I have a lot to be thankful for. Here's my card


For my card, I started with a white A2 panel and stamped various trees multiple times, using STAMPlorations Gratitude Trees stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I mean, Gratitude Trees stamp set is a good choice for a Giving Thanks Blog Hop, right? I used 3/4", 1", 1 3/8" circle punches to punch circles from post-it notes to use as masks. I added distress inks (squeezed lemonade, rusty hinge, carved pumpkin, fossilized amber, mustard seed, barn door) using the masks and ink blending brushes, in a somewhat random fashion. I trimmed the panel slightly and adhered it to a black A2 card panel. I also die cut the sentiment using STAMPlorations CUTploratiions Thanks word die. I used some of the "extra" ink on the ink blending brushes to add color to the sentiment die cut. Here's a close-up of the sentiment die cut.


I decided to use a strip of vellum upon which I adhered the sentiment die cut. I adhered the vellum to the card panel and then adhered the card panel to a white A2 card base.

  1. What a great idea to stencil to give a little bit of color, but not have to color all of the images. GREAT idea.
