Avery Elle Release Week Day #3 ~ Merry & Bright


Back today with another Avery Elle new release!   Today we're showcasing a set called Merry & Bright!  Is it geeky to say that I love fonts?  Something about finding the perfect font is so satisfying:)  If you're a font or typography fan too, you'll love this set!  

 

Today I have 2 cards to share, one traditional and one a little more colorful!  For this first card, I heat embossed the large type stamp in clear and covered it with deep dark red ink.  You could heat emboss white onto red cardstock, but I find the blended ink to have a bit more warmth.  


For this second card, I heat embossed the same stamp again in clear and blended some neon green ink over it.  I cropped the image under the Polaroid frame from Picture It.  The rest of the sentiment is stamped in hot pink onto one of the flags from To the Point.  I still wanted to keep it clean and white, but this card needed just a little something more.  A little bit of flair from my pal Joscelyn Cutchens was the perfect thing!        


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

  13. I never thought about it before, but you're totally right - the inking DOES have more warmth to it. I must give this technique a try with the framing...I love it :) And the funky neon green? Too cool & fun!

  14. That wood grain is a real stand out on both of these!! It is so clean and really draws your eye to the sentiments! And wow what a contrast between the two - the first looks so classic and traditional and the second so modern and fresh!
