Hi Girls! Happy Belated Fall! I am welcoming a change in the weather :) Fall means a NEW planting season here in the desert! I am looking forward to having a patio blossoming with pretty flowers again now that the high temps have passed. In my eyes, the colors in Lauren's, My Time To Create Color Challenge 06, MTCC06, makes for a perfect palette for a Thanksgiving card & tag combo. Combining Lauren's colors with the sketch layout from Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch Challenge C4C3 & Basic Grey's Embossing Challenge, I made this Happy Thanksgiving Pumpkin Swirls card & tag set. If you would like to see many beautiful creations, I recommend visiting all 3 of these sites! Each site has a DT that offers many ideas of inspiration! I'd love to know how you welcomed the First Full day of Fall? Be Sweet!
This is my Happy Thanksgiving Pumpkin Swirls set:
I created some background DP using the brayer technique AGAIN! It is so simple, all you do is ink up a brayer, roll it on the embossing folder & run it through your die cutting machine.
To make the pumpkins "POP"off the Whisper White Labels 1 layer, I inked up the 2 pumpkin images from the PTI Fall Elegance set with SU Really Rust ink, stamped them on a separate piece of paper, then using a VERY sharp pair of scissors, I cut them out. I stamped the stem images using SU Chocolate Chip ink on the Whisper White Labels 1 layer, then using Large glue dots, I adhered the pumpkins.
You know how I looooove ribbon! This coordinating gift tag simply adds a personal touch to a ANY gift!
