Thankful for You!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration on Thursday, joined by some friends, and in this season of giving thanks, stamping, and especially my stamping friends, are high on my list of things for which I am thankful!  So, please know I am very thankful for you!!!

I also have some special thank you cards to share with you!  First is a clean and simple card, made with "thanks" from the Seasonally Scattered stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink, and dressed up with the Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing folder:

The next card takes things up a couple notches . . . I again used the "thanks" from Seasonally Scattered, but this time, embossed it with Early Espresso Embossing Powder, then watercolored the letters using my Aquapainter and Mossy Meadow ink.  However, before all that, I used the Hardwood stamp and stamped that in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake Card Stock.  I added a strip of Color Me Autumn Designer Washi Tape, plus Pear Pizzazz and Blackberry Bliss banners, and a Naturals Button (retired) with a bit of Old Olive Baker's Twine:

My next card again uses the Hardwood background stamp, but this time in Baked Brown Sugar on Baked Brown Sugar Card stock.  The leaf in the background is from the Kind of Eclectic Stamp set, stamped in Mossy Meadow.  I stamped the images from White Christmas on to watercolor paper in Brown Stazon ink, then colored using Baked Brown Sugar, Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, and Cherry Cobbler inks.  Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon adds a pop of color.  The "give thanks" is from Really Good Greetings.  This card was inspired by this card by Nicole Tugrul.

And, here's another card, using the Wondrous Wreath set, with fall colors (love the versatility of this stamp set!)  The card base is Crushed Curry, with a layer of Blackberry Bliss card stock, topped with Crumb Cake card stock stamped with the Hardwood background in Crumb Cake (my hardwood stamp got a pretty good workout this fall!).  The colors on the wreath are Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, and Blackberry Bliss.

Hope you enjoyed these!  Thanks for visiting!

P.S.  Don't forget about the Online Extravaganza going on for a couple more days!
