Happy Thanksgiving Card

Today I’d like to wish all my American readers a Happy Thanksgiving and hope your all have a lovely day celebrating with your families.

It seemed apt to pull out the Come to Gather suite for today’s project as its all about gathering together and celebrating the season.

I used some of the Come to Gather DSP to create some background layers on the card base of Soft Sea Foam.

The main focal point of the card comes from the large maple leaves. These were stamped in Pretty Peacock onto Soft Seafoam cardstock, I then used an Aqua Painter to spread the ink and create a watercoloured wash effect.

I stamped the greeting onto the smaller label from the Roses dies and then added a Pretty Peacock lattice also cut from the Roses dies. A little of the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and some Pretty Peacock Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock and the card is finished.

Pretty Peacock Gather Together Card

Today’s monochromatic Pretty Peacock card would make the perfect notecard for suggesting a meet-up with friends or just to let them know you care.  I love how all the different embellishments work together to create interest to what is a very simple card.

I wanted to use the wooden leaves on numerous projects but couldn’t quite make them work here I think thye do. The first leaf was adhered to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the second was adhered using Mini Glue Glue Dots so it could add some dimension to the card.

A few Pretty Peacock Rhinestone from the Nobel Peacock collection and the card is finished.  A card suitable for all year round and not just harvest time.

Pretty Peacock Leaf Bouquet Card

I love the Come to Gather Suite of products as soon as I saw them its definitely my favourite Autumn themed suite for many years, mainly because the papers include Pretty Peacock. I think this is a bold choice for an autumnal themed collection but it really works with the Cajun Crze, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron.

I knew as soon as I got these product home I’d create a card which featured Pretty Peacock Foil die cut leaves and these turned out even more gorgeous than I expected. To create some more interest I cut some more leaves in Pretty Peacock cardstock. A little tip I’ve picked up from other demonstrators if you spray the card before you die cut the leaves you will get a two-tone effect, no idea why this work but Ilove them.

For some additional texture to my leafy arrangement I added some of the foiliage from the Frosted Frames dies in Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake. These are all secrured using glue dots as I didn’t want to move my leaves after I’d got the arrangement how I like.

The “Wishing You Well” greeting makes this card suitable for many occasions or to simply just send to someone to say “Hi” which is exactly what I’m going to do as this week is World Card Sending week. Why don’t you join in and send some random cards yourself.

A Little Lace Card Duo

Taking a break from the Christmas projects today I’m sharing a pair of cards made from the A Little Lace stamp set. I chose to keep these cards fairly simple with just Rococo Rose or Pretty Peacock with a tiny hint of Crumb Cake on the ribbon.

Rococo Rose A Little Lace Card

I used the Basket Weave 3D embossing folder to give the background some subtle texture and used the Stitched Rentangle and stitched Shape die sets for matts for the main floral image and for my sentiment. A little length of the Scalloped Linen Ribbon adds some more texture and a pop of colour from the Crumb Cake.

Pretty Peacock A Little Lace Card

As a final touch to each card I added some of the 2019-2021 In Colour Facet Dots to the centres of each flower.

Hope you like todays project and pop back soon

You’re Rawrsome! Dino Days Card

Who doesn’t  love a cute little dinosaur? I love them and have had loads of fun with the Dino Days stamp set creating a rainbow of diffrent coloured dinosaurs. My favourite was a Flirty Flamingo one, but I’m saving that one for another day.

For today’s card I’ve gone for slightly more convensional coloured dinosaurs in Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock…no boring dinos here!

The card was finished off with a strip of paper from the Dinoroar DSP, don’t just think dinosaurs when you see this paper, its bright, fun and super versatile and perfect for any kind of card.
