Hello! It's time for a new ColourQ challenge, and this week's palette was just what I needed to get another card whipped up for Thanksgiving. Check it out:
I wound up adding just a touch of dark brown for the frame and sentiment, too.
I first tried stamping PTI's Houndstooth pattern directly onto the white card base, but it was looking a little too busy for what I had in mind, so I stamped the pattern in Versamark onto Pear Pizzazz and Rich Razzleberry cardstock strips and adhered them to the card.
I had a scrap piece of kraft cardstock that was embossed with woodgrain, so I used it to die cut a frame with PTI's Mat Stack 4 and Fillable Frames #10. I cut a piece of white cardstock with the same Mat Stack and stamped the frame and a sentiment from 2009 Autumn Tags.
To embellish the frame, I simply inked up the two pumpkins from WPlus9's Season of Thanks using Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write marker, then cut them out by hand.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz), Papertrey Ink (Kraft, white)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames #10, 2009 Autumn Tags, Background Basics: Houndstooth), WPlus9 (Season of Thanks)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip), Ranger (Spiced Marmalade), Versamark
Tools: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 4, Fillable Frames #10 dies, Woodgrain impression plate)
I need to finish up my Thanksgiving cards to get them in the mail by the end of the week, so I'll definitely be looking to your creations using this week's challenge colors for inspiration!
I'm planning a special week-long event to celebrate Thanksgiving here on my blog starting this Thursday, so I hope you'll stop by.
Have a great day, friends!
