Thanksgiving Card with the Feeling of Christmas for the Sisterhood of Crafters

 

The cards you all submitted to the Sisterhood of Crafters “sparkle” challenge were fantastic! I hope you enjoyed being part of our challenge and are ready for the next theme, “Give Thanks” where anything having to do with gratitude is encouraged. I have always enjoyed Thanksgiving the most from all of the holidays. It’s a day that we set aside for family, friends, and being thankful for what we have. Although we should be thankful every single day of the year, the fact that we set aside a day to do it in the best way we can is wonderful.

 

It’s All in the Details
  • My card is 9 1/2″ x 6″ and scored at 4 3/4″. I started this card by stamping the wreath from Feeling of Christmas with Memento Black ink, then colored with Stampin’ Blends. It was very fun to color, even on Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • Once I was satisfied with coloring, the stitched rectangle framelit cut out the image. Always Artichoke cardstock was cut and corners rounded to layer underneath. Not being very satisfied, the Crumb Cake cardstock was cut underneath the wreath, then the Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon was wrapped over the two layers. Then, they were adhered to the card base.
  • The sentiment from Painted Harvest stamp set was inked in Always Artichoke then cropped out with the die from Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits.
  • The background of the card still looked bare to me, so I stamped the little dots in Crumb Cake ink, then added the Natural Trim and Touches of Nature Elements.
  • A small piece of a Lace Doily was adhered to the bottom of card, then the sentiment was popped up with dimensionals over the ribbon.
  • Finishing Touch: Gold Enamel Shapes were adhered to the natural flower, the sentiment and then the corner of the card.

A Day of Gratitude for Family and Retro Rubber

By Debbie Mageed, Day of Gratitude, Gratitude for Days, Thanksgiving, Holiday, Stampin Up

 

The gallery for our last challenge was just gorgeous. All of the cards were fantastic! I hope you got a chance to see them. Our next challenge is always a favorite – ANYTHING GOES! What are you working on right this minute? Got a beloved retro stamp on it?? Wonderful! Please submit it to our challenge! My card had two retro stamp sets: Gratitude for Days from the 2014 Holiday Mini Catalog and Day of Gratitude from the 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog, then I added a very recent one, Eastern Beauty from our current 2017 Annual Catalog. I’m not quite sure how this card started now, I know that I was wanting to use my favorite new In Color, Lemon Lime Twist and just kept experimenting with color combinations and ended up pairing it with Dapper Denim, always a great combination.

 

It’s All in the Details
  •  This card started by stamping the large image from Day of Gratitude in Lemon Lime Twist. The outline image from Eastern Beauty was inked in Dapper Denim and cut with the coordinating framelit, then Eastern Palace DSP was cut with a framelit. The sentiment was inked in Dapper Denim and cut with a small scallop circle framelit.
  • I just had to try my new Die Cut from Gina Marie Designs, so I cut out the stamped image and layered it onto Dapper Denim, then layered those onto the Eastern Palace patterned DSP. The card base of Dapper Denim was cut and scored. Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon was wrapped and adhered to the layers, then they were all adhered to the card base.
  • The flower die cut from Eastern Medallions was cut twice, and one was placed under the ribbon and the other was placed over the ribbon so you can see a little ribbon peeking through. The totally sweet Bitty Bow was adhered on top of those flowers.
  • Tim Holtz Love Thinlits were the perfect touch for this Thanksgiving card. I cut “family” out with Dapper Denim cardstock and adhered to the ribbon.
  • Finishing Touch was using a couple of Dapper Denim Enamel Shapes and the heart was punched with the retired Heart  Confetti Border Punch and covered with glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen to make it shine like the Enamel Shapes.
