Today’s project is more than just a gratitude sampler. Each element can be used as a card front as well. I call that a two-for, two projects in one.

Right off the bat, you’ve got to treat yourself to a pack or two of the gorgeous Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper. I think it is my favorite Fall inspired paper EVER!! Each block in my gratitude sampler showcases the same color palette, drawn from the beautiful DSP. Block #1 could easily be a thank you or thinking of you card front.

The beautiful Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack made creating all the elements in the blocks a breeze. I’ve used frames from the pack in both block 1 and 2. By using the sunflower die, I’ve created another element you could use for either a tag, card or to decorate a gift bag.

Ready for block #3? If you’ve been following me, you know I’m a nature girl. I just love those Intricate Leaves dies. They sure do anchor the design on this block.

Time to do some coloring with our blends. The Pretty Pumpkins stamp set has so many beautiful images. I’ve used the pumpkin trio in block #4.

Last but not least, I knew I wanted to incorporate that detailed pumpkin die cut. Because I backed the DSP with adhesive sheets it made adhering it to the gold shimmer vellum quick and easy.
