  • Thanksgiving Turkey

    A Thanksgiving card featuring a new crazy turkey die. This turkey is so fun to make & I love being able to choose what colors I want for the individual feathers, Add a few or a bunch, like I die. Also a great way to use of scraps of different paper.

    A big congrats to Anita, the newest Featured Stamper (FS873)! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case.  I kept the layout & big circle element, but I used different dies, some designer paper, a turkey in place of the flowers, & made mine a Thanksgiving card.

    After die cutting all the turkey parts, I put them together, using die cut pieces of card board to elevate the turkey body, heat & feet & also to give them some stability. I cut a bunch of colors of the feathers & ended up using all of them. I like a turkey w/ a full tail. For the background, I die cut the designer paper, then die cut a circle into it & placed a harvest gold circle behind it, before attaching them to a piece of olive green. The partial greeting was stamped onto the gold circle & I used 2 circle stitch dies to cut the rust colored circle frame (see pic below).

  • Be Thankful Pumpkin

    An easy to make Thanksgiving card w/ a gorgeous new fancy die cut pumpkin & solid back layer. Make it any color or leave it all white. Add a greeting & done!

    For the Inspiration Challenge (IC934), we are visiting At Home & their Pinterest Board. I found THIS pillow to inspire my card. This fancy new die cut pumpkin made this whole card easy. I die cut it in white & 2 shades of brushed gold & paper pieced some of the gold pieces in. I used the cut out background die of the pumpkin to cut the blank burgundy red piece to back it. I also used a couple of heavy weight white layers behind the pumpkin cut out to give it some depth.

    The greeting was added below along w/ a couple of gold branches from the cut out areas. The white layer was cut w/ a new sm & lg circle edge die & also backed w/ the burgundy red.

  • Pictures of Fall

    A fun card, featuring a polaroid framed scarecrow in a cornfield along w/ a mini polaroid of pumpkins & a sunflower. Perfect for fall & Thanksgiving. Entirely die cut & easy to customize w/ any colors you like.

    For the Inspiration Challenge IC933), we are visiting Lake Effect Gallery & their Pinterest Board. THIS was my inspiration picture. The fall images & pictures all laid out made me think of of polaroid pictures so that’s the direction I went. Except for the greeting, my card is entirely die cut. I had a bunch of scraps of fall colors sitting out from a previous card, so I used them to die cut all the pieces of my scarecrow, cornfield, sunflowers & pumpkins. Sometimes it actually works out when you don’t put everything away. I die cut the 2 sizes of polaroid frames (sm in white & lg in rust) & backed them w/ card board to elevate & give them some sturdiness.

    I did add a bit of shading here & there w/ a few Copic markers. After stamping the greeting, it was a just a matter of putting the die cuts together & arranging them inside the frames.

    Thanks so much for stopping  by!
