Thank You Kindly
by Melissa Rusk

Happy Tuesday! It is finally starting to look and feel like Fall here this week so I have a fun stamped card inspired by the season. Let's get started!

For this card I used the fabulous Garden Sketches clear stamp set. I started with the many leaves on a cream piece of paper. I put a bunch of the outline leaves stamps on my clear block and stamped them in brown ink a few times to start my pattern. Then I took the corresponding solid leaves and stamped them over the outlines in a few different Fall colors. I offset the solid colors a little bit to add some interest to the pattern I created.

I stamped the Thank You Kindly on a scrap of cream and cut it out. Then I layered it on a green piece of paper before putting it on the card. For the green and brown layers of paper I wanted them to match my inks so I created my own paper. I took a cream piece of paper and then I rubbed the brown ink on each side of the paper to get one that would work for my card. I did the same thing with the green ink and another piece of paper. Now you will always have paper that matches all of the stamping you did!

To finish the card I layered all of the papers on to a kraft card and then I added a gem to finish it off. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
