Hello, there! Marge here with you today.
To begin , I made a background panel using Stacked Edges 1 Die. I used scallop shape die to cut three different colored card stock papers which are natural, kraft, and brown. Then I stacked the pieces one by one, using double sided tapes behind the stacked die cuts. I then cut the panel into an A2 sized rectangle and then adhered it onto a card base.
I stamped images from Happy Turkey Stamp Set on a white card stock, colored them using copic markers, then cut them using Happy Turkey Coordinating Dies. To give more autumn mood to the card, I chose a pumpkin piece from Stitched Foliage Dies, and ink blended it using distress inks : Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Rusty Hinge. For a lovely shaker frame, I cut a rectangle frame using Scallop Frames Dies, Now it’s time to arrange them all together and check if they look okay and I really loved how it came out with these variable elements.
I stamped “Happy Turkey Day” sentiment on an Acetate film with versamark ink, and heat set it with gold embossing powder. My favorite thing to do in cardmaking is to put various sequins in the shaker! I used Metallic Gold Confetti Mix, Marshmallow Confetti Mix, Autumn Harvest Sequins Mix, Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix, Champagne Sequins, and Espresso Sequins.
Tip: I adhered a few sequins here and there, so that all the sequins are not falling down when you hold it up.
After I finished shaker, I adhered the turkey and leaves on the outer surface of the window.
Stamping, die cutting, putting sequins are all similar with the first card. To make a twine ribbon, I punched a tiny hole in the mini maple leaf, passed a piece of string through it, then tied a bow.
Finally, I brushed Clear Wink of Stella on the the stamped images to give interests. You can see glitter effects on leaves here.
Thank you for reading this post. We hope you enjoy the rest of our Thanksgiving Theme Week!
Blessings to all of you.
