boo Coaster Clear Stamps

Lemongrass Pigment Ink

I hope these cards have added some sunshine and happiness to your day wherever you are? Your next stop on the blog hop is with my buddy Heather Campbell – have fun!!!

Avery Elle … Speech Bubbles

Hello Avery Elle friends.  Caryn here with a cute card which pairs up a few of the new Spring 2020 release products for a fun birthday card.  I started with a white card base and cut a smaller panel and adhered a strip of paper from the Spring Collection Paper pad down the centre.  I then die cut a small panel out of woodgrain cardstock onto which the elements of my card will go using the Double Pierced Rectangle die collection.  

I then stamped one of the cute dogs from the Hot Dog stamp set and coloured him with Copics and die cut the Speech Bubble and stamped Make a Wish onto it. 

I finished off by die-cutting a number 8 from the Party Numbers die set and adhered it onto my panel.

Supplies:

Speech Bubbles Clear Stamps

Avery Elle … Loads of Happy

Hey there.  Caryn here with a look at the awesome Loads of Happy stamp set and co-ordinating dies I love the scale and font in this set and how the set includes the shadow die as well as the regular word die.  Instead of creating a mat with it I used it to create a negative space on the white die-cut layer on my card front and put the Happy die cut into it.  I love how this technique gives a look of depth without adding any actual thickness to the card. 

To create more dimension I die cut the word Happy twice from white cardstock, then once from red and adhered them together.  I then added some Diamond Glaze onto that for some gloss.

I haven’t played with the Hello Chum set in a while so thought this would be a good opportunity to grab one of my favourite sharks and add him to the card.

Loads of Happy Clear Stamps

Avery Elle … Astronauts

Hey there, it’s Caryn here today with a one-layer card using the fabulous Astronauts stamp set. 

I wanted the little space folk to pop off the card without adding any thickness as this card will be posted.  I achieved a LOOK of dimension (without the bulk) by using some ink blending techniques with some masking.

I started by stamping the moon, astronauts, stars and rocket onto my base card then stamped again on masking paper and then covered up the images on the card.

I used Distress oxide inks to add a “glow” to the moon and stars using Squeezed Lemonade ink.  I then blended (avoided the yellow as much as possible some Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass to create my galaxy background  To add more texture I splattered the whole card using both Avery Elle Shimmer spray and Picket Fence Distress Spray.  

Once I was happy that was all dry I removed the masks and added a small amount of colour to the images just to give some shadows and highlights.

Supplies:

Astronauts Stamp Set

Clear Shimmer Spray

Avery Elle … Hoppy Easter

Hello, I’m here today with a cute little card using the Hoppy Easter stamp set.  Don’t let the teeny size of this set fool you – you can create some gorgeous, festive scenes like I have here.

I started with a 4-bar sized card (31/2 by 4 7/8″) and cut a small panel of yellow card for the front which I splattered with white paint (Distress stain in Picket Fence).  Meanwhile I blended some Distress Oxide inks onto some white card and then die cut a frame using Wonky Scalloped Frames which I adhered to the front of the card.

I stamped the images in Fog Dye Ink and then coloured them using pastel shades of Copics blending them on the egg to give a pretty pastel rainbow effect.  Once they were die cut I arranged them on the front of the card and finished by stamping my sentiment in Fog and adding a fluffy bunny tail using a teeny white pom pom

Avery Elle … Gifted (with video)

Hey there, here today with a couple of ideas for using the GIFTED stamp set along with the Party Tags Elle-ments and a few other gorgeous products from the latest release.

I created a wee video to show how this first project came together.  The idea sprang from seeing a big bag of carrot gummies on Amazon, lol!  I had some cone shaped treat bags in my stash, Mermaid Hemp Twine and some gorgeous green silk ribbon I saved from a Christmas gift so thought this would make a sweet Easter or Spring themed gift!

I created a little scene using some images from the Beary Good Friends set and some masking – how cute is that bunny?  As usual I had to give that bunny tail some dimension so I used the Neon Amplify product which puffs up when you heat it (would be great for snow scenes too I think!)

Here’s another tag, this time using one of the images from the Sunflowers stamp set and some pretty yellow grosgrain ribbon.

I wanted the heart to sit under the “made with” part of the sentiment so I simply snipped the stamp with a pair of sharp scissors to separate it!

Gifted Clear Stamps

Party Tags Elle-ments

Avery Elle … Peek-a-Boo Pals: Jungle

Well HELLO there Avery Elle fans!  Today I’m excited to share a card using the fabulous PEEK-A-BOO JUNGLE PALS stamp set and to show you how I paired it with some other amazing new products from the Spring 2020 release.
I just love these peek-a-boo critters – every one of them is so cute and I just love how all the sets can co-ordinate.  So clever.
I started with a white card base and blended some pigment inks (Lemongrass and Jungle) onto it.  I splattered some white paint and set it aside to dry.
Next I blended some JungleLemongrass and Celery pigment inks onto some card and then die cut it using the Leafy Frames die.  I adhered this to the card base using foam tape.

I stamped, coloured (Copics) and die cut the jungle pals and for my sentiment I used the Loads of Happy set.  I die cut the skinny “Happy” die and added some touches of colour then adhered it to the card.  I went over it with Crystal Effects to give it some glossy dimension and finished by stamping the birthday block stamp in Jungle pigment ink.
