Thanksgiving cards

Hello. I decided to make a couple more Thanksgiving cards before it was too late to get them mailed out. I hope you like them.

The first card uses a stamp from Just Rite Stamp Co. I got it in a set that I won as blog candy over on Becca Feeken's blog. I must admit, their stamps are fun to use, but a little too expensive for me at the present time. I was very fortunate to win this set, it has something for almost every holiday we celebrate here in the USA. I punched the image out with a circle punch, then mounted it on some SU card stock that I cut with one of my Scalloped Circle Nestibilities. It is popped up with a foam dimensional and colored with Stampin Up Markers. The card base is Stampin Up's Certainly Celery, and the DSP is Really Rust from SU's 6x6 Patterns Pack III. The Orange Rectangular gems are from my stash and are made by EK Success. There is also a sentiment inside that simply says, "Happy Thanksgiving" which is from Stampin UP's Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

The second card has a digital image and sentiment from Whimsie Doodles digital stamp Co. Melyssa who designs and owns Whimsie Doodles (see my side bar)is such a great artist, her images are so adorable. I colored this chubby turkey with Stampin Up markers, cut it out, then decided that I would rather have it on a rectangle (what a waste of time cutting it out). The yellow strip at the bottom is Stampin Up's Crushed Curry cs, and is stamped with SU's Woodgrain Background stamp with Crushed Curry ink. The three rectangles of DSP are also Really Rust and come from SU Pattern Pack III. I cut out the sentiment and brushed it many times on the Crushed Curry ink pad to get that look that you see. The final touch was of course some bling which was in my stash and from Michael's. I love bling!

If you need a Thanksgiving stamp, I highly recommend the turkey image in the current Stampin Up Mini Catalog. Scroll down and you will see a card that I made with it.

Until next time..................Blessings, Lisa
