More Thanksgiving/Fall Cards

I made a few more seasonal cards!!!!
The first one is made from a SU set that I just love......"autumn" is part of an unknown set. I used SU inks and aqua painters. I decided to use pop dots on the squash and leaf just to add some dimention.
The second one is a bit plain for me, but it works. The green paper that is cut into the Top Note is actually shimmery and does look nice in real life. The enjoy stamp is SU. I used MS gold ink on the leaves and it does add some shimmer.
The third card actually turned out very masculine. I had the rub on in my stash, and have just never gotten around to using it. The orange paper is shimmery and looks real nice. All the colors look as tho they came in a card kit, but didn't.
The fourth card is made from one of my favorite stamps. It's just one of those clear $1 stamps. I love the way it colors up. I used SU inks and aqua painters for it. I really like that watercolor effect. I purchased the straw paper from JA and thought it worked perfectly with this stamp.

Some Thanksgiving Cards

Well, I'm in full Thanksgiving Card mode!! I bought the Pilgrim/Indian images from a consignment shop for $5 this spring.......it's a SU set from years ago and has about 26 images!!!! I purchased the turkey image last fall and never used it as it's a bit intimidating. I used SU aquapainters on it. TFL!

Designer's Lottery

At ISC we have what is called a Designer's Lottery. Every two weeks we are challenged to make something different. A winner is drawn at random and then receives all of the entries as her prize. This time, Robin challenged us to make a vintage card. I am "vintage challenged" so this was a real stretch for me. I used SU Soft Suede ink on a make up sponge to "age" the paper after I stamped it with Staz On. I used SU inks/markers along with an aqua painter to add some muted color to the images. The buttons are from a rummages sale, the ribbon is from Walmart, the lace is from JoAnne's, and the paper is from a LSS. TFL!!

Challenge 9/6-9/11 at ISC

Here is my entry for this weeks challenge hosted by my dear friend Lynnie. She challenged us to make a card using a photograph. Friends of ours will be celebrating their 50th this October. The invite had a pic of them on their wedding day. I really wanted to make a special card for them, and I decided to use that photo. Thanks for the challenge Lynnie! TFL!
