Avery Elle–Easter Blessings
GIVEAWAY ALERT: If you’re looking for my Online Card Classes Giveaway, you can find it HERE.
Happy Friday, friends!!
I continue to attempt to catch up on my life since returning from Kansas. I’m getting there, but still have a few things looming! Ha! But I wanted to pop in quickly to share a couple of projects that I created for one of the new Avery Elle stamp sets called Easter Blessings.
Have you all watched THIS video that Jennifer McGuire shared a while back? This foil transfer thing is really fascinating to me! I had a chance to play with it a bit in Kansas, so I wanted to see if I could try the same thing on this Easter Blessings image. I’m not as happy with how it turned out as I would have liked. But I think with practice it will get better. Jennifer talks about five different ways to add foil to your projects – I used the stamped image technique. And with this project I used the Rainbow transfer foil. I also used the Pinked Elle-Ments to cut out the image panels on this project and the next one, and I used a notecard from the Caribbean Collection.
Gold is such a hot trend these days, so I wanted to see how the gold would look. I like it, but again I feel like it could be a little less “rustic.” I’ll keep working on my technique and hopefully it’ll get better. But I think both of these projects would be super fun Easter cards, and a true departure from the usual pastels.
That’s it for me today, friends! I’ll be back in a little bit to announce the winner of the giveaway that I had going on for the Spring Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop!! I’m a bit late in announcing the winner . . . oops! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!!
