Happy Halloween! Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Wait... What?!?!  Thanksgiving or Halloween?  You pick!

Some ladies in my Stampin' circles don't celebrate Halloween, so I had the option to make a Fall card instead.  With the switch of just a few colors, the cards become completely different.  See for yourself!

Both cards side-by-side... The same but different!  :)

Fall Colors?

How about a twist in the traditional Fall/Thanksgiving colors?  Bravo Burgundy and Calypso Coral may not come up on your list of colors you'd use, but look how AMAZING they are together!  How'd I get the Top Note die smaller?  Cut two small strips of paper and just lay them on the edges of the die... they fit as the mat under another image... No one will know!  :)

Resisted Tree

Stamp class was on 10/21/11 and we had a great time!  This tree was created by clear, heat-embossing on Whisper White cardstock and then using 3 colors: More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede, we draw random lines with daubers and then darken the lines by going over them multiple times.  When you are done, spritz the card with Stampin' Mist and wipe away the excess color with a napkin.  This is a magical technique when it's done.  So pretty!
