Give Thanks

Hello friends! Today is waltz day where all of us friends and fans of Waltzingmouse Stamps get together to share the love! If you are new to all of this, head over to the forum to get started and hopefully I'll see you on a waltz sometime soon! :) The theme this month is "gratitude/Thanksgiving" and boy do I have a lot to be thankful for these days!

I made this card using papers from my new Farmhouse collection from Crate Paper and my (new to me) Teeny Trees stamp set (why oh why did it take me so long to buy this one?!) :) I first stamped the large label from Very Vintage Labels 10 and cut it out. I stamped the trees and bent the sentiment around the curve of the label and stamped it. I stamped the leaves with my new Perfect Pearls using gold, copper, and bronze pearls - I think it really looks like fall! I finished the card with some beautiful brown ribbon trim, button brads, and some faux pearls.

Thanks for visiting today and I can't wait to hit the dance floor and see what you all made!

Supplies: Stamps - Teeny Trees, Vintage Labels 10 (WMS), DP - Farmhouse Collection (Crate Paper), Cardstock - Lunch Bag Kraft (TKO), Perfect Pearls, Dies - Labels 10 (Spellbinders), Pearls (Martha Stewart Crafts), Ink - Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango (SU!), Ribbon (La Stephanoise), Button Brads (SU!)

  1. This card is soooo pretty, Jen, love it!!! The colors are lovely and I love all the leaves! That tree set is my fave from WMS! Seeing it here with you, really makes me want to use it again!! I loved your Halloween hat as well!! What a perfect project!!! And you went to the pannekoekenboot in Groningen! Fun! Well, where we are going isn't on a boat, but just as much fun, for sure!! With red and white blocked tablecloths and a big pot with 'stroop' - you know that? Already looking forward to it!! :-D
    Hugs, Wendy

  15. I hate it that these waltzes always show stuff I don't have, but now must have! I love the frame you used, it is gorgeous with teeny trees and I also now need some of that perfect pearls, wow. This is such a pretty card, the give thanks word fit so nicely tucked in at the bottom of the trees.

  26. Hi Jen - awesome card. i love the trim and the the fun color tones of your tiny tree leaves - it's really like fall with the changing leave colors. I still haven't acquired that set either, and am wondering why i haven't added it yet to my collection either. It's quite diverse!
