Good morning! I'm up on the Avocado Arts blog this morning to share a few cards with you using the new stamp set for August - LOVE the way this set gives a little nod to back to school, but a little less traditional!!!
The first thing that caught my eye in this set, was that fun "smartie" stamp set:
I created a watercolor wash for the background, then stamped and fussy cut out those candies - I just left them white and attached them to the front panel, then added a layer of Glossy Accents to make them look more like real candies! Added some American Crafts pattern paper, a pre-made bow, and some gold thread. The pinked edge die is from Avery Elle.
Next up, I actually raided my scrap bin to put this card together:
Stamped and fussy cut again, then heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of brown cardstock. Attached the sentiment panel and the pencils with foam adhesive.
And finally - I was coloring up this sweet little image, when all of a sudden it occurred to me that it would be fun to make an interactive card!
I used some distress ink to ground the image, then stamped, colored with Copics, and fussy cut out the image before attaching with only a brad - that way it totally rocks back and forth! Fun, right? Hippo down:
And hippo up:
Also added some Basic Grey pattern paper and some jute twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
