Avery Elle Sneak Peek: Modern Leaves Stamps & Dies


Are you all ready for June?  The June release marks the one year birthday of Avery Elle and boy are fun things in store (pun intended, lol)!  (Can't believe it's been a year!)  Starting with this birthday celebration, Avery Elle will be offering releases every other month.  And don't worry!  The number of items released throughout the year will still be the same, but now you'll have more time to enjoy your new goodies between releases!  For the June/July release, Avery Elle is coming out with 8 new stamp sets, 5 new die sets, and 3 new card stock/ribbon colors!  Today, I'm happy to be giving you all a sneak peek of my new mini stamp set and coordinating nesting dies called Modern Leaves! 




Like the previous sets I've designed, I was going for something versatile that could be used for many different applications.  The basic concept for these stamps come from my background in sewing.  I have been sewing MUCH longer than I've been carding, so it is second nature for me to apply quilting and sewing techniques to paper!  The two sneak peek cards I've done today definitely have that "quilty" feel and are 2 versions of essentially the same card.  One in stamps and one in die cuts!  


For my first card, I stamped a modern graphic design using the cross-hatched leaf stamp.  Quick and super easy:)  The Modern Leaves stamp set includes 3 sentiments in a really bold handwritten-style font.  These sentiments definitely stand up to the bold leaf graphics.  I hope that you like them!  Now let's check out the die cut version:)


I don't know about you, but I still get a kick out of using my dies to cut fabric:)  I'm happy to say that the Modern Leaves dies cut felt like butter!!  (I also cut canvas but that experiment is for another day;)  This card not only feels "quilty" but even has a bit of stitching.  I can't wait to see how everyone uses these dies!  

Thanks for checking out the sneak peeks!  The new release will be available on Thursday, May 30th in the store and Jamie is showing sneak peeks of the other release items over  at the Avery Elle blog now!  Be sure to come back on Thursday to hop with the entire DT gang:)  We're so excited to celebrate!  
    Mahalo and Aloha,
