Today I'm using some seasonal fall colors. Our challenge here at Tuesday Throwdown is to use inchies. Our sponsor this week is Catherine Pooler, a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. She sent each of us a great pkg of goodies to use. Many possibilities with the inchies but I took the easy way out and used it for a background. I cut my white paper into squares and went around each one with chalks. I used the little flower Catherine sent to stamp some of the inches. I then attached them to another sheet of paper and trimmed, stitched around and mounted on the darker base. I used a scalloped nestie to cut out the matching dp and then a smaller white one. I drew the fall wreath and water colored. With Thanksgiving just around the corner I decided used this sentiment. I have a roof over my head and food on the table so I really do have much to be thankful for!



Lastly I stamped and cut out three leaves and an acorn to hang off the hand dyed ribbon.
Stop by and join the fun this week. :)

  12. WOW!...You drew that wreath all by yourself? More of your hidden talents. You should design stamps and have your own business. Beautiful card with a clever use of the inchy and the colors are nice and subtle.

  20. Davi, oh my gosh, this is lovely. You put so much love and care into making it. I didn't realize when I first looked at the thumbnail pic that the background was made of inchies! This is something else. Love the touch of the leaves and acorn, I think that is my favorite element with the hand dyed ribbon. You are a marvelously creative lady!

    Thank you so much for participating with us at Opus Gluei!
