I hope you are all enjoying a great day with your friends and families! I am in Richmond, VA at my sister’s house with my daughter.
Today I wanted to share this beautiful card made with the Stampin’ Up! Country Home stamp set.
I love the messages of Thanks that are part of this set!
My other favorite element on this card is the Tin Tile Embossing folder.
I used a brayer with White Craft ink
and brayered the top side of the embossing folder before putting it through the Big Shot.
That created that white shadow antiqued look. I love this very cool effect. It reminds me of the tin ceiling that we had in the kitchen of our farmhouse.
The milk jug and flowers are colored using Stampin’ Blends markers.

Today’s handmade autumn card is made with the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Truly Grateful and Color Me Autumn Designer paper. This is my favorite fall stamp set.
This card uses the colors Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Chocolate chip.
Cajun Craze cardstock is cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ to form the card base. It is layered with a piece of cajun colored designer paper from the color me Autumn pack.
The wood background is stamped with cajun craze ink on very vanilla cardstock. The log and acorn are stamped with chocolate chip ink and cut out to layer on the card for embellishments. The wheat is stamped with crushed curry which matches the washi tape. I did put the washi tape on a piece of very vanilla so the design did not get lost on the background of the designer papers.
The card is finished off with a bow made from linen thread and a banner stamped with Truly Grateful stamp.
The inspiration for this card is today’s Mojo Monday sketch. Need supplies? See the list below and Click here to go to my Online STORE.
card made with punches is an oldie but goodie that I found buried in my card stash. I pulled this card out yesterday took it to the Senior Center at the Billerica Sr. Center. They loved it!!
The hat is a 1 1/4″ square punch with the word window punch for the brim. The turkey’s head is the 1″ circle punch and the body is the 1 3/4″ circle punch.
The feathers are made with the medium scallop circle big shot die. Cut a chocolate chip scallop circle, a pumpkin pie scallop circle and a really rust scallop circle. I used a full really rust scallop circle as the base for the feathers. The pumpkin pie scallop is cut to form the top section of feathers and adhered to the really rust scallop circle. The chocolate chip scallop circle is also trimmed to make the bottom section of feathers.
The turkey’s feet and nose are sections of the scallop circle punch with pumpkin pie card stock. The turkey’s “gobble” is a piece of a really rust scallop circle.
A white marker and brown Stampin’ Write marker was used to outline the edges of the pieces to look like stitching.
This card brought back great memories of card classes with elementary school kids that I taught about 10 years ago… All those kids have grown up and are in High School. What a great handmade Thanksgiving card!
Enjoy your weekend!
