Altenew Educators “Giving Thanks” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

when you say or feel “thank you” to someone, it’s a small moment with deep emotions caries confirmation of the wonderful truth, that we all depend on each other.

Telling a real people who are just kinds, working hard, hoping for a good life, worrying about the people they love, extending themselves in their jobs, or care about others, about population or about civilization. Sending them this message.. You should feel seen and deeply appreciated.

You can’t possibly say thank you to everything you’re given. No one can. So, when you do feel or say thanks, it’s a puzzle piece of your appreciation for the larger whole, that joined you with that whole. And it will ends up making you happy.

its something that I should be so grateful to God that he creates me feeling this amazing feeling. That I should appreciate all kind acts and words. And be grateful for the people who helps and cares about other.

Let me thank you all in advance for joining me in this post.. You are so kind.. I deeply appreciate your time..

I die cut the thanks with white glittered foam using altenew signature words die Over the heart part and I place this sentence from altenew stitched rose stamp set


For my third creation..I made this thankful note to my self..

I love mixed media alot. I used gesso first to preaper the paper to accept coloring over it. Then I used Altenew watercolor pan to color on the back ground. I left it to dry..

I used Altenew wild hibiscus to stamped the flower and the leaf over a book paper. I colored them with Altenew 36 watercolor pan as well.

Returning back to the background. I add some mini detilas with the mini stamp from altenew watercolor dots stamp, and I used white embossing past and stencil over some area in the background.

I placed the flower and the leaf with some dimensions over this busy happy background.

I Die cut thankful from altenew fine alphabet dies with a black card stock to create a nice contrast.

    The inns over the Yupo paper made such a pretty rainbow-y blend. I really like the white embossed flower with the shimmer powder. The watercolor paint over the gesso with the flower is very striking. The flower colored with the watercolor markers looks so pretty with the light colored frame. I love the rainbow of leaves on the thanks card. The last card has such a pretty embossed blue circle background. Very pretty cards.
