Friendship is Made With Love

Today, the following members of the Avocado Arts Pit Crew are inspiring you with more projects made with the April stamp set, Sew Nice:

---> Emily Leiphart <---

I stamped the large bloom from Sew Nice three times on sticky-back canvas and cut out all the layers. I applied multi-medium gloss to all the layers, lifted the petals and allowed them to dry before assembling the flower. I used the whimsical stitches as a stem, added a flag from Avocado Type and stamped a sentiment from Sew Nice. Chomping a corner and adding a rhinestone was all that was needed to finish this card!

I love the friendship theme of this set. The fun flower, buttons, spool, clipboard and stitches provides so many design possibilities! You can grab this set for yourself HERE.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Easter weekend! It's a long weekend here in Canada. My sister and her family are here from the U.S. so we are spending time with her and our parents.
