Avery Elle Summer Release Blog Hop

Hi again!!

If you are here for my Lawn Fawn Summer release card, just scroll down or click here. Thanks!

Welcome to my hop on the Avery Elle Summer release Blog Hop!


This new release is full of amazing new products you are going to love! Today, I'm featuring a new mini stamp set with coordinating dies that is called Extraordinary. It has some cute narwhal images and sentiments for different occassions but I decided to create a birthday card. And because we're in need of those kind of cards for men/boys I decided to use an unisex color palette, just to have it on hand ;)

I colored the narwhal images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and the background with Distress Oxide inks. I started with a blend of Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Jeans and then I sprinkled ink of the three colors on top to create that cool watery look. 


The die I used on top is from the new release too. I love it to frame simple scenes and sentiments like this, this collection of new dies is one of my favorite products from this release!
