Thanks with Stampin’ Up!’s Soft Seedlings

Yesterday I shared a super-shiny “You are amazing” card with three glimmer papers (you can see that card here). While I had the Amazing Thanks Dies pulled out, I decided to make s sweet-and-simple thank you card that can be used for a Thanksgiving card or a sweet thank you card. Here’s my card:

Soft Seedlings, Amazing Thanks Dies, Stampin Up!, Brian King

It’s not often I made a card as simple as this, but that’s what made is such a challenge for me. I was all set to mount the focal panel on a Thick Basic White card base (making it even more off-brand for me), but I HAD TO mount it on Evening Evergreen. I’m happy with that decision.

My card features a gorgeous leaf image from Stampin’ Up!’s Soft Seedlings stamp set – I love this set so much. The images and beautiful sentiments in this set are perfect for this time of year when the leaves are starting to turn. Here’s a look at this set:

Soft Seedlings, Stampin Up!, 159905This image looks lovely on a Basic White base that’s surrounded by a Basic White frame, and I knew the sentiment would look great across the leaves. I played around with several ways to add a little Evening Evergreen to the cardfront before realizing what a wonderful accent I could add with the water spots from the Quiet Meadow stamp set. I inked up the image with Evening Evergreen ink and stamped it off once before stamping on my card front. Here’s a closer look:

If you don’t yet have the Amazing Thanks Dies (I told you yesterday that you need to order them), this is a perfect time to add them to your cart. Here’s a look at these amazing dies:

Crushed Curry is a classic beauty for Autumn projects – we’ve always reached for Crushed Curry this time of year. When paired with Evening Evergreen, a 2022-2024 In Color, the richness of Crushed Curry is softened and brightened a little bit. If you like this combination as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
