I have used the Wheat Sheaf in two different ways on my card. I stamped the image onto a Gelli Plate that had tangerine and umber paint on it for my background paper. The other stamped image was colored with Copics.
For my repurpose items I found sticks, feathers and leaves to incorporate in my design! From an old dictionary I tore out the words and definitions to, "thankful, grateful, family, health and love"! IRL the green paper and orange pumpkin are toned down!!

I made a second card using the same technique with the Gelli Plate. The Wheat Sheaf is in the background along with the imprint of a wooden piece and coil brad. I took a gold Krylon pen and colored the chipboard and wooden pieces. Thankful was stamped in Memento Luxe, Rich Cocoa.

  1. So beautiful your cards are and the way you used dictionary words was inspiring. I absolutely love that idea!! :)

  2. Karen your card is beautiful! And I love how you added the dictionary definitions to your "bouquet" - what a clever idea!

  3. Oh, these are both gorgeous Karen, I know I say that all the time. Love all the extra items you added to these beauties.

  4. The backgrounds are both amazing! Wish I could hang out with you for a day and watch you in action! I love all the embellishments you added to both cards as well - they are a feast for the eyes - especially those gold accents on the second! YUMMM!

  5. I LOVE the dictionary pages that you incorporated. Great job!
