Grateful Hearts | Art Impressions

Happy Monday my friends!  I'm over on the Art Impressions blog today with this card that features the so sweet Grateful Hearts stamp set.

I stamped the images in Copic safe ink and colored them with the markers listed below.  I fussy cut them and set them aside to build the scene.  For this card, I thought I'd change up the typical autumn color scheme and leave out any orange pumpkins.  I love the white pumpkins that I see in stores, so those were the inspiration for the ones on my card.  Here are the steps for the rest of the card:
  • I used a cloud stencil to ink Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink with a blending brush for the clouds.
  • I inked a scrap piece of paper with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides.  Then I die cut that with a grass border die.
  • I used a heart die to cut the opening in the center of a 5" square piece of blue card stock.  I added stitching lines with a white gel pen and then I put foam tape on the back.
  • I positioned the stenciled clouds and grass die cut onto a 5-½" square top-folding card base.  I made sure these were positioned correctly before glueing them down.
  • I then adhered the blue piece on top.

Next I added some thin foam tape to the back of the mice.  I positioned the pumpkins and adhered with glue.  I stamped the sentiment onto a banner die and added it to my card. To finish it off, I added a few clear hearts here and there.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fun and crafty week!
