SIP Challenge #126 - Thankful with My Monthly Hero from Hero Arts

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I hope you're ready for Thanksgiving because it's just 2 days away!  This week's Challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper is all about Thankful, Grateful, and Blessed.  I decided since I was finished with my Thanksgiving Cards that I would make a Thank You.  After all when you are Thankful for someone or something, you often say Thank you, right??  


Finally I used the My Monthly Hero Kit from July 2017.  I had previously only used one image and wasn't exactly sure how much I liked it.  Well ..... I LOVE it!  Some of the cutest images!  I just adore this little pitcher and the bouquet of flowers is just perfect in it.  I honestly had part of this card already made.  I have a drawer that I keep half made cards in.  Am I the only one that starts a card and then gets on a completely different track and ends up with partially made cards?  Well I do it a lot.  For this one I had the Early Espresso Base done with a layer of Old Olive embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.  I also had the strip of the Early Espresso Chevron DSP matted in Early Espresso Cardstock on the partially done card.  So what I did was add some of the light pink DSP matted on a scrap of Early Espresso.  I used my bone folder to pry open a section of the already adhered strip so I had room to tuck the new strip under the old one.  Once through, I adhered the right side down first.  I then added some Natural thread on the left side three times around and then tied it into a bow.  I used some Multi Medium Matt to adhere the bow down and then used some craft glue to adhere the left side of the new strip down.  I heat embossed my Thank You sentiment in White on the top of the Chevron Strip.  Both the flowers and the pot were first inked with Versamark and then with Soft Suede Ink onto Neenah Classic Solar White Cardstock.  I then clear embossed them.  I used my Stampin' Blends to color both the flowers, leaves and the planter and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I adhered them all with 3M Foam Tape.  Finally I decided that the planter needed grounding so I cut a small section of a White Doily and adhered it with Multi Medium Matt.  I finished it off with 3 Espresso Pretty Pink Posh Sequins!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
