A Simple Thanksgiving Pumpkin

You know, sometimes it feels like I'm been cleaning and sorting for years.  I know, it's only be a couple of months.  How does any one collect so much "stuff"?  When I was cleaning out my craft supply closet, I put all of my scraps in a box and every now and again, I'll pull out some colors and make a card like today's Thanksgiving card.  As a former Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I have a lot of retired card stock and designer series paper.  I love how the Cajun Craze and Not Quite Navy card stock along with the Well Worn Designer Series Paper look together.  I have been concentrating on making my Thanksgiving cards to send to family and friends.  Here's my latest.

Stamp Sets:  Pumpkin (Studio G), A Season of Giving (Hero Arts); Inks:  Cajun Craze (Stampin' Up!), Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink (Ranger); Card Stock:  Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze and Well Worn Designer Series Paper (Stampin' Up!), Autumn Song Collection (Bo Bunny); Accessories & Tools:  Clear Embossing Powder (Stampin' Up!), White Doily (Bo Bunny), Pop Dots

I also added a sentiment to the inside of the card using the Cajun Craze card stock and clear embossed it as well.  I was going to add the rest of the doily but it looked rather odd, so I just left it off.  Although you can't see it, I stamped the pumpkin on the doily, then stamped it on some patterned paper, cut it out and used pop dots to attach it to the card.

A few more Thanksgiving cards and I can start in on those Christmas cards.  I have a few done but now that I've made my list, I have quite a few to go.

Until next time. . .happy creating!
