Saturday Blog Hop: Gratitude

Updated: May 11, 2023

Hello! Thanks for joining us on the Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop! The theme for this week is Gratitude. It's always good to take some time to think about the things you are grateful for. I find that it always brings me some much needed perspective. One thing I'm thankful for is being a part of the Stampin' Up! community (and this sweet little blog hop family!). Being creative can be a simple way to bring joy into my days and I don't know what I would do without it!

My card this week features the Nature's Prints Bundle, which is so beautiful and I really haven't used it much yet. The card base is Sahara Sand, then there is a Basic White layer framing this patterned paper from the He's the Man Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I cut out one wreath in Sahara Sand and one in Soft Succulent, which I popped up a bit using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. The rest is pretty simple. The sentiment comes from the Nature's Prints Stamp Set, was heat embossed in white on Evening Evergreen and cut out with the coordinating die from this set. Then, I added in some linen thread, Sahara Sand ribbon and Elegant Faceted Gems. I think it turned out quite lovely!
