Third Thursdays Blog Hop - Gratitude

This is only the second month of our Third Thursdays Blog we are small in number, but mighty in inky fingerprints!. This month our theme for the hop is Gratitude, and I chose to use the Falling for Leaves Stamp Set. {you'll find individual Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll}

I just returned from a Stampin' Up! event called OnStage LIVE that was held in Orlando, Florida. At the event, one of the things we were challenged to do was to create #simplestamping projects, which are projects created with just stamps, ink, and paper. The idea is to use just ONE stamp set, and not a lot of extra doodads like punches and dies, and other tools. I *might* have cheated by using Linen Thread, but it is a very simple and cost effective embellishment.

You can't get any simpler than using the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes, because in just one package you get 20 cards that are already cut and scored, and you get 20 envelopes that fit them. (I could only get one pic before my camera died, so you'll have to imagine the envelope!) I also used 4 ink pads on my card, starting with Early Espresso for the greeting. Each of the leaves were inked up fully, then stamped off once on Grid Paper (or scratch paper), to create lighter hues of Cajun Craze, Melon Mambo, and Mint Macaron on the card.

Stampin' Supplies: Falling for Leaves stamp set, Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes, Early Espresso ink pad, Mango Melody ink pad, Cajun Craze ink pad, Mint Macaron ink pad, Linen Thread, Paper Snips (to trim the Linen Thread), Grid Paper.
