Decembrrr with Heather P.

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here with my take on this month's stamp set, Decembrrr! :)

To create my first tag, I started by die cutting a tag shape, then stamping one of the snowflake images repeatedly on white CS in versamark ink before heat embossing with white powder.  Once that was done, I used a blending tool and some peacock feathers distress ink to add some beautiful color to the background.  I really love the way the images POP.  Next, I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of gray CS, and heat embossed it as well with white embossing powder.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the tag front, and embellished with silver metallic twine and clear gems.

For my next tag, I started by die cutting a tag shape, then stamping the sentiment and some snowflakes in versamark before heat embossing with white powder.  I then die cut three circle garlands, and adhered them to the tag front before covering them with stickles.  I then stamped the snowman image in gray ink onto white CS, and fussy cut him out.  To finish up, I adhered the snowman to the tag front with pop dots and embellished with some unraveled twine.

For my last tag, I started by cutting a tag shape, then removing some of the CS from each side to make it a little narrower.  I then stamped three different snowflake images in pink, lime and purple over the tag base.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in versamark ink onto pink CS, and heat embossed with white powder.  I then stamped the snowman image in lime ink onto white CS, and fussy cut him out before attaching to the tag front with pop dots.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the tag front with pop dots, and embellished with purple twine.

On a side note, I too wanted to let you know that this will be my last post for Avocado Arts. The past year has been amazing, and what an honor it has been to work with such phenomenal women! Thank you for everything, Michelle, you are without a doubt one of the most generous and kind-hearted people I've had the pleasure to meet through this hobby we all love so much! ♥

Decembrrr with Jo Thompson

Jo has created some JAW-DROPPING projects that are simply AMAZING!!!  Enjoy!

Happy Tuesday, Jo here for you today. I can't wait to share my projects using the new stamp set Decembrrr.

Let's Go!

Card 1: Thanks SNOW much
I made an oval easel card. Not your traditional Christmas color combo, but I went for a frosty bold look with the blue & black. I created this cute winter scene using the snowman, snowflakes and tree images. All colored with my Copics. For the puffy snow, I used Liquid Applique in white, love the dimensional effect it gives. The sentiments "Decembrrr" & "Thanks SNOW much" are one of the many from the stamp set. I added some snowflake die cuts and flowers to finish the card.

Tag 1: SNOW good to see you
Next up, I made this cute reindeer tag. The reindeer is from the Hollydays stamp set.

I used the tree image again, stamped and fussy cut it out several times to use in the background. "SNOW good to see you" is another sentiment in the Decembrrr stamp set. I coordinated this tag with my previous card. Oh did I forget to mention that I added the biggest red shiner for the nose? Adorbs!

Tag 2: You're SNOW wonderful
For my second tag, I used the pair of penguins in the stamp set. I colored them with my Copics and fussy cut them. Look they're holding hands! LOL I had this snowflake doily die and cut it twice, added some dimensional foam adhesive and layered them. I doodled some dots for a pierced look on the background. I used more of that Liquid Applique for the snow effect. The "You're SNOW wonderful" is yet another phrase included in the set. 

Hope you enjoyed my projects for you. Thanks for stopping in today!

Decembrrrr with Tenia Nelson

 Tenia has some BEAUTIFUL projects to share with you today using our new stamp set Decembrrrr.  

Hey Y'all 

Hope all is well!! Tenia here showing y'all what I did with the Avocado Arts Decembrrrr stamp set!

Here is Card One.....CHECK IT!!!!

First I created the card from the blue/turquoise cardstock. Then I stamped the images and sentiment onto white cardstock and I also splattered Fireworks Craft Spray onto cardstock. I adhered the image panel onto dark blue/navy cardstock. I adhered the whole panel onto the card using pop up dots. Lastly I added washi tape and sequins to card.

Here is Card Two.......CHECK IT!!!!

First I created the card from green cardstock. Then I adhered the patterned paper onto card. I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock using watermark ink and I heat embossed sentiment using red embossing powder. I die cut the sentiment panel using a Circle die cut and Big Shot. I also die cut the number and adhered them onto the sentiment panel. I adhered the sentiment panel onto the card using pop up dots and I added sequins.

And here's a tag......CHECK IT!!!

First I cut out the tag using kraft cardstock, tag die and Big Shot. After that I stamped the tree with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored the tree with a gel pen and with a Faber-Castell Stamper's Pen. I punched a hole into the tag using Crop-O-Dile punch. I added twine to the top of the tag and I added sequins and stickers to tag.

Make sure that y'all check out what the other awesome ladies of Avocado Arts created. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!


Amazing job Tenia!  Feeling the HOLIDAY SPIRIT with your projects.  Have a great day everyone!
