Give Thanks

Happy Friday!

October Retreat is getting closer and my excitement is ramping up! I can't wait to see my crafty friends, learn new techniques and make some great memories!

I joined a holiday card swap for the October Retreaters. You pick a holiday and make 10 cards to be swapped with other crafters who've picked different holidays. The end result is having one card for 10 different holidays! What a neat idea! Since Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, this was an easy one for me. Since I'm making 10 cards I try to keep the theme and embellishing simple.
 
 
First I stamped the pumpkins in brown ink and heat embossed with copper powder. 
 
 
 Next I used Color Bursts on the bottom edge to color the stamping.
 
 
 I don't have any Thanksgiving stamps or greetings (gasp) so I had to create my own sentiment here using font stamps.
Wrap in twine and call it good. It's a great card for making multiples.
 
I'm looking forward to seeing what the other ladies have come up with!
 
4 more days until I get to see my crafting buddies!

  2. Lisa!!!! I'm so glad I read this post! In the craziness of last month, I completely forgot about this swap. Luckily, I had already cut up some pieces to get ready. I just never completed. I still have a few days to get them done. Whew!

Orchard Watercolor

Welcome to September's Artist Team Blog Hop brought to you by Club Scrap. This month we've been challenged to incorporate watercolor techniques with our projects. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to dust off those Faber-Castell Gelatos.  If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Club Scrap. If you're already hopping and linked to me from Tina's Blog, you're in the right spot. Gelatos are acid-free pigment ink sticks that can be used with or without water.  I love the bright colors and creamy texture of the Gelatos.  The fact they look like lipstick tubes is kinda cute too. 1. Directly color the stamp with your gelatos. I usually start with the lightest color first and work to the darkest. 2. Mist water directly on to the stamp. 3. Stamp image onto paper.  I used all sorts of papers: cardstock, watercolor and mixed media papers. I d…
