Avery Elle's First Challenge = Fun!


  I had heard so many great things about Avery Elle and was lucky enough to win a gift certificate to the store, so a few weeks ago I put in my first Avery Elle order! I decided to wait until after Christmas was over before putting any "Valentine" themed cards on my blog, hey, one holiday at a time, right? So, this weekend I finally had some time to play and created a couple of cards using my new stamps and I wanted to play along with the first Avery Elle Challenge!

   My first card uses two AA stamp sets "All Occasions Tags". and "Lots of Love". I stamped the tag ends using Pink Lemonade Fresh Ink. The patterned hearts were stamped using Stampin Up, and A Muse Studio ink. The embossing folder is from Lifestyle Crafts, and I added some fun chevron ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel.  I finished off the card with a touch of zig zag stitching to give it a little extra something. I seriously love this card!


I kept my second card a little more CAS, and decided to use non-traditional colors. I stamped four of the hearts using Stampin Up's Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake. The solid black sentiment was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I added more black stitching, and attached my card front to my SU wood grain embossed card base.  I hope you like both of my cards featuring two very different card styles. Thank you for visiting my blog today!
