happy heart day peek from Avocado Arts

happy valentines day

Today it’s a look at Sweet Treat Sweetie, the next release from Avocado Arts! Hard to believe its time to think about the next holiday! ;)

happy valentines day CU button

The background of this card was stamped several times in different colors of ink. (The stamp image itself has three rows of x’s and o’s.) To make it easy, I used a Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk Queue set of inks. They are five inks, stacked up, that all coordinate.

The extra touch to this card is the stamped button. Yep, I cannot get enough of those wood buttons. Perfect for making your own embellishments! This button was sanded first, then using Palette ink, I stamped the heart image. Tie some twine through the button and you are done. Lots of possibilities with that idea.

Hope you are enjoying your holidays! thanks for stopping by!

Be sure and stop by the rest of the team to be inspired!

The red and purple look so good together on this card!! Purple and I have issues sometimes lol. I think the gradient of colors is really cool, and a card just isn't a card without a button and twine {{hugs}} great project girl!!
