Avery Elle / Winter Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Winter 2022 Release from Avery Elle!!  
We have an amazing blog hop full of inspiration today and are so glad that you are here. 

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.

 This new stamp and die set.....Sentimental Occasions will surely be a HUGE hit!  

How cute are these birds from So Tweet??  I was so excited to pair these two sets together AND create my first Valentine card!  The background was made using Broken China Distress Ink blended halfway onto a white panel.  A frame from Pierced Birthday Frame Elle-ments was added with foam adhesive along with the birds "on a wire"!  A few die cut hearts adorned with a glitter pen finished the card.

Let's get to the hop!!

Avery Elle / Happy Tags Holiday

Hi everyone!
I am here today sharing some holiday tags using the 
Happy Tags and Happy Tags Holiday from Avery Elle.  

I used several images from other Avery Elle sets including Ho-Ho-Holiday and Carolers.  Each tag was made using the Snowy Tags Elle-ments and a little ink blending using Broken China Distress Ink.  The Snowy Tags have the added tag attached from Happy Tags Holiday and a supporting sentiment.  Each of the added tags were die cut from glitter cardstock for that extra sparkle!

Avery Elle / Ho Ho Holiday

Hi there!
I'm here with the cute Santa and reindeer from Ho-Ho-Holiday!

The Santa, package, reindeer, and present sack were all Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating Ho-Ho-Holiday Elle-ments.  The scene was created using a top folded notecard that was ink blended halfway and white splatters were added to make a snowy scene.  Below the snowy backdrop, a section of striped cardstock (made by cutting 1/4" strips) was added to "ground" the images.  A sentiment was stamped in bold black ink and the images added with foam adhesive.

Avery Elle / Carolers

I'm here with a mini-slim size card using the adorable images from the Carolers from Avery Elle.


TIP:  Do you love to color?  I do, but sometimes images can be non-colored with pops of color in other ways.  The images I've chosen from the Carolers all have striped hats, scarves, hems and collars.  This is a perfect way to add color!  I went with rainbow for LOTS of color!  To give some shading to the images, they were lined with N1 Copic and blended out with the colorless blender.

All the main images were added with foam adhesive to a mini slim card panel that was ink blended with Stormy Sky and Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Inks and a splattering of white pigment ink for snow.  The snow bank was created using the Slimline Borders Elle-ments and fine glitter added to the edge.

WFC202210-421160 Winter Crystal Die-Amy Kolling-2

The new release is fabulous!  I have 3 cards to share using products from Waffleflower.

My first card uses the Winter Crystal Die.  I've paired it over a background done in white using the Dashed Rhombus Panel.  The Winter Crystal Die is a set of three.  My card uses the snowflake image done in navy, the next layer in white, and the background in grey.  Shimmer Spray was spritzed over the entire panel and a few Waffleflower Glitter Enamel Dots were added.  I love the sentiment from Sentiment Additions 2.

My next card uses the adorable little skating images from Winter Fun and the Winter Lake Die.  

It was fun to ink blend and paper piece this scene!  These images were Copic colored, die cut, and added across the scene.  Areas of blue were ink blended over the panel.

My final card uses the Winter Fun stamp and die set along with the Snowflake Background stencil along a mini slim size card.  

The edges of the layers, which give interest, were scored using a Scor-pal.  The images were lined up using one of the score lines to "ground" them.  Each full stenciled snowflake was embellished with a white pearl.  The sentiment is from one of my favorite sets, Sentiment Additions 2.

Avery Elle / Happy Owlidays

I have some quick festive holiday tags to share today.  I am always needing some tags for last minute gifts around the holidays.  Avery Elle has a fantastic new tag!

Happy Owlidays2

I thought it would be fun to use the quirky owls from Happy Owlidays along with the Snowy Tags Elle-ments.  All the images were Copic colored and highlights added with a white pigment pen.  Chunky glitter was added around the tags to make the snow glisten.  

The Snowy Tags Elle-ments is a MUST HAVE staple for ANY season!  It comes as two piece die set and the main tag die is pierced!  I love that feature making so useful for other holidays!

Happy Owlidays
