Thanksgiving & Christmas

I already made an Autumn card with the PFS Hello with a Bouquet die, so pulled out the Dainty Blossoms die set to make this card for the PFS October Challenge
I still had the plaid paper out from a previous card & wanted to finally use the EH Hex Frames I won when they were released.  The sentiment from PFS Delicate Wreath was stamped in Versafine Clair Acorn on the brown textured card front.  I really like these SSS brown sequins as they add some bling without detracting from the focal point.  I'm also entering COF where my friend, Cat, is the GD.

You probably know I love pink, so no surprise I made an entry for the October Poppystamps Think Pink challenge.  The beautiful Twirly Whirly Tree was a gift a long time ago & finally I used it.  Haven't made a shaker in ages & love how this turned out.  
I only used 1 layer of foam tape to keep it from being too thick.  I really wanted the shaker mix mostly for sparkle, so I just used Stampendous Shaved Ice & seed beads which worked great.  
The PFS sentiment is die cut from vellum & silver glitter tape.  Pink, gray & silver--love that combo!  I'm also entering WAW.

Stamplorations Belated 7th anniversary celebration has lots of ways to win.  One of them is to post a picture of your Stamplorations stash.  I have a variety of stencils, stamps & dies.  
Some of these goodies are yet to be used, but now I can cross the Peace, Love, Joy phrase die off the list!  
Glitter cardstock can be pretty expensive, but glitter fun foam is really cheap!  The gold one isn't my favorite shade, so instead I bought the bronze which is really beautiful! 
I dry embossed a green panel with the Richard Garay Lumberjack Days ef & colored a little wooden star with a red Copic to match the card front.  Simple card, but I love it!  I'm entering the 7th Birthday Linky Party since Christmas is the celebration of Christ's birth.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  10. I love that plaid and hex frame. The shaker tree card is so pretty done in pink and I like that glitter foam. A great idea to use it to cut out words and they look so shiny and pretty against that lovely green embossed background.
