Avery Elle: Easy Does It

Today is the final day of the Avery Elle Inspiration Week and I'm closing out this week with some quick and easy projects!  It is Friday after all;)  The first 2 cards I want to share were done with the Framed Fonts and Bright Days sets.  If you have 5 minutes, you got 2 cards!  Done and done.


You've already seen the Bright Days set this week, and here's a look at the entire Framed Fonts stamp set!  Don't you love that mixed font look?  


Need another easy project?  Let's go!  This time I used the Blossoms and Blooms stamps to make a set of gift enclosure cards.  I chose the 2 full flower stamps that kind of remind me of medallions.  I love that these stamps are not symmetrical.  Why does it matter?  If you use them to stamp a pattern, the asymmetrical design is very forgiving:)  My only tip is to make sure that the stamp is oriented the same direction when stamping your pattern.  


I also put together a little card holder for this set with a twine and button closure.  I admit the card holder is a bit more involved, but I put together a cutting template and a Silhouette cut file to make it easy for you:)

{Note: This holder will fit cards  4-1/2" wide and 5" tall or smaller}


And here's the entire Blossoms and Blooms stamp set!  Lots of possibilities with these flowers!


So that's it for me this week!  It's been lots of fun playing with these new stamp sets!  I really hope that you've found something that speaks to you!  As always, if you have any questions about the techniques or products I've used, please don't hesitate to email me!  Be sure to check out the other Avery Elle gals for more fun stuff!  


Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Mahalo and Aloha,
