I was inspired to make this card by the photo that was featured in the Stamp TV Mix It Up Monday Challenge in which they posted an inspirational photo. This card is my take on that photo.
The plaid pattern paper is from Lawn Fawn. I layered the pattern paper onto a piece of dark brown card stock and then die cut the panel using a Die-Namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle die. My leaves were stamped with a Hero Arts ink pad and also a Kalaidcolor Ink Pad. These rainbow ink pads work great to capture the colors of Autumn. Both the stamps and the dies for the leaves are in the kit.
Once I had the leaves attached where the plaid and brown card stock met I then added my black and white gingham ribbon which was also from Gina K. Designs. This panel was then mounted onto a white card base.
My final step was to stamp the thankful sentiment from the kit in black ink onto white paper and then die cut it. I also stamped the I'm so in black ink on white card stock and fussy cut that. Each of these were then popped up onto the plaid paper.
I am really happy the way this turned out. And, even if I did not get as great a stamping of the leaves as one really should I still like it. Good thing I am not on a design team as I know that I don't always get things perfect. I just am making my designs for the fun of it. And, hopefully, whoever gets this card will overlook the imperfections.
Well, another dreary day and cold now. Maybe summer is really over. No rain so far today but there is still that chance and it still feels very damp with all we got in previous days. I am going to have to snuggle in more tonight to keep warm as I am sure the hubby will not allow us to turn on the furnace
I thank you for visiting and for all of the sweet comments you leave. It sure makes me feel good to read all of them.
