Release Week Day 2 - Introducing Picture It

August 11, 2012

 Welcome back to Day 2 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.  Over the next 4 days we will be featuring projects made by our AMAZING design team and showcasing our latest release.  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, on August 14th.  Don't forget to check the bottom of this post for our latest giveaway to celebrate the festivities.  Let's get started.

Today we are featuring a new 4" x 6" clear photopolymer stamp set called Picture It that will retail for $15.  The Frame image measures:  2 3/8" x 2 3/4"; The camera measures:  1 3/8" x 1 1/4"; The Label image measures: 1/2" x 2"; Say Cheese Speech Bubble measures:  1 1/2" x 1"; The Washi Tape images measure: 7/8" x 3/8"


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

Kasia Curry - Kasia's posts for this release will be slightly delayed due to factors out of her control, but you will definitely want to check out her blog to see her amazing projects using stamps from our June release. 

I love the versatility of Picture It and think that it would be great not only for cards, but for Project Life albums (the frame will fit perfectly in those smaller 3 x 4 pockets) and scrapbook pages as well.  I have wanted a speech bubble set for a while so this was the prefect opportunity to create one along with my current love of the polaroid trend.  I think that the addition of the washi tapes, label, and Comment / Like sentiment makes this a fun set!

Have I mentioned that we will be offering free .svg and .pdf cut files for our entire collection of image stamp sets here at Avery Elle? Yes, I did say free.  If you have an electronic cutting machine, you will now have the ability to cut shapes for our stamp sets.  How awesome is that?  In this card below I used the Picture It cut file to cut the frame and washi tape images out of our Ultra Smooth Pure White card stock.  I simply stamped the frame, label and You make me smile sentiment onto it.  Easy!  Inside the frame I created a small shaker using glitter and some small foam hearts.  To give the background a subtle detail, I stamped one of our Ikat background strips onto Sea Glass card stock using Versamark ink. 


In the card below you can see how I created a totally different look with the same set.  I flipped the Say Cheese and Oh Snap speech bubbles over and used their back smooth side to stamp the blue and yellow bubble onto Ultra Smooth Pure White card stock.  I love bonus stamps like this!  I then stamped the Happy Birthday bubble onto the corresponding die cut. 


This last card features the small camera image that comes with the set.  I used the coordinating cut files along with the stamps to create this fun card.  The card base and ribbon are a new color, Papaya, being release this month.  I love that we will have both a deeper and lighter orange in the store next week.


Don't forget that in honor of our Release Week, we are giving away a $25 gift certificate to our store.
