Hi stampers! I'm cranking out the fall cards this week even though it doesn't feel much like fall after it snowed yesterday (UGH) and it was like 34 degrees out! Hopefully it gets warmer like they say it will as I have a 5k on Saturday and while I like to run when it's cool I'm not a fan of COLD at least when I'm not used to it yet! And my mom is walking and I'll never hear the end of it if she's cold :-)
Anyway, my card for today is what I'm calling wood on wood as it mixes the birchwood paper from the thanksgiving tablescape kit with the woodgrain embossing folder. I should send this to my in-laws as they are adding hardwood to their family room this week and have been struggling on which way to lay it as it's a different shade from the rest of the hardwoods in the other rooms :-) All the ladies say since it's different it should run perpendicular while the menfolk say it should be parallel:-) I'll have to go visit soon and see what way won!
Stamps: Gently falling, truly grateful
Paper: Very vanilla, crumb cake, early espresso core'dinations
Ink: Early espresso, chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, crushed curry, raspberry ripple
Accessories: Thankful tablescape kit, linen thread, sanding block, woodgrain embossing folder
I pulled the layout and general idea from a card I had seen on a challenge blog. And the picture is a bit wonky. My editing software is on the fritz and some of the settings got changed and I can't figure out how to make them go back....
And finally, have you checked out the Stampin' Up blog and store lately? There is a lot of new fun stuff like an ornament kit and some fun MDS classes.
Isn't this ornament cute! It's just like the one featured in the Holiday Catalog. And everything is already cut and scored for you! All you need is some hot glue! There's also a video on the SU Youtube channel showing you how to assemble it!
And here's some of the CUTE images from the MDS classes and downloads!
