Basket of Wishes

Another beautiful stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Basket of Wishes. Because it has the letter "W" as part of the title I thought I would enter once again into the Joy of sets challenge blog.

Here in Canada our Thanksgiving will be coming up on Monday, Oct 9th. Every year my sister hosts our Thanksgiving meal, and every year I make her a thank you card which she proudly displays on her beautiful antique hutch, how great is that!

here is this year's card

Lately, I am getting into using either my blender pen or my aqua painters! Here I used my blender pen along with an assortment of inkpads. It has been a few days since I made this card and I have misplaced the paper which I wrote down all my colours to share with you. I can tell you that I used Basic Black cardstock for the card base and the mat which the basket is stamped on is a piece of shimmery white cardstock love this paper! it works so well for using my aqua painters on. I used the square from the stitched shaped framelits to cut out the image. I then embossed a piece of old olive cardstock using the Hexagon textured impressions folder. As you can see I used the burlap ribbon and our new faceted gems in gold. The sentiment comes from one of our newer sets called Painted Harvest love this new stamp set!

Hope you enjoyed your time here.

HAPPY  THANKSGIVING! to all my Canadian friends out there. Stay safe everyone!
