Turkey Time Catchup

So, a little past the date, but I just found this post in my drafts. Apparently in all the bustle of the holiday, I never actually clicked publish! So here it is. Our turkey wasn't nearly as cute as this little guy, but it was delicious!

Hi friends! It’s Thanksgiving Day here in the states and I can’t believe how fast this year has flown. Today I’m sharing a cute little Thanksgiving card featuring the Turkey Day set from Not 2 Shabby.

I colored this sweet little turkey image with Copic markers and then cut with my Brother Scan n Cut (although there are coordinating dies). The tag and scallop rectangle are created with the Mini Mat & Tag Dies 2 from Sunny Studio Stamps. I cut them from the Autumn Vibes and Gingerbread Kisses paper pad from Not 2 Shabby paper pad, then layered onto Kraft card stock I had stenciled with the Fall Leaves stencil from Jaded Blossom and some distress oxide inks in fall colors. I finished with a twine bow for the tag and a little gold stickles to accent the design on the paper.

Honeypot Birthday

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Today I'm popping in with a mini slimline card. A couple weeks ago I happened to be online when the Craft Roulette show went live and decided to watch. I enjoyed the show and decided to play along with the challenge. The parameters were birthday, bright & cheery 3 colors, pots/pans/bowls, and blocks.

I was a little stumped by the pots/pans/bowls until I sifted through my stack of Not 2 Shabby stamps and found this honeypot gnomie image from their June 2022 Box of the Month. Their December box is ADORABLE, by the way! I hadn't had a chance to ink it up yet, so this was the perfect excuse! {grin} I chose a pink, yellow, aqua color combo and got to work coloring up the image, adding in some neutral gray and brown to round things out.

For the block parameter I decided to colorblock the three colors, then emboss the birthday sentiment from their limited edition Abstract Botanicals set across them. The scalloped mat is from the Sunny Studios Mini Mat & Tag Dies 2 set, and I finished off with some photo corners from the Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Dies 3 set.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous start to this December weekend!
