Avery Elle Stamp Highlight: Suzani

Hi guys!  Today is my first post from the new house, woohoo!  I'm just figuring out where to take pics and my internet is still not working correctly, so bear with me:)  Today I'm using the new Avery Elle set called Suzani!  This is what I would call a builder set because it allows you can mix and match all the pieces for a truly unique design (one of my favorite things to do).


The first step was free-stamping the pattern in bright colors.  The stamp designs are very forgiving, so I didn't have to do a bunch of measuring or using a stamp positioner:)  To soften up the look, I covered the front with vellum.  On top of the vellum, I stamped the sentiment with the "O" of "YOU" being the center of the Suzani pattern.  


Thank you so, so much for stopping by!  Heather also has a project today, so be sure to go visit her blog!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  3. Your use of vellum to soften your background is genius, JJ! I love how you paired this set with your sentiment, too...such a beautiful card!

    I'm so glad you're finally getting settled in your new home! Your photo turned out so nicely...I think you may have found the 'magic' spot to take pictures of your cards :-)
