Welcome to the November issue of the Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop!
This month is all about being thankful and grateful… because we are so blessed.
It is often so easy to take for granted all the things we have, even during this time of global pandemic. But, we are often reminded of how fast everything can be taken away from us. That is why is is so important to always let others know how important they are to you.
With that in mind… I whipped up a very simple Thank You card using the Ornate Thanks stamp set.
To create this card, I used the Stamparatus. I stamped the “THANK YOU” in Smoky Slate ink and “ever so much” in Black Memento ink. I added a piece of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and put it on a Basic Card base.
To make sure I was able to line it up on the Whisper White cardstock, I first stamped it onto a piece of the Small Grid Paper. Then I placed the white layer over this, place a magnet on it and started to stamp.
Of course, this wasn’t where I stopped… Just where I started!
This card has a blue ombre color scheme. The ink colors are Black Memento, Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight, Seaside Spray and Balmy Blue. I added a bit of Misty Moonlight Ribbon to give it a little more pizzazz.
This card uses another sheet of the Plaid Tidings DSP on an Early Espresso card base. The ink colors are Crushed Curry, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Early Espresso. “For everything” is stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I dressed it up with the Copper Metallic Ribbon and an Acorn Trinket.
Here is a Christmas Thank You Card. It uses Smokey Slate and Cherry Cobbler ink for the THANK YOUs and Black Memento ink for the smaller sentiment. I used the Sprig Punch to cut the greenery from Shaded Spruce cardstock. The hearts were punched from Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Dog Punch.
And here is the last card. I saved it for last because I think it might be my favorite one!
The Ombre effect on this card was created using Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pretty Peacock, and Night of Navy inks. I added a Crumb Cake layer and some Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Thread. All this was placed on a Pretty Peacock card base. Oh my… a couple of the new Ladybug Trinkets must have crawled their way onto the card! 😉
So, that is all I have for you this month. Here is the list of the others gals participating in our hop this month… So hop along!
