Sending Some Love Your Way . . . with Parachutes! Card

This card idea had been floating around in my head, and then floating around as a sketch on a post-it note, and finally I sat down and stamped it out!

Avocado Arts Stamped Card using "Zip n By to Say Hi" "Hello Friend" "Perfectly Perfect Day"
I had fun playing with some Avocado Arts stamp sets that I purchased at a recent scrapbooking convention and I combined stamps from different sets.  Also, the stamps are reversible, so I stamped the solid green parachutes first and then flipped the stamp over and stamped the parachute outlines.  (I also flipped the cloud stamp to get solid and outlined clouds, but I stamped those last).

Also, to help with the alignment of the hearts and strings, I made a template, stamped the hearts, removed the template and stamped the connecting strings last.  I also used some post-it note masks when stamping the middle, shortest string and with the lowest parachute when stamping the nearby cloud.

And on the theme of parachutes – did anyone else watch the video of the recent record-breaking skydive? Crazy!

But back to cards, these finished ones will go in my pile for OWH🙂

Avocado Arts - combining stamp sets example


The “parachute” is a highway sign turned upside down from Avocado Arts’ “Zip n By to Say Hi” stamp set.

The dotted “string”  is a spider’s silk from Avocado Arts’ “Thankful for You” stamp set.

The heart and “sending some love your way” sentiment are from Avocado Arts’ “Hello Friend” stamp set.

The cloud is from Avocado Arts’ “August 2012: Perfectly Perfect Day” stamp set.
