a still life

One of the joys of crafting is taking something and putting it together in a fun and unique way. The joy of making it your own.

I especially love doing this with stamp sets. Seeing how they can be put together in a myriad of different ways. I love the Avocado Arts stamp sets for this as they all combine so well. Today I’m sharing a card that features the latest stamp set, Stamps and Smiles with a little sneak peek at the new upcoming June stamp set.

If you’re familiar with this set can you find the peek? Well, I’ll make it easy for you and just tell you. I’ve made a vase out of the sweet little fishbowl from the upcoming set and the sentiment on the tag is also from June’s set. I can’t wait till I can show you the other designs I’ve created with it as it’s a wonderful new set.

I’ve always loved still life paintings and did some paper piecing to put this little window scene together. Adding layers of stamping and embellishments helps give it dimension.

Being the 15th of the month, it’s the day when the ENTIRE Pit Crew posts sneak peeks so please join us for lots of great stamping inspiration and more views at the upcoming set…


Happy stamping!
