Leftover Turkey

I know Thanksgiving is over and you've probably had your fill of turkey and are wondering what to do with all the leftovers in your fridge but I have one more fall card to share with you before I start my Christmas projects.  Poor little Turkey Lurkey here was a last minute fall card.  Really easy to do.  I believe the layout was a Mojo sketch.

The dp is DCWV and the sentiment and turkey are from Verve's  Bountiful Harvest set.  I colored the turkey with SU markers.  It doesn't show in the picture but the floral panel has all kinds of glitter on it.  This post was scheduled early because as you're reading this I'm in the middle of decorating for Christmas.  That's our tradition to decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving.  I can't even share any Black Friday deals I may have got because it hasn't happened yet.  I hope you got some great deals.  Well till next week.... I have covered comp books ready to go for my next post.  See you then.

Let the Christmas Season begin ...

Harvest Blessings

Here's another example of Spring meets Fall.  The stamp set used is SU Fabulous Florets that debuted in the Spring Mini I believe.  I stamped the flower with versamark on some Really Rust SU paper, heat embossed with clear powder and Voila ... Fall flower.  I stamped the leaves with Early Expresso and I pop dotted the flower to give it some dimension.  The dp (DCWV) behind looks like its one long panel but actually its 2 seperate panels trimmed with the scallop trim border punch SU.  The sentiment is from Verve Bountiful Harvest set punched out with the Designer Label punch SU.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and for those Black Friday shoppers ... Good Luck!  See you next week.

Totally Nuts

Do you like the title? That's how I feel sometimes LOL.  Although I left off part of the sentiment... Totally Nuts for You.  This is a new Studio G set I picked up at Walmart for $.97.  I've seen many a cricut squirrel card done with similar sayings so I was thrilled to find this sentiment so I could make one too.

I used Mojo207 for the layout which gave me a chance to use some more dp from DCWV Harvest Gathering stack.  I thought the tree dp was a perfect pair to go with the squirrel image.  I embossed the 2 layers with a Sizzix folder.  The squirrel from Winter Woodlands cart was cut at 2 1/2 in and then rubbed with some SU chocolate chip ink.  I didn't like the little acorn cut from this cart so I just stamped the acorn that came in the Studio G set on some kraft paper and cut it out.  The sentiment was punched with SU's curly label punch.  Thanks for stopping by.

Autumn is the Second Spring

I love this sentiment especially since Fall is my favorite time of year, so that's why I used it as the main focal point on this card.

The stamp is from The Paper Company set Autumn Harvest along with the image.  I couldn't wait to put these colors together. I love the way SU's new Pool Party looks with the yellow mustard color.  The patterned paper is DCWV new Autumn stack Harvest Gathering.  I had originally stamped some leaves and cut them out but I thought it looked too sloppy so I decided to cut some leaves with the cricut A Child's Year cart at 1 1/4in.  To give the leaves a little bit of texture I stamped the leaves from SU's set French Foilage over top.  The pool party panel is embossed with a Sizzix folder and edged with SU's scallop trim border punch.  I think this one is my favorite of the fall cards I've done this year. I hope you liked it too.  See you next week.
