The Sky Is The Limit

Today, the Avocado Arts Pit Crew is sharing projects using the August release, Perfectly Perfect Day. I used quite a few stamps from this set including the cloud, hot air balloon, a sentiment and the grass. I did all my stamping on patterned paper. The clouds and hot air balloon are fussy cut and layered with foam tape.

I love all the possibilities this set offers! It is so great for many occasions and the stamps provide a ton of options for scene-building.

If you'd like to purchase Perfectly Perfect Day, just click on the graphics. Avocado Arts would love to see you using their stamps! Remember, there's a publication incentive, too. ;) Don't forget to check out the following posts for more inspiration using Bold Celebrations.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Stay cool in the summer heat!

You really are tempting me here Emily! I love how you used the stamps and this card looks so dreamy in a way, beautiful use of patterned papers! I have been looking at Avocado Arts for some time now and am one sixteenth of an inch away to pushing the ORDER button!

This is very cute!

Lindsey said...

I'm with Glenda: that must have been one tough sentiment to mask and double-colour. Unless you carefully inked with two colours? Beautiful card! Love all the patterned paper.
