Happy Thursday and happy November!
Would you like the chance to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate just in time for the holidays? Play along in the Thanksgiving Wish challenge! It's easy, just use IO stamps/dies and create! You don't need a blog to play. All the guidelines can be found on the IO Blog.

Thanksgiving Wishes from the IO girls!

The Patchwork Leaves were die cut and then stamped with Mini Patterns 1 and Mini Patterns 2. I love the detailed stitching on the leaves and acorn. 
For the stamping I used ink that was a little darker that the color of the card stock. There are three different patterns to a set and there are four different sets. This is a great way to get pattern paper the perfect color for your design!
Give Thanks was die cut out of the natural Neenah. It was die cut again in the brown. This was inlaid back into the negative area on the Neenah.

Inside I have used a quote that is in the Be Grateful cling set.
I trimmed the bottom by stamping the Leafy Border. This is a great stamp to use on the outside of envelopes.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Beautiful card and I love the stamp sentiment!

  2. Thanks you for the idea of using plaid. It is absolutely brilliant and your card is beautiful.
    Have a blessed holiday season.

  3. Karen, your cards are exquisitely gorgeous, just like you! I love all of your cards and are simply AMAZING!!!

  4. Fun and funky! I really like how you used the Mini Patterns stamp sets to create your own patterned paper!

  5. All the little details on your cards, like the bow on this one are beautifully executed.
