Thankful

blog header

Time once again for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew blog hop and this month’s theme is giving thanks.  The Country Home stamp set and Country Lane DSP are perfect for creating a card that is all about being thankful for those special people in your life.

Thankful w

I wanted to use at least some non-traditional colors, so went with the richness of Blackberry Bliss as the main color.  The card base is a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock that is cut 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″.  That makes it a side-fold card which gave lots of room for the lovely stamped images.  I used a pice of Whisper White measuring 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ for the design panel and stamped as follows:

  • Milk can was stamped using Gray Granite ink and colored in with both the light and dark Smoky Slate Blends.  I then stamped the oval with Tuxedo Black stamped off and then stamped Love in the center with the same ink, again stamped off.
  • The floral cattail and leaves image was stamped in Gray Granite and colored in with Soft Suede dark for the cattails, Blackberry Bliss light and dark for the leaves, Old Olive light and dark for the artichoke, Crumb Cake light for the smaller leaves and Daffodil Delight dark for the berrries.
  • The sentiment was stamped in Blackberry Bliss.

The design panel was then glued to a piace of Blackberry Bliss cardstock measuring 3-5/8″ x 4-5/8′.  I wrapped a length of Braided Linen ribbon beneath the sentiment and secured to the back using Mini Glue Dots.  I then mounteda piece of the beautiful Country Lane DSP which measures 4″ x 5-1/4″ to the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The design panel was placed on top of this using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lasty, I added three ofthe silver metallic pearls for accents.

I hope you enjoy the card and will give it a try.  Below is a list of all items used to make it.  Now on with the hop!  Just click on the Next or Previous buttons to see more thankful creations!

Thanks a Bunch – FB Live Tuesday Beginners Card Series

Thanks a bunch to everyone who joined last night’s Facebook Live.  Sorry for the technical difficulties with the video but I think it was still good enough to post on  YouTube and share with you.
