My first Thanksgiving card

I have made my first Thanksgiving card with Multi-step Kitchen Sink Stamps.

I have used Multi-step Harvest set, it is great to create scenes and very easy to stamp. I love the fonts used for the sentiments.

The background grid has been stamped with Versamark Dazzle Champagne on Gina K Sweetcorn cardstock. For the grid I used the Off Beat Backgrounds set from Waltzingmouse Stamps.


Stamps: Multi-step Harvest (Kitchen Sink Stamps), Off Beat Backgrounds (Waltzingmouse Stamps)

Ink: I have used only Tsukineko Inks (Memento, Versafine, Versamark)

Accessories: Nestabilities (label 8), Gina K Sweetcorn cardstock, dimension dots for a 3-d effect.

I used the same sketch as before (see this post).
