You Are…

I love the You Are (AT-0228) stamp.  It speaks volumes on its own and makes a great focal point for your card or scrapbook page.

I used Bubble Gum (CS-0099) cardstock for the card base and then cut two smaller panels (Watermelon Fusion (CS-0039) cardstock and Through The Year Prints (PP-0050) to layer on top of it.

I love this paper – so pretty, love the gold outline.

I stamped The Ink Splat (AT-0108) in Journey Gold (IP-0106) on to a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock before stamping the You Are in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041).  Foam Squares (AD-0085) were used to adhere this piece to the card base.

For the inside of the card, I adhered a scrap piece of the same pattern paper used on the front from the Through The Year prints (there are so many beautiful papers in this pack!!!)  I also stamped some of the images from the Flower Swirls (SS-0228) stamp set in Journey Gold ink to the corner of the card base [There is a bundle option available for the Flower Swirls).  The Be You came from the Take Action (SS-0449) (there is a bundle option available for Take Action as well) stamp set and Dove comes from the Be Brave (SS-0148) stamp set. Both images were stamped in Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027) ink.

In a matter of minutes you can have a very inspiring card to give to someone.  I made these for the Be Brave Card Drive that Fun Stampers Journey is running but I also made a few additional ones to keep on hand when I need them.

The cards should be 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 but do not need to be made with FSJ products, they can be made with anything you have in your stash. They should be inspirational and uplifting.  Please feel free to include a message inside to the recipient.

Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart

I know it is not official Fall yet but how can you resist this card with this wonderful saying.  It can be used for so many things, I have been having fun creating with the Hello Fall Bundle (BD-0299) and thought I would make some Thank You cards to have on hand.  I have found that you can never have too many Thank You cards on hand.  I know I go through a lot of them.  What about you?

Give Thanks 2
I love this saying from the Pumpkin Kisses Stamp Set.

The stamp sets I used were the Hello Fall Bundle (BD-0299).  I have used this stamp set before on a previous post.  It is just so versatile and a great add to your stash.  The saying came from the Pumpkin Kisses stamp set (SS-00526).  I love the sayings in this set and can see me using them on my scrapbook pages too.  The sentiment was stamped in Dark Roast (IP-0050) ink onto Banana Cream (CS-0087) cardstock.  I find I am using the Banana Cream cardstock more and more especially for fall cards.

I embossed the Maple leaf image from the Hello Fall Bundle using our Gold Embossing Powder (IP-0101) on Pomegranate Splash cardstock (CS-0025).  Then cut it out with the coordinating dies using the Amaze Machine (TO-0134).  I love this machine, compact and it gets the job done.  (Plus I love the green!!).

I stamped the background leaf image in Green Olive ink (IP-0072). Gold Silk (IP-0096) and Cranberry Bliss Silk (IP-0094) were added to for extra interest.  Since the Cranberry Bliss Silk is a little thicker than the Gold Silk, it does add texture to your card.  I added some Fashion Gold (AC-0292) elements (they come in Silver as well).  And there are various sizes in the pack.  I am going to have to stock up on these since I know I will be using them on my holiday cards as well.

Give Thanks 1
I love the Fall colors on this card.

I took the Banana Cream panel and attached it to a piece of Dark Roast (CS-0091) cardstock before adhering it to my Pomegrante Splash (CS-0025) card base.

I used the Crease Tool (TO-0040) to shape the Maple Leaf (not sure it shows up in the photo) and then popped it up using Foam Squares (AD-0085) .  Added a bow using Natural Twine (AC-0005) and some Glue Dots (AD-0111).

I also like to decorate my envelopes.  I think it gives a nice touch and who doesn’t like happy mail!!

Give Thanks 3
I love our Oatmeal Cookie A2 envelopes (ST-0119)
Give Thanks 4
Whip Cream A2 envelope (ST-0118)

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and that it has inspired you to make some Fall cards even if it isn’t officially Fall yet.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Fall Crafting!!
