Fall Thank You


Welcome and thanks for stopping by. Today’s featured design is a fall themed thank you card that fits into a Splitcoast Stampers challenge.  I followed a technique called water stamping outlined in Splitcoast Stampers to make the background paper. I also followed a sketch issued for a contest by Hero Arts for the design (although I did not enter the contest). I’m in a fall sort of mood these days--I am looking forward to seeing the many colors as the leaves change and the temperature cools. Now that football  pre-season is underway, fall will be here before we know it. :-)  I made the leaf focal point by die cutting metal and coloring the metal with alcohol inks. I used a Fiskar's clear backgrounder stamp (from a set called Henna Petals) on paper that had been sponged with various SU! orange toned inks to create the water stamped background. That’s all for now.

Stay inspired,

  1. Oh Sabrina this is just in time! I too did a water stamped background paper yesterday but couldn't think of something to add that wouldn't cover the beauty of the paper. How lucky am I that you gave me this gift of inspiration today!

    Also today I was 20 minutes on Hold awaiting an insurance company to correct our account and I got to use that 20 minutes touring your fabulous web site Gallery while I waited. Lucky me! There's something so compelling about your work, I never tire of looking at the same cards over and over gain.

    Thanks for sharing.
