AEI♥U Challenge #19–Inlaid Die Cuts!

Hello Again!!

We’re back with the next AEI♥U Challenge!

Challenge 19

That’s right, friends!  Inlaid die cutting is a super fun and unique way to use die cutting in a way that gives the appearance of depth and dimension, without the bulk – mail friendly die cutting!  LOL  NOTE:  You do NOT have to use Avery Elle dies in order to win – you DO, however, have to use an Avery Elle stamp in your entry!  The amazingly talented Jennifer McGuire shared a video on YouTUBE demonstrating this technique, for those of us that are “visual” learners.  You can find her video HERE.  And here’s what the challenge team has created for your inspiration!


We’re so excited to see what you all will come up with for this challenge!  Here are the rules and regulations:

1.  Avery Elle stamps or our free digital stamps must be used in each entry.  To use our digital stamp, right click on the image and save it to your favorite photo editing program. You may re-size it slightly if you wish.  Please note that our free digital stamps are copyrighted and are for personal use only.  Please credit Avery Elle when using them.

2.  You may enter as many times as you wish, but they must be posted to the InLinkz tool separately.

3.  Please enter a NEW, not previously posted, project that fits the challenge theme.  Your project must fit the theme to be eligible to win.

4.  You can link your project to Flickr, Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery if you don’t have a blog.

5.  If you have a blog, please include the challenge graphic in your post, with a live link to the Avery Elle Challenge Blog.

6.  Winners will NOT be chosen randomly.  We will be looking for entries that include great use of color, design & creativity.

7.  You have until 12:01 AM (Pacific Time) on Friday, December 26, 2014 to enter.  TWO WINNERS and three runners up will be announced on Wednesday, December 31, 2014 at 6:00 AM (Pacific Time) on the Avery Elle Challenge Blog.  THE TWO WINNERS WILL EACH BE AWARDED A $25 AVERY ELLE GIFT CERTIFICATE!!

Happy creating!!
