Happy Thanksfiving

>> Monday, October 2, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Trust you had a good weekend. Our weather here in NW Ohio has finally cooled down. We had a week with temperatures in the 90s. That's rare for August, let alone September! I'm happy to see those temps leave and some cooler fall like weather appear. :-)

My cards today feature a couple of new DRS greetings (Happy Thanksgiving and Favorite Season of All) and die cuts from Spellbinders. About a year ago I joined the small die of the month club at Spellbinders. Today's cards use September's dies. I really like the leafy wreath with extra leaves and acorns for embellishments.

 I started by die cutting the wreath in green, yellow and red CS and then glued onto the cream card base. While that dried I die cut several leaves and acorns from yellow, orange, rust and brown CS. I used some TH Distress inks to add some color to the edges of the leaves and acorns. Once they were added to the wreath, I stamped the Happy Thanksgiving greeting in the middle of the wreath with Archival Jet Black ink.
For the second card, I die cut the wreath out of green CS, glued it onto the white panel and attached it to a yellow card base. I again die cut some leaves and acorns from yellow, brown and red CS, using some distress inks to add some dimension to the edges. The bow was die cut from a small die of the month club set from last November. The greeting was stamped with Archival Jet black ink. Some Nuvo clear drops were added to the center of the yellow bow.

Here's a look at the inside of the cards.

The Psalm 100 greeting was stamped with Archival Jet black ink. Some die cut leaves and little acorn were added to the corner. I really like how these turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today.
