Grateful for So Much — FMS164

I love this week of the year!  The kids get the whole week off from school and this year my husband has been able to take the week off from work, so we are getting lots of family time.  We don’t have much planned — a little cooking and baking, going to see a couple of movies, a little shopping, and visiting some family.  I love it!

Another thing I love is this week’s sketch by the oh-so-talented-and-lovely Jen Brum at Freshly Made Sketches.  She has such a good one for us this week:

I wanted to make one more Thanksgiving/Fall themed card because the Christmas train is coming in a hurry.  I pulled out the Seasonally Scattered set and stamped it with Cajun Craze ink on a strip of Very Vanilla card stock.  I then layered some burlap ribbon and Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon over the stamped image.

Grateful for So MuchI stamped the sentiment from the For All Things stamp set over the banner image from the same set.  Colors used were Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay.  This card came together pretty quickly.  I will use it to send to my MIL to thank her for her preparations for our Thanksgiving dinner.

We hope you’ll be able to join us and make your own card using this sketch.  We love to see your creations in the gallery.  You can check out what the design team made at the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Season of Love

SS Card 2Here’s another Convention display board sample for you using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set.

SS Card 2 Close UpI embossed the stamped image with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder and then used a sponge dauber to apply some Pink Pirouette ink around the middle of the image.  I added a few embellishments and kept it pretty simple.

Box of Thanks

I have another Convention display project to share with you today.  Since Fall is right around the corner, I thought this project would be appropriate.

SS 3d 1I think it’s so fun to decorate the Kraft Gift Boxes.  They come in two sizes in the annual catalog, and there will be a cute small size in the Holiday catalog too.

I started by stamping this box with the Hardwood background stamp before assembling the box.  I then die cut the leaves using the Autumn Accents Bigz die and embossed them with the Woodgrain embossing folder.

SS 3d 1 Close upI used a sponge dauber to apply the Hello Honey, Pumpkin Pie, and Early Espresso inks to the Seasonally Scattered stamp and stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock.  I used a die from the Apothecary Accents framelits set to cut out the “thanks.

A Hardwood Season

Another convention display board sample for you.  I hope you’re not getting tired of seeing the same three stamp sets.

The card today uses the new Seasonally Scattered stamp set which will be available in the upcoming Holiday catalog.  So you can consider this to be a sneak peek as well.

SS Card 1

Out of all my cards that I made for the display boards, I’d say this one is most “me.”  And I had to laugh when a couple of stamping friends saw it on the boards and asked me if I had made it — even they knew.

I stamped the background with the Hardwood background stamp and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I added some scallops and paper piercing and a big bow.

I think what I like most about this card is the color combination — Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze, Island Indigo, and Very Vanilla.  I’ll definitely be using these colors together again.

Two Scattered Seasons

I have two more convention display board samples for you today.  They both feature the stamp set, Seasonally Scattered, which will be in the upcoming Holiday Catalog and has three stamps — one for Thanksgiving, one for Christmas, and one for Valentine’s Day.  Now I know it’s way too early for any of these holidays!  But I just wanted to share what was on the display boards.

SS Card 4I used a combination of lots of pinks on this card — Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral.  I also used some of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the heart, and the cute little heart punch included in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack for the strip of punched-out hearts.

SS Card 4 Close UpI used a sponge dauber to apply the different colors of ink directly to the stamp before stamping on the white card stock.  It’s subtle in the picture, but more noticeable in real life.

SS Card 3Here’s a Christmas card on which I used an ombre effect.  I embossed the image with white embossing powder on white card stock.  I then used  a sponge dauber and started by swiping Marina Mist ink across the top of the panel.  I then followed this with Coastal Cabana and then Pool Party.

SS Card 3 Close UpI added some punched scalloped borders and a layer of vellum over the dsp.  I think this is a fun technique, and it really is quite easy.
