Avery Elle and Add a Little Dazzle Blog Hop!


It’s Add A Little Dazzle and Avery Elle week!  This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with some amazing metal sheets from Add A Little Dazzle.  These sheets work great with our Elle-ments dies!  After visiting here, be sure to check out the Add A Little Dazzle blog for even more inspiration!  Be sure to comment on our company and designer blogs throughout to week to be entered to win one of two prizes – a $30 Avery Elle Gift Certificate or a prize from Add A Little Dazzle!  Winners will be announced on Monday, October 6th.

The Add a Little Dazzle metal sheets are such a fun material to use – they add a totally different different dimension to your cards and the Avery Elle dies cut like a dream!  I used the black sheet to cut the spider’s web from the Boo Elle-ments collection and the letters from Avery’s Alphas.  The background panel was created using Avery Elle pigment inks in Sapphire and Sugar Plum – I used a direct to paper technique of dragging the ink pad across the panel several times to get the intensity I wanted.

I hope you can join us for the rest of the week – the rest of the design team have some amazing designs to share with you!

Thanks for stopping by.
