I finally had a chance to use a Stamping 411 sketch, which I haven’t been able to do lately:


I hadn’t inked up the little Thanksgiving turkey image from Gift Givers, so I stamped him in Soft Suede and paired him with some Spice Cake DP:


I have to admit, I am not too fond of my blender pen coloring here….I guess I was in too much of a hurry!  Or I am used to watercoloring!  Anyway, I added some punched borders and a fun little diecut leaf that I embossed after I cut it out:


The embossing did make it a bit fragile, so I cut it apart and glued them in a random pattern; the button and linen thread sort of ties it all together!  I used a sentiment and leaf from Day of Gratitude for the inside:


Wee Details:

  • Stamps:  Gift Givers, Day of Gratitude
  • Paper:  Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Spice Cake DP

How pretty LeAnne. You coloring is perfect, the shading on the tag makes the image pop. Love how you cut the piece of dsp to make a strip of ribbon.

First, I like the Scriptures you have on your sidebar.

Like the design of your card-need to try that one.

If only I looked that good at 6 a.m. Enjoy the Cassidy pics!

LOVE to see these SU papers in action, Leanne! They're absolutely scrumptious and totally on my "NEED" list :), and you've done them up beautifully!

Great card, nice child :)
You wanted to know where to buy the stamp with the little winterkid...
It´s from ARTEMIO from belgia. The number is: ARTHG485 G
So you can look around where to find.

Hugs, Heike
