Wonderful White Thanksgiving Cards: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  Today I have two very simple cards to show you that are full of one of my favourite things…white space.  

When you create do you use a lot of white space?  Or do you like to fill up every square inch of the card front with colour?  I think I do both, just depends on my mood.  :)
When you're leaving a lot of white space on a card (or any project for that matter), the little details are really given a chance to shine.  On both of these cards I have little snippets of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies that might go unnoticed on another more 'busy' project, but here they're darling, and get noticed. 
Aren't those leaves a beautiful pop of colour?  They really make these cards showstoppers.  My wow on these cards is that I used glimmer paper and coloured it with my ink pads to make it extra fab.  Here's a quick video to see how I did that:

So are you ready bust out that Aqua Painter and make glimmer paper in every shade?!  You'll love how quick and easy this is.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my projects.  Now pop on over to my friend Barbara to see what she's created.
Happy Stampin'
