It's Day 3 of Release Week at Taylored Expressions and I have a lovely set to share today and it's here just in time to get ready for Fall and Thanksgiving! It's called Thankful and comes with a plethora of sweet fall and harvest images, as well as sentiments to help us count our blessings -- for my card today, I chose to use the sunflowers (my favorite flower!) This set was the brilliant idea of our Design Team Coordinator, Jami Sibley, and illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Lasting Impressions line.
I made a "window" card today by first masking and stamping multiple sunflowers and coloring them in. Next, I carefully trimmed around the tops of the blooms, also trimming a window frame up and around. This I popped up over the gorgeous sentiment, which I stamped in white, along with another sunflower image. I finished off with just a bit of rustic twine -- I have a lot to be thankful for and I just love this season!
