Let me show you the projects I have for you today!
Today, I am sharing Thanks / Thanksgiving projects with you. The stamps I used are divine, so very easy to work with and just beautiful!!

Thank you for being a friend
For this card I started stamping the CC321 Pinecones Background in light brown ink on a piece of Kraft cardstock, then using markers I added darker spots, then I stamped the sentiment C19888 Being a Friend in Black Ink, after that I distressed all the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Trimmed the panel to 5" x 3.75", embellished the panel with a piece of burlap and twine. Finally, added few pearls and adhered the panel to a A2 white card base.



Happy Thanksgiving
For this project I started stamping the J20533Wind Swept Leaves on a piece of watercolor paper in brown and orange permanent inks, then stamped the  LG3209 Grunge Grids (I used 2 of 3) in same colors, added few mists and panel was done.
Stamped the C19863 Happy Thanksgiving on a piece of vellum in Brown ink, added it around the panel, then added thin stripes of gold metallic tape.
Embellished panel with sequins and added to a white card base.
