Fall/Thanksgiving Layout

I have a Thanksgiving layout to share with you today.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, Olivia Paper Packet (retired), Bronze Glitter Glitz, Mini-Medley Accents Antiqued Gold, Artiste Cricut cartridge, Gold Metallics Marker, and inks (Autumn Terracotta, Olive, & Cocoa).

To get the different colors on the leaves, I first inked in Autumn Terracotta, then using sponge daubers added Olive and Cocoa before stamping.  I love the look!   All the stamps I used are from the Seasons stamp set which is included in the Art Philosophy Collection.  The title is cut from the Artiste cartridge.

I used this sketch from Sketch Support:

Stamp Sunday #41: Harvest Happiness

I missed posting this on Sunday so here you go.

C1463 Harvest Happiness

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Harvest Happiness stamp set, Mini-Medley Accents Antiqued Gold, Bronze Glitter Glitz, Cocktail Alphabet stamp set, Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and inks (Autumn Terracotta, Cocoa, and Goldrush).  Sketch from Got Sketch.

This stamp set is one that coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I just love this!  I cut the leaves in the upper left of the page with the Art Philosophy cartridge then stamped my image, so much faster and easier than cutting them out by hand!  I created the border along the left with one of the leaf images and added Glitter Glitz throughout the page for some bling.
