Thank You For Seeing Me Through...

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is another that has been created with the Me = Grateful stamp set from Stampin' Up! This time I've teamed it with the all new, amazing Brick Wall TIEF and the extremely versatile stamp set, Sprinkles of Life.

The card is dedicated to each and every one of my Stampin' Sisters for all their support over the last 12 months. Each of them and indeed each of you, my readers and friends, have seen me through some dark days and have definitely brightened the rest...

Card: Whisper White and Crumb Cake
Ink: Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush
Markers: Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush Stampin' Write (from 2015-2017 In Color pack
Stamp sets: Me = Grateful and Sprinkles of Life
Tools: Brick Wall TIEF, Stamping Sponges and Craft Knife
Adhesive: Stampin' Dimensionals

I started by embossing the Whisper White card with the Brick Wall TIEF, then using the writing nib of the Tip Top Taupe Stampin' Write marker doodled in the mortar between the bricks, before sponging with Crumb Cake ink.

Using a craft knife, carefully cut away enough bricks for the first part of the sentiment, and stamp the second onto the wall using Watermelon Wonder ink.

Stamp the stems in Cucumber Crush ink and color in the leaves with the matching Stampin' Write marker. Add the flowers in the same way with Watermelon Wonder ink and marker.

Lay the wall panel over the folded Crumb Cake card base and carefully stamp the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder ink through the aperture. Attach the panel to the base with Stampin' Dimensionals
