You Make Life Sweet

The Reveal
Hello, PMB friends, this is Michelle here today with a card that showcases the cute Avalon stamp stickers from Bazzill.

The Inspiration
I was looking at all the embellishments in this month's The Sweet Life kit  and realized that I didn't utilized the stickers on any of my projects thus far. It seems to be an integral part to the kit so I had to get crackin'.

I recreated the look of the stamps by making four panels using the cardstock and patterned papers. I also notched the corners with a regular hole punch. I added a sticker to the center to repeat the shape. 

In one of the panels I popped up two apples cut from the patterned paper. I added some Glossy Accents and Stickles to make them stand out. Underneath the apples, I stamped the matching sentiment. To accentuate the main word within the phrase, I colored in the closed loops with a pen. Since there were a lot of busy colors and patterns, I anchored the design with two thin strips that contained all the colors used. 

This was a quick and fun card to make and I felt better about not neglecting a major component of the kit. 

Be sure to come back next Thursday to see the new kit and all the inspiration from the DT. Thanks so much for stoppin' by today and I'll see you next week for the new release blog hop + giveaways!
