{Avocado Arts} Hi



Today, the Avocado Arts Pit Crew is sharing projects using the September release, Grateful Season. For this card, I used several stamps from this set including the diamond border, filler square, two circles and a sentiment.  I combined these stamps with a bunch of other borders and a tiny heart from three other sets including Sweet Treat Sweetie, Sew Nice and Thoughts and Smiles!


I picked four colours to work with and started stamping the borders from the bottom up. When that was done, I randomly sprinkled the filler square inside the diamond borders. Then I stamped the circles, punched them out, stamped a sentiment on one and randomly adhered them over the borders. Something seemed missing so I added two little hearts from Sweet Treat Sweetie and added glossy accents to them.


Hooray for fall, my favourite season! Sweater weather is upon us and I'm loving it. If you'd like to purchase Grateful Season, just click on the graphic above. 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:


It's my birthday weekend and I'm turning a big __. I think I would rather not think about it. LOL! I hope to celebrate with loads of crafty time and some shopping. ;)
