Grateful With Caryn

August 25, 2018

Hey there, Caryn here with a card I created using the gorgeous new Grateful stamp set and co-ordinating dies.  This is only a small set (3x4 ") but it certainly packs a punch and you can create so may different looks.  I stamped the oak leaves a few times with Avery Elle Truffle dye ink so I could use some warm, fall colours from my Copics collection.  By using a brown ink rather than a black or grey, it helps to give an overall Autumnal tone to the colour scheme.

I stamped and die cut the little acorns and added some little dots of colour which adds a bit more texture than just colouring a solid blend.

For the card base I opted for a stone colour, again to bring in some warmth and then die cut a panel using my all time favourite Avery Elle background die, Horizontal Stripes Elle-ments from white card.  If you haven't added this die to your collection yet then you must - it is SO useful.  
To bring everything together I arranged the leaves into a kind of swag or wreath on the front of the panel and then stamped the "thankful" sentiment from the set (SO happy that this sentiment has a co-ordinating die) and die cut it and finished off with a small banner with the "for you" stamped on to it.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
