Avery Elle spring release blog hop!

Hi there! Welcome to my first-ever blog hop as part of the Avery Elle team!

The spring release is so fantastic, and I am showing off the new Floral Frame set:

Avery Elle blog hop!

I created a card and tag set, just for mom. I like that this means I am ahead of the mother's day game!  My 10 year old daughter asked if she could have them to give to me, haha.

Avery Elle blog hop!

The pictures aren't the best, I think I was having a weird lighting day. But that frame! I stamped, die-cut and colored 2 floral garlands, and overlapped them a bit to form this circle-ish, square-ish frame. Whatever it is, I love it.  I used our Burst die to mount the frame to, and inside the aperture I stamped "to Mom" from another new set, called Best Ever

Avery Elle blog hop!

I used the same set to create the greeting on my tag (which is giant-sized, and new to AE,) as well as a floral garland.  Here, I rubbed blue ink in a circular motion to mimic the look of the card. I finished off both the tag and card with a bit of black ink splatter.

I hope you like it!  Hop along with us today:
