Howdy to you all! Today I have a Thanksgiving card for you. I hope you are having some decent Fall weather. Here in Northern California I will just say I am not a fan of 80 degrees plus weather at this time of the year. At least the nights are nice and cool.
When I started out to make my card I was looking forward to using the Home for the Holidays stamp set by Hero Arts and I wanted to use the fun leaf paper.
I began my card by ink blending some Quick Quotes inks to create a Fall look to the sky. I then cut a piece of the leaf paper and adhered that to the card. I got this paper from a fun inexpensive store called Daiso. Anyway as you can see it says Fall.
Next I stamped the two houses with Versamark and used a gold embossing powder to heat emboss them. I colored them in using Copic pens. Next I cut them out using the Home for the Holidays dies that match the stamp set. For the snow on top of the one house I used some Nuvo drops for a little dimension. The Home for the Holidays stamp set leans more towards Christmas but you can use a different color scheme and not put to much snow in and you have Fall.
I found a nice piece of crocheted ribbon (not sure of the actual name) in my stash. I used Hero Arts pretty red brown liquid watercolor to color it. It is a little darker in the photo than it is in real life. I stuck that down using the red line tape.
I adhered my houses to the card and stamped the trees around them. I also stamped some smoke coming out of the chimneys. I think that is a nice little addition to this stamp set.
Then I added the sentiment.
