Avery Elle June Blog Hop - Oh Yeah!

YAY!  
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I have been for this day to come!  It's Avery Elle's June blog hop and it's also Avery Elle's 1st Birthday!  Hooray!  This hop is also very special to me because I get to showcase a set that I worked with Jamie, from Avery Elle, to create! Jamie brought my ideas and sketches to life and I am so excited to have the stamps in hand.  So, let's meet Oh Yeah, shall we?
Cute, huh?!?!  I wanted a set where I could create my own journaling cards and add little accents to them!  I love the idea of being able to connect the sentiment to the arrow or speech bubble.  The open ended arrows (shown on either side of love in the picture above) are designed to be added to the sentiments so the arrow spells the word.  

Which is exactly how I used them in this card here:

The lines I used on the background of the card are from Texture Tiles: Be Cool and the circles are from Bright Days. 

Next, I used the arrows to create a background patterned paper.  I stamped them once and then filled them in masking the other area and stamping again to create the 'fill' using Texture Tiles: Be Cool.
 

Now let's get to hop business... There's some super cool stuff going on so make sure you follow along on the entire hop.  

Here's the hop order:
Avery Elle / Jamie

Chunyuan Wu
Jennifer Rzasa
Nina Yang
Heather Campbell  <-- You are here!
JJ Bolton
Donna Mikasa
Kasia Curry

Oh Heather, Oh Heather, what can I say? First, the negative speech bubble is a genius idea, then the stamped journaling card is another, then the open arrow, then the strips in the background, then the "texture-fills"... I died, period. I think you just started a new trend here! Congrats, lady!
