Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving 2016...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today’s card is courtesy of the Card Concept. I loved their challenge image so I had to play along with a clean and layered card.

I started with a gingham background of soft suede. Then I die cut three sunflowers out of crushed curry and soft suede and added a few garden green leaves.

I adhered everything to the card front and added the sentiment.

I cut a piece of SU! happy haunting dsp at an angle and then added a border from tangelo twist. I stamped the sentiment (from a stamp I bought somewhere) on very vanilla and then backed it with another piece of tangelo twist. I layered everything up on a piece of soft suede cardstock.

Burnt Flamingos...

Hello all! Today’s card was made for two challenges – The Card Concept (inspiration) and RetroSketches (sketch).

I adhered some pattern paper at an angle onto the card base and then stamped the flamingo legs directly onto the pattern paper. After which I popped the flamingos up a bit on the pattern paper. I know that flamingos are traditionally pink but I think these may be on the burnt side of pink since I cut them from some cajun craze paper.

A little bling surrounds the flamingos and the sentiment was placed in the corner to help balance the card.

November Pals Blog Hop...

2015badge-2

Welcome to the Pals November Blog Hop, we’re so thankful you stopped by.  This month we’re showcasing projects that feature Stampin’ Up! Thanksgiving and “Thank You” products.  We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or you may have come from the previous blog on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you can enjoy each and every beautiful project.

 

Welcome! Today I made this fun clean and simple card for you! I started by using one of the Bohemian Borders to create the pattern on the very vanilla cardstock. I opted to use a bit of an ombre effect in my colors by using four dark inks and then four light inks. After stamping, I decided this card could use a bit of texture and instead of using an embossing folder, I pulled out my trusty simply scored scoring board and made a tiny grid pattern.

I spotlighted the sentiment made with the washi tape punch by adding a bit of Bermuda bay cardstock on the edges. A bit of silver cording and a mixture of rhinestones, candy dots, and enamel dots add a bit of bling to the card. Although I started off by using traditional Thanksgiving colors, the Bermuda bay brings a bit of an unexpected element to the card and gives it just the zing it needs!

Retro Rubber Challenge #27...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber! This time we have a color challenge for you – colors perfect for the fall season. Just use blackberry bliss, hello honey, old olive, and baked brown sugar or colors similar in your project.

I started off by stamping a distressed tag in old olive on white cardstock. I colored my image with blackberry bliss on the pot, old olive for the grass, and hello honey and more mustard on the sheaths of grain.

I added a bit of shading to the right of the tag and added the sentiment. A few bits of twine and a button and I was done!
