Give Thanks Set


100_3722       Autumn is my favorite season!  I love the change of outdoor scenery.  God’s canvas offers a lot to be inspired by!  Well, the leaves here in Virginia aren’t quite ready to change just yet but it won’t be long.  The weather is beginning to get cooler and nightfall is getting earlier.  I guess I’m ready for this change because I couldn’t wait to break out my French Foliage set and rich, warm and natural colors.  100_3752

     This cute little fall project was designed for my Stamp Club.  It features the use of the new Simply Scored tool, the beautiful Hand-Penned Holidays set, the sparkly Dazzling Details glitter glue and cute little 1” x 8” Cellophane Bags (all found in the current Holiday Mini Catalog).  The project also features Watercolor Crayons and the direct-to-stamp technique. 

100_3735     I am so loving the Simply Scored tool!  It really makes quick work of any scored project.  The medallion and the box were both made on the Simply Scored tool.  Why do you need a Simply Scored when you have the Paper Cutter with Scoring blade?  (I knew you would ask that.)  The answer…this tool is so much100_3745 quicker.  There is no lifting and realigning of the card stock.  Score lines are every 1/8”.  I only wish Stampin’ Up! offered it sooner :)  Trust me, it is a must have! 

     If you’d like to learn just how the Simply Scored works, consider hosting a workshop.  I’ll be happy to show you just how simple it is to create this lovely box & medallion. 

     Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you can find inspiration in the things you find outside your door :)



All supplies are Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased here.
