Avery Elle Fall Release Blog Hop


Hey everyone!  Welcome to the Avery Elle Fall 2018 Blog Hop!  Wahoo!

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Caryn Davies' blog.  Otherwise, head to the Avery Elle blog to start from the beginning or if you get lost along the way! 

As always, I'm so excited for this release.  This release is full of fantastic holiday sets with a little bit of everything.  I honestly cannot pick a favorite. Good problem to have, right? :) 

For the release, I played with two sets from this release - Christmas Magic and Starry Scene.  Christmas Magic is a great whimsical, 3x4 mini set complete with a Christmas unicorn!  Starry Scene is a really cool stamp set designed perfectly for creating stamped backgrounds.  I've had this design in my head for so long so I'm very excited to finally see it come to life!


To create my card, I stamped the starry background with Avery Elle Seaglass ink.  Tip - if you're struggling with ink coverage - you can always ink it up with Versamark ink first and then ink with your colored ink!



I stamped, die cut and colored all of the images from Christmas Magic (oh my goodness - this unicorn is my favorite!!!) and then adhered everything to my card with dimensional adhesive.  Finally, I added a sentiment and added some glossy accents, sequins and some bakers twine!

Next stop on the hop - head to Yainea's blog!
