November Release Week - Lovely Letters

November 2, 2012

Welcome back to Day 2 of Avery Elle's November 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 that will be available for purchase in our store, www.averyelle.com, on November 5th.  Don't forget to check the bottom of this post for our latest giveaway to celebrate the festivities.

Today we are featuring a new 4" x 6" clear photopolymer stamp set called Lovely Letters that will retail for $15.  I absolutely love this alphabet font set. The stamp bases of the Lovely Letters set are designed so that they can be used to line up the individual stamps with one another. If they are stamped individually, they can be linked together to form a "seamless" word with no space between the letters.  If you have ever found yourself looking for that perfect sentiment in a beautiful font only to come up short, then this set is for you!!

The capital letter images measure on average:  3/8" x 3/8"; the lowercase letter images measure on average:  1/8" x 1/4"

Have you noticed that there are two different lowercase "y"s and "k"s in this set?  If you end a word with one of these letters you can add a small flourish...Don't you love small details like this?!?




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

My first project is this cute gift card holder for my daughter's teacher.  I created a small holder out of Crate Paper patterned paper and tied Celery grosgrain ribbon to make it look like a small and festive package.  I used the Lovely Letter stamp set to stamp out her teacher's name and ended it with the lowercase y with a flourish.  You can see here how the letters can be stamped to make seamless words and names.  This would be perfect for personalized stationary, gifts, place cards, etc. 


  This second card was made using our Lovely Letters clear photopolymer stamp set, the heart from our Framed Fonts stamp set, Avery Elle Cherry heavy card stock, Avery Elle Fog heavy card stock and Fog grosgrain ribbon.  The "&" is from a new set to be revealed later this week.  I loved being able to create my own perfect sentiment on this card. 



Last but not least is a cute and simple holiday favor bag for my niece.  I stamped her name and the small holly image onto the corresponding free cut file from our new Warm Wishes clear stamp set.  I also used our Cherry grosgrain ribbon, Lemon Grass heavy card stock and Ultra Smooth Pure White card stock.  Have you ever completed a card or gift and then come to the moment when you have to hand write something onto it?  I am not always a fan of my handwriting ability so I usually hold my breath and hope for the best.  Now that I have this set, stamping her name in a "lovely" font is the perfect solution! I cannot tell you how happy it makes me that the letters in this set connect with one another.

I do suppose one must have a steady hand with this set - but that the letters "connect" like script is a wonderful idea.
