Stamped Thanksgiving Cards

Yeah - you read that right... Thanksgiving. You have exactly 28 day, 7 hours, 43 minutes and 2 seconds until the big day.... depending on when you are reading this.

I wanted to get an early start and wanted to share a few of my stamped cards. Three of these cards use a set of acrylic stamps from Art Warehouse called "Autumn Days". It has several titles and greetings, a variety of images and two long definition strips. Great for both cards and scrapbooking.

For this card I used Basic Grey papers. I machine stitched around the edges of the cardstock that the image is stamped on. I used Clearsnap "Vivid" ink (coffee bean).

For this card I used Basic Grey and Autumn Leaves papers. The turkey is stamped, and the greeting is made from rub ons.

This card (still using the Autumn Days stamp set) uses 7Gypsies and Fancy Pants papers. These papers and the embellishments came in the November Cupcardstogo Card Kit.

This last card uses a stamped tag. The tag, papers and embellishments are also from the Cupcardstogo November kit. The tag was pre-stamped. I added orange Stickles (from Ranger) to each of the leaves. Really, it wasn't that hard, and it sure makes the leaves sparkle. You can see the step-by-step instructions for this card HERE.

I hope I've given you a few ideas and inspiration for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!
