Avery Elle: October Release Day #1 ~ Fanfare



Happy Monday people!  I'm excited because over the next 3 days, we'll be introducing you to 2 awesome stamp sets and 3 new color options from Avery Elle!  The new colors to add to your stash are Cherry (a lovely red), New Moon (true black), and...wait for it...Fog (gray!  feel free to fist pump;).  And today we're all featuring projects using the new set "Fanfare"!  Let's get to it, shall we?


There are so many cute images in this set, but I was drawn to the long background builder stamp.  So many possibilities!  I saw waves, fish scales, clouds, and...Christmas trees!  For my first tree card, I hand cut the tree and popped it up on to the card.  I added a few cardinals that I cut out with my Silhouette, but you could also try embellishing with ribbon bows, gems, or sequins.  Nice and CAS (great if you need to make multiples;).


For this next project, I used the negative die cut to create a tree tag.  For decoration, I used paint dots.  {BTW, I use Tulip Beads in a Bottle paint which gives perfectly round dots}  If you have a Silhouette, click here for the cut file for this tag!  {Please note the terms of use for this cut file here}


For my last Fanfare card, I used the same stamp with a completely different look!  I heat embossed the stamp in white and blended a rainbow over it!  It's almost therapeutic to blend ink like this:)  Messy but lots of fun!


That's it for me today!  Click on over to see more projects from Jamie, Heather, Kasia, and Chunyuan!

  4. First of all, I love how you used that background builder stamp ... you really worked it! The trees are just perfect for that, who knew?! And secondly, speaking of trees, I was in Barnes and Noble this wkd and saw your stripe Christmas tree in the PC Christmas special. WOAH, I. LOVE. IT. So super stunning, but simple to create once you see the idea. Fantastic, JJ!
