Let us give thanks


It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we have an inspiration board for you. This challenge is a fun cross between a photo challenge and a color challenge. You can choose to be inspired by the colors, the photograph, or both!




To create my card I:
  • Stamped 5016-N, Genealogy in Walnut Stain Distress Oxide (Ranger) on white card stock
  • Stamped 5127-K, Maple Leaf Sil. and 5110-I, Oak Leaf Sil. in these colors of Distress Oxide:
    • Walnut Stain, Fired Brick, Wild Honey
  • Tore the leaf panel at an angle and layered it over the text panel
  • Inked all my panels with Ground EspressoDistress Ink (Ranger)
  •  layered the stamped panels on brown card stock and embossed it all with the Basket Weave embossing folder from Darice
  • die cut a circle and scallop circle using Spellbinders Nestabilities
  • stamped the maple leaf in fired brick distress oxide on my die cut circle
  • stamped 2826-H, Let Us... over the leaf in walnut stain distress oxide and added faux stitching with a Sharpie marker
  • tied a twine bow around my card front and popped up my circle with mounting tape
