{Avocado Arts} Your Friendship Warms My Heart


Today, the entire Avocado Arts Pit Crew has loads of inspiration to share with you! We've all made cards featuring the January release, Perfect Blend, with sneak peeks of the upcoming February release, Special Delivery. My sneak peeks are the two pilot birds. Aren't they the cutest? After I cut them out on my Silhouette Cameo with the digital die cuts, I was so in love with their whimsical lines that I decide not to colour them in and you know how much I love to colour with my Copics! Since their bellies have a cut-out, I decided to stamp the hearts from Perfect Blend inside to go along with the sentiment. Then I embellished them using glossy accents and the birds' eyes with black enamel accents. The stitched ground is a border stamp from Sew Nice. I better not let my son see this one or he might take some markers to it. LOL


Please visit these amazing blogs for more inspiration and sneak peeks:


Be sure to leave a comment here and on all of the design team blogs for your chance to win one of these four awesome mini stamp sets!!! Winners will be announced on the Avocado Arts Blog as well as their Facebook Page so be sure to check back to see if you are a lucky winner!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

These birds are adorable. Looks like you and your Cameo are getting along quite well :)

Nice change with the outline chicks. The sentiments are super too. Thanks

Ziggyeor said...

I like the outline of them too. So you cut the stamped images out? Or they come in digi too? I'll check out the avocado arts page but that's cool if you can resize or cut out your stamped images w/o hand cutting.

Emily, each of your cards is delightful. I'm loving both the tall flowers and hexagons. What a great idea to use a hexagon for a path. Thanks for sharing.
