I used an 1/8" punch to punch out his nose! Toile Tidings makes a great background, and I stamped Rudolph in Soft Suede and added a Soft Suede mat behind the stitched circle:
The sweet sentiment is from the hostess set Greatest Part of Christmas:
Now, for my turkey card! After seeing Su Mohr's beautiful use of the Day of Thanks stamp set, I finally broke down and got it for myself! I need a few samples using it, so I used the Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch for this one:
And here's their sketch:
I stamped Tom in Early Espresso and colored him with assorted Blend markers. My card base is Sahara Sand, and I embossed the front with the Subtle EF and added a panel of gingham DSP. I had a hard time imagining sequins with my turkey, so I stamped some small leaves from a past Paper Pumpkin kit in Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake, fussy-cut them out and placed them around my turkey image.
I added a half-circle scalloped mat in Real Red, and stamped a sentiment from the same set inside, along with a few subtle leaves:
I actually cut apart the Happy Thanksgiving stamp that I used on the front...it's easy to match back together to make it long again, and having it in two pieces allows me to stamp it in different orientations! Thanks for visiting today!
I had a little free time last month and picked up a couple of cross-stitch projects to do....this one turned into a little pillow:
I had some buffalo print fabric in tan and black for the border and back, and I hand-stitched some SU black lace trim around the edges! Now I am working on a little tom turkey sampler! I just went to the frame shop today and almost had a heart attack when I got the price for a frame....I think I am in the wrong business! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
