Happy Thanksgiving, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.
I decided to make a Thanksgiving card (say whaaaaa??!) using the wonderful Many Blessings stamp set and some Country Lane DSP! Take a look-see:
The layout came from the sketch we had for our use this week
And the theme definitely fits with the TGIF Theme challenge. Yes – I used it once before! It’s just that time of year!
I started with a piece of woodgrain paper from the Country Lane DSP, matted on Cajun Craze for the card front. Then I matted another design on Cajun Craze and adhered that over the card front with Liquid Glue.
Using Glue Dots, I wound several loops of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.
I matted another, smaller, panel of the same woodgrain Country Lane DSP on Cajun Craze and popped that over the Linen Trim loops with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the art, on a piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Many Blessings wreath in Early Espresso. I colored some of the leaves with Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends. Using an older Blender Pen, I colored some leaves with the Bright Copper, Vegas Gold and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paints.
When the Shimmer Paint was dry, I added the Many Blessings sentiment in Early Espresso and matted the panel on Cajun Craze. Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue and some Dimensionals.
I used a Glue Dot to adhere a copper Leaves Trinket and a bow from the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added the flourish image from Many Blessings in Early Espresso to a Whisper White panel. Then I colored the little “leaves” with the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Early Espresso and Copper Shimmer Paint flourishes on the front…
…and another dab of Country Lane DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Love this gorgeous wreath from Many Blessings – it’s so perfectly perfect dressed in Autumn colors for Thanksgiving! But – change the colors of the leaves and use the Merry Christmas sentiment and the same set would be perfectly perfect for Christmas Cards. Boom! So much bang-for-the-buck! Hope you like!
