Simply Thankful …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hard to believe we are mid-week already! But that means we are closer to the weekend. It is so beautiful this time of year … the leaves are just starting to turn. I hope nature takes it’s time this fall so we can all enjoy the splendor.

Today’s card is a refection of this time of year … the beautiful fall colors, and a time to give thanks for all we have in our lives.

I did the “Reverse Masking” technique for this card. I cut out my leaf image using the “Leaflets Framelits” Dies to create my mask and placed it onto my Very Vanilla cardstock.

I then sponged Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze into the leaf image. When I got the color consistency I wanted … I simply lifted off the mask and revealed the beautiful leaf! I love the dimension that this technique gives.

With our new HOSTESS stamp set “Six Sayings” …. I stamped the Thankful greeting onto my card in Cajun Craze (I think I need to re-ink my pad!) However, I loved the way it turned out. What a beautiful font!! You can find this Hostess stamp set in the back of the Holiday Catalog.

Grab a few friends and do a book or on-line show so you can get this set for yourself (Contact me at lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com) for more details.

I matted my card front with Cajun Craze and then popped it up onto more Very Vanilla.

I took a left over piece of bakers twine from my September Paper Pumpkin kit and added the cute little bow to the leaf. I gave it added a bit more texture to the card.

A simple but stunning card. I’ve always loved this technique! Hope you enjoyed the card share today.

I am “Thankful” you stopped by to visit with me …

Have a beautiful day ~
