For All Things, Grateful – October Class (3 of 5)

For All Thingins - Grateful For You

Good Friday Eve stampin’ peeps!  I’ve super excited to attend the fifth annual Stampers Retreat at the Oregon Gardens Resort in Silverton, Oregon this weekend!!!  I love see old friends that attend each year as well as new friends I have yet to meet.  It’s a weekend full of fun, relaxation and since it’s supposed to be sunny this weekend I may even take a stroll through the gardens.  Yes……..I’m embarrassed to say I have never gone through the gardens.  Maybe this will be the year!

Today’s post I made for Derek (hubby) for our wedding anniversary.  I wanted to keep it simple and let the sentiment shine.  It is the third design we made in my October Class.  It features the For All Things stamp set in Autumn colors [Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow].  I have become enamored with these beautiful newest In Colors.  This card starts with a “long & narrow” (3″ x 5-1/2″) Very Vanilla base.  The trio of colors were stamped on the right side.  Then……I stamped (eyeballing it) at the top and bottom, so it looks like the branches are floating onto the sentiment label.  Then I stamped the Grateful For You greeting in Blackberry Bliss.  I die cut two Blackberry Bliss Deco Label Framelits shapes and cut one in half horizontally and the other vertically.  Adhere/layer the horizontally cut pieces behind the Very Vanilla piece adjusting so you have a 1/16″ reveal on the top and bottom.  Then adhere/layer the vertical adjusting to have a 1/16″ reveal.  Next I added a banner duo of Narrow (3/8″) Mossy Meadow and Wider (5/8″) Blackberry Bliss.  I used my Bone Folder to give them the Faux Suede technique look (yes, I’m thinking I should really make a video showing how to create this technique.  Lol)  I also added a very narrow (1/16″) strip of Champagne Glimmer paper to the just a touch of sparkle.  😎  I popped the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give more height.  Yes, we all know more height is good.  I encourage you to give this quick and easy layout a try.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a good Friday eve.  Remember sharing is caring and Pinkstampagne is also on Pinterest and Facebook.  I’d love to hear from you.
