Hi there everyone! The first Sunday of November, and Claire is our awesome Paper Players hostess! She's got a very timely theme for us:
I should have saved my big fat turkey card for this challenge, but truthfully, I have many seasonal images in my stash of stamps that I can use, and I pulled out a couple of real oldies but goodies for my card today:
Nature's Seasonal Borders is one of my all-time favorite stamps! I stamped the fall border with some Stazon ink on Shimmery White cardstock and watercolored my images in. Once I was finished, I trimmed it down and mounted it on a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock on which I had stamped a fall image and sentiment from Harvest Home, then embossed with the Subtle embossing folder and did some sponging around the edges. Here's a closeup of the images:
I added a couple of diecut leaves that I subtly watercolored to add a little dimension. I just love the line images in this set, and I hope you do too! Thanks for popping in today! Be sure to check out what the other designers created for our thankful challenge, then share yours too at the Paper Players!

Such a beautiful way to send thanksgiving wishes, LeAnne - I love that little strip of Autumn images!
I love this border and how you've colored it, LeAnne! The little die cut leaves are the perfect finishing touch!
I love how you use your "stash of stamps"! Love these seasonal stamps and how they came together on this card. Great job watercoloring those small images too!
LeAnne, this is so perfect for Thanksgiving! I love the stamped image and the embossed background. It adds so much texture to your card. That Fall border is amazing and the watercoloring is beautiful! You certainly made my challenge shine! Have a wonderful week, My Friend!
Thats a pretty fall border. Cute lil images and I really love the tiny leaves you added too!
They might be oldies, but they are most definitely goodies! This is wonderful, Leanne!
LOVE this, LeAnne!! So, so pretty. You always knock my socks off!!
This is beautiful LeAnne! The tone-on-tone background adds beautiful depth and interest and is the perfect backdrop for your strip of artsy line images that highlight everything that is good about the season. Just lovely!
LeAnne, they might be oldies, but they are fabulous. That border stamp is classic and you colored the images beautifully. The tone on tone on the background adds wonderful texture but doesn't detract from that wonderful focal layer. Another fabulous card
Beautiful fall card! love the border images!
LeAnne, I love this card and the border stamp! It is not anything I have seen before so that was a treat! Awesome job and perfectly colored too!
So pretty! I love the background stamping and texture; it really sets off the brighter border images. I am envious of your watercoloring! It's perfect! Have a great week!
Beautiful card, LeAnne! I love how colorful this is and btw, your coloring is awesome! Harvest Home has always been one of my favorite sets for Fall. TFS!
LeAnne, this is such a beautiful display of Fall gratitude. Your border stamp is fabulous and your water coloring is perfect. Great card!
This is wonderful. I love that you used older (retired) sets and in such a lovely way.
What a perfect fall card, Leanne! I LOVE the strip with all of the iconic fall images on it. Those little die cut leaves are so sweet. So much texture...Yummy!
So pretty, Leanne! Those bitty leaves are the perfect finishing touch, too.
