Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi ,

Life always turns to be beautiful if we just see it from a different perspective no matter how tough it gets going. This year has been one such on the personal front. I m so indebted to a few friends . Adversity always shows real friends. I’m so happy I came to know my real ones. Gratitude is such a great thing, isn’t it?

Yes, Today’s card is about Thanksgiving.

Fall is my favorite season of the year. Trying to reproduce the same colors with a card is quite a challenging task. Having more inkpads would be better to compare and contrast. Its been a while since I used Lawn fawn stamps  and finally got to use it. The inspiration for my card is the photo I took of a tree. Here it is :

Steps:

1. For card base –  cut a 8.5 inch X 11 inch cardstock at 4.25 inch. Score at 5.5 inch. Make a top folding card.

2. For cardpanel  – use neenah white solar cardstock (3.75 X 5 inch).

3. Use Memento rich cocoa and stamp the tree stump . Color with copics. Use a circle die cut and draw a circle with pencil.

4. Stamp leaves using separate inkpads as mentioned above, and also using mixed inks. Use wink of stella ink pen to give the glitter effect (the effect of sun shine on leaves)

5. Stamp the sentiment with memento black ink.

6. Use inkblending with distress ink spiced marmalade.
