All About Love with Teri 
Hi again, Avocado Arts fans!
Teri here again, and I am thrilled to bring you three more projects with the new All About Love stamp set. 

What a fun stamp set this set is! From the jars to the hearts to the glue bottle to the typewriter, this set just plain makes me smile!

I guess if I had to pick a favorite stamp from the set, it would have to be the typewriter. I just love the fun feel of it.

To make this card, I stamped the typewriter with red ink on white cardstock and pink patterned paper and then did a little bit of fussy cutting and assembling. Look really close and you can see where part of the typewriter is pink.
I thought adding hearts over the typewriter (with sequins) was just a fun touch so that's what I did!

I also love the set's three jar stamps!

I used the large jar exclusively on this card. To make each jar look different, I decorated them with a stamped heart, sequins and epoxy dots. I also used a gray marker to add a little subtle of shading to each of the jars.  

I also love the set's glue bottle. It's just so cute!

I thought it would just look fun to have hearts coming out of the bottle so I stamped a bunch of hearts, fussy cut them and scattered them (and sequins) about my card here. 

Well, that's all I have for you today.

All About Love And So Much More With Pinky!

Hey there Avocado Arts friends and family!

It's just me Pinky today with some projects using the most amazing
stamp set of the new year! All About Love and I have to tell you this stamp 
set touches my heart so much. 
This stamp set carries puzzle pieces- the universal sign of Autism.
My son has Autism and when I saw the set I literally came to tears.

I made this Valentine's card just for him and I couldn't be happier!
It really is "All About Love".

This set is so versatile- you could really use it all the way across
the board from cards and scrapbook pages to mixed media masterpieces.

For my next card I stamp right on irridescent vellum adhering it to a button
to pop it up. I just adore the quote "Love comes in all shapes and sizes" 
paired with the different fonts. I bow to the mastermind. 
 These vintage jars are perfect stamped in a copper ink
for a more rustic look. 

And for the last card I went clean and simple, which I am on occasion 
known to do...and I just let the typewriter do the talking but instead 
of leaving it solid- I added a cute piece of paper coming right off the card. 
And inside I used a coordinating heart. 

I so LOVED this set- it swells my heart to see such amazing products
all in one place. I know I can always count on a great design month to month.

That's it for me today- 
Until next time- Keep on creating!

All About Love ~ it is!!!

Hi !!
Connie here with some crafty ideas using the new set from Avocado Arts
 called All About Love!!!  

 Our first "selfie" together~

I used the stamp set to make the embellishments for this page.  Love the 
 typewriter and the little hearts!!

This was fun to make.   I call it a  Pinwheel Memory Stick.  

The center cluster is made up of the canning jar and puzzle piece images.
  This would look really  fun stuck in a jar of candy for Valentine's Day.  

And my last project ~ a sweet card saying " I Love You"
Thanks for stopping by~

All About Love with Amy

Hello!  It's Amy with some


The newest release is super fun!

Check out the typewriter in action:

I went super clean & crisp because the typewriter is so fantastic.  Seriously, who wouldn't love a retro aqua one?!  I added a sweet little heart veneer and called it good.

Next up I used the glue bottle image:

I adhered some embroidery thread...another clean and crisp card.  I wanted the image to be the star of the show.

Here's my last card, definitely NOT clean & crisp:

The kids and I love to go junk shopping.  I picked up a Spice cookbook (circa 1961) in a (scary) thrift shop on the Washington coast.  I used a portion of the intro page, heat embossed the sentiment in black and went to town with some Gelatos.  

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
