Hello! Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow for my U.S. friends! Just wanted to pop in here to share this fun little card I made to help me get into the Thanksgiving mood and I needed a bit of a giggle which is what I was doing as I colored these fun critters:
Aren’t these guys hilarious?! This is one of the stamp sets that was released during the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember event this year and of course if you recognize the critters, then you know it was designed by Newton’s Nook. The stamp set is called “Talk Turkey” and was only available during this event. I don’t make very many Thanksgiving cards, but when I saw this stamp set come out, it just had me giggling and so I nabbed it up! I think I would certainly enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner with this crew!
For the card, I ink blended the background with the distress inks: Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey and Scattered Straw. I spritzed with water and dried the splotches with a towel. (I’ve done the same method with the sentiment strip too.) I then used some black and white paint to splatter over it and set aside to dry.
While waiting for the panel to dry, I colored up all of the images with my Copics. I’ve added some gold and white gel pen marks in certain places and then I fussy cut them all out leaving a white border around them.
I took a strip of green cardstock and die cut a grassy border and attached to the background panel. I cut both of these layers out with a stitched scallop die and then cut out the black embossed sentiment with a banner die. I then arranged all of the images where I wanted them and glued them down. I took the banner and popped it up with foam tape. I added the leaves and covered them with a glitter brush pen for a bit of sparkle. I attached all of these layers to a white A2 card base and cut off the sentiment strip along the edge.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and it made you smile! Thanks for dropping by!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving with love, laughter and lots of thankfulness in your heart.🦃
