I don't know about you, but with all the paint splattering that has become so popular, I am always so nervous when I try to add that element to my cards. After spending so much time on designing a card, it can so easily be ruined with paint splatters gone wild! But thanks to an element in Karen Baker's Typically Teen set, we can get that same look with a stamp! Since we're all short on time at this time of year, I thought a simple but colorful card might be just the ticket for you! I stamped lots of splatters on this card, but using a stamp, you can do as much or as little as looks good to you!
I first stamped the splatters using 3 shades of distress inks to match the colors of the markers I used to color my turkey. Next I stamped the turkey roughly in the center of my card, along with the simple sentiment. And then I stamped the turkey again on a scrap, colored it with markers, fussy-cut it out, and popped it above my card. This is something your kids might even enjoy doing, it's so easy!
Here are the sets I used: Typically Teen:
and Happy Fall:
Both of these sets are on Lisa's Retiring Stamps Sale list! I'm so sad to see them go. And my sentiment comes from a current set, Golden Days:
And for take two, I had an extra cut-out of this turkey and so I thought I'd mix it with these papers from DCWV's Pumpkin Patch stack, and a Simon Says Stamp circle on a line die.
The sentiment is from our Fall Fibi & Lilly set, which is also on clearance:
We're wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving from our TCM family! Don't eat too much turkey!
