Hope that you are having a wonderful day with family and friends, counting your blessings and enjoying one another! Today on the Rubbernecker Inspiration Blog, the design team have a special treat for you, a visual feast of beautiful cards to celebrate this beautiful day of blessings and thanksgiving!
The card I am sharing today is another example of how versatile Rubbernecker background stamps can be. Today’s card features Vertical Stripe #686 and an inspirational sentiment, Biggest Adventure #803-04. I also used the same leaf die cuts that I used on my last card, but this time I used them on some of that fabulous “Color Burst” paper that I made using Color Burst Watercolors, and Heavy Metals!
I stamped the just a part of the Vertical Stripe Background in dark brown ink on kraft card stock. This left room for me to add the lovely sentiment in the right hand bottom corner, stamped in the same ink. For the orange panel I used my Vertical Stripe stamp to first stamp the lines vertically, then turned the stamp and stamped the lines horizontally in the same ink, instant gingham! One stamp , two very different background looks!
I die cut my leaves with scraps of my watercolor paper from my Halloween cards, paper I made using Color Burst Water Colors and Heavy Metals, these are so fun, if you have not tried them you really should!! I inked the edges of the leaves to add definition, and added them to my orange gingham panel. With a little dark brown velvet ribbon to finish it off my card was done, easy as pie! Speaking of pie, I need to go and get myself ready for our feast, my mom has baked several different pies, and cheesecake too!! Yum!!
Hope your day is filled with blessings, family, friends, laughter, and joy!! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂 I hope you will check out all the other beautiful card on the Rubbernecker Inspiration Blog, they are really lovely!! Enjoy!!
