Grateful Heart for The Paper Players

 Thanksgiving will  soon be happening, have you bought your turkeys yet, my US friends? This is the time of year when I especially need to cultivate a calm and grateful heart. 

Stamping always calms and refreshes me, and a new challenge for The Paper Players #616 fits right in with the gratefulness attitude. Our lovely Claire wants us to create projects with a Give Thanks theme. 

I had the brand new to me Thankful Heart stencil, stamps and dies from The Greetery just waiting for today's card. 

The stencil makes it so easy to sponge an ombre shading to the sentiment. I kept this very simple, using the nesting arched dies to create the card base in Baked Brown Sugar (SU) and arranging the inked die cuts along the panel bottom. 

Both the sentiment and the white panel are popped up with craft foam and dimensionals. Everyone is welcome to play along, hope you will join us at The Paper Players!

I'm grateful for many blessings, thanks to you  for being one of them! I really appreciate your visit today. Have a great week. 

Be yourself

          Have delight in your craft 

               Make something beautiful!

I find this very appealing and sweet, Cindy. When I see one of your cards in the Feedly thumbnail I know I'm going to love it. I'm also happy to see your card in the Double D gallery. Thank you for sharing with us there!

This is so fun! I love the little pumpkins and all the shading you created as well! Fun to have a shaped card too...I always love what you create!

Beautiful, Cindy! I love that arched shape--I've seen houses with doors shaped like that and I just love it. I like the ombre effect on your sentiment; I used to do that a lot with colored pencils when I hand-drew titles for my scrapbook pages many years ago. Now I'm lazy and I use stamps :)

Jennie Maier said...

Cindy, the arched shape is so unique! Such pretty coloring too!

The arched shape makes for such a unique and eye-catching card, Cindy! The pumpkins and corn stalks are so perfect for a Thanksgiving card. Love it! Have a wonderful weekend!

I love that you changed things up with your arched shaped card Cindy - and your corn and pumpkins are a perfect fit for a thankful theme. So pretty!

Cindy, you showcased this set beautifully and I love that you made the card an arched one. I really do need to do that!
