Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #75

This is the sketch on Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week!  Right up my alley with the opportunity to use scraps!  

I rotated the sketch and made Thanksgiving cards to use as invitations for my family!  I made 8 of the beauties and none of them were exactly the same because I make them all from scraps!

Supplies I used were Pathfinding paper, Durable Artisan Studs and a retired stamp set but the Beyond Measure stamp set would work great for this card! THis stamp set is only $6.95 too!
 Beyond Measure
I also entered this in the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge to use 3 sets of pairs!  I have a pair of pumpkins (the base and the word overlay), two Durable Artisan Studs and 2 patterned papers (actually 4).

Only ONE DAY LEFT to get the September Stamp of the Month and the National Stamping Month stamp!  Also only one more day to entered in the Drawing for a Workshop on the Go for Free!  Go here to find out how!

The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter T

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter T.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their T element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

My T this week is Tag and Thin 3-D Foam Tape .  
One of the best things about tags is they are quick and easy!  Of course you could make them complicated but they can also be just a stamp and a couple of embellies and a little ribbon or not!

I also created this for little red wagon, anything fall challenge!  It uses the Pathfinding paper, Lifetime of Happiness stamps, Glacier, Cocoa and Flaxen inks and Gold Shimmer Trim!

The bow, flower and leaves plus the sentiment are stamped from the Lifetime of Happiness stamp set! 

The tag is just a rectangle with the corners cut off or you could cut it on the Art Philosophy Cartridge if you wanted to do several!  

The patterned papers are just trimmed to fit and layered with the White Daisy that the sentiment is stamped on!  A little bling with the Gold Shimmer Trim and the then layer the stamped flower, leaves and bow using a little of our new Thin 3-D Foam Tape  as you go!

If you haven't discovered out new Thin 3-D Foam Tape you are in for a treat!  Especially if you like the lift of foam tape or pop dots but don't like how thick it sometimes makes it, especially for mailing cards! It is only 1mm thick!  Thick enough to be noticeable but not be too thick!

Viola! A cute fall tag! Click here to see some of my other tags!

A perfect stamp set for tags is the National Stamping Month Free stamp! #30yearsofhappy is free with the purchase of $30 in stamps! Only a few days left to get it before it is gone!
