Give Thanks for JAI #337

Happy Friday and welcome! Today, Spring has become Summer with our first 30 degree day in Melbourne since last Autumn. So lovely to see clear blue skies and finally feel a bit of heat :-)

And we have a great NEW challenge for you at Just Add Ink this week. Kim has suggested a challenge where you can Just Choose Two - of three options - to use in your paper crafting this week. Our lovely and talented design team have all created fabulous projects to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look.

For my card, I chose Die Cuts and Designer Paper. I needed another thank you card and wanted to use the saying "give thanks" and the rest came from there.  The leaves from Rose Garden are cut using Copper Foil - as is the "thanks" from the Hello You Framelits. And I've paper pieced the inserts from the different autumnal DSP colours...not that I am wishing Summer away btw, just the colours looked better with the lovely Copper :-)
The background stamping is an ombre effect created by simply stamping the lowest image at full strength and stamping off each time above.

Card stock: Whisper White (thick and standard), Copper Foil
Designer Series Paper: Rich Regals Stack (Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Calypso Coral)
Inks: Black Archival, Garden Green
Stamps: Labeller Alphabet, Timeless Textures
Accessories: Big Shot, Rose Garden Thinlits, Hello You Framelits, Metallic Sequins, Snail, Dimensionals, and Fine Tip Glue Pen

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink  and see the wonderful cards our design team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create this week too :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
