We Create Gratitude Blog Hop

Welcome to the November 2018 We Create GRATITUDE Blog Hop!!! My card for the hop features the Falling for Leaves stamp set. I want to be sure you know that this set is also available in a BUNDLE with the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies for 10% OFF...but I didn't use the dies on this project.
(scroll to the bottom of this post for ALL product purchase links)

This is a card we did at a Library class - I got this layout idea from a card in the 2018 Holiday Catalog (see below). You can also see the samples in My Online Store, this one can be found in the Falling for Leaves stamp set listing. I love getting inspiration from all the samples in the catalogs!

The lovely ribbon on Stampin' Up!'s sample card is the new Tranquil Tide 1/4" Velvet Ribbon. Once again, I kinda cheated with my project, because I actually had a bunch of retired Tranquil Tide ribbon that I used on my card instead. And I sandwiched some Copper Metallic Thread between the greeting and the ribbon.

The Falling for Leaves stamp set has the 'Thankful' greeting in it, and also has another greeting that says 'harvest of thanks'. When we made the card at the Library, folks could choose either greeting. I made the strip of Mint Macaron Cardstock big enough to accomodate either one.

Here you can see some of the different leaves from the set. I used Mint Marcaron, Crushed Curry, Mango Melody, and Tranquil Tide ink pads. Unlike the Stampin' Up! sample, I used a different color ink for each leaf/foliage image, so we didn't have to worry about cleaning off the stamps in between.

The card comes together quickly if you just stamp each image a few times around the outside of the card, starting with the darkest color, then finally using the lightest color to fill in at the end. I will probably do a Facebook Livestream on My Business Page so you can see how easy it is to create this card. You can either go follow me over there to get notification, or you can just check back here and I'll update this blog post with the link.
