Gratitude Boxed Note cards

These are some thank you notes especially designed with Fall and Thanksgiving in mind.  There are 4 note cards and envelopes contained in a designer box.

Using the Wondrous Wreath stamp set, I stamped first with Daffodil Delight, and then Pumpkin Pie.  Lastly I stamped with Cherry Cobbler.
The wreaths were die cut using the Wondrous Wreath framelit dies and then adhered to the front of the note card. After the card was finished, cherry cobbler dazzling detail was applied to each of the berries.


The white note card is lined with Pumpkin Pie, and then Fancy Frost Specialty DSP which was sponged lightly with So Saffron ink.  A piece of 1/2" Pumpkin Pie ribbon (retired) was adhered to the lower half of the card. The same ribbon was used to make the bow on the wreath.

Pumpkin Pie cardstock was used to die cut the word "gratitude"

The box was made usng the envelope maker and Kraft cardstock.  Another wreath was made and a circular hole was die cut in the top of the box covered with a window sheet.  The wreath was adhered around the window.

To keep the box closed, a 1" Kraft card stock belly band was placed loosely around the box. and the pumpkin pie ribbon tied around it.

Tag - You're It

Days are getting shorter and shorter and the leaves on the trees are already starting to turn.  It's not expected that the colours of the leaves will be too brilliant this year due to the drought this summer.  You can see that on the leaves now.  Some are already brown and curled up and ready to fall off the tree.  So sad, because I love the fall colours.

Today I played with making some bottle tags using the "Here's to Cheers", and the coordinating "Cheerful Tags thinlets"



Using Elegant Eggplant DSP, the wine tag was die cut using the Cheery Tags framelit.  A second one was cut using Very Vanilla and it was used to cover the top scalloped edge and the part that goes around the bottle neck.  A Elegant Eggplant swirl decorated the top of the tag flap.

The image was stamped using Elegant Eggplant ink and die cut using the layering circles framelits.  Some texture dots were stamped around the bottles and glasses, and then the circle was attached to the tag flap. After the tag was complete some dazzling details was applied to the images.

A length of Very Vanilla satin ribbon was inserted through the top slit twice leaving a loop to go around the bottle neck, the remaining length going around the back of the tag and extending below it.

 Lifting up the flap exposes a sentiment stamped from "Here's to Cheers" - also stamped in Elegant Eggplant.  Again, it is die cut using the layering circles framelits and matted with a larger Elegant Eggplant scalloped circle. It was placed near the top so that when the flap was closed the sentiment was not visible from the front.


 Supplies Used:
Stamps: Here's to Cheers,Timeless Texture
Inks: Elegant Eggplant
Papers: Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant DSP
Accessories: 5/8" Very Vanilla satin ribbon, layering circles framelits, dazzling details, Cheerful Tags Framelits

Halloween Night

The Halloween DSP this year has one pattern of the DSP that has strips of "rows of spooky houses" which are perfect to make a quick Halloween card.

So, to make this card, I cut a strip that includes two haunted houses and that became the focal point of the card.

The strip of DSP was matted with Basic Black card stock, and a strip of scalloped Paper Pumpkin card stock was added at the lower end.  This strip was scalloped using the Banner Punch.  Lightly sponging this with Basic Black ink toned the brightness down and incorporated it more with the rest of the card.  Dimensionals were used to adhere this image to the card front near the bottom of the card.

The image of the witch was from the stamp set "Spooky Fun".  I also stamped a spider web and three spiders on the DSP above the image panel.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Spooky Fun
Inks: Black Memento
Papers: Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Halloween Night DSP (brick pattern), DSP (row of spooky houses), Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Banner Punch, dimensionals
