Who says you need to use traditional Fall colors with Fall themed sets? This card was made using the Count My Blessings stamp set, the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle, and one itty, bitty die from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits! An Aquapainter was used to make the watercolored background on Watercolor Paper using Island Indigo ink. I then stamped the Thinking of You sentiment in Night of Navy, and ran it through the Big Shot using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies. I cut out the different leaves using dies from both the Patterned Pumpkins dies (which are part of the Pick a Pumpkin bundle, but can also be purchased separately) and the Bouquet Bunch Framelits. (It’s hard to tell, but the dark blue leaves are also stamped with a stamp from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set!) I then assembled the card, adhered the sentiment piece with Dimensionals for a little extra detail, and embellished with a few pearls. Colors are Island Indigo, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, and Whisper White!

Thoughts and Prayers is one of the first stamp sets I bought when I became a demonstrator! I love the simplicity of the tree and floral images, as well as the beautiful sentiments! (The sentiment on this card is actually not from the Thoughts & Prayers set though. It’s from the So Many Shells set!) I have used Thoughts & Prayers for many, many occasions, including birthdays, weddings, Mother’s Day, friendship, thank yous, and of course, sympathy cards. This set comes in both clear mount and wood mount, and would make a great addition to your collection!
To make this card, I cut an extra top layer, then used a square from the Layering Squares Thinlits to make a “mask”. This mask was placed over the final top layer, so that the whole layer was covered except for the square that had been cut out. I then used a Stampin’ Sponge to sponge Crumb Cake ink all inside the square to make the background behind the tree. Once it was completely filled in, I removed the mask, stamped the tree and sentiment both in Soft Suede ink, and then added Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to the leaves of the tree!
