STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop

Hi there

Today, as part of the Design Team at Less is More, I'm delighted to be joining my teamies to take part in the Giving Thanks Blog Hop with STAMPlorations!

The lovely Shery has invited us to take part in this fabulous Blog Hop and Linky Party and is offering some wonderful prizes for commenting along the hop and participating in the linky party.

Clicking HERE will take you to the beginning of the hop.

For my thank you card I used the ARTplorations Christmas Reindeer stencil by STAMPlorations...

I adhered a strip of plaid patterned paper down one side of my card base.  Then on a panel of white cardstock I blended Distress Inks in co-ordinating colours through the deer stencil.  The sentiment was then stamped in black and the panel adhered flat over the card base and paper.

Materials used:
  • Patterned paper from stash
  • Stencil: ARTplorations by STAMPlorations - Christmas Reindeer
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Pumice Stone, Gathered Twigs, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - Many thanks

Challenge entries:

AAA Cards - CAS Game #77 - Thanks / Thanksgiving
Virginia's View - Challenge #25 - Stripes and Plaid
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Thanks / Thanksgiving

So, click here to join the hop and comment along the way for a chance to win prizes, and why not join in the linky party too.  Have fun!
