A few months ago, the Avery Elle Design Team got to talking and thought it would be fun to share a project that uses our favorite Avery Elle stamps from the entire first year, to celebrate Avery Elle's 1st birthday.
Yeah, talk about Mission Impossible. One single favorite Avery Elle stamp set. Does that even exist? I love so many of them that I simply couldn't decide on just one... so you're getting a few from me. :)
To make this card, I stamped the background, leaving an open spot of where I'd put the sentiment and die cut flowers. Then layered it with vellum and stitched the periphery to keep the vellum down. Finally I stamped the sentiment, from Oh Happy Day clear photopolymer stamp set and flowers again, but this time with the die cuts.
My next card uses a bunch of stamp sets... I will be the first to admit that I simply can't sit down and create a card with just one set.
Now for something really cool... To celebrate, all week long you can center to win this custom Avery Elle 4 x 6" address stamp set with your personal information on it. *Please note that it will take approx. 4 weeks from the time the winner contacts us to the time the winner will be shipped the set.*

When I saw the Papel Picado Banners clear photopolymer stamp set from Avery Elle I gasped with excitement. Not because I knew exactly what I wanted to do with but because I hadn't seen anything like it! Confession: I actually had to google Papel Picado to see what it meant... and I found this!
Oh, and I found this too...
So, that became my inspiration for this...
I love these banners and I can't wait to try something with the coordinating dies!
I'm back and with another just for fun post! For my card today, I used Neat & Tangled's Sparkle and Shine. To say I freaked out over this stamp set for the first time would be the biggest understatement ever. I love every single image in this set.
So lets get to the card, shall we?
To make this card, I stamped both sentiments (I'm totally giggling at you, Ashley) and the diamonds. To give the diamonds a little color, and because I'm not really a huge coloring person, I just turned the stamps around and stamped with the reverse side of the stamp in the color I wanted them. I simply stamped them on a scrap paper first to achieve the lighter color.
Then, I added washi tape to the top and bottom to give it a border. I could have stamped it but I love using up my washi tape stash. Don't worry, I love this roll of washi tape so much that I bought two. LOL! The bakers twine is from The Twinery. I LOVE their twine!
That glitter paper is a new find and I am in heaven! It's by DCWV the Cardstock Stack 6x6 pad Glitzy Glitter. It's amazing!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have an incredible day!
Ever get a stamp set you just can't wait to ink up? Yeah, that's me with solid floral sets... I seriously love them. Can't get enough of them. It's an addiction. I need to go to solid floral stampers anonymous.
So when Wplus9 came out with Fresh Cut Florals my heart skipped a beat. Maybe even two! Eek, how awesome is this set?!?! I could just stare at it for hours... the potential with this set just makes me happy!
I'm giving you fair warning right now that you'll be seeing me pull this set out again! :)I also got some new Fresh Inks that I couldn't wait to try out!
Today is a fun day because Imagine Crafts / Tsukineko & Avery Elle
have paired up for a blog hop! There are going to
be a lot of amazing projects on the hop today showing how well Avery
Elle and Imagine Crafts / Tsukineko products work together.
I have been having a blast with Tsukineko inks! For the hop, I worked with Ikat Additions. Both sentiments are actually from Oh Happy Day, too!
For this first card, I used the Tsukineko VersaMagic Chalk ink in Aquatic Splash and Key Lime. I love these bright colors.
For this card, I found quite possibly my most favorite sentiment ink ever. It's Tsukineko Brilliance Starlite Black. It's shiny and just a hint grey. Oh em gee, I love it! I used Tsukineko VersaMagic chalk ink in Pretty Petunia and Spring Pansy.
have a fun giveaway, so be sure to visit
all of the blogs participating.
Now it is time for our giveaway! Leave a comment below and/or on any of
the posts in the hop to be entered to win. We will be selecting two

Happy Monday! It's been awhile since I shared a just-for-fun (JFF) card... so today, I'm doing just that!
I love using colored card bases and for this card I actually stamped the stitched flower onto the base. Everything else is paper-pieced with some adorable Lawn Fawn patterned paper. That yummy twine is Lawn Fawn too! The stamps are from Paper Smooches Needle Little Love and that great rectangle die is Lil' Inker Stitched Mats.
It's my day on the Avery Elle blog and I have two cards to share using the new Modern Leaves Clear photopolymer stamp set. I love these leaves and I love the sentiment font even more! For my first card, I used the front and back of the same stamp to create this graphic pattern.
For my second card, I used that circle and used the same technique stamping the back of the stamp first. This time, I stamped it off once and then onto the card with a second generation of the ink. Then, I stamped with the front of the stamp in the original ink color.
