"Just Like Dad" cards with Avocado Arts {post3}


Hello, friends:}

Today the Avocado Arts Pit Crew have created some amazing projects to share with you! We all used the AA June stamp set, Let's Catch UpBe sure to stop by the AA blog for more information and LOTS more inspiration!

This month's stamp set is PERFECT for Father's Day! I used the AA mustache and bow tie, along with the sentiment to make this fun mini card. I LOOOOOOVE how the bow tie looks! The papers are from Simple Stories Summer Fresh paper pad {available HERE from the RC}. 

This was a simple card to make! Easy to reproduce!  

Instructions: 
1. Create card base from cardstock and patterned paper.
2. Die cut postage stamp and adhere to card using foam dots.
3. Stamp images and cut out.
4. Adhere images to postage stamp.
5. Stamp sentiment.
6. Distress edges with ink blending tool.
For my next project, I needed a CAS Father's Day card to match my "Just Like Dad" gift bag {which was published in the Paper Crafts May/June issue}. I paired some Bazzill peanut cluster cardstock {available HERE from the RC} with some chipboard alphas, along with my Avocado Arts June argyle stamp. I inked up the alphas with a light green ink and then stamped the AA argyle stamp on top with a darker green ink. LOVE how it turned out. 
If you look closely, you can see the argyle stamping on the chipboard! LOVE:)
I added glossy accents to the mustache to make it pop--it looks a bit shiny in this pic! LOL!

That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by the AA blog for more details and inspiration. And don't forget to check out my other teammates' blogs! You are going to love what they share today!!!!
