Thanksgiving Combo

 How about a favor for the Thanksgiving dinner table?  Verve has the cutest turkey that I used to decorate my pillowbox. Hey Julee, sure wish there was a die for this little fellow.

I also made a card using the little turkey. I think the peek-a-boo chevron is a fun addition to the card. The sentiment is made with the double-ended banner die. After I die cut the shape I put it back in the die the opposite direction to get the pointed end.

Here is a look at both projects. I just need to make a few more and my Thanksgiving table would be complete.

I can't decide what to put inside my pillowbox.  Any suggestions? ~Rhonda

Snowflake Tags

Tis the season to begin some tags or it won't happen. These were simple to make. I stamped Tag Sale #7 with the background stamp first. If you have background stamps you need to be using them. It is amazing how make interest they add to a project. 

The top snowflake I spritzed with Mister Huey's Shine. I love the added sparkle. I have been using my sewing machine a little more as well. It is really nice when you are making several of the same item. 

Thanks for stopping by! ~Rhonda

Time is . . .

the MOST valuable thing that anyone can spend! I love this sentiment. It is a great reminder. A quick card using PTI's Hands of Time. 

You can hardly go wrong when you are stamping lots of grungy effects. I think the key is to keep layering the colors and stamps. I think sometimes I "quit" to quick.

I hope you are enjoying sweater weather in your part of the world. ~Rhonda

Autumn Tags

I went a little crazy playing with re-inkers, distress inks, etc and created a pretty paper that I turned into tags for autumn.

The 1st tag is the gratitude tag. I die cut the apple several times from cereal box cardboard and then went to town with the glitter. I hope you can see the background stamping near the bottom of the tag. LOVE it!

The 2nd tag is the leaf. I used the chicken wire stencil across the bottom. Modeling paste is really easy to use and dries quickly. You need to give it a try. 

Have a great week! ~Rhonda
