Avery Elle June/July Highlight: Texture Tiles: Be Cool

Hi guys!  I'm back with another set from the June/July Avery Elle release:)  I'm so excited because not only is this a fun set, but it was designed by my friend and teamie Nina Yang from Waffleflower!  This set is called Texture Tiles: Be Cool and it comes with a ton of fun graphic elements.   


This is one of those sets that definitely plays well with others:)  I paired it up with a die from the new set Simply Tags (also designed by Nina) and a sentiment from another new stamp set called Oh Yeah.  


First, I used the mini tag die to reverse cut 3 little tags into a gray card stock panel.  Then I went to creating some fun backgrounds with the teeny triangle stamp from Texture Tiles: Be Cool.  The triangles are perfectly spaced so that if you stamp in one color, flip the stamp, and stamp the second color, you get this lovely colorful design!  I created 3 different color combos using this technique (teal/coral, yellow/gray, and navy/red).   The "hello" sentiment from Oh Yeah fits perfectly inside the mini tag frame:)  I added a little bit of baker's twine by punching a small hole into the gray panel and feeding the twine through.  That's it!  


Thank you so, so much for stopping by!  I hope you get the chance to check out Heather's blog today!   

Mahalo and Aloha,

  1. Clever, clever, and CLEVER! Just flipping those stamps gives a whole new look--who'd have thought of that but you JJ! Love this. Great colors too. Very cheerful. Wonderfully popped against the gray. Thanks for your t&p for my SIL too. She'll need lots of them in the coming days. Bev
