I decided to venture outside my usual box and played with a brand new (to me) challenge called Addicted to Stamps. The design team is uber talented and they have so many wonderful cards to get your mojo flowing! The current theme is "Autumn Colors" and it was perfect to get a card done for pastor appreciation Sunday that's coming up soon.
I started by stenciling this leafy background with Antique Linen and Bundled Sage distress oxide inks. I then added some tendrils with Forest Moss distress oxide ink and popped up a pumpkin (Spiced Marmalade) and some leaves (Peeled Paint) from Simon Says Stamp's Ornate Leaves stamp set. It required fussy cutting which reminds me I need to check their store to see if they have matching dies. I thought this verse from Jeremiah 17:7 - a Plain Jane stamp from the former Verve store - would be perfect for our pastor!
So...if you attend a church...please remember the pastor during this month which is nationally recognized as pastor appreciation month! They have a difficult and often underappreciated job!
