Stuck on You with Teri

Hi there, Stamp-tastic Friends! 
I am stoked to be with a few more projects made with the super sweet Stuck on You stamp set from Avocado Arts!

Could this stamp set possibly be any cuter? Hmm... I think not! 

I was inspired to make a couple chalkboard-style cards with it. So I stamped the bike with white ink on black cardstock for this card.

To give the black panel more of  grungy chalkboard look, I simply used a cosmetic sponge to swipe on some extra white ink along the edges of the panel. I also used a white pen to draw a few lines so it would look like the bike's headlight was on.

I also made this card with the same chalkboard-look technique.

I wanted the pinwheels to look like they were really blowing in the wind so I bent the pole stamp! Fun! 

I also made a chalkboard-look free card with the set!

I just love the set's tape strips so I simply stamped a couple of them on cardstock and cut them out. So fun to mix them together with the "I'm stuck on you" sentiment!

Well, that's all I have got! Here's to a great day!

Stuck on You . . .with Julie

Hello friends!  It's my turn to give you a little tour of this month's fabulous set, Stuck On You!  When they first emailed us the jpg of the set I squealed, seriously!! Washi tape stamps, a pinwheel, bicycle, ice cream?? It was just too much to love!  You've seen amazing projects so far from the Pit Crew right?  Here are my contributions.

First, this bicycle stamp is so sweet!  I love that it's a great solid image stamp making it so versatile!  I simply stamped it on patterned paper with the sentiment - done!

How cute is that?! 

Next up, (sorry it didn't photograph very well), is a quick card with the fun washi tape stamps!  Now you can make it any color you like!  I used a piece of real wood paper and stained it a darker color to highlight the washi!  The sweet little flower stamp is great for background stamping!

Aren't the sentiments in this set wonderful?!  I love the mixture of fonts!

Did I mention pinwheels? I love them!  How cute that this sweet pinwheel can be paper pieced and used alone or in multiples!  I went pretty simple for the card, well except for fussy cutting the pinwheel but that was a labor of love! :)

I hope I was able to inspire you just a bit - you really must have Stuck on You!!  Have a wonderful day peeps!

Blown Away...Again!

Hi Avocado Arts friends! I am so happy to be sharing my projects with you today.
I just adore how versatile this "Stuck On You" stamp set is. 

It can easily transition from summer to fall and beyond with a change of the papers!
 My first card was a big hit with my little 4 year old helper who said 
"You can blow those they will move!" which was precious. 

Can't you see these wonderful stamps being used in all
sorts of artsy projects? I sure can!

My next card I wanted to utilize the Washi Tape feel and I do love me some Washi Tape!
So I stamped in bronze, copper, and gold on the same paper to add a pop. 

 And on this last card I inked the bike frame first in chrome, then added the tires.
I love how it gradually fades, I felt like going outside- I would have if it had not been 100!

Every time I saw "I LOVE THIS SET" and every time it is 
100% true- from the first stamp to the last I love them all!
I hope you enjoyed my projects today- I know I really loved creating them. 
Until next time- Keep on creating!!!!

Stuck On YOU with Connie~

Hi stampers~how about some pop-up cards using this months super, fabulous stamp set called Stuck On You!  You are going to love it!!

Look at all of those cute images and the detail, just want you need, for pop-up cards. 
For my first card I used the bicycle and built the card around that.   With a pop-up card it is what is on the inside that counts the most:):)

I used "enjoy the ride" for the sentiment.  It is on the inside and  the front of the card.
My second card~ I used the pin wheels, and made a banner from the bottom of the ice cream cone. I loved working with the washi tape image.  It looks so real~

 The sentiment used " you BLOW me away" ~
My third pop-up card used the ice cream cones. I stamped them on white cardstock and colored the cone with Copic markers.

The sentiment on this card says " Thanks for being so SWEET "~
Loved this set.  So many great details that are perfect for this.  Great job Avocado Arts!!! Another winner!!  Thanks for stopping by!! cm

Stuck on You with Ashley Marcu

Hi Everyone! I'm excited to share my projects with you this month! There are so many fun images in this set.

My first card features the pinwheel. I inked it up in three different colors and blended them as I worked my way up the card. This technique would be so much fun in any color scheme!

Next up is a card with the super cute bike! With back to school what a perfect sentiment to encourage a student or a teacher.

I saved my favorite card for last!  I LOVE the washi tape stamps in included in this set! They are so fun!!! I inked up the polka dot one for this card and paired it the perfect matching sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stuck on You with Amy


It's Amy T here with a couple projects using the September New Release

My FAV image from the set has to be that fun beach cruiser:

This image is a wonderful size, as you can see my card is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  I added the sentiment as a banner!

Who doesn't love ice cream?

These images make for a 'sweet' thank you card.

Okay, who wouldn't love a washi tree?

I inked up Bring on the Holiday Cheer and used the washi strips to decorate the tree.  I'm always a fan of pink & green for the holidays.  Everything is nestled onto a thin wood business card.

I love how the sets can easily mix & match!

So, whaddya think of  Stuck on You! ?
