Today the Pit Crew Too is sharing more creations with the October set, Gobble Wobble. I wanted to make a pretty Thanksgiving card using the wheat image. I found that if I bend it just a bit on my clear block (don't you love how versatile clear stamps are??!) I could make a lovely Fall wreath!
I added a few popped up acorns from the set and then some tiny hearts from Avocado Type. The only thing needed was a sweet little gingham bow and a few pretty pearls added to the swirls. I kept the rest of the card pretty simple, just adding a tag for the sentiment.
You may notice that the sentiment tag is a bit longer than the actual stamp. I simply used a little trick I talked about in this post - I inked up most of the stamp - about the first 3/4 of the stamp- and stamped it. Then I cleaned the stamp and inked up the other side the same way - about 3/4 of it and stamped it matching up the lines. Now your tag is long enough for "Happy Thanksgiving!"
Thanks for coming by today! I hope you with check out the AA blog along with these other members of the Pit Crew for more inspiring work with this month's set!
