Avery Elle Spring 2016 Release Blog Hop!

 

Yay!

 

The day is finally here for the Avery Elle Spring 2016 Release!!  And I really think you all are going to love every single new product as much as I do!!  My project for the hop today features the Skating By Stamp Set and coordinating Elle-Ments.

Oh my cute, right?!!  Seriously, this Skating By Stamp Set is chock-o-block full of the most adorable images you’ll ever see!!  This little skater girl can do all kinds of fun stuff – the set is super versatile!!  Here’s how I created this project:

 

  1. Trim an A2 vertical top-folding card base from Solar White Card Stock.  Score at 5.5”, fold in half and perfect crease with a Teflon bone folder.
  2. Die cut an image panel from Sea Glass Card Stock using the Double Pierced Rectangle Elle-Ments.
  3. Die cut the clouds from the image panel using the Pierced Cloud Elle-Ments.  Trim a piece of vellum just slightly smaller than  the image panel and adhere it to the back of the image panel.  Place the Pierced Cloud Elle-Ments back into the negatives on the image panel, and emboss them into the vellum by running them through your manual die cutting machine with an embossing pad.
  4. Stamp the sentiment onto the image panel using New Moon Dye Ink (this stuff is AMAZEBALLS!)
  5. Stamp the skater girl and the balloons from the Skating By Stamp Set onto Solar White Card Stock using New Moon Dye Ink (this ink is COPIC FRIENDLY!) and die cut them using the coordinating Skating By Elle-Ments.  Color the skater girl with Copic Markers.
  6. Stamp the skater girl and balloons a second time onto some patterned paper (I used papers that I had in my stash) for paper piecing the skater girl’s dress, bow and the two balloons using New Moon Dye Ink.  Cut them out using detail scissors.
  7. Adhere the skater girl and the balloons to the image panel with foam squares.  Adhere the assembled image panel to the card base with foam squares.

 

Seriously, how could you not love that skater girl?!!  She’s just so stinkin’ cute!!  I’ve listed the products that I used below.
