I think you are going to love the look of this smackdown technique! Although these cards use 'Happy Thanksgiving', the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set has so many sentiments you can use to change up the message on this card for any occasion!

  1. Stamp the Maple leaf using Crumb cake ink in the center of your whisper white and smack it down repeatedly in the surrounding area to create a double image kind of look.
  2. Next Stamp the Oak leaf in Lost Lagoon ink on the top right and bottom left and smack it down repeatedly as well also creating the double image kind of look.
  3. Next stamp the next leaf on the top left and bottom right in Soft Sky ink and smack it down repeatedly in the surrounding area to create the same double image kind of look
  4. Next stamp the smallest leaf in Mint Macaron randomly to fill in the spots that are left, also smacking down repeatedly in the surrounding area creating the double image kind of look.
  5. Stamp Happy Thanksgiving- or any sentiment, randomly in Crumb Cake all over the card.
  6. Stamp Happy Thanksgiving-or any sentiment- in Lost Lagoon on Soft sky and punch with word window, Punch Washi label in lost Lagoon and adhere the two together and use a Stampin' Dimensional to add it to the card front.
