SU Seasonally Scattered Thanks

I love the new SU Seasonally Scattered stamp set available for ordering tomorrow. It’s great when you can use a set for more than one occasion. You may have seen the “MERRY” and “LOVE” images floating around on blogs these days. I decided to play around with the “Thanks” stamp since it is timeless and Thanksgiving will be upon us before we know it. It is a pretty big stamp so it fills a page nicely- you only need to decide how to embellish it a bit. I decided to just border it with the Needlepoint Embossing Folders (still on the Clearance Rack) and scatter a few punched and pearled  Itty Bitty Accents flowers around the colorful image.

At the SU Convention this summer, we used a technique of inking up this stamp and then adding color with a sponge dauber. I used Crushed Curry all over the stamp and then daubed it with some Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive ink. I found the Blackberry Bliss ink  worked well with the Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I think it was darker and did not blend in as much as the with the Crushed Curry. I guess I could have used Blackberry Bliss cardstock but I picked up the Rich Razzleberry that matched perfectly and that’s how it went…

The sun was shining brightly today- look how bright the Crushed Curry is -it looks like I enhanced it or something. But it just came out really bright even without a light turned on. Where is that sun when I really need it with dark colors?

It’s a Clean And Simple Card so I am sharing it with the gang over at Stampin’ Up Only Challenges # 104 who are asking for a CAS card this round.

  1. Beautiful card Cindy. I’m sitting here filling out my order and keep telling myself to resist the temptation of buying that stamp 😉 Do you know what time the holiday catalog goes live? I have my order pretty much ready to submit; but, I want to order a couple of duplicates and can’t do that until it’s live….

  2. This is so pretty! I just love the colors you chose, the whole thing really pops.

    I wasn’t sure about this set but I think you just sold me on it!

  3. Gorgeous card…love the brighter yellow combined with the green and purple. Plus love that touch of embossing on the top and bottom! Thanks for playing along with the SUO CAS Challenge this time!
