Thanks so Much!


Well, me and my Center Stage Alumni buddies are hopping again.  This time Carolina gave us a great sketch to work with.  The sketch was based on a card by my awesome stamping pal Deb Felts.  You can see Deb's card here and the sketch below. Hopefully you arrived here from Kay's blog, but if you didn't, you can go back to Stamp TV and start at the beginning.  

I have to laugh because when I first saw the sketch I immediately knew what I wanted to do, I immediately thought about doing a card with a Christmas them and snowflakes but then I remembered I did snowflakes last time we hopped and I didn't want y'all to think I was snowflake crazy (I am by the way).   

So what you will see is a  Thank You card I came up with using some of my favorite fall colors.  

I used stamps from three different Gina K. Designs sets on this card.  First I stamped the script image from the Botanicals set onto a piece of print cardstock and then I inked up one of the beautiful flowers from the Pressed Flowers set with three colors of Versacolor ink and stamped and embossed it three times over the script print.  The last two stamps I used were from the Fanciful Tags set.  I love how the images and sentiments in this set match perfectly with the Spellbinders Fancy Labels set.

The recipe is below if you would like to know the nitty gritty about this card.  I don't want to keep you long as there is so much for you to look at.  Head on over to Melissa's blog and check it out!

Recipe:
Stamps:  Fanciful Tags, Pressed Flowers, Botanicals-Gina K. Designs
Paper:  Orange-Worldwin, All prints from the Cosmo Cricket Wanted collection.
Inks:  Adirondack Caramel, Versacolor Burgundy, Paprika and Topaz
Extras:  1 tiny little rhinestone, ribbon, a prima flower, a flower from my stash and some Clear EP
