A Craft Dash Thanks

Hiya peeps!

How is your day going?  Have you been able to get crafty?  I sure hope so!  I had a moment last night to make a little something for the latest 10 minute Craft Dash over at Paulina's blog.  I sure do love this challenge, especially when I am sorta in a hurry.  ;0) My time wasn't the greatest, but I did come in under 10...like 9 min. 25 sec. 

So, the colors she chose are some of my favs, and I used a couple of stamp sets that you can find in the i {heart} papers store.  The first is Leafy Greens from Paper Smooches.  Oh my, do I love those big solid leaves.  I stamped them in Hero Arts Butterbar, Mint Julep and Soft Brown around my white cardstock panel.  I didn't really have a good aqua dye ink...hm.

I then took the Thanks from Chit Chat and added a bit of brown Copic marker to color them in with a bit of a gradient.  To finish it off, I adhered it to a Kraft card base, and added a few Studio Calico wood print sequins.  Now, I must confess, after I stopped the timer, I went back with a clear Spica glitter pen and added a bit of shimmer to the Thanks.  You can't see it very well in the pic.

Here is the graphic:

  1. Beautiful card, Lindsay! I like your Mint Julip on the leaves. But what really excited me are those gradient letters. AWESOME!

  3. I love the way you colored in the sentiment, and that bright orange leaf just calls your attention to it.

  4. Fab card! Love how you colored the sentiment!


  5. Superb :) love the falling leaves and the colors :)

  6. Fabulous card, Lindsay! I love it!
    I especially love those wooden sequins.... I ordered them online and then never shipped them out to me. Now, they're all out of stock. Sigh....
    Thanks so much for playing along with the 10 Minute Craft Dash!

  7. Love this! Gorgeous use of that leaf set - I have it and don't use it often - this is super inspiring! And those wooden sequins - swoon! Saw you're from North Canton - I'm in Canton for the month visiting my parents - always up for some crafty time :-) Thanks for joining us at the 10 MInute Craft Dash!

  8. This is really pretty!! Love all the stamped leafs!!

  9. WOW, love this card. Great stamping job and the lines on the sequins looks like woodgrain. Thanks for playing along with us in the 10 Minute Craft Dash and hope to see you again.

  10. Very pretty, I love those wood print sequins! TFS
