Pretty Cute Stamps October Challenge - Thank You!

It's time for the Pretty Cute Stamps October challenge, and this month the theme is Thank You!! Here in Canada we just had Thanksgiving on Monday and the US Thanksgiving is coming up for November - so what a great time to think of those loved ones and friends we want to thank. I know I usually get so busy that I mean to send out a thank you card to someone who has made my day special, and then I forget about it. This time I'm going to send my card to someone to let them know how much I appreciate them!

I used the Got Sushi? and Sushi Sentiments stamp sets to create this cute Thank You card! I was inspired by a card that Julie Ebersole made for the Hello Monday series and started by swiping some Distress Inks in Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistachio across a white cardstock background. I used some Dylusions Spray Mists to splat ink on the background after I heat embossed my sentiments (which both mean Thank You!) in gold.

I used the same ink pads to do a smooshing technique on my Ranger craft mat, which I spritzed with water and pressed a piece of watercolour paper into to create a background for my stamped sushi images. Then, I heat embossed with gold embossing powder before cutting out the bowl and spoon. I used some foam dots to pop up the spoon to give it some dimension.

Inside, I used some of that leftover watercoloured background paper to stamp Thank You on in gold embossing. Love that font!!

Here's a look at these cute stamp sets:
