This weeks challenge on Created Byhand is to use the word Thanks or Thank You. Just in time I got my new stamps from Quietfire Design which included 4 different thank you stamps so I used one. This is the larger of 2 similar stamps and I love the little hearts that are in the letters. On this card after I stamped the word I used the Inkssential white pen to highlight those little hearts. The base layer was done with alcohol inks. Stamped fiddleheads along the bottom. Added the mulberry paper and stamped the word and the bird on it. Added holes in the upper left corner using the Tim Holtz ruler and an awl. Wrapped the piece in red string and tied on a heart charm, also from Quietfire Design. Added a sequin flower to the upper left corner... coated it with Matte Accents so it wasn't to shiny and added a punched 1/8" circle to the center.
Collage image and stamps used on this atc are from Quietfire Design. I stamped the flourishes with Distress Ink vintage photo and drew on the white lines and dots with the Inkssential white pen. Cut out the collage image with deckle scissors, edged it with vintage photo ink and layered as shown. The gold "brads" are stickers.
This atc uses new Thanksgiving images from Paper Imagery Designs and the music stamp is a Tim Holtz, stamped with Distress Ink vintage photo. Inkssential white pen was used for the "stitching".

This atc again uses a piece from the same background paper as the last atc I uploaded. The collage image (Sarah) is from Paper Imagery Designs. Leaf is punched from a scrap of the paper and layered on top of the image. Letters added to spell "fall".
I forgot to mention that the most fabulous thing about this background paper is the slight shimmer you get from the glitter spray as you tip the paper. It reminds me of looking at a tree when the sun is shining bright but there is still dew on the leaves that catch that sunlight and sparkle.
These next two cards were published in the Fall 2008 issue of Just Cards and all stamps are from Quietfire Design.
This one was in the October 2008 issue of Vamp Stamp News. Stamps are from Quietfire Design.
And this last one was published in the Decembe 2008 issue of Scrap and Stamp Arts. The leaf is from Stubby Stampers and the quote is from Quietfire Design.
