Avery Elle Winter Release 2017 Blog Hop

 It’s release day over at Avery Elle so that means a designer blog hop (starting at the Avery Elle Blog) to showcase all the fabulous new products available right now over in the Avery Elle store!

This release is full of fun stamps and awesome die collections so there’s sure to be something for everyone!  Today I’m, featuring a sweet little set I designed called Windmill.  I had so much fun coming up with this set and I hope you like it as much as I do!!!


I decided a long time ago that this would be a perfect set to use with a paper-piecing technique.  I used my favourite paper pad of all time, the Everyday Collection and created a kind of patchwork effect using all the little scraps I’ve been holding onto forever!!  I stamped out the images I wanted to include onto different patterns and then die cut them using the co-ordinating dies.  A GREAT die collection that partners with this stamp set perfectly is the Picket Fence die set.  I used the grassy border, picket fence and cloud dies to create my little countryside scene.  The path is from the Cityscape collection from the last release.

The sails of the windmill actually turn thanks to a wee brad (crikey – haven’t used one of those in a while!!).

Avery Elle … Winder Woodland Wonders

Hi, it’s Caryn here kicking off a week of Winter Woodland Wonders inspiration!  This set is packed full of cute festive critters and makes scene-building a breeze!

I started with a cream card base and cut a panel using the larges of the Double Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments.  I blended my background using Distress Oxide inks and then splattered a little shimmer spray on it for some subtle texture.

I stamped the robin, polar bear and trees in New Moon Dye Ink and coloured with Copics and added a few details here and there with Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard.  Finally I stamped the sentiment in black and popped my die cut pieces onto the card using foam tape.

Avery Elle … Aloha and Modern Alpha

Hey there!  It’s Monday so I’m over on the Avery Elle Blog today with a couple of cards using some fun Summer release designs to get you in the mood for the impending holiday season!  On both cards today I used different elements from various sets just highlighting how well they all work together!!  Both cards use the same bright, tropical colour palette and similar combination of images but both look completely different in the end result.  The images are coloured with Copics with touches of Glossy Accents and Nuvo Drops for extra dimension.

Don’t know about you but I could really go a nice cocktail right now (it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?)
