Continuing to be Thankful… with the Stampin’ Up So Very Much Stamp Set

Only in New England would I be walking around with short sleeves and my capri leggings on today (in the house, but still!) and then expecting up to a foot of snow in a blizzard tomorrow, right?

I’m going to share a few of the cards that I made with this set over the next few days. This first one is a little different. I used my Layering Squares Framelits to cut out a window in a scrap piece of paper. Then I used the negative piece to sponge Crumb Cake ink in the square cut out that was left behind. I then just simply stamped the “Thank you sentiment using Early Espresso ink. I added a small piece of the dapper denim Washi tape from the Moroccan Designer washi tape to the bottom edge of the inked square. I then took a tiny strip of gold foil cardstock and snipped “banner” ends in each side. Finally, I punched out two Delightful Dijon
