Thankful Cheer — FMS208

It’s that time again — another new sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  And this week my sweet Floridian friend, Cindy Hall, is our hostess.  Look at what fun she has for us:

I took a few liberties with this sketch since I didn’t even use one rectangle for the focal images.  But I tried to stay true to the rest of the sketch.  Even though it’s 95 sweltering degrees here in Texas, I pulled out some Fall papers and stamps.

Thankful CheerI started with a Soft Suede card base and misted a mixture of Old Olive ink and rubbing alcohol onto a sheet of Into the Woods dsp.  I added a strip of Tangelo Twist card stock and some Linen Thread and a Classy Designer Button.

For the sentiment panel, I selectively stamped the top and bottom branches framing the Expressions Natural Element “thanks” from two different stamps from the Thankful Forest Friends set.  I paper pierced the panel after cutting it out with a Lots of Labels framelit.

The leaf was cut out of Gold Glimmer Paper using a Leaflets framelit die, and the acorn was stamped with the Cheer All Year stamp set.  I set the leaf and acorn on some looped Gold Metallic Thread.

Lots of products and lots of fun.

Thankful Cheer Close UpWe hope you’ll join us and make your own creation using the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  The design team has some great inspiration for you  — you can see we all did different things with this sketch.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Thankful Fox — Monday Montage #52

Monday Montage Banner -- October

Here we are with another Monday Montage blog hop.  There are ten of us stampers who share our projects with you every other week, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

I pulled out my Thankful Forest Friends stamp set again, and decided to use the cute little fox.  I used my Stampin’ Write markers to selectively ink the part of the sentiment stamp that I wanted to use, and stamped that on the focal panel.  I added a little paper piercing, and then stamped and cut out Mr. Fox.

Fox ThanksI also used one of the cute little Into the Woods elements.  I colored over the acorn with my markers to make it a little darker.  The colors I used on this card are Rich Razzleberry, Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow, and Old Olive.

Thankful for You — Monday Montage #51

Monday Montage Banner -- OctoberIt’s the best kind of Monday — a holiday Monday — no work or school for this family.  I hope you’re getting to enjoy a day off as well if you’re in the U.S.  This Monday is also great because it’s a Monday Montage Blog Hop Monday.  We have a group of nine stampers who are sharing their projects with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each of the posts.

I’m still patiently waiting for Fall to arrive.  With temps right under the 100 degree mark here, it sure seems far away.  But it’s coming (I keep telling myself).  I pulled out a new set, Thankful Forest Friends and some fab new Fall-themed dsp, Into the Woods for a card.

Fall ThankfulI just love these colors together — Mossy Meadow, Rich Razzleberry, and Daffodil Delight.

I used one of the leaves dies from the Leaflets Framelits to cut out some Kraft Corrugated Paper.  I also used one of the Lots of Labels Framelits to cut out the sentiment.  The Woodland Textured Embossing Folder adds some fun texture to the background.
