Thankful

www.theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com
This is a card that I made for my mother-in-law. She enjoys receiving hand made cards and shows them to her friends at her Rest Home. She has a small bulletin Boardin her room where she displays her "latest art card".
The acorns, leaves, and ribbons were from Michaels. Colored Pearl embellishments were from AC Moore.
The stamp is from Stampin Up's Falling Leaves.
I used Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, and Pumpkin Pie card stock from Stampin Up.The ink used was also Cocolate Chip. The Designer paper Was Stampin Up's Autmn Traditions.

Thankful


This card was one that I had planned to send to my son in Iraq. But, my husband and daughter voted NO.

They thought that it was too "frilly" for a soldier and that his unit would tease him about the "girly-man"card.

I made another one for him and sent it to him 2 weeks ago. It should get there this week.

I used leaves and acorn from a floral pick that I bought for 50 cents at AC Moore. The card stock is Stampin Up's Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant, and Pumpkin Pie. The designer paper, also Stampin Up,
is Autumn Traditions. The sentiment stamp is from Falling Leaves by Stampin Up.

Chocolate Covered Autumn

http://http//www.theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com/This card was fun to make. I have been doing a lot with my Autumn Traditions paper and thought I'd make a few different style cards using the same paper. This one has a three-dimensional pumpkin that gives it some punch. May have to hand deliver this one or pay $$$ for post office packaging.
I used the following Stampin' Up card stock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip and Soft Suede. The designer paper is Autumn Traditions from Stampin'Up. Flower Charm is from Making Memories "Charmed". Pearls are from Queen and Company. Stamp is from Stampin'Up's Grateful Greeings. The ink for stamping and edge burnishing is Chocolate Chip.Leaves are from Wallmart's Clearance Rack in 2009. I "borrowed" the little pumpkin from a bowl with a potpouri mix in a grocery store's bathroom.
