Use Your Stash ~ Colors of Thanksgiving

Hi there and welcome to the November Use Your Stash Blog Hop! Do you have tons of crafting supplies in your stash? Are they mostly sitting there unused or hardly used? Here is a blog hop inspiring you to grab some of those supplies just waiting for you to notice them and create something beautiful!

If you've come from Jen Armstrong's blog you're on the right track. Just click each link to hop over to the next blog in the hop. 

My card has some supplies I haven't used in a while. I feel I just squeaked in with a fall type card because soon everything will be turning to Christmas cards and decor! To get the fall colors look on the leaves I used a technique called stamp rolling. Ink your stamp in the lighter color ink and then just roll the edges of the inked stamp on a darker color ink then stamp! You can get some really beautiful fall leaves this way. I also stamped some ink blots in the background along with the sentiment. Some of the leaves are popped with the thin 3D Foam to give some depth.

All products are Close To My Heart: (click for image)
