I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving and that you were filled with family, friends, good food and thankfulness. Today’s Stamp Off Challenge is called “Let’s Be Grateful”.
I decided not to use the tradition Fall or Thanksgiving colors and theme for my card. Instead I went with pinks and purples.
Whenever I get stuck on making a card, I look for a sketch challenge to do. I found one similar to this layout but I changed it a bit and made it simpler.
I used the new Stitched Shapes Framelits. These Framelits are actually going to be in the 2017 Annual Catalog but Stampin’ Up! decided to release them early. This made me so happy since I love the look of the stitching. The best part is this set of Framelits have circles, ovals and squares!
The flowers are from the stamp set called Wild About Flowers and the sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners. The Designer Series Paper is called Blooms & Bliss.
Someone asked me how I cut the triangles of paper so evenly. It is super simple! You just cut a square (this one is 3″ x 3″) and then make a cut from one corner to the opposite corner. That way both sides are exactly the same size.
Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy have made for their Thank You cards. I am sure we will be awed!
