Avery Elle Summer Release Blog Hop!


Hello friends, 

Today's the day where we are celebrating Avery Elle's Summer Release.  I'm featuring the Tough Guy stamp set and coordinating die.  This set is so much fun and inspired me to make a retro circus strongman card: 


I stamped and colored the Tough Guy with Copic Markers and die cut him with the coordinating die.  Once he was colored in, I settled upon the anchor as his chest tattoo- how fun is it to customize his tattoos?  Seriously- such a cool feature of this set. 


I wanted to create a retro circus tent surrounding for the strongman and created that using the Custom Panel Elle-ments Dies. I stamped the star tattoos included in the set in what's supposed to represent the audience.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto a banner die included with the Pierced Banner Layer Elle-ments set and adhered all the pieces and parts to the note card.

  15. I just said on the blog before yours that The Scoop was tied for one of my favorite new releases. Tough Guy is my other favorite. He's so fun and it's something totally different for men. I can't wait to get it so I can use it for this year's Fathers Day card. It will be much better than a card with ties on it! Hee Hee
