Inspire.Create.Challenge #030

Only a couple more Inspire.Create.Challenge Wednesdays before the end of the year! This one I enjoyed and tried to create a simpler card that let’s the sentiment be the rock star! Our theme for this challenge is Thankful. I think this is a great theme, especially for this time of year!


I’m using this week’s Product of the Week, a hostess set called Warm Hearted! It’s an amazing stamp set the has sentiments for each of the holidays from Halloween until New Year!

Oct 5

Since I was out of town for work this weekend I didn’t get Tuesday’s post up so we will be starting with my Thanks card instead of my Halloween card hehe Check back later today to see my Halloween project using the Boo sentiment!

Today’s card starts with a Early Espresso card base and then a layer of Cajun Craze. I then cut a piece of this beautiful wood texture from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper pack! I love any wood texture!! I adhered the two layers to the card base with liquid glue.

Before adhering the Designer Series Paper layer I stamped my Thanks sentiment three times using VersaMark ink. Then I added the Gold Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess then heated it until it shined using the Heat Tool. You always know when it’s fully embossed when it all has a shine to it. The powder turns shining and changes texture! Embossing is a lot of fun!!

Here’s another look at the embossing. Mine is a little spotty but I like it. I think if I added another layer of embossing using the Stamparatus then it would have a smoother texture.

Last touch was this Galvanized button. I used the Braided Linen Trim to sew threw the holes of the button then tie a double knot. Then I used Glue Dots to add it to the bottom right side of the card. I’s a nice added touch that makes it feel rustic and complete!

Below is the list of products I used to create this card. The Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper is perfect for some Thanks projects as well as Christmas and New Years! It goes perfectly with the stamp set!
