November Harvest – Celebrate the Occasion

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend and that THIS week is off to a great start for you!


It’s team 2’s turn this week at Celebrate the Occasion, and our challenge this week is a make a Thanksgiving card and use a button. And this is what I came up with.


My card base is a standard A2 and is Papertrey Ink New Leaf. My patterned mat is Vintage Cream and measures 4” x 5.25.” I used a Studio G stamp set from the dollar bin at Wal-Mart, as well as a Stampabilities set from Hobby Lobby called Fall Holidays to create the background. My inks are from Stampin’ Up (Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler, and Chocolate Chip) and Jenni Bowlin (Malted Milk).


The pumpkin die cuts are from my Imagine. Once again, I used one of the stock images come preloaded on the machine. I really need to start using the carts that I continue to shell out money for. Anyway, the Orange Zest pumpkin was cut at 2.4” and I embossed it using the Perfectly Paisley Cuttlebug folder. The middle pumpkin was filled with a pattern from my go to cart, Ancestry, and is sized at 2.5.” I inked the edges with Tea Dye Distress ink. My last pumpkin was cut at 2 from Vintage Cream cardstock. I stamped the polka dots with Tangelo ink from Memento. I adhered the orange pumpkin directly to my card. I used dimensional adhesive to adhere the largest pumpkin, And the smallest pumpkin was adhered with a combination of both. I stamped my sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink on Vintage Cream cardstock and used my scissors to trim it. I adhered it to my card with dimensional adhesive as well. To finish off my card, I took some brown bakers twine from Martha Stewart and a Autumn Mix button from Papertrey Ink.


Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day!
