Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello, crafty friends! With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I want to wish all of you a very blessed 2017 Thanksgiving with safe travels while you make happy memories with family and friends.  Which you are going to scrapbook when you get back, right?  Ha-Ha!  Aren't I funny?  Seriously, at our home we will be taking our annual family photo for my hand made Christmas cards, and if I can get that accomplished- that's sayin' something- do you know what I mean?

Here is one of the cards I made for this years Thanksgiving celebration:

This card came about because of my obsession of coloring with the new Stampin' Blends. I was experimenting with the Stampin' Blends trying to see what they would look like just colored and not worrying about blending them together. :)

I used 4 different stamp sets to create my Thanksgiving card: Vintage Leaves, Painted Harvest (sentiment), Timeless Textures (splatter and coffee rings), and  lastly the Watercolor Wash background stamp set.  

To create more of a vintage feel, I distressed the edges of the cardstock layers using my finger nail. To finish it off, I added a few Gold Metallic Enamel shapes and a bit of Gold Metallic Thread.

Thanks for stopping by.   Don't forget about the Online Extravaganza sale and get double the savings if you combine it with my November Host Code gift offer

Have a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving celebration!

Eastern Beauty for #SSC166

Hello, crafty friends.  Today's card features the Eastern Beauty Bundle colored with Stampin' Blends following Sunday Stamps! new sketch challenge.

Now that we have Stampin' Blends, I can't stop coloring!  I went through all of my stamp sets, and decided it would be fun to color the flower images in the very cool and stunning stamp set called Eastern Beauty.  After embossing the three flowers with Gold Embossing powder, I colored them with Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends.

The gold foil leaves are from the Flourishing Framelits and match perfectly with the Eastern Beauty flowers.  The congratulations sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  I have always loved the Bundle of Love Specialty DSP with the gold embossing on the paper, and actually used it instead of hoarding it. :)
