FMS146 Give Thanks

Hi Stampers! 
I wanted to create a card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches FMS146 Challenge and decided to incorporate My Digital Studio (MDS) with traditional card making techniques and our new Stampin’ Blendabilities™ :-)

I hope you will find the time to visit the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge site- gorgeous Design Team cards as well as a fabulous gallery of entries!

To create this card:

Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the oak leaf image from Lovely As A Tree and print out onto Whisper White cardstock.  

Color the image using Stampin’ Blendabilities™ - Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Collections (layering the colors).  

Carefully “fussy-cut” around the image and mount using Stampin’ Dimensionals® onto a 2 ½” circle of cardstock (previously embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).

Layer a 2 ½” circle of Cherry Cobbler cardstock behind the embossed Crumb Cake. 

Layer a piece of the retired Parker’s Patterns and Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock, creating the banner points using the Hexagon Punch. 

Use the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge along with Soft Suede Classic Ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment from the retired set, Best of Autumn using Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink at the bottom of the card front.

Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trim and mount onto the Very Vanilla card base.

Adhere the two banners to the card front and add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Lovely As A Tree (MDS version), Gorgeous Grunge, Best of Autumn (retired)

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Stampin’ Blendabilities™ - Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Collections

Paper: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, retired Parkers Patterns, Venetian Romance DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, 2 ½” Circle Punch, Hexagon Punch

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
