Expressing our Gratitude to someone is always a good thing to do.  This time of year makes me especially aware of that.  Today’s project is a perfect way to show someone they are appreciated.


Stampin' Up!, Well Defined, Blackberry Beauty, Cinnamon Cider, Jackie Beers


Stamp Set

This stamp set is aptly named Well Defined.  There are various holidays and similar sentiments that are one word and their definition.  These definitions make a wonderful clean and sweet card that is made quickly.  The Gratitude was chosen as a nod to Thanksgiving.  It is stamped using Cinnamon Cider Ink.  As I have stated before, this ink looks a bit metallic when paired with embossed or metallic paper.


To pair the Cinnamon Cider with this beautiful paper was a given.  This is the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series paper.  It has been difficult for Stampin’ Up! to keep in stock for that very reason.  But I looked and it is in stock now!  This paper is paired with Cinnamon Cider cardstock and a layer of Very Vanilla.

There was a piece of the DSP previously cut. So I  just needed a tiny adjustment.  That piece I cut off was only 1/4″.  Of course I couldn’t bring myself to throw it away.  As I was looking for a way to finish the card, I saw that little strip.  A bow is born!  All it took was a few folds, snips, and several glue dots.  This little bow should be called a glue dot bow!   I love the little different look to the card.
