Sneak Peek Day 2

April 30, 2013

Today I am happy to show previews of our new chevron dies designed by the faboulous JJ Bolton & a new stamp set that I illustrated called The Man.

The Man - 4" x 6" Clear Photopolymer Stamp Set & FREE matching cut files - Retails for $15

Our 4" x 6" The Man clear photopolymer stamp set is perfect for those fabulous fathers in your life.  The sentiments included in this set are a great staple for any stamper's collection.  Measurements: DAD sentiment:2 1/8" x 1 5/8" ; Bottle Image: 3/4" x 1 7/8" ; Happy Father's Day Banner : 2 7/8" x 1/4" 


 Chevron Bits Elle-ments Custom Steel Die - Retails for $7.50

Our Chevron Bits Elle-ments Custom Steel Dies are exclusive to Avery Elle and are designed by JJ Bolton.  This set coordinates with the chevron stamp from our To The Point clear stamp set & the Chevron Border Elle-ments dies.  Largest Chevron Die measures approx: 3/4" x 1 1/4" ; Smallest Chevron Die measures approx. : 5/8" x 5/8"


Chevron Border Elle-ments Custom Steel Die - Retails for $12

Our Chevron Border Elle-ments Custom Steel Dies are exclusive to Avery Elle and are designed by JJ Bolton.  This set coordinates with the chevrons in our To The Point clear stamp set & the Chevron Bits Elle-ments dies. These premium steel dies are proudly made in the USA. Die measures approx: 1 1/2" x 5 3/4"  


I just love that these two die sets coordinate with each other and with our To The Point photopolymer stamp set.  The chevrons from To The Point fit into the chevrons from the border die and one of the chevron dies in the Chevron Bits set.  The chevron from the Chevron Bits dies also fit into the negative space created by the Chevron Border set.  JJ thought of everything when she designed these sets.  Who doesn't like to get more options out of their crafty supplies?

 I created The Man because I have been looking for a Father's Day stamp set that included nice sentiments that conveyed what I felt about the men in my life but weren't overly sappy.  I have seen some very lovely sets out there, but none of them were the right fit for me.  This set can be be used for more than just Father's Day.  Add the "Dad" sentiment to any Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, etc sentiment that you already have in your stash for a custom greeting or use the "Thanks For Always Being There" sentiment on it's own.  I had so much fun creating the following card. I stamped the bottle image in Versafine Smokey Grey ink and stamped the filler image in Memento Dandelion ink.  I shaded a portion of that image with a Fantastix in Memento Canteloupe ink. Fun and festive!



I used the die from Chevron Bits and our To The Point stamp set to create the top pattern and selectively cut out and pop-up various chevrons.  Unfortunately it is a bit difficult to see the dimension in the photo.  Trust me, it is there and looks so cool.  I stamped the Thanks Dad sentiment and partially inked up the Thanks For Always Being There sentiment to complete the card.  Kraft on kraft is not a look that I do often, but it seems appropriate for a graphic Father's Day card.  This particular card reminds me a bit of Charlie Brown.  It is good to push myself out of my comfort zone right?!? 


JJ is showing a sneek peek of her Chevron dies on her blog today too. If you have a minute you must stop by to take a peek! Tomorrow we will be previewing the rest of our May release.  Hope to see you then!
