Avery Elle Fall Release Blog Hop

 

AEBlogHopBadge

 

Hello and welcome to the Avery Elle August Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from my chum Karolyn Loncon’s awesome blog but if you’re lost and want to go back to the start then head over to the Avery Elle Blog and start from there!

So ……. YAY!  The day is finally here when I get to share, not just an AMAZING new release from Avery Elle (my favourite yet) but also I get to premier my very first stamp set called Pick ‘n’ Mix that I actually designed MYSELF!!  Wait, WHAAAAAT!  I know – unbelievable!!

I can’t express how grateful I am to Jamie and Avery Elle for giving me this opportunity!  What started as a desperate need to find a gummy bear stamp (which I just couldn’t find anywhere) and a poke in the right direction from my sweet friend Heather Campbell I ended up taking the plunge into stamp designing!  Fast forward a few weeks and a few late nights learning the technicalities of Adobe Illustrator and I created my first set which grew from the first image of a little gummy bear to a whole candy shop!  I only had time to create a couple of cards before I left for our trip to Australia but this first card is pretty much what I had in my head from the very beginning.  Each of the bears is coloured with Copics and then coated in Glossy Accents (but you can’t really tell from the photo!).  I had so much fun designing this set and I really hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

    Great job with your first stamp design! Love the gummy bears and the licorice assortment. It’s nice to have some different candies to color and the licorice will be great for some cards for the older “kids”. :-)
