stamp sets: Time Of Year (hostess), Fabulous Flora (hostess); ink - Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie; card stock - Old Olive, Very Vanilla; blender penThis turned out to be my favorite card of the day, and it's just stamps, ink and paper. As a bonus, I don't really hate my coloring with the blender pen. Well, the leaves in the lower right are a little rough, but they were my first ones, and I've been learning to embrace imperfection this year.
While I was thinking about my Thanksgiving card dilemma, I decided to try Heidi's Watercooler Wednesday sketch. I was inspired by this stunning card of Cindy's to use the Sheltering Tree stamp set, but I couldn't fit it into the circle element in a way I liked. I eventually took an abrupt right turn and ended up here:
stamp sets - Hardwood, Sheltering Tree, Vintage Leaves; ink - Calypso Coral, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe; card stock - Calypso Coral, Delightful Dijon, Sahara Sand, Tip Top Taupe; Big Shot with Layering Ovals and Leaflets framelits; Stampin' Sponge
Much better, but I wasn't giving up on Cindy's card, so I CASE'd it more directly:
stamp set - Sheltering Tree; ink - Calypso Coral, Delightful Dijon, Pear Pizzazz, Tip Top Taupe; card stock - Calypso Coral, Whisper White (thick and regular); Big Shot with Woodgrain textured embossing folder
