Fall is a favorite time of year to pull out my warm and cozy paper-crafting products in a beautiful array of colors.
It’s Jill Cornell here today to share a Thanksgiving card idea with you, and this time I even incorporated stamps! I adore the “Harvest Lane” collection from Simple Stories and featured the line on this card. I cut the “thankful” bingo card in approximately half and then tied twine around it before tying it in a bow around a heart sticker. A couple of sentiment stickers adhered to stamped leaves – “blessed” and “grateful” – keep with the Thanksgiving theme.
Here’s a look at the dimension of the card…
And I’m going to share a simple tutorial with you on how I stamped the leaves. The set is “Mod Leaves” by Cocoa Daisy. I used pigment inks from American Crafts with clear embossing power. And yes, I stamped on vellum! I love the softness that vellum brings to my projects. (Note: Do not hold heat gun too close to the vellum when embossing and keep the gun moving so the vellum does not melt.)
Stamp the image with a coordinating ink color. (Note: I have found that I am able to get a crisp image by using a foam mat underneath my paper.)
Cut out the image and adhere to project.
Stamping is a great way to add pops of color to projects and the heat embossing helps preserve the images.
