Have you heard the amazing news? Avery Elle has came out with their own brand of ink pads!
Yep! Ink! 15 colors and they are all stunning!
They're pigment, which I love because the colors always turn out gorgeous and offer a nice solid coverage! These are fast drying too, which is awesome! Did I mention the colors are amazing?
I was lucky enough to travel to CHA and work in the Avery Elle booth, which meant I got to play with these inks and *squeal* bring a set home with me!
To support the Avery Elle ink release, I thought I'd make a few quick cards with the new ink to show off the gorgeous colors. On all of my cards, I wrote the ink color name as close the the stamped image as possible.
For this card, I created a card base from Silver Fox cardstock and a nesting Ultra Smooth Pure White layer, which I stamped the balloon dog from Party Animal in Lemon Grass, Mint To Be and Aquamarine.
Next, I had to play with the pink inks. I'm a stamper and I love the color pink. Sadly, pinks do not always equate to great ink colors. NOT THESE PINKS - they're incredible! I stamped and die cut the flowers from Petals & Stems in Pixie (the prettiest light pink) and Raspberry (a nice darker pink) and the branches are from Laurels, which I stamped in Lemon Grass. That pinked layer is the largest Pinked Avery Elle die.
With two cards complete, I felt compelled to use all of the inks so you could see all of the great colors put to use on a card but I needed to find a way to use them at once since I didn't have a ton of time. So I came up with this... I stamped the banner from Build a Banner and a sentiment from Petals & Stems. I used circles from Picture It and Circle It.
I'm so glad I had the opportunity to play with all of these inks already! They've already overtaken my first shelf of inks and I know they'll be my go-to inks!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and have a great day!
