The Stamp Review Crew: Truly Grateful Edition

Wow, it is already the third Monday of the month, so you know what that means?  It's time for another edition of the Stamp Review Crew!  This week we are working with one of my favorite stamp sets from last year's Holiday Catalog, Truly Grateful.  I am a sucker for fall images and colors, and couldn't wait to make a project for this challenge.  My good friend Mandy was over to work on some Project Life scrapbook pages, and she helped me out with some inspiration for my background. I love how it turned out!
That background stamp is probably my favorite stamp in the set. I just love those chevrons!  The little pearls are colored with Blendabilities. Coloring embellishments has been so much fun with the Blendabilities.  I love the pop of color it adds!  

Thanks for stopping by to visit. If you are continuing on through the hop, you won't want to miss the FABULOUS Tanya's project.  She is sure to have something creative and amazing for you to see! Or if you are working backwards, make sure you stop by the oh so TALENTED Holly's blog to see what she has for us this week!  Of course, if you are completely lost, like I tend to be most of the time lol, you can see the entire blog roll at the bottom.  See you next time!

  1. Oh, so pretty! I love the 4 color background…it's so attractive. It took a lot of patience to trim out that wheat bundle and then tie it up with the twine. Wonderful card.

  2. I love it! The four fabulous colors of chevron woodgrain, the off center sentiment, the juicy bow, and the colored pearls! All of it is wonderful :)

  3. Gorgeous card, Shana! I love your multicolored background!

  4. What a fun background! I love the mixture of colors.

  5. I love how your background turned out too! And I have only dreamed of fussy cutting the wheat bundle. Hats off!

  6. Shana this is just gorgeous!! I love how you did different colors on the background. That is an awesome idea that I will have to case!

  7. I agree with Mike about cutting the wheat bundle. You did it beautifully! I love the multi-layered twine bow.

  8. Really different - love the colors and that the background is split up...the cluster of wheat seems to float against the background - wonderful!
