Avery Elle: Simply Tags ~ Christmas

Hi guys!  I'm playing around with the new Avery Elle set from my pal, the so-very-talented Nina Yang! Nina is so good at designing well-rounded sets with endless options!  This set happens to have 2 matching die sets, but I worked with the stamps and dies here...


When I saw those dies, my eyes went straight to that ornament topper!  Oh, ornament topper, where have you been all my life?  That little die inspired me to take this set in a different holiday direction:)  I paired the topper with the Rounded Diamond dies to make reverse cut, glitter ornaments.  Ummm, gold, reverse cut, glitter ornaments?  Love.love.love.


For a little more detail, I used the snowflake image to stamp a design on the glitter paper.    The sentiment is from Winter Wreath and it's heat embossed in what else?  Gold:)  I think I'm going to try this technique with the Modern Leaves dies too!  


So happy to have another Christmas card to add to the stack!  Thanks for checking in today!!!  Don't forget to visit Heather who has a beautiful fall card today!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  11. JJ, you are simply the most innovative die gal there is. Period. GENIUS. Absolutely freaking genius. And look at all that black cardstock and nary a stray spot of glitter or embossing powder. (bows down Wayne & Garth style....I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!)

  12. Wow, I had to re-read your instructions. A friend just gave me some glitter paper and I would not have thought to stamp on it (for some reason). I love the negative glitter ornaments. So pretty. Thanks for the inspiration to try this techique.
