Paper craft project no. 267: Thanks

2014-09-15 Thanks

It’s sketch time once again at the STAMPlorations challenge blog! We’ve got one of the fun-est and awesome-st card-makers guest designing for us: Darnell Knaus of djkardcreations! Woohoo! Check out the blog and see what she and the cool STAMPlorations girls made. And then come join in on the fun! Here’s the sketch for the next couple of weeks:

So I didn’t entirely follow the sketch and took some liberties :o) I went monochromatic in this card and gave it an autumn/fall vibe. I used my brand new Mix’d Media Chox Inx from Clearsnap/ColorBox — butternut (sorta pumpkin/dark yellow), driftwood (brown), and sparrow (dark brown) — to put together this card. First I stamped the artsy sunflower all over the card base in butternut ink (masking as I went along). On a small card stock panel, I sponged some driftwood ink, stamped the sunflower again a few times, and cut the panel in 4 rectangular pieces. I inked their edges with sparrow ink before mounting them on the card base with foam tape. I stamped the sunflower on another piece of card stock, fussy cut it, and adhered it to the panel. Next, I stamped the bold thanks sentiment in sparrow ink and finished the card by lightly inking all the edges with the same ink.

Linking up my card to the following fun challenges: Pile It On #37 – Flowers and/or Feathers; Simply Create Too #70 – Fall/Autumn; Stampavie and More #220 – Autumn Colors; Seemacrafts – Autumn; Bearly Mine September Challenge – Autumnal Color Challenge; Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Make Your Own Background; and Creative Moments Challenge #51 – Anything Goes/Fall Colors.

By the way, today is the last day of the STAMPlorations September stamp release blog hop! There’s still time to party with us and win a prize! The hop starts right here.

Thanks for stopping by!
