Here’s a simple Thanksgiving card for you!
To make the two-toned leaves,
- Ink up the solid leaf stamp from the Colorful Seasons stamp set with Crushed Curry ink.
- Take a sponge dauber and literally ink up just the edges of that same stamp with Pumpkin Pie ink, and then stamp on to Very Vanilla scrap piece of cardstock.
- Ink up the same solid leaf stamp again with Pumpkin Pie ink.
- Take a sponge dauber and literally ink up just the edges of that same stamp with Cherry Cobbler ink, and stamp on to Very Vanilla scrap piece of cardstock.
Here’s Project 4 from the Holiday Extravaganza! It was a CASE of Chris Slogar’s card found HERE. She is one talented lady! 🙂
Here’s a card we made at September’s Stamp Club. Have you tried the new Expressions Thinlits? LOVE THEM but remember to use wax paper inbetween the Thinlit and cardstock!
When you are done, be sure and clean the wax paper out of the Thinlit!

Here is a Thanksgiving card that we made at Stamp Club this month! I saw the turkey made out of the bird punch a year ago on Lynn Pratt’s blog HERE. I am amazed at her creativity!!!

This month for our weSTAMP get together we brought in a guest speaker, Danielle Wurth! Danielle is a professional organizer and has even written a book! You can find her website HERE.
I noticed many of our weSTAMPERS voiced the same problem I have, and that was TRYING TO KEEP our stamping areas in order, and NOT look like a tornado had just ripped through it. Granted, the space DOES get messy when we are creating, but if it tends to stay like that, then we need help! Danielle shared with us many tips to keeping our crafting areas more organized and efficient, WITHOUT having to purchase more containers or furniture! What a BLESSING she was to our group! She even shared tips for other areas in our house that could use some work, too!
We had such a wonderful evening with Danielle, and I’m so thankful to her for coming to speak to our weSTAMPERS!
Maggie’s swap: (There is candy and a battery operated flickering light inside the luminary. She stamped on a window sheet in the hole.)
Eileen’s swap: (Tea holder, and below you can see it opened up.)
Linda R’s swap:
Glenda’s swap: (Background made using a dryer sheet! Tutorial can be found HERE.
Lorri’s swap: (Bookmarks! Idea came from Becky Roberts, who shared these at a recent Regional Conference AND it was also in Stampin’ Success magazine for Stampin’ Up demonstrators this month!) You can also find these in her 12 Days of Christmas 2010 tutorial found HERE.)
Last but not least, this adorable door prize was made by Maggie (She also made the luminary swap) and won by lucky Stephanie (pictured below). The pumpkin has a battery operated flickering tea light inside!
One of the projects we made this month at Stamp Club was this Thanksgiving Treat Box. I saw the idea on Debbie’s blog, which can be found HERE. She has an easy to follow tutorial for these boxes on her blog. She is super creative, check out her blog!

Here’s a Thanksgiving card I sent to Brittany, our daughter who is studying abroad in England this semester.
The fold for this turkey was featured in our Stampin’ Up magazine a couple of months ago. I did find a tutorial that Christine came out with to show how to make the folds. You can find it HERE. THANKS Christine, for taking the time to post this!!
