First Frost Thanksgiving Card


My color scheme was decided by the Paper Player’s Challenge #405:

And, my layout is from TGIF #172:


One of the most wonderful things about this First Frost stamp set are the two flowers.

You can achieve watercolored flowers without any water or effort. Just stamp a flower on a Stampin’ Ink Pad, and that’s all it takes. Really!

I used the colors Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight (So Saffron is in my next order).


The flowers were stamped on Very Vanilla, so the edges of the flowers would blend with the background, after cutting with their dies. I also used a fabulous, little sprig die, which looks like Baby’s Breath in this bouquet.

“Happy Thanksgiving” is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, and punched with the Classic Label punch.

Before gluing everything in place, I stamped the background branch with leaves in Old Olive. I’ll be using this set A LOT!

Have I enticed you to order some of the products I used in today’s card? Just click on the pictures to shop at my store. I’d love to be your demonstrator. Have a great day!
