Gifts of the Earth - Mojo/411

Hello friends! Today's cards are for two different sketch challenges but use the same Gifts of the Earth stamp set which is from the up coming Holiday Mini Catalog. The first card above is for the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge, I enjoyed using this sketch just as much as last weeks and was so surprised when the card I created for last weeks 411 challenge was chosen as one of the top five. You can click here to view the top five 411 challenge cards chosen.
For this card I used a Chocolate Chip card base, then More Mustard stamped with the Sanded back ground stamp and added a 2 3/4"x 5 1/4" panel of the Autumn Traditions designer paper. The main image was stamped, cut and embossed using my Nesties die and colored with an aqua brush and SU markers. The large saying is from the stamp set Grateful Greetings which is also in the up coming Holiday Mini Catalog and the Grateful saying is from the stamp set Falling Leaves.


Supplies: Gifts of the Earth, Autumn Traditions DSP, Grateful Greetings, Falling Leaves, Sanded, Ribbon, Brads, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Aqua brush, Markers, Nestie, Pop dots. Colors: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Summer Sun, Going Grey, Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red, Creamy Carmel.

This second card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and uses the turkey from the Gifts of the Earth stamp set. The card base is Chocolate Chip, then the next panel is the In Color Soft Suede with the bottom portion stamped with the Weathered back ground stamp in Close to Cocoa. The pine cone paper is from the Autumn Traditions designer paper and the circular Happy Thanksgiving is from the stamp set Falling Leaves which was stamped in Soft Suede. The little acorn was stamped in Close to Cocoa and then I took a Chocolate Chip marker to the top of it, then stamped it and punched it out with a circle punch and pop dotted it. For some odd reason in this picture the Chocolate Chip ribbon looks like it doesn't match but IRL it matches great, hmmm.

Supplies: Gifts of the Earth, Weathered BG, Autumn Tradition DSP, Falling Leaves, Nestie, Ribbon, Circle punches, Aqua brush, Piercer, Pop dots. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, More Mustard, Ruby Red.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
