Many Thanks

Good Morning. I'm Teresa and I am new here. I am bringing you a fall colored Thanksgiving Card. 



I used several thin strips of assorted paper scraps for the background of the card. I glued them down onto a plain copy paper backing and then trimmed to fit my blank card base. Then using the Winter Village Scene Die I cut a circle from a lighter card stock (I kept the winter scene for a later time). Aligning the "frame" where I wanted it to go, I embossed an almost sheer layer of Mermaid Tears enamel to soften the background for the metallic copper leaves. The leaves are two cuts using the Fancy Leaf Die that I layered and then trimmed the "extra" from. I stamped and embossed the sentiment. The final detail was the addition of eyelets and some textured yarn. tie on a button. Now this one is ready to leave as a tiny token by everyone'e Thanksgiving plate.

Have a wonderful remainder of the weekend.

TERESA

Anything Goes card by Lynda

Hello, Lynda here to share with you my final project as the October guest designer fro SweetStamps.  It has been fabulous designing with their wonderful images this month and I thank you for your sweet comments on my projects!  Now for my project for the Anything Goes challenge.  For my project for the challenge I wanted to work with a silhouette image; so I chose the Horse image:




I stamped the image once and then again on scratch paper to create a mask.  I then used the mask over and over again to create this scene using this wonderful horses.  I colored them to match horses at the stables where my girls ride and take lessons.  The background is created using chalk and I really like the effect of an outdoor scene that it gives to my card.  I finished it off with a rubon from my stash.



There is still time for you to pull out some of your crafting supplies and take part in the Anything Goes challenge.  Be sure to link up your project on this blog post here.

Happy crafting....Lynda
