Avocado Arts: Project Share (6-21)

Hi all!

It’s my turn to be the ambassador of sorts today to Avocado Arts and share a few projects with their Are We There Yet? stamp set (and a few other Avocado Arts sets)! Oh, the pressure. 😉

So let’s get started.

Meet #1.

A_613_hereforyou_teriI have a whole lot of love for the set’s camper trailer. There’s just something so cheery and fun about those little trailers!

I created the custom sentiment by mixing together a sentiment from the Are We There Yet? set with the word “you” from the Future’s So Bright set.

Meet #2.

A_613_Wishcases_teri

I’m hoping to see a few of my favorite crafty pals in the Fall so I thought this would be fun card to send to one of them.

The suitcase (the same one, just stamped three times) and the “Wish You Were Here!” words are from the Wish You Were Here stamp set.

The “Let’s Get Together Soon” part phrase (from the Zip N By set) is actually part of a larger sentiment stamp. I just put a piece of tape over the words I didn’t want to stamp and inked up my stamp like normal. Before stamping it on the paper, I whisked off the piece of tape. The result: I only stamped part of the words.

And, finally, meet #3.

A_613_HelloFriend_teri

I was feeling adventurous here and wanted to stamp on wood so that’s what I did. I found a piece of wood paper and then stamped the sign (also from Are We There Yet?) right on top.

The sentiment was created by using a combination of phrases from Are We There Yet? and Hello Friend!

So that’s all I have for today!

Be sure to check out the Avocado Arts blog. The Pit Crew has been sharing projects all month long with the Are We There Yet? stamp set. You can find links to everyone’s projects on the blog!

See you again soon.

All of these cards use their Future’s So Bright set. You can check it out here.

It’s definitely a fun, fun set.

And I was really in the mood for making a couple graduation cards while working these up so each has a “you did it” twist!  Excited to have a few graduation cards for some special peeps that don’t really look like the same old, same old graduation card.

Looking for more ideas for the Future’s So Bright set? Well, be sure to check out the Avocado Arts blog. The crew’s been sharing projects all month long with the set. You can find links to everyone there!

Alright, that’s all I have! Be back later, gators!

Hi all!

Another day. Another card. 🙂

Playing around today again with Avocado Arts’ Spring Medley set. Broke my bunny stamp using habit with this card and used one of the flowers from the set.

I also used Avocado Arts’ digital diecut files to cut the flower out!

I cut the flower out a couple times in pink, yellow and orange cardstocks, stamped on top and then used markers to add another layer of color to the middle of the flowers.

a_30_flowers1_teri

Finished each flower off with a button! Really simple this time, but it’s fun to just do that once-in-awhile.

By the way, I’m not the only one playing with the Spring Medley set today. So are:

Hi all!

Another day, another $10. Ha. Kidding! 😉

In all serious, just another card to share today. Played around again with Avocado Arts’ Spring Medley stamp set.

I can’t resist the set’s cute bunny stamps. They just plain make me smile!

This time, I also used their Spring Medley Digital Die-Cuts files to cut out the bunnies and the “day” word. Made this card that looks a “wee-bit on the side of complicated” come together super quick. Thought that was super nice!

a_15_peepday2_teri

To make the bunnies look a little different, I added pearl noses to some and twine bows to other. Kinda fun!

I cut the grass from strips of green cardstock with my trusty Martha Stewart fringe scissors. By the way, did you know you can find similar scissors online by just looking for paper shredding or shredder scissors?
I’m not the only one playing with Avocado Arts stamps today. This sweet girls are, too!

And be sure to swing on the Avocado Arts blog. They love to hear from good folks. It really does make their day!

Hello again, friends!

Playing around again today with the Spring Medley stamp set from Avocado Arts.

Ever since I laid my eyes on this set, I’ve been wanting to make a candy kabob with to use it with so I decided to make a little tag today to tie onto a kabob!

To give the bunny a little extra dimension, I used metallic rub-ons and a white pen to add a little color to her cheeks. The bow was made with twine. The tail is just a white pom pom from the craft store.

And for the kabob, I used good old, Peeps marshmellow candies that I found at the grocery store. I stuck three of them on a wood skewer, slid a clear bag on top and added some ribbon. (If you decide to try this at home, be sure to use gloves! Not just is it food safe, but the sugar on the Peeps goes everywhere!)

Kinda fun!

Hi all!

Another day. Another card.

Playing around today with Avocado Arts’ super cute Spring Medley set.

Couldn’t help myself but to stamp the little bunnies up, cut ’em out and then embellish them. I made the glasses on the left on with a little bit of white. Gave each a bow with twine and some buttons.

I’m not the only one playing with the Spring Medley set today. These sweet gals are, too!

A_FriendsForever_teri

Hi all!

Say hello to today’s card!

Playing again with stamps from Avocado Arts. Challenging myself, too, to use a few different stamping techniques, too.

The Friends Forever sentiment is from their Special Delivery set. It’s a wee bit hard to tell above, but I used it to make a DIY  patterned paper. I stamped it over and over on the blue cardstock with a slightly darker blue. I am a huge fan of all things text and ledger paper related so it was totally fun to make own text paper with it.

A_FriendsForever2_Teri

The circle is a piece of sticky canvas. I stamped sentiment and flowers (from Avocado Arts’ new set that comes out in March) right on top. I colored the flowers with good old colored pencils.

I’m not the only one playing with Avocado Arts stamps today. This sweet girls are, too!
