Happy Tuesday, peeps! If you're looking for my Try Stampin on Tuesday post, it's here.
It's my second week as guest designer for Stamp, Ink, Paper and the prompt this week is "grateful":
I had been looking through my fall/Thanksgiving stamps and came across a SU set called Truly Grateful, and thought the sentiment would work well with one of elements from this month's Paper Pumpkin kit:
You may know I have a love/hate relationship with shaker cards! The concept is great, but sometimes the execution is more work than it is worth! The PP kit actually has a row of three diecut leaves and a plethora of gorgeous sequins in three different sizes, plus their foam strips make it fairly easy to create the shaker. But I didn't want three leaves, I only wanted one leaf because I wanted a square element to use with my Layering Squares die....(I did use a Stitched Square die too, but this one is not SU since I hadn't received them yet when I made this card, LOL!)
So I trimmed the panel down and used the extra piece to stamp the sentiment on, then carefully punched it with an oval punch and placed it above the leaf. The stitched square is Top Top Taupe; the scalloped square is Cajun Craze. I added a Delightful Dijon stitched leaf (Lawn Fawn) and mounted everything on a piece of Autumn Day paper by PhotoPlay. I just love those little leaves! And the sequins are so pretty inside and out!
I hope you'll check out the Stamp Ink Paper blog and see what the other designers have created using this theme....and share yours with us as well!
