Avocado Arts + Something Special

        Hey there friends! Happy to he here sharing some fun from Avocado Arts' current set and a sneak preview from next month's set. One of Avocado Arts design goals is to create stamp designs that can be used with other sets. Coordinating size and style among the sets mean that you can make endless combinations with ease!
   Today's project is fun! I created a mini glassine gift envelope that can hold a special gift like jewelry or a gift card to give to a friend.


I love glassine bags because you see through the bag to the goodies inside, gift or card! Glassine bags can be used in a variety of stylish projects from vintage to clean and graphic.
You can stamp really nice images on glassine too! Just make sure to use a fast-drying ink like dye ink.

I stamped the dotted border with a stamp from next month's release. I then stamped and trimmed the adorable little tag from next month's set as well...you're going to love love love May's release. The "happy" circle is actually from this month's release, Sew Nice and I thought it would look great with the polka dot border image.

You can pull out the backing of the gift envelope and write a personal message to the recipient on it. The flower and leaf images are also from next month's set. 
One of the things that I love about Avocado Arts stamps is that you can use BOTH sides of the stamp. The flower filled with color shows this technique. 

It's super easy to make this flower. 
1. Turn your stamp upside down and
 stick it to a clear block (so the flat side is up).
2. Apply ink.
3. Stamp on cardstock. 
4. Clean stamp and reapply stamp to clear base so it's now right-side up!
5. Apply ink to stamp and stamp over previously stamped image!

Well, that's it for me today. Make sure to visit my fabulous fellow Pit Crew to see more sneaky peeks of next month's set!
