Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop - November 2021

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I am taking part in a blog hop with some fellow enthusiasts who love sharing their creative talents using their Stampin' Up!® products. This month the Stamping Inkspirations blog hop is all about Being Thankful for You.

My card today is simple in construction, but the sentiment packs a punch and there is no doubt as to its meaning. This thanks, from the Biggest Wish stamp set, has a handwritten feel about it and although the curvy lines are soft and flowing, using it repeatedly makes a bold statement.

I've only used two colours on my card; Flirty Flamingo and Basic White. Well, three colours if you include the gold ribbon and metallic pearls! By stamping the sentiment full strength and then again without reinking to get the lighter shades it looks as if more colours have been used - I love using this technique. It's so simple and effective. For the card front the words are stamped, in rows,
over a white panel to create a background piece which then sits next to a thin strip of patterned paper.  

For the focal point the thanks is stamped again, punched using the Tailor Tag Punch and layered onto a Flirty Flamingo Stitched So Sweetly die cut. They layer together beautifully. To finish the card there is twisted gold ribbon under the label and a trio of Metallic Pearls. Whether you are saying thanks for a helping hand or a gift, sending a card is the perfect gesture to express those sentiments. Let's acknowledge all those acts of kindness!

I hope that you are inspired by my card today and that you will continue along the hop to see what the others have created too. Enjoy the projects. We would love to hear from you and so if you have been inspired, please leave a comment.
