Give Thanks

  I'm up on the Stamp Simply blog today with this rustic autumn card. I started out with a kraft card base and inked the edges with gathered twigs distress ink. Next, I layered designer paper from the Wonderful Autumn paper pad over top, cutting a brown strip to go across the top and embossing it with the Woven embossing folder. I love the look of lace and twine together, and you can't get any prettier than the Venise lace Stamp Simply carries in their store. 

The leaf was stamped on watercolor card stock, colored with Arteza Real Brush Pens, and die cut with the coordinating dies. I layered a die cut leaf behind and sentiment in front and then finished it off with a seam binding bow. 

Supplies and Tools from Stamp Simply:

 Other Supplies:

  • Canson Watercolor Paper
  • Arteza Real Brush Pens
  • Versafine Clair Fallen Leaves Ink
  • Gathered Twigs Distress Ink (Ranger)

DIY Buttons

 I'm up on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog today sharing this cheery autumn card that features handmade buttons that I created using some of the smaller images from the Happy Scarecrow set. 

Do It Yourself Buttons:

  • color and die cut the images you want to turn into buttons
  • die cut a matching piece of thin cardboard (cracker/cereal boxes work great!)
  • glue your image and cardboard cutout together
  • punch two holes in the center for buttonholes
  • thread some pretty ribbon or twine through and tie
