So Thankful For You

Hi friends!!  Today, I am sharing this card with you that I created using the Honey Bee Stamps Bushel and a Peck stamp set!  I adore this set!  I don't know what it is about baskets, and apples, but it just seems so classic and a representation of fall to me.  And, I love how these images are big enough to hold their on for a focal point on a card!


I stamped these images down onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock.  This paper pairs well with the Zig Clean Real Brush Markers.  I used a combination of using the Zigs on their own with no water, and some areas using a detail water brush.  I was going for a real rustic look to my basic.  Like the basic had been in the elements outside :)  

I also wanted to do a combination of red and green apples.  The green really adds a nice pop of color, since the basket has a lot of warm tones to it.  

Once I was happy with the coloring, I used the coordinating dies to cut out all the images, and I strategically placed my images, and added them either using liquid glue, or giving them a bit of dimension with foam tape.  As you can see, I used my beloved Blue Prints 27 dies from MFT to place all my images onto.  It is the perfect combination of scallop and stitching to this card panel!

To finish up my card I added my sentiment which comes from an older Lawn Fawn set So Thankful, and added my main panel to an A2 sized card base with is School House Red from Simon Says Stamp. I also added some shimmer with my clear wink of stella pen.  

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to visit me!  I will be back soon with another project!
