Happy Thanksgiving From Melanie Stamps!

Hi Friends,

I decided instead of a Wednesday Sketch post that I would create a group of Thanksgiving cards which I have mailed off to my bible study group of ladies. I hope they receive them and knows how much I am thankful for them. Here are a couple in progress photos I took along the design process.

I completely forgot to take light box photos of these because I was so motivated to create them for my bible study group. I had them filled out, in their sealed envelope, with postage before I realized I did not take individual photos of them. Luckily I did snap a few shots during the creative process. I had colored all of the stamped images using the wonderful Stampin’ Blends markers. If you like the look of Alcohol markers but can’t decide on which color combos to purchase or shy away because the expense I have a solution for you. Grab the Blends Combo sets of alcohol markers that Stampin’ Up! sells. They are already in a combo that will blend well together so no need to worry about which ones work together. If you have questions abut them never hesitate to contact me.


Here is a quick tip that I learned from Patty Bennett. When making multiple cards at once tie all your bows and attach each to a glue dot on the roll. Then when you need a bow it is sitting there ready to go.


Here is the final product. I loved the look of these tiny bows. I think this trim is my favorite this fall. It is so easy to work with.

I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful day. I will be thinking of my mama in heaven as this will be my first Thanksgiving without her. I know she is looking down on me and is close to my heart. To the families who have lost their loved ones this year not just from old age but also from the Covid 19 pandemic… please know you are all in my prayers.

Crafty Love, Melanie
