Avery Elle Favorites

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.  
This card uses the sentiment and speech bubble from Oh Yeah clear photopolymer stamp set, the geometric border is from All Squared Up clear photopolymer stamp set, the arrows are from Air Mail clear photopolymer stamp set and the hearts are from Simply Tags Everyday clear photopolymer stamp 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.*
