Thankful




I have been playing with the gorgeous new SSS Maple Leaf Corner Wafer Die. This is my second card using the pieces of the die cut in reverse. I smooshed several Distress Inks in fall colors on to watercolor paper and die cut it.  I also used the die on SU brushed gold cardstock. In the previous card, I used the gold outline and inserted the water colored leaves into the negative space.  For this one, I did the opposite. "Thankful" was a die cut sentiment from PTI's Phrase Play #7 Die.  The splatters are stenciled with Tim Holtz Speckles Layering Stencil and Tea Die Distress Ink. The May Arts silk ribbon is rich and gorgeous and has been in my ribbon collection for a long time. This is a bit of a departure from my usual look because of the ribbon, but I really like it.  I am linking this card to the following challenges:

 


 Use a new stamp or a new tool or a new technique or a new die...
 
 
Thank you so much for stopping in today.  I greatly appreciate your visit and your comments.

I love both of the cards you made with that cool new SSS leaf die. What a great way to set fall on your cards. And, of course your bow is so very dramatic--love that too.
