Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a fantastic week! For all of you in the U.S., I am sure you are deep in the preparation for Thanksgiving! Just in time for the long weekend, we have another amazing sketch from Freshly Made Sketches! This one comes from my talented friend, Jen Mitchell! I love her clean and fabulous style and this sketch is perfect for so many things!
I thought it was appropriate for today to make a Thanksgiving themed card. Day of Gratitude is such a perfect set for this, don’t you think?? I started with the Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP and chose this More Mustard pattern. Then I dug out my burlap and decided I liked the two together. I thought a Cajun Craze background would work well and then framed everything with Soft Suede. I stamped the leaves in those same colors and cute them out. The Bronze Button is simply perfect for this look and I tied on one of the threads of burlap that I had pulled to fray the edges. Finally, I stamped the sentiment on the Natural Cotton Ribbon. I love how you can stamp on this ribbon and guess what??!! It is carrying through to the Spring Catalog. So happy about that! I realized the background layer was still missing something so I ran it through the Stripes Embossing Folder.
I would like to take the time to tell you all how thankful I am for you, my readers, and all of the people I have met through stamping. From the design teams, to my upline, to my extraordinary customers…I am truly blessed! Thank you for all the support you give me and for allowing me to be a part of your lives!!
You will love the variety from the team this week. As always you will find loads of inspiration. I look forward to seeing what you create too!
For those who celebrate, have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!! Don’t forget that Stampin’ Up is having a huge Online Extravaganza. Just click on the Shop with Jennifer button to see all the deals.
