Avery Elle Blog Hop

This is my second post for the day.  Scroll down to see my Sweet Stamp Shop creations....


I am thrilled to be joining the team over at Avery Elle today.  Jamie has some fun new sets coming up and I have a little sneak peak of one of the sets.  First off, here is my card..

IMG_9472

I used one of the new background images to create this fun, modern background.  I stamped it in white ink on a gray base and then added in a sentiment from Framed Fonts on black card stock.  I used the AE cut files to create the frame and the mat for my sentiment.  

Keep hopping and check out these girls and their new Avery Elle creations....

Laurie Willison-that's me!
