Now that the turkey’s been carved and dinner’s been eaten, I have a card for the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT455). Since it was a picture of a cornucopia I’m using this fall fence w/ pumpkins.
I colored the image w/ Copics and die cut w/ a square. The brown layer was die cut w/ a leaf square and I used the Copics to color each leaf behind the open die on the background. For the punched pumpkins across the bottom, I colored the area behind them orange and used bands of fall colors below them before stamping the greeting.The finished card is 4.25 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

Today’s CAS (Clean & Simple) Challenge CAS248 is to make a Holiday Card…Fall-Dec holidays. I needed one more Thanksgiving card, so that’s the holiday I chose. I colored everything w/ Copics and the only slightly non-CAS thing I did was fussy cut the turkey. But I’m a super quick fussy cutter, so it doesn’t slow me down. I cut around the very top of of the pumpkin so I could put the oval around it and all I did was doodle pretty quickly around the border. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! You still have a few days to enter the DRS Thursday Challenge. This week…Star Spangled Christmas!

A big Congrats to Julie, the newest Featured Stamper! Wow, what ginormous & beautiful gallery! I chose THIS card to case. I kept the colors and basic layout, but I used a die cut as my main element and moved the oval a bit to accommodate it.
This is a very CAS card. Made even easier because I die cut the pumpkin out of an already brayered/stamped piece I had. I didn’t like the way it looked as it was, so I die cut it & since the die cut is so open, it really came out looking much nicer 🙂 The greeting is stamped directly on the card front w/ the rust and textured white layers having die cut ovals around it. I added a bit more of the die cut flourishes around the oval.
Congrats again, Julie! Enjoy your week! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
