Give Thanks to the Lord

Hi Friends!

This week, I am sharing another fall/Thanksgiving card designed with the Stamp Simply Clear Stamps- Give Thanks Bundle  along with the new Carta Bella Welcome Autumn 6x6 paper pad and other paper, dies, supplies from Stamp Simply !

I love the Stamp Simply Clear Stamps- Give Thanks Bundle as well as the  new Carta Bella Welcome Autumn 6x6 Paper Pad- both are perfect for Autumn/Thanksgiving and all year round!  

Also, don’t forget- Stamp Simply also has a special August promotion!


I had fun incorporating the SC179 Splitcoaststampers Sketch into the layout for this card and will also be linking to the Word Art Wednesday #503-#504 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the oak leaf image from the Give Thanks Bundle using Versafine Onyx Black ink, stamp onto white cardstock and heat set the ink with a heat tool.

Color the image with watercolor pencils and once satisfied with the water color, die cut the leaf with the matching die.

Trim a piece of the woodgrain paper from the Craft Consortium Wood Textures 6x6 Paper Pad to approx. 4” x 5 ¼”.  Mount onto a piece of black cardstock and trim close to the edge.

Cut a piece of the Carta Bella Welcome Autumn 6x6 Paper (this was actually a scrap approx.. 2” x 3 ½”) and adhere to the background panel.

Die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Tim Holtz Crochet Dies, mount onto the card front and cover the top portion of the die cut with a piece of black twill ribbon (wrapping the ends behind the panel).  

Mount the entire panel onto a white card base.

Use an embossing powder tool to de-static a piece of white cardstock, stamp the verse sentiment from Give Thanks with Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat with a heat tool.

Die cut the sentiment with the medium Hemstitch Oval Die , also die-cutting two additional ovals from white cardstock, layering the two white die cuts behind the sentiment oval.

Adhere the die cut sentiment oval and the die cut leaf image to the card front with dimensional foam.

Use a clear glitter marker to add shimmer to the leaf image and add a few black rhinestones to the sentiment oval to finish off the card.
