Good Thursday morning and welcome to the last day of the Impression Obsession Fall/Winter Release Blog Hop! We have some beautiful new stamps to share with you this week and there are going to be gift certificates given away. Check out the Impression Obsession Blog for all the details and be sure to leave comments on the team blog posts as you hop along. Good luck!
I stamped the hymn image on cream cardstock using versa and heat embossed using gold embossing powder. I like to use Ranger super fine embossing powders for intricate images like the hymn they create a much more detailed image. I applied mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the hymn on the card base.
I wanted to embellish the hymn with fall leaves since it is a hymn of Thanksgiving. I die cut several leaves from both sets of leaves and applied Peeled Paint, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade distress inks in patches using a mini applicator.
I applied versa to each leaf, applied clear embossing powder and heated.
I lightly formed the leaves with my fingers and attached them to the frame using glossy accents. The leaves add just enough color to add interest without taking away from the focal image of the hymn.
This is a gorgeous hymn of thanksgiving and is perfect to use for holiday card to send to family and friends. It was written by Dr. Henry Alford and was published in 1844.
Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God's own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.
All the world is God's own field,
Fruit unto His praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown
Unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade and then the ear,
Then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we
Wholesome grain and pure may be.
I hope you enjoy hopping along to see all the beautiful design team projects.
