Early this year I came across a delightful Art Impressions stamp set called "Full of Thanks". It was perfect for Thanksgiving and so I put it aside. Miraculously I'm actually using it for a Thanksgiving card as planned. (I don't know about you, but my plans frequently go wonky). Of course the star of every Thanksgiving is the turkey and for my family, it's all about the dressing.
I decided to concentrate on another definition of the verb "to dress". Isn't he a handsome young bird? The colours I've used are all taken from the gorgeous Designer Paper in the background. I think Stampin' Up! brought it out at least eight or nine years ago (yes, it's retired) and I finally decided to raid my stash. Hoarding paper is something I don't seem to be able to stop doing.
My base is the Heavy Very Vanilla followed by a layer of plain Designer Paper and then the layer of cross-stitch Designer Paper. Vertically to the right I've added a strip of Designer Paper featuring corn cobs in a variety of wonderful colours, with a matte of Soft Suede behind it. My wonderful turkey image is attached with Dimensionals, on a matte of Cajun Craze.
The sentiment says it all! I love it and hope you do, too.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
