Avocado Arts April Share

Good morning my friends!  Sorry for my lack of posting again this week, as this post goes live I am in NY to attend the funeral of my dear Uncle Tom.  His passing was unexpected and way too fast.  He was such a wonderful man and is already greatly missed by my whole family!

Anyway, if you follow the Avocado Arts blog or any of the Pit Crew you already know that we changed up the way we post.  Each Pit Crew member now has one day of the month dedicated to showcase the Avocado Arts Stamp of the Month.  My day is the 18th, so each 18th of the month I'll be posting my projects.  This month's set is Perfectly Planted - such a fun set, for gardening fans, or just fans of flowers!  Let's get to it!

This first one is 4.25" square and I used the gardening utensils and small flower to make a background pattern - love doing this!  Then I stamped and cut out the pot with the small fork (is that what it's called???) sticking into the dirt.  I found some washi tape that worked perfectly as an accent for the tag, stamping the sentiment on it using StazOn ink.

Next I wanted to show how easy it is to mix and match sets from Avocado Arts!  The cute little picket fence works perfectly with the tree image from Perfectly Perfect Day (the clouds are from this set also)!  I didn't even color it in, just left it white and it works!   Since I had my little basket of washi tape out I found this green stripe and used it as "grass" to ground my images.  The little flowers are made using sequins and rhinestones, aren't they adorable?!

Last, but not least, this card was pretty quick to whip up, just find a cute patterned paper to use as a background, then stamp the seed packet image and flowers and color them to match.  I added a bit of twine around the bunch of flowers and rhinestones to the flower centers.

I hope I've inspired you just a bit and given you some ideas on how to use this crazy cute set!  Be sure to check out the Avocado Arts blog to find out when the rest of the Pit Crew posts and have a wonderful weekend!
