Give Thanks


Now that I finished all the Christmas workshops and classes, I want to get some Thanksgiving cards done and in the mail early enough so they can be enjoyed before the Christmas decorations start going up.


I stamped the round pumpkin from the Jack of All Trades set with Pumpkin Pie then sponged some Tangerine Tango on it. The leaf and vine were cut with a Memory Box die and the leaf behind the pumpkin with the SU retired Sweetest Stem Embosslit.

I'm going to take it to play in the following challenges


CCEE Stampers wants us to make a card using only part of an embossing folder.  I've just embossed the bottom 2/3 of the card.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Jack of All Trades, Hand Penned Holidays (retired)
Ink:  Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip
Paper:  Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla
Other:  Houndstooth EF, Sweetest Stem Embosslit (retired), Tiny Tendril die (MB), Chocolate Chip Ribbon 

Thanks for stopping by.   Leave me a note and I'll see you soon.

Enjoy!
