A Kitchen Sink full of Thanksgiving Inspiration!

This Thanksgiving Day card was inspired by a vintage looking card that I found while roaming the web. It can be found here. This turkey reminds me of the lovely Currier & Ives brown plates that my Grandmother would use for Thanksgiving dinner.

Somehow my card version kept growing and before I knew it, I had used 7 different KSS stamp sets! Electronically cutting out the turkey, ivy, basket of apples, pumpkins, corn, and banner made it a lot easier to stamp individually and then assemble. If I had tried to mask everything … I would still be stamping into New Years!!!

After having my stamped cut out images, I needed to determine where the background images should go. To help visualize this, I used removable adhesive on the stamped cut-outs and lightly placed them down on my card. This way I could see where the trees and hay bale should go first.

Using the MISTI, I placed the last step for the large tree (step #4) and the hay bale (Step #3) on my card over the cutouts. Closed the lid to pick up the stamps, removed the lightly tacked down cutouts and then inked up and stamped. This was the foundation. Next, cutting a quick mask for hay bale, I did the same process for the brush stroke ground (under the apple basket and hay bale) and pine trees (first the larger and the smaller – no mask just overlapped the trees). Lastly, added the sentiment. Then it was just a matter of adding permanent adhesive to the stamped cut out images that would go on top and then add up dots to the ivy, turkey and the banner with the sentiment.

Happy-Turkey

Substitute for Autumn Leaves

With the cooler weather, I am missing the leaves changing color. We have only Pine and Oak trees, so no color changing at our house. But that won’t stop me from changing the colors of leaves while stamping! To simulate clusters of red, orange, and yellow maple leaves, I used Multi-Step Ivy. I think it works … or does it look like poison ivy?

Tell me what you think?

Happy-Thanksgiving
