COUNT MY BLESSINGS
from “Creatively Delivered” Holiday Catalog
Are you ready for the new holiday catalog? If you are my customer you will receive your catalog in the next few weeks. Here is a very simple card using the new “Count My Blessings” stamp set p. 50 AND the new “Painted Autumn” DSP. p. 49 When I photographed the card in it’s simplest of forms, it needed something more…I dropped a lawn chair on the front and that seemed to take care of it. The stamps in this set are very crisp and clear.
This card will be featured at the next stamping class in Downsville on Tuesday, August 15th. Check out the HeartFeltCardArt Facebook page for details. I made it simple because there are some new stampers coming to the buffet.
Card Recipe and other details: (all dimensions are in inches)
Card base in Crumb cake 8 x 11
1st layer in Pear Pizzazz 5 1/4 x 4
I stamped around the edges of this layer with a stamp from the set
Outline layer in black 5 1/8 x 3 7/8
Top layer 5 x 3 3/4
I cut a piece of the new Painted Autumn DSP 2 x 4 3/4(it will be available on September 1st)
When I stamped the images on the front panel it need a touch of this and that. I tried to keep this card as simple as possible for brand new stampers. I made a knot from the old olive mini chevron ribbon and adhered it with glue dots. Tucked a little enamel dot in the corner and plopped a lawn chair down with snips of the foam adhesive strips to give that relaxed “I’m thinking about you” look.
Inside holds a piece of very vanilla 5 x 3 3/4 stamped in the corner with a striped strip of the reverse side of the DSP across the bottom to give it a touch of color.
There you have it…a really simple card that can be embellished and used with other stamp sets to give it that sentiment that speaks to your taste.
