Simon Says.........Thanks/Thanksgiving

wed-newchallenge-header

Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
Our theme this week is Thanks or Thanksgiving, and the DT are playing with all things Tim Holtz!  I used  one of a set of his dies and also a stencil this week:

SSS Nov9

supplies: recycled cream cardstock, Tim Holtz Mixed Media 2 thinlet die, carved pumpkin, ripe persimmon, fired brick and aged mahogany distress inks, Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves die, Winnie & Walter Big, Bold Blessings sentiment, Simon Stitched Rectangle die, Little B acorn sticker

This card is longer than normal - I wanted to use all of this beautiful scroll/flourish and the big sentiment, so I just lengthened it to about 7 1/4".  My next card is a normal A2 size.

SSS Nov 9

supplies: kraft, recycled cream, chocolate, and burnt orange cardstock, Tim Holtz Autumn stencil, distress inks as above, plus rusty hinge and gathered twigs, a swirly leaf embossing folder, DieNamics thanks die

The splatters are part of the stencil design.  I love the way the embossing brings out the details of the leaves even more, or vice-versa!  I offset my sentiment die with a darker brown under the top one to give it more definition.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher
