3rd Annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop & Wishlist Linky Party

Hello,

Grab a coffee (tea, cocoa...), settle in and join me at STAMPlorations today for the 3rd Annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop & Wishlist Linky Party . We have a plethora of designers - including several awesome guest designers -showcasing projects, a linky party for you to share your "thankful" or "grateful" projects, a wish list linky and tons of prizes up for grabs.


Our talented Shery has recently created a line of Typografia stamps covering a variety of themes: Christmas, Coffee, In Faith, Motivate and Thankful. Today, I'm featuring two from the Thankful series.

First, I've inked up Unknown Blessings - Thankful Typografia over an embossed background. Why that choice...look closely and you'll spot the little car, with a roof-rack of travel supplies, ready to explore the world. As much as I was tempted to create a stenciled background, once the journey idea came to mind, I *had* to run with it....


My second card features the We Have Enough - Thankful Typografia.  At this time of year - Fall/Thanksgiving, the words grateful/thankful conjure images of leaves, so that's where I headed in showcasing the lovely gratitude quotation.  Trendy Leaves, inked up on a soft grey background; the stamp is in a darker grey. I'm rather liking the combination of browns/greys, of late...


As you can see - these images appeal to all crafting styles, whether you're a fan of CAS (as I am) or a mixed media artist (as many of my DT are). The possibilities are endless; all you need to do is add your own flair and lovely cards are guaranteed to result.
