So Thankful

Good Saturday Morning!
Thought I'd share some cards I made using my new Paper Clippings die
from PapertreyInk.
I fell in love with the sweet bold sentiment that says it all!

Yesterday was my day to play in the craft room.
Don't you love days where all the time is yours?

Did a bunch of colorful backgrounds with Ken Oliver's Color Bursts.

Have you tried them?
Powdery form coming out, and with a spritz of water, the color explodes!
(Better have a box handy, to contain the explosion!)
I used watercolor card stock, let it dry thoroughly, then die cut
my image.

You really never know what you're going to get as far as color placement,
but you do have a bit of leeway when placing your die to cut. 
And that's the fun!

This explosion of color had to have a black bg!
You might notice, each of the die cuts is backed with a
contrasting color. You don't have to double up, but I like the effect 
and stability doubling the cut gives.

This blue with green I left intact and just added my die cut in white.

So many left over, for more projects!

All cardstocks (with the exception of the watercolor card stock) PTI.
PTI: Autumn Abundance & Twig Wreath Pattern Paper.
Cardstocks: PTI Kraft, Stormy Sea & Terracotta Clay.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hope it's crafty!
