Avery Elle Summer Release Blog Hop!


Good morning friends, 

Today is the big day of the Avery Elle Summer 2014 release.  The Avery Elle Design Team is celebrating with a Blog Hop featuring our newest products. 

My card uses the Simply Said: Amazing stamp set and Simply Said Amazing Elle-ment die along with the Burst Elle-ment dies. Along with some Avery Elle pigment inks, I created a fun shaker card.  

I die cut the Burst die on cream card stock and added the color by sponging on Avery Elle pigment inks.  Now for the math- there are 90 sections, so to keep things simple, I worked in groups of 5. 90 divided by 5 is 18, so I decided to use 6 ink shades 3 times.  My first iteration of the card had the ink colors right next to each other,  but I decided that it looked better if I skipped a section between ink colors. The ink colors are Mimosa, Pixie, Sea Glass, Conch Shell, Raspberry and Celery


I covered the opening with acetate and adhered the Amazing word die cut to the acetate.  I added sequins and stamped "you are" from the Simply Said Amazing stamp set onto cream card stock before sealing up the shaker.  I adhered the shaker to a 4.25" note card.
