Avocado Sprouts card by my Daughters

Good morning! I'm up on the Avocado Arts blog this morning - and today I'm excited to share a couple of cards that my two daughters made with the first stamp set of the new Avocado Sprouts line, Cheer (and if you head over to the Avocado Arts blog and leave them some love, you have a chance to win this set for yourself!):

They were both so excited when they saw the set, and I love how they both made their own special creations with them!

First up - my youngest daughter, Amy's card. Here is what she had to say about these fun stamps:

"I liked that the stamp set was fun to cheer someone on. I also loved that I could color them however I wanted, since I love to color!"

Amy used my Copic markers to color her image, and Gold Spica glitter pen to add some fun accents. She used a couple of Tim Holtz distress markers to color the grass and the sky. Her pattern paper is from Echo Park, and she used foam adhesive for the front panel to add a bit of dimension.

Next is the card my oldest daughter, Katie, made with the set. Here is what she had to say about it:

"This stamp set is really something a kid would love to use. I loved the 'cheer' stamp because it really cheered me on to make this card. I also liked that I got to color in the girl and make her how I wanted her!"

Katie also used my Copic markers to color her girl, die cut a frame around it with an Avery Elle die, and used distress ink on the edges to blend it in a little better with her pattern paper from MME. She added some washi tape along the bottom, and a separate panel for her sentiment, with a few enamel dots as a finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you will take some time to break out your craft supplies and play with your kids too!
