Avery Elle July Inspiration Blog Hop


Welcome to Avery Elle's July Inspiration Blog Hop!
Today we're all featuring stamps from the latter part of last month's release.

I hope you've arrived here from JJ's blog. If not, start at Avery Elle and keep hopping
because a $25 gift certificate to Avery Elle is up for grabs to one random commenter!
Joining the hop today is Miriam Prantner, who won a recent AEI♥U challenge,
and Maska, our newest design team member!

First, here's my card featuring Papel Picado Banners.
Papel picado is a Mexican folk art of intricately cut paper which are
most often used as banners for a celebration.


I stamped each of the banner flags in coordinating Memento ink on
Avery Elle's heavy cardstock and cut them out with the Elle-ments banner dies.
The set comes with different sentiments but I went traditional. Olé!

And now here are the deets for the blog hop.
