{Avocado Arts} The Perfect Blend


Today, the Avocado Arts Pit Crew is sharing projects using the awesome January release, Perfect Blend. I drink both coffee and tea so I really love this set. It's so easy to create with even without the digital die cuts but I used them widely on this card. It just adds so much dimension to a clean and simple design!


I used the coordinating digital die cuts from Perfect Blend, cut out the pieces with my Silhouette Cameo and then stamped with various inks. I stitched woodgrain patterned paper on blue cardstock and then adhered it to a base of distressed aqua patterned paper. All of the die cuts were then adhered to the card with foam tape.


If you'd like to purchase Perfect Blend, just click on the graphics above. 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:

How did you do the linking for the products? Ive been trying to do it but cant. I'm still on hiatus now since I'm sick with the flu but that doesn't stop me from visiting my favorites bloggers. Cheers to you!

What a fun combination of colours and images! And yes, you _could_ cut all these out, I suppose, but why would you if you don't have to? (The polka dot cup would be MY size tea mug. :P)
