Peace, Love, Joy

This card is for CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for October.  It is a little larger than I usually make, 6x6, but I wanted to use the Anna Griffin 6x6 paper with the gold border.  The green patterned paper is also Anna Griffin.  I used a new line of dies for this card.  The line is Simply Refined by Scrapbooking Made Simple. There are four sets of dies in this limited collection.  I purchased them all.  The dies are interchangeable so I mixed them up for my card.  I used dies from three of the sets.  The gold is from Spellbinders Precious Metals.  I bought them about three years ago and never even opened them until I made this card.   The stamp is part of the sets of dies.  Because the gold was metallic, I used black Stazon ink to stamp it.  For the green die cut, I used DCWV foil.

Happy Thanksgiving

Can you take one more owl card?  Does it look like I like owls?  Well, here is what I think might be my last owl card for this Christmas season.  It is made with an .svg file from Miss Kate Cuttables.  The ribbon is from a package I received several years ago.  I just untied the bow and saved the ribbon.  The stickers are from Basic Grey Indian Summer.  The stamp is an Impression Obsession from a couple years ago.

I just love fall and the colors that represent it.  Here is another card for the season.  Actually, it is a Thanksgiving card due to the dp I used.  I cut the Miss Kate Cuttables image using my Silhouette Cameo.  I think the ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The dp is from Karen Foster.  The card base is Stampin' Up.  I added Crackle Accents to the cornucopia to give it a little character.  I added Stickles to the pumpkin and inside of the cornucopia.
