Well, sadly, today is the last day of my vacation and it's back to work tomorrow. I've had a really nice time off, but I'm sad to see it end.
I was in a Thanksgiving mood today so I went kinda crazy with my new Storage Units Ink and More (SUInk)stamps. I used two sets in my projects today: Bountiful Harvest and Giving Thanks.
First, I created my card, which is my submission for today's Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast. I stamped the image with Memento ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored her in with my copics. I used all SU cardstock (More Mustard and Ruby Red). I used SU's ticket corner punch on the corners and placed rhinestones in each corner. I used my nestabilities to cut out the image and scallops. My designer paper is from DCWV's Fall stack. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a glittery orange Making Memories brad.
Next, I created my two boxy bags, which were designed by Jody Morrow (TexasJodyLynn). You can find the directions on her blog here. I stamped the pilgrims with Memento ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock, colored them both in with copics, and cut them out. I put Glossy Accents onto the apples in the girl's basket to make them shine. I used my nesties to cut out the scalloped circles and placed rhinestones around the scallops. I adhered the pilgrims to the nesties using dimensionals. I used my new tag nesties to punch out the tag and stamped the sentiment onto that. I also placed a SU Pumpkin Pie brad in the hole of the tag. The ribbon is from Michael's dollar bin. I placed baggies of candy corn inside the boxes (okay, I'll admit it, I ate my way through about half a bag of candy corn today :) I love that stuff LOL).
I hope you enjoy my Thanksgiving projects. I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.
