Hello There Darling...

Hey, hey!

That Wednesday snuck up quick on me this week!  Usually I would have a Stamp Out Chaos post for you today, but Katie and I decided to postpone it after both of us had such a crazy weekend.  Never fear, we will return very soon with a look at storing Embellishments.  So, stay tuned!

Because I can't just leave you hanging with no craftyness, I bring you a card for the latest Avery Elle Challenge.  This time around, it is a fun color combo!

As you know, i {heart} papers carries Avery Elle goodness and you can find it all here.  I had to play with one of the newest sets, Brushed, and incorporated that onto my card front by rotating the same stamp using different Hero Arts inks.  I then took the Hello die cut, and ran it through, cutting across the stamped images.

I layered my die cut with three more, and placed it back in the negative.  I brought out the stamp set that coordinates with the die, called Simply Said: Hello, and stamped on the front and inside of the card.  I then added some black enamel dots to finish it.

I also added a few small splats on the inside.  My goal is to send this to a dear friend, cross your fingers for me, cause I am terrible about sending out cards!  Thanks for stopping by!
