Avery Elle: October Release Day #2 ~ To The Point



Back for Day #2 of the Avery Elle October release!  Today I'm working with the new stamp set "To The Point"!  


For my first card, I embossed the multi-chevron stamp in white and blended all kinds of yummy colors over the design.  It kind of reminds me of a tropical sunset or a cocktail;)  Either way, lots of fun! 


I framed out the colorful design with the lovely gray Fog cardstock!  Can I say that I've been waiting for this color for like EVER.  Love it.  I really like the gray as a modern neutral alternative to white or kraft.  The sentiment is also from "To The Point" and fits great inside of a little matted window.  


For my second card, I did something I enjoy the most, free stamping:)  I knew that I would be overlaying the design with vellum, so I just stamped the chevron stamps in 3 loose lines in a variety of colors.  To keep my lines somewhat straight, I scored guidelines on the cardstock.  Completely unnoticeable under the vellum.  This kind of stamping just makes me happy!  


That's it for me for Day #2!  Click on over to see the other "To The Point" projects from Jamie, Heather, Kasia, and Chunyuan!
