Nuts About You with Amy Tsuruta

Howdy!  It's Amy T here with cards I designed using October's

I know, right?  Super CUTE set!  I especially love it because Fall Inspired projects are my FAV!

I started with an ultra CAS design:

I can't begin to tell you how CRISPLY Avocado Arts images stamp.  Check out those leaves...I used Fresh Ink Mango & Red Currant on the leaves.  The Happy Fall sentiment is Memento Rich Cocoa.

My card is a tall &'s been trimmed down to 3 inches wide by 5.5 inches tall.  It's one of my favorite card sizes.

I topped off my card with Timeless Twine's Lemonade Yellow.

I'm linking my Happy Fall card over at


Next up is this nutty card:


Team up those sweet acorns with that fun sentiment and BAM, insta-fun card!

This challenge over at retro sketch is going to be easily a go-to for me:

For those of you that follow me, you have to know that I'm a coffee-a-holic.  I'm a huge fan of Starbucks, and love all their design/marketing hoopla.  This last card is based on their latest:


fall + coffee = ♡♡♡

 One thing led to another and a layering fest was born!  Lately, my cards have been more on the clean & crisp side.  I miss using texture and layers.

What I've been enjoying doing with my Avocado Arts projects is combining the New Release with a previously released set:


There you have it!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I can't wait to see how YOU rock the new release
