bountiful blessings

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s Canadian Thanksgiving today and I’m so excited to be spending the day with my family, cooking pie and turkey and just enjoying all my blessings. I hope today is a day of blessing for you to, even if it’s not Thanksgiving where you are. Every day is a good day to count your blessings.

This card uses the Autumn Greetings Market Street Stamps set and be working a little masking magic, I’ve turned the sweet pumpkin into a lovely festive container for the fall flower bouquet.

Eclipse Tape is my favorite product for masking. It really can’t be beat for precision. To mask this little arrangement I first stamped the flowers and only inked up the blossoms and not the stems. After stamping the flowers, I restamped them onto the masking tape and carefully cut out the image. The more care you take in precision cutting, the better and cleaner your masking will appear. Cover up the flower image with the cut out masking tape and then stamp the pumpkin. I’ve then colored the image with my Copic Markers to finish it off.

Here’s the Copic Marker colors that I used.

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!
