Giving Thanks at OSAAT

OSAAT November Prize Pack
This fortnight at One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT), our theme is Anything Goes with Giving Thanks

StitchyBear's Digi Outlet has hundreds of digital products from many wonderful artists. Even if you don't use a store image, you'll still be in the drawing to win the super-duper November prize pack.

I used Sunflower by Barbara Jensen to make this relatively simple Thank-you card:


I also had fun using this image last year for a notch-swing card. In fact, I think I used papers from the same Graphic 45 collection. It was definitely time-consuming to fussy-cut, but so worth it. The vase is fussy-cut from a FlowerSoft decoupage sheet, and the patterned papers are from Graphic 45.

The tag die & matching stamp are from a Cuttlebug set. I cut it from a pre-embossed cardstock, stamped it with Memento ink, and edged it with the same Copic I used for all the edging (E07). I tied the tag to the vase with a stitched green ribbon.

Inspiration/Challenges:
  1. Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge: Thank You + Stash (I've had these papers for years, and the vase cut-out is probably 3 years old!)
  2. Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper November Challenge: Patterned Paper (2nd entry)
  3. Crafting By Designs: Give thanks
  4. Dream it Up: Thankful and Thoughtful
  5. Hambo Hoedown: Thank you card
  6. QKR Stampede #113: I'm Thankful For
  7. Quick Quotes November Challenge: Gratitude
  8. Simply Create Too Challenge #74: Thanksgiving / Thank You
  9. The Stamping Boutique Challenge #43: Thankful


Thank you for visiting, and hope you'll join us at One Stitch at a Time,
