Bright Days

Hello..... Jenny here :0)

I'm here today with Kate for a joint post to showcase an 
Avery Elle stamp set called Bright Days which will be back in stock soon.

We thought it would be fun to see how we each would use the same stamp set!!

As you can see it's quite a versatile set with elements to build your own patterns
and Kate went with rays of sunshine in a gorgeous warm yellows and oranges......

I love how the rays and the circular frame draw your eye to the sentiment, 
just the warmth we need in this weather!!

OR..... the long thin triangles can be used in other ways too,
they became animal stripes for my card....

I used Distress Inks to colour the background and stamped the rays in black 
to mimic a tigers coat..... the sentiment in the set wasn't really going work with this card 
so I used lettering from another Avery Elle set called
Fun with Letters to spell out the words on vellum.

 Two different cards made from the same elements in the stamp set and 
I hope we've inspired you to think of lots more yourself  :0)

Thanks for looking
Jenny and Kate

Hi girls, what fantastic cards. Love them. Such a good idea to see two different 'takes' using the same stamps. S x

Love this two-takes-on-one-stamp-set. Both are beautiful whereby I love the creativity of Jenny's tiger interpretation!
