Thankful for You

Hey everybody! Just shaking my head at the speed December is blowing by! We’ll very soon be welcoming a new year! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have an adorable Trinity Stamps Ambassador inspiration project to share today that I created with the Thankful for You stamp set and coordinating Thankful for You die set! Our Ambassador term is coming to an end on December 31st so this last project is a symbolic thank you to Trinity Stamps for having me (and the rest of the Ambassadors) along for the last six months! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis White 110# cardstock and layering panels of of the Stamp Anniething Autumn Life 6×6 double-sided papers which I cut at an angle and adhered to the card base with a strip of gold skinny washi tape at the seam. I stamped the focal image from the Thankful for You stamp set in brown ink on CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock, stamped again in Versamark and heat embossed with Hero Arts clear embossing powder. I colored the image with alcohol markers and cut it with the coordinating Thankful for You die set. I adhered the image to three additional plain die cuts for a little dimension, and then adhered it to the card front. I added several gemstones from the Topaz Twinkle Embellishment Mix to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock and embellished it with a strip of leftover patterned paper used on the front and a strip of the gold skinny washi tape. I stamped the sentiment from the Summertime Sentiments stamp set in brown ink and layered the panel on another piece of patterned paper.

And one more look… I’m so smitten with how this turned out, even though it is a Fall-themed card and it’s Winter here, lol! It was primarily the sentiment that I was after and it definitely works!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
