Give Thanks!

I've been wanting to put this set from The Rummage Bin, All Things Fall, available through Cornish Heritage Farms to good use since we are in full-fall mode around with Halloween knockin' at the door, so I chose to use it for Jen's Saturday Sketch For You To Try this week. I just love the corn image and the coordinating sentiment, "Eat your corn!", along with so many others in the set. To see the set in its entirety click right here.

The colors here are Old Olive, Kraft and Very Vanilla with a couple punches of Really Rust. I know, not necessarily your traditional fall color scheme, but I really wanted to use OO craft ink on Kraft for some reason...one of those color combos that just pops in your head, KWIM?! I started by stamping Baroque background in craft ink and then sidelined it with a strip of OO stamped with Aida Cloth in Versamark. The off set layers are stamped with various All Things Fall images in Versafine Onyx Black and then sponged on the edges with Ranger Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.

Punches, punches, punches! As you can see I've used three wonderful punches, all from SU!: large oval, curly label and word window, flanking each with embellishments--button/faux thread and a mini library clip. To highlight my scarecrow, I flipped the image over and dry embossed a frame around him using my Score-Pal. My scoring/embossing lines aren't perfect as you can see if you look closely, but I just told myself--that's the beauty of a handmade card! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Have a great weekend all, and be sure to hop on over to Jen's blog for the original sketch and to see what she and guest designer Nancy Riley have done with the sketch. Then, get yourself on over to the blogs of the rest of the gals: Carole, Shannan, Susan and Amy!
