More Holiday Cards


I'm doing a little blogging with my light dinner tonight 8-) popping in to share a couple of Thanksgiving cards I made earlier today and late last night. I had a special order for several more Thanksgiving cards and I wanted to get them knocked out while having fun playing along with challenges. (I kid. It was my mom wanting some more. Hee hee. She likes to send out cards at Thanksgiving.) :)

I love this first card. But it's hard not to because it uses Basic Grey's Persimmon papers. (I'm still hoarding my precious little 6x6 pad of this stuff.)

I was completely inspired by the sketch this week at CAS on Sunday. I do have mine turned a bit and that was an accident (in my room without my phone {GASP} and working from memory) but I like it the way I have it anyways.

The panel is PTI's Rustic White embossed with the PTI Woodgrain impression plate. The sentiment is white heat embossed on CTMH Outdoor Denim cardstock using CASual Friday's Amber Waves stamp set.

I am also playing along with the following challenges:

Now for the other Thanksgiving card I made this morning during quiet crafty time (so blissful).

I used WPlus9's Doodle Buds (such a fun set) and inspiration from the current Muse Challenge, a card by Tracey McNeely, using the two flowers as the focal point and sentiment across the bottom in a similar fashion.
I stamped and colored the flowers with Copic markers then die cut and layered over a panel I had stamped and embossed using PTI's Canvas & Linen impression plate. It seemed to need a little something more, so I sponged Distress Ink Rusty Hinge around the edges - and I like how it adds to the rustic fall feel for the card. The sentiment is from CASual Friday's Amber Waves and is white heat embossed on a dark brown strip of cardstock.
