This week the chosen theme for Simple Stamping is Thank You in Harvest Colors.
The featured stamp set is Winter Woods along with By the Dock, Parcels & Petals and Country Home for the sentiments. The chosen colors, Soft Suede, Bumble Bee and Cinnamon Cider evoke a Fall seasonal feel.
Easy – You Make a Difference
The sentiment from By the Dock, is a favorite. I like the font and the size of the greeting.
The birch tree trunks image is stamped to the right in 2nd generation Soft Suede (stamped off – once). The sentiment, on the left is stamped in Cinnamon Cider. The Very Vanilla panel is matted with Bumble Bee and set upon a Soft Suede card base. I allowed for a little extra matting to give space for a simple bow embellishment, in Cinnamon Cider In-Color Ribbon and Linen Twine, to add interest to this very simple card.
Step Up – Thank You
The tree grove image was inked in Bumble Bee, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso with Sponge Daubers direct to stamp. This gives the impression of fall foliage. The ground has been “littered” with leaves using the shadow stamp image.
The sentiment is from Parcels and Petals. Another favorite. The font is simple but pretty and small enough to use in tighter spaces.
Stepping Up this card, the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder was used to add texture to the Bumble Bee mat. The “ribbon” is a strip of In-Color Cinnamon Cider patterned paper. All elements have been arranged upon a Soft Suede card base.
To hide a tiny smudge (Embellishment Opportunity), the smallest Champagne Rhinestone was added to cover it up. Things look better in sets of three – so two additional Rhinestones were added for balance.
Keeping it simple, the card would look just as pretty without texture on the Bumble Bee mat and rhinestones and a strip of Cinnamon Cider card stock instead of patterned paper.
Stepped Up – Simply Thankful
Included in the Suite of products related to Winter Woods, there is a set of Dies: In the Woods and an embossing folder: Woodland. These products were used for the Stepped Up version of my Thank You cards.
Cinnamon Cider ink was added to the embossing folder with a Sponge Brayer before putting it through the Embossing Machine. This created the outline of the trees on the Very Vanilla panel.
To soften the look, a piece of Vellum was added over top. The Vellum is attached with a few strategically placed glue dots. The Cinnamon Cider In-Color Ribbon was then wrapped around the bottom of the panels.
I am such a fan of copper. I just love the Brushed Metallic cardstock in copper and used it for the two tree images that were die-cut.
The sentiment from Country Home was color clear embossed in Soft Suede and Versamark on a piece of Bumble Bee In-Color patterned paper before die-cut with a Stitched Shapes Die oval.
Every element was arranged upon a Soft Suede card base. Two of the largest Champagne Rhinestones were added to the upper corners to hide the glue dots securing the Vellum in place and three small rhinestones add bling to the sentiment label.
Thank you for spending some of your time with me today. Cheers, Jolanda
