Sweet Showers

Spring brings rainy days and showers. Umbrellas make darling stamped images for spring but how about flipping them over and using them for a baby shower design instead?

Today’s design features the latest Avocado Arts stamp set, Wishes and Kind Thoughts. Today I’ve used the sweet umbrella as the focal image and paper pieced it together for some color and dimension. The sentiment banner is created with their Avocado Type stamp set which is perfect for creating any sentiment you wish.

Here’s a peek at the detail…

To paper piece this design, I stamped it once onto the white cardstock and then three more times. Twice on the yellow patterned paper and then once onto some kraft cardstock to create the handle. By attaching the dimensional layer last and just adhering it along the bottom edge, I was able to fill it with tiny flowers for a sweet look. Each of the stamped dots was colored in with a yellow dye marker and then accented with tiny dabs of Glossy Accents.

Some of the Avocado Arts Design Team have a little inspiration to share with you today. These girls never fail to inspire me so take a peek…


I’ll be back later on today with the winner of the latest Stamp It 3 Ways issue. Stay tuned!

Happy Monday!
