"Gently Falling" Thanksgiving Card

Hello!  Hope you are enjoying your Saturday and perhaps stamping while the guys are watching football today!  lol!  That's my story-- although I will turn on the TV to watch our two Oklahoma teams, OU and OSU, play their opponents this evening while I stamp!!  Boomer Sooner and Go Cowboys!!  {smile}

Today's card again uses the beautiful two-step stamping "Gently Falling" set (which I used previously for this card).  I really like this set and am very glad I got it!  Actually I received an additional discount on it because of  my demonstrator title; it was part of the Spice Cake Product Bundle for demos to pre-order.. another perk of being an SU demo!  You should join me-- it will change your life!  : )

I used the colors from the Spice Cake Product Suite for this card:  Cajun Craze, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, More Mustard, River Rock, Soft Suede and Not Quite Navy.  (I seem to be lovin' that Not Quite Navy these days!! ..used a lot of it lately!).  I used sponges and daubers to add the various inks to my solid stamps before stamping, then stamped the bold outlines afterwards.  I used our new product Dazzling Details around on some of the bold lines but sadly don't think I caught  any of those gorgeous sparkles in my photo (it was a cloudy day when I took these pics).

The banner is stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock with a greeting from the Falling Leaves set, edges sponged and some more Dazzling Details added periodically around the edges.  It is finished with one of the verry cute little Mini Clips in brass.
This picture shows the detail of the new-to-the-2011 Catalog Lace Border Punch; it's a beauty!!  At about 1-1/4" wide, it makes quite a statement on a card--love it!  This is one you'll definitely want to add to your collection!  It is punched from More Mustard cardstock, backed with Pool Party and edged with Not Quite Navy.  I used the new Island Indigo In Color Ruffled Ribbon to run through and knot in the center of each "doily-like" portion of the lace;  love how the Island Indigo works perfectly with Not Quite Navy and the other colors used here.

I lightly stamped two different leaf outlines and added a narrow strip of the Not Quite Navy on the inside to dress it up and stamped the "Happy Thanksgiving" greeting from the Curly Cute greeting set (which has the most adorable font!)

All of these products are found in the 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog and the 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog.  They can be purchased through your demonstrator, or if you don't have one, I'd love to have you order through my official Stampin' Up! website here

Thanks for visiting today!  I wish you a safe and happy weekend!
