Inks and Stamps and Brushes...Oh My!

I love the Fall and all the beautiful colors Mother Nature has to share (albeit for a very short time). It is these colors that inspired the card I have to share with you today.

I attended a recent Stamp Show in Sevierville, TN where I got to do some demo's for the fabulous Technique Junkies (thanks, Pat!!!). Of course, I just HAD to pick up some new stamps while I was there. This one just caught my eye. I immediately saw in my head what I wanted the card to look like, inspired by the colors of Fall. As soon as I got home, I pulled out my IZINK Ink Pads, Ink Blending Brushes, and the Bare Tree Duo stamp, and created this festive Thanksgiving card.

I absolutely adore how this came together so easily to create such a stunning card. I think Mother Nature would be proud. The photo below shows the additional products I used.

After stamping the image on cream CS, I used the blending brushes to add the colorful areas on the trees and on the ground. The piece was trimmed down, the edges highlighted with the Iced Americano marker, matted on Kraft CS, then adhered to a brown card base. The sentiment is from the Thanksgiving Blessings set, which I also picked up at the show.

I kept the inside of the card simple using another sentiment from the Thanksgiving Blessings set.

If you want to make some Thanksgiving cards, I highly recommend these two sets. I can even save you 10% on your order. Simply enter TJ10Ro at checkout.

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Til next time,
Keepin' it inky!

Ro, this card me jumping up and down with excitement. You truly captured autumn. I have the tree stamp and just love it and can't do it justice like you can. I'm saving this post of yours so I can CASE this beauty.
