|Hello Friends, How are you today? I am super excited & honored to be participating in|
"The Simon Says Stamp Gratitude Blog Hop AND Charity Donation".
To start at the beginning of the hop go to Simon's blog here. If you are arriving from the lovely & creative Sarah Moerman's blog you are in the right place.
During this season of giving thanks I can't think of a better way to share a few of the things that I am grateful for besides health, family, friends and all that. Well frankly I am grateful for all of you that frequent my blog. I am also thankful for the internet which connects us all in this wonderful way around the world. Such a great way to share, blog, be inspired, pin, shop etc. I look forward to hearing what you are grateful for :)
Last year I made these place cards for Thanksgiving and this year I wanted to make some REUSABLE place cards.
|Reusable place cards appealed to me so I set out to design some. With an acetate strip you can remove the names and use year after year. Switch up the colors and make some for Christmas or the New Year. |
Just hand write in each name after the "thankful for you" as you see in the place card laying down.
Die cut some card stock with this exclusive die from Simon Says Stamp.
Trace around the cut edges with a pencil leaving a margin.
|Stamp and emboss this sticky back canvas with clear or white embossing powder using the Hero Arts stamp called "Lotus Background".|
|Use Tea Dye stain on your embossed canvas. Watch it come to life.|
|Add some Walnut Distress ink directly on top.... pad to paper/ canvas.|
|Spray with Perfect Pearls. Love the shine and set aside to dry.|
|Trace with a pencil the outside of this die from Spellbinders from some white card stock. This will give you the a nice white edge. Adhere the canvas onto the traced card stock.|
|Stamp your sentiment on a white strip of paper. Cut some acetate the same size to layer on top of the white strip. Add a tiny dot of Glossy Accents to adhere the acetate. Place a gem on top so you won't see it. Using acetate allows you to re- use your place cards each year. Use a Copic marker to write the names in and after Thanksgiving remove the names with this.|
