Be Thankful

Hello…hope you are having a somewhat relaxing Sunday given that it is the weekend before Thanksgiving. I am playing along with the Stamp, Ink, Paper sketch challenge this week and getting this project in just under the wire! Here is the sketch and it is a good one….


I saw a card created by Windy Ellard, who is in a stamping group I belong to and absolutely loved it.  You can see Windy’s card here.  I thought the design would work well with this sketch but I did change it up a bit.

I created the centerpiece using the Vintage Leaves stamp set and coordinating dies along with a sentiment from the hostess set, Six Sayings.  This is my favorite stamp in the set but the others are really great too.  I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and fussy cut it and then matted it in Blackberry Bliss and fussy cut again.  The leaves are stamped in Crumb Cake.  The cardstock is Blackberry Bliss and the DSP is from the Farmers Market Designer Series Paper .  I popped the leaves and sentiment with dimensionals for a little umph!

I added a little DSP to the inside of the card and stamped the front of the envelope as well as adding some DSP to the envelope flap.  I really love gingham and love this paper.  I am actually running low on it and will have to order another package soon, just for the checks!

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and have a wonderful rest of the weekend.




  1. Ooooh I love this Rosanne! The gingham background gives this card a country feel, the sentiment is awesome, and the inside of your card is a pretty as the outside! So glad you joined us this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper!

  2. Your card is just beautiful! I love your leaves and the inside! I never do anything to the inside of my cards, maybe I should! Thank you so much for playing along with our sketch challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper! 🙂

  3. Hi Rosanne,, love the dsp you chose here and how you matched your envelope as well. A very nice touch. Thanks for joining us this week at Stamp Ink Paper. Carolyn xx
