Team Stamp It Thanksgiving Blog Hop

Hi!  Welcome to the Team Stamp It! Thanksgiving Blog Hop!  Did you ever have a card in your head and actually have it come out the way you pictured it – or even better than you pictured it?  Well, that rarely happens to me – usually what I envision doesn’t translate from my brain to the final product – but in this case it did and I was ecstatic!  I love how this turned out!

SU! Vintage Leaves, Acorny Thank You

I sponged Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry ink diagonally across my Whisper White panel.  I then randomly stamped the small leaves in Elegant Eggplant ink.  Finally, I stamped the oak and maple leaves in Versamark and embossed with Copper Embossing powder.  I mounted this panel on Elegant Eggplant, tied Burlap ribbon around it.  Next, I die cut a Copper Foil and Elegant Eggplant leaf using the Paisley thinlets.  I stamped my sentiment in Elegant Eggplant, punched with the Classic Label punch, sponged the same three colors on the tag and then tied the two leaves and  sentiment around the burlap ribbon using Linen Thread.   It is shinier in real life than I captured in the picture.

I was having fun with my sponging, so made this card as well:

SU! Vintage Leaves, Petals & Paisleys

For this card, I sponged Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry inks and stamped the leaves in Elegant Eggplant.  The sentiment is inked in Cajun Craze as well and the Banner Triple punch was used to create the flag ends.  A little Thick Black Baker’s Twine to finish it off.  I need to make a few more of either card (or maybe both) to send out to family and friends next month to let them know how Grateful I am to have them in my life.

I hope today’s creations inspire you!
