Introducing... Background Builders: Chevrons


I'm back today to share the next June Release product introduction... Background Builders: Chevrons. Chevrons have been trending for a while and I've wanted a chevron set for some time now so that's how this set came about! 

I've a couple of projects to share using this new set...

A bright & cheery AWESOME card :) I've used 3 chevron stamps on this  card to create the multicoloured stamped background. 

I started out by masking off a section on the white mat layer using some low tack masking tape, where I wanted the sentiment to be. I then inked and stamped each of the individual chevron strips to create the background, it was super easy and quick and I love how it turned out :) I then used a fine liner to draw in the lines, stamped the sentiment and highlighted the star with a yellow Copic marker.

I've one more card to share today using Background Builders: Chevrons that could easily be mass-produced...

For this card I simply stamped a white panel of CS with another of the chevron stamps and then die cut with a circle die before adhering to the base card using foam adhesive. The sentiment is from Label Love: Birthday and I added a few purple rhinestones to add a little something.

Taheerah has a card to share using today's set too, so be sure to stop on by and give her some love :)

Don't forget there are mystery prizes up for grabs that will be announced HERE on the blog on June 11th. There are lots of ways to win, by commenting on the blog or a DT member blog during the countdown to release, FacebookTwitter and Pinterest

I'll be back tomorrow with the next product introduction which happens to be my FAVE of all the products being released this month! Until then thank you for stopping by & have a lovely day.
