Fall and Thanksgiving Cards

Hello Friends.  Days are growing shorter and cooler signals the arrival of fall.  In fact, Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away!  Yikes!  Today I have several cards to share with you ... some fun ... some pretty.  Please stop in soon to see what's new in the store -- there are so many fun items to use for cardmaking and gift making.  Over the next few posts, I will be sharing with you some holiday gifts I have made for friends and family.   Please send me photos of what you are making.  It's fun to share and inspire each other.

This is such a fun card! And yes it did take a while to make.  I made the background by blending Distress Oxide Inks then die cut all the images and put them together.  I love the new Little Bit dies Turkey Dinner and Pumpkin Pie from Taylored Expressions -- they are perfect for Thanksgiving cards.  And the Little Bit Turkey really looks scared!

This turkey looks a little more relaxed as he stands among the swirling leaves.  I love, love, love the new Lawn Fawn Stitched Windy Backdrop die.  It cuts a large rectangle and all the swirls that are perfect for leaves or snowflakes!  Patchwork-Turkey-Turkey-DayPatchwork Turkey Happy Turkey Day – Impression Obsession die Patchwork Turkey; Taylored Expressions stamp set If Turkeys Could Talk; TE Little Bits die Leaves; Lawn Fawn die Stitched Windy Backdrop; design inspired by Karen Amidon

The turkey (above) and the leaves/acorns below are all from the Impression Obsession Patchwork collection and I love the homespun look they have when cut from paper stamped with some of the IO Mini Patterns stamps.  The new Memory Box greeting is perfect for fall cards.

Next I am sharing several cards I made with the IO Wheat die which is one of my favorites.  The first card is an easel card.

For this next card I die cut the wheat then colored them with various inks (mostly Oxides).

Same for this card: cut then colored.  Very simple but so pretty.

Another Oxide ink background, wheat in a more natural color and a lovely sentiment.

Finally, three stitched leaves cut and colored (Oxides) and mounted on the card front with a sweet sentiment.  I could have cut the front panel of this card with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Windy Backdrop for more texture and interest.
