I love the sentiments in Emily's new Thankful and Blessed set! It also comes with the wreath swags to perfectly frame each beautiful, handwritten greeting, and I noticed both the sentiments and branches were just right for adding to the circle window in my Holiday Frame! Yay! Love these new options!
After stamping the frame in GKD Dark Chocolate, I stamped the wreath in GKD Jellybean Green on the edge of the circle. I used a marker to color in the leaves and above and below each swag. I used the same marker to color in the rest of the frame s borders. Then, after cleaning the greeting stamp really well, and masking off around the frames middle belly band section, I repeatedly inked up just the GOOD from the scripture and stamped it over and over in the same colors to make my own background! GOOD times 10! Any little open areas I filled in with just a bit from the leafy branch. I also traced a few choice words from the verse with the green to make them stand out. Envelope is GKD Jellybean Green.
Next, I have a sample with Hannah's Whimsical Wild Flowers. I stamped the flower element on white cardstock in GKD Jet Black Amalgam, and then colored in the sections of the leaves with different greens to look more like stained glass (you know, since they're "whimsical"?!) I used a few Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to shade the flowers. I tapped the darker marker a few items to splatter the background and then sponged on a bit of GKD Peach Bellini to match the card base. I added a GKD Black Onyx mat and stamped the flower one more time onto the base to line up with the uncolored flowers at the bottom left.
I have a GKD Black Onyx mat and stamped the flower one more time onto the base to line up with the uncolored flowers at the bottom left. I stamped the greeting and cut it out with the oval from my Fabulous Label die set. This is popped up on foam squares.
Let's go see what the rest of the team made with these wonderful sets! Remember to comment for a chance to win a gift certificate!
