Avere Elle February/March Release Blog Hop!! =)

Pin It

I'm here today to share a card I made for the New Release Avery Elle Blog Hop!!
I've used the New WE GO TOGETHER Stamp Set and the PINKED ELLE-MENTS Dies!!
I just LOVE this FUN New Set!!
    Avery ELLE-ments Dies, Pinked Elle-ments
I thought LONG and HARD about my design for today because CAS is really hard for me!! I'm REALLY HAPPY with the way my card turned out and I LOVE the Design I came up with!! Check it out to see what you think!!??  =)

Well do you like it as much as I do!!??
I thought you would!! =) I started by stamping all of my images twice onto some WPlus9 Oatmeal Cardstock using Versa-Fine Black Ink!! I then colored my images using Faber-Castell Aquarelle Water Color Pencils!! I then fussy cut all of the images out and used a Distress Marker in black soot to color the edges for a seamless look!! I added foam tape between each of the images for a 3-D look!! I die cut the large Pinked Rectangle from some wood patterned paper to represent a wooden sign and then added an oatmeal cardstock panel for my sign front!! I also die cut one of the smaller Pinked dies and ran the other edge through to have both edges Pinked!! I then used my stamps to Create my Own Sentiment using Post-it tape to mask certain letters from the sentiment stamps to say "You're The" for my sentiment!! I wanted to create a FUN Picture Sign with the meaning being:
You're The
Olives to my Martini
Milk to my Cookies
Coffee to my Roll
I had originally stamped out all of the words along with the images, which was still cute; but in the end the images alone was more the look and feel I was going for!! So I hope you ENJOYED my card and that you'll be FILLED with AMAZING INSPIRATION after the Blog Hop today!!
