I’ve been away from my Blog for a bit since I started a new full time job. I’m really happy about this new turn in my life, but I had to re-adjust to this new life and therefore I’ve neglected my blog in the process!!!
Today, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, I’m very grateful for my family, who is very supportive and who I deeply love. I’m grateful for my customers and followers for reading my blog post and leaving me comments!
Here’s my little Thanksgiving Curvy Box treat and Thank you card!
Stamp set: Vintage Leaves, Hardwood, Merry Everything
CS and paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Tango Tangerine, Soft Suede
Tools: Big Shot, Leaflets Framelits, Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits, Note Tag punch,
Accessories: Gold and White Baker Twine
This is 2 of the projects we made at my Stamping club in September. We used the beautiful Vintage Leaves stamp set and matching Leaflets Framelits. I love creating Fall leaves with beautiful colors, using my ink pads and sponge daubers! Each one is unique! For the Maple leaf, I started with a Daffodil Delight card stock leaf, stamped with Early Espresso and added Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler. The oak leaf was also a Daffodil Delight card stock, sponged with Old Olive and Soft Suede.
The background is a special technique, made with tissue paper applied on top of a Crumb Cake card stock. Gently wrinkle your tissue paper. Cover your Crumb Cake cardstock with glue stick. Add the tissue paper on top leaving some wrinkles in the process. Trim the tissue paper around the edges. Stamp some ink splatters with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. This is a very simple technique, but it has a unique “handmade” paper look!
