Give Thanks for Simple Blessings
Good morning! I realized I haven't posted any thing on my blog in several days - it's not that I haven't been busy creating (I just can't show you what I'm up to right now!) I am really blessed in so many ways - and love the sentiment I used on this card.
I was in the mood for fall, so I grabbed some Justrite Stamps (Autumn Blessings and Vintage Oval Labels) so that I could play along with their Fall challenge.I love how I can mix older Justrite stamps with the newer frames - It really gives me so many options! For my leaf bouquet - I cut oak leaves from the Tim Holtz Tattered leaves die, and shaded them with Art Institute Glitter. I "tied" the bouquet with seam binding, and added part of a felt flower from Epiphany Crafts and topped it with an epoxy made with the Shape Studio Tool Round 25.
I also added the smaller epoxies made with the Shape Studio Round 14 tool - around my stamped image.
