Thanksgiving Stamping Fun

4 Comments

I had several stamping projects for the Thanksgiving holiday.  This is the best time of year to use all those beautiful fall colors of ribbons, and papers, and inks.

Thanksgiving 2014 -7

I wanted to make a couple of Thanksgiving cards to mail to family far away. This one uses the cut out from the leaves, with a patterned paper behind.  I love that little acorn stamp!

This one says Give Thanks, and has a lovely scene with a pumpkin, a bird sitting on a milk jug, and some fruit. I think my stamp pads are drying out, and they are getting a bit frayed. Santa, if you’re listening, I could use some new ones – (hint hint).

The green card on the left uses the leaf print ribbon, so pretty for autumn. It has a little iridescence to it.  The one on the right was stamped with a brand new pad I got recently.  That is what made me realize the others were getting a bit old.  The cornucopia is much clearer on this card than the scene on the card above.

And this one says Thankful Thoughts, and I used a silk leaf for an embellishment.

Then I made some place cards for our holiday table using cut-out leaves and gold card stock.

These postcard style cards went with the Autumn Candle Wreaths to our wonderful office staff. I started with the same tuile ribbon with fall leaves and gold card stock. I removed the wire in the edge so it was easier to glue down. I glued another card to the back to hide the raw edge.

I added cut-out leaves and a Thinking of You stamp.

Each one is a little different, because the leaves are different.

  1. If you have current stampin’ up! Ink it is cheaper to buy ink refills than get new pads. Cute ribbon card. I think it is my favorite.
