Eat, Drink and Give Thanks!

Thursday is here so I have a card to share for this week's sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.

These colors are just perfect for Thanksgiving and fall.  I just got Holiday Invitation and I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

It's been forever since I've made a card with the Scallop Tag Topper closure and I knew this set would work perfectly with this style.

Blackberry Bliss is such a rich, deep color so I used it for the card base.  I punched the scallop edges and scored the card to give me a good size front panel to stamp on.  A layer of Hello Honey went on the panel first, then a layer of Whisper White.

The sentiment went on the paper first in Blackberry Bliss.  "Give Thanks" got stamped one word at a time to stack them.  Having this set in photopolymer makes both inking and stamping them individually a breeze!  Once the sentiment was in place, I stamped and die cut two pumpkins from Fall Fest and placed them in the center....perfect fit!

With style of card, the inside needs to be embellished since part of it shows.  So, leaves were stamped in two corners with Hello Honey and  Tangelo Twist.  The sentiment went off center so it's completely covered by the front panel.  I initially tried using the other October Paper Pumpkin sentiment, but it was too large and it looked funny with part of it showing on the right side of the card.

The last little detail was a bit of twine from the Under the Tree Tag a Bag Kit ( LOVE this handy!) to tie the scallop closures together.

I am really pleased with how well this card turned out with these bold fall colors together.  Now, it's your turn!! I hope you will join me and make a card to share with us.  Just go to Create with Connie and Mary for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team.

Holiday Home for TST

Happy Tuesday!  Today I have a cheerful Holiday Home card to share for the sketch challenge this week from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

I wasn't too sure about what to use for this sketch, so I looked through my stamps and decided to use Holiday Home and make two houses.

I think this card looks so warm and inviting, don't you??  The beautiful Trim the Tree Designer Paper Stack has such gorgeous designs.  The red plaid just made this card perfect!

Both houses were colored with blendabilities and die cut to add over the layer of Silver glimmer paper acting as snow.

Santa and his sleigh ride above the houses with the sentiment stamped in Cherry Cobbler below.  I didn't add any extra bling, I felt the card was perfect just sweet and simple as you see it.

Designer paper is such a wonderful way to bring life to your cards.  The Trim the Tree Designer Paper Stack has been so wonderful to work with!!  Now it's your turn!  I hope you will give the challenge a try and join me!  Just go to Try Stampin' on Tuesday for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team.

A Strawberry Slush Birthday for TSSC341

Welcome back!  I have a really bright and fun card to share with you that I made for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge from Technostamper.  I love this week's sketch, Mary Jo always has great ideas to work with!

I wanted a bold and bright card, so I used a cute set that I've had forever but have yet to put ink to.

Is this a fun birthday card or what?!  I combined About the Label with High Five to create a bold and bright card.

The Strawberry Slush card base was embossed with the Lucky Stars embossing folder.  Next, a piece of Whisper White on which the sentiment and arrows from High Five were stamped.

A strip of silver glimmer paper added a bit of sparkle, along with a few scattered stars around the card.

The gift bag was stamped, hand cut and added to the glimmer paper with Tombow glue.

The "HB2U" in the center of the package was made in two steps.  First, I stamped "HB2U" with Strawberry Slush on Whisper White.  I punched it out and trimmed down the white edges.  Then I punched a small silver foil label to layer it on and added it to the gift bag.

I really love how cute this card turned out, a perfect bright and sparkly birthday card!  Now it's up to you!  I hope you are feeling inspired to make a card and join us.  Just go to Technostamper for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team.
