Belli Challenge #40 - Thanksgiving
This week's Belli Challenge is focused on Thanksgiving. Make a card with a turkey on it, the word "thanks", or any image associated with Thanksgiving, such as a cornucopia or pumpkin pie. I chose to stamp the word "Thanks" on this card.
I stamped the tree trunk first, then added the leaf punch-outs to give a sense of the leaves falling. The leaves are punched from glossy paper that I had created a polished stone background on. Remember the previous card posted below, Autumn Beauty? I had done several sheets of polished stone, so I just used one of those sheets to punch out my leaves.
The sentiment and the tree trunk images are from Cornish Heritage Farms. The leaf punch is from Martha Stewart.
This coaster frame is something I threw together this weekend. My mother and a couple of other ladies came over to play, and we all made coaster frames. I love this pumpkin image (Stampin Up Harvest Home), and it is so easy to color. I stamped it on watercolor paper first, then picked some colors to match the paper. This background paper is from Stampin Up - last year's Apple Cider. I found my now-retired River Rock paper so I could stamp the sentiment on the left side.
Did you see the cute little raffia bow? Folks who know me, know that I am bow-tarded. I don't do bows. My mother, however, is the ribbon queen, and I begged her to make me a bow from a bundle of raffia. She did an excellent job! Thanks, Mom!!!
Would you like to play along with the Belli Challenge? Create your own card or project with a Thanksgiving theme, post it to your blog or to SCS (keyword CBC40), and post your link to Chrissy's blog posting.
