Now that we’re firmly into November and temps have finally started to cool off in Southern California, I decided to move all of my Halloween-themed stamps out of my primary rotation stamp area on my craft table and put them back into their permanent storage location. In their place, I pulled out some more Fall and Thanksgiving theme sets to put in their place instead. Since I had them out and handy anyway, I decided to make a Thanksgiving card for my aunt.
I absolutely love how this design turned out. Amazingly enough, it was a CASE based on a card created by Catherine Pooler. While our cards are vastly different, mine still definitely pays homage to hers. Here are five things I took from her card and incorporated into mine:
- She had narrow panel with patterned background layer behind it. – I did the same.
- She had a strong area of color concentrated in one corner. – She did some watercoloring in the lower left-hand corner of her panel while I opted to do some ink blending and concentrate my strongest color in the upper right-hand corner.
- She used a die cut in the lower right-hand corner. – I did the same.
- She used a script sentiment. – I did the same
- She embellished with sequins. – I did the same.
Here is a link of the products I used on this card:
- Tim Holtz Distress Inks – For the background panel, I used Antique Linen, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, and Barn Door. For the leaves, I used Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, and Ripe Persimmon.
- Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves
- Lawn Fawn Thankful Mice
- WOW Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder
- Bassill Basics Kraft Foil 6×6 Paper Pad
- Doodlebug Design Bon Bon Sequins
I’m entering this card in the following challenges:

Until next time …
