Countdown to Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving right around the corner and so many things to be thankful for, I thought it would be nice to showcase cards made with Thanksgiving/Fall in mind.  Over the next several weeks, I will be posting cards all made from the same color scheme using the Autumn Spice Designer Series Paper as my inspiration.

Here's the first card in my Countdown to Thanksgiving:

Colors: More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Old Olive
StampsDay of Gratitude
Accessories: Autumn Spice DSP, Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die, Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen, Natural Hemp Twine, 3/4 Inch Circle Punch, 1 Inch Circle Punch, Stampin Dimensionals, Sponge Daubers

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to see you again soon.

Night & Day Halloween Gift

Here's a gift that I made for my Secret Stampin' Sister last year for Halloween.  The wooden box was purchased from Michael's and then decorated with Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper - Night & Day (now retired).  The card was made to fit in the box and used the Paper Flocking technique to create "feathers" from paper.

Colors:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Yoyo Yellow
Stamp Sets:  Twick or Tweet
Accessories:  Modern Label Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8 Circle Punch, 1-1/4 Circle Punch, Black & White Gingham Ribbon (retired), Night & Day DSP, Black Acrylic Paint, Sizzix Fun Serif Alphabet

Happy Crafting,
