Avery Elle new release blog hop!

Hi there!

I am beyond excited for the new release of the spring collection over at Avery Elle! Everything new can be purchased right now in their store, or through your favorite retailer.

I designed 4 stamp sets in this collection, which was shown off last month at the Creativation show:


Beary Good Friends, Hot Dog, Astronauts, and a little Easter mini called Hoppy Easter:


Today, I'm showing off a little out-of-this-world inspiration! I have 3 cards to share, all using the new Astronauts stamp set:

When I was drawing this set, I had in mind that the astronaut could hold hands with the alien - I love how it turned out! I did some ink blending with Oxide inks for the background and flicked water over it to get that bokeh reaction.  I also flicked white paint on top to give it more of a galaxy look.

I love that crater/moon image - just a tiny bit of shading using some light grey copic markers is all it takes!

My second card shows off the 3rd astronaut and a few other images from the set:

The moon is handing the astronaut his birthday cake and they both have party hats! I also have the astronaut holding a rocket balloon and used a party-ready sentiment from the set. It's hard to tell from the photo, but I covered the astronaut's face with glossy accents - it's so fun in real life!

Behind the images, I used a new die that is meant to coordinate with this stamp set: the Constellation Scene die set. It's a must-have, in my opinion! I love the wonky shape of the outline die, and then I cut into the shape using all of the constellation dies. Such a fun way to add a galaxy background!

My 3rd card features 2 of the astronauts together in space:

This post is getting a little long-winded so all I'll say about this one is I love them together! It would make for cute class valentines for next year (or this year if you run last minute!)

If you made it this far - you're a star! I'm last on the blog hop list for today, but in case you came here out of order, here's a full list!
