Avery Elle April/May Release Blog Hop




It is time for fun and inspiration with Avery Elle blog hop. There are eight stamp sets and five die cut sets. Today I have a few projects using the urber trendy Brushed clear stamp set.

For my first card, I stamped the longest brush stroke on card front in Avery Elle pigment ink Mint to be, Orchid and Delicata gold ink. The sentiment was stamped on vellum die cut. A few gold sequins are the perfect embellishement.



For me second card, I brushed Tombow dual tip marker on the longest stamp, misted it with mini mister then stamp it on card front. I used two shades of the same color for most stripes. 


Next up are three project life journaling cards I stamped with the stamp set. I started my project life this year and document the special events and occasions.  I would love to do it weekly, but it is just not realistic for me right now.




Here is the complete list of the blog hop. Your next stop is the fabulous Brenda Weaver.
