Day 4 - Introducing Blooming Banner

August 13, 2012


Welcome back to Day 4 of Avery Elle's August Release Week.  If you have just stumbled upon this blog, you may want to go to this post here to start at the beginning of the festivities.   We are introducing the final stamp set in the release today and we will be featuring projects made by our AMAZING design team.  We have 4 new stamp sets and 4 new colors of heavy card stock and grosgrain ribbon that will be available for purchase in our store, www.averyelle.com, August 14th (tonight) at 12:00am EST.  Today is also the last day that you can enter our $25 store credit giveaway.  Scroll to the bottom of this post for all of the details.

**Store Stock Update: We have had some customers ask if our Framed Fonts stamp set will be back in stock for this release.  Yes, it will be available for purchase when the rest of the release goes live later this evening.
 Cut File Update:  We will be offering cut files for our stamp sets that have been previously released**

Today we are featuring a new 4" x 6" clear photopolymer stamp set called Blooming Banner that will retail for $15.  The Banner measures: 3 1/2" x 1 5/8"; Happy Birthday Measures: 1 1/4"x 1/2"; For You Measures: 1 1/4" x 1/4"; Thank You Measures: 1 1/4" x 7/8"; Best Wishes Measures: 1 1/4" x 3/4"



Be sure to check out what the following members of our design team have done with this fabulous set on their blogs below.

I love the ability to use multiple ink colors in my stamped images.  It creates an added depth that is so pretty to me.  That was my inspiration for our Blooming Banner stamp set.  I wanted to create a modern / graphic "flower" image that could be stamped quickly and easily yet look beautiful alone or with embellishments.

In this first card I stamped the main image twice in soft grey ink and stamped the details in aqua onto our Ultra Smooth Pure White Card Stock.  I left enough room in between the two images so that I could add a Fizz bow.  I used our Sea Glass Heavy Card Stock and new Fizz Heavy Card Stock for the color palette.


I stamped the same banner image in yellow ink to match our new Mimosa Heavy Card Stock.  I added the details in soft grey this time.  I love the shape that the negative space creates when stamping this image onto the corners of this smaller note card.  I can picture cards using all of the included sentiments in different colors.  Perfect for teacher card gift sets, etc.


This last card shows how the image can also stand on its' own.  I used our Sea Glass and Celery Heavy Card Stock for my color palette.  I do believe the looks that you can create with the set are endless.


We are also introducing a new card stock and grosgrain ribbon color called Daisy this month. Daisy is a very pretty soft yellow and fits in perfectly with our existing color line. 


Another new product this month is A2 envelopes that match perfectly with our Ultra Smooth Pure White Card Stock.   Our Pure White envelopes come in sets of 25 for $5.25 and will be available for purchase in our store on August 14th at 12am.
