The Stampin Up October My Paper Pumpkin Our Friends of a Feather kit arrived at the right time to get some friendly Thanksgiving cards. I made the cards as intended and have lots of feathers left over so I can make some alternative projects later.

Today’s card showcases the ease of using patterned paper that is designed to work together. The Stampin Up Country Lane #147804 DSP collection is featured here. I added the sentiment from the coordinating Country Home #147678 stamp set. I added a few Sprig # 148012 punched pieces and a bow from the Braided Linen Thread #147808.
Today’s card is a real labor of love and features a lot of Stampin Up product from the Holiday Catalog. I started with the Buffalo Check #147797 backfround from Stampin Up. Then I went to town layering the Chicken Wire #147807 elements. Then the Stitched Shapes #145372 Framelits with the sentiment from the Country Home #147678 stampset. I added the tin can and flowers also from the Country Home stamp set. Yes I went a little nuts with the fussy cutting on this card but it really adds to the rustic and homey feel.
Today’s card is a simple design featuring the Country Home #147678 Stampin Up stamp set. You are not seeing things…. there is a wee smudge on the white from the Blackberry Ink on my fingers from trying to close the new Stampin Up ink pads URGH! No worries I took the picture before I added a rhinestone to cover up the smudge and then went ahead and added a few extra! The polka dot paper is from the County Lane DSP #147804 Collection.
Today’s card makes me giddy inside. I love everything about this card especially the sentiment from the Country Home #147678 stamp set from Stampin Up. The patterned paper is from the Country Lane #147804 DSP collection. For the pumpkin I cut a Stitched Shapes #145372 and then textured with the Tin Tile #147906 Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. To finish the pumpkin, I added the Sprig punched #148012 pieces and blinged it out with rhinestones.
Over the next few days I will be posting some of my Thanksgiving cards that I made using the Country Home #147678 stamp set from Stampin Up. I love all that this set has to offer and it is perfect for showing my friends and family how grateful I am for them in my life. Today’s card also showcases the Tin Tile #147906 Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on a strip of metallic copper cardstock.
I tried my hand at doing 2 step stamping with the feathers from the Making Every Day Bright #148813 from Stampin Up. It’s not one of my best works but none the less it turned out fine. I usually do my 2 step stamping with the Stampin Up Stamparatus but it would be way too time consuming for creating a background so I resorted to the old fashioned method. The sentiment is from the Tropic Chic #146753 stamp set.
