Happy Thanksgiving

2013_11_28IMG_4044 Happy Thanksgiving!   I am so excited to unveil my Thanksgiving card because I “be-leaf” I did a fantastic job brayering and sponging all by myself!  I took the lessons from my sister, Cammie and brayered and have finally branched out on my own.  I added the woodgrain #128763 background stamp and then sponged to make it look like pieces of wood siding.  I used a piece of grossgrain ribbon and wrapped it with twine before adding the stamped sentiment from the Tags 4 You #131823 and punched with the coordinating label bracket punch# 132153.  I stamped the wonderful Magnificent Maple stamp #131868 in espresso directly on the woodgrain background.  I then brayed whisper white cardstock with reds and oranges and then stamped the maple leaf again and cut it out and popped it on top of the espresso leaf.  Wow I surprised myself with the finished card.  So I must say I am thankful for all the lessons that my sister / upline has taught me to bring me into the world of brayering.

The Tags 4 You and the Magnificent Maple are available in the Stampin Up holiday catalog. The Tags 4 You and the Bracket Label punch are available as one of Stampin Ups Bundle and Save options.  When purchased together (wood bundle #133593 and clear bundle #133294) you can save 15%.

2fer Thanksgiving

2013_11_24DSCI0527Today’s post is a 2-fer of Cammie’s Thanksgiving / Fall cards.  Both of these cards are fantastic but the photo really does not do it justice. The cards are so different one has minimal stamping and 1 is heavy stamping.  The background paper for the  pumpkin card  is a piece of the beautiful sweater weather DSP from the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  The pumpkins were was  stamped with the Everything Eleanor #124164 and then punched with oval punches and then pieced together #132184.  She added hand cut stems and some leaves cut from the Little Leaves Sizzlits #114511.  The Give Thanks sentiment is from a retired set but is mounted on 2 Artisan punched pieces #130920.

The second card features the fabulous Magnificent Maple #131868 single stamp available in the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  Cammie used lots of inks and daubers to create a fabulous fall foliage card.

Fall Foliage

2013_11_15DSCI0459Today’s post is a simple fall card that Cammie made using the Magnificent Maple single stamp available in the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  Of course Cammie created a fall brayered background and then randomly stamped the magnificent maple stamp .  She embossed the leaves in white and gold.  To complete the card, Cammie added a threesome of triangles and a brad at the apex of each triangle.  This card is a great all occasions fall card.

Magnificent Maple

2013_11_03IMG_4025 I needed some fall thank you cards so I inked up the Magnificent Maple single stamp #131868 and stamped them in 4 colors and created a four panel card.  I textured the soft suede cardstock with the Woodgrain textured folder #127821.  I added the sentiment from the now retired Seasonal Sayings stampset and wrapped it with twine.

This card was a simple design but turned out great mostly in part because the Magnificent Maple stamp is the perfect fall leaf stamp.  This stamp is available in the Stampin Up holiday catalog and will not be available after 2 Jan 2014 so if you have been looking for the perfect leaf stamp get it before it is too late.
