Color Challenges with Avery Elle

I ordered my second Avery Elle set (To the Point) the other day.  It arrived at my house the next day.  Talk about fast shipping.  I decided to play around with some color challenges.

This week's ColourQ color scheme screamed Halloween, but I didn't feel like making any Halloween cards.  I don't know why.  So I decided to see if I could use the colors in a different way.  I only have two Avery Elle sets, but they work so perfectly well together.  This card uses Framed Fonts and To the Point


Once I got going, I had some more ideas about how to play with these two sets.  I used this week's Color Throwdown #213 to make two more cards.  For the first card, I used a Spellbinders circle die to cut a space for the sentiment, and raised the front panel just a bit with dimensionals.

Thank You

This next card is basically a vertical orientation of my first card.


Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Avery Elle Framed Fonts and To the Point
Paper:  PTI White
Ink for Birthday:  Memento Black, Winter Wisteria, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest
Ink for Thank You and Congratulations:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Hibiscus Burst, Limeade Ice, Orange Zest

Thanks for Visiting
