Thankful Jar of Haunts for TSOT295

Good morning!  Today the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday design team is having a blog hop rather than posting our creations to the TSOT blog.  So be sure to check out all of today’s creations!

We all started with this sketch, TSOT295.

TSOT295 Sketch

And, we’re all working with a holiday theme.

The first thing that came to mind for me as we moved from October to November was Thanksgiving.  So, I created a clean and simple card for the occasion.

I used a Very Vanilla card base and layered it with a piece of Halloween Night designer paper.  There are lots of designs in this pack that extend well past Halloween!

Using a sentiment from Sheltering Tree and Early Espresso ink, I stamped my “thankful for you” in the lower right.

My focal layer is another piece of Very Vanilla.

I stamped the pumpkin from Jar of Haunts in Pumpkin Pie ink.  Then I used a Blender Pen and ink from the lid to color the pumpkin.  Once it was colored to my satisfaction, I stamped the pumpkin again – but with Tangerine Tango this time.

For the stem and vine, I used my Garden Green and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.  After stamping this piece, I again used my Blender Pen but this time swiped it across the markers to pick up color.  This allowed me to color in but have some tonal variation.

Next, I used my Gold Wink of Stella.  After squeezing it to get it really juicy, I flicked on some shimmery gold splatter.

Finally, I tied on a piece of 1/4″ Gold Natural Trim and tucked in pieces of Gold Sequin Trim and Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim.

Thanks for stopping by to see my Thankful Jar of Haunts Thanksgiving card.
