Pals November Blog Hop: "So Thankful"

Welcome to the Pals November Blog Hop, we’re so thankful you stopped by. This month we’re showcasing projects that feature Stampin’ Up! Thanksgiving and “Thank You” products. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or you may have come from the previous blog on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you can enjoy each and every beautiful project.

This project was pretty simple. I cut a leaf out of watercolor paper using a leaf die from the Stampin' Up! Leaflets Framelits Dies. I watercolored one side of the leaf by using the Pumpkin Pie reinker & water. 

I used the smallest width Project Life Journaling Pen to lightly outline the leaf and go around the perimeter of the top layer of the card. Don't be afraid of this technique, it's not supposed to look perfect!

The black wispies are just very thin cardstock that I curled with my bone folder. The splatter was made using a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. The words were embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and are from the Remarkable You stamp set. I doubled up on the Stampin' Dimensionals to really boost the focal point of this card. Supply list is below. 

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

  1. Your blog name is so appropriate, Kim. This card is pure art and very lovely!

  2. Kim, I Iove the way you've added the additional sketches to the leaf and outside of your card. Your project is so clean and fresh and beautiful.

  3. Very creative. Can't wait to create a card similar to this. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Thanks Carrie. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  4. Beautiful Kim! I don't think you can make a card that isn't.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind compliment!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous. I love the look you achieved with the watercolor, splatters and how you added the drawn look to the leaf. Stunning!

    1. You are so sweet Shawn. I love everything you do!

  6. It may be simple…but it sure is stunning! Love the partial watercoloring on the leaves. The lines are the perfect accent for your card.

    1. Thanks Dawn. I love the randomness of the lines...they filled in when I wasn't sure where to go from there!

  7. Kim, lovely! All of this design makes me smile! I love the accents and the use of different products for touches and wisps everywhere!

    1. Thanks so much Jackie. I appreciate the comment!
