Truly Grateful

What are you grateful for?  I'm grateful for so many things, like this stamp set.  I was so glad to see the Truly Grateful stamp set carried into the Annual catalog--the Big Book as I like to call it! 

TIP:  When working with Glimmer Paper, attach using hot glue--because nothing likes to stick to it!

Supplies used:
Truly Grateful Stamp Set
Silver Glimmer Paper,
Basic Gray and Coastal Cabana Ink
Sponge or Sponge Daubers
Label Bracket Punch
Big Shot with Autumn Accents Bigz Die

Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Bye for now, Maria

November Stamp Club: Ornamental Pine

Here's November's project.  I love the Ornamental Stamp Set.  It is so realistic and beautiful!  I'm married to a tree guy so it's natural that I would like it.  

For the card you need:
Ornamental Pine Stamp Set
Old Olive (textured used here), Whisper White Cardstock
Old Olive, Real Red, Baked Brown Sugar, Gold Encore Ink
Big Shot with the Top Note
Stampin' Dimensionals

Not sure if you can tell, but the ornament is stamped one additional time on a separate piece of cardstock, cut out, and mounted on top of the original ornament on the Top Note with Stampin' Dimensionals.  And, the Baked Brown Sugar that was used for the pinecones are stamped on scratch paper first and then stamped on the Top Note so they fade into the pine needles.  

For our second project, we created a set of Love Notes.  Love Notes are 3 x 3 mini cards--great for gift enclosures, tags, or little notes you tuck inside lunch boxes of your loved ones.  

You will need:
Tag Talk Stamp Set
Old Olive (textured used here), Whisper White Cardstock
Old Olive Ink
Gold Metallic Baker's Twine
Label Bracket Punch
Stampin' Dimensionals 

Happy Stamping!  Bye for now, Maria
