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.

Pumpkin Patch

Today’s post is a sampling of the adorable pumpkins that I made with fabric remnants.  These were so fun to make and the best part was matching the real pumpkin stem to the hand stuffed  with rice, beans and polyfill pumpkins to make the perfect pumpkin.  I just kept making them and giving them away to friends, family, coworkers and they were received well.  The pumpkin stems were from a local pumpkin patch and all proceeds go to the a foundation to help families who have lost their children to murder.  I don’t often post projects that are non Stampin Up but it made me feel good that I was able to help in a small way and make use of the stems that would not have made it out of the patch.  This was a project that made me feel good but I had to stop because I ran out of orange fabric!
