General Cards, Seasonal - Fall

A Season of Thankfulness

As Thanksgiving is here! I knew it was coming because I picked up my mother last week from the airport for her annual – “Thanksgiving and See all her Children in One Fell Swoop” trip.  She lives in Arizona… brother, sister and I all live in Virginia….but different parts of the state….so she goes from house to house to house.

My Card & Chat group recently made this card. It’s a good reminder to not let the holidays fly by, but to stop and give thanks for all the good things we have in our lives.


The leaves don’t turn on the trees where I live, so I have to fantasize through my cards.  This card might look hard to stamp, but it’s really easy.  I picked 7 shades of ink that reminded me of fall leaves.   From left to right, the colors are: Cherry Cobbler, Merry Merlot, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow.

The tree stamp is from the Timeless Tidings stamp set.


To make the rainbow of trees, I inked the stamp once and then stamped 3 times, moving the tree “backwards” in an angled line.  The first stamp is even with the edge of the card. For the second stamp I placed the image to the right up about 1/2 way and over about 1/2 way. I repeated that -over 1/2 way and up 1/2 way for the 3rd stamp. This gives the line a trees some depth with the darkest trees in the front and then fading as they go off into the distance.

Do you want to make this card?  This is what you’ll need:

  • TImeless Tidings Stamp Set (tree)
  • County Home Stamp Set (sentiment)
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock – Cut 5 1/2” x 8 1/2”; score at 4 1/4”
  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock – Cut 5 1/4” x 4”
  • Whisper White Cardstock – Cut 5” x 3 3/4”
  • Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Merry Merlot, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow

Since there are 7 different colors of ink on this card…..What are 7 things that you are thankful for this year?
