Avery Elle August release final day


It is the last day of the release week.  Today I am sharing two cards using the new Blooming Banner stamp set.

The first card is a one-layer card.  The banner was stamped in Fresh ink Fuchsia.  The sentiment is from Sentimental Swirl set.


For the second card, I stamped the banner twice and cut both into halves. Four pieces were mounted on Fizz card base.  Fresh ink Ginger and new card stock color Fizz match perfectly.

Hello.  Today is the first day of the release week at Avery Elle.  This month, Avery Elle is releasing four new stamp set and four new card stock colors.  Today we are feature the fashionable new stamp set that I am really excited about - ikat.  Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye. You can click the link and learn more if you are interested. Here are some inspiration I found on pinterest.

For my first card today, I used the rainbow colors with one of the stamps.  The sentiment is from another set which we will showcase tomorrow.


For my second card, I stamped another ikat image in Fresh ink provincial grey and colored the center with Copic. The the panel was adhered to lemon grass card stock.

MIM #76: Double-time Bleach Stamping

After I saw the new MIM video by Nichol and I knew I have to try this technique.  But I spent too much time watching Olympics games and did not get to stamp until Saturday. 

I stamped the back of the stamp in bleach and then turned the stamp over and stamped in color.  The colors are from ColourQ #148. It also entered into CASE study: signature style challenge.


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend.  The tempature got to 90 for the first time in two years today.  It will be in mid-90's tomorrow. We are going to hit the outdoor poor again.
