BC178 - Giving Thanks
Give Thanks - Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving (unless you've already celebrated as our Canadian friends did last month.)
I wanted a CAS card this time as I am trying to work on Christmas cards (have you started yet) and need to get busy or they won't get finished on time.
I started by using this awesome background that I made following a technique I learned HERE: Basically I tapped in on an acrylic block in 2-3 shades, spritzed with water and then stamped down on my card stock and smoothed out some of the colors with my finger. Sarah included a link to a video tutorial on how this is done so be sure to check it out.
I then stamped the leaves with the same distress ink colors. I stamped one and cut it out, brushed on some Pearl-Ex Powder and stamped the speckled background over it.
Card Details: Stamps: Leaves:WeRMemoryKeepers(Maple Grove) and SU-Falling Leaves.
Card Base: Really Rust
Next Layer, Chocolate Chip (it looks black in the photo but it's not).
Homemade Background: Inks Used: Peeled Paint, Brushed Corduroy and Dried Marigold. - Distress Inks-Tim Holtz (Ranger) - I also used a Really Rust ink pad for the far left leaf.
Border Punch: Martha Stewart
Embossing Powder - Opaque Vanilla (Annabelle Stamps)
Cream Grosgrain Ribbon (SU)
Green Gems - Zva
So that's it pretty much. - Be sure to check out the other BC members blogs. You can find the link on my sidebar. I'm sure they have created some awesome cards/projects.
