Are you ready? Thanksgiving is almost here, and we’ve actually had cool crisp weather in Southern California! I love it! I can bake and not have to run the air conditioning! I used this week’s Retro Sketches challenge to make one more Thanksgiving card.
The three layers in this card made me want to make another triple time stamping card, with the layers offset like this one instead of centered.
Stamps: Wonderfall, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Early Espresso
Paper: More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Other: Bitty Banner Framelits

It is a cold and rainy day here in Southern California — it is finally feeling like Fall! What better to do than stay inside and stamp? I combined the Freshly Made Sketches challenge with the Friday Mashup (Fall leaves & Thank You) for today’s card.
The sketch really looks like a card in a pocket to me, but I just wasn’t happy with any of my ideas for that, so I went with just a regular card instead.
Stamps: Perfectly Penned
Ink: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
Paper: Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Whisper White, Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper
Other: More Mustard Dotted Scallop Ribbon, Early Espresso Stitched 1/4″ Grosgrain, Corner Rounder
I used Whisper White card stock instead of Very Vanilla because of the white stitching in the ribbon. I hope that you will stop back tomorrow for Day 3 of the Hanukkah Blog Hop! I have an elegant Hanukkah card for you. I can’t wait to see what the other women make!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to combine three challenges, but these three just work so well together that I couldn’t help myself. I am using the sketch from Nacho Average Challenges, the theme (Elegant Autumn) from SUO Challenges, and the inspiration from the Stampin’ Celebration Inspiration Challenge.
I am very excited that I found my watercolor paper, as I may have mentioned one or two (hundred) times lately. For this card I pulled out my watercolor crayons, too! I embossed the outline of the leaf with Early Espresso embossing powder, and the blended my More Mustard and Cherry Cobbler crayons to achieve the look I wanted. Isn’t it pretty? If I can’t have fall leaves here in Southen California, I’ll make them myself!
Stamps: Gently Falling
Paper: More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Watercolor Paper, Champagne Glimmer Paper
Other: Watercolor Wonder Crayons (More Mustard & Cherry Cobbler), Aqua Painter, 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, 3″ Circle Die, Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, Wood Grain Embossing Folder
Oh yes, I am definitely going to need to get back to using my Watercolor Wonder Crayons! They are so much fun! If you haven’t tried these, I highly recommend them.

I hope you enjoyed the Stampin’ Addicts My Digital Studio Mini Blog Hop. If you didn’t get a chance to see the hop, the links are still up. You also still have time to download your digital freebies from Stampin’ Up, so be sure to do that by the end of the day on Monday. I finally had a chance to play along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
Isn’t that a great sketch? Now that I finally found my watercolor paper, I wanted to use it. I had forgotten how much fun it is to use an aquapainter and reinkers on watercolor paper. I love how vivid the colors look!

Well, the weather outside here in Southern California may not seem anything like Autumn, but today is my first day back at work for the 2010-2011 school year! I thought it only fitting to post a nice Autumn card for the occasion. My friend and downline Samantha came over to stamp with me one day a couple of weeks ago, and brought this great stamp set with her. I love these leaves so much and was super excited to use it!
Stamps: Autumn Splendor, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, More Mustard
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Whisper White
Other: Pumpkin Pie Satin Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Matchbox Bigz XL Die, Big Shot
That great tag is from the Matchbox Die. Whenever I die cut one of the matchboxes, I always try to do a few extra tags to have on hand. Happy new school year to everyone, whenever you start.
