{Avocado Arts} Grateful For You



Today, the Avocado Arts Pit Crew is sharing projects using the September release, Grateful Season. I used the large pumpkin and one of the sentiments from this set for a quick and easy card.


The grass is from last month's release, Perfectly Perfect Day. I can't seem to stop using that grass stamp! It's really awesome. I recently bought a pack of sequins and wanted to use them so I layered it between some burlap string and a pearl to dress up the pumpkin. :)


If you'd like to purchase Grateful Season, just click on the graphics. Avocado Arts would love to see you using their stamps! Remember, there's a publication incentive, too. ;) Don't forget to check out the following posts for more inspiration using Grateful Season.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have an amazing weekend!

Hi Emily! You already know how much I love your creations and this is no exception! What a beautiful card... LOVE the clean and simple look, yet tasteful! LOVE how you mounted your scene on a black panel--gives it a window effect (: Your coloring skills on that pumpkin is SO awesome!!! I wish I could color like this and know where the shading goes and all... And I like how you tied that little bow and finished it with a rhinestone... Did you stamp the grass or did you create it yourself with color??

Ooh! This is a nice set Emily! And I love the idea with the sequins and pearllayering! I have a few small packets of sequins which I need to put to use! That pumpkin is wonderful! So funny to know that you are thinking of Autumn (and so was I a year ago), but now I am thinking of summer!
