Watercolor Wedding invitation with Avery Elle

Hello there!

Today I'm featuring the Modern Calligraphy stamp sets. I'm super excited about the new release and about this sets in particular, how gorgeous are these calligraphy letters?? I'm in love!

I have tons of ideas for them but the first thing that came into my mind was wedding invitations. There are tons of ideas in Pinterest to help making wedding invitations and I decided to go with something simple and fun to create but that looks special.


I stamped everything with Versmark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I rubbed two colors of Distress ink on my clear block and mixed with water to use them as watercolors.

Watercolor backgrounds are easy to create and I love that every invitation will be unique. To finish the invitations I die cut each piece using the Double Pierced Rectangle dies added a little piece of wood with a white cardstock heart and tied some rustic twine all around the panel.

I decided to create a matching envelope using the same technique but decorating just a stripe.


Of course, this desgin is very versatile, you can use it for a hello, miss you, thank you, or birthday card... just have fun! :)

I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Avery Elle Winter release blog hop

Hello and welcome to the Avery Elle Winter release blog hop!


This new release is full of cute sets and we have some Valentine's products to startwith our love projects! Today I'm featuring the super fun Lava You set and here's my card for the hop:


I wanted to have two volcanoes in my card so I masked one and stamped the other overlapped a bit on top of the first one.

I colored them with Copic markers and used my Wink of Stella pen and Glossy Accents on the lava and hearts to add some sparkle.
To frame the scene I used another new product, the Large Pierced Scallop set of dies. Then I heat embossed the sentiment on a black banner and added a wooden heart and some twine as a finishing touch. I hope you like it!

Festive wreath AE Christmas card

Hello there!

I'm here today with a Christmas card featuring the gorgeous Festive Wreath stamps and dies. I started my card by stamping some of the included images on watercolor paper and coloring them with Distress inks. I rubbed the ink pads on an acrylic block and colored the images with a brush adding some water to the inks, using them as regular watercolors.


When the ink was dry, I used the coordinating dies and my die cutting machine to die cut all the images. For the sentiment, I used a banner from and stamped one of the sentiments included in the Festive Wreath set, with a partial stamping techinque.

I then die cut my background paper with the dies and adhere everything on top. As a finishing touch I used my Wink of Stella pen and some Glossy accents on the berries but it's difficult to see the sparkling on the pictures.


I hope you feel inspired to go to your crafty space and create some Christmas cards with this beautiful set! ;)
Have a nice day!

Snowflakes Christmas card with Avery Elle

Hello there!
I'm popping here today with a Christmas card featuring the gorgeous Snowflakes stamps and dies. This set is perfect to create a lot of different cards and try different techniques.


I started by stamping the snowflakes with Versamark ink on vellum and then heat emboss them.
I used the Wonky Stitched dies to cut my base panel, I wanted a watercolor background for my card so I took some Distress inks, rubbed the ink pads on my acrylic block, added water and then I just used them like regular watercolors, adding different colors in different layers to achieve that effect.


Then, I used a Perfect Pearls spray on top to add some shine and adhered the sentiment and snowflakes. Finally, I adhered my panel to a white card base and the card was done. So fun! :)
I hope you like it!

Have an amazing day!
