My name is Heather Pulvirenti, and I live in Columbia, MD with my husband Jason, and our 8 year old daughter Lindsay. I was born in England, and have spent most of my life in the US (in Maryland and Virginia), except for the four years we lived in Canberra, Australia (my mom was career Air Force). I am currently a SAHM, but since my daughter is off during the day at school, I try to keep busy by filling my days running my Etsy business and working on remodeling projects around the house.
Hi, everyone! Heather P. here with my first Avocado Arts Pit Crew post. I'm so excited to share with you what I've created with February's new set. :)
For my first project, I decided to create a tag, using the beautiful wedding cake as my main focal point. I started by printing the color background and sentiment with my computer, then cut out the tag shape. Next, I stamped the cake image onto gray card stock, and heat embossed it with white powder. I then stamped some roses with pink ink, trimmed them out, and adhered them to the cake. To finish up my tag, I added some silver metallic twine, embellished with clear gems and covered the roses with stickles.
For my next card, I focused on the Mr. & Mrs. sentiment, as well as the knot (love!). I created this card by first covering a card base with floral patterned paper, then layering the striped pattern on top of a turquoise piece of card stock. Next, I die cut the yellow heart, then heat embossed the sentiment and image with white embossing powder. To finish up my card, I assembled the pieces, and embellished with black enamel dots.
For my final card today, I started by heat embossing (haha, yes, I'm obsessed with this technique!) the adorable beetle car image onto yellow card stock, then trimming it out. Next, I used a few different distress inks as watercolors to create the colorful background. I then cut a panel of white card stock and wrapped it with twine before adhering it to the card front. To finish up my card, I stamped the sentiment in black ink, attached the car with pop dots, and embellished with aqua enamel dots.
That wraps it up for me today, have a great one!
