Gratitude for Days

Hello stamping friends. I have been working with a new stamp set called Gratitude for Days. It is on page 38 of the new Holiday Catalog.



This is a photopolymer stamp set which makes it really easy to stamp things where you want them because you can see through the stamp and the clear block.  They also bend really nicely to create vines and arcs.

   

My goal this year is to be creative with the stamp sets and create at least five things from each stamp set I purchase.  This stamp set did not disappoint. So many possibilities and I haven't even made any tags or treats yet.

I was inspired by wreath Sara Douglas showed at Inspire, Create, Share this summer. I wanted to do a version on a card. The images are colored in with blender pens.

 
 

Here are two versions of the same card embossed in gold and colored in with Stampin' Write markers.


The next card has some simple sponging and stamped images.


One more card with simple stamping.  (Sorry, I can't get a good image on this one. The ribbon seems to be too shiny for the camera to focus. Ribbon is Very Vanilla seam binding rubbed over a Cajun Craze ink pad.)



I am running out of time for today. I will put up another post tomorrow about the techniques.

Enjoy!
