Avery Elle AEI♥U Challenge #9 - DIY Stamped Designer Paper

Hola sweet friends!!

Popping in quickly from my Gramma duties to share the next AEI♥U Challenge, and it’s a super fun one!!  It’s one of my favorite techniques, so I can’t wait for you all to share what you come up with for this one!

Challenge 9

Here’s what I came up with for this challenge:

Challenge 9 - Birthday Wishes

Do It Yourself Designer Paper – Woot!!  I saw this as the perfect opportunity to pull out some of the latest Avery Elle stamps and dies!!  Polka dots just make me happy – I’m pretty sure they make EVERYONE happy, right?!  LOL  That fun polka dot image came from the Many Thanks stamp set – there are several small filler images in that set that will make amazing backgrounds!!  I just used one of them, with several different colors of ink – Cherry, Aquamarine, Fizz, Lemon Grass and Raspberry – alternating the colors to give a fun variety.  I used some masking tape to keep my lines relatively straight.  Once I had stamped all of the polka dots, I used the new Dotted Elle-Ments big die to cut out a 4” x 5.25” panel.  I so love the dotted detail of those dies!!  The Fizz banner was created with another of the Dotted Elle-Ments dies.  The balloon was die cut from one of the new Balloons dies, and the sentiment is from Sending You!!  Pretty cute, huh?!  I’ve listed all of the products I used below!

Okay, so we’d love to have you play along with us!  You can find all of the details, as well as some beautiful and inspirational projects created by my teammates over at the AEI♥U Challenge Blog.  You can link up your project there – but you only have until June 21, so don’t delay!!

That’s it for me today, friends.  I’d love for you to drop by again tomorrow as I have some AMAZING news to share – I’m pretty much busting at the seams with this happy, happy news!!  So, please come back to find out what it is!!  In the meantime, thanks so much for stopping by today – I am ever so grateful for the time that you take to visit me here!  We’re off to the Children’s Museum with the kiddos today!  I hope you have some super fun plans for your weekend planned!!
