Thankful for YOU

Yes, I am Thankful for YOU,
each and EVERY one of you that come to visit!


Today I have combined stamping, misting, delicate sparkle, glitter, fussy cutting and burlap with a sketch to make a CAS card.

The two stamp sets I used worked perfectly together, even though they are from different companies.  The sentiment is a beautiful mix of fonts and there is so much amazing detail in the leaves.

I cut a length of burlap to fit my 5"x7" card base and trimmed it down to make a narrow strip.  I trimmed a strip of sparkling orange glitter cardstock to fit the burlap panel and adhered the burlap on top by adding tiny dots of liquid adhesive.

I placed the cling rubber stamp in my MISTI (foam layer removed) and stamped it twice on a piece of a smooth cream cardstock panel using Memento Expresso Truffle Ink.  I took the panel and misted it with a combination of  Woven Burlap, Kraft and Moss Glimmer Mist, drying it each time between each colour.  I put the panel back in my MISTI, stamped again to darken the leaf design then fussy cut them all, giving a delicate curl to the tips for some extra dimension.

I took a 5"x7" card base and placed it in my MISTI (with foam layer in place), aligned the stamp against where I was going to place the burlap panel then printed it twice with Memento Expresso Truffle Ink.  I went over the sentiment with my Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter brush to give it a delicate sparkle and shine to match the leaves and orange glitter panel.

I adhered the orange glitter - burlap panel panel in place then adhered the leaves.


There is so much sparkle that it is difficult to capture in a photo.  The orange glitter cardstock is a vibrant orange, the leaves are a delicate mix of three different Glimmer Mist shades and the sentiment has a luscious Wink Of Stella sparkle.  As you move it around, the colours in the leaves change.
