Avery Elle Release Week Day #1 ~ Warm Wishes


Happy November people!  Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween:)  I'm so excited because over the next 5 days, I'll be introducing you to 4 awesome stamp sets from Avery Elle!  Today we're all featuring projects using the new set Warm Wishes!  


I don't know about you, but when it comes to cards, I jump straight from Halloween to Christmas!  Christmas is my favorite!  When I was a little girl in Hawaii, we had a cardboard fireplace that my dad would put up every year because we didn't have anything even resembling a fireplace, lol.  (Ever try to hang a stocking on a cardboard fireplace?  Not the easiest thing.)  So now that I live on the East Coast, I enjoy winter and all the stuff that comes with it.  

Because I love the Christmas so much, it was a pleasure to pull out all the holiday goodness in Warm Wishes!  This first card was made with just 2 stamps, the holly leaves and berries.  I penciled in a circle using one of my dies and just stamped the leaves multiple times in 3 different greens.  The bow is from Fanfare, but the Warm Wishes set also has a bow you could use:)  So, so easy!  And easy to make it a one layer card for mailing.  


My next card is just a little mini card with just a teeny stamp:)  I edged the card with my Sakura gel pen for a little more sparkle:)


Thanks for stopping by today!  Click on over to see more projects from Jamie, Heather, Kasia, and Chunyuan!

  10. Oooh, love these both!!! Great size and shape. That tiny candle has such a big impact with the yellow burst behind it. Such a FANTASTIC design!

    My grandma had a cardboard fireplace too. I was about 6 or 7 when I finally realized that it wasn't a real fireplace!
