AEI♥U Challenge...take 5

Posted by Barbara Philips at 6:45 PM 3 comments
OK, now I am really grasping at straws for ideas for Avery Elle's challenge.  I thought of something else, but I am not sure I like it.

What do you think?  My daughter says that it is "butt ugly."  It is....different.  You try making a card with only one stamp!  I have enjoyed this challenge, it was a good exercise for my brain!

AEI♥U Challenge....one more!

Ok, so I cannot stop making cards for Avery Elle's challenge.  Here is one more...

Super simple and elegant.  Love the quick use of washi tape!

I wanted to use up the background paper that I created with the digital stamp, so here is another card for the Avery Elle challenge!

I cut the remaining background paper into strips and adhered them to a black card base.  I printed 2 copies of the digital sentiment and cut out the center of one.  I adhered this frame to the solid sentiment creating a popped-up frame.

Again, I added a few sparkly rhinestones as a finishing touch.

Here is another card I created for the Avery Elle Challenge...


For this card I added dots with a Copic marker to the background paper that I created with the digital stamp.  I also used Copic markers to color in the sentiment.

I love Avery Elle stamps. I just discovered this company so I do not yet own any of their sets. I want to participate in the Avery Elle challenge for a chance to be a guest designer! 

The AEI♥U challenge for the month is to create a project that sums up your personal paper crafting style. The requirement for the challenge is to use Avery Elle stamps or use this free digital stamp

This certainly was a challenge to create something with just one stamp!



I love washi tape!  It is so quick and easy to add color and detail to any project.  I created the background paper with the digital stamp. Hand cut the image and mounted it on black paper and cut it again. I added a few sparkly black rhinestones as a finishing touch.

I know I have not posted anything in a long time.  I have no excuse except to say that I have been busy.  Anyway, I will share a few cards (of course I copied the layout)....
