Avery Elle Birthday Month: Favorite Avery Elle Project & Giveaway

June's not over and we're still celebrating Avery Elle's first birthday!  This week, the DT is posting projects using their favorite Avery Elle stamps:)  With all the graphic stamps that Avery Elle offers, you'll probably be surprised at what I chose as my favorite!  It's Petals and Stems!  And last month, the matching dies were available, so my favorite got even better!  

This is my go-to flower set for sure!  To me, it's perfect because it's just the right balance between modern and traditional.   As you can see, I went the modern route:)


For this card, I created a bold striped background with gold and white card stock strips.  I stamped and die cut the largest flower in the set and added some highlights with a Copic marker.  The tag is from the new set Simply Tags: Everyday (stamps and dies).  I added a little more gold to the tag with tiny accent triangles:)

Now to the giveaway!  All week long you can center to win this custom Avery Elle 4 x 6" address stamp set with your personal information on it. *Please note that it will take approx. 4 weeks from the time the winner contacts us to the time the winner will be shipped the set.*
