Avery Elle with UmWow Studio and May Arts Ribbon

All this week, the Avery Elle design team is playing with some ribbon from May Arts and fun products from UmWowStudio!    I put all that goodness together, and here's what I came up with...


When I saw the UmWow Heart Confetti mask , I knew it would go perfectly with Red and her little basket!  Using the stencil, it was so easy to make the heart background with a small dauber and some red Distress ink.  I have a bunch of stencils, but I really like how the UmWow ones are noticeably thicker than your average mask.  

To pop out over the stenciled background, I decided to die cut Red on a hill:)  To get her on the hill, I did a partial die cut using the coordinating Red die (you can see all of her is cut but her feet).  [I'm not going to get into partial die cutting here, but there's tons of tutorials out there if you search "partial die cutting"]  Then I used the arc die from my Custom Panels die set  to create each side of the hill.  Because the arc die is open ended, you can just line it up with the end of any cut to create something totally new!   


Here's a close up look at my little Red with the stenciled hearts behind her:)  I never get tired of coloring in these stamps with Copics!  On the top of the card and on her little die cut basket, I added my favorite twine, May Arts Burlap String.  This thin twine is the perfect detail for rustic and natural cards:)  


That's all for me today!  Be sure to check out the Avery Elle Blog all this week for projects using May Arts ribbon and UmWowStudio products!

Mahalo and Aloha,
