Happy almost Thanksgiving..!

Hi there! Happy Friday my friends!

How are you doing? I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful day!

So… I know I’m a little ahead here and we are still in October, but I really wanted to share this super easy Handmade card to do for Thanksgiving…. really simple and easy!

You only need the right stamps, which you may find them in the Sweet Stamp Shop (where I got mine)

In this card I used the October release Holiday Sentiments set and Fall Leaves, which I find really useful, whit lots of holidays hehe, I did talked about it in my last post, I’m technically obsessed with them..! 🙂

This card is pretty easy…. you need:

– One card stock preferable A2, your choice of color, I think brown goes well with this earthy card.

-Holiday Sentiments and Fall Leaves Stamp Sets

-Gold embossing powder

-Copic markers (YR12 – YR14 – Y00 – Y02 – YG03 – G21 – E 13 – E15) I used my copic markers, but maybe you prefer other tools to use, like color pencils, watercolor, etc, that’s completely up to you.

-Black ink

-Thanksgiving inspired color paper, in this case I chose this copper looking paper.

– Glue and 3D foam squares with adhesive.

After you have all your materials (you can alter or improvised the materials named above, I do it all the time hahaha) you start by stamping the leaves with the blank ink, let it dry for a couple minutes before you start to color them.

Cut your color paper and glue it to the card stock, in a different piece of paper you can stamp the “Happy Thanksgiving” message and emboss it with the gold powder, after you heat up the gold powder you may add some 3D foam squares on the back so you can glue it with some depth, this way you start playing with shadows, and your card is not completely flat.

After you colored the leaves, you can cut them so you can start gluing them on the card… add  3D foam squares to some of them so you add different depth to that area… and you are done!

Hello there and Happy Friday!!! 🙂

I wanted to share these cards I made with the awesome October release stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop, for these projects I used the Holiday Sentiments Set that by the way it covers technically every holiday you can think of… one set, many opportunities! Don’t forget to check it out!

So… many of you may know what embossing is… but if you don’t know let me tell you what it is… It’s technically another way to stamp, it’s pretty easy and you get awesome results. You need a specific heating gun, a watermark stamp pad and the embossing powder (I got them from Paper Source) and of course your awesome Sweet Stamps 🙂

You will apply your clear stamp the same way you usually do with ink, but you will use this watermark stamp pad instead (it’s like a clear glue), after you applied it you will put some embossing powder on top of this area and you will remove the leftover powder, once you are done with those previous steps you will heat it up with your heating gun… and you are Done! Easy like that!

The best part is… with great stamps and the right color powder you can get really cute results! Give it a try!

You will love it!
