Thanksgiving Day 2

Back again with another Thanksgiving post.  Once again, same designer paper and stamp sets.  I love to see how many different ideas I can come up with, using the same stamp set.  SU products are so versatile, that even when using the same stamps and designer paper, you can come up with numerous looks.

Stamp Sets:  Gently Falling and Hand-Penned Holidays
Designer Paper:  Spice Cake
Card Stock:  More Mustard, Very Vanilla
Ink:  More Mustard, Soft Suede, River Rock
Accessories:  Twine, 1" square punch

Preparing for Thanksgiving

Last weekend, Nancy and I went to a crop in New Cumberland, PA, hosted by Janet Wakeland.  What a blast!  We got so much done.  Over the next few days, I'll be showing you the Thanksgiving cards that I created.  All with the same designer paper (Spice Cake), and stamp sets (Gently Falling and Hand Penned Holidays).

Here is the card, that started it all:

This is a CASE (copy and share everything) card.  At the moment, I can't remember where I CASE'd it from, but if I remember, I'll come back and update this entry.

I love this stamp set.  Fortunately, Nancy owns it and brought it along.  Unfortunately, it seems that I'm going to have to purchase it, as I thoroughly enjoyed creating with it.
