Thankful Leaf

Textured PL Maple Leaf
Here’s a pretty simple card for you today which doesn’t have much stamping, but was fun to make nonetheless.

I started by cutting one of the larger Seasonal Snapshot Project Life cards to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ size and adhering it to the card base.  I then took a doily and sponged it with some Sahara Sand ink.  My objective there was to give it an aged and not-so-stark-white look.  I think all that I really accomplished there was making it look dirty.  :0

After adding the burlap ribbon, I added some loops of linen thread.  I cut out a leaf with the Bigz Autumn Accents die using Tangerine Tango card stock, which I then ran through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain embossing folder.

The sentiment is from the Holiday Invitation stamp set.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Give Thanks

Give Thanks for FringeI love Fall colors.  We don’t really get the pretty colors of leaves for Fall where I live, but I can make my own.  I pulled out my Fall Fest stamp set and made my own Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze leaves.

Give Thanks for Fringe Close UpThe sentiment comes from the Holiday Invitation stamp set.  I added some gold sequins and colored some pearls.

I finally used the Fringe Scissors to make the Mossy Meadow trim.  They are really fun to use.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
