Aloha! Today is a special day here on the Avery Elle blog.  On the first Thursday of each month we will be featuring a previously released product of ours in a #TBT post.  Now we know that this isn't the first Thursday of the month but next Thursday will be our new release of 12 stamps and 22 dies!  We can't wait to share previews with you starting next Monday!  We are having a fun giveaway today so be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post.  This month we are featuring our Surf's Up Stamp Set.  Just check out the amazing projects!!

We love the inking and shadows that Caryn created in this first card!  It is so lovely!



Melania used our Dotted Borders Dies with our Surf's Up set to create sand dunes on this gorgeous card! I love the white wispy clouds.



We love the way Katie stacked the sentiments and surfboards to create a fun birthday card!


Heather created a fun retro look with this last card! I love all of the depth that she created on this single layer card!

It's giveaway time!  Comment on this blog post between now and Midnight EST on Sunday, May 31st, 2015 and tell us what your plans are for this summer. One lucky person will win a Surf's Up stamp set.

Kathleen Spaeth said...

What very pretty, I just Love the Backgrounds, Cards! We are headed to our Summer Home, from our Massachusetts Home, in Ocean City: New Jersey. We had a very terribly cold, and snowy, winter. Our Spring was so welcome, but lately our Temperatures have been Summer like. We could really use some rain, some Town's are already declaring Drought conditions. I bet Texas, and Oklahoma, would Love to send their Rain to us? Mother Nature is so powerful, defiant, and unpredictable! These Cards ellicit squeals, and memories, of warm beaches!

Denise Bryant said...

I love the cute cards. Summer plans are to chill out and craft.

Love these cards! Thanks for the TBT - it was great to see this set in use again. My uncle and aunt have a camper van just like this one, so I'm inspired to make cards for them with it ;)
For me, this summer is about being sure to enjoy life. We have a had a stressful few months, so I'm looking forward to making the most of our family time together - maybe out in our newly revamped garden, also getting away on holiday to Italy for a week ;)
Thanks for the chance to win, Rx

Shona Chambers said...

Just loving these cards, reminds me so much of the Summer sun. We are heading into Winter now in New Zealand, so this stamp set would let me dream a little about the sunshine. I especially love all the blending of colours in the backgrounds, so perfectly done. Thank you so much for the chance to win!

Linda Rubarski said...

My summer plans are to take my mom to the beach more this summer.

Marianne said...

I have just returned from a trip to Ireland (with friends) and the Netherlands (visiting my sister) so I won't be travelling anywhere this summer. But then, who needs to travel if you have relocated to a sunny Greek island in the Mediterranean? I plan to enjoy our garden, walking the dog, putting our new BBQ to good use and swimming in the sea.

Kamila R. said...

My summer plans are to visit my parents in Poland and maybe a trip to the UK!
