Thankful for you

Hi everyone, my challenge this week at Cornish Heritage Farms is to create your own pattern paper.  With the large variety of stamps available at CHF, this is so easy to do.

I used the  Large Dots Backgrounder  stamp to create one background, stamping it in brown ink onto blue cardstock.  Since I used a textured cardstock, I was able to get a rustic look.  To create the second background I used a stamp from the Night Before Christmas  stamp set, and I just repeatedly stamped the phrase until the cardstock block was covered, again using brown ink on blue cardstock. 

Since the cardstock is textured, it is not so easy to read the stamped phrases.  But, as my intent was not to create a Christmas card, I was absolutely thrilled with the result.    So don't be afraid to use theme specific stamps in your every day stamping - you could be surprised at what you can create.  

The sentiment is from the amazing Script Essential Expressions  stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to stop by everyone's blog for more inspiration.
