Thankful With All My Heart

Jen Carter Thankful Thoughts Heart wm

To say I had fun making this card is an understatement.  I really enjoyed putting the pieces together to create this! My inspiration came from this photo on Minted. To create the outside borders of this card I used several new sets combined with a few previously released sets. The majority of the images come from the new Thankful Thoughts & Eat Pie Stamp Sets.  I also used a few Encouraging Word Stamps & the tiny little star-shaped image from the Warm Welcome Stamp set.  I stamped all of the images in black and then used copics to color in the flowers and highlight some of the leaves.  The flowers are die cut with the Thankful Thoughts Dies.

For the inside sentiment I die cut the Thankful Word Die three times and stacked them together to create thickness. I then stamped the sentiment, from Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set, and adhered.

Gold & Green Thanks
For this next card I wanted to bling it up with some foil and gold accents.


Jen Carter Snarky Thanks Green Gold 1 wm

This card was also inspired by one I found on Minted quite a while back that I had pinned to my Inspiration file on Pinterest.  You can see my inspiration here.  I started by using Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink and rubbing the pad over the left side of the card panel.  After it dried I used a paintbrush and some Minc Reactive Mist to paint the brush strokes.  I dried that with my heat gun and then ran it through my Minc with gold foil.  LOVE the results!  I then used the cool, new Snarky Shadow Thanks Stamps & Die Bundle to die cut the thanks outline & then stamped the thanks with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink.  Then for the shadow I stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Gold Glitter Zing Embossing Powder.  I really like this thanks image!  For the rest of the sentiment, from the same stamp set, I stamped it on a light gray cardstock and adhered.  I finished it off by adding a few gold sequins.

Available For a Limited Time
The next bit of news is that there are some cute stamps that Laura has brought back to the LID store for a limited time!  So get them while you can!

  11. Oh goodness, that Ghostie Witch set is so cute, I got a good giggle! The cards that you have created are beautiful! I love the colors that you picked. I don't own any Copic markers, but I may have to make the investment, in small dose of corse. I also like the fact that this is something I could create as a beginner, not too many steps nor complicated. I love to create beautiful cards, but at times I do get overwhelmed if there many add ons or multiple steps. This is a skill that I can do easily!
