Thankful For You

Hi Stampers!

Today is Tuesday which means a new Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge! This week our theme is Thanksgiving. Here is what I came up with for my Design Team Inspiration project...

For my project, this image is actually a little witch but I cut the pointy end of the hat off and made it look like she has a fancy straw hat instead of a witch hat.  This adorable little "witch" is from Sweet Pea Stamps Elisabeth Bell Collection and is called Wispy Willow with Pumpkin. I thought it was so cute I wanted to use it for more than just Halloween! I colored her using Spectrum Noir markers.

My vertical panel is made by stamping the Food Word Collage Stamp from Impression Obsession multiple times to make my own background paper. My other papers that I used are from the Bo Bunny Apple Cider 6x6 paper pack.

The flower I had made about 6 months ago and it has been sitting on my desk staring at me with it's one pearl wondering if I would ever use it on a project. Well, I finally found the right one for it :) I had come across a video showing how to make a melted satin ribbon flower and had to try it right that second so that is how this flower came to be. I think they are really cool looking so I will be making some more. Here is a close up of my flower...

I accented my card with some flourishes cut from glitter paper for a touch of bling using My Favorite Things Die-Namics Fancy Flourish Die. My sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Collection - Turkey Time. The layout that I used is from Sketchy Colors:

Hope you will play along with us this week!
Happy Stampin!
