Grateful for this Life

I love the great mix of sentiments in the September Stamp of the Month, Grateful for this Life. The bold sentiments would work great on your scrapbook pages or they easily stand alone on a card! This super simple card was created from the scrap pile. This panel of wood grain paper did not make the final cut on a previous creation, but it was too pretty to throw away! It found a new life with a gorgeous gold embossed sentiment.

I love how the wood grain texture still shows through the gold embossing. To create my card, I stamped Grateful in VersaMark ink and heat embossed in gold. The So Very and for your friendship were stamped in Espresso ink. Burlap twine and a few autumn sequins finish off the card. The completed panel was mounted with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.

This great set of 16 stamps is only available in the month of September. You can add this stamp to a qualifying order for only $5. VIP members can earn the set for free! Not yet a VIP member, you can find all the details here. You can find out more about the Stamp of the Month here.
