Today I say Thank You to all of the Veteran’s that have served our country through the years. How can one adequately let these brave heroes know how much they are appreciated? A simple Thank You doesn’t seem enough but it is genuinely given from the heart. Thank You for giving me the freedom to do what I want – when I want to and for keeping my family safe!
Today at Aud Sentiments we are also giving thanks with a Happy Thanksgiving for those of us that live stateside or someone/something you are thankful for, for those that reside in other countries.
I love the look of the fall wreaths but I didn’t have a stamp for one so I took a small Stampin Up stamp and stamped in a circle using two different shades of ink – I think it turned out pretty well. The sentiment is computer generted. I embossed a background with the Autumn folder, added a ribbon and bow tied with a button to complete the card.
For my second card, I used some Stampin Up DP. I had so much fun playing with all of my goodies! The stamp I used is from Karen’s Doodles. I colored the image using copic markers. The small pumpkin in the corner was made by punching out 4 circles, folding 3 in half and gluing them together and then gluing them on to the base of the 4th circle to which I added a green stem. The sentiment is computer generated.
If you look at the center of the medallion you will be able to see the stamp I used for the first card and for the bonus card.
For the bonus card, I took the stamp and rather than go around in a circle I radiated out from the center of the circle – like wagon spokes.
I took the stamp and stamped on a circle to make the medallion feature in the middle of the card.
If you look closely you will be notice I paper pierced a border and then mounted it on cardstock.
The sentiment was computer generated.
All three cards have various Spellbinder diecuts used.
I’m glad you were able to stop by and I hope I inspired you to try a few of these techniques.
Thanks for joining us at Aud Sentiments and I hope you will play along with our Challenge!
