Thanks & Giving - October SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we are highlighting this fun and seasonal stamp set, "Thanks & Giving".

This set comes with 17 images, perfect for this time of the year. While it is a D-size stamp set, valued at $18.95, you can get it for $5, in October only, when you place an order of $50 or more. You can find those details here.

If you are coming from Amy's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants through this link, if you were to get lost along the way.

This card. I love it and hope you do as well. To me it's simple and soothing; perfect for the Fall. Thankfully we have experienced a touch of cooler weather, and rain, over the last week or so.

I did fussy-cut the heart and leaf images. The leaves were stamped with Fern Ink and then I used the waterbrush pen to obtain ink from the ink pad to color them in.

The heart pattern is the Zip Strip from one of the sheets of patterned paper contained within the Grateful Heart paper pack. I love the accent that it provides for finishing off this card, along with the White & Gold Skinny Ribbon and Gold Glitter GemsThe Fern polka dot paper is from the pack.

Circle Stitched Thin Cuts were used, on Ballerina cardstock, underneath the focal point. Thin 3-D foam tape was added for dimension.  

Cardstock colors used are Pomegranate and Ballerina, one of our new colors.

I know I have many things to be thankful for, even when life may throw a curve ball my way. I pray the same is true for you and that when life gets tough, you can take a moment to reflect on the positives.

Head on over to Cat's Blog. She is sure to inspire you. She always does so for me.

Wishing you a season of blessings and papercrafting!
