Thankful Silhouettes

Last week, i used the Tim Holtz Thankful Silhouettes set for our DEstress Friday m&t at Memories Live On. I love his new silhouettes sets. They make perfect sense when it comes to layering his stamps and having a strong image to really stand out.

The make & take i did can be found on the Memories Live On Facebook Page but I just couldn't stop myself there. I quickly made two cards using a similar layout but a few different materials.



On a piece of woodgrain patterned paper (previous kit from The Sampler), I stamped the word background from Thankful Silhouettes with the Butterscotch Acrylic Paint Dabber. While that dried, I used a couple Distress Stains to stamp a couple of the leaves on kraft tags and cut them out. To pull the whole card together, wrap a piece of thick twine around the lower portion of the card, knot it, and settle the two leaves underneath.


This card was a little more adventurous and liberal in the use of ink. I started with a piece of white cardstock and stamped the word background from Thankful Silhouettes with the Butterscotch Acrylic Paint Dabber. Once the paint has dried, using a craft mat, I blended ink from Distress Stains to get the background colors. While that dried, I used a couple Distress Stains to stamp a couple of the leaves on kraft tags and cut them out. To pull the whole card together, I used a bit of brown twill ribbon and a couple pins (both from previous kits from The Sampler) to off set the card a bit and settled the leaves under the ribbon.

there you go. the same stamp. two totally different cards. love them both!
