11.20.20…..Happy Friday, everyone! It’s already time for another TGIF Challenge! This week, we have and Inspiration Challenge! We hope that it inspires you to create a card or project that will help you express your gratitude to a special someone, or maybe a special gift or decor item for your home to help remind yourself and others all that you have to be thankful for. You might also be inspired by the colors, layout, or beautiful foliage in today’s challenge. I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week, over at TGIF Challenges. We would love to see what you create!
For this card, I started with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I used the “smooth” side of the mountain range stamp (from the Mountain Air Bundle), along with Soft Suede, to stamp the mountains. I stamped the first mountain range (with full strength ink), and then stamped the second mountain range (without re-inking the stamp). I also used my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to add some speckling. To create the speckling, I “flicked” the thick end of the marker against the edge of the marker cap, “flicking” outward towards my paper. I then embossed the paper with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, and used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to a Whisper White Thick Cardstock Base.
To create the trees, I used stamps from the Mountain Air Bundle, and cut them out with the coordinating dies from the same bundle. I stamped the “double trees” in Pumpkin Pie, and stamped the single tree two times in Cinnamon Cider, stamping one tree at “full strength” and “stamping off” the second tree. I then used a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the card base.
The sentiment (from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set) was heat-embossed on Soft Suede Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I cut it out, I popped it up with a couple of Mini Stampn’ Dimensionals. For some fun texture, I added some Copper Grosgrain Ribbon (from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack), and cut it in half vertically. For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
