Day 2 New Product Blog Hop

Today I am sharing a card made with NEW Pathfinding paper; NEW Hostess stamp and another NEW stamp set. So many NEW things and so little time to play with them all!
I have many favourite things and leaves are one of them. For a few years I would collect leaves and make prints from them. I did this after watching a PBS show about Gyotaku, the traditional method of Japanese fish printing. I did actually try the fish method to a huge, smelly mess.....much to my husband's chagrin. He was much happier when I moved on to leaves!

So, back to my card! I chose this lovely pattern paper because it features our new Glacier colour and Chocolate. I added Bronze Shimmer Trim to either sides of the border. Both the main patterned paper and the border are matted with Chocolate cardstock.

I stamped with these sweet leaves from NEW stamp set, Thankful Heart, on Autumn Terracotta cardstock in coordinating ink. The lovely wreath and all of the parts within, are also from a NEW set, called Thanksgiving Wreath. It is a Hostess Reward stamp set and is stamped with Olive; Lagoon; and Chocolate inks. I coloured the wreath in with our NEW Shin Han Markers. I also elevated the center part and sentiment with our fabulous NEW thin foam tape.

All supplies are Close To My Heart.

  1. So pretty. One of my favorite papers in this book is that blue Pathfinding paper.

  2. I agree with Cassaandra, the blue paper is so versatile.
    nice work!

  3. Nancy - My kids did the fish prints in elementary school and I helped once (yes, it is stinky even with fresh salmon and kind of weird painting a fish!). Love the coloring you did with this hostess stamp and the random stamped paper you made too! Thanks for sharing this fall cutie!

  4. I really like the Glacier and Chocolate together - so cute!
