Avery Elle: Thankful

Good morning folks!  Just a quickie post today with a card using the new Avery Elle set Thankful!  This mini set is all about the oversized acorn!  

I decided to go with a more natural, organic look for this card and here's what I ended up with.  I used the large wreath stamp from the new Winter Wreath set as a background.  The wreath stamp is actually not that wide, I just used a mask to stamp a wider image.  For a little bit of definition, I lightly colored over the leaves and the acorn cap with a Copic.  Lastly, I used a banner stamp from the new set Build A Banner.  This is a good way to use a banner stamp when your sentiment is slightly larger than the banner:)

I'm so happy to be working with this set because this is definitely how I've been feeling lately!  Even with the day-to-day craziness in my life, I'm feeling very thankful for family, friends, my home, and even my job;)  Hope you all are feeling it too!

Thank you so, so much for stopping by!  Heather also has a project today, so be sure to go visit her blog!

Mahalo and Aloha,


  1. Love this! That acorn is beautifully done. Great card!

  2. Love how the wreath frames the acorn...sweet card!

  3. Great card! Love those sets.

  4. Thankful is a wonderful way to feel :) Love your card - and the perfect scatter of pearls & sequins! I must say I'm glad acorns aren't actually that big...I've been hit in the head a few times but I don't think I could shake it off if they were the size of my hand ;)

  5. I love how you made the 'Acorn' the star of the show on this card, JJ! I love how you placed the wreath behind it, and how you used the banner with this pretty sentiment, too! Such a beautiful autumn card!!!


I'd love to hear from you! Aloha!
