Avocado Arts Inspiration using the June and July kits!

Have you checked out

Here is some of the inspiration that is being shared by
our Avocado Arts Club Members, the Pit Crew and the Avocado Arts team!
An adorable card made by Savannah O'Gwynn...
I LOVE how she stitched the rain drops!
(the clouds, boots, and sun are from
the Avocado Arts June Stamp Set "Sunshine and Smiles"

and more inspiration...

Marcie Anderson created this adorable card using the flip tip she learned at the Avocado Arts booth at an expo in St. Paul, MN. 
She flipped and inked the back side of the flower and stem to create a shadow effect.  Then she flipped it back over and inked up the front sides of the stamps with black and stamped over the top of the solid color.  LOVE THAT TIP THAT LISA SHARED!   The flower, stem, grass, sentiment and sun from the Avocado Arts June Stamp Set "Sunshine and Smiles".

A little card I made using the June stamp set and the NEW JULY Stamp Set "Hello Friend" that is available to purchase on our website.
The clouds, butterfly, flowers and grass
are from the June Kit "Sunshine and Smiles".  The telephone polls and sentiment are from the NEW July Stamp Set "Hello Friend" (below).

how ADORABLE is this card...

Pit Crew member, Becky Oehlers, created this adorable card using
the sentiment from the June Stamp Set and the telephone
from the July Stamp Set.

A super easy tag/bookmark I made using the grass from the June stamp set and the sentiment and telephone polls are from the July stamp set.  I created a layered look for the grass by using two different shades of green and stamping it multiple times. 

Thinking outside of the box....I turned the telephone polls from the July stamp set into polls for a "clothesline" and used the curly line from the July set to create the "line".  Also from the July set, I added the heart onto one of the socks, and hung them both up with the clothespins. 
The sentiment is also from the July set. 

Now, are you ready for some MORE Avocado Arts Inspiration?

Holy Scrap-a-Mole It's Scrapbook Inspiration Day!

Ready for some scrapbook inspiration! Have you seen the new scrap-friendly sets we released. AvocadoType, Strike-a-Pose and Say It! Pennant Style? These sets are SO FUN to work with. The images are sized a bit bigger than our monthly sets and they are perfect for scrapbooking, cardmaking and all kinds of papercrafting.

Over the next few months, I will be sharing a mini-album project using these new sets. It will be a "project in progress" and I will sneak a few images in for the set releases in July and August. HOW FUN IS THAT? Have you ever searched and searched your stash for the perfect embellishment for your scrapbook pages? ACK! One of my favorite things about stamps is that you can customize your project to suit EXACTLY what you want.

Also along the way, I will share tips, tricks and techniques using the new sets. Let's get started! Mark your calendars for the 10th of the month, Scrapbook Inspiration Day! -Lisa :)
