I made another bag for Thanksgiving, using up some old Designer Paper from Stampin' Up. I made the card from the scraps from the paper and used the Day of Gratitude stamp set. I will probably slip the card in the box with either a baked treat, like a cookie or some "blessing mix" for someone special in my kids' lives like a piano teacher. I like to thank them at Thanksgiving time to tell them what a blessing they have been in our lives.
October is breast cancer awareness month. In honor, I made a small little project for someone I know who is going through treatment. I found the tin bucket at Target in the Dollar section. I made the pink ribbon and glued it to the bucket and put the jewel on it. The little gift card is from the recent set from SU! for breast cancer called Strength and Hope. I probably fill the bucket with either some goodies or a gift card, letting her know I am thinking and praying for her during this time.
Happy Fall Y'all! This was the second card we made this month from the Loads of Love set. We filled our pick up with pumpkins and used the watercolor crayons to give it some color. The pumpkins have sparkle from glitter.
Our second card is from the retired set "Country Blessings". I punched out a scalloped rectangle as a stencil and sponged More Mustard, Expresso, and a bit of Cherry Cobbler. I then stamped the image and saying in Expresso. I then sponged the edges of the card in Expresso. Another simple but pretty card.
This is probably one of my favorite fall SU! stamp sets. It is "Day of Gratitude". I stamped the medallion a bit off the page in soft suede. The leaves are in espresso and pumpkin and cut out. The pumpkin leaf is popped up on a foam dot. The saying is inked in espresso. On the left hand side of the card I cut a small strip of espresso paper and taped it to the card and embellished it with a pumpkin button. I love the saying, " Gratitude can transform any ordinary day into Thanksgivings". A very simple card, but says alot in it's simplicity.
My October stamp club made these cute bags to hold the cards we made this month (will follow in following posts). The bag literally takes a few minutes to put together once you get the hang of it. It would be great for cards, gift card or a small gift!
