Chevrons

Hi friends!  
I'm back from Utah and I think I might finally be caught on sleep but, wow, was that ever fun!  I met some of the sweetest, most fun ladies and was able to tour a few really awesome craft places. 

Anyways, I'm up on the Avery Elle blog today and I'm sharing cards using the new Avery Elle chevron dies.  For my first card, I used the Chevron Bits die.
To make this card I stamped the sentiment first, which is from Handwritten Notes Clear Photopolymer stamp set and then die cut the chevrons from Avery Elle cardstock.  After adhering the chevrons where I wanted them, I cut out the chevron shape again.   Then, I simply used scor tape in the negative spaced and poured glitter into the negative space.   To finished the card off, I went a little crazy and adhered a bunch of enamel dots.  Yeah, I bought a few packs while I was in Utah!
Next up, I used the Chevron Border die and stamps from To The Point Clear Photopolymer stamp set, along with a sentiment from Handwritten Notes.  I used sequins in the negative space and simply adhered them with scor tape.  
Lastly, I have a card to share using The Man clear photopolymer stamp set.  Obviously, I was in a very rainbow mood and decided to carry over the feeling and creating something that has nothing to do with Father's day (or for a man, in general!  Whoops!)   The sentiment is from Celebrate Clear Pholopolymer stamp set
That's all from me right now.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I love these! The Chevron Bits die is on its way to me now and as soon as the Chevron Border die is back in stock, it will be coming to live in my craft room, too. Maybe even along with the Handwritten Notes set :-)
