Happy Thanksgiving

>> Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Hi Everyone,

I'm excited to be hosting Thanksgiving dinner for the first time in a long while, and I've been trying out all kinds of card designs for my invitations.  For this one, I inked up the new Filigree Pumpkin stamp and embossed it with brown iridescent embossing powder.  I then used my sponges and ink to add some color and fussy cut it out.  I decided I like the design on the pumpkin so much, that I used it to create the patterned paper for the background. It's behind the strip of embossed leaves, ribbon and the Happy Thanksgiving Greeting. 

 I tried to mimic the the colors on the pumpkin by adding them on to the greeting, sponging yellow ink in the center and orange around the edge. 

Here is a close up of the embossing on the pumpkin and the the matching background paper.

All of these stamps and more can be found at DRS Designs...Just click here!
