Its STAMPtember! Avery Elle Collaboration – Sending Christmas Cheer

Its STAMPtember! Avery Elle Collaboration – Sending Christmas Cheer (and my new desk)

Hello everyone! The past two days have been very busy for me and hubby, but good kind of busy. Yesterday we got to meet up with two of my crafty girlfriends, Isha and Beck (they are both here in Phoenix for a Design Team retreat), it was so nice to get together and chat about all sorts of things.

And today we spend the entire evening putting together my new desk (I was using a cheap table from Walmart and just ordered a big new desk recently). I have a photo at the end of this post if you’d like to take a look. And tomorrow we are going to “Junk in a Trunk event here in Phoenix (never been to one, so I’m very excited).

Like this project? Pin it and save for later! 

But today’s post is not about that! STAMPtember is in full swing at Simon Says Stamp and today is yet another collaboration day – Avery Elle! They designed the most gorgeous snowflake set! I love snowflakes and I always hoard good snowflake design stamps and dies so this set just made to the top of my favorites.

First I heat embossed a background using white embossing powder and blended several colors of Distress inks (all listed below) to create a gradient. I made an A2 top folding card base, added a strip of gold glitter paper and adhered my ink blended background on top.

Next I heat embossed a beautiful Sending Christmas Cheer sentiment in white embossing powder onto red cardstock, trimmed into a banner and foam mounted onto my card. I also couldn’t resist heat embossing several snowflakes using Rose Gold embossing powder onto vellum and cutting them out using coordinating dies. I foam mounted them for a pop of dimension. Going through my supplies a few days ago I found a pack of self adhesive sequins so I added those onto my card well. Lastly, I tied a little bow using red and white bakers twine.

Here’s a photo of my desk – I love how much room I have here; I still have lots to organize and some drawers to fill but I am pretty excited!
